Upstream oil & gas

Iraq, Chevron to resume drilling in Kurdistan

U.S. oil major Chevron has announced that it intends to resume drilling in the oil-rich, semi-autonomous Kurdistan region of Iraq as tensions lessen between Kurdistan Regional Government and Baghdad. The firm plans to drill the Sarta 3 well, north of Erbil.

It had temporarily halted exploration work in October, 2017.

Oil operations faced disruptions in the northern part of the country as the Kurds voted favouring independence last September. This compelled Baghdad to dispatch forces to take control of the Kirkuk oilfield from the Kurdish government.

Even though the future of this region is still not certain, the situation has not worsened, which has returned hopes for Chevron to restart operations. Chevron has been operating in Kurdistan since 2012.

Ivory Coast, Country awards Tullow two new oil, gas blocks

Ivory Coast has recently awarded Tullow Oil Plc two new oil and gas blocks, including one along the maritime boundary with Ghana, said government spokesman Bruno Kone.

Tullow now holds stakes in nine Ivorian blocks, eight of which it has picked up since an international tribunal ruled in favor of Ghana in a dispute over the countries' sea border.

Speaking after a cabinet meeting, Kone said the government had awarded Tullow blocks CI-520, an onshore block near the commercial capital Abidjan, and CI-524, which is adjacent to its acreage in Ghana.
Tullow operates the Jubilee oil and gas field in Ghanaian waters and is developing the TEN fields.
Having emerged from one of the longest downturns in the sector's history, Tullow is now cautiously reviving its search for new oil and gas resources in Africa and Latin America.

Papua New Guinea, Exxon discovers new oil and gas reserves

Energy giant Exxon Mobil has announced that it has discovered new natural gas and oil reserves in Papua New Guinea's Western Province and has begun evaluating the find.

The company has stated that it drilled almost 9000 feet into the earth at the P'nyang field, discovering "high-quality, hydrocarbon-bearing sandstone reservoirs". The find adds to the American company's growing inventory of low cost natural gas in the country, where it operates the Liquefied Natural Gas Project.

This includes reserves acquired in Exxon's recent purchase of InterOil Corporation, as well as various other gas resources around PNG's Highlands and Southern regions. Liam Mallon, president of ExxonMobil Development Company, said the company and its co-venture partners are in the process of evaluating the well results and assessing how to develop the resource.

Downstream oil & gas

Saudi Arabia, Saudi Aramco signs deal with CB&I, Chevron

Saudi Arabian oil company Saudi Aramco has signed a pact with U.S. engineering company CB&I and oil major Chevron Corp. to enhance and commercialize technology expected to boost the Kingdom's chemical output, the company announced recently.

The world's largest oil company said it struck the deal with CB&I and Chevron Lummus Global, a joint venture between Chevron and CB&I, to further develop thermal crude-cracking technology that can produce chemicals directly from oil.

Saudi Aramco developed the technology to increase its chemical output in recent years, accelerating the Kingdom's efforts to diversify its economy and raise employment levels. Under the recent deal, the companies will utilize Chevron Lummus Global's hydro processing technologies and CB&I's ethylene cracker technology to enhance Saudi Aramco's technology.

"Saudi Aramco is going beyond the quick wins and is instead prioritizing investments in research and development and technology," Saudi Aramco CEO Amin Hasser said in a statement. He called the joint development agreement a "technological first" which will "position Saudi Aramco to maximize the value of each barrel of crude oil it processes in the near future."

United States, SNC-Lavalin wins downstream contract

SNC-Lavalin has announced that it has signed a Master Services Agreement, with approximate worth in excess of USD $100M, with one of the world's largest plastics, chemical and refining companies.

The scope includes provision of all engineering support for the client's Gulf Coast facilities. SNC-Lavalin has said that it will utilize its downstream capabilities to increase performance, improve processing, and ensure a partnership with the client to meet their long term goals on their facilities.

"We are excited to work with our client in their downstream projects across multiple facilities on the Gulf Coast," said Joseph Lichon, Executive Vice-President, Americas, Oil & Gas, SNC-Lavalin. "Our innovation and market-tailored technical solutions in every stage of our client's projects enable us to provide considerable cost and production efficiencies on such projects. We are seeing a return to strength of the downstream sector, and we are working closely with a number of clients on future opportunities in this important area for refined product and chemicals production."

Power generation

United Kingdom, New national record set for wind power

Output from UK wind farms has topped 10 gigawatts for the first time, setting a new national record. The news was welcomed by experts, who say it is evidence the UK is "poised to lead its peers in wind generation".

"Breaking short-term output records on top of monthly and annual figures clearly shows that wind is now a major part of the UK electricity mix, and will continue to be in the future," said Dr Jonathan Marshall, energy analyst at the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit. According to Dr Marshall, the UK possesses some of the windiest regions in Europe, meaning it is in a position to lead on European wind power generation.

"The opening of new infrastructure to transport power south from the windy hills of Scotland is ramping up – and will help to reduce the whole system cost of wind – while technologies to manage variable output are rapidly becoming cheaper," he said.

UAE, Adnoc to triple its petrochemical production

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) is planning to increase its crude refining capacity in non-OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries by at least 60 percent and triple its petrochemical production as part of its future growth strategy, its chief executive officer said recently in a statement.

"This proposed expansion will create a single largest integrated refining and chemical site in the world in Ruwais in the UAE," said Dr Sultan Ahmad Al Jaber speaking at the Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum.

"Once complete we will convert almost 20 percent of our crude into chemicals, diversifying our range of higher value products and providing a natural hedge to oil price movements." He also said hydrocarbons will continue to play a vital role to meet global energy demand despite increase in the diversity of energy mix.

Gulf energy ministers as well as top executives from different companies are taking part in the two day forum that will focus on geopolitics of the energy transformation and developments in oil and gas and renewable energy industry.

United States, Air Liquide to supply new biodiesel plant

Air Liquide Engineering and Construction, a multinational industrial gas and services company, has signed a new agreement with Cargill for engineering and supply of a world-scale biodiesel plant in Kansas, United States. The "state-of-the-art'' plant is slated to start operation in January 2019 and is expected to produce 60 million gallons per year (MMgy).

According to the company, the agreement is another step in the long-term partnership between the two companies. Air Liquide Engineering and Construction has already built six biodiesel plants for Cargill worldwide.

"We are delighted to sign a new agreement with our long-standing customer, Cargill,'' said Domenico D'Elia, vice president and chairman of Air Liquide Engineering and Construction. "We extend our leadership in Europe and Asia in this field and our ambition is to achieve the same result in the Americas."

Other projects

Ireland, Irish Water to upgrade wastewater treatment plant

According to a recent statement by Irish Water, the company will soon commence work on a project to upgrade the Tinure Wastewater Treatment Plant in County Louth.

The €260,000 investment includes the construction of a new storm water holding tank and pumping station and the installation of new inlet screening at the wastewater treatment plant. These upgrades are intended to ensure that there is more efficient treatment at the plant; the new storm water tank will increase the capacity at the plant and reduce the risk of overflows at times of storms and heavy rainfall. The contract was awarded to EMR and work is expected to be completed in summer 2018.

"The investment will benefit the environment as the risk to overflows into the White River will be reduced" said Peter Flood, Capital Programmes Lead, East and Midlands Region. "Irish Water is committed to investing in Ireland's wastewater infrastructure to protect the environment by improving the quality of the treated discharge water from our wastewater treatment plants."

According to the company, it collects wastewater from over 1,000 separate communities connected to the wastewater network and treats around 1,600 million litres of wastewater daily before discharging it back into Irish rivers, harbours and coastal areas.

UAE, Abu Dhabi to build world's largest desalination plant

Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (ADWEA) plans to invest USD $1.2bn into the construction of the world's largest water desalination plant. The plant will be located 45km north of Abu Dhabi and operations are expected to begin in October 2021, according to state news agency WAM.

Once operational, the plant will produce 200m gallons of fresh water per day using reverse osmosis technology. The city's current production capacity stands at 16,922 megawatts and 960m gallons of freshwater per day.

"This project is in line with the leadership's vision for a comprehensive development, in which ADWEA will play a vital role by setting up water and electricity infrastructure projects across the UAE," said Abdullah Ali Musleh Al Ahbabi, chairman of ADWEA's board of directors.

ADWEA has invited developers and larger groups to submit their interest in the project, according to an independent product model applied by the authority within the privatisation programme, in partnership with the private sector. Following this programme, ADWEA will own a 60% stake in the project, while the private sector developer will own the remaining 40%.
