Upstream oil & gas

Gabon, Petronas makes deepwater discovery offshore West Africa

Petronas has announced that it has made a new oil and gas discovery from its Boudji-1 exploration well in Block F14 (Likuale), located in South Gabon.

The ultra-deepwater exploration well, drilled in water depths of 9186 ft (2,800 m), encountered 295 ft (90 m) of gross high quality hydrocarbon-bearing pre-salt sands.

The discovery, made by Petronas's subsidiary PC Gabon Upstream S.A. (PCGUSA), marks a significant milestone for Petronas as it expands upstream growth in West Africa, demonstrating its frontier exploration and deepwater operational capabilities.

"The discovery in Gabon is an encouraging development for Petronas, as we continue to pursue growth activities beyond Malaysia, in line with the strategy to expand our core oil and gas business by growing our resource base," Datuk Mohd Anuar Taib, Petronas' executive vice president & upstream CEO, said.

"Aside from boosting Gabon's oil and gas industry, this discovery will also spur further growth activities in the region, and complements our achievements towards building a significant deepwater portfolio globally," he added.

Petronas, together with the Ministry of Petroleum & Hydrocarbons in Gabon, will conduct an assessment to further determine the commerciality of the resource volume.
PCGUSA is the operator for Block F14 (Likuale), with Australia's Woodside holding a 30% participating interest.

Saudi Arabia, Saudi Aramco signs preliminary gas deal with Shell

State oil giant Saudi Aramco has signed a preliminary deal to pursue international gas opportunities with Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) as part of top crude exporter Saudi Arabia's diversification drive before the listing of Aramco.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed in London between the two companies was during the official visit of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Britain, and would include gas upstream and liquefaction projects.

"It is a discussion that began some time ago and now we have signed a memorandum to work on gas projects from upstream to downstream across the world and in Saudi Arabia. Concrete projects would be announced in due course," said Shell Chief Executive Ben van Beurden.

Last year, Saudi Arabia and international oil companies had discussed gas venture opportunities inside the kingdom and abroad. Aramco is gearing up for a share listing later this year, aiming to get a valuation of up to $2 trillion in what could be the world's biggest initial public offering (IPO).

The kingdom has a long-term goal of increasing the use of gas for domestic power generation, thus reducing oil burning at home and freeing up more crude for export. Expanding its gas portfolio inside the kingdom as well as abroad could help increase Aramco's valuation as it generates more revenue from exports than selling oil at lower domestic prices.

Downstream oil & gas

United Arab Emirates, ADNOC announces strategic move downstream

The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has announced its intention to move further downstream, as the company pivots to take full advantage of the rising demand for higher value refined and petrochemical products, particularly in the growth economies of China and Asia.

Speaking at CERAWeek, a leading gathering of the energy industry, H.E. Dr Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of State and ADNOC Group CEO, set out ADNOC's strategic ambitions to become a major global downstream player, with the operational flexibility to respond quickly to shifting and emerging market needs. At the center of its new downstream strategy, ADNOC intends to create the world's largest integrated refining and chemical site in the world, in Ruwais, UAE, where it will triple petrochemicals' production to 14.4 million tonnes, annually, by 2025.

H.E. Dr. Al Jaber announced plans to host a Downstream Investment Forum, in Abu Dhabi, on May 13–14, where ADNOC will unveil significant co-investment opportunities to strengthen and grow its downstream portfolio.

"We will unveil significant co-investment opportunities for all partners, ready to work alongside us at a special event this coming May, as we transform our Downstream portfolio domestically and internationally," H.E. Dr. Al Jaber said.

United States of America, ExxonMobil outlines aggressive growth plans

ExxonMobil outlined an aggressive growth strategy to more than double earnings and cash flow from operations by 2025 at today's oil prices.

"We've got the best portfolio of high-quality, high-return investment opportunities that we've seen in two decades," Darren W. Woods, chairman and chief executive officer, announced recently at the company's annual meeting of investment analysts at the New York Stock Exchange.

In the upstream, the company expects to significantly increase earnings through a number of growth initiatives involving low-cost-of-supply investments in U.S. tight oil, deepwater and liquefied natural gas (LNG). Growth coming online from new and existing projects is expected to increase production from 4 million oil-equivalent barrels per day to about 5 million.

Key drivers of growth are in Guyana, where exploration success has added 3.2 billion gross oil equivalent barrels of recoverable resource and plans are in place for development and further exploration, and in the Permian, where the company has increased the size of its resource to 9.5 billion oil-equivalent barrels from less than 3 billion in the past year.

Expansion is supported by projected demand growth in emerging markets, and includes entries into new markets such as Mexico and Indonesia. It is supported by integration with chemical manufacturing and upstream production.

Power generation

Dominican Republic, Emerald Solar Energy begins work on 25MW PV project

Emerald Solar Energy — a joint company established by Canada's Potentia Renewables and the Dominican Republic's Cisneros — has commenced work on a 25 megawatt (MW) Photovoltaic (PV) project in Barahona, located in the Dominican Republic.

The renewable-energy project, which will feature an initial investment of about USD $40 million, is expected to be completed within a year. Once operational, the installation will generate enough energy on a yearly basis to supply 10,000 households with electricity.

The project is part of the Support Plan for Renewable Energy Projects, promoted by the Dominican government and the Dominican Corporation of State Electric Companies, CDEEE.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the site was held in the Dominican Republic and was attended by the President of the Dominican Republic, Danilo Medina — along with Rubén Bichara, vice president of the CDEEE; Ernesto Villalta, vice minister of Energy and Mines and Angel Canó, executive director of the National Energy Commission.

Fernando Joffre, director of business development of Potentia Renewables, said: "The signs of economic and social stability, as well as the level of legal security, invited us to arrive and want to grow together with Dominican society in the long term."

Peru, Flesan Energía wins power generation contract

Okra Energy has awarded the power generation contract for Peru's first small-scale natural gas liquefaction (ssLNG) facility to Flesan Energía SAC, independent power production (IPP) specialists in end user gas power generation solutions.

ssLNG facilities enable flexible and scalable energy delivery to areas without gas pipeline infrastructure. Okra Energy – through its Peruvian subsidiary Lantera Energy SAC – is finalising construction of its benchmark facility in Piura, located in northern Peru. The LNG plant is due to be operational by July 1.

Under this long-term power purchase agreement (PPA), Flesan Energía, headquartered in Lima, is providing the installation and operation of gensets with the combined capacity of 2.8MW for Okra Energy's LNG site in Colan, providing secure and reliable power to this first-to-market, high efficiency natural gas solution for remote areas.

According to Okra Energy's CEO Louis Ravenet, Flesan was chosen from among more than 30 contenders throughout Chile, Peru and the United states. "By selecting Flesan Energía, we're able to provide a higher level of energy security to our clients due to Flesan's 24x7 supervision, maintenance and servicing of this critical component of an LNG facility."

United States of America, Nevada geothermal power plant begins operation

A new 4.4 MW geothermal power plant has started operation in Wabuska, Nevada. Developed by Open Mountain Energy, the plant was built by Chinese supplier Zhejiang Kaishan Compressor Co.

Zhejiang Kaishan Compressor Co., provider of air compressors, that announced the company has successively connected two geothermal power plants ot the grid recently, indicating that the plant has started operation.

The company recently received on-site reports on the progress of both projects, namely, the Wabuska geothermal power plant in Nevada, the U.S., and the Turawell geothermal power station in Hungary. Both projects have started operations and generate power in good condition, according to the Quzhou-based manufacturer in a recent statement.

Both units in Wabuska geothermal power station project have been operating steadily for nearly two weeks, generating a total of 4.4 MW power, it added. Following a three-month trial period, the power generation capacity can be increased by about 20 percent.

With its technology, Kaishan plans to bring a new development model to the global geothermal industry with small units that are faster to build and install.

China, Yokogawa wins refinery and petrochemical order

Yokogawa China Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corp., has won an order to supply the gas chromatographs (GCs) for the first phase of a project to construct an integrated refinery and petrochemical production complex that is being undertaken by Zhejiang Petrochemical Co., Ltd. at a new industrial site in the Zhoushan archipelago.

Zhejiang Petrochemical is mainly engaged in crude oil import and export, oil refining, petrochemical production, and the sales, storage, and transportation of its products. The company's new, large-scale integrated refining and petrochemical complex will eventually have an overall refining capacity of 40 million tpy. The facilities that are being built include a crude oil terminal, oil refining and petrochemical production process units, storage tanks, and transport and service installations.

The units constructed in the first phase will have the capacity to refine 20 million tpy of crude oil and produce 1.4 million tpy of ethylene. The first phase of this project is expected to be completed and put into production by the end of December 2018.

For the first phase of this project, Yokogawa China will supply 190 Yokogawa GC8000 process GCs. This is Yokogawa's largest order of GC8000 GCs to date.

Egypt, Country to expand petrochemical projects

Egypt will see an expansion in petrochemicals projects over the coming period, Petroleum Minister Tarek el-Molla said recently in a statement.

He continued to say that the petrochemicals industry allows Egypt to fully utilize its gas and petrol resources and contributes positively to Egypt's economy, and that Egypt has the necessary potentials to expand its production of petrochemicals on which many industries are based.

Molla was speaking at the meeting of the general assembly of the Egyptian Linear Alkyl Benzene Company (ELAB) to approve the company's 2017 activities.

Molla said that industrial safety and environment protection are on the top of the ministry's priorities and stressed the importance of increasing the role of the petroleum sector in societal participation by developing areas surrounding petroleum projects.

This comes as part of the ministry's plan to expand and develop refineries to boost domestic production of petroleum products, with the aim of filling the gap between production and consumption.

Developing the petrochemical industry will result in an improvement in plastics industry, fibers industry and other related industries.

By 2020, Egypt plans to produce more than three million tons of chemical products, under a 20-year national plan, which involves a range of products from ethylene and polyethylene to olefins and aromatics.

Other projects

Canada, Powell River council approves wastewater treatment plant

The City of Powell River, British Columbia, has approved a consolidated wastewater treatment plant that will bring the city into compliance with federal and provincial environmental regulations.

Staff will move forward with a final plan—including the location and technological process for the new wastewater treatment plant— to submit for federal and provincial infrastructure grants in the spring.

Action to get pre-design of the plant, choose the treatment process and confirm the location was ramped up in December 2017 to meet critical funding deadlines and any further delays would have jeopardized the opportunities. The project will be the largest infrastructure project in the city's history, estimated to cost more than $30 million.

"I have a high degree of confidence that we're doing all of the proper due diligence and it's going to be a responsibly built and operated plant," said liquid-waste management steering committee chair and city councillor Karen Skadsheim, "and we have looked at all of the options and settled on one that is going to fit well for these outcomes."

The city must be in compliance with environment regulations, but extensions on that timeline might be necessary as the project could take five years to complete. When finished, the project will convey sewage from Tla'amin Nation, Wildwood, Townsite, Cranberry and Westview to one treatment facility near the existing plant in Townsite, where a high-efficiency biological treatment process will convert it to wastewater, and through an outfall into the Georgia Strait.

United Arab Emirates, Dewa awards $237m SWRO desalination contract

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has awarded a contract worth Dh871 million (USD $237 million) to a joint venture between Acciona Agua and Belhasa Six Construct (Besix) for the construction of a seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO)-based desalination plant at Jebel Ali.

The plant is being developed as a brownfield seawater desalination plant and associated facilities, with the selected desalination technology being SWRO, two pass reverse osmosis (RO), including pre-treatment facilities.

The 40-million gallons per day (mgpd) plant is expected to be commissioned by May 2020 to meet the reserve margin criterion set for peak water demand for the year 2020 and beyond.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, the managing director and chief executive of Dewa, said: "In line with Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, which aims to reduce Dubai's carbon footprint to be the smallest in the world by 2050, we work to increase the efficiency of the water production plants through promoting PV panels and other solar technologies."

"To ensure this, we need to connect multi-stage flash distillation, MSF, based plants to a centralised solar energy source such as the MBR Solar Park, so our strategy is to build production plants based on RO, which requires 90 per cent less energy than that of MSF, making it a more sustainable choice for water desalination," he noted.

The project is also aimed at establishing Dubai's leading position in the region, as an example of an effective and efficient infrastructure for electricity and water networks, to meet current and future requirements for all aspects of development in the emirate.
