Upstream oil & gas

Egypt, Shell, Eni, Exxon Win Concessions in Egypt

Royal Dutch Shell, Eni, BP and Exxon Mobil have announced that they have were among a number of winners of Egypt's international tender for oil and gas exploration. A total of 12 concessions were awarded.

For Exxon Mobil's, the project marks the company's entry into gas exploration in Egypt. Shell was awarded the most concessions in the tender - three for oil and two for gas. Together Neptune Energy, Merlon, Shell, Eni and state-controlled Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) were awarded seven oil exploration concessions in which 39 wells will be drilled. Egypt has in recent years reached maritime demarcation agreements with several countries in the region in a push towards increased oil and gas exploration.

Egypt expects investments of at least $750 million to $800 million in the first stage of exploration in the 12 concessions. EGPC's tender included areas in the Western Desert, the Nile Valley, the Gulf of Suez and the Eastern Desert. Five gas exploration concessions were also awarded - in which 20 wells will be drilled - to Shell, Exxon, Petronas, BP, DEA and Eni.

Eni's discovery of the giant gas field Zohr in 2015, the largest in the Mediterranean and estimated to hold about 30 trillion cubic feet of gas, has raised interest in gas exploration in Egypt. The Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Corporation's bid round, which was the largest in its history, included border areas in the Mediterranean Sea as well as land areas in the Nile Delta.

Mexico, GoM Project Receives Additional Funding

BHP Group, the world's largest miner, has approved $696 million in funding to expand production at the BP PLC-led Atlantis oil project in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

The decision comes roughly a month after London-listed oil and gas major BP discovered further oil prospects in the Gulf of Mexico, including additional oil in the Atlantis field. BP said the total cost of developing the project will be around $1.3 billion.

BP has a 56 % interest in the Atlantis field, while BHP holds the remaining 44 %. First production for the project is expected in 2020 and is expected to increase production by about 38,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day at its peak.

BHP said it has also approved $256 million in funding for additional drilling and study at its 60 percent-held Trion field in Mexico. The Mexican government-owned PEMEX holds the rest of Trion. BHP's Australian shares ended 0.6 percent lower, while the benchmark fell about 0.3 percent.

Mexico, Rowan Companies plc Awarded Well Contract

Rowan Companies plc has announced that the Rowan Renaissance, an R-Class ultra-deepwater drillship, has been awarded a one-well contract in Mexico by PC Carigali Mexico Operations, S.A. de C.V. ('Petronas') for an estimated duration of 80 days. The project is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2019.

Following the initial contract term, Petronas has a one-well priced option with an estimated duration of 80 days. The Rowan Renaissance is currently under contract with Total in Mexico's Gulf of Mexico until March 2019.

Downstream oil & gas

Romania, Midia Gas Development Project Approved

Black Sea Oil & Gas SRL ('BSOG') together with its co-venture partners, Petro Ventures Resources SRL ('Petro Ventures') and Gas Plus International B.V. ('Gas Plus') have announced that they have approved the Final Investment Decision ('FID'), to proceed with the US$400 million Midia Gas Development Project ('MGD Project'), offshore Black Sea.

The MGD Project, which is the 1st new offshore gas development project in the Romanian Black Sea to be built after 1989, consists of 5 offshore production wells (1 subsea well at Doina field and 4 platform wells at Ana field) and a subsea gas production system over the Doina well which will be connected through an 18 km pipeline with a new unmanned production platform located over Ana field. A 126 km gas pipeline will link the Ana platform to the shore and to a new onshore gas treatment plant ('GTP') in Corbu commune, Constanta county. The treatment plant has a capacity of 1 BCM per year representing 10% of Romania's consumption. The processed gas will be delivered into the NTS at the gas metering station to be found within the GTP.

BSOG has secured a long-term gas sales agreement with a Romanian subsidiary of ENGIE. The contracted volumes refer to all MGD Project gas production, reduced by the volumes that the producers are currently obliged to sell on the centralised market. BSOG has also secured a gas transmission contract with Transgaz S.A. ('Transgaz') for the transport of the MGD Project production into the National Transmission System ('NTS') for a contractual period of 15 years.

The entire project infrastructure, including all offshore and onshore facilities, has been contracted to be built, installed and commissioned under an EPCIC Contract with GSP Offshore SRL, with a contracted delivery date Q1 2021. The development drilling of the five production wells will also be performed by GSP for which GSP Uranus jack-up rig will deployed. BSOG is pleased to confirm that all the contracting activities for this project will, in total, have 70% Romanian content.

In 2019, BSOG anticipates having completed the detailed engineering for the MGD Project, commenced the fabrication of the Ana Wellhead Platform at the shipyard in Agigea, commenced the civil constructions at the GTP site in Corbu and have purchased a number of long lead company items.
