Upstream oil & gas

Guyana, Exxon Mobil commences drilling offshore Guyana projects

Exxon Mobil Corp. has announced that it has started development drilling in three offshore Guyana projects, which could produce more than 500,000 barrels per day (bbl/d) of oil.

The Irving, Texas-based company said it expects to start producing oil from these developments in 2020.

The projects, known as Liza Phase 1, include the conversion of an oil tanker into an FPSO vessel, which would have a production capacity of 120,000 bbl/d of oil. A second FPSO with a capacity of 220,000 bbl/d is being planned and a third is under consideration, according to company officials.

In March, the company reported that its projects in Guyana and the Permian Basin region of Texas and New Mexico, as well as refining and chemical plant expansions, are expected to drive earnings gains.

Marocco, Chariot outlines next-phase exploration goals

Chariot Oil & Gas plans to seek partners to co-fund exploration drilling on the Mohammedia and Kenitra permits offshore Morocco. In both cases the company has a 75% operated interest, with state oil company ONHYM assigned 25% (carried).

Mohammedia is inboard of Rabat Deep, where the company partnered Eni in a recent unsuccessful exploration well, and spans water depths of less than 500 m (1,640 ft). Kenitra, adjacent to Mohammedia, is in water depths of 200-1,500 m (656-4,921 ft).

Previous analysis of 3D data acquired in 2014 highlighted the LKP group of prospects in the shallower Lower Cretaceous clastic play, with the potential 350-MMbbl LKP-1a identified as a priority drilling target.

Another is the 464-MMbbl Kenitra-1 prospect, currently interpreted as an attribute-supported combination stratigraphic and fault-closed structural trap in the Lower Cretaceous marine sequence.

Preparations for drilling are already under way, with environment impact assessment preparation, preliminary geohazards and pore pressure analysis, and conceptual well engineering. Depending on the outcome of the partnering process, back-to-back wells could be drilled on the two main prospects.

Norway, Parliament approves Arctic Johan Castberg oil project

Norway's parliament has approved state-controlled Equinor's ground-breaking Johan Castberg project in Arctic waters of the Barents Sea, which is due on stream in 2022. Following a vote, final approval of the plan for development and operation, set to cost NOK 49 billion ($6.1 billion), by the ministry of petroleum and energy is seen as a formality.

Equinor, previously named Statoil, has vowed to press ahead with further exploration in the Barents Sea this year after a surge of interest early in the decade met with less success than expected. It estimates the recoverable resources from Johan Castberg at 450 million-650 million barrels of oil equivalent, with production expected to last 30 years.

Equinor recently underlined its confidence in the project, which it had scaled down, postponing plans to build a new pipeline to shore and an oil terminal. Crude from Johan Castberg will instead be shipped directly to market from a Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessel.

"It was a long road for Johan Castberg after the first discovery in 2011. Today we have a solid project that will be central in the further development of the northern regions," Equinor executive vice president for technology, projects and drilling Margareth Ovrum said in a statement.

With 30 wells distributed across 10 sub-sea templates and two satellite structures, "this is currently the largest subsea field under development globally," Equinor said. It also reiterated that the project would break even at $35 oil prices, and said it was considering possible coastal oil loading facilities, including both a "downscaled terminal solution and ship-to-ship transfer."

Downstream oil & gas

Mozambique, Tokyo Gas and Centrica sign HoA to jointly purchase LNG

Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd. and Centrica LNG Co. Ltd, a subsidiary of the UK-based energy and services company Centrica plc have announced that they have jointly signed a non-binding Heads of Agreement (HoA) with the jointly-owned sales entity of the Mozambique Area 1 joint venture partners for the long-term offtake of LNG.

Tokyo Gas and Centrica have agreed to jointly purchase 2.6 million tpy, delivered ex-ship from the Mozambique LNG Project from the start-up of production until the early 2040s. The supply agreement provides the project with key foundation customers which will facilitate the final investment decision by the Mozambique Area 1 joint venture partners.

Tokyo Gas and Centrica signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in November 2016 to collaborate in their LNG activities. This co-purchase agreement is a significant step towards the goal set out in this MOU and further deepens the relationship between the two companies.

The transaction represents the first long-term offtake agreement from Africa for both Tokyo Gas and Centrica in line with ongoing efforts to further diversify their respective portfolios of LNG sources. This will also enhance the liquidity and further develop the LNG market.

Iain Conn, Centrica's Group Chief Executive said: "As like-minded leading natural gas suppliers in our respective home countries, we are delighted to strengthen our strategic partnership with Tokyo Gas and expand our flexible LNG portfolio through this agreement with Mozambique LNG. Centrica has established strong LNG capabilities over the past few years and this agreement signed today demonstrates further progress in this growth area of our business."

United States of America, Tube Tech International establish base in Houston

In response to overwhelming demand to save heavily fouled heat transfer assets across U.S. Gulf Coast refinery operations, UK-founded industrial cleaning company Tube Tech International is launching a dedicated local base in Houston, Texas.

The move, set to serve a client base who lose millions of dollars on lengthy and preventable shutdowns, will see Tube Tech develop strategic local relationships with operators in the region and extend its scheduled cleaning provision, alongside its portfolio of critical cleaning services.

Christian Chanel, Vice President of Tube Tech Inc., will be leading the operations in Houston. He said: "It has got to a point where the industry must evolve to tackle the downturn in oil prices – unnecessary shutdown is just not an option. Where clients may have been reluctant to try alternative solutions before, they are now forced to explore more efficient options and the results speak for themselves. We have worked in the US for a while and the response to our technology and the immediate ROI it delivers has been overwhelming."

The launch of Tube Tech's US base also comes with the announcement of the company's new partnership with Jetstream of Houston LLP, an alliance the company hopes will ensure access to North America's leading pump equipment range.

India, Essel Infraprojects wins three waste-to-energy projects

Essel Infraprojects Ltd (EIL), an enterprise of Subhash Chandra led Essel Group, has announced that it has won three waste-to-energy projects in Kadapa, Anantpur and TP Gudem of Andhra Pradesh, India.

Each of the plants comprises of one R-Grate type waste combustor and flue gas treatment systems with a processing capacity of 330 tonnes per day and a power output of approximately 6000 kW.

EIL has awarded the contract to Hitachi Zosen India Private Limited for delivery of the projects. EIL and Hitachi Zosen India had earlier worked together in delivering the waste to energy plant in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, according to the statement.

"It is expected that total capacity of four WTE plants will reach 0.57 million tons per year by 2019," the company said in a statement.

United States of America, Connecticut selects 250 MW of renewable energy projects

Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) Commissioner Robert Klee announced that the state has selected more than 250 megawatts (MW) of clean, renewable energy projects through The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP)'s recent Clean Energy Request for Proposals.

The selected projects include Connecticut's first procurement of offshore wind, an anaerobic digestion facility, and multiple fuel cell projects.

The offshore wind project, the Revolution Wind Project, will provide approximately 200 MW. Four fuel cell projects will provide approximately 52 MW. Anaerobic Digestion Southington will provide about 1.6 MW. Combined with neighboring states, the offshore wind purchase totals 1,400 MW, including the 200 MW by Connecticut, 800MW by Massachusetts and 400MW by Rhode Island.

The selected projects will now begin negotiations with the electric distribution utilities, Eversource and United Illuminating, to reach agreements on 20-year contracts. Successful contracts will be subject to final approval by Connecticut's Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA).

China, AkzoNobel opens its largest powder coatings plant

Production is set to start at AkzoNobel's new powder coatings plant in Changzhou, China. According to the company, it is one of the largest of its kind in the world. Located at an existing site and the result of a nearly €40 million (USD $46 million) investment, the Changzhou plant will supply Interpon and Resicoat products to meet growing demand for more sustainable coatings from the automotive, architectural and general industrial sectors.

AkzoNobel supplies powder coatings to more than 30,000 customers worldwide, covering several market segments. The Changzhou facility will produce almost the complete range, serving customers in the entire eastern region of the country with products for domestic appliances, architecture, automotive, furniture, IT, functional and general industrial applications. It will also supply automotive customers nationwide.

According to the company, the new Changzhou plant reportedly supplies only VOC and solvent-free products and uses advanced technology — such as a vacuum drum waste water recycling system — to recycle wastewater and achieve zero waste water emissions. The site's location enables it to collaborate with one of AkzoNobel's largest technology centers, based in Songjiang, Shanghai, which carries out research on formulas and solutions customized for local needs.

China, Honeywell technology chosen for Shandong facility

American multinational conglomerate Honeywell has announced that Shandong Wonfull Petrochemical Co. Ltd will use its UOP's C3 Oleflex™ propane dehydrogenation technology to produce 250 000 tpy of polymer-grade propylene at its facility in the Huantai Economic Development Zone in Shandong Province, China.

Honeywell will provide licensing, the process design package, proprietary and non-proprietary equipment, on-site operator training, technical services for startup and continuing operation, and catalysts and adsorbents for the project.

"The tremendous growth in propylene production in China is being driven by surging demand for polypropylene and other propylene derivatives that are used to make resins, fibres and plastics," said John Gugel, President of Honeywell UOP. "The Oleflex process converts propane into high-quality propylene that meets the strict purity requirements for these products."

The C3 Oleflex technology uses catalytic dehydrogenation to convert propane to propylene and is designed to have a lower cash cost of production and higher return on investment among competing technologies. Its low energy consumption, low emissions and recyclable, platinum-alumina-based catalyst system minimises its impact on the environment. Honeywell UOP also licenses C4 Oleflex technology, which converts butanes to butylenes, the primary ingredient for making high-octane fuel additives and synthetic rubber.

Shandong Wonfull Petrochemical Group Co., Ltd. manufactures and distributes gasoline, diesel, liquefied gas, petroleum coke, sulfur, propylene, and other petrochemicals.

Croatia, Parliament gives go ahead for EU-backed LNG terminal

Croatia has reportedly passed a law to enable the construction of a LNG terminal, part of a European Union drive to diversify away from Russian gas imports. The terminal, which will be built on the island of Krk in the northern Adriatic Sea, will be partly funded by the EU but has been criticised by environmental groups and local councils.

The project will be built in two stages, involving a floating terminal followed by an onshore facility. The head of the company behind the project, LNG Hrvatska, recently said the cost of the floating terminal had been cut by €90 million (USD $105 million) to €250 million and its capacity scaled down to ensure its profitability.

The terminal would supply gas to countries in eastern and central Europe, regions heavily dependent on Russian gas. LNG Croatia is currently running a tender for delivery of a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) for the terminal. An FSRU is a special type of ship whereby LNG brought in by tanker is converted back to gas to feed into the grid.
