Project News

Upstream oil & gas

United States of America, Apache announces an oil discovery at Maka Central-1

Apache Corporation recently announced a significant oil discovery at the Maka Central-1 well drilled offshore Suriname on Block 58. The well was drilled using the drillship Noble Sam Croft with Apache as operator holding a 50% working interest and Total holding a 50% working interest.

Maka Central-1 successfully tested for the presence of hydrocarbons in multiple stacked targets in the upper Cretaceous-aged Campanian and Santonian intervals and encountered both oil and gas condensate. The formation evaluation program included logging-while-drilling and wireline logs, formation pressures, and preliminary core and fluid analysis. Together with future appraisal wells, this data will be used to quantify the resource in the Campanian and Santonian formations.

The Maka Central-1 also targeted a third interval, the Turonian, a geologic analogue to oil discoveries offshore West Africa.

The Sam Croft will drill the next wells in Block 58, starting with the Sapakara West prospect. Sapakara West-1, located approximately 20 kilometers (12 miles) southeast of the Maka Central discovery, will test oil-prone upper Cretaceous targets in the Campanian and Santonian intervals.

United States of America, Maersk secures a contract for Maersk Valiant

Maersk Drilling has been awarded a contract for the 7th generation drillship Maersk Valiant which will be employed by Noble Energy for a one-well campaign offshore Colombia. The contract is expected to commence in Q3 2020. The contract has an estimated duration of 65 days and a contract value of USD 18.2M, including mobilization and demobilization fees.

The Maersk Valiant is a high-specification 7th generation drillship with integrated MPD capability which was delivered in 2013. It is currently mobilizing for a drilling campaign offshore Mexico.

Downstream oil & gas

Algeria, SONATRACH signs a contract in Algiers

The national oil company SONATRACH signed a contract in Algiers recently with a consortium made up of Tecnicas Reunidas (Spain) and Samsung Engineering (South Korea) for the construction of a crude oil refinery in Hassi Messaoud.

This new refinery essentially aims to strengthen the national production of fuels and lubricants to meet internal demand in the medium and long term and generate export volumes.

Located at Haoud El Hamra (30 km from Hassi Messaoud, Ouargla wilaya), this project involves the construction of a deep conversion crude oil refinery with an overall capacity of 5 million tons/year.

The new refinery will produce seven main products with European "Euro V" specifications: propane (127,000 tons/year), butane (180,000 tons/year), NO 95 gasoline (352,000 tons/year), NO 91 gasoline (1,373,000 tons/year), kerosene (228,000 tons/year), diesel (2,659,000 tons/year) and bitumen (134,000 tons/year).

Worth 440,078,294,015 dinars (about USD 3.7bn), the refinery project will include the construction of Process units, the storage area for charges and products, the torch zone, utilities and off-site and effluent treatment units.

The project will be received in March 2024.

Nigeria, Nigeria gives 35% of O&G pipeline additions by 2023

Nigeria is expected to contribute around 35% of Africa's total planned and announced oil and gas new-build trunk/transmission pipeline length additions between 2019 and 2023, says GlobalData.

The company's latest report, 'Global Planned Oil and Gas Pipelines Industry Outlook to 2023 – Capacity and Capital Expenditure Outlook with Details of All Planned Pipelines', reveals that Nigeria is expected to provide 6,601.5km of a new-build pipeline by 2023. Most of the additions will constitute natural gas, at 6,460km, while crude oil pipelines will account for 142km.

Niger has the second highest new-build pipeline additions in Africa with two new-build pipelines, Niger–Benin and Zinder–Torodi pipelines are expected to start operations with lengths of 1,980km and 1,070km, respectively by 2023. Niger–Benin is a crude oil pipeline, while Zinder–Torodi is a petroleum products pipeline.

Power generation

United States of America, Dominion selects Siemens Gamesa as the optimal supplier

Dominion Energy reached another significant milestone in the development of the offshore wind power project recently with the selection of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy as the project's preferred turbine supplier. Once completed, the offshore wind project located 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach will produce enough zero-carbon electricity to power 650,000 Virginia homes at rated wind speed.

As part of the preferred supplier agreement, Siemens Gamesa will supply the latest state-of-the-art turbines from its proven Offshore Direct Drive platform. The agreement will support the submission of the project's Construction and Operations Plan (COP) to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) in late 2020. In addition, Siemens Gamesa and Dominion Energy will work together to evaluate offshore wind supply chain development opportunities in Virginia as part of an effort to reduce project costs for the benefit of customers.

The two six-megawatt turbines manufactured by Siemens Gamesa will be installed this spring and are on schedule to come online later this year. Dominion Energy will leverage key learnings from the permitting, design and development of that project.

United States of America, Duke Energy's Mesteño project begins producing energy

Duke Energy Renewables, a commercial business unit of Duke Energy (DUK), announced that its 200-megawatt (MW) Mesteño Windpower project in Starr County, Texas began commercial operation in December 2019. It is Duke Energy's fourth wind generation facility in Starr County and its eleventh in Texas.

Mesteño contains turbines 590.5 feet tall. The tall tower turbines harness stronger winds, which result in an increase in wind energy production.

During peak construction, the wind project created approximately 200 jobs. It will also deliver more than USD 16M in tax revenue over the first 10 years of its operation.

The 200-MW Mesteño wind facility will produce enough energy to power about 60,000 average homes.

Amshore US Wind provided development support for the project, and Wanzek Construction is the contractor.

Duke Energy is on track to own or purchase 8,000 megawatts of wind, solar and biomass energy by the end of 2020.

United States of America, Pattern Energy starts repowering of Gulf Wind facility

Pattern Energy Group Inc recently announced that it has closed financing and started construction on the repowering of its Gulf Wind facility located in Kenedy County, Texas. Repowering the Gulf Wind facility will consist of removing the current wind turbines and replacing them with 118 new Siemens Gamesa SWT-2.3-108 turbines, which will generate 271 MW of capacity, the equivalent to the annual energy usage of approximately 80,000 Texas homes. Construction began in December 2019.

The repowering consists of replacing nacelles, towers, and blades for the 118 turbines at Gulf Wind with new Siemens Gamesa 2.3 MW turbines, each with 108-meter blades on 80-meter towers.

Gulf Wind is strategically located on the Gulf Coast in Kenedy County, Texas, where favorable wind conditions allow the facility to maximize energy production during times of peak demand and peak pricing.
