Upstream oil & gas

Norway, Aker Provides Umbilicals for CNOOC Liuhua Projects

Aker Solutions has announced that it will supply power umbilical systems to CNOOC's Liuhua oil fields in the South China Sea. Power umbilical systems are bundled cable and fiber optic systems that distribute power, control, and communication between subsea equipment on the seabed and platforms or floating production facilities.

The $41.5-million project will include more than 35 km (21.7 mi) of dynamic and static power umbilicals for the Liuhua 16-2, 20-2, and 21-2 fields. It will also link the subsea development to a new floating production storage and offloading unit (FPSO). Aker Solutions will employ its OsciLay process for the static section of the Liuhua 16-2 umbilical. "OsciLay allows us to manufacture extremely long or heavy power umbilicals," said vice president of the company's subsea sales in Asia Pacific, Greg Ross. "Conventional manufacturing approaches would ultimately limit us."

The company's team in Malaysia will lead the engineering program, and the umbilical production will be created in Mobile, Alabama. The consignments for Liuhua 16-2 and 20-2 should be delivered by the end of 2019 while the Liuhua 21-2 package is scheduled for 2020.

Norway, PSA sanctions Norwegian Offshore Exploration Drilling

The Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) has sanctioned programs for two exploration wells and a maintenance-related project.

Wintershall Norge has been cleared to drill well 6706/6-2 on the Marisko prospect, in the Norwegian Sea. The semisubmersible Transocean Spitsbergen is due to start drilling next month and the program will continue for 61-93 days, depending on the result. Equinor has also acquired permission to drill exploration well 35/11-22 S on the Bergand prospect in the North Sea, 63 km (39 mi) offshore Utvær in Solund municipality. Water depth at the location is 355 m (1,164 ft). The semisub Deepsea Bergen will start operations later this month and drilling could continue for 48 days, pending the result.

Finally, the PSA has also authorized Repsol Norge to use the jackup Rowan Stavanger for accommodation and well maintenance on the Yme field in the southeastern Norwegian North Sea, starting in September.

Downstream oil & gas

Irak, BHGE Wins Contract for Recovery of Flare Gas

Baker Hughes, a GE company, has been awarded a contract by the South Gas Company of Iraq (SGC) for fast-track solutions to help the recovery of flare gas from Nassiriya and Al Gharraf oilfields. The attendance of several high-level officials, including HE Jabbar Al-Luaib, the Minister of Oil of Iraq, highlighted the importance of the agreement-signing ceremony.

As per the agreement, BHGE will develop solutions for flare gas recovery at Nassiriya and Al Gharraf oilfields using advanced modular gas processing (NGL) technology, developed in the United States and Italy. The project will utilise the modular skid-mounted Gas Processing technology to build a 200 million standard ft3/d NGL plant which is expected to be completed by 2021. The project will support the development of a fully integrated natural gas liquid (NGL) plant at Nasiriya that will recover 200 million ft3/d of dry gas, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and condensate. The modular solution will support power plants with dry gas for efficient power generation, thus helping meet the growing demand for electricity using clean fuel. It will also contribute to curtailing the amount of gas flared in the fields of Nassiriya and Gharraf that otherwise goes to waste.

The advanced technology used to develop the plant will help produce more than 1000 tonnes of LPG per day and recover more than 900 cubic meters of condensates per day. This will help to meet the domestic demand for cooking gas. The surplus LPG and condensate will be exported to generate revenue for the Iraqi government. The project is aligned with the vision of the Ministry of Oil and the government as it contributes to the social and economic development of Nassiriya. H.E. Jabbar Al-Luaibi, Iraq's Minister of Oil said, that this project is important achievement for the Ministry and marks the entry of a new phase for the sector.

Rami Qasem, President, MENAT & India, BHGE, said: "As a local trusted partner to Iraq, BHGE is bringing advanced technologies and solutions that can help meet the Ministry's goals for the industry. This contract is a testament to our continued commitment to supporting the Ministry of Oil's strategic goals by deploying advanced flare gas solutions to build the country's oil and gas infrastructure. The project will create more than 500 direct and indirect jobs for Iraqis, build local capabilities and strengthen the local supply chain."

Russia, Russia Receives Permits for Nord Stream 2 Pipeline

Nord Stream 2 AG, has received a permit for the installation of an underwater pipeline in the territorial sea of the Russian Federation. Nord Steam 2 AG is developing a pipeline to supply Russian natural gas to the EU market through the Baltic Sea.

The permit has been issued by Russia's Federal Agency for the Supervision of Natural Resources Use (Rosprirodnadzor) in accordance with the established procedure. The permit covers a section of approximately 114 km in the Russian territorial sea. Practical implementation of the project, under the terms of the newly issued permit, will begin in the near future, taking into account environmental aspects. It will also stay in line with the conclusion of the State Environmental Expert Review and the Water Use License.

All the permits necessary for construction of the Russian section of the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline have now been received, as the Ministry of Construction and Utilities had previously issued a construction permit for the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline on the Russian territory. "We are glad to announce that the necessary construction permits in Russia have been granted, meaning that the Nord Stream 2 project is developing according to the planned schedule. We will further rely on collaboration with the countries involved to ensure the project is implemented in a timely and efficient manner," said Henning Kothe, Chief Project Officer at Nord Stream 2.

In addition to Russia, Germany, Finland and Sweden have granted all of the necessary permits for construction of the planned pipeline within their jurisdictions. The national permitting procedure in Denmark is ongoing.

Netherlands, The, Siemens Gamesa and Van Oord Win Wind Farm Contract

Wind turbine maker Siemens Gamesa and Dutch marine contractor Van Oord have been awarded a contract worth more than 500 million euros ($580 million) to build a large wind farm in the Netherlands.

The 380 megawatt (MW) wind farm on IJsselmeer Lake is expected to provide enough energy to power close to 380,000 households beginning in 2021. Spain's Siemens Gamesa will design and supply 89 wind turbines and service the wind farm for at least 16 years. Van Oord will deliver foundations and cables for the project, with construction set to start next year.

The Netherlands is looking to increase renewable energy production and cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 49 percent by 2030. Wind, solar, biomass and other sustainable sources should provide at least 16 percent of the country's energy requirements by 2023, up from 6.6 percent last year.
Plans also call for wind farms with a total capacity of 3500 MW in the Dutch part of the North Sea by 2023, while turbines on and near land will also be significantly increased.

Netherlands, The, CWT Solar Project in Port of Amsterdam

More than 41,000 solar panels will generate sustainable energy in the Port of Amsterdam for logistics services provider CWT. Spread across five locations, the panels will form the largest solar project in Amsterdam.

CWT is recognized for its transport and sea shipping operations. In order to carry out these activities in a sustainable manner, CWT has opted to use the roofs of its buildings to generate solar power. A combined total of 41,114 solar panels will generate more than 11,000,000 kWh of green electricity.

In order to realise maximum yields from the roof surface, it has been decided to use extra powerful 300 watt peak solar panels. Once these solar panels are in operation, they will generate enough sustainable energy to supply green electricity to 3,100 households.

CWT is working with KiesZon with respect to the development, financing, realisation and operation of the solar project. KiesZon previously applied for and was granted the SDE+ subsidy.

Saudi Arabia, Saudi Aramco & Air Products to Form Power JV

Saudi Aramco and Air Products have signed a deal to form an $8 billion gasification and power joint venture (JV) in Saudi Arabia.

The new joint venture vehicle will purchase gasification assets, power block and associated utilities from state owned Aramco and will be located in Saudi Arabia's Jazan Economic City (JEC). These assets are currently under construction and will be transferred to the JV upon successful start-up, scheduled in 2019. The focus of the JV will be to serve Saudi Aramco's Jazan Refinery and terminal at JEC. The refinery is a megaproject that will process heavy and medium crude oil to create liquefied petroleum gas, sulfur, asphalt, benzene and paraxylene, and add 400,000 barrels per day of refining capacity.

Aramco will provide the feedstock, and the joint venture will produce power, hydrogen and other utilities for Aramco. Air Products will hold at least 55 percent of the joint venture, with Aramco holding the balance. It is expected that the joint venture will operate the facility for a 25-year period at a fixed monthly fee.

Air Products Chairman, President and CEO, Seifi Ghasemi, said: "Air Products is very honoured to be given this outstanding opportunity to expand our involvement in this megaproject in partnership with Saudi Aramco, the world's largest company, and ACWA Power, the leading private power producer in the Middle East. Earlier this year, Air Products acquired the patents for the Shell liquids gasification technology, which is the core technology for the Jazan gasification facility. Building on the success of our Lu'An project in China, this new project further extends Air Products' leadership position supplying syngas to major companies around the world. We appreciate the trust that Saudi Aramco continues to place in us, first in awarding us the air separation unit, and now moving forward toward an expanded scope of supply at Jazan."

It is expected that the joint venture will increase job opportunities within the downstream sector of Saudi Arabia. It is also expected to transfer the most advanced technologies in this field to the Kingdom, enabling Saudi talent to employ this technology for the first time.

Germany, WELTEC Group Takes Over 2.2-MW Biogas Plant

Nordmethan GmbH, a company of the WELTEC BIOPOWER Group, has taken over an insolvent biogas plant in Südergellersen, Lower Saxony. The German specialist for the development and operation of biomethane and biogas plants will fully modernize the technical and operational concept of the 2.2-Megawatt plant.

The original plant had been set up in 2009 and expanded in 2014. The operator's concept was based on the digestion of horse manure and sale of the digestate as fertiliser pellets. However, as the concept turned out to be technically difficult and economically unfeasible, the plant went bankrupt. WELTEC Group, is now adjusting the plant and the technology is being modernized.

The project development work is currently under way. "Following a takeover negotiation process of about two years, we will speedily modernize the plant technology," says Jens Albartus, Director of WELTEC BIOPOWER and Nordmethan. Henceforth, the two digesters, with a capacity of 3,000 m³ each, will be fed with renewable raw materials and horse manure from local suppliers. The generated biogas will be used to run two cogeneration power plants with an electrical output of 1.1 MW each. Nordmethan will supply the power to the public power grid.

Initially, extensive upgrade and repair work will be performed to ensure profitable operation of the biogas plant: "We will install two digestate storage units and two digestate dryers. By equipping the biogas plant with modern control technology and a drive-in silo system, we will ensure flexibility for all requirements", says Jens Albartus, explaining the background of the conversion measures. In view of this general overhaul, Jens Albartus is highly optimistic about the future economic success of the 2.2-MW plant.

Thanks to its strong service department and the experience gained in building more than 300 biogas plants around the globe, the WELTEC Group is well prepared for such projects. In Südergellersen, the company's expertise will make sure that the plant operation can react in a flexible way to all future challenges.
