Upstream oil & gas

Morocco, SDX Energy announces discovery

SDX Energy Inc. has confirmed that a gas discovery has been made at its KSR-14 development well on the Sebou permit in Morocco.
The KSR-14 well was drilled to a total depth of 1830 meters and encountered 20 m of net conventional natural gas pay in the Guebbas and Hoot formations over 4 intervals. The initial results have exceeded pre-drill estimates, and work is currently underway to further evaluate the well's accurate recoverable volume estimate.
Once the drilling rig has left the location, the company expects that the well will be connected to the existing infrastructure and produced. The well is anticipated to be on production in approximately 30 days.

United States of America, Fremont Petroleum strikes oil in Florence Field

Fremont Petroleum Corp. has intersected crude oil during the drilling of the Bird #13-18 well in the Pierre formation at the company’s Pathfinder Project in Fremont County, Colorado. 
Approximately 1000 ft. of drilling is still to occur before the target depth is reached in the Sharon Springs formation.
 The Sharon Springs formation is the source rock for the oil in the Pierre formation which acts as a bottom-seal to the Pierre formation. The lower section of the Pierre formation typically is where the majority of the oil reserves are stored.
Intersecting oil in the upper section of the Pierre formation is very encouraging at this early stage of drilling and is an indication a substantial oil reservoir may be present.
This oil discovery confirmed that Fremont’s combination of applying highly-advanced geophysics (3D seismic) and geochemistry (molecular, hydrocarbon analytics of soil samples) has been successful in locating oil-filled fractures in the Pierre formation.

Russia, Gazprom’s Omsk Refinery starts production of low-sulphur marine fuel

Russian gas giant, Gazprom Neft, says that its Omsk Refinery in Western Siberia has produced its first batch of RMG-80, a marine fuel claimed to be environmentally friendly. RMG-80 is a low-viscosity residual marine grade fuel having sulphur content of less than 1000ppm which makes it ideal to be used in emission control zones like the North Sea, the Baltic Sea and the English Channel.
Gazprom says that the Omsk Refinery is looking to dispatch up to 50,000 tonnes of the marine fuel by the end of 2017. It estimates the market potential of the new marine fuel to be 158,000 tonnes per year.
Gazpromneft Marine Bunker, the marine bunkering business of Gazprom, will be handling the sales of RMG-80.
The low-sulphur marine fuels are produced by the refinery through the catalytic cracking of hydrotreated vacuum gas oil.
According to Gazprom, the formulation of RMG-80 features an additive that decreases cold-flow temperature and stops wax from settling in the fuel.

United Kingdom, Wood Group secures contract for Total's Lindsey oil refinery

France’s Total has awarded a contract to Wood Group to support the Lindsey oil refinery located in North Killinghome, Lincolnshire, UK. Under the five-year contract, Wood Group will provide onshore maintenance services. The contract, which will commence on January 1, 2018, includes the option to be extended up to two years.
The Lindsay refinery is equipped with highly advanced refining and conversion processes to process nearly ten million tons of crude a year. It has capacity to process 45 different kinds of crude.

Over the last 17 months, Cheniere Partners and Bechtel have declared substantial completion on four liquefaction trains at Sabine Pass. With the achievement of substantial completion, financial results of LNG sales from train 4 going forward will be reflected in the statement of operations of Cheniere Partners and its affiliates.

Power generation

Chile, ABB delivers solar solutions in the Atacama Desert

Spanish independent power producer, Acciona, selected ABB to deliver an all-in-one inverter solution that provides clean energy to power the data center for a global, leading tech giant.
The solar plant is situated in the harsh environment of the Atacama Desert in Chile, 645 km north of the country’s capital Santiago. One of the driest places in the world, the Atacama spans 1,000 km and experiences extreme temperatures from 40°C in the day to -5°C and below at night.
Following more than 25 years of investment and research, ABB’s solutions are designed to provide energy efficient solar power and withstand extreme weather conditions. The El Romero project included the installation of 60 ABB PVS800-IS inverter stations, each rated at 3.6 MW.
Providing high conversion efficiency with low auxiliary power consumption, the PVS800-IS inverter station is a plug-and-play solution, designed for multi-megawatt PV power plants. To allow easy and rapid connected to a medium voltage (MV) transformer station, each inverter station, which houses two to three PVS800 central inverters, also features embedded auxiliary power, monitoring and air filtration systems.

United States of America, Agribusiness giant to build $90 M biodiesel plant in Kansas

US-based global agribusiness, Cargill, has revealed its plans to come up with a USD $90 million biodiesel plant in Kansas that will be capable of producing 60 million gallons of biodiesel annually.
The biodiesel plant to be built in Wichita is expected to boost the company’s biodiesel operations in the heart of the Midwest. It is aimed to open in January 2019 to complement Cargill's existing biodiesel plants in Iowa Falls, Iowa, and Kansas City, Missouri.
The biodiesel plant will be built adjacent to the company’s oilseed processing plant. It will come in the place of an existing oil refinery operated by Cargill's Global Edible Oil division.
Cargill provides biofuels to a range of renewable resources like corn, sugar cane, soybeans, palm oil, and biogas.
The company produces biodiesel in the US, European Union (EU) and Argentina. Its ethanol production is currently carried out in the US, EU and Brazil.

Malaysia, Sabah to set up first oleochemical plant

The Malaysian state of Sabah is to set up its first oleochemical plant, which will process industrial grade palm oil (IGPO) into stearic acid and soap noodles.
The oleochemical, or fatty-acid processing, plant will be set up by Gamalux Oils at the Lahad Datu Palm Oil Industrial Cluster (POIC) within two years.
Gamalux, which already has a factory within the cluster that extracts solvents from palm oil base and IGPO, is understood to have recently purchased 1.25 ha of additional land for the proposed plant.
Lahad Datu POIC is being developed by state-owned POIC Sabah, which hopes that establishing the plant could attract further investment in oleochemical processing.
Stearic acid is anticipated to be the primary product of the plant, and soap noodles the secondary. The feedstock for the plant, IGPO, is usually recovered from slush washed out of palm oil mills, or extracted from spent bleaching earth through a solvent extraction process.

United States of America, US EPA approves cellulosic ethanol plant

According to cellulosic and biorefining technology company, Edeniq, Inc., the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved Flint Hills Resources’ registration of its 100 million gal./year plant for cellulosic ethanol production.
Iowa Falls is the fifth existing ethanol plant to receive approval from the EPA for cellulosic ethanol production using Edeniq’s Pathway technology. Edeniq’s technology is a low cost solution for producing and measuring cellulosic ethanol from corn kernel fibre using existing fermenters at corn ethanol plants, and has already proven cellulosic ethanol yields of up to 2.5% or higher, as a percentage of its customers’ total volume output. Once approved by EPA, customers are eligible to qualify cellulosic gallons with D3 RINs, which are considered the most valuable on the RIN market. Additional benefits of Edeniq’s technology include increases in corn oil production and greater overall ethanol yields, all provided by a zero-capex cellulosic ethanol production option.

China, Country’s first flare emissions test facility opens

Honeywell UOP’s Callidus Technologies business has begun operation of China's only facility that is capable of testing flare emissions for volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The test centre aids customers that are working to reduce emissions of VOCs in industrial flare systems and improve flare operation.
The Callidus Luoyang Combustion Research and Development Center is the largest test facility of its kind in Asia. Its design and testing methodology was developed by Callidus in conjunction with the US Environmental Protection Agency, resulting in a significant improvement over industrial design requirements.
Flare VOC emissions can be reduced by controlling combustion performance. The destruction and removal efficiency (DRE) of flare gas is measured as a percentage of total hydrocarbons removed or destroyed by the flare. This is one of the key factors to measuring the performance of flare VOC emissions because it represents how well the flare performs.
The test facility confirms that the DRE of Callidus flare tips exceeds 99.5%, resulting in a 75% reduction in VOC emissions and exceeding standard industrial design requirements of 98% of DRE.
