United States of America, Ørsted Acquires Deepwater Wind

Offshore wind leader Ørsted, has announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire 100% of Rhode Island-based Deepwater Wind at a purchase price of US $510 million. Deepwater wind built the first U.S. offshore wind farm — the 30-MW Block Island Wind — and is currently constructing two additional facilities off Long Island, New York (South Fork at 90 MW) and Connecticut (Revolution Wind at 600 MW).

With the purchase of Deepwater, Ørsted now owns the rights to continue construction of both of the above mentioned facilities as well as several others along the east coast of the United States. According to a press release, Deepwater Wind's portfolio has a total potential capacity of approx. 3.3GW.

Recently, Ørsted announced that it would be constructing two 6-MW wind turbine positions for phase one of Dominion Energy's Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project. Ørsted has exclusive rights with Dominion Energy to discuss the potential development of up to 2GW of offshore wind capacity.

With the combined organization and asset portfolio, Ørsted will be able to deliver clean energy to the seven states on the US East Coast that have already committed to build more than 10GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030.

The name of the new organization will be Ørsted US Offshore Wind. The transaction is subject to clearance by the U.S. competition authorities and is expected to close by end of 2018.

Algeria, Total and Sonatrach form Joint Venture

Total S.A. and Sonatrach have signed a shareholder agreement to create a joint venture known as STEP (Sonatrach Total Entreprise Polymères).

STEP will be responsible for carrying out a joint petrochemical project in Arzew, western Algeria. The project includes a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit and a polypropylene production unit with an output capacity of 550,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr).

The two partners (Sonatrach 51%, Total 49%) are planning to start the front-end engineering and design (FEED) in November. This project will valorize the propane, produced in large quantities locally, by transforming it into polypropylene, a plastic for which demand is growing. The partners previously announced that they were executing engineering studies related to a joint petrochemicals project.

Saudi Arabia, Saudi Aramco and Total to Build a Petrochemical Complex

Amin H. Nasser, president and CEO of Saudi Aramco and Patrick Pouyanné, chairman and CEO of Total S.A., have signed a joint development agreement for the front-end engineering and design (FEED) of a giant petrochemical complex in Jubail, on Saudi Arabia's eastern coast.

The world-class complex will be located next to the Satorp refinery, operated by Saudi Aramco (62.5%) and Total (37.5%), in order to fully exploit operational synergies. It will comprise of a mixed-feed cracker (50% ethane and refinery off-gases) – the first in the Gulf region to be integrated with a refinery – with a capacity of 1.5 million tons per year of ethylene and related high-added-value petrochemical units. The project represents an investment of roughly $5 billion and is scheduled to start in 2024.

The project will provide feedstock to other petrochemical and specialty chemical plants located in the Jubail industrial area and beyond. It represents an additional $4 billion investment by third party investors to the Saudi economy.

Overall, the complex will represent an investment of approximately $9 billion and is expected to create 8,000 local direct and indirect jobs.

Saudi Aramco CEO Amin H. Nasser said: "Satorp's second-phase expansion represents a quantum leap in Saudi Aramco's downstream strategy to maximize our hydrocarbon resources and help position the Kingdom as a chemicals manufacturing hub, thus supporting economic diversification. Today's signing will deliver on multiple levels, from high-value fuels and petrochemical products for consumers on three continents to meaningful job creation and local content development. We're pleased to celebrate with Total this latest milestone in the Satorp journey.

China, SUEZ Strengthens with Two New Contracts

SUEZ NWS has signed, through its joint venture Jiangsu Sino French Water, a concession contract to build the wastewater treatment plant and operate, for a duration of 30-year, the plant and the sewer network in Chengdong area, Changshu. The contract is worth a total of c. €413 million.

SUEZ NWS has also won the operation and maintenance contract for the waste treatment plant in the Jianghe Tianrong area. These contracts strengthen the presence of SUEZ NWS in Changshu, where the Group has been active since 2006 in the supply of drinking water and the treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater.

Jiangsu Sino French Water will be responsible for the investment, design, construction, operation and maintenance of the wastewater treatment plant of Chengdong district. It will also be in charge of the operation and maintenance of the sewage network and pump stations.

Phase I of the construction of the plant will start this year and should be operational by 2021 with a capacity of 60,000 m3/day. A second phase will double the capacity of the plant to reach 120,000 m3/day by 2023. This contract is in line with the local government's ambition to increase the wastewater treatment capacities and improve sanitation services in Changshu.

Lu Jijun, Vice Mayor of Changshu, said, "Changshu's partnership with SUEZ NWS in water development has generated significant social and economic impact. In addition to the water supply and wastewater treatment activities, the two partners have further expanded their partnership in waste management. I believe that with a shared commitment to the environment, we will be able to speed up the adoption of an integrated water supply and drainage solution in Changshu, which will provide strong support for a livable city and economic growth."
