Upstream oil & gas

Mexico, PRUL makes oil discovery in the US Gulf of Mexico

PETRONAS' subsidiary, Progress Resources USA Ltd. (PRUL) together with its partners, announced an oil discovery in the Monument exploration well, offshore United States (US) Gulf of Mexico.

The discovery marks a significant milestone for PETRONAS in strengthening and developing PETRONAS' ventures in the Americas, as it diversifies and expands its oil and gas business portfolio in the US and offshore US Gulf of Mexico.

The ultra-deepwater Monument exploration well was drilled to a total depth of 10,164 meters and encountered approximately 60 meters of net oil-bearing sands in the Lower Wilcox of Paleogene sandstone.

The Monument exploration well is located in the central US Gulf of Mexico. It is operated by Equinor Gulf of Mexico LLC with a 50% working interest while PRUL holds 30% and Repsol E&P USA Inc. holds the remaining 20%.The Monument exploration well is located in the central US Gulf of Mexico.

Norway, Wintershall Dea makes oil discovery in Norwegian Sea

Wintershall Dea, Europe's independent gas and oil company, has made an oil discovery at the own-operated Bergknapp prospect in the Norwegian Sea, close to the Maria field. The well, drilled by the Scarabeo 8 drilling rig, encountered an oil column of at least 60 meters in the Garn Formation and an oil column of at least 120 meters in the Tilje Formation, with reservoir qualities ranging from poor to good. Initial recoverable resource estimates put the discovery at between 26 and 97 million barrels of oil equivalent. The license partnership will now initiate studies, investigate potential appraisal measures and development options for the discovery.

Wintershall Dea is the operator of the discovery in PL 836S with a 40% share. License partners are Spirit Energy Norway AS (30%) and DNO Norge AS (30%). The well will be temporarily suspended, while a future production test is being considered.

Downstream oil & gas

Romania, Bilfinger secures a downstream project: Petromidia

Bilfinger Tebodin has been awarded with a new downstream project, Petromidia, which belongs to KMG International group.

Rompetrol is the main brand of KMG International, used for the refining, petrochemicals and retail activities in Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria, Georgia and also for well services in the upstream area. KMG International group aims to bring together the natural resources located in Central Asia with the markets all over Europe.

The company owns the refinery in Romania and the most modern refinery in the Black Sea region – Petromidia Refinery. It boasts a processing capacity of over 6 million tons per year. The strategic position of the refinery in the Midia Port allows a fast shipping of crude oil to Petromidia refinery and oil products to KMG International subsidiaries in Moldova, Georgia, Bulgaria as well as to other traditional partners in the Black Sea region. The Group operates a second refinery, Vega, obtained from semi-finished materials delivered by Petromidia refinery. Petromidia and Vega refineries work in full synergy, manufacturing high added-value products.

KMG International/Rompetrol had chosen Bilfinger Tebodin to prepare a study for the entire Petromidia refinery, which will support them in planning the future projects.

Power generation

Germany, Siemens and Uniper to decarbonize power generation

Uniper and Siemens Gas and Power signed a cooperation agreement for the development of projects on the decarbonization of power generation and promoting sector coupling. One focus of the planned cooperation is the production and use of "green hydrogen" – in other words, hydrogen from renewable energy sources.

The scope of the new cooperation agreement also includes the evaluation of the potential of Uniper's existing gas turbines and gas storage facilities for the use of hydrogen. The focus of the work is to define what role hydrogen can play in the future evolution of Uniper's coal power plants. Uniper recently announced that it would close or convert its coal-fired power plants in Europe by 2025 at the latest. Uniper's coal-exit plan is instrumental to make the company achieve its objective of becoming carbon neutral in Europe by 2035.

Siemens Gas and Power is helping its customers achieve their decarbonization goals. "Brownfield transformation" projects are designed to decarbonize coal-fired power plants and significantly reduce CO2 emissions from gas-fired power plants.

The aim of this cooperation is to contribute to improving the economic efficiency and thus the marketability of power-to-gas plants.

Saudi Arabia, Wärtsilä supply equipment to Saudi Arabia power plant

The technology group Wärtsilä will supply the engineering, equipment, and technical advisory for a 44 MW power plant to be installed at the Mansourah & Massarah Gold Project mine in Saudi Arabia. It will be the first newbuild power project in the country to utilize a hybrid concept, with engine technology and solar energy. The order with Wärtsilä was placed by Larsen & Toubro Ltd. The power plant will comprise six Wärtsilä 32 engines, with five in operation and one on constant stand-by. The built-in flexibility of the Wärtsilä engine technology, which allows the full power output to be reached within minutes of being started, will allow the plant to efficiently utilize renewable solar energy. Renewable source energy, such as solar and wind, require the power plant to be able to respond rapidly to an inherently fluctuating supply to enable the load to be effectively balanced.

The Wärtsilä equipment will be delivered on a fast-track basis within just 10 months from the contract signing. The plant is scheduled to be commissioned by May 2021, with commercial operations beginning a year later.

Czech Republic, Unipetrol commissions PE3 in Czech Republic

The new polyethylene unit (PE3) is expected to produce 270,000 tonnes of modern high-density polyethene granulate per year.

Unipetrol has recently completed and officially commissioned the principal part of the construction of the new polyethylene unit (PE3). The commissioning of the record-high petrochemical investment in Czech Republic's history in the state-of-the-art production facility will have a positive impact on the development of Unipetrol and the entire Orlen Group.

The new polyethylene unit, PE3, will replace the existing unit, PE1. Operations of the PE2 unit with an annual capacity of 200,000 tonnes will continue. The total production capacity of the petrochemical plant in Litvínov will grow from 320,000 to 470,000 tonnes of polyethylene. The total capital expenditure is planned at CZK 9.6bn.

The investment will enable deeper integration of the petrochemical and refinery production not only within the Unipetrol Group but also within the PKN Orlen Group. The new technologies will allow Unipetrol to expand its activities in the new market segments and increase its competitiveness in the petrochemical industry both at the national and international level.

Netherlands, The, Installation of Reformax 330 LDP Plus catalyst at OCI

The first commercial reference for Clariant's ReforMax 330 LDP Plus catalyst is a major success. Installed at OCI Nitrogen's ammonia production plant in Geleen, Netherlands, the new steam reforming catalyst has significantly reduced pressure drop, allowing the customer to benefit from a considerable increase in energy and production efficiency leading to savings of more than 300,000€ over the catalyst lifetime.

OCI Nitrogen is the European market leader in mineral fertilizers and the producer of melamine. The company's AFA 2 ammonia plant is a Bechtel design with a capacity of 1550 mtpd. Pressure drop over the front end was a crucial production limitation for OCI at AFA 2. The installation of the new ReforMax 330 LDP Plus catalyst, and optimization of catalyst volumes in other reactors, have removed this limitation, significantly increasing the plant's energy and production efficiency.

ReforMax 330 LDP Plus has demonstrated very stable operation and provided a significant reduction in pressure drop across the catalyst bed in the reformer tubes. This improvement will avail the plant with savings of more than 300,000 € over the expected catalyst lifetime of 8 years, compensating for the catalyst investment.
