Upstream oil & gas

Central African Republic, SEE 4P encounters oil sands in the Gamba: VAALCO

VAALCO Energy, Inc announced that the South East Etame 4P appraisal wellbore drilled from the VAALCO operated South East Etame North Tchibala platform offshore Gabon in the Etame Marin permit area successfully encountered oil sands in the Gamba formation.

With the drilling of the South East Etame 4P appraisal wellbore, VAALCO has satisfied the drilling commitment as part of the PSC extension that VAALCO signed in late 2018. This step-out discovery at South East Etame is similar in reservoir quality when compared to the Gamba reservoir from which the South East Etame 2H well is being produced. VAALCO plans to drill the South East Etame 4H that will target 1.0 to 2.0 million barrels of gross prospective resources, down from the initial predrill estimate of 4.2 MMBO which anticipated a thicker oil column than was encountered in the South East Etame 4P appraisal wellbore. Initial gross production rates are expected to fall within the range from 1,200 to 2,500 BOPD, or 325 to 675 BOPD net revenue interest to VAALCO.

Mexico, Eni announces a new oil discovery offshore Mexico

Eni announced a new oil discovery on the Saasken Exploration Prospect in Block 10, located in the mid-deep water of the Cuenca Salina in the Sureste Basin, Offshore Mexico. According to preliminary estimates, the new discovery may contain between 200 and 300 million barrels of oil in place.

Saasken-1 NFW well, which has led to the discovery, is the sixth consecutive successful well drilled by Eni offshore Mexico in the Sureste Basin. It is located approximately 65 kilometers off the coast, and was drilled by the Valaris 8505 Semisub in a water depth of 340 meters and reached a total depth of 3,830 meters.

Saasken-1 discovered 80 meters of net pay of good quality oil in the Lower Pliocene and Upper Miocene sequences. The reservoirs show excellent petrophysical properties. An intensive data collection has been carried out on the well and the data acquired indicate a production capacity for the well of more than 10,000 barrels of oil per day.

The discovery is opening a potential commercial outcome of Block 10 since several other prospects located nearby may be clustered in a synergic development.

China, China to lead Asian CDUs capacity additions by 2024

China is expected to lead Asian refinery crude distillation units (CDUs) capacity additions by 2024, accounting for about 46% of the total capacity additions from planned and announced (new-build) projects, says GlobalData.

The company's report, 'Global Refinery Crude Distillation Units (CDU) Outlook to 2024 – Capacity and Capital Expenditure Outlook with Details of All Operating and Planned Crude Distillation Units', reveals that China is expected to add 2.3 million barrels per day (mmbd) of planned and announced CDU capacity by 2024.

GlobalData expects Sri Lanka to be the second largest country in Asia in terms of new-build refinery CDU capacity additions by 2024. The country is expected to add 620 mbd of CDU capacity by 2024. Of this, 200 mbd of CDU capacity is expected to come from the planned Hambantota I refinery, while the Hambantota III, an announced refinery, would add the remaining 420 mbd.

Pakistan will be the third largest among the countries in Asia with planned and announced refinery CDU capacity of 535 mbd by 2024. The Khalifa refinery with an expected CDU capacity of 250 mbd is likely to commence operations in 2023.

Russia, Gazprom increases the production and sale of MARPOL

Gazprom Neft is expanding its production and sale of MARPOL-compliant environmentally-friendly marine fuels — the company's Omsk Refinery having been producing a new 0.5% low-sulphur fuel since January 2020.

RME-180 M-grade marine fuel is a Gazprom Neft proprietary product. The transition to producing environmentally-friendly marine fuel has been made possible thanks to the ongoing development programme at the company's Omsk Refinery. Three and a half kilometres of pipelines to transport marine-fuel components to the mixing and shipment facility were installed at the Omsk Refinery in preparing for the production of this new offering.

Sales of environmentally-friendly marine fuels are undertaken by Gazpromneft-Marine Bunker, operator of the Gazprom Neft bunkering business. The first consignment of this environmentally-friendly fuel was undertaken onboard the Italian Ice Point tanker by a Gazpromneft-Omsk bunkering vessel.

Gazprom Neft launched a hybrid marine fuel, with a sulphur content of less than 0.5%, in December 2019 in anticipation of MARPOL-2020 standards coming into force. Total supplies of Gazprom Neft environmentally-friendly marine fuels could exceed 1.5 million tonnes in 2020.

Brazil, Nordex to supply 24 turbines for a wind farm in Brazil

The Nordex Group has received an order to supply 24 AW132/3465 turbines for the fourth construction phase of a wind farm complex in Brazil. The contract also includes a service agreement for maintenance and repair of the turbines for a period of 15 years.

The site of the wind farm is located in the state of Rio Grande do Norte near to the city of São Miguel do Gostoso, on the Atlantic. It consists of four individual sections, of which the Nordex Group also set up the 50 AW132 turbines for the first three construction phases. After completion of the fourth phase, the wind farm complex will comprise a total of 74 turbines with an overall installed capacity of more than 256 MW.

The Nordex Group will install the 24 turbines on 120-metre concrete towers. The company will be producing the concrete towers required in its local factory in Areia Branca. The nacelles will be built in the manufacturer's plant in Bahia. The Nordex Group will also be obtaining the rotor blades from Brazil to ensure that the project includes the maximum share of local production.

Mexico, Vestas secures 108 MW EPC order in Mexico

Vestas has secured an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) order for the 108 MW Energía Sierra Juárez II wind park, to be located in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico. The contract includes the supply, transport, installation, and commissioning of 26 V150-4.2 MW of which some are delivered on 4.0 MW operating mode.

The order has been placed by Energía Sierra Juárez, a joint venture between IEnova, a Sempra Energy Company. The order also includes an Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for the operation and maintenance of the wind park over the next 15 years.

The energy produced by this project will be commercialized through a PPA contract with the utility San Diego Gas & Electric.

Turbine delivery is expected in the Q3 of 2020 whilst commissioning is planned for the Q2 of 2021.

Netherlands, The, GE deliver VSDS to a petrochem plant by Shell Nederland

GE Power has successfully delivered the variable speed drive system (VSDS) and an e-house to the petrochemical plant by Shell Nederland Chemie B.V.

GE's VSDS, encompassing the high-speed induction motor and the variable speed drive, can reach steadily over approximately 90% energy efficiency for the compressor train. A small footprint and less necessary auxiliary requirements provide flexibility to the plant layout and enable smooth plant integration, which in turn reduce the associated infrastructure costs.

Given the nature of electric solutions, it also helps ease the environmental impact from the field operations, significantly contributing to the decarbonization of the plant. Since the project execution, the VSDS has been up and running flawlessly in the plant, achieving the required speed of 6400RPM as well as the required air capacity of the compressor since start-up.

Shell Nederland Chemie B.V. Moerdijk manufactures base chemicals from the petroleum fractions naphtha, hydrowax, gasoil, and LPG. The products made are used by customers to manufacture many everyday products, such as lightweight car components, heat insulation materials, polyester fibers, latex paints, and mattresses.

Switzerland, Burckhardt Compression signs an agreement with GRZ

Burckhardt Compression is cooperating with GRZ Technologies, a spin-off of Laboratory of Materials for Renewable Energy from EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland, to develop a new hydrogen compression technology. It will be deployed in hydrogen fuel stations, hydrogen energy storage systems, and other applications and will make use of thermal active metal hydrides. Hydrogen is a promising energy carrier that offers carbon-neutral energy for industry and mobility.

The Static Hydrogen Compressor from Burckhardt Compression operates without moving parts but with thermal active metal hydrides. The Static Hydrogen Compressor is based on the GRZ's HYCO laboratory-scale metal hydrides compression solution that is already in use for small amounts of hydrogen. Burckhardt Compression will scale up the solution for the new, strongly developing market of hydrogen refueling stations and hydrogen energy storage systems. These compressors operate with metal hydrides and will be designed for high-pressure solutions of 200, 350 and 700 bar.

The noise and vibration-free compressor is hermetically sealed from the environment and therefore operates without any gas leakage and can be used in sensitive areas. As the compressor is completely oil-free, it can be used for hydrogen energy storage purposes.

India, LNG market sees demand build for cleaner-burning energy

Global demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) grew by 12.5% to 359 million tonnes in 2019, according to Shell's latest annual LNG Outlook published – a significant increase that bolsters LNG's growing role in the transition to a lower-carbon energy system.

Natural gas emits between 45 and 55% fewer greenhouse gas emissions and less than one-tenth of the air pollutants than coal when used to generate electricity.

New spot-trading mechanisms and a wider variety of indices used for long-term contracts point towards LNG becoming an increasingly flexible commodity.

There was a modest rise in imports to Asia in 2019, compared to the previous two years, a result of mild weather and rising electricity generation from nuclear power in Japan and South Korea.

In China, LNG imports increased by 14% in 2019 as efforts continued to improve urban air quality. In total, Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan imported 36 million tonnes, an increase of 19% over the last year, pointing to emerging growth countries in Asia.

Over the longer-term, global LNG demand is expected to double to 700 million tonnes by 2040, according to forecasts, as gas plays a significant role in shaping a lower-carbon energy system.

United States of America, Siemens to supply BOG packages for Calcasieu Pass

Siemens was awarded a contract to supply three boil-off compressor (BOG) packages for Venture Global's Calcasieu Pass LNG Project. The new LNG export facility, Calcasieu Pass, is currently under construction in southwestern Louisiana's Cameron Parish, approximately 50 miles south of Lake Charles. Once fully commissioned, the facility is expected to produce 10 MTPA of clean liquefied natural gas that will be exported to global markets.

The LNG project is implemented by Venture Global Calcasieu Pass, LLC, a subsidiary of Venture Global LNG, Inc., a Gulf Coast LNG developer. Engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPC) are contracted to Kiewit, who selected Siemens in connection with the balance of plant scope.

Siemens' scope of supply covers the engineering, manufacturing and testing of two centrifugal BOG compression packages and one reciprocating BOG compression package. All compressors will be directly driven by electric motors.

Site construction is underway, and the compression trains are expected to ship in summer and fall 2020.
