Shell stapt uit megaproject met Gazprom

Energieconcern Shell trekt zich terug uit de bouw van een LNG-fabriek aan de Russische Baltische kust. De Russische partner Gazprom kondigde eind maart aan naast de installatie ook een fabriek te willen bouwen die vetgas kan verwerken, afkomstig uit West-Siberië. Daar voelt het Brits-Nederlandse olieconcern niets voor.

‘Na de aankondiging van Gazprom op 29 maart over het definitieve ontwikkelingsconcept van Baltisch LNG, hebben we besloten onze betrokkenheid bij dit project stop te zetten’, zegt voorzitter Cederic Cremers van Shell Rusland in een verklaring.
Hij voegt eraan toe dat andere gezamenlijke projecten met Gazprom, reeds beklonken in 2015, geen gevaar lopen door de beslissing van Shell.

Omdat er nog geen contracten waren getekend voor de LNG-installatie aan de Baltische kust, zijn er voor Shell geen financiële gevolgen.

Gazprom moet nu de kosten voor het project, ruim €10 mrd, zelf ophoesten.

Lenen is lastig voor Gazprom
Gazprom zit wel met een probleem. De kosten voor het Baltisch LNG belopen omgerekend ruim €10 mrd en die moet het Russisch staatsgasbedrijf nu zelf ophoesten. Lenen op de internationale kredietmarkt is door de Westerse sancties - ingesteld onder meer wegens de agressie van Rusland in Oekraïne - vrijwel onmogelijk.

Volgens zakenkrant Kommersant is die €10 mrd te optimistisch berekend, omdat de plannen inmiddels in grotere installaties voorzien en Gazprom een aantal kosten, onder meer voor het gastransport, niet heeft meegenomen in zijn berekening.
Bovendien zal het de techniek die Shell in huis heeft node missen. Shell wilde de technologie die het speciaal voor het Sachalin 2-project (op het gelijknamige Russische eiland in het oosten van het land) had ontwikkeld ook voor Baltisch LNG aanwenden. In februari had het daarvoor een joint venture met Gazprom opgezet die Shells LNG-kennis moesten helpen Ruslands eigen technologie te ontwikkelen.

Druk van Washington
De samenwerking moest Rusland ook afschermen van nieuwe sancties door de Verenigde Staten op het gebied van LNG, een sector waarin maar een handvol spelers (naast Shell, Exxon en Total) over de sleuteltechnologie beschikken. Washington zet Europese landen en bedrijven steeds verder onder druk af te zien van olie- en gasdeals met Rusland.

Op die manier wil het Europa minder afhankelijk maken van Rusland dat de olie- en gasexport als politiek drukmiddel kan gebruiken. Moskou beweert het tegenovergestelde: de VS willen van de Russische grondstoffen af om hun eigen voorraden (vooral schaliegas) in Europa af te zetten.

Nieuwe partner komt uit Rusland
Gazprom kondigde na het afhaken van Shell direct aan in zee te gaan met een nieuwe partner voor het project, het Russische Roesgazdobytsja (‘Russische gaswinning’). Dat bedrijf heeft geen enkele ervaring met dit soort grote projecten, maar is opgericht door Arkadi Rotenberg, een oude vriend van president Vladimir Poetin.
Door Rotenbergs nauwe banden met het Kremlin kunnen zijn bedrijven al bijna twee decennia lang rekenen op het uitvoeren van de duurste bouwprojecten in Rusland. De vraag is echter of het Roesgazdobytsja het wegvallen van technische kennis van een in dit soort klussen gepokt en gemazeld bedrijf als Shell kan compenseren.

Immense hoeveelheid gas
En het gaat om nogal een karwei: het Baltische LNG-project en het nieuwe gasverwerkingscomplex in Oest-Loega gaan bij elkaar zo’n 45 miljard kubieke meter gas op jaarbasis opslurpen. Dat is de jaarlijkse hoeveelheid die heel Frankrijk verbruikt.

Keppel Marine & DNV GL to promote LNG as ship fuel

Classification society DNV GL and Keppel Marine and Deepwater Technology, a subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine, announced that they have signed a framework agreement to boost the uptake of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as ship fuel. The agreement covers potential newbuilding projects including LNG bunker vessels, small-scale LNG carriers and floating storage regasification units (FSRUs), as well as LNG related assets employing battery and hybrid technologies.

As the first delivery in the agreement, DNV GL will issue Approval in Principle (AiP) certificates for two LNG bunker vessel designs from KMDTech:

a 7,500 cbm small-scale LNG carrier with bunkering capabilities and
a 7,500 cbm small-scale LNG carrier with bunkering capabilities and hybrid battery propulsion.

The LNG carriers are each designed to carry up to 7,500 cubic meters of LNG in Type C-tanks. An optimised deck arrangement for the modular LNG gas supply, filling and safety systems increases the cargo capacity and efficiency of the vessels. They are equipped with engines that can run on both diesel and LNG, and will also have a class notation for bunkering which enables the provision of LNG bunkering services if required.

In light of the upcoming IMO 2020 SOx regulations, LNG as marine fuel is viewed as one of the most viable options for deep-sea shipping. DNV GL’s Maritime Forecast to 2050, part of the research behind the DNV GL Energy Transition Outlook 2018, projects that more than 10 per cent of the world’s shipping fleet will be powered by LNG by 2030, compared to less than 0.3 per cent in 2019. The report anticipates that LNG powered vessels will make up 23 per cent of the world’s fleet by 2050.

South Korea’s LPG imports expected to increase 9.5% in 2019

South Korea’s LPG imports are expected to increase 9.5% in 2019 on account of stronger demand from the petrochemical sector as well as the recent policy change that will allow LPG-fueled vehicles in the private sector. South Korea’s LPG market was starting to look saturated with low demand, but as the government is reconsidering cleaner fuels, its demand is likely to shoot up. Severe air pollution in the country caused mainly by vehicular emissions has forced the government to rethink its earlier strategy.

Until February 2019 only commercial vehicles such as taxis, rental cars, vans and small buses in the country were allowed to use LPG as auto fuel. But from end-March, the government has permitted anyone in the country to buy LPG-powered vehicles, or to modify their cars to run on LPG as part of its efforts to improve air quality. The move makes sense, as LPG vehicles emit less fine dust compared with conventional gas or diesel-fueled cars.

Keppel completes first LNG cargo import from North America

Keppel Gas Pte Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Infrastructure Holdings Pte Ltd, has completed its first Liquefied Natural Gas cargo import under Singapore's Spot Import Policy, which allows up to 10% of Singapore's total long term contracted gas supplies to be imported on a spot cargo basis. The spot cargo of 160,000m3 of LNG originated from an LNG liquefaction project in North America, marking the first time that Keppel Gas has diversified its gas supply portfolio beyond Southeast Asia. The LNG cargo reached Singapore on 10 April 2019 and will be regasified as feedstock for downstream customers and end users, including Keppel Merlimau Cogen, over a continuous period of 30 days. Such recurring spot LNG import opportunities help to bolster Keppel Gas' gas supply portfolio, complementing its long-term pipeline gas import business.

Ms Janice Bong, General Manager (Energy Infrastructure), Keppel Infrastructure, said, "We are pleased to have deepened our collaboration with industry partners across the gas value chain to deliver competitive gas supplies promptly. By tapping the opportunities offered by the spot LNG market, we are able to ride on global trends to support our integrated energy business over the long term."

Keppel Gas is an importer, shipper and retailer of natural gas in Singapore's liberalised gas market. Its imported natural gas supply portfolio comprises long-term piped natural gas and LNG contracts, and is supplemented from time to time with spot LNG import. The imported natural gas is supplied to a portfolio of major refineries, petrochemical companies, industrial companies and Keppel Merlimau Cogen, a 1,300 MW combined cycle gas turbine generation facility.

POSCO to reorganize LNG processing operations to enhance efficiency

Yonhap reported that POSCO said that it will reorganize its liquefied natural gas operations as part of its efforts to enhance its business efficiency. It said “Its board of directors last week approved the transfer of its LNG terminal in Gwangyang, 423 kilometers southeast of Seoul, to its power generation affiliate, POSCO Energy. It will, in exchange, take over the off-gas combined cycle power plant run by the energy affiliate.”

The power plant uses excess gases, generated by the steel mills blast furnaces and coke oven, to create electric power.

The reorganization focuses on raising synergy between POSCO Daewoo, the steelmaker's resource development and trading arm, and POSCO Energy.

Keppel Offshore receives final approval for the conversion of Gimi FLNG project


Keppel Offshore & Marine’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Keppel Shipyard Ltd, received the Final Notice to Proceed from Gimi MS Corporation, a subsidiary of Golar LNG Limited, to commence full conversion works for the Gimi Floating Liquefaction Vessel project. The total contract is worth USD 947million and builds on the issuance of the Limited Notice to Proceed on 17 December 2018.

Keppel Shipyard’s scope of work in the conversion of a Moss Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) carrier into an FLNG vessel includes the design, detailed engineering and procurement of the marine systems as well as conversion-related construction services. It will be similar to the work done on the first FLNG vessel, Hilli Episeyo, which Keppel undertook for Golar, but will be customised for the 20-year BP Greater Tortue Ahmeyim contract offshore West Africa. Delivery of the vessel is expected in 1H 2022.

Mr Chris Ong, CEO of Keppel O&M, said that "We are glad to continue this strong partnership with Golar on such a successful FLNG solution. The success of the Hilli Episeyo has provided the industry with strong proof of the attractiveness of Golar and Keppel's conversion solution. This has further strengthened our offerings along the gas value chain. Leveraging our engineering as well as execution expertise and LNG capabilities, we are able to partner customers in developing innovative and fit-for-purpose solutions to meet the needs of the market."

Keppel’s conversion solution has proven to be cost-efficient and quick-to-market. Hilli Episeyo, the world's first converted FLNG vessel, was delivered in record time and on budget to Golar LNG for work offshore Kribi, Cameroon.
