    Vietnam government updates 2016-2020 power sector restructuring plan
  • Electricity - Policy

    The government of Vietnam has approved a project on restructuring the power sector in 2016 – 2020 with orientation up to 2025, aimed at enhancing the efficiency of production and business and at strengthening the openness and fair competition.

    The 2016-2020 plan plans the equitisation of power generation companies in 2016-2018; EVN, PVN and Vinacomin would retain at least 51% of the generation companies, which would be responsible to carry out the new power projects according the Power Planning VII. The state would withdraw further from the generation companies in 2019-2020 (to below control levels) and separate them from their groups. The National Power System Dispatching Center would continue to operate the power system and power market.

    Global wind capacity reached 487 GW in 2016 with 54 GW added
  • Electricity - Renewables - Wind - Capacities - Data - Supply

    According to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), global wind additions reached 54.6 GW in 2016, raising total capacity to nearly 487 GW. This capacity addition is lower than the record posted in 2015 (+63.6 GW) but 2017 should see significant installations too.

    Ten country accounted for 88% of total installations, with 47.9 GW installed. As in previous years, China was the largest installer in 2016 with nearly 43% of global installations. The country installed 23.3 GW in 2016 (compared to 30 GW in 2015, due to impending feed-in tariff reductions) and reached 168.7 GW. This is twice the installed capacity in the United States (82.2 GW), where 8.2 GW were installed during the year (as in 2015). Canada (702 MW) and Mexico (454 MW) posted solid though modest gains. India set a new national record with 3.6 GW of new installations, becoming the 4th largest market with 28.7 GW. Nearly 14 GW were installed in Europe, thanks to Germany (+5.4 GW), France (+1.6 GW) and Turkey (+1.4 GW). In Latin America, Brazil installed 2 GW, followed by Chile (+513 MW).

    Where offshore wind capacity is concerned, 2.2 GW were installed during the year, raising global offshore capacity to 14.4 GW. Germany installed 813 MW during the year, reaching 4.1 GW and maintaining its second rank behind the United States (+56 MW, to 5.2 GW). With 592 MW installed offshore, China overtook Denmark as the third largest offshore wind capacity (1.6 GW for China, compared to 1.3 GW for Denmark). The Netherlands installed 691 MW, reaching 1.1 GW.

    Thailand aims to boost its LNG imports
  • LNG - Natural Gas - Companies - Projects

    Thailand's state-owned oil and gas company PTT has confirmed plans to more than double its existing LNG regasification capacity in Thailand and is eyeing LNG development abroad to secure its gas supply.

    PTT, which operates the sole LNG terminal in Thailand, the 5 Mt/year Map Ta Phut terminal, is currently doubling its capacity to 10 Mt/year (expected in 2017) and will add a third phase of 1.5 Mt/year in 2019. The group is also developing a 7.5 Mt/year LNG import terminal in Rayong, due to start operation in 2023. This would nearly quadruple the regasification capacity in Thailand, from the current level of 5 Mt/year to 19 Mt/year in 2023.

    PTT has recently signed a 15-year LNG supply contract (1.2 Mt/year) with Malaysian oil and gas company Petronas, on top of existing LNG supply agreements with BP, Shell and Qatargas. The Thai company is also seeking new long-term suppliers in Australia, North America and Africa; its E&P subsidiary PTTEP holds an 8.5% stake in the Rovuma Offshore Area 1 project in Mozambique, where a 12 Mt/year LNG production plant is under consideration.

  • Coal - Electricity - Thermal - Engie - Acquisition/sale - Capacities - Companies - Supply

    French energy group Engie has completed the sale of its interests in the Meenakshi and Paiton coal-fired power plants located in India and in Indonesia, as announced in its 3-year strategic transformation plan released in early 2016.

    The group has sold its 40.5% stake in the 2,035 MW Paiton coal-fired power plant (824 MW equity) to Nebras Power and a combination of some of the existing Paiton shareholders. Engie's 88.2% shareholding in the Meenakshi coal-fired power plant in India (269 MW installed and 638 MW under construction) has been sold to India Power Corporation Limited (IPCL).

    These transactions are fully in line with the Group’s ambition to reduce its exposure to merchant activities while, at the same time, reducing its total coal-fired installed generation capacity.

    OPEC producers cut oil production by 1.07 mb/d in January 2017
  • Crude oil - Oil - Data - Production - Supply

    Preliminary data indicate that crude oil production from the 13 members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) declined by 1.07 mb/d in January 2017 (to 30.1 mb/d), compared to December 2016 levels (31.17 mb/d). Production quotas entered into force on 1 January 2017, as agreed in November 2016.

    This corresponds to 82% of the reduction target. Saudi Arabia was the main contributor to the cut, with a daily production level falling from 10.45 mb/d in December 2016 to 9.98 mb/d in January 2017. Meanwhile, Iraq reduced its output by 4.2% to 4.51 mb/d and Iran's production slightly increased (+0.5% to 3.73 mb/d), as approved in the November 2016 agreement. In Libya and Nigeria, which are not included in production cut programmes, crude oil output slightly increased, by 9.5% in Libya to 690 kb/d and by 1.9% in Nigeria to 1.57 mb/d.

    Shell divests UK North Sea assets and gas field in Thailand for $4.7bn
  • Natural Gas - Shell - Acquisition/sale - Companies

    As part of its US$30bn divestment programme, Shell has announced the sale of North Sea oil and gas assets in the United Kingdom and that of a minority stake in a gas field in Thailand.

    Shell will sell a package of UK North Sea assets, including its entire interests in Buzzard (21.73%), Beryl (39.4%), Bressay (18.4%), Elgin-Franklin (14.1%), J-Block (30.5%), the Greater Armada cluster excluding Gaulpe (76.4%), Everest (100%), Lomond (100%), Erskine (32%) and Schiehallion (10%; Shell will retain 45%), to Chrysaor for a total of up to US$3.8bn. The package represents a total production of 115,000 boe/d, i.e. more than half of Shell's total UK North Sea production during 2016 (around 211 kboe/d). This US$3.8bn amount includes an initial consideration of US$3bn and a payment of up to US$600m between 2018-2021 subject to commodity price, with potential further payments of up to US$180m for future discoveries. The transaction is expected to be completed in the second half of 2017.

    Shell has reached an agreement with Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company (KUFPEC) for the sale of its subsidiaries Shell Integrated Gas Thailand and Thai Energy, which together hold a 22.222% stake in the Bongkot gas field in Thailand for US$900m. The sale also includes adjoining acreage offshore Thailand consisting of Blocks 15, 16 and 17 and block G12/48. The transaction is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017.

    The Bongkot field is operated by PTT Exploration & Production, with a 44.445% interest, in partnership with Total (33.333%). As for the Open-hearted Erawan gas field, the concession is due to expire in 2023. The Erawan and Bongkot fields jointly produce 62 mcm/d (23 bcm/year) of gas, accounting for ore than 3/4 of gas production in the Gulf of Thailand. The Thailand military government will hold an auction in 2017 to select the fields' new operators. Bids should be opened in 2017 and the auction should be completed in 2018. If the auction fails to attract bidders, the government will negotiate extensions with the existing holders of the concessions (Chevron and PTTEP will be allowed to bid in the auction).

    Pertamina will upgrade its Balongan refinery (Indonesia)
  • Oil - Refined oil - Companies - Projects

    Indonesian state-run oil and gas group Pertamina has decided to go ahead with the planned upgrade of its 125,000 bbl/d Balongan refinery in West Java (Indonesia), even without any partner.

    The company, which planned to join forces with strategic partners to upgrade the facility, entered into an initial agreement with Saudi Arabia's national oil company Saudi Aramco in 2015, which expired in November 2016. Pertamina will thus upgrade the refinery alone, and may reduce investments in the refinery, depending on its financial conditions.

    Pertamina aims to nearly double the capacity of its Balongan refinery, from the current 125,000 bbl/d to 240,000 bbl/d by 2020. The upgrade will be completed in two stages, with the first phase worth US$1.2bn to process medium crude with a sulphur content of 0.4-0.5%. In the second phase - where Saudi Aramco would still be invited to take part - Pertamina would seek to process sour crude and to improve competitiveness.

    Pertamina is also considering inviting a partner to the upgrade of its 170,000 bbl/d Dumai refinery in Riau, which is not expected to be completed before 2024.
