    Vietnam updates IPO plans for Binh Son Refining
  • Oil - Refined oil - Acquisition/sale - Companies

    Vietnam has revised again its plans for the partial privatisation of Binh Son Refining (BSR), the owner and operator of the US$3bn Dung Quat refinery in the central Quang Ngai Province.

    In May 2017, BSR planned to sell a 5-6% stake in the company through an initial public offering (IPO) in the fourth quarter of 2017 and to sell up to 36% of the company to strategic partners within 12 months of the IPO. Under the new plans, a 4% stake could be sold in an IPO in early November 2017, to raise VND 1,900bn (US$84m). Another 49% could be sold to strategic investors in 2018. Repsol, Vietnam National Petroleum Corp, or Petrolimex, have already expressed interest in the sale of BSR, along with 17 investments funds.

    The 130,000 bbl/d refinery was commissioned in 2009 by Binh Son, a subsidiary state-owned oil group PetroVietnam, and is currently the sole refinery operating in the country, covering about 30% of local oil demand. Dung Quat plans to add 40,000 bbl/d by 2021. A second refinery, the 200,000 bbl/d Nghi Son project worth US$7.5bn, is currently under construction and should be commissioned in 2017.

    Global nuclear capacity could more than double by 2050
  • Electricity - Nuclear - Capacities - Forecasts - Supply

    According to the International Atomic Energy Agency's latest report, International Status and Prospects for Nuclear Power 2017, nuclear long-term potential remains high, in spite of an expected slowdown in coming years.

    In the short-term, nuclear capacity should decline due to the retirement of old units and lower investments to extend the life of existing plants (lower competitiveness of nuclear power and adverse nuclear policies in some countries after the 2011 Fukushima disaster). The low case projects a decline in capacity by 12% in 2030 (compared to 2016 levels of 392 GW) to 345 GW and by 15% in 2040 to 332 GW before rebounding to present levels by 2050. Up to 320 GW of new nuclear power capacity could be built by 2050, making up for the loss of retired units. Nuclear capacity should particularly decline in North America and Europe (expected Eastern Europe) with slight increase in Africa and western Asia; it should grow by 43% in central and eastern Asia by 2050.

    In the high-case scenario, global nuclear power capacity could increase by 43% in 2030 - compared to 2016 levels - to 554 GW, by 83% in 2040 to 717 GW and by 123% in 2050 to 874 GW. This doubling in capacity would be pulled by central and eastern Asia, where capacity would more than double by 2030, increase 2.9 times by 2040, and increase about 3.5 times by 2050, compared to current levels.

    Pertamina's Balongan refinery can produce Euro-4 gasoline (Indonesia)
  • Oil - Refined oil - Investments - Production - Projects - Supply

    The Indonesian Balongan refinery (West Java) is now able to produce Euro-4 compliant gasoline, as planned under the framework of its modernization programme. The 125,000 bbl/d Balongan refinery is owned by Pertamina, the state-held Indonesian oil and gas company. The group currently operates six refineries: the 170,000 bbl/d Dumai, the 133,700 bbl/d Plaju, the 348,000 Cilacap, the 260,000 bbl/d Balikpapan, the 125,000 bbl/d Balongan and the 10,000 bbl/d Kasim facilities.

    Pertamina plans to upgrade some of them but has experienced financing issues and in June 2017, it announced that it would delay some upgrades projects, including the ones developed in partnership with Russian group Rosneft or Saudi Aramco. Pertamina will delay the expansion of its 260,000 bbl/d Balikpapan refinery to 360,000 bbl/d by one year, from 2019 to 2020, and will also postpone the second phase of the project (fuel quality improvement) to 2021.

    The completion of the US$5bn upgrade of the 348,000 bbl/d Cilacap refinery in Central Java - an upgrade programme jointly led with Saudi Aramco - will be delayed by two years, from 2021 to 2023. Pertamina also plans to delay the completion of the new 300,000 bbl/d Tuban refinery, from 2021 to 2023-2024.

    Thailand's PTT and Petronas plan a JV to develop LNG in Malaysia
  • LNG - Natural Gas - Investments - Projects

    The Malaysian company Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) and Thailand's state-held oil and gas company PTT have proposed to jointly develop a natural gas liquefaction (LNG) facility in Malaysia. They expect this cooperation to take the form of a joint venture (JV) which would in turn enable PTT to grow its midstream business.

    PTT is the sole LNG importer in Thailand and created its affiliate PTT Global LNG Company in June 2017, a global LNG trading and marketing business unit. It has been designed as a joint venture between PTT (50%) and its subsidiary PTTEP Business Center Company (50%). PTT is also looking forward to expanding Thailand's LNG import capacity and has several ongoing projects such as the expansion of the Map Ta Phut LNG import terminal, which is expected to upgrade the current 5 Mt/year capacity up to 11.5 Mt/year upon completion in 2019. PTT has received official approval for the project and is also looking for a further expansion of the terminal. Ma Ta Phut LNG is the sole LNG terminal in Thailand but the construction of a second 7.5 Mt/year LNG import terminal is also planned.

    PTT also 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. A 20-year LNG supply deal was signed with BP in 2016 (1 Mt/year). 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.
