It will have minimum storage capacity of 1,300,000 barrels of crude oil.Estimated to contain  2.7 billion barrels of recoverable oil reserves, the Sangomar oilfield is planned to be developed in phases, recovering 230 million barrels under the phase one development  project.

(Credit: Frauke Feind from Pixabay) PBF Energy is planning to reconfigure Delaware City and Paulsboro refineries in the US, citing impacts on fuel demand due to the Covid-19 pandemic.The firm, depending on market conditions, plans to maintain future throughput capacity of approximately 260,000 barrels per day.As part of the reconfiguration, some of the units at the Paulsboro refinery are planned to be idled. These units include the smaller of two crude units, coker, fluid catalytic cracker and several smaller units.With the flexibility to respond to the dynamic market conditions, the reconfigured East Coast refining system will retain significant crude optionality. The reconfiguration slated for completion by the end of 2020.PBF to operate certain Delaware City and remaining Paulsboro unitsHowever, the company intends to operate certain Delaware City and remaining Paulsboro units at higher utilisation and efficiency.As a result of the East Coast refining reconfiguration, PBF Energy expects to save an annual operating cost of approximately $100m and capital expenditures of $50m.In a press statement, PBF Energy said: “We anticipate realizing a one-time benefit in reduced working capital as a result of overall lower throughput and inventory levels. We also expect to incur non-recurring expenses as a result of workforce reductions.”PBF Energy chairman and CEO Tom Nimbley said that as part of the reconfiguration, the firm will operate the most profitable components of the East Coast refining system at lower cost.Nimbley added: “This is another step in our broader strategic process aimed at increasing the competitive position of our entire refining portfolio.”The reconfiguration of the Paulsboro refinery is expected to affect 250 jobs while the partially refined feedstocks will be transferred to PBF’s nearby refinery in Delaware City, Delaware, Reuters reported citing Tom Nimbley as saying in the letter.Earlier this year, PBF Energy signed a letter of intent with Air Products and Chemicals to sell five of its hydrogen steam methane reformer (SMR) hydrogen production plants for $530m.

first_img Olympic Energy. (Credit: Vår Energi) Vår Energi acquires Olympic Energy and Troms Sirius for service in the North Sea.Work on acquiring two new vessels to support Vår Energi’s operations in the North Sea began in October.The initiative is part of the company’s strategy for sustainability, where it is important to choose suppliers with solutions that can reduce Vår Energi’s environmental footprint.We are constantly working to reduce our footprint, so we were extra happy when Olympic Energy became available. The supply vessel is one of the cleanest vessels in operation on the shelf and helps us move closer to a more environmentally friendly oil and gas production in the North Sea, says Operations Support Manager at Vår Energi, Eivind Espe.New technologyOlympic Energy is special because in addition to running on natural gas (LNG), it has a battery pack of 460 kWh on board. The battery switches on when energy consumption is at its peak. In addition, the ship can connect to shore power and charge the battery when the ship is at the quay.The second vessel is Troms Sirius. The ship uses traditional fuel but will be upgraded to be able to be connected to shore power during quay stays.Both vessels will operate between the Balder field in the North Sea and Dusavik quay, north of Stavanger. Troms Sirius will commence late November 2020, and Olympic Energy in February 2021.SustainabilityVår Energi has a total of three supply vessels on contract. In addition to Troms Sirius and Olympic Energy serving the Balder field in the south, Stil Barents operates between Polarbase in Hammerfest and the Goliat field in the Barents Sea.All vessels are equipped with technology that helps Vår Energi closer to the goal of a more environmentally friendly oil and gas production.

(Credit: Arne Reidar Mortensen / Equinor ASA) Equinor is planning to raise production capacity at its Johan Sverdrup field located 150km off the Norwegian coast in the North Sea, to 500,000 barrels per day (bpd) by the end of this year.The move will increase the field’s total production capacity by around 60,000 barrels more than the ‘original basis’ when the field came online.Estimated to have resources of 2.7 billion barrels of oil equivalent, the field has a current production capacity of 470,000bpd.The Johan Sverdrup field partners target to achieve a recovery rate of more than 70%.Johan Sverdrup field is being developed in two phasesThe field is being developed in two phases with the first phase commenced production in October 2019 while the second phase is planned to start production in the fourth quarter of 2022.Equinor operates the field with 42.6% stake while other partners include Lundin Norway (20%), Petoro (17.36%), Aker BP (11.57%) and Total (8.44%).Equinor Norway development and production senior vice-president Jez Averty said: “For the second time since the start-up the plant is able to increase its daily capacity. As Johan Sverdrup is a field with high profitability and low CO₂ emissions, a production rise is great news.“The field has low operating costs, providing revenue for the companies and Norwegian society, even in periods with low prices.”Upon completion of Phase 2, the Johan Sverdrup field production capacity is expected to increase to around 720,000 barrels of oil per day.Claimed to be the third largest oil field on the Norwegian continental shelf, the field is using water injection to secure high reserves recovery as well as to maintain production at a high level.Johan Sverdrup operations vice-president Rune Nedregaard said: “Based on the positive results of the capacity test where we produced at rates of over 500,000 barrels of oil per day, we are now working on solutions to increase the water injection capacity, which should allow us to further increase daily production capacity beyond this level by mid-2021.”last_img read more

Big three portal traffic approaches 200 million visits a month

May 7, 2021

first_imgBoth Zoopla Property Group (ZPG) and OnTheMarket have reported record traffic during January while Righmove appears to have stopped reporting its traffic entirely, although total portal traffic to the three sites is likely to be just under 200 million visits a month.But both ZPG and OnTheMarket have at least stopped throwing brickbats at each other and neither of their traffic reports mention each other, a change from recent times when both sides have questioned their competitor’s figures.ZPG says visits to its property sites Zoopla and Primelocation increased to a record of 53 million during January driven largely by mobile-based searches, which now constitute 72% of its traffic.The company also says the number of leads it generated increased by 73% year-on-year which, it says, are worth £50 million to its partner agents.“This is a great start to the year for both the business and the property market,” says Mark Goddard, MD of ZPG’s property division (pictured, left).“The numbers demonstrate that we continue to deliver incredible exposure, value and results for our partners.”OnTheMarket also had a record January, it says, receiving 11.2 million visits, an increase of 85% on the same month last year, when just over six million people visited its website.“This latest milestone is a fantastic achievement given that the portal has been live for just two years. It is a great start to 2017,” says Ian Springett, chief executive of OnTheMarket (pictured, right).“We came into being to challenge and inject competition into a marketplace heavily dominated by two powerful portal businesses.“We have already made considerable progress and are as committed as ever to our long-term objective of creating a superior alternative search service for consumers and agents alike.”The last time Rightmove published figures on its traffic, in January last year, the website said it had received 127 million visits and generated five million leads and 1.7 billion page views.Rightmove OnTheMarket portal traffic Zoopla ZPG February 2, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
