UK-UAE joint venture to build Indonesian refineries

KUALA LUMPUR�A United Arab Emirates-UK venture is planning to build two oil refineries in the Indonesian provinces of Aceh and West Nusa Tenggara with a total investment of $2.8 billion, the Indonesian News Agency has reported.

It quoted Yus'an, a deputy chief of Indonesia's capital investment board, as saying that an Indonesian company�PT MITS, a local joint-venture partner�had asked for government approval to build the two refineries. PT MITS Indonesia is a joint venture between Britain's Mayhill International Trading & Service Co. and an investor from the UAE.

Yus'an said the $2.8 billion the companies pledged for the two refineries would come "entirely from their own capital."

The plant in Aceh will be built on the island of Weh, and the one in West Nusa Tenggara will be located on the island of Taliwang.

Each refinery would cost $1.4 billion to build and would have a processing capacity of 500,000 b/d of crude oil, all of which would be imported from the UAE.

The official said the plants would each have capacity to produce annually 1.6 million tons of gasoline, 800,000 tons of jet fuel, 1.3 million tons of diesel oil, and 800,000 tons of other products, including asphalt and oil residue.

The fuel products would be exported, but other products would be used in the domestic market.

Indonesia produces and exports sweet, low-sulfur crude oil and imports cheaper lower grades of oil for domestic use.

Better Data, Better Analytics, Better Decisions

When Tue, Oct 27, 2015

The Oil & Gas industry has large amounts of data stored in multiple systems which are purpose built for certain tasks. However, good decisions require insights based upon the data in all of these systems. These systems in turn do not talk to each other. So the process of analyzing data, gaining insights, and making decisions is a slow one and often a flawed one. Good decisions require accurate analytics and accurate analytics require superior/sustainable data quality and governance. This webinar focuses on:

  • The importance of data quality and governance
  • How technological advances are making data quality and governance sustainable in order to get the accurate analytics to make solid decisions.

The Resilient Oilfield in the Internet of Things World

Tue, Sep 22, 2015

As we hear about the hype surrounding the Internet of Things, the oil and gas industry is questioning what is different than what is already being done. What is new?  Using sensors and connecting devices is nothing new to our mode of business and in many ways the industry exemplifies many principles of an industrial internet of things. How does the Internet of Things impact the oil and gas industry?

Prolific instrumentation and automation digitized the industry and has changed the approach to business models calling for a systems led approach.  Resilient Systems have the ability to adapt to changing circumstances while maintaining their central purpose.  A resilient system, such as Maximo, allows an asset intensive organization to leverage connected devices by merging real-time asset information with other critical asset information and using that information to create a more agile organization.  

Join this webcast, sponsored by IBM, to learn how about Internet of Things capabilities and resilient systems are impacting the landscape of the oil and gas industry.
