AGRI Black Sea LNG project lets feasibility study to Penspen

AGRI LNG Project Co. SRL, the project company for the AGRI Project, has let a feasibility study to Penspen Ltd. for the Azerbaijan-Georgia-Romania-Hungary Natural Gas Interconnector Project (AGRI). AGRI will transport and market Azerbaijani and other Caspian region natural gas to Romania, Hungary, and other Central European and EU gas markets through Georgia and the Black Sea via construction of new liquefaction and regasification terminals on the Black Sea coasts of Georgia and Romania respectively.

Penspen’s feasibility study will include:

• Gas market and supply analysis.

• Development of conceptual engineering for pipelines and LNG terminals.

• Economic and financial analysis.

• Risk assessment and environmental aspects.

Penspen expects to complete the feasibility study in November.

AGRI LNG Project Co. SRL shareholders comprise the national oil and gas companies from each of the four participating countries: Romanian National Natural Gas Co., State Oil Co. of Azerbaijan Republic, Georgian Oil & Gas Corp., and Hungarian Electricity Co. PLC.

On Apr. 13, 2010, officials from Azerbaijan, Romania, and Georgia signed a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in LNG and its transportation, laying the framework for the AGRI project and establishing AGRI LNG SRL, headquartered in Bucharest. Hungary joined AGRI in February 2011.

Global LNG: Adjusting to New Realities

Fri, Mar 20, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.

The Future of US Refining

Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
