LNG shipments set to soar from the United States Fri 14 Dec 2018 by Selwyn Parker Print story Email us AddThis Sharing Buttons Share to LinkedIn Share to TwitterShare to FacebookShare to Google+ LNG shipments set to soar from the United States Sabine Pass shipped its first LNG in January 2016 Shipments of LNG from the United States are set to soar throughout 2019 as the industry’s export capacity grows rapidly, up to 8.9Bn ft3 a day by the end of the year, according to the US Energy Information Administration’;s Today in Energy’s site. Simultaneously, four additional export terminals have received all the necessary approvals from the Federal Regulatory Commission and the Department of Energy. Final investment decisions on these projects, which amount to a combined additional LNG export capacity of 7.6Bn ft3, are expected in early 2019. As export and production capacity expands, so is the bunker infrastructure required by the global shipping industry. Shell, for example, will shortly be able to supply LNG fuel to cruise ships via an articulated bunker barge along the entire eastern coast off the United States as the fuel gains a foothold in the country’s maritime industry. “LNG has been developing in the Far East and in Europe for some time,” pointed out Wärtsilä sales manager for marine solutions Bill Amundsen. “[But] development in the US has been lagging, the main reason being the lack of a reliable transportation link. The big question is: ‘how am I going to get this fuel?’” Those concerns will be relieved in part by the articulated bunker barge on which work began in late 2017. Developed by Quality LNG, VT Halter Marine, Wärtsilä and Shell, the barge has a capacity of 4,000 m3. Shell has taken the vessel on a long-term charter. “The barge provides a transport link from the liquefaction plant to the ship receiving the LNG,” added Mr Amundsen. “It therefore increases the availability of LNG as a fuel source.” In a similar initiative ExxonMobil has plans to supply LNG to vessels pumped from a liquefaction plant in Jacksonville, Florida. Taken together, the prospects are for a rapid increase in the 13 LNG-fuelled vessels currently plying the United States coastline. Another 15 are already in the pipeline. Few predicted the rate at which the United States’ LNG exports would grow. At an output of 8.9Bn ft3 by the end of 2019, up from a predicted 4.9Bn ft3 in 2018, the United State’s export capacity will be the third-largest in the world, behind only Australia and Qatar. According to most analysts, the rapid increase in the country’s LNG exports is a major factor in the current spate of orders for LNG carriers that will mainly shuttle between the US and Asia. America has jumped quickly into the top order. The United States only began exporting LNG from the Lower 48 states in early 2016 when the Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal in Louisiana shipped its first cargo. Since then, the EIA points out, Sabine Pass has expanded from just one to four operating liquefaction trains while the Cove Point LNG export facility in Maryland also began operations. Meanwhile two more trains are expected to ship their first cargos within the next few weeks – Sabine Pass’s fifth train and Corpus Christi’s first. Both opened several months ahead of schedule. Export shipments will accelerate right through 2019 on the back of new start-ups, according to the EIA. They are the export-dedicated Cameron LNG in Louisiana and Freeport LNG in Texas, both now in the commissioning process. First LNG is expected from these plants in H1 2019 and production is slated to expand steadily thereafter. Their developers expect all of Cameron LNG’s three trains and Freeport’s two trains to be put into service during the year. And yet another new LNG facility at Elba Island near Savannah, Georgia, is on schedule to become fully operational during 2019 in what looks like an unstoppable momentum for the industry.

Legendary Oil Trader Is Bullish On Oil Prices By Tsvetana Paraskova - Dec 14, 2018, 3:00 AM CST Andy Hall Legendary oil trader Andy Hall, who was nicknamed oil ‘God’ for profitably predicting a bull run in oil prices in the past, told Bloomberg TV on Thursday that oil prices would rise from current levels, as they may have hit the bottom after plunging by 30 percent in just two months. “I think with prices hovering around or a little over $50 a barrel, I think you would have to have a pretty negative outlook on the global economy to believe that prices will continue their downward trajectory,” Hall told Bloomberg TV in an interview, noting that he doesn’t see a global recession soon. Moreover, a slump in oil prices like the one we’ve seen over the past two months typically slows down supply growth while boosting demand, if there isn’t a global economic slowdown. Lower prices will undoubtedly impact U.S. production growth, Hall said, but added that the surge in American oil production above expectations has been the biggest surprise this year. In the weeks leading up to the OPEC+ meeting in Vienna, Hall was one of the analysts expecting an OPEC-assisted rebound in prices. “The balance of risk at this point favors some sort of recovery,” Hall said in an interview with Bloomberg in November, two weeks before OPEC and its Russia-led non-OPEC partners decided to cut a total of 1.2 million bpd of oil production for six month beginning in January, with an option to review the agreement in April. Before the new OPEC+ deal, the stronger U.S. dollar against emerging-market currencies and concerns over the U.S.-China trade war were weighing on demand, while inventories were rising, according to Hall. Hall, the oil trader who had bet on higher oil prices for more than a decade, continued to hold his bullish view even after the 2014 oil price crash. But in the summer of 2017, he closed his main fund Astenbeck after the fund posted double-digit losses. “In short, Opec, the market and oil bulls have run out of runway,” Hall said in a letter to investors seen by the Financial Times in July 2017.

The government of Nigeria said Thursday it has filed a $1.09 billion claim against Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDSA.LN) and ENI SpA (ENI.MI) in London, opening a new front in a long-running dispute over a 2011 oilfield deal. Nigeria's claim concerns OPL 245, a prospecting license for a major offshore oil block purchased by Shell and ENI in 2011. Nigeria alleges Shell and ENI engaged in bribery and unlawful conspiracy. "This claim reflects the determination and ongoing efforts of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to recover the very significant sums lost to corruption and the unlawful activity of Shell and ENI in this transaction," said Tom Hibbert of RPC, acting as solicitors for the Nigerian government. The OPL 245 deal is already the subject of a prosecution in Italy, and an investigation in the Netherlands. Shell and ENI have both previously denied wrongdoing. A spokesperson for Shell said Thursday the company maintains the deal was a fully legal transaction. "Since this matter is before the Tribunal of Milan, it would not be appropriate for us to comment in detail on the new claims that have been made by the Federal Republic of Nigeria. However, based on our review of the Prosecutor of Milan's file and all of the information and facts available to us, we do not believe that there is a case to answer in this matter," the spokesperson said. ENI didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. Write to Adam Clark at adam.clark@dowjones.com (END) Dow Jones Newswires December 13, 2018 11:47 ET (16:47 GMT)

Thursday 13 December 2018 3:42pm FTSE dividend payments to hit record £94bn next year and yields boosted by market drop Share Callum Keown Reporter at City A.M. covering markets and exchanges, pharmaceuticals, science, [..] Show more Follow Callum Markets Nervous Amid Fears FTSE 100 dividend payments set to reach record high (Source: Getty) FTSE 100 dividend payments could hit record highs of £94bn next year while falling markets have increased yields, tempting investors and keeping the index stable amid political uncertainty. A difficult autumn for the markets with shares falling has seen the forecast dividend yield for the blue chip index rise to 4.9 per cent for 2019, according to AJ Bell. The investor platform’s analyst Russ Mould said the “tempting̶1; yields would provide support for UK stocks among the “maelstrom of political uncertainty.” Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey could offer the highest yield of 13.1 per cent, followed by coal and steel miner Evraz - 12.1 per cent - and Persimmon at 11.8 per cent. Barratt Developments could return yields of 9.6 per cent, as three housebuilders appeared in the top ten of AJ Bell’s analysis. Mould said: “Such a fat yield looks extremely tempting compared to the Bank of England’s 0.75 per cent base rate for cash and the 1.23 per cent yield on benchmark UK ten-year Gilt. “The presence of three house builders in the top ten is testimony to the size of their capital return programmes, but it may also hint at investor scepticism that the industry can maintain its current lofty levels of profitability without the benefit of Government assistance, via the Help to Buy and Lifetime ISA schemes.” But the research raised concerns over Standard Life Aberdeen, whose long streak of dividend increases could end next year and Vodafone, where the shareholder distribution may not grow for the first time in two decades. More than half of the £93.7bn paid out to shareholders will come from just ten firms, with Shell, HSBC, BP, and British American Tobacco accounting for 34 per cent of forecasted payments.

Published 09:36 December 13, 2018 Updated 09:36 December 13, 2018 US Assistant Secretary for Energy Resources tells reporters that Nord Stream-2 seeks to deepen EU’s dependency on Russian gas. By Kostis Geropoulos Energy & Russian Affairs Editor, New Europe + The United States urged Germany to drop its political support for Russian monopoly Gazprom’s Nord Stream-2 project and warned companies that are involved in the construction of the gas pipeline that they face the risk of sanctions unless they withdraw from the controversial project. US Assistant Secretary for Energy Resources Frank Fannon told a conference call with reporters on December 11 that Nord Stream-2 and an expanded Turkish Stream Pipeline, both of which bypass Ukraine, are designed to deepen Europe’s dependency on Russian gas and weaken the bloc’s security architecture. “Germany can certainly remove their political support from the project…of the gas directive. That policy has been languishing for over a year and a half. That would be a positive step in advancing energy security,” Fannon said, fresh from a trip to the Czech Republic, Croatia, and Hungary. Referring to the construction of the gas pipeline, which has an annual capacity of 55 billion cubic meters and connects Russia’s mainland pipelines to Germany through an underwater link in the Baltic Sea, Fannon said the US government has the ability to sanction Russia’s energy export pipelines under Section 232 of the Counter-Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act. “Firms that are working with the Russian energy export pipeline sector are engaging in a line of business that carries a sanctions risk. We continue to review potential sanctions actions and encourage governments or companies to contact us if they have questions about this process,” Fannon said while shying away from discussing details about future any possible sanctions. In an effort to lessen gas dependence on Russia, Fannon told reporters that the US would continue to support European energy diversification, including alternative sources of energy such as liquefied natural gas (LNG). The controversy surrounding the Nord Stream-2 project stems from the fact that most of Europe’s gas from Russia passes through Ukraine, which emerged as a budding European and NATO ally following Moscow’s illegal annexation of Crimea and its subsequent war in eastern Ukraine, caused the European Union and the United States to impose stiff targeted sanctions against the Kremlin. Russia’s pipelines through Ukraine are a major source of revenue for Kyiv and a key contributor to the Ukrainian state budget. Many in the West are concerned that by allowing Moscow to bypass Ukraine by diverting European gas supplies directly to Germany, Kyiv will be effectively cut off from a vitally important money maker that would further cripple its economy. The primary concern for most observers who oppose the continued development of Nordstream-2 makes Europe more dependent on Russian gas and pipelines at a time when the bloc’s own home-produced gas resources are diminishing. Responding to those concerns, Nord Stream’s EU representative, Sebastian Sass, told New Europe, “Politically motivated interventions against Nord Stream-2 would counteract the interests of European consumers and the EU’s energy security,” an assertion that is in line with certain EU-based proponents of the project that include German industrial giants such as BASF, as well as the consortium financing the project – Gazprom, Uniper and Wintershall of Germany, Austria’s OMV, Engie from France, and Royal Dutch Shell. These companies have long asserted that Nord Stream-2 is being implemented in full compliance with both international law and EU legislation, while each considers it essential to secure Russian gas as a way to compete with rival US companies, particularly when, in their eyes, American LNG supplies are far more expensive and logistically challenging than betting on gas piped by corporations with ties to the Kremlin.

Shell signs PPA with unsubsidised Italian solar projects By John Parnell Dec 11, 2018 11:33 AM GMT Share Source:Octopus/Fabrizio Guerri Source:Octopus/Fabrizio Guerri Oil major Shell has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) for a 70.5MW portfolio of unsubsidised solar projects in Italy. The five year deal with UK-based investor Octopus is for power from six projects currently under construction in Italy. Completion is expected in early 2019. Octopus has a total of ten projects in the works with a total capacity of 173MW. “This is a landmark deal for Octopus as we continue to drive value from our unsubsidised solar portfolio in Italy through innovative partnerships like this one,” said Matt Setchell, head of Octopus’ energy investment team. “Shell is at the forefront of the global energy transition and, like us, understands the importance of clean energy which we are seeing increase in value and importance to energy consumers in Europe and beyond.” In 2018 Shell has signed a variety of solar PPA contracts including a 15-year deal for 100MW in California and a five-year deal for power from the largest solar farm in the UK. “For us, Italy is a strategic market for power and we’ve been looking at ways to increase our power presence in the country,” said Fabio Ganzer, general manager power, Shell Energy Europe. “This deal is another addition to our growing renewable power portfolio and we look forward to partnering with Octopus, a key player in the market.”

Oil unlikely to go above $70 through 2020, says Moody’s Written by Allister Thomas - 11/12/2018 7:40 am Prices will "settle" thanks to recent production cuts from OPEC, according to Moody's Sign up to our daily newsletter Subscribe TodayPackages from £10 per monthPackages from £10 per month Brent crude is unlikely to go above $70 a barrel through 2020, according to US credit rating agency and financial analyst Moody’s. In a new investor report, the firm said prices will “settle” between $50 and $70. Moody’s said recent volatility, which has seen the price dip by around ten dollars in the last month, reflects concerns about a weakening global economy and higher production from Saudi Arabia and Russia. However the firm also stated the recent output cut of 1.2million barrels per day from Opec will “contribute to a more balanced global supply and demand” which will stabilise prices. Moody’s gave a “stable” outlook to the oil and gas sector due to increased focus on investments to boost production.
