Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG) has announced the resumption of gas sales to power utility Eneo Cameroon for the Logbaba power station, and government approval of its acquisition of the Matanda Block. The news has come as a significant boost for Aim-listed VOG, which was hard hit when Eneo failed to renew its supply contract a year ago, and for Douala consumers that have experienced power cuts. Eneo’s cash flow has suffered from the government’s unwillingness to pay its bills, but while VOG said it was confident the problem was temporary, the Eneo supply represented an estimated 53% of Logbaba gas sales revenues for 2017.

Subscriber

Eni and BP have started production from the Deka project in the Temsah concession in the Nile Delta. Eni said on 21 August that the joint venture had brought on stream the Denise South 6 well, at a rate of 1.8mcm/d of gas, and 800 b/d of condensates. Denise South 6 is the first development well of the project, and located some 65km north of Port Said, in 100 metres water depth. The Deka project envisages the development of gas discoveries through the drilling of five subsea wells

Bosch Projects has given South Africa’s Barloworld Power a contract to supply equipment for a 4MW biogas-to-power project in Bronkhorspruit, 78km north-east of Boksburg. The clean electricity produced by the project will be used for an automotive plant in Rosslyn, Pretoria. The Bronkhorspruit Biogas Power Plant Pty Ltd is an independent power producer formed by Bio2Watt, which has a contract to purchase waste from the Beefcor cattle farm. About 40,000 t/yr of cattle manure and a further 20,000 t/yr of mixed organic waste will be fed into two anaerobic digesters that will produce the biogas feedstock for a combined heat and power application using Caterpillar internal combustion gas generator sets.

Nigeria: Onshore find for Eni

Free

Eni affiliate NAOC has discovered 1tcf of gas and 60m barrels of associated condensate in the deeper sequences of the Obiafu-Obrikom fields in OML 61, onshore in the Niger Delta. The Obiafu-41 Deep well reached a total depth of 4,374 metres and encountered more than 130 metres of Oligocene-age hydrocarbon-bearing sands. The well can deliver more than 10mcf/d of gas and 3,000 b/d of condensates, and will immediately be put on stream to increase NAOC’s gas production. The discovery has further potential that will be assessed with the next appraisal campaign, Eni said.

Angola: ALNG at 50 percent capacity

Subscriber

Chevron says the Angola Liquefied Natural Gas (ALNG) plant is running at around 50 percent capacity and has shipped three LNG and two liquefied petroleum gas cargoes so far this year. Chevron said the variable composition of the plant’s associated gas supply had affected its initial performance. The company said in its annual report that it expected the plant to remain at about 50% capacity until permanent modifications could be completed in 2015, allowing ALNG to consistently produce at its full capacity of 180,000 boe/d.

Ahead of becoming a gas exporter, and with increasing western and multilateral funds being targeted on the strategically sensitive Sahel region, Mauritania is attracting increasing business interest. The World Bank Group (WBG) has been advising Senegal and Mauritania on the transition to gas production and has made new commitments to social and economic developments and private sector growth. Oil major BP has bought into the Grand Tortue/Ahmeyim gasfield complex on the Mauritania-Senegal maritime border, in partnership with Kosmos Energy.

Ophir Energy has announced a successful drill stem test (DST) on the Fortuna-2 well on Block R. The Fortuna field is expected to form the first phase of a planned floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) development. The DST achieved a sustained flow rate of 60mcf/d with a drawdown of less than 20psi at the reservoir. However this rate was surface equipment constrained, and based on the expected operating conditions of the FLNG facility, Ophir estimates it could deliver 180mcf/d via the 5” drill pipe used for the DST.

Starenergie signs new Songon agreement

Subscriber

Ivorian power developer Starenergie 2073 has signed an agreement valued at CFA28bn ($46m) with Vinci Energies Côte d’Ivoire and Cegelec Maroc for associated infrastructure for the 372MW Songon thermal power plant. The Ivorian firm signed an agreement in August 2016 with China Energy Engineering Corporation to build the gas-fired plant. Starenergie says US developer Endeavor Energy, which signed a joint development agreement (JDA) for the scheme in 2015, is no longer a partner on the project. Endeavor said in October 2016 that it had invested several million dollars in the project’s development and was committed to enforcing its rights under the JDA.
