Exxon Mobil Secures USD 1.5 Billion Financing for PNG LNG Project

Esso Highlands, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil and operator of the PNG LNG Project, said that financing arrangements to raise US$1.5 billion of supplemental project financing are complete, taking the total project financing facility to US$15.5 billion.

The financing was well supported, with the funds sourced from co- venturer and commercial bank lenders, and will be used to finance the debt component of the project cost increase announced in November 2012, a statement said.

The estimated cost of the LNG project remains unchanged, at US$19 billion, and the project remains on track to achieve first deliveries of LNG in the second half of 2014.

The PNG LNG project is a joint venture between Exxon Mobil, Oil Search , NPCP, Santos, JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration, Mineral Resources Development Company and Petromin PNG Holdings.

Floating LNG

Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
