Record Gas Sales in Jan (Norway)

Record Gas Sales in Jan (Norway)

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate said in a report that in January, 11.2 billion standard cubic metres of gas was sold from the Norwegian shelf. The figure is the highest of all time.

“One important factor for the record-high sales is that it is winter and there is a great demand for gas in the market – and the Norwegian shelf has a considerable delivery capacity,” says deputy director general Johannes Kjøde.

For instance, the Gjøa field in the North Sea will continue full force again following a period of reduced production due to problems with vibrations from the risers.

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate expects the gas sales from the Norwegian shelf to remain high in the future:

We expect gas sales to remain at about the same level as in 2010, or maybe higher. Last year the gas sale declined somewhat, without any clear reason for this in the market. We expected increase compared with 2011 is 5,4 billion Sm3. According to the NPD’s forecast, 2012 will be a new peak year”, says Kjøde.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
