Shell in Talks to Join Shtokman Project, Russia

Shell is in talks to join Russia’s Shtokman project, Reuters reported, citing unnamed sources.

Talks regarding Shell’s participation in Shtokman are under way … There are different project configurations under discussion now but Gazprom will keep a 51 percent stake,” a source close to the Shtokman consortium told Reuters.

Earlier this week Total of France said it is keeping its 25% stake in Shtokman project after Russia’s Gazprom said that it would review the composition of the consortium to develop the Shtokman offshore gas field.

Shtokman Development AG is a joint project created by three industry leaders — Gazprom (51%), Total (25%) and Statoil (24%).

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.
