Commenting on the results, Chairman and CEO Christophe de Margerie said: “With adjusted net income of 2.7 billion euros this quarter, the Group demonstrated its strong resilience in the Upstream desp ite lower hydrocarbon prices.

“The restart of production at Elgin/Franklin in the UK and the first cargo from Angola LNG were not able events of the quarter.

“Regarding our Upstream projects, the launch of the Egina deep – offshore project and the progress on Yamal LNG illustrate our ability to prepare for the future in a sustainable manner by developing competitive and diverse projects.

“In this way, the Group expects to benefit from an extended series of start – ups over the next several years.

“Th e Downstream reaped the initial benefits of the restructuring program even though further changes are still necessary to strengthen our position.

“The modernization of the Antwerp platform announced this quarter is yet another step in this program and demonstrates again that our economic performance is inextricably linked with our social and environmental commitments.”

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.
