UK: SSE, Shell Ink Gas Deal

SSE, Shell Ink Gas Deal

SSE and Shell Energy Europe have agreed a 10-year gas supply agreement of 790mcm (292 Mth) per annum, commencing in 2015.

This represents approximately 5% of SSE’s forecast typical annual gas requirements. The gas will be supplied as a firm delivery of 800,000 th/day, at a price linked to prevailing prices in the natural gas market.

The structure of the agreement fits well with the gas purchasing profile SSE needs to support its business contracts and generation requirements, and will therefore reduce its reliance on market purchases.

The agreement with Shell follows SSE’s 10-year agreement with Statoil in June 2011 and the acquisition from Hess Limited of North Sea natural gas assets in February 2011.

Alistair Phillips-Davies, Generation and Supply Director of SSE said:

Fuel supply contracts play a key part in helping us to meet our customers’ needs and contribute to the long-term stability of our energy portfolio. SSE has a good relationship with Shell and this long term agreement offers an excellent opportunity to cover a portion of SSE future gas needs with an attractive pricing structure and minimal risk.

This transaction secures a long term supply of gas for the UK market from a creditworthy, reliable and local producer. It is exactly what is required for a stable and confident market which supports investment in new gas-fired generation.”

Slavko Preocanin, President of Shell Energy Europe said; “We are delighted to have created this long-term solution for SSE. Shell’s broad energy supply portfolio and gas market expertise enable us to provide customers with real long-term solutions to their energy needs.”

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.
