Japan’s Marubeni Corporation and Jera teamed up with Squadron Energy, a unit of Australia’s Minderoo Group, to conduct a joint feasibility study for an LNG import terminal in New South Wales. 

The companies signed a memorandum of understanding to conduct the joint study which will focus on a potential to develop an LNG import terminal at an existing port in NSW.

The project would include chartering a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), construction of associated onshore and offshore facilities, and provision of gas to local customers in NSW.

According to a joint statement, Marubeni and Jera together with Squadron, will undertake the study, which will include initiation of gas marketing in NSW as well as make soundings regarding procurement of LNG through Jera’s global network.

Marubeni and Jera think that this project fits well with and will enhance the robust relationship between Australia and Japan, and will contribute to the availability of stable supplies of LNG not only in Australia and Japan but also in the Asia Pacific region.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
