India's LNG in imports have gone up by 9% in August
8But the price paid for it has gone up 80% for the month.
8Clearly, high prevailing LNG prices and the devaluation of the rupee have come as a double whammy
8Then again, projections are that the price of LNG is going spurt up by another $1.5/mmbtu
8In a price sensitive market such as India, what such prices will eventually do is stymie growth
8At these high prices, with the Rupee slated to depreciate further, it looks unlikely that offtake projections for 2018-19 will be fulfilled

Cranking up oil from India's aging oil fields is turning out to be a more difficult task than ever before, it looks like
8Indigenous crude oil and condensate production during August 2018 was lower by 3.7% compared to August 2017.
8PSC fields registered a marginal growth of 0.7% during the month over August 2017 while PSU companies registered de-growth of an alarming 5.4%.
8On cumulative basis de-growth of 3.3% was registered during April-August 2018 over the corresponding period of the previous year.
8That is bad news indeed, with no real upside going ahead.
8Understanding that there is an immediate need to incentive IOR/EOR programmes, the government has come up with a plan, but there is going to be a big lag between policy and action on the ground.

POL consumption data in India reflects the state of the Indian economy
8Petroleum product consumption registered a growth of 0.8% during August 2018.
8Consumption had risen faster in the past, indicating that higher prices are having an impact on consumption now.
8The story is better than last year though, with cumulative April-August consumption at 3.9% as compared to 1.9% for the same period in the previous year

The fact that a significant portion of coal-fired power plants are stranded assets is now a foregone conclusion
8But the government is fighting tooth and nail to ensure that they are not stranded. It has been found that a number of government interventions – in the form of public finance, subsidies and policy postponements are encouraging new capital investment in coal fired power, which might otherwise be considered uneconomic, during the project appraisal, preparation and construction stage.
8Is this attempt good or bad policy?
8Clearly, attempts to keep such stranded capacity alive will make the transition to a low carbon economy that much more difficult.
Click on Reports  for more Details
No study has been done in India yet on the links between government interventions and the drivers of asset stranding in the coal power sector.
8Further research is required on India’s coal power sector given the rapid pace of electrification, the electricity transition, and risks of high carbon lock-in.
8This could include modeling the removal of current interventions in the power sector (as has been undertaken in China) and of the interactions between different interventions – subsidies, public finance, and policy and regulatory interventions – and exploring some of the wider drivers of asset standing.
8Such work will support policy-makers to design and implement interventions – including fiscal reforms – that are needed for a deep and rapid transition to low-carbon energy.

 Comment: The gas lobby -- gas being a transition fuel from coal to renewable and, today, increasingly in play because of its capacity to go hand-in-hand with higher renewable energy injection into the grid -- could well fund such a report from an independent organization. A comparative analysis of sops granted will enhance the case for use of more gas in the Indian power sector. The gas business is big in India but unfortunately deeply divided. And despite massive resources at their disposal, spending on changing policy perceptions is poor. Lobbyists and public relation officers in big companies like BP and RIL are poorly informed, lack initiative and are eventually reduced to pushing files in Shastri Bhavan. No one looks at the big picture. Details

Once IMO 2020 low sulphur regulations kick in, where will the high sulphur fuel oil (HSFO) go?
8Clearly, a lot of it is still going to be produced in India and will be in excess
8Excess HSFO demand only exists in regions with relaxed environmental standards where it can compete with LNG or coal.
8At the limit, the delivered price of HSFO to such regions should find an initial floor around the price of LNG, and then coal in terms of calorific value. HSFO is already pricing below LNG in the forward market but has $180/MT to go to reach a floor versus the coal-equivalent price in Asia.

Orders are coming in the offshore equipment and services market but that does not mean rates are going to go up soon
The following is the synopsis:
8Floaters: Contractors have retired more than 30% of the total floater fleet since the downturn started in late 2014. The expectation is that the retirement trend will continue as the industry is still looking to cut costs.
8Jackup rig market: A rate increase is unlikely in the near future unless the fleet retirement rate goes up
8Subsea and field development markets: Christmas trees orders have more than doubled but offshore equipment installation will take place only from 2019 onwards. This implies that fleet utilisation across the subsea segment is likely to remain subdued at least through 2018 and into 2019. However, the backlog for the largest subsea EPC contractors improved slightly in 2017 and are showing further improvement through 2018.

The CNG supplier is claiming that its supplies will be significantly cheaper than LNG
8The company has put together a new CNG ship whose storage system is made up of closed packed high strength steel pipes in which CNG is stored at near ambient temperatures, avoiding complicated cooling and liquid-push systems that are now available in normal CNG ships
8What is more the ship and containment system can be fully constructed in a conventional shipyard
8India is the target country as of now given its large CNG use
8Market research done by the company claims that delivered CNG will be "very cost competitive" with current delivered LNG cargoes

Looks like the much talked about supply glut in the LNG industry, that was meant to kick in in 2018, is not really to be seen anywhere around.
8Every cargo seems to be finding a market.
8Winter demand is expected to be robust enough, despite higher supplier of gas through transnational pipelines to China, to keep prices high.
8There is perhaps a slight period of uncertainty between the winter of 2018 and the summer of 2021, when new capacities come on stream, but the market will tighten considerably from 2021 onwards, just when new gas from India's KG Basin begins to come in.
8High LNG prices is bad news for India, as it is a highly price sensitive market. Affordability in India is in the range of $5-7/mmbtu and not in the $9-11/mmbtu range at which LNG prices are ruling.
8As prices stay high, gas marketing is where the challenge is going to be, both for domestic gas marketed by KG Basin suppliers and new LNG terminals which are coming up

Did you know that the waste cold from India’s projected LNG imports in 2022 could fuel over 5 lakh liquid air refrigeration units?
8A typical LNG terminal re-gasifying 7,100 tons of LNG/day can produce enough liquid nitrogen to provide the cooling for almost 1,100 chilled and frozen refrigerated trucks operating around the clock; and peak time cooling (three hours a day) for 7.5 million cubic meters of frozen space
8Then again, new technology is coming in that use liquid air or liquid nitrogen to deliver zero-emission power and cooling. Such engine and cooling systems in cold chain transport can be highly efficient with zero polluting emissions. This technology will reduce fuel costs (refrigeration alone consumes as much as 20% of truck’s fuel) dramatically for refrigerated trucks.
8New and exciting cooling technologies -- such as the Magnetic Refrigeration System that run on water-based coolants-- are also in the offing, opening up this space for tech start-ups and entrepreneurs to step in

Do not rule out nuclear power yet from the new low-cost energy paradigm.
8A new breed of small (less than 300 MW) modular nuclear plants are being readied in global laboratories, where the power plant is centrally built and shipped for installation anywhere in the world.
8The levelized cost of electricity from these plants are competitive to cost of renewable or gas-based power.
8What is more, these nuclear plants can be used for centralized cooling and thermal desalination plants
8The residual heat is usable for a variety of industrial applications, including the production of glass, plastics, steel, synthetic fuels, and chemicals.

8It will lay the framework for further Enhanced Oil Recovery (EPR) programmes in these fields
8A total of 450 SKM of data is to be processed in the D-1 area and another 750 SKM in the Neelam-Heera area
8Depending upon the success of this programme, ONGC demand for high full azimuth quality data is expected to rise because of the need to characterize the company's ageing offshore reservoir better, eventually to produce more oil out of existing reservoirs.

As we move closer to the November 5th re-imposition of sanctions against Iran, the impact is starting to become more noticeable for the tanker market.
8The IEA reported this week that Iranian crude production had fallen by 150,000 b/d to 3.63 million b/d in August, the lowest since July 2016.
8Ship tracking data suggests that exports have fallen further, by 400,000-500,000 b/d to around 2.4 million b/d.
8So, the question really is, by how much and how quickly will Iranian production fall and who is going to replace those lost barrels?
8Quite simply, if the lost Iranian barrels are compensated by supplies from elsewhere, there will be more demand for the international tanker fleet, as the Iranian fleet will not be able to compete for these cargoes. Click on Report  for more. Details

Gas based power plants are expecting a fillip for an increasing need for peaking power now that injection of renewable power into the grid is going up
8Coal-based power plants will never be able to compete in ramp-up speed with gas-based power plants
8But new technology is coming in that will make coal-based power plants more amenable to flexible generation.
8Another point to note is that coal-based power plant technology is making some rapid progress.
8The technology is moving beyond supercritical from ultra super critical to advanced ultra supercritical. From here on, the movement is towards Integrated Coal Gasification Combined Cycle and eventually to Integrated Coal Gasification Fuel Cell Combined Cycle. Some pilot plants are in the offing already.

Fresh data has been brought into play to project different sources of power in India's energy matrix in 2020, 2030, 2040 and 2050 keeping the objective of keeping climate change limited to two degree centigrade.
8The interesting point to note is that gas based power, with or without CCS, contribute the biggest share to energy generation than solar and wind.
8From today's perspective, when most gas-based power plants do not do well under the Merit Order Dispatch system, that fact that gas based units will play such an important role in the future seems a little incongruous.

Behind every policy decision in the oil & gas sector, there is always a lot of backroom maneuvering.

8The new policy framework envisages a 5% incremental recovery of crude and 3% for gas
8ONGC's rising EOR costs, up to a point where future investments were not providing an adequate rate of return, is one of the reasons why the government expedited a decision on the subject.
8Besides ONGC, Vedanta stands to gain from the policy, given that its Barmer fields have a lot of EOR activity

There is no doubt a revival in the offing in the E&P investment cycle, but where exactly are we in it now?
8Capex budgets worldwide have been cut substantially since the onset of the 2014 oil price collapse.
8Capex budgets for 2015 and 2016 declined by an average of about 25% each year across our sample of super oil majors, and even 2017 saw around 10% decline in capex eventually, though we were initially expecting 2017 capex to remain flat.
8In 2018, projections from global oil majors point to only minor increases in capex – low single-digit growth, which is not exciting.
8All the deferrals will mean that more than 3mmbpd of supply that was supposed to come onstream by 2020 will now only come in the years after that.
8But does the capex story get better from here, or doesn't it?
Click on Reports  for more Details
The whole lack of capex story eventually rolls on to impact the price of crude
8So, as Wood Mackenzie claims $1 trillion in capex from 2015 to 2020 has been taken out of the system, surely crude prices must go up
8Additional barrels of oil will come out of non-producing assets with a higher breakeven point
8But then why is the crude price slated to be lower next year than this year?

The technologies needed to convert renewable energy to hydrogen are now ready and cost compatible, according to latest findings.
8A target cost of USD 5–6/kg can already be achieved today by connecting an electrolyzer to the electricity grid (with 2017 Danish electricity prices that include all grid fees, levies and taxes) and prices are expected to fall further.
8A lot of fresh data has come in to establish the viability of renewable to hydrogen generation.
8The focus is now to move to large-scale applications that are able to rapidly generate economies of scale, with minimal infrastructure requirements, and in sectors where hydrogen from renewables stands out as the best-performing option for meeting climate targets.
8The target areas are large industries (refineries, chemicals facilities, methanol production) and heavy-duty transport (large fleets of hydrogen buses, trucks, trains on non-electrified lines, maritime, etc.).
8The hydrogen price curves are coming down more rapidly than before.

We are proud to claim, immodestly perhaps, that we have developed one of the India's most sophisticated project monitoring softwares. It comes integrated with a CRM package.
8We capture hundreds of parameters around a project in the software.
8The software is also capable of generating hundreds of pages of detailed reports from its MSQL database, giving you dozens of ways to slice up the information.
8At the backend, we only employ engineers to feed in primary data from our contacts around the country.
8Importantly, it is not a static but a dynamic software that moves with a project, giving you scores of updates until the project is commissioned.
8The software has been built to forecast future project movements and business opportunities based on existing progress parameters.
8For example, in the KG-DWN-98/2 block, we know exactly how far the project has progressed and we can estimate project activities, from one month to a year and for a longer period as the project moves beyond the selection of consultants.
8Regular interactions with key owner contacts, potential consultants as well as equipment and service providers allow us to bring you updates as and when any of the many parameters we monitor changes. The change can happen in a week or in a few months. An alert will go to you as and when changes happen.  An update can be a minor one like the postponement of an RFQ date or a major change that involves changes in multiple project sensitive parameters.
8We spend the bulk of our time providing you verified contacts associated with a project -- at the level of the owner or the contractor or sub contractor -- along with their telephone numbers.
8Our archiving system allows you to keep track of how the project has moved over time. Every change is captured in our archives.
8The scale of our ambition is vast and so we are still filling in parts of our software. We now have updates on select high-value petroleum projects. As for fertilizer projects, our other area of specialization, we have captured the full gamut of activity around all projects.
8A business development executive usually exudes confidence in his coverage of his area of operation but he will be surprised with what the software can throw up.
8A live analyst will always be there to support you. You just have to pick up the phone and call.
