The RIL-Saudi Aramco deal benefits both companies in a big way. It allows Saudi Armaco to corner 40% of RIL's crude (at 500 kb/d) reqirement while acquiring only a 20% stake in RIL. For the latter, these additional supplies would also help offset the decline in procurement from other heavy sour producers, namely Iran and Venezuela. RIL in turn aims to increase its oil-to-chemicals ratio to more than 70% by gradually eliminating all road transportation fuels (gasoline, diesel) from Jamnagar’s refinery product slate.
8While the deal is a win-win one for both companies, there is now speculation over whether Saudi Aramco will  hang on to the agreement with Indian public sector companies for a new 1.2 bbb/day refinery, with a prestigious Saudi publication now claiming that a delay in land acquisition and increase in costs may have promoted Saudi Aramco to look at "another alternative".
Comment: The question then is: If a suitable alternative has been found, will Saudi Arabia abandon its commitment to the new refinery? Does the kingdom under pressure from multiple directions, have the stomach for another big equity investment in India, now that the captive supply deal with RIL will enable it to become the biggest supplier of crude to India?

Through a $2.5 billion equity deal last Friday in return for a lifetime offtake of 5 msmcmd of LNG from Tellurian's 16.6 MMTPA LNG terminal in the US, Petronet LNG Ltd (PLL) has suddenly transformed itself from a sleepy and safe toll player in the Indian regasification business into a global risk taker.
8Based on 5 million mt/year offtake, Petronet would be responsible for underwriting $5 billion of Tellurian's total project debt in the Driftwood LNG plant. That is a big exposure by any yardstick. In that sense, PLL's exposure to the project is higher than that of the promoters, as the latter have undertaken to offtake only 4 MMTPA of LNG.
8The equity investment against a life time of LNG offtake implies that the risk is front ended, and borne by the investor cum buyer. So far, only Total, with a balance sheet many times larger than PLL, has bought into the terminal with an offtake of 1 MMTPA, a fifth of what PLL is now committed to.
8A host of traders, including Vitol, has been offered similar deals but they are yet to make up their minds.
8Currently, gas-indexed LNG is far cheaper than oil indexed LNG that PLL processes via long term contacts in its LNG terminals but that may not always be the case. If peak oil happens in 2022 as predicted by some, the price of crude may fall far enough to make oil indexed LNG cheaper from countries such as Qatar in relation to LNG from the US, thereby forcing PLL to scout the global markets to sell its committed offtake in the years ahead, unless of course PLL can work out a back to back arrangement with Indian offtakers for Tellurain LNG in exactly the same terms and conditions as was finalized last Saturday, something that will be difficult to push through to price sensitive Indian clients.
8Willy nilly, PLL has to grow up quickly and acquire the depth and punch needed for an international trader to survive in the LNG business.

An industry body, hit by the ongoing slump, has called for the renegotiation of long term LNG contracts with Qatar.
8Qatari LNG is around 57% more expensive than "current gas prices", the body has claimed.
Comment: It is time for stakeholders to start looking at renegotiation. For this slump is not going to go out any time soon. Spot prices are expected to stay low right up to 2021. And with crude prices unlikely to fall during this period to levels lower than what prevails now, long term LNG prices, indexed to oil, are not likely to fall fast enough to  plug the spot vs. contract price differential. So the gap will stay and the clamor from units on long term gas supply contracts for lower prices is likely to get more strident over time.

The LSTK contracts for the coal-gasificaition-cum-petcoke syngas plant coupled with an ammonia-urea complex have finally been signed with Chinese EPC contractor Wuhan Engineering Co Ltd.
8The cost of the project is massive Rs 13,277 crore.
8This is the contract largest award to a single Chinese company, and signals a thaw in the relationship between the two countries, after there was a cooling off soon after Section 370 relating to J&K was abrogated.
8The cost of urea is going to be more than Rs 30,000 crore per tonne, about Rs 5000 more than average cost of manufacturing or importing urea into India. The extra subsidy bill will be footed by the government of India under the urea retention pricing system.
8L&T had contested the award of the ammonia-urea plant to Wuhan but that was set aside.
Comment: The signaling is unambiguous. The decks are being cleared for the meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in October. This also sends an unwritten signal to the oil & gas industry, particularly public sector companies that Chinese companies can do business in India. The point to note is that India needs good EPC companies in the oil & gas space. Except for a handful of domestic EPC players, and a few multinationals, this space can be captured by Chinese players who have now acquired both depth and experience.

8And that can only happen if we reopen the long term contracts which are today keeping Indian prices high
8Strong vested interests, such as the fact that domestic producers of gas, such as RIL, are trying to sew up gas supply contracts at rates equal to prevailing long term LNG conracts and strong bilateral relationships with countries such as Qatar may prevent us from reopening such contracts, but that will not be in India's long term interest

Any kind of global model that looks at decarburization of the transportation sector will end up with a 2030 date for a ban on conventional cars.

8If structural changes are at the root of the automobile demand slowdown, oil companies may have to redraw some their refinery expansion plans.

The latest report by DNV-GL that predicts peak oil by 2022 may knock the bottom out of the Indian E&P market and stop companies from looking at acreages being offered by India under a liberalized regime. Operators who have garnered acerages under DSF and OALP rounds may want to go slow if they are certain that the bottom is going to give way around the time they begin to produce oil and gas.
8The prediction is that after oil, peak gas will happen 10 years later, around 2033, but production thereafter will not decline but remain constant right up to 2050. This will mean that Indian E&P majors may stop looking at major offshore gas investments five years from now, as most fields have 10 to 15-year production profiles, and these can stretch to a point when demand begins to peak and prices become unremunerative, thereby pushing NPVs to negative territory.
8All of this does not mean that investments will not happen in the oil & gas sector, as plans have to be put in place to maintain output in declining fields or new fields have to be put to production to take on the slack.
8There is also another counter argument: Why should India, which has relatively poor hydrocarbon prospectivity, look for oil & gas when it can easily import it cheaply once prices drop from 2022 onwards? Let low cost global producers pull out the oil and India will buy it off them, the argument will go. 
8As long as cost of output in India is below the import parity price, both gas and oil production will continue, but the equation can tilt the wrong way in as little as five years from now.

All the buzz about the boom in the Floating Storage Regasification Unit market, particularly in India, seems to be more hype than real.
8As of now, there is just one FSRU with a commitment to be leased out to India, and the vessel is currently being used as an LNG tanker at a lower day rate until it is ready for deployment as an FSRU.
8A new tanker being ordered as a new built by an operator but its capacity is not known.
8The point to note is that the market for FSRUs saw a big boost when  major leasing companies decided to invest in new vessels on a prospective basis. Most of these prospects did not materialise and the majority of the additional vessels have been assigned to operating as LNG carriers.
8This has resulted in ten of the 34 vessels now operating as tankers – a significant 30 per cent of the fleet.
8This must be a disappointment for the leasing companies as the day rates for tanker services are normally much lower, at typically $80,000/day, than for import terminal operation at typically $120,000/day.

Despite the slow down in the global FSRU market, there is clear demand in India for small-sized FSRUs as many coastal areas are ill-served by pipeline networks.
8In fact, India can be the ripe palce for experimentation with small FSRUs, with low overheads
8There is one example of innovative jetty-less transfer for smaller FSRUs, which is 50% cheaper than putting up a jetty, and can be installed six times faster
8FSRUs can be as small as 0.50 mmtpa or even less. These can be used for captive supply, or for special economic zones away from pipeline networks. Their cost economics can possibly be more favorable than those that supply gas through land-based pipelines.

One concept that has garnered significant attention across the oil and gas industry in recent years is the “digital twin.”
8However, there remains a great deal of confusion about what a digital twin is, and how it can be harnessed to add value to operations and facilities.
8Some organizations use digital twin as a synonym for their 3D plant models, others, for their predictive maintenance or simulation models.
8The bottom line is that the digital twin is all of these and more, and if operators don’t look at it holistically, they are likely to miss out on some of the benefits.
8But Indian operators must now learn to ask for a digital twin as a requirement to their engineering partners. This is now starting to happen at the equipment level, but operators should require the same for the facility as a whole. Ultimately, if the twin is deployed as a standard deliverable during project execution, companies will recover more than the full investment through reduced risk and shorter project cycle times.
