  1. Lots of news on FLNG lately.

    Aug 13 (LNGJ) - Petrobras signed agreements with Sete Brasil, Odebrecht and Etesco for the chartering and operation of nine drilling vessels to be constructed in Brazil. The rigs when built will be chartered to Petrobras for 15 years from 2016. They will focus on drilling in the pre-salt wells at the Santos Basin, where Floating LNG production projects are planned.

    Excelerate Energy has received long-term authorization from the US Department of Energy to export LNG from its Floating LNG liquefaction facility being developed at Lavaca Bay offshore Texas.


    Guar beans are so popular with fraccers the price has shot up.The search for a synthetic bean is on.

    A major ingredient in fracking fluid is India’s guar bean. However, because of the popularity of fracking, the guar bean is now in short supply, causing a run-up in bean prices, according to Reuters.

    Houston-based Baker Hughes (NYSE: BHI) and Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) have both developed their own synthetic version of the bean in their labs as a way to help companies hold down drilling costs.

  2. Oh Oh,this in the leadup to Woodsides decision on Browse.

    Aug 14 (LNGJ) - The redirecting of LNG away from Europe towards Asia is expected to rise over the next two years, analysts said. European deliveries were down more than 30 percent in the first half of 2012 as cargoes were diverted and re-exported. LNG available for Europe could fall from current levels of 46 million tonnes per annum to around 20 MTPA in the next two to three years before returning to current levels as new Australian and US output begins to arrive in Asia.

    Yeah,might go back up.But round about then the oil glut will be becoming a reality.

    And how would you be in amongst this nightmare:

    The Arrow LNG project, the fourth major coal-seam-gas-to-LNG venture in Australia and involving Royal Dutch Shell and PetroChina, is planning up
    to 7,000 new CSG wells in a staged development over the life of the project.

    A vision of Hell.

  3. Barnett is still obsessed with a mad rush to build a giant gas plant on JPP.
    He won't listen to anyone else,left or right,he is the only one to have a say!
    Definately cuckoo.

    "Because there is still a lot of gas in the Carnarvon Basin already committed to the existing infrastructure on the Dampier Peninsula."

    He thanked the labour party,twice,during his speech the other day,instead of liberal,now he is calling the Browse basin the Carnarvon basin.
    He has lost it.


    He doesn't seem too worried about this.

    INVESTORS appear to have given up hope that BHP Billiton will approve its $20 billion outer-harbour project at Port Hedland.


    Chevron are ready to expand Gorgon.

    http://www.rigzone.com/news/oil_gas/a/119990/Chevron_Unlikely_to_Hedge_Forex_Risk_on_Gorgon_LNG_Project?rss=true

    A string of gas discoveries offshore Western Australia state over the past two years, including the successful Pontus-1 well announced late July, has boosted confidence that Chevron can expand the Gorgon project beyond its initial annual output capacity of 15.6 million metric tons of LNG by adding a fourth processing unit.


    Invented by Aussies,but the oil and gas gods don't like it.

    Much of the solar technology in the world today was invented in Australia by Australians. We have not as a county capitalised on that opportunity.

    AS FOR BARNETT,IF YOU READ THE ARTICLE,BEING WORRIED ABOUT LITTLE GAS FIELDS OFF THE NW NOT BEING DEVELOPED,WELL GORGON AND WHEATSTONE ETC ARE TAKING GAS FROM OFF THE NW,AND LITTLE STRANDED FIELDS ARE GREAT FOR FLNG.
    WHY MUST WE TAKE EVERYTHING AND SHIP IT OUT?
    BIGGER THAN QUATAR - BUT NO DOMESTIC GAS FOR US.

    TIME TO SEND BARNETT TO THE FUNNY FARM.
