The global LNG Market is approaching a period of change brought on by recent significant developments within the O&G industry. These developments include Shale Gas, East Africa Gas, revised positions on nuclear power and the changing dynamics between the traditional and new global LNG Supply and Demand points as markets mature. 

This panel session will be presented by leading International Oil Companies, National Oil Companies and Independent  Energy Associations; and shall address the current and future trajectory of the Global LNG Supply and Demand  balance while factoring in the recent major industry developments; and the intrinsic relationship the APAC region will continue to have on this complex network.

The following key topics (not limited to) will be addressed within the panel session by the respective speakers with key reference and relevance to the APAC’s envelopment:

  • Current and future roles of the traditional high consumer countries such as United States of America, Japan, Korea and China
  • Introduction of new high consumer countries  such as Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore and the effect these key APAC countries will have on global supply and demand chain
  • Impact India will have on the consumer chain as the nation looks to offset rapidly declining production rates; turning to importation of LNG for the solution
  • Current and future roles of traditional supply countries such as Qatar, Egypt, Australia and West Africa
  • Introduction of new high supply countries such as Canada, Mozambique and Tanzania and the role APAC is expected to play in the consumption of this new quota of LNG
  • Impact of the economic monetisation of Shale Gas on Global LNG consumer chain
  • Nuclear power’s role on the Global LNG consumer chain as anti-nuclear policies are reviewed and amended
  • Impact of these supply and demand characteristics will have on future energy prices and incumbent regional pricing structures

Deepwater rigs have reached a culmination of traditional capabilities with the “6th generation”. Very large storage volumes, ample power, and enormous load bearing capability. However, the drilling process, aside from pipe handling automation, has essentially remained the same. Certain new technologies that could be game changers for deepwater drilling, as they address many of the current limitations of deepwater drilling, such as the followings have been largely left out:

  • Riser Gas Handling
  • Managed Pressure Drilling / Continuous Circulation Systems
  • Dual Gradient Drilling capabilities
  • Instrumentation of drillstring, BOP, and riser for high speed real time data

Also, significant challenges have arisen for the current cost structure of deepwater drilling operations particularly in the Asia Pacific area, where lack of pipeline infrastructure similar to the GoM precludes even exploration drilling on many smaller prospects because of development cost.

Some innovations to reduce the cost of deepwater drilling which are mainly time related cost need to be addressed (and the associated need for flat time reduction):

  • Reduction of Diesel consumption / alternative fuels
  • BOP innovations reducing maintenance cost while improving safety
  • All non-drilling activities done offline
  • Enhancing rig capabilities to include early production / extended well test capabilities

The question remains how these objectives can be achieved, given the current paradigm of rig construction, with drilling contractor preferring turnkey proven designs from the yards, which often start to be modified before they even drill their first well. Operator involvement in the design process, with certain exceptions, also seems to be less than desirable. The location of the majority of rig fabrication yards in the Asia Pacific region predestines Offshore Asia for this discussion.

The viewpoints of operators, drilling contractors, rig designers & fabrication yards are desired to be heard on this panel, with a lot of audience interaction selecting options presented by the panelists.

Inflation in services cost and materials have outpaced the rise of the oil price consistently in the recent period. This development led to delay or cancellation of high cost activities, especially in deepwater and marginal fields. This panel will bring together operators and service companies to discuss how a new paradigm of cooperation and alignment can be found to render such high cost projects economic again. Breakthrough efficiency could be achieved if operator and service company objectives were consistently aligned for the overall success of the project.

This panel will showcase successful industry technology cooperation organisations from around the world: the level of cost and resources required to advance technology in offshore E&P is, more often than not, prohibitively high. Hence, many breakthroughs in offshore technology are the result of voluntary cooperation by operators and vendors/service companies. Under this cooperative model, smart vendors/service companies rely on operators not just for additional resources, but principally for commitment to field trial and later to implement the newly developed technology. At the same time, the operator can identify technology gaps, and provide guidance on the suitability and practicability of the developed technologies.

Increasingly, technology leadership is becoming the decisive factor in the competition for access to offshore resources. The basic fact that a team can achieve more than individual players alone is also valid for meeting the needs for highly complex technology in the more and more difficult offshore areas the industry operates in.

In addition, such jointly developed technologies often have less hurdles to overcome in gaining acceptance by the regulator, as the cooperation of several knowledgeable parties enhances the trust in the new technology. Common hardware and software interfaces can be another positive effect. Benefits of this winning combination also include lower cost and risk for individual participants and access to a larger group of subject matter experts. 

Asia Pacific operators have not yet embraced such cooperation models as frequently as American or European players, hence this panel is of high relevance and could move the region towards more technology cooperation and evolution of a synergistic relationship with other members of the oil community for mutual benefit.

Developing Asian countries (e.g. India, China, etc.) are going to be the nucleus of growth in the next couple of decades. As these countries industrialise, they will inevitably go through an energy-intensive phase, leading to a significant increase in the (global) demand for energy. Although alternative energy sources are becoming more available, fossil fuel will continue to be the dominant component of the overall energy-mix. The continued heavy use of fossil fuel will also result in significant stress on the environment.

In many countries in Asia, the hydrocarbon basin are relatively matured and the days of easy oil and gas are gone, hence, there is a need to get most out of existing oil and gas fields via IOR (Improved Oil Recovery)/EOR (Enhanced Oil Recovery)/EGR (Enhanced Gas Recovery). At the same time, implementing these technologies in a (Brownfield) offshore environment are CAPEX intensive. Meanwhile, many Asian countries are also facing significant capabilities and technologies gap. This will require companies with ‘deep pockets’ and a large capabilities pool and technologies base to help to materialise these opportunities.

Consequently, Asian's energy policy will need to be able to attract investments in high-end IOR/EOR/EGR technologies and capabilities, as well as to balance the need to increase the investment in oil and gas development vs. the pressure on the environment.

This panel will feature NOC and IOC organisations as well as service companies and are expected to touch on the above dilemma and discuss possible steps which can be taken.

The panel will address key issues such as:

  • Potential measures like fiscal incentives such as lower pita, financial incentives (ITA), partnerships, alliances, etc. to make investments more attractive
  • Willingness to take higher risks on IOR/EOR/EGR projects compared to conventional projects and potential risk-sharing between parties to execute these projects
  • Increased R&D investment required in Asian countries, similar to what Western countries are spending
  • Collaboration between countries to mature IOR/EOR/EGR technologies with cross-border sharing

Asia is home to the fastest growing natural gas market. As it continues to expand its economy and population, the demand for energy particularly natural gas will grow in tandem which will be significant as evident from the historical growth of 34.2 bcf pa in 2010 to 37.1 bcf pa in 2011.

While part of this growth will be filled by LNG import which is currently priced at premium, alternative sources of natural gas such as marginal gas fields is being considered. On the back of strong demand and high gas price environment in Asia, development of marginal gas fields and off shore gas is getting renewed interests by host countries and oil companies.

A panel of experts will discuss the importance of marginal gas fields as source of natural gas supply to Asian countries, share their perspectives on how the fields can contribute to address gas supply challenges, effective approach and technologies to develop them, as well as incentives and cooperation needed to promote a viable development of marginal gas fields.

Southeast Asia has been the birthplace of surface BOP exploration drilling from shallow to ultra-deepwater, via Unocal's low-cost saturation exploration S-X drilling technology. Almost 2000 wells have been drilled safely and successfully over about one decade, resulting in several significant discoveries, mainly in Indonesia.

Other operators have tried the technology in the region and elsewhere, generally with similar savings and success. The same drivers that existed for Unocal’s S-X drilling technology are still there in the region, with the milder metocean conditions of Southeast Asia being ideally suited for this technology with dramatic cost saving potential. This panel will look at the future of this technology in the region taking into account the post-Macondo world, new technical developments, and following up on a panel held at OTC Houston 2010. This panel is highly relevant given the current cost structure of deepwater drilling operations in the region.

The offshore oil and gas industry has a history of developing new technologies, enabling developments in ever-more challenging conditions. Yet the age of easy oil is over. Continued advances in deepwater platform design, enhanced oil recovery technology and subsea equipment – as well as changing perceptions of ALARP design practices – are needed to assure safe and cost-effective development. Barriers to technology implementation must be overcome to advance a range of offshore projects: from life extensions of aging fixed platforms, to EOR and casing drilling, to modern concepts such as Floating LNG and long distance multi-phase subsea tiebacks.

A significant portion of the new energy supply needed to meet the growing energy demand in the Asia Pacific region will come from frontier offshore developments now taking place here. Yet many barriers to developing and implementing new technologies still exist. This panel will assess and comment on barriers to implementation of new technologies. Barriers include: cost and risk in proving new innovation in the frontier offshore context, industry interdependence barriers, role barriers, governmental and regulatory barriers, intellectual property protection (or lack of protection) barriers.

In order to move up the value chain and compete in a more open and increasingly competitive global economy, the effects of such barriers on regional organisations needs to be assessed and overcome.

Technology deployment issues to address include a number of practice differences between Euro-American regions and Asia Pacific. Structural differences include: maturity of industry collaboration, industry-university collaboration, IP protection, government regulation and monetary incentives. So called "soft" differences in organisational behaviour and values form barriers: global differences in acceptance and comfort with out-of-process innovation is just one example; another is tolerance for failure in a managed-risk culture. Global differences in strategic application of legal IP is a subtle, invisible force that fosters or stifles technology deployment. Mis-application of IP protection, including not seeking protection, blocks and strands IP from being developed where needed.

The panel will present examples of technology implementation challenges and how they are being tackled. The panel will further engage to comment on and offer possible avenues to overcome barriers facing the industry.
