News, analysis, and expert insight from Energy Voice – leading the global energy conversation.

    EVOL: Rosebank, the Philippines and wads of cash

    EVOL: Rosebank, the Philippines and wads of cash

    Summer holidays have thinned Energy Voice’s ranks during a busy week for oil, gas, LNG, and everything in between. After much speculation, it seems Rosebank is a goer, and Equinor has the documents to prove it. A major report laden with economic and employment treats arising from the North Sea field has also been released.  

    There’s a thrilla in Manilla as the Philippines new president sets about meeting rising demand for electricity.  AG&P’s new LNG terminal, due online this December, could go some way to helping that.  

    And BP has become the latest oil giant to post and eye-watering set of financials, sparking anger as households struggle to cope with rising energy bills. But is it right that energy companies are receiving the lion’s share of the backlash? And what would Groucho Marx think about it?

    The Megawatt Hour 02: Unlocking the battery storage business model

    The Megawatt Hour 02: Unlocking the battery storage business model

    In this the second episode of our special energy storage boxset series, content editor Andrew Dykes is joined by co-host David Bevan, corporate finance partner at BDO, and by Ben Guest, managing director and head of the New Energy division at alternative asset management group Gresham House.

    This episode we’ll be taking a deep dive into possibly the largest and liveliest area of the sector today: battery storage. In less than a decade the UK has moved from having no large-scale battery capacity to more than 1.6GW in operation. 

    We look at what’s driving that growth, the hurdles faced by the sector, and importantly what opportunities may lie ahead.

    The Megawatt Hour is the a special podcast series brought to you by Energy Voice Out Loud in paid partnership with BDO.

    EVOL: A bird, a wing and a prayer

    EVOL: A bird, a wing and a prayer

    As concerns mount over the winter’s energy crisis, Shell has opted to move forwards with its Jackdaw project in the North Sea – even while Greenpeace files a case against the plan. Who knows who will prevail, but the mood music around domestic hydrocarbon production is much more positive now than it was.  

    Damon drills into the changing energy mix in Asia, which is shifting towards a mix of coal and renewables, while largely avoiding high-priced gas. CCS is going to play a role in capturing some emissions, but it may prove a tricky road to achieve a Paris-compliant 2050 target.  

    Finally, South Africa’s government has flagged proposed changes to its power sector and, finally, making all the right noises. Liberalisation seems to be the name of the game but there are sceptics around, not least expressing concerns about the same old ANC hands continuing to oversee this new programme.

    EVOL Paddleboarding, Harry Styles, and electricity market reform

    EVOL Paddleboarding, Harry Styles, and electricity market reform

    It’s TikTok and Harry Styles at EVOL Towers this week. But fear not, it’s not all Gen Z, there’s also water sports and Nigerian musical excellence to enjoy.  

    Would you take a paddleboard 10 miles out to sea without a lifejacket? Neither would we! The team chats about the latest viral video racking up 20 million views of someone doing just that at the Rampion project.  

    Ed’s been partying at the glitzy relaunch of Nigeria’s NNPC as a private company. An IPO is on the cards next year, but can the political support be mustered to make it happen?  

    And Andrew has read through a 130-page document so you don’t have to! We talk the far-reaching implications of the UK Government’s (much needed) reforms on the UK electricity market.

    EVOL: Big gas discoveries, takeover talk, and Nigeria deals

    EVOL: Big gas discoveries, takeover talk, and Nigeria deals

    There is positive news from Indonesia this week after Harbour Energy announced initial success at a potential play-opening deepwater exploration well offshore Sumatra. The initial result bodes well for the frontier area and could open more petroleum plays, which are thought to be gas prone.  

     

    Meanwhile, Ed walks us through the latest from San Leon Energy as it closes in on the completion of its Nigeria deal and manages to avoid the termination of its listing on London’s AIM. The team discuss the pitfalls facing developments in the African country, such as theft and sabotage, as well a potential shift in financing from London to the Middle East.  

     

    Last, but not least, Allister covers the takeover talk going on between Serica Energy and smaller rival Kistos. Andrew Austin of Kistos, renowned for being a prolific dealmaker appears to be at it again. It remains to be seen who will win the takeover tussle.

    EVOL: Resignations, Hummingbird, and LNG growth

    EVOL: Resignations, Hummingbird, and LNG growth

    In what has turned out to be a rather turbulent week, Allister, Hamish and Ed are here to give you some welcome stability and speculation.  

    The team reacts live to the news that Boris Johnson is heading for the door and what that could mean for the energy sector. OEUK wants a meeting with the NEW Chancellor, but it is unlikely to be a priority for Number 11 at the moment.  

    Back in the North Sea and light has been shed on where the much-loved Hummingbird Spirit FPSO is heading – and it’s not to the scrap heap!  

    And Ed talks LNG and the potential for Africa to step in to help Europe with its energy woes, if they’re willing to accept of course.
