Company Updates

petrobras-logoPetrobras will double in size by 2020. The statement was made by the Company's CEO, Maria das Graças Silva Foster, during the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), in Houston (USA). The CEO presented the lecture "The Future of Energy in Brazil: the role of Petrobras", during the panel called "Global Energy Outlook - Shaping the Future!", with more than 250 attendees.

The CEO highlighted that production in Brazil, which was 2.2 million barrels of oil equivalent (oil and natural gas) per day in 2012, will reach 5.7 million in 2020. And the pre-salt will be largely responsible for this increase. "We (Petrobras) have made 53 discoveries in Brazil during the last 14 months. In the pre-salt alone there were 15 discoveries", she emphasized. "Petrobras' reserves have the potential to double in size and reach 31.5 billion barrels of oil equivalent in the coming years," she added. For her, there is no doubt that the results are due to the Company's investments, which have increased at a rate of 21.5% per year since 2000 and reached US$ 42.9 billion in 2012.

Investments in Research and Development during the period were also significant and important in achieving the goals: over the last twelve years, investments in this area have grown 18.3% per year, and in 2012 they reached US$ 1.1 billion. Petrobras' investment plan for the 2013-2017 period amount to US$ 236.7 billion.

Graça Foster also highlighted the Brazilian market's growing demand, which has been well above the world average. Between 2000 and 2012, the demand for gasoline in Brazil increased by 73%, compared to 17% globally. In the same period, the demand for diesel in Brazil rose 52%, compared to 31% globally. "And when comparing aviation kerosene it is even more impressive: while demand in Brazil increased 58%, it decreased 3% globally", the CEO said.

The CEO also noted that the Company's investments, together with the local content valuation policy, encouraged foreign shipyards to go to Brazil and become technological partners of the shipyards that are being implemented in the country. Some of them include partners from Japan, China and Korea.

Also taking part in the panel was Angolan Oil Minister, José de Vasconcelos, Canadian Minister of Industry, Tourism and Investment, David Ramsey, and Pemex's Director of Exploration and Production, Carlos Morales-Gil. The panel was mediated by Gamal Hassan, the person responsible for OTC's schedule.

MacArtney Norge has a long standing relationship with ROV manufacturer SAAB Seaeye - and the two companies have worked together on numerous projects related to the production, maintenance and sale of the versatile Sea Owl 500 observation class ROV system. Now MacArtney and SAAB Seaeye have developed an upgraded XTi version which, while staying within the realm of the original and proven Sea Owl 500 design, features significant upgrades of all system facets.

The Sea Owl

Sea_Owl_LARSThe Sea Owl system was developed by SAAB in the early 90’s and has since proved itself as an extremely reliable and also a very popular ROV among its users. Applications include observation and inspection of subsea installations and light work tasks in challenging environments.

The primary market for the Sea Owl is firmly rooted on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and the XTi has been developed to meet the requirements of operators who perform subsea work on behalf of, for instance, Statoil. Among the new features, the XTi boast a 360 degree control programme (6 DOF), a 3000 metre depth rating and a 400 metre tether length on the top-hat TMS. In addition, the SAAB Seaeye ICON control system enables easy integration of sensors. Finally, tooling package application is made even more flexible and user-friendly.

To realise this exciting system upgrade, MacArtney Norge has worked closely with the MacArtney Group HQ in Denmark - to develop a complete launch and recovery system that meets customer demands for ‘No Manuel Handling’ and HSR requirements.

GardlineThe new company is to be called Gardline Marine Sciences do Brasil S.A, and is a 50/50 joint venture between Gardline Marine Sciences (South America) Ltd and OceanPact Serviços Marítimos Ltda. This strategic alliance will see the two companies sharing their marine expertise and resources in order to pursue marine survey projects in Brazilian waters.

Gardline Marine Sciences do Brasil S.A will focus on fully integrated survey packages including geophysical, hydrographic, environmental, oceanographic and geotechnical surveys.  The company will provide a wide range of integrated marine science services including: 2D seismic exploration, 2D/3D high resolution data acquisition and interpretation, shallow gas hazard analysis, seabed mapping, shallow to deep water soil investigation, near shore and coastal surveys, water flow measurement and water quality.  

 Gardline has been providing clients with a comprehensive set of offshore integrated survey services for over 40 years. By combining this expertise with the significant Brazilian market presence of OceanPact, the joint venture will provide clients with the global experience, knowledge and resources needed for any marine survey. 

 Both companies have a strong reputation for health and safety, ensuring that projects are delivered safely, without incident or impact on the environment, on time, on budget and to the highest industry standards. 

 Gardline & OceanPact already have a proven track record of working together to provide services to the Brazilian energy sector.

BPBP and federal and state Natural Resource Damages (NRD) Trustees have reached agreement in principle on two additional proposed early restoration projects in Louisiana that are expected to cost approximately $340 million. The projects are part of BP's unprecedented commitment to provide up to $1 billion in early restoration funding to expedite recovery of natural resources injured as a result of the Deepwater Horizon accident.

BP has been working diligently with the Trustees to develop additional projects to meet BP's commitment to early restoration. In fact, for several months now BP had an agreement in principle with the Trustees to proceed with a number of projects, including those announced today by Louisiana. The Trustees made a decision to hold such announcements until months after our agreement in principle.

“We are extremely pleased to have reached agreement with the Trustees on the new projects, which will provide significant long-term benefits to the environment and the people of Louisiana,” said Laura Folse, BP’s Executive Vice President for Response and Environmental Restoration. “With the help of the extensive cleanup efforts, early restoration projects, and natural recovery processes, the Gulf is returning to its baseline condition, which is the condition it would be in if the accident had not occurred.”

BP and the Trustees have now agreed to a total of four early restoration projects in Louisiana expected to cost approximately $370 million, including two projects that were approved in 2012 and are already underway. BP stepped up to make funds available, enabling restoration projects to begin before the ongoing NRD assessment is complete.

The new Louisiana projects will create a fish hatchery facility and will rebuild and restore beach, dune and marsh habitat on a number of coastal Louisiana islands.

The Agreement between BP and the Trustees is unique in that it makes it possible for restoration to begin at an earlier stage of the NRD process. NRD restoration projects are typically funded only after a final settlement has been reached or a final court judgment has been entered. The Agreement allows the parties to expedite projects to restore, replace or acquire the equivalent of injured natural resources in the Gulf soon after an injury is identified, reducing the time needed to achieve restoration of those resources.

Under the Agreement, BP provides the funding and the Trustees implement the projects. Funding is provided from the $20 billion trust BP established in 2010 to pay claims, final judgments in litigation and litigation settlements, state and local response costs and claims, and natural resource damages and related costs.

In addition to the early restoration projects, to meet its commitments in the Gulf, BP has spent more than $14 billion in operational response and clean-up costs; has paid $10.7 billion to individuals, businesses and government entities for claims, settlements and other payments; and has agreed to a settlement with the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee that will resolve the substantial majority of outstanding private economic loss, property damage and medical claims.

Louisiana early restoration projects announced April 30,  include:

• Louisiana Outer Coast Restoration Project will restore beach, dune and marsh habitat on Whiskey Island (Calliou Lake Headlands), Chenier Ronquille Island, the east and west lobes of Shell Island, and North Breton Island. Restoring these barrier islands will help protect Louisiana’s wetlands and slow coastal erosion. The project will create beaches, dunes and marshes; repair breaches in the shoreline; and revegetate the islands using appropriate native species. Estimated cost: $318,363,000

• Louisiana Fish Hatchery Project will build a hatchery facility for the production of three important species of recreational fish: speckled trout, red drum and southern flounder. The facility will be located on a 90-acre site and will include 3 one-half acre ponds; 14,000 square feet of building space; a reservoir and pumping station; and a youth fishing pond and kayak launch. The building space would include hatchery production as well as a lobby with educational displays, a classroom/conference room, and production touring areas for visitors. Estimated cost: $22,000,000

Projects approved in 2012 include:

• Louisiana Lake Hermitage Marsh Project will create 104 acres of marsh within the Barataria Hydrologic Basin in Plaquemines Parish. Sediment will be dredged from the Mississippi River and pumped via pipeline to the project area. This is designed to produce the desired elevation and the ability to plant native vegetation in the sediment. Base cost: $13,200,000 (final payment complete; Base cost + contingency cost: $14,400,000 (contingency cost pending)

• Louisiana Oyster Cultch Project will create productive oyster cultch areas on public oyster seed grounds in six locations across 850 acres throughout coastal Louisiana. In addition, improvements will be made to an existing oyster hatchery on Grand Isle, which will produce larvae to be released over the cultch material. Base cost: $14,874,300 (final payment complete); Base cost + contingency cost: $15,582,600 (contingency cost pending)

"Today we are further investing in a business segment we know well and an international rental tools growth strategy that we've focused on for some time," said Gary Rich , president and chief executive officer of Parker Drilling .  "ITS is one of the industry's leading independent international rental tools and well service companies with a broad footprint and a strong portfolio of products and service capabilities.  By expanding our geographic presence and services offering, we are positioning ourselves to better serve the growing needs of international E&P operators and drilling contractors."

Joe Chandler , previously chief executive officer of International Tubular Services (Holdings) Limited and now vice president of Parker's International Rental Tools business unit, commented, "This is an exciting combination.  With the support of Parker, ITS is now in a better condition to provide the best solutions for our customers.   As part of Parker, a company with a respected reputation, financial strength, process discipline and dedication to people, we expect to continue to grow our ability to deliver premier rental tools services on a global scale."

"This acquisition creates immediate advantages for Parker," Mr. Rich said.  "It increases our geographic and product line diversity and enhances our ability to deliver innovative, reliable and efficient results to our customers.  We are confident this transaction will provide attractive financial returns and compelling cost and tax benefits that will improve profitability and drive increased value for our shareholders."

For this transaction, Goldman, Sachs & Co. acted as financial advisor, Ernst &Young LLP provided advisory services, and Baker Botts LLP acted as Parker's legal advisor.
