ExxonMobil continues preparatory work for gas project in Vietnam

ExxonMobil is continuing preparatory work for its Ca Voi Xanh (Blue Whale) gas project in Vietnam, it said on Monday, with an FID dependent on factors including regulatory approvals and gas sales deals. 

Last month, the ExxonMobil board was debating whether to continue with several major oil and gas projects, including the project in Vietnam, amid a push from investors for fossil fuel companies to be more cost-conscious and green-energy friendly. 

"We completed front-end engineering and design for the project in May 2020, and are working on the final development plan," a company spokesperson said in an emailed statement. 

Located off Vietnam's central coast, Ca Voi Xanh is potentially the country's biggest gas project, with an estimated 150 Bm3 in reserves. 

Under initial project plans, the gas would flow through an 80 km pipeline to be processed near Danang city and then supplied to four proposed power plants in Vietnam's central provinces. 

"A final investment decision will be based on a number of factors, including regulatory approvals, government guarantees, executed gas sales agreements and economic competitiveness," the spokesperson said.

Editorial Comment
-Adrienne Blume
With Henry Hub (HH) natural gas prices almost twice as high year over year, as of the time of writing in late October, and similarly record-high prices in Europe and Asia driving competition for LNG, the gas market is rife with tension.
Executive Viewpoint: Building the foundation for a low-emission LNG facility
-Jennifer Adams
Electric LNG (i.e., eLNG) has emerged as a powerful decarbonization pathway for LNG project stakeholders.
Maintenance and Reliability: Looking beyond processing efficiency to optimize operations
-Adam Bozick
When facility owners think about plant optimization, the emphasis often is on maximizing throughput and, in many cases, that means focusing on processing equipment.


Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants

Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
