Barbados Could Become First Caribbean Island to Benefit From Gas Pipeline
Posted on: Monday, 5 December 2005, 18:00 CST

Text of report by Caribbean Media Corporation news agency website

Port of Spain, Trinidad: Barbados could become the first Caribbean country to benefit from a proposed oil and gas pipeline being constructed by Trinidad and Tobago-based East Caribbean Gas Pipeline Company, Energy Minister Eric Williams said on Monday [5 December].

Williams, speaking to reporters after signing a Memorandum of Cooperation with the Malaysian based company Petronas, said that work "is proceeding" on establishing the pipeline which could become operational by 2008.

In July, the Trinidad and Tobago government said it had agreed to modify its plans to build the pipeline that would have supplied oil and gas to a number of Caribbean states because of the high price involved.

It said nonetheless that a private company would have been established to ensure the feasibility of the project.

Williams told reporters that the Patrick Manning administration had "in fact sanctioned the project" because it felt "that it is what we believe to be a fit and proper use of natural gas from this country."

Williams said recently a delegation from Barbados had been here to discuss "some of the issues surrounding natural gas usage and the talks are progressing".

"We believe the next step is to do a detailed study of the seas bed for the routing of pipeline between Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados," he added.

He said while there was still much to be done, he believes in two years time the plan should be realised.

"We are almost close to confirming the uptake of the order, I think of between 30 to 40 million standard cubic feet of gas in Barbados and certainly the conversations are continuing with some of the other islands for other agreements".

"As I said, the discussions are ongoing and the technical work is being done. It looks on the outside to be of the order of 2008 or so because it takes a while to do those things, the water depths are very deep and the pressure are very high"

"And of course the demands for steel in the global market today, getting the long lead items going into that pipeline would be considerably challenging," he said.

He said the demands for steel in the global market was also affecting the construction of the pipeline "

Williams said the agreement with Petronas could lead to the Malaysia-based Group of Companies doing business here.

Managing director of the group, Ahmad Nizam Sale said the agreement would be beneficial to both countries.

""It is our aspiration that this agreement would result in the realisation of a successful venture between us and both the upstream oil and gas industries in Trinidad and Tobago. The signing of the MOC today marks a significant milestone, not only for both our corporations, but the beginning of a new era between Trinidad and Tobago and Malaysia."

"This MOC presents an opportunity for both parties to establish a framework for cooperation and sharing of knowledge and experiences that hopefully provide the foundation for a more to permanent relationship for the benefit of our two countries," he said.

LNG pipeline proposed.
Publication: Caribbean Update
Date: Tuesday, July 1 2008

You are viewing page 1
Canadian Superior Energy Inc. and Global LNG Inc. will collaborate on a US$550 million project to bring liquefied natural gas to the US northeast from drilling sites off Trinidad & Tobago, reports Bloomberg (May 21, 2008):

The Liberty Natural Gas Transmission Project includes a deepwater pipeline system that would receive gas 15 miles off the coast of New Jersey. The development, including an import buoy, may process up to 2.4 billion cubic feet of gas by late 2011. Canadian Superior and Global LNG, a US company controlled by some of its directors and officers, are cooperating through their joint venture, Jersey City, NJ-based Excalibur Energy (USA) Inc.;

Previous projects to supply liquefied natural gas to the US Northeast have been delayed or killed by citizens and state governments concerned about environmental damage. Connecticut and New York rejected a plan by TransCanada Corp. and Royal Dutch Shell Plc to build a terminal in Long Island Sound. The companies have asked the US government to override the states. The liquefied natural gas will be delivered "without compromising safety or the clean waters off the Jersey shore," said Excalibur CEO Roger Whelan;

Liquefied natural gas is cooled to enable transport by ship to markets beyond the reach of pipelines. The fuel will be transported on special ships which process the fuel to a gaseous state, eliminating the need for an import terminal, said Steven Some, a spokesman hired by Liberty. The gas will be fed into a buoy located off the coast of Asbury Park, New Jersey, and will flow by pipeline to Linden, a hub for other lines that serve US Northeast markets, he said;

Canadian Superior, of Calgary, and its UK partner in Trinidad and Tobago, BG Group Plc, said in January that they had drilled a well east of Trinidad that could produce more than 100 million cubic feet of gas a day. Two more wells may be drilled this year. Calgary-based Petro-Canada also said it may plan a LNG project to develop gas fields discovered offshore Trinidad. Trinidad & Tobago was the leading supplier of liquefied natural gas to the US last year, according to Energy Dept data. LNG accounted for about 3.4% of US gas supply in 2007, up from 2.7% a year earlier.

South American Leaders put Energy Integration on Front Burner
by Odeen Ishmael
Guyana Journal, May 2007

CARACAS, 26 April 2007: In their push for integration, South America presidents on April 16-17 2007 held their first energy summit on the Venezuelan island of Margarita to design an energy strategy for the region. During their discussions, they also exchanged ideas for a regional gas pipeline, the development of biofuels, the creation of the Bank of the South, and the political and economic unification of the continent.

At the end of their summit, the leaders announced the creation of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) – a transformation from the Community of South American Nations. They also agreed to set up an energy council, consisting of energy ministers from each member country. The next step in the formation of UNASUR will be the election of a Permanent Executive Secretary and the establishment of headquarters in Quito, Ecuador.

On the sidelines of the summit, a meeting of Foreign Ministers considered a legal framework under which the South American grouping will function. They finally decided that a Committee of Senior Officials comprising a representative each from the 12 countries would consider two proposals presented by Brazil and Chile and report to the next South American summit in Cartagena, Colombia later this year.

In their final summit declaration, the presidents recognized the importance of biofuels in diversifying sources of domestic energy, and committed themselves to harmonizing production of energy with agricultural growth and environmental preservation. They also called for studies to be done on the availability of land to be used for the production of biofuels and insisted that existing land for food and current national forests are not cleared for this purpose. Earlier, a discussion on the issue led by the Venezuelan, Brazilian and Bolivian presidents on the issue concluded that substituting gasoline with ethanol would spur global hunger by using up arable land needed for food production.

The international media’s speculation on a confrontation between Brazil and Venezuela over ethanol did not materialize Agreeing that ethanol would be an alternative fuel to complement traditional fuels like gasoline, President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela said it would be "absolutely impossible" to use it as a replacement for gasoline, as was proposed by President Bush during his South American tour earlier this year. He announced that Venezuela would start producing ethanol on a minor scale while importing larger quantities from Brazil, adding that Venezuela would need more than 200,000 barrels of ethanol daily to inject into its gasoline.

Among the topics discussed was President Chávez’ proposal for a “South American Energy Treaty” aimed at guaranteeing energy, gas, petroleum and alternative fuels to the region for the next 100 years. The Venezuelan President warned of the growing energy needs in the future, predicting that by 2020 consumption will expand by 47 percent in Latin America and the Caribbean.

He noted that with South American integration, the energy supply for the region can be assured and it can become one of the world's energy powers, without ignoring alternative energy. He also suggested the formation of an energy bloc to manage the region’s resources.

As an integral part of their plans the leaders discussed the construction of the gas pipelines known as the Great Gas Pipeline of the South, and the Trans-Caribbean Pipeline. With these pipelines, Venezuela seeks to supply the region with its gas reserves, beginning with Brazil.

The Great Gas Pipeline of the South, which has raised doubts in some quarters about its viability and its environmental impact, will be 8,000 kilometers long and will require an estimated investment of about 23 billion dollars. The project for the Trans-Caribbean Pipeline between Venezuela and Colombia – and which may later be extended to Panama – is expected to be approved in August.

In tackling the issue of global warming, the South American leaders urged conservation of electricity to mitigate the effects of the increasing problem. There was a call for all countries to adopt more efficient conservation mechanisms while noting that some have already introduced programs to conserve on fuel. For instance, Venezuela has completed the process of exchanging 50 million high-energy bulbs to compact fluorescent lamps in households. The country's authorities are now targeting commercial businesses and municipalities to replace high energy bulbs with low energy bulbs.

Guyana’s Prime Minister Samuel Hinds, who represented President Bharrat Jagdeo at the forum, stated that with Cuba's assistance some 440,000 high energy bulbs were also exchanged and distributed in 104,000 Guyanese households last year, thus helping to reduce pressure on the national electricity grid. He also informed the summit that Guyana was examining proposals from foreign investors for the production of ethanol.

And looking to the future, Paraguay’s President Nicanor Duarte pointed out that with mounting pressures placed on traditional energy resources, hydrogen as a fuel will become significant later in this century. He said his country has one of the largest aquifers in South America and that will prove to be a vital asset in the development of hydrogen fuel.

Another significant issue discussed at the summit was the development of a Bank of the South which Venezuela, along with Brazil, hopes to consolidate. The reported announcement that Brazil will financially subscribe to the Bank is significant since the multinational fund it will create will finance regional development and combat poverty in South America.

With the energy issue now taking a central role in the economic and political integration process in South America, it is a foregone conclusion that a series of high level meetings will follow up on the just concluded summit. And a second energy summit will most likely be decided upon by the forthcoming South American presidential summit in Colombia.

This may have already been posted and it's an older bit of news from 2000, I believe....based on other articles I found for PetroCom & Sonsub.

Optics network complete with 30 crossings
Sonsub recently announced it has completed work on PetroCom's FiberWeb system in the Gulf of Mexico. Sonsub worked on about 30 pipeline crossings for the project in water depths up to 700-ft. The company installed concrete mattresses to protect the fiber optic cable crossings over pipelines. The company also performed pipeline location and cable inspection for the project.

Sonsub used a complete marine installation offshore spread consisting of its 100 hp Scorpion 24 ROV system, the Midnight Arrow, new build ROV vessel from Torch and surface and acoustic positioning services from J.D. Silvetti. Sonsub also provided cable maintenance services. FiberWeb is a project to provide high-bandwidth communication capability to fixed platforms in the Gulf.

Hotping,

Did you see my post about Kaplan Industry being located in Panama?   I see you are here, but am not sure if you are catching up reading. 



2NJ...I'm here but I'm not....lol.... That is I'm over in other tabs researching....I'm Trying to Figure out what Seatronics Erik McGuire and Greg Landry Offshore Innovative Solutions were doing involved in this search it was suppose to be financial support  (But I thought Schaefer supplied all the funding) but it looks like Offshore Innovative Solutions did some of the ROV dives.....If Silvetti was the ROV guy why were these other companies involved....I can find virtually nothing on Greg Landy and Offshore Innovative Solutions and I found alot on Seatronics who is in a huge group of companies from the UK....

Yes I saw Your post on  Kaplan Industry being in Panama....I have not found much on Kaplan at all....

Check out this out

The original search area surveyed by the R/V Persistence was selected based on numerous pieces of information provided by Dave Holloway, Tim Miller, investigations, interrogations, depositions and other information from local authorities. After compiling and reviewing the information, the search area was selected by Louis Schaefer and John Silvetti. Upon completion of the sonar runs in this area, 65 ROV dives were performed by Offshore Innovative Solutions (OIS) on targets identified by sonar. Divers from the Aruban Police Diving Division and Underwater Expeditions made several dives and retrieved samples which were delivered for analysis. Several targets in this first survey grid yet remain to be investigated by ROV which will occur in approximately one week when ROV dive operations recommence.

Kermit,

The date that article was published had to be 2007 or earlier, yes?  The names underscored are familiar to some of us who have been researching.  The date the Achiever was to be finished ended up being a little later according to articles such as the following (which has been posted earlier):


Hornbeck Offshore to acquire Superior Achiever


Offshore staff

HOUSTON -- Hornbeck Offshore Services Inc. has agreed with Superior Offshore International Inc. to purchase the Superior Achiever, a T-22 class DP-3 new generation multi-purpose support vessel and related owner-furnished equipment.

The MSV is currently under construction at Merwede Shipyard in Holland with an anticipated 4Q 2008 delivery, the company says. Merwede Shipyard also is building for Hornbeck the HOS Iron Horse, a T-22 class DP-3 MPSV of the same design, with an expected 4Q 2009 delivery.

With the pending acquisition of the Superior Achiever, the company's MSV program now consists of four vessels.

Hornbeck also plans to expand its current offshore supply vessel newbuild program. The company has contracted for the construction of two additional proprietary 240 ED class offshore supply vessels with Atlantic Marine in Jacksonville, Florida, which is the same US shipyard that is currently building four identical sister vessels for Hornbeck. The two new vessels are anticipated to be delivered in 2010.

2NJ - yes, you have to be correct.

That looks like what may have been part of their media blitz prior to their IPO.

You know - their whole "let's dupe the public into investing in Superior Offshore so's we can all rake in a ton of dough and then run away (to Aruba) and hide it all"

Yes....that is what I was thinking.   I don't always express ALL that is going on in my brain (not deliberately Smile  ) and after posting to Kerm was thinking I seemed unappreciative of the screen shots....not the case,   Just was trying to point out what you've just said in a half azzed way!

Two peas in a pod, you and I 

I have to really pay attention posting here, because I had gotten used to posting with the same group of friends for 3 years - and we all got to understand the posting styles over time with each other.

So now I'm here I have to really watch it - because I can't expect Monkeys to be able to read my mind like the Freebirds could. 

So I guess what that means is - I understood your post and what you were conveying with it!
