‘Valero and WEB operate on natural gas in 2013’     
Monday, 19 December 2011 11:49 

ORANJESTAD — The project to run oil refinery Valero and water & energy company WEB entirely on liquefied natural gas is well underway. Expectations are that these companies will have arranged everything to switch from fuel oil to Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) at the end of 2012 or beginning 2013.Utilities minister Mike de Meza said the aforementioned upon returning from his recent business trip to The Netherlands, where he had spoken with the Dutch Gas Union, one of the partners in this project. “These large projects usually take eighteen months. We started about six months ago and are on schedule,” says De Meza. He states the joint venture of Valero, WEB and the Dutch Gas Union are currently drawing up the plans and drafts. Moreover, they are negotiating with companies that supply liquefied natural gas, said the Minister. A delegation consisting of Arubans and representatives from Gas Union will soon leave for Houston, Texas to consult with Valero on the latest state of affairs.

The ultimate plans are to build a gas terminal. This project, worth 200 million euros, is scheduled to start in 2015. En route to this permanent gas terminal, the joint venture will work with ‘floating storage’; a ship moored off the coast will be used to store the liquefied natural gas. Gas Union will lay down a pipeline from this ship to Valero and a long pipeline to WEB. Apart from a gas supplier, the joint venture is also seeking a company that can manage this floating storage. De Meza explains that the plans are to recover the costs. “Gas is much cheaper.” According to the Minister, consumers will also notice the lower cost price of water and electricity. “They will notice a substantial reduction”, says De Meza.

Finding a solution to keep Aruba refinery open and running       
Monday, 16 January 2012 08:35 

A few days before Christmas, Valero executives from the head offices in San Antonio, Texas contacted the Aruba government to inform them that the refinery was suffering financial losses caused by the international economic situation.
The Aruba government is using its contacts via the network of Dutch embassies in neighboring countries Venezuela (PdVSA) and Colombia (EcoPetrol), as well as the consuls general of these countries on Aruba to reach some kind of strategic cooperation with the Valero Aruba Refinery.

The refinery accounts for 15% of our economy and the government is doing its utmost to find strategic cooperation in our region, Prime Minister Eman stated.

Minister de Meza of Finance and the Prime Minister Eman also paid a visit to Valero CEO Bill Klessee in San Antonio recently to talk about the situation.

Future of Valero Aruba up in air; company has no interest in Murphy UK plant

New York (Platts)--31Jan2012/459 pm EST/2159 GMT

 ::snipping2::

In North America, Klesse compared the outlook for Valero's 235,000 b/d Aruba refinery in the Caribbean to the Hovensa plant in the region that is being shut by the Hess-PDVSA joint venture and turned into a terminal.

"We're in the same boat as what was announced by one of our competitors operating in the Caribbean," he said, confirming the Aruba plant posted a loss in the fourth quarter.

A decision on "strategic alternatives" for Aruba will be made "very shortly here within the first quarter," he said.

Valero spokesman Bill Day confirmed in an email that a shutdown is one of several options being looked out, including "a sale, a joint operating agreement [and] further reductions in runs." The closure of Aruba would affect the intermediates sent from that plant to Valero's Gulf Coast refineries, as well as Atlantic Basin crude purchases.

Prime Minister Eman: Government and parliament members concerned, cooperating on finding viable solution for Valero 
Saturday, 04 February 2012 16:32 

Minister President Mike Eman expressed that the government as well as members of parliament from the governing AVP party are deeply concerned and doing their best to find a viable solution to keep Valero refinery open.  ::snipping2::

Government has intensified its contacts with PdVSA of Venezuela and Ecopetrol of Colombia, which are the two countries closest to Aruba with crude. PdVSA representatives have already visited Aruba. Members of Parliament have visited Colombia as well. Eman said the contact with Venezuela has also been intensive and he sees a great potential for establishing a partnership between PdVSA and Valero. However, there has been no decision and no concrete answers yet and the situation remains critical. Eman explained that the losses the refinery is suffering at present are considerable, low sales margins on refined products are causing negative financial results and it is difficult to predict what will happen in the coming months. While conversations continue with PdVSA and Ecopetrol, the Aruba government also has an upcoming meeting with the Brazilian energy minister scheduled.

Extra visits to Brazil to seek urgent solution for Valero 
Monday, 6 February 2012 11:37

ORANJESTAD — Premier Mike Eman and a delegation consisting of colleague minister Mike de Meza (AVP) and chairman Ronald van Trigt from employers’ organization Atia left for Brazil last weekend to urgently seek partners or take over parties for Valero. With this, the government wants to avoid closing down the refinery at San Nicolas. In the meantime, the Latino-community on Aruba organized a petition.During a meeting tomorrow with the Brazilian minister of Mines and Energy, Edison Lobao, the delegation will explain the situation of Valero and Aruba. There will also be meetings with important executives, said De Meza. The Brazilian energy company Petrobras had expressed their interest in the refinery earlier on and the company is probably still interested, said Eman.

The delegation will also seek solutions in Columbia during a meeting with the Columbian President Juan Manuel Santos next week Monday. After a meeting between Eman and Santos, the Aruban delegation will meet with the Columbian Minister of Energy and Economic Affairs. Eman: “We will have sufficient time to exchange ideas with Santos, his government and Ecopetrol to raise the possibilities for a strategic collaboration again.” The delegation will also make a second attempt to arrange a meeting with PDVSA and Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.

Eman had asked Atia-chairman Van Trigt to join the delegation because he had made contacts with investors and others who produce oil in Brazil. There will be a meeting with oil and gas company OGX and with an international investment bank for financing possibilities. Both Van Trigt and De Meza indicate they are optimistic. Not only because they are doing their utmost to convince partners, said Van Trigt, but also because the Aruban refinery is a great player in the oil world, said De Meza.

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 8:43

ORANGE CITY / RIO DE JANEIRO - "Brazil says she has renewed interest in the oil refinery in Aruba. There are certainly opportunities for strategic cooperation between both countries. "Said Premier Mike Eman (AVP) from Brazil, where he is currently in discussions with the Brazilian government to find a partner for Valero.

Eman is with Energy Minister Mike de Meza and with the Minister of Economic Affairs, Michelle Winklaar. The president of employers' organization Atia, Ronald Trigt is it. He is partly because of the upcoming trade mission to Brazil in March from Aruba goes. The Aruban delegation has now interviewed, among others, the Brazilian Minister of Mines and Energy, Edison Lobão. From that conversation, that Eman described as "fruitful", shows that the South American country is able to re-open for opportunities for strategic cooperation between both countries to investigate. The goal is to eventually sit at the table with oil company Petrobras. Which has twice shown interest in acquiring the refinery or a joint venture. Both times, bounced a final agreement, however.

Premier invited Eman during maintenance Lobão from this year to be keynote speaker at the Green Conference and Lobão has accepted this invitation. The Brazilian had in turn implied that he attaches great importance to the trade mission. The Meza said after the meeting that if the negotiations between Brazil and Aruba again be started, "the government will participate as active and the highest priority.  ::snipping2::

IOWUA "Valero contract workers send back home '
Tuesday, February 14, 2012 9:07

SAN NICOLAS - The organizers of the Valero refinery yesterday again indicated fewer contract workers need. At least, union Iowua. There are now only about 200 contractors across the usual number of 1000, says union leader John "Boy" Anthony. Meanwhile the government says that on February 24, delegations from Valero, Petrobras, Ecopetrol and PDVSA might come to Aruba to discuss a possible partnership.

Randy Milligan, director of contracting Goedecke confirms the Amigoe contractors yesterday that his company were sent home by Valero. He would not specify how much. "We recently have more to send people home. Everyone knows that the refinery is now very hard on trying to save costs. But we will continue working and stay positive. "Brian Boekhoudt of contractor Douhsar only want to follow Lost:" We are in negotiations and making backup plans and would therefore no judgment on whether we are or not people sent home. "

Valero spokesman Bill Day says that it send home more contract workers has nothing to do with the loss of running the refinery. These workers, according to him no longer necessary because certain activities are completed. The refinery is now even less to produce, says Day.

Union leader Anthony says that there are contractors that almost half of their contract workers sent home. "Layoffs are not already. They will just break. "It is often difficult for these specialist workers to win again. This week I received a shipment of one million barrels of crude oil must be refined. "That gives us about ten days work, so again ten additional days for the government to a potential partner for the refinery to find," said Anthony

No firm commitments for Oil and Gas Summit
Saturday, February 25, 2012 8:47

ORANGE CITY - The Aruba Oil and Gas Summit 2012, with the government, Valero, Ecopetrol, Repsol, Gasunie and Pacific Rubiales as participants, as any concrete result that the parties together in the short term will continue to talk about cooperation. This is contained in a statement last night signed.

The Aruban government organized Aruba Oil and Gas Summit 2012 in Radisson, with support from the Government of Colombia. The summit had as a primary goal of a possible solution to the loss-making Valero refinery in Aruba and scenarios to work together to seek a possible partnership or acquisition of the refinery would promote. The possible exploitation and supply of gas were on the agenda.

Possible alliances
Three possible alliances lay on a table. First, a between Aruba, the Colombian energy company Ecopetrol, the Dutch Gasunie and Valero for the construction of a gas line between Colombia to Aruba and projects in the field of liquefied and compressed gas. The second alliance between Aruba, the Spanish energy company Repsol and Ecopetrol for drilling for gas around the island. The third possibility was alliance between Aruba, Valero and Ecopetrol for partnership in the refinery and the ability to build together a so-called upgrader project 'to process heavy South American crude oil.

In the final statement is therefore clear that the discussions "very productive" were. The interlocutors agreed that they discussed the alliance will further study. In the short term they come together again to the agendas of the following discussions to capture and continue the conversation. Aruba will contribute to the setting of agendas.

Visit instead of working groups
Daily Herald reported yesterday that the participants in working groups would be classified today. But the secretary of the cabinet, Nicole Hoevertsz, said this morning that the top does not go today. Instead, visit the delegations at the refinery. The statement signed by the parties yesterday, was released unexpectedly.   ::snipping2::

Monday, February 27, 2012 8:47

 ::snipping2:: "Next week, the conversation between Ecopetrol in Colombia, Repsol, Valero and the Aruban government continued," De Meza. The possibility that the Brazilian Petrobras is sit down there, so he lets the Amigoe. Petrobras did not participate in the Oil and Gas Summit just because on that day carnival was celebrated. "Then everything is quiet in Brazil. They would still be able to send someone but Petrobras insisted on a strong delegation to send to Aruba and that was not on such short notice with their such an important day for the door. "Petrobras still has the choice to join us at the meeting or separately with Aruba to sit around the table. The Meza: "We send event is an invitation to them." The government is also waiting for confirmation from the Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA for talks on the refinery. "There are some seemingly complicated factors. So is Venezuela in an election year and face President Hugo Chavez with health problems affecting their agenda at this time may be other priorities. "That Venezuela and conditions for further talks would have demanded that Aruba participates in it led regional alliance Petrocaribe or even its ties with the Netherlands should weaken, denies the minister. Moreover, all parties agree that Aruba is not exclusive negotiating with them, but simultaneously enters into negotiation processes with multiple parties as soon as possible a permanent solution to the refinery. Meanwhile, Valero yet open and running a production of 100,000 barrels per day.

According to Meza, the government does not perceive that this weekend nails with heads would be beaten with various interlocutors. "It is indeed a route that has long run. But Ecopetrol is a candidate who recently came to. "In addition to discussions about the refinery, including the Spanish energy giant Repsol and the Dutch Gasunie, discussed gas over a period of between two and five years. "We wanted this meeting as a package deal. All these factors namely with each other, "said De Meza. Although there are still several candidates for gas exploration in the waters around Aruba Repsol is the largest and most interested and why the party was invited, let the minister know.

Government asks Valero if necessary stop production, but do not close       
Wednesday, 14 March 2012 08:12 

Aruba Prime Minister Mike Eman and Minister of Finance and Energy Mike de Meza have been since December seeking a suitable solution for the financial challenges the Valero Aruba Refinery is currently facing.

At present the price of heavy crude which is refined here is much too high with no signs of decreasing any time soon. Because of the unfavorable situation, the refinery is not a profitable operation anymore and will close should the price not go down and/or no partner or buyer be found.

Prime Minister Eman said that after a few meetings, Brazil's Petrobras said it is not interested in purchasing nor delivering heavy crude to Valero, simply because they will be focusing their efforts in their own country.

The government has also met with Colombia's Ecopetrol and Venezuela's PDVSA, but have not yet received an answer. Currently Ecopetrol is studying documents they requested and received from Valero, the prime Minister explained. He added that the island's urgency to solve this challenge is not an urgency for these companies and furthermore and most importantly, these companies have to review every bit of information before taking such an important decision.

Valero, the government is partly to meet the refinery and decided some months to run, so to end this month, either with reduced production.
