Medallion announces binding open season for expansion of crude oil pipeline

first_imgThrough the open season, Medallion proposes to expand two pipeline segments to transport increased quantities of crude oil, produced from acreage proximate to Medallion’s system, to downstream pipelines and markets Image: Medallion announces binding open season for expansion of crude oil pipeline. Photo: courtesy of Johannes Rupf from Pixabay. Medallion Pipeline Company, LLC (Medallion) today announced a binding open season to solicit long-term, firm shipper commitments for an expansion of its crude oil pipeline system in the Midland Basin. Through the open season, Medallion proposes to expand two pipeline segments to transport increased quantities of crude oil, produced from acreage proximate to Medallion’s system, to downstream pipelines and markets.The Existing Medallion Pipeline SystemThe existing Medallion pipeline system consists of approximately 800 miles of 6-inch diameter and larger crude oil pipeline spanning some of the most prolific crude oil producing counties in the Permian Basin.1 The Medallion pipeline, which consists of eight pipeline segments located in Crane, Glasscock, Howard, Irion, Martin, Midland, Mitchell, Reagan, Scurry and Upton counties, all within the state of Texas, serves as an intrabasin header system providing diversified market access to ten downstream pipelines that interconnect with the Medallion system at Medallion’s Crane Hub, Midland Hub, and Colorado City Hub.The ExpansionTo address the growing need for pipeline capacity in the region, Medallion plans to construct an operational loop of its existing Howard Lateral and an expansion of its Midkiff Lateral from the Garden City Station to the Midkiff Station. The open season provides an opportunity for interested shippers to acquire long-term firm capacity under binding transportation services agreements, as a committed firm shipper on one or both expansion segments.Open Season ProcessThe open season begins today, September 24, 2019 and ends at 4:00 p.m. CDT, Friday, October 18, 2019. All bids must be submitted during the open season, except as provided in the open season notice.Existing committed firm shippers will be provided the option to participate in the open season to 1) amend an existing transportation services agreement for transportation on the Howard Lateral to obtain the lower expansion rates offered on the Howard expansion in return for an extension of the primary term of the existing transportation services agreement, and 2) add the Midkiff Station as a destination point to an existing transportation services agreement for committed firm transportation on the Midkiff Lateral.

In Libya, the recovery of a troubled oil industry is gathering pace

first_imgLibyan oil revival adds to Opec concernsLibya has long been dependent on oil revenues to bolster its national economy. It holds the largest oil reserves in Africa, and has been a member of the Opec group of oil-exporting countries since 1962.Oil and gas accounts for around 60% of national GDP, and back in February Prime Minister al-Serraj warned of risks to Libya’s financial security as a results of the blockades.NOC claims production outages have cost the Libyan economy almost $10bn in lost revenues since blockades started in January, and the company’s chairman Mustafa Sanalla has lamented the “disastrous effects on our national economy and the livelihood of Libyans”.Libya has been a member of Opec since 1962 (Credit: Opec)The resurgence of oil in the country comes at a challenging time, however, amid depressed prices and low global demand caused by the coronavirus pandemic.Members of Opec, along with allies including Russia, have been co-ordinating to limit their production activities since May in an effort to bring balance to an oversupplied market – currently at a rate of 7.7 million bpd.Under the existing agreement – from which Libya was excepted due to the conflict – members of the so-called Opec+ alliance had planned to ease this cutback to 5.8 million bpd from January onwards, but there are now discussions about whether or not to deepen the cuts once more.Recent weeks have seen resurgence of the virus in many parts of the world, with fresh lockdowns introduced across key European markets – dealing a blow to the demand outlook.The addition of new Libyan oil flowing into this oversaturated marketplace has complicated matters further, and benchmark crude prices have shown signs of dropping once more, having stabilised at around $40 per barrel in recent months.“Libya’s great comeback story is a thorn in the side of the Opec+ group, which is already struggling to keep oil prices afloat amid non-compliance among members and a deteriorating demand backdrop,” notes Rystad Energy.“Libya adding another 300,000-400,000 bpd of oil to an already oversupplied market would further skew the supply-demand imbalance, and put another layer of downside risk on oil prices.” The National Oil Corporation estimates oil blockades have cost the Libyan economy $10bn this year (Credit: Azahar Photography/Shutterstock) The recovery of oil production in Libya is rapidly gathering pace, at the end of a year in which civil war effectively shuttered the industry, cutting off a key source of revenue for the country.State-owned National Oil Corporation (NOC) declared in late October the “comprehensive ending of blockades in all Libyan fields and ports” as it lifted a force majeure on the last of country’s oil infrastructure to have been shut down during the conflict.Lifting of the blockades follows a formal truce between the rival groups – the incumbent administration of Prime Minister Fayez al-Serraj and the Libyan National Army (LNA) led by Khalifa Haftar – that has allowed the country to begin ramping up oil production and export activities once more.Oil revenues became central to Libya’s latest civil conflict, with opposition leader Haftar demanding a greater share of the profits for the east of the country, away from the capital Tripoli where they are controlled by the government and central bank. Doubts over true pace of recovery in Libya oil industryAccording to Reuters news agency, industry sources claim Libya’s oil output rose to about 850,000 barrels per day (bpd) in early November. NOC has said it expects production to exceed one million bpd by the end of this month.Analysts have questioned the accuracy of these projections, however, with researchers at Rystad Energy estimating production levels of one million bpd will not be realised until February 2021.“With each day, there are reports that production keeps climbing, but we believe these estimates have been exaggerated and represent oil production ‘capacity’ coming online, rather than ‘real’ production numbers,” Rystad notes.During November, the group expects Libya’s oil production to average around 750,000 bpd.Either way, the country is undergoing a “remarkably swift build-up” of its output capacity, which effectively ground to a standstill for much of the year as blockades were deployed at oilfields and port terminals.Reports suggest NOC is targeting production levels of around 1.6 million bpd by the end of next year – roughly the same level as prior to the toppling of former leader Muammar Gaddafi nine years ago.Maintenance of key infrastructure is likely needed, says Rystad, given the long period of inactivity – a key reason for its more cautious estimate for production revival.“The ramp-up from the El Sharara oilfield is estimated to be slower due to lack of maintenance during the prolonged shutdown,” says Rystad analyst Nishant Bhushan, referring to one of the country’s most productive oilfields, where force majeure was lifted on 11 October.“Currently, we see Libya reaching one million bpd only by early February 2021, as maintenance and work-over needs to be sufficiently conducted across all the fields and oil transport pipelines.”center_img Oil production in the country effectively ground to a halt this year as key infrastructure was targeted by blockades amid civil warlast_img read more

Should Michael Gove’s tough love for the countrywide worry rural agents?

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Should Michael Gove’s tough love for the countrywide worry rural agents? previous nextHousing MarketShould Michael Gove’s tough love for the countrywide worry rural agents?The DEFRA minister’s interview with the Knight Frank blog warns of more change for rural economy after Brexit as direct payments to farmers are phased out.Nigel Lewis8th June 20180717 Views Rural agents could soon be in for a rough ride after Brexit if Michael Gove’s comments this week to Knight Frank’s blog are anything to go by.Tipped to become Home Secretary when Amber Rudd resigned recently, he was pipped to the post by former housing minister Sajid Javid.But Gove now has big reforms for the rural economy in his sights after the UK exits the EU next year.During the interview with Knight Frank’s Andrew Shirley for the estate agent’s blog, Gove said he was listening to farmers, but that the old system of direct payments was outdated and that he wanted a future farming policy that works for everyone, “including consumers and environmentalists,” he said.But Gove’s comments may signal difficulties ahead for agents who sell agricultural land, estates and rural properties.The keen brexiteer makes it clear that he believes the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy has not been good for the countryside, has discouraged entrepreneurial behaviour and, Knight Frank points out,  has helped prop up unprofitable businesses.“There is no doubt the current system of direct payments has held back the industry,” says Gove.“In many cases these payments have raised land prices and rents and stifled innovation.”But rural prices have been resistant to Brexit jitters so far, only easing off 3% over the past few months, Knight Frank says, prompted by demand outstripping supply in many areas of the UK as farmers and investors pile into the green stuff, and the generous tax reliefs and subsidies still on offer to farmers, despite Gove’s plans for change.knight frank Michael Gove amber rudd rural property Sajid Javid June 8, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

HouseSimple offers vendors a free ‘no catch’ service

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » HouseSimple offers vendors a free ‘no catch’ service previous nextAgencies & PeopleHouseSimple offers vendors a free ‘no catch’ serviceOffer is being kicked off in Yorkshire and NW and agency says it has already tested the ‘no fee’ approach and seen listings increase five-fold.Nigel Lewis27th June 201901,977 Views Hybrid estate agent HouseSimple has launched an offer on its website to sell homes for free and without any commission which is to debut in Yorkshire and the NW but eventually go nationwide.The offer appears not to be a PR stunt and has been launched with a tagline of ‘seriously, it’s on the house’ but with no published end date.HouseSimple’s marketing move also appears to be a response to competitor HouseShop, which is offering a similar deal and points to a ‘race to the bottom’ as online and hybrid agents fight for leads.Online agents have form using this ‘free offers’. When easyProperty first launched four years ago it gave the first 200 people to sell their homes via the company a free service.After registering with HouseSimple for an appointment, potential vendors are offered the free service which includes portal listings, photos and floorplans, negotiation and sales progression, a valuation, local property expert, for sale board, online dashboard and a service that operates until 8pm.Referral incomeThe hybrid agency is hoping to make money from passing on leads from its customers to third party suppliers including for mortgages, EPCs, conveyancing and landlord insurance.But the offer makes no mention of viewings, which the company has always charged extra for at £35 a viewing and £50 for a key-holding service, although its ‘free’ offer says that there is ‘no catch’.Sam Mitchell (left), chief executive officer at Housesimple, says: “It’s time for change in estate agency. We believe selling a property should be a great experience and that’s why we are making it simple, transparent and free.“The ability to sell a home through advertised listings and professional support, without paying any estate agent fees, is unique in the UK. Housesimple is the only company to offer this service and we expect it will quickly become the most popular way to sell a property.“This is a bold move but one that has been tested. Within just six months of trialling this offer we’ve increased our property listings 5-fold and are now one of the leading agents by listings in cities like Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester.”House Simple was established in 2007 and currently has 1,307 homes for sale on Rightmove and 15 properties to rent.HouseSimple hybrid estate agency June 27, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Countrywide and LSL problems help accelerate high street branch closures

first_imgA run on estate agency branches shutting up shop has contributed to a significant increase in the number of high street units being closed down across the UK. latest research shows.The report by PwC and the Local Data Company reveals that estate agencies are the fourth largest category of high street closures at 143 during the first six months of the year.This is significantly higher than last year and may be attributable in part to the closure programme initiated by both LSL and Countrywide.In February this year it was revealed that 43 Your Move and Reeds Rains branches were to close, while Countrywide has been making an undisclosed number of branch closures.The PWC/LDC research puts estate agency branches below restaurants, pubs and clothing shops for closures, but ahead of charity shops, banks and fast food restaurants.During the first half of the year 2,868 shops closed on the UK’s top 500 high streets, or 16 a day, the reports shows.“In our experience, retailers are being that much more cautious and risk averse as far as both planning for new store openings and in making decisions across their existing property portfolios,” says Lucy Stainton, Head of Retail and Strategic Partnerships at The Local Data Company.“The reality is that UK retail space will continue to look very different over the coming years, and this is demonstrated by the sheer number of stores opening and closing on an ongoing basis.”   estate agency branches high street closures September 12, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
