Seadrill Limited announces that Seadrill New Finance Limited (the “Issuer”), a subsidiary of the Company, has agreed to extend the existing forbearance agreement announced on 11 February 2021 with respect to the 12.0% senior secured notes due 2025 (the “Notes”) with certain holders of the Notes (the “Note Holders”).

 

Pursuant to the forbearance agreement, as extended, the consenting Note Holders have agreed not to exercise any enforcement rights with respect to the Issuer and any subsidiary of the Issuer which is an obligor under the Notes to, or otherwise take actions in respect of, certain events of default that may arise under the Notes as a result of, amongst other things, the Issuer not making the semi-annual 4% cash interest payment due to the senior secured noteholders on 15 January 2021 in respect of their Notes and the filing of Chapter 11 cases in the Southern District of Texas by the Company and certain of its consolidated subsidiaries (excluding the Issuer and its consolidated subsidiaries) until and including the earlier of 10 March 2021 and any termination of the forbearance agreement.

 

The purpose of the forbearance agreement is to allow the Issuer and its stakeholders more time to negotiate on the heads of terms of a comprehensive restructuring of its balance sheet. Such a restructuring may involve the use of a court-supervised process.

  Elton Group will invest approximately $121 million (FCfa 70 billion) as the concessionaire of the gas terminal at the Autonomous Port of Dakar, signifying the company’s growing role in Senegal’s gas-powered energy transition.   The multi-phased project will involve the construction of a gas terminal for the production, storage, regasification and distribution of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), featuring a storage capacity of 140,000 m³.   “The objective of the gas terminal will be to provide a logistical solution by providing LNG to the users that are energy producers, industries, cement plants, mining companies, LNG-powered vessels and neighboring countries,” said Abderrahmane Ndiaye, President of Elton.     In addition to strengthening the domestic gas value chain, the project will generate indirect and direct employment through its construction and operation. It will also represent one of the first projects of its kind in the region.    “Indeed, it would be the first port able to accommodate ships using LNG as fuel, which will give it a significant competitive advantage over other ports in the sub-region,” added Ndiaye.   Elton is a Senegalese petroleum distribution company with operations in Senegal and Gambia.

  PGS has been awarded a high-fidelity 3D exploration program by a supermajor offshore Egypt.   The survey will be acquired using an Extended Long Offset (ELO) configuration with Ramform Tethys towing a wide multi-sensor GeoStreamer spread with an additional source vessel located several kilometers ahead. This will enable efficient recording of offsets up to 16 kilometers critical for imaging deeper complex exploration targets. The source vessel will be towing a specially designed low frequency source.   The innovative ELO survey design combines optimal spatial sampling for better subsurface imaging together with long offset acquisition for accurate velocity model building. ELO is a cost competitive and efficient configuration compared to other solutions for imaging deep targets.   “We are very pleased to be awarded this contract, which secures PGS vessels to operate in Egyptian waters until May 2021, building on an extended campaign for several super majors since July 2020. In a rapidly changing energy market, exploration seismic requires increasingly advanced survey designs, such as the ELO configuration, to generate high quality seismic data in complex geologies.,” says Nathan Oliver, EVP Sales & Services of PGS.   Source: Africa Petroleum   Join our mailing list here We are #1 on Google and Bing for the "Largest Mobile Energy Network" Come join our community!

  Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi, and the President General Manager of the Algerian state company SONATRACH, Toufik Hakkar, met at the Eni headquarters in San Donato Milanese to take stock of common activities and sign various agreements in the exploration and production, research and development, decarbonization and training fields. These agreements mark a further step forward in strengthening the partnership between the two companies.   The first of the agreements signed aims to implement an ambitious program for the relaunch of exploration and development activities in the Berkine basin region and provides for the creation of a gas and crude oil development hub through a synergy with existing MLE-CAFC installations. This agreement is part of the process for the finalization of a new hydrocarbon contract in the basin, under the aegis of the new Algerian oil law which came into force in December 2019.   Claudio Descalzi and Toufik Hakkar also signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the development of the partnership between Eni and Sonatrach in the new technologies sector, with a focus on renewable energy, biofuels and hydrogen. This agreement aims to strengthen the cooperation already in place between the two companies in the technological field and continue the decarbonization path undertaken to support the transition towards a low carbon future.   Eni and Sonatrach also agreed to collaborate in other sectors such as staff training, through the signing of an agreement that provides for cooperation between Eni Corporate University and the Institut Algerien du Petrole for the implementation of training programs in the Upstream and new technologies related to the energy transition fields.   At the end of the meeting, Eni’s CEO thanked the PDG and the members of the Sonatrach delegation for their constant collaboration and relationship: “Today’s agreements represent the commitment made by our companies to strengthen a historic partnership, in compliance with a shared strategy to accelerate the development of decarbonization projects as part of our commitment of achieving our carbon neutrality goal.”   Eni has been present in Algeria since 1981 where is operator in 48 mining permits. With an equity production of 90,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, Eni is the main international company operating in the country.   Source: Africa Petroleum   Join our mailing list here We are #1 on Google and Bing for the "Largest Mobile Energy Network" Come join our community!
