(Bloomberg) -- Kuwait plans to boost production from Canadian shale deposits by two thirds and increase output of natural gas in Australia as the OPEC member ramps up efforts to find and develop overseas deposits of the fuel.The international upstream arm of state-owned Kuwait Petroleum Corp. sees output of almost 20,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day at its Canadian shale gas project by year-end, up from 12,000 currently, Sheikh Nawaf Saud Al-Sabah, acting chief executive officer, said in an interview in Kuwait City.“It will rise to about 60,000 or so once we fully develop it, which will be in the mid-2020s,” he said. “We’re just beginning to understand its potential.”In Australia, the company known as Kufpec won exploration rights to three new blocks in February and April. It’s producing almost 40,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day in that country and aims to raise output and produce more liquefied natural gas for export, Al-Sabah said, without specifying targets.Kuwait has long planned to increase its global capacity to produce gas as well as oil. The Persian Gulf nation currently can pump as much as 3 million barrels a day of crude from its wholly owned fields, and KPC targets a daily capacity of 4 million by next year. As a member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, however, Kuwait has pledged to cap its oil output as the group seeks to balance the market and prop up crude.Like many energy producers, Kuwait sees gas as crucial to future growth. Gas use is seen rising faster than demand for oil and coal as policies shift toward lower carbon emissions. The amount of new gas-production capacity investments this year could set a record, according to consultant Wood Mackenzie Ltd.In Alberta, Canada, Kufpec plans with its joint-venture partner Chevron Corp. to start developing the Waskahigan and East Kaybob areas, drilling the first of more than 370 wells over 10 years. The areas are part of the Kaybob Duvernay project producing shale gas and natural gas liquids.“We continue to look for gas prospects in Australia,” Al-Sabah said. Kufpec partnered with Woodside Petroleum Ltd. at one of its blocks there, and Al-Sabah’s company is exporting gas via Woodside’s Wheatstone LNG facility. Kufpec sells half its production from there under long-term agreements.Buyers’ Market“The other half is sold with a break clause that allows us to take those molecules to Kuwait if and when we need it,” he said. “Right now the LNG market is essentially a buyers’ market, so it doesn’t make sense for us to break a long-term contract” just to sell to KPC when it can get competitive pricing elsewhere, he said.LNG producers have feared that a massive build-out of new export projects, which began a decade ago, will outpace consumption growth and leave cargoes looking for homes. Spot prices have already tumbled since last fall and are at a steep discount to LNG sold on long-term, oil-linked contracts.Kufpec, known formally as Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Co., may supply KPC when the global market tightens, possibly by the mid-2020s, Al-Sabah said.More from the interview:The company has total assets of 3.4 billion dinars ($11.2 billion) and is well-funded right now for its current plans“We need one or two more strategic acquisitions over the next couple of years to close our strategic gap” Kufpec currently pumps 120,000 barrels a day of oil equivalent and plans to reach 150,000 by 2020It wants to help tap Kuwait’s “tremendous” shale gas reserves at some point\--With assistance from Anthony DiPaola and Mohammed Aly Sergie.To contact the reporter on this story: Fiona MacDonald in Kuwait at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Nayla Razzouk at email@example.com, Bruce Stanley, Helen RobertsonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

The world's biggest liquefied natural gas (LNG) producers including Shell, Total and Petronas are increasingly selling from global supply pools instead of dedicated projects as buyers leverage a fuel surplus to force ever more flexible deals. This marks an accelerated turning from traditional long-term contracts that lock customers into taking regular volumes from specific projects under oil-linked pricing formulas. "A more dynamic and liquid LNG market, and the need for greater flexibility by traditional LNG buyers, is providing opportunities for shipping optimisation and trading, and enabling new entrants such as LNG traders," said Saul Kavonic, head of energy research for Australia at Credit Suisse.

SHANGHAI/SINGAPORE, April 5 (Reuters) - China's independent gas distributor and terminal operator ENN Group is beefing up its global business via new supply deals for liquefied natural gas (LNG) to meet strong Chinese demand and to grow its young trading team, a company executive said. ENN said on Friday it signed a heads of agreement (HOA) for 10 years of supply from Australia's Woodside Petroleum, the fourth supply pact the private company has announced so far. ENN started up its first LNG import facility in China in October.
Chevron Canada Ltd and Woodside Energy Ltd have applied for a new license for their Kitimat LNG plant in northern British Columbia that could see it nearly double in size to produce 18 million tonnes per annum (mtpa), Chevron said on Wednesday. The companies submitted the application to Canada's National Energy Board on Monday, with a revised plant design that may include up to three LNG trains, instead of two. "Chevron and Woodside have re-evaluated the originally proposed 2-train, 10 MPTA LNG plant development concept, with a focus on improving Kitimat LNG cost of supply competitiveness relative to other global LNG projects," Chevron said in a statement.
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) will become a big part of China-U.S. trade once tensions are properly resolved between the two countries, a senior executive from China National Offshore Oil Corp (CNOOC) said on Wednesday. LNG will also continue to dominate China's natural gas imports, already accounting for 60 percent of its gas imports last year, said CNOOC Vice President Li Hui on the sidelines of the LNG2019 conference in Shanghai.

Royal Dutch Shell said on Tuesday it will start drilling an exploration well in a block off Bulgaria's Black Sea coast next month for oil and gas. Shell has teamed up with Spain's Repsol and Australia's Woodside Energy after sealing a contract with Bulgaria in 2016 for deepwater exploratory drilling as part of Sofia efforts to end its almost complete reliance on Russia's natural gas supplies. It is Shell's only upstream project in Bulgaria.
Asian spot prices for liquefied natural gas (LNG) broke below the $5 per million British thermal unit (mmBtu) mark this week following a 13-week price slide that reflects the absence of growth in demand or any major outages. Spot prices for May delivery to Northeast Asia (LNG-AS) dropped 80 cents to $4.65 per million British thermal units (mmBtu) this week according to traders although there were few actual transactions with Asia's biggest buyers, Japan, Korea or China. Asian LNG spot prices are now at their lowest level since May 2016 and close to the lowest point in Refinitiv records going back to 2010 of $4.00 per mmBtu, which was reached in April 2016.
Industry executives warned that the LNG sector is getting too reliant on Chinese demand for the fuel, arguing that broadening the market is crucial at this moment in time

Investing.com - Asian equities were mixed in morning trade on Monday after U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the central bank is not in “any hurry” to change interest rates levels again.
Norway's trillion-dollar sovereign wealth fund, the world's biggest, will sell its stakes in oil and gas explorers and producers but still invest in energy firms that have refineries and other downstream activities, according to a government plan. The proposal announced on Friday said the fund's stakes in integrated companies, such as Royal Dutch Shell, ExxonMobil and other majors involved in everything from exploration to selling fuel at the roadside, would not be sold. The state, which has built its wealth on the back of North Sea oil and gas reserves, also has no plan to sell its direct stake in Norwegian energy firm Equinor or its direct holdings in Norwegian oil and gas fields.
Western Australia's environment authority wants big projects to offset their carbon emissions to help curb global warming, a proposal resource companies said could deter investment in the natural gas-rich state. The state Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) said on Thursday new projects, which could include fertiliser and power plants as well as liquefied natural gas (LNG) export sites, that generate more than 100,000 tonnes per year of carbon dioxide would be required to buy credits to offset their emissions in order to pass the authority's assessment process.
