Thai firm buys stake in PetroEnergy wind project

PETROENERGY Resources Corp. disclosed on Wednesday the acquisition by a Thai company of the 40% stake held by a Singaporean private equity firm in the listed power developer’s wind energy project in Nabas, Aklan.
PetroEnergy told the local bourse that the acquisition by BCPG Public Co. Ltd. of the stake owned by CapAsia Asean Wind Holdings Cooperatief UA was formally signed on May 16.

The unit, PetroWind Energy, Inc., has a 36-megawatt wind power project on the Western Visayas island called Nabas-1 Wind Power Project under a joint venture with Singapore-based CapAsia (40%), EEI Power Corp. (20%) and PetroGreen Energy Corp. (40%). PetroGreen is a 90%-owned subsidiary of PetroEnergy.

“We welcome BCPG into our network of esteemed partners, as our new shareholder in [PetroWind],” said Milagros V. Reyes, president of PetroEnergy and PetroWind. “We believe that their track record and management expertise will bring greater value to our business,” she added.

BCPG, along with existing the PetroWind shareholders, signed a new shareholders’ agreement governing the company, PetroEnergy said.

Charnvit Trangadisaikul, BCPG senior vice-president, said: “This investment marks our first presence in the Philippines. We are very confident that the partnership between BCPG and PetroGreen would open up a lot of growth opportunities for all partners, both here and in the region.”

He said BCPG was looking forward to expand its investment in renewable energy in the Philippines “and promote sustainability for the country.”

BCPG’s parent company is Thailand-based Bangchak Corp., which is engaged in oil refinery operation and marketing the finished products through its service stations. The company operates three business segments, namely: refinery, marketing and renewable energy in Thailand and globally.

Craig Martin, CapAsia co-chief executive officer, said its participation in the Nabas-1 wind power project had been a successful investment for the firm’s fund.

The P4.5-billion wind facility is made up of 18 wind turbine generators supplied by Gamesa Corporación Tecnológica. The turbines were erected at elevations of 300-500 meters in the foothills of northern Aklan. They straddle the municipalities of Nabas and Malay.

PetroEnergy RE arm reaches power-generation milestone

PETROGREEN Energy Corp. (PGEC), the renewable-energy (RE) arm of publicly listed PetroEnergy Resources Corp. (Perc), has already generated 1-billion kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity over the weekend.

Perc announced on Monday that PGEC reached the 1-billion generation mark on December 2, earlier than expected.

“The early achievement of this generation milestone, despite the relatively short period of the plants’ commercial operation and their modest capacities, owe to the efficient operation by our teams and the good availability of the units to the grid,” PERC President Milagros V. Reyes said.

“We are delighted by this milestone not only for our shareholders and Pgec partners but also for their contribution in reducing wholesale electricity spot market [Wesm] prices, as their must-dispatch character displaces more expensive fossil-fired plants in the Wesm dispatch order,” Reyes added.

PGEC’s power production comes from three RE plants: the 20-megawatt (MW) Maibarara-1 geothermal plant in Santo Tomas, Batangas; the 36-MW Nabas-1 wind project in Aklan; and the 50-MW DC Tarlac-1 solar facility in Tarlac City.

Beginning from their respective commercial operation date—February 8, 2014, for the Maibarara geothermal, June 10, 2015, for the Nabas wind and February 10, 2016, for Tarlac-1—these three facilities contributed 62.52 percent, 23.78 percent, and 13.70 percent, respectively, to the aggregate 1-billion-kWh output reached on December 2.

In Maibarara PGEC (65 percent) is in partnership with Phinma Energy (25 percent) and PNOC Renewables Corp. (10 percent), through the joint-venture firm Maibarara Geothermal Inc. (MGI). In Nabas it holds 40-percent equity in operator PetroWind Energy Inc. (PWEI) with EEI Power (20 percent) and Thailand-based BCPG (40 percent). PetroSolar Corp. (PSC), owner and operator of Tarlac-1 solar, is jointly owned by PGEC (56 percent) and EEI Power (44 percent).

PGEC currently supplies 8.4 percent of wind power and 5.94 percent of solar capacities in the country. MGI’s expected commissioning of the 12-MW Maibarara-2 unit this December will bring the field’s total gross capacity to 32 MW.  PGEC plans to develop an additional 400 MW of renewable-energy capacity in the next five years.

PERC Assistant Vice President Maria Victoria Olivar said that the company’s oil operations also achieved a  milestone.

“Total oil production in the Etame Marin block in offshore Gabon, West Africa, reached 100 million barrels on June 10, 2017, from the start of commercial oil extraction in 2002. Crude-oil production from 12 wells continues unabated in the block’s four oil fields—Etame, Avouma, Ebouri and North Tchibala.”

At end-September this year, Perc posted a 103-percent increase in its total consolidated income amounting to $7.71 million, compared to $3.81 million during the same period in 2016. The net income attributed to PetroEnergy equity holders increased by 227 percent, from $1.28 million in 2016 to $4.18 million in 2017.

The increases in net income and income attributed to equity holders of PERC were mainly driven by the efficient operation of PERC’s three RE projects.

The efficient operations resulted to an increase in the net income of the operating companies: 58 percent for MGI, 25 percent for PSC and 8 percent for PWEI compared to the similar period in 2016.

Slightly higher average crude-oil prices also contributed to the profit increase, with average price reaching $50.35 per barrel for the third quarter compared to $38.08 in the same period last year.

PetroEnergy’s geothermal project cleared for WESM

PETROENERGY Resources Corp. on Friday said its geothermal power unit had secured approval to participate in the wholesale electricity spot market (WESM), paving the way for its commercial operation.

Philippine Electricity Market Corp. (PEMC), which operates the spot market, gave its nod on Dec. 7, 2017 for Maibarara Geothermal Inc. (MGI), which sought the registration of its 12-megawatt (MW) expansion of its geothermal facility in Sto. Tomas, Batangas.

PEMC earlier included Maibarara-2 in its market network model, allowing the facility’s dispatch to be accurately monitored in the spot market.

“The completion of these two critical WESM and grid connection requirements is a significant milestone for MGI as these are technical prerequisites for eventual commercial operations.” MGI President F. G. Delfin, Jr. told the stock exchange.

MGI is a joint venture of PetroGreen Energy Corp. with a 65% stake, Phinma Energy Corp. with 25%, and PNOC Renewables Corp. with 10%. PGEC is the renewable energy holding company of publicly listed PetroEnergy.

Dave P. Gadiano, PetroGreen head of energy trading, said the WESM registration of Maibarara-2 clears the way for the facility to export power to the grid during the commissioning stage.

“The testing and commissioning of Maibarara-2 is estimated to start by middle of December. Export of power to the grid is expected soon after commissioning starts,” he said in a statement.

PetroGreen’s power output comes from three renewable energy plants — the 20-MW Maibarara-1 geothermal plant in Sto Tomas, the 36-MW Nabas-1 wind project in Aklan, and the 50-MWDC Tarlac-1 solar facility in Tarlac City.

MGI’s expected commissioning of the Maibarara-2 unit will bring the field’s total gross capacity to 32 MW. Maibarara-1 started commercial operation on Feb. 8, 2014.

The recent PEMC approvals came after MGI successfully installed and tested, with power grid operator National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP) the remote terminal unit and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) system of Maibarara-2 on Nov. 15.

On Nov. 18, MGI completed with Japan’s Fuji Electric Co., Ltd., the target plate testing of Maibarara-2’s steam, a pre-commissioning activity in which the quality of the steam that will pass through the turbine blades is assessed.

Pedro G. Callos, MGI steamfield manager, said test had shown that the supply steam for Maibarara-2 complies with Fuji Electric’s standards.

Maibarara Geothermal brings online 12-MW plant in Batangas

March 14 (Renewables Now) - Philippines' Maibarara Geothermal Inc has connected to the grid a 12-MW geothermal plant in Batangas province and now prepares to launch commercial operations.

The Maibarara geothermal 2 (M2) facility is the second stage of a project in Santo Tomas, Philippine-based PetroEnergy Resources Corp (PSETongueERC) said in a bourse statement on Monday. Its owner, Maibarara Geothermal, is a joint venture between PetroEnergy’s unit PetroGreen Energy Corp and power generator Phinma Energy Corp (PSETongueHEN).

The M2 plant will now be subject to a series of capability and reliability tests and will undergo a technical inspection needed for the issuance of a certificate of compliance (COC). Maibarara Geothermal will launch commercial operations at the plant after it secures the COC.

Construction of the 10-MW facility, using equipment by Japan’s Fuji Electric (TYO:6504), was initiated in March 2016. The 20-MW Maibarara-1 unit has been operational since 2014.


PetroEnery reports 44% surge in ’17 net income

PetroEnergy Resources Corp. (PERC) yesterday reported a 44-percent surge in its consolidated net income to $8.46 million in 2017 from $5.86 million in the previous year.

PERC attributed this to the higher electricity sales revenue posted by its renewable energy investments.

The group’s revenue from its petroleum operations also jumped by 22 percent in 2017 due to slightly higher oil prices.

“Our 2017 financial performance shows PERC’s growth-driven direction, credited mainly to the efficiency and reliability of our RE (renewable energy) power plant operations,” company president Milagros V. Reyes said in a statement.

Last year, the company’s net income attributed to equity holders reached $.379 million, more than double or 114 percent compared to $ 1.77 in 2016.

PERC’s was originally engaged petroleum exploration and production, having partnered in 1995 with American firm Vaalco Inc. to secure the Etame Offshore oil block in Gabon, West Africa.

Commercial crude started flowing in 2002 after oil was discovered in Etame in 1998.

It diversified into renewable energy development and operation from 2009 to 2010. It’s portfolio now includes interest in the 20-megawatt Maibarara geothermal power project in Batangas, 36-MW Nabas wind power project in Aklan, and a 50-MW Tarlac solar power project.


MGI gets COC for Batangas power station

MAIBARARA Geothermal Inc. (MGI) has secured a Certificate of Compliance (COC) for its 12-megawatts Maibarara-2 power station in Santo Tomas, Batangas.

MGI is a joint venture of PetroGreen Energy Corp. (PGEC, 65 percent), Phinma Energy Corp. (25 percent) and state-owned PNOC Renewables Corp. (10 percent).

PGEC is the renewable-energy holding unit of publicly listed PetroEnergy Resources Corp.

This is MGI’s second geothermal facility approved by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) last April 16.

“The ERC’s approval of Maibarara-2’s COC proves that MGI has fully complied with the technical, operational and financial requirements for the plant’s commercial operations. Our team and partners are proud of this milestone as Maibarara-2, however modest in size, is the first geothermal-power facility to be put up under the Duterte administration and the only geothermal power plant installed in the country since 2014,” MGI President Francisco Delfin Jr. said. Maibarara-2 construction was essentially completed last year along with the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market registration and grid communication protocol requirements set by the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines.

Individual plant-equipment testing started in early-2018, culminating in the synchronization and first delivery of power to the Luzon grid on March 9.

Early this month, the ERC conducted a thorough inspection of Maibarara-2, leading to the eventual COC approval, PGEC Energy Trading Head Dave P. Gadiano said.


...yan slight dip daw Tongue

PetroEnergy expects slight profit dip

PETROENERGY Resources Corp. (PERC) is expecting a slightly lower net income for the first half of 2018 as its wind farm in Nabas, Aklan failed to match its performance during the same period last year, company officials said.

Francisco G. Delfin, Jr., PetroEnergy vice-president, said the company is expecting “a little dip” in its first-semester profit, although recovery is expected in the second half.

“We expect to recover in the second half even if the preliminary figures on the first half are slightly lower than the first half 2017,” he told reporters.

He declined to give PetroEnergy’s expected profit for the first six months, but in the same period last year, the company reported a 180% increase in its consolidated net income to $6.55 million. The company reports its financial data in dollars for ease in accounting for its overseas oil revenues.

He said the growth drivers for the rest of the year are the company’s renewable energy projects, especially its 36-megawatt (MW) Nabas wind project in Aklan.

“As we enter the second half of the year, presumably we will increase generation from our wind farm —the Nabas plant. In fact, that increase has already started,” he said.

Last year’s strong performance was driven by higher income contribution from its renewable energy projects, including the 20-MW Maibarara geothermal power project in Batangas, and the 50-MW solar power project in Tarlac.

Mr. Delfin said the full operations of the 12-MW second phase of Maibarara geothermal plant is among the growth drivers this year.

“And if oil prices continue to remain between the $70-$80 price per barrel, we should be able to sustain the profitability and the revenue of our Gabon operations as well,” he said.

PetroEnergy previously said that its petroleum asset in Gabon, West Africa produces about 16,000 barrels of oil per day from four producing fields.

Carlota R. Viray, PetroEnergy assistant vice-president for finance, said the Nabas wind farm has started to pickup only in June and July, but its output during the early months of the year was slight lower than the previous year’s when the plant experienced strong winds.

PetroEnergy has a total renewable energy power generation portfolio to 118 MW. It expects the installed power capacity to reach 200 MW by 2021, the year when it should have invested a total of P6.755 billion for a number of new and expansion projects.

Ms. Viray said that by 2021 solar power would be the company’s biggest contributor in terms of installed capacity at 80 MW.

She placed wind power’s contribution at 50 MW, with geothermal accounting for 32 MW of the total. She said the remaining capacity would come from several small hydropower projects that the company was studying.

The company declined to disclose details of the proposed hydropower projects because of a non-disclosure agreement it had signed ahead of the final investment decision.

PetroSolar’s 20-MW project secures BoI support

PETROSOLAR Corp. has been awarded a certificate of registration by the Board of Investments (BoI) for its 20-megawatt (MW) solar power project, the second phase of its solar farm in Central Technopark, Tarlac City.

In a disclosure to the stock exchange, PetroEnergy Resources Corp. said PetroSolar obtained the certificate on Sept. 7, 2018. It said the BoI incentive brings the unit closer to obtaining a “confirmation of commerciality” from the Department of Energy. The confirmation allows the solar farm to start construction.

“We are excited by this new investment which will see our solar asset increase in capacity from 50 MW to 70 MWDC (direct current),” said PetroSolar President Milagros V. Reyes.

PetroSolar is a joint venture of PetroGreen Energy Corp. (PGEC)and EEI Power Corp. It owns and operates the 50-MWDC Tarlac-1 solar plant, which started commercial operations in February 2016 as one of the early qualifiers in the government’s solar feed-in-tariff program.

PetroGreen is the renewable energy holding unit of publicly listed PetroEnergy Resources Corp.

Aside from the Tarlac solar facilities, PetroGreen also owns and operates with other partners and operating units the 32-MW Maibarara geothermal project in Batangas and the 36-MW Nabas wind farm in Aklan.

“Despite the current regulatory and market uncertainties, PGEC is pushing through with its calibrated expansion of renewable energy assets in key locations to reach our goal of about 200-400 MW installed capacity in 2-4 years’ time,” said Francisco G. Delfin, Jr., PetroGreen vice-president and chief operating officer.

PetroEnergy’s Gabon oil project secures longer exploitation rights

A CONSORTIUM in Gabon in which PetroEnergy Resources Corp. has participating interest has secured an extension to its exclusive oil exploitation rights in the African country for another 10 years, the Yuchengco-led company said on Wednesday.

PetroEnergy told the stock exchange the government of Gabon and the Etame Marin consortium had successfully executed the amendment to the production sharing contract to three oil fields — Etame, Avouma/Tchibala and Ebouri.

The 10-year extension has two additional five-year extension options.

“Having produced more than 100 million barrels of oil since production started in 2002, the extension of the concession offers opportunities for both the Government of Gabon and the Consortium Partners for additional investments, growth, and revenues,” PetroEnergy said.

PetroEnergy holds a 2.525% participating interest in the Etame Marin block. The other consortium members and their respective participating interests are: Addax Petroleum Etame, Inc. (33.90%); Sasol Gabon S.A. (30.00%); and Operator VAALCO Gabon S.A. (33.575%).

The amendment commits the consortium partners to undertake new drillings and technical studies to be completed within two years from its effectivity.

PetroEnergy said given past production from the block, the consortium was confident that the committed drilling program for two development wells and two appraisal wells would further enhance the field’s long-term commercial value.
