SOCAR offers record-low spot price in Pakistan LNG buy tender

SOCAR Trading has placed the lowest offer into a spot buy tender by Pakistan LNG Ltd for an LNG cargo for delivery in late August, according to a notice posted on the Pakistani company’s website.

SOCAR’s offer for the cargo is about 5.74% of Brent crude oil prices, according to the document.

This works out to about $2.20 per million British thermal units (mmBtu) for the cargo to be delivered over Aug. 27 to 28 and is a record low LNG price secured by the Pakistani company, Pakistan LNG said on its Twitter account.

This is lower than the Asian LNG spot price LNG-AS for August which on Friday was estimated to be about $2.35 per mmBtu.

Three other companies who had technically qualified for the tender placed offers ranging from 7.8% to 10.4% of Brent crude oil prices. They are Gunvor Singapore, PetroChina International Singapore and Trafigura, according to the notice.

The prices are expressed in the document as a “slope” of crude oil prices, a percentage of the Brent crude price, and are typically a pointer for the opaque spot LNG market.

Pakistan LNG has a separate tender to buy two LNG cargoes for delivery in September. That tender closes on Aug. 4.

Corrosion Control for Gas Treating Amines: Technology Leads to Increased Amine Unit Efficiency

Register Now

Accelerated basin drilling activities combined with increased fugitive gas emission capture technologies have increased trace oxygen levels in midstream natural gas. Oxygen present in concentrations even as low 30-50 ppm will cause costly corrosion-related problems in plant operations and processing equipment. One area in the plant most affected by oxygen is the amine unit. Oxygen will degrade MDEA-blended amines to corrosive amino acids and heat-stable amine salts.

Learn how a new technology from BASF combined with innovation from Nalco Water can increase amine efficiency and reduce costs associated with corrosion. This new technology will inhibit the degradation of amines from oxygen attack and control corrosion in process gas, while stabilizing the amine from degradation into bicine and other heat-stable amine salts. Together with Nalco Water’s real-time amine corrosion control program, have been proven to both mitigate oxygen degradation of amine and reduce the overall corrosivity of amine units.
