first_imgLundin also extended the expected plateau production period from the Greater Edvard Grieg Area by a further year to late 2023 Edvard Grieg reserves increased by 50 million barrels of oil equivalent. (Credit: Lundin Energy) Lundin Energy has increased the reserve estimate for the Edvard Grieg oil field located in production licence PL 338, in the Utsira High area of the Norwegian North Sea, by 50 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMboe).The 17% increase in the reserve estimates increases the gross 2P ultimate recovery for the field to 350MMboe.Lundin said it has also extended the expected plateau production period from the Greater Edvard Grieg Area, which also comprises the Solveig Phase 1 and Rolvsnes Extended Well Test (EWT) developments, by a further year to late 2023.Lundin Energy COO Nick Walker said: “Since Edvard Grieg first oil in 2015, the field has year on year exceeded our expectations both from a reservoir as well as an operational performance perspective.“What has been achieved at Edvard Grieg epitomises the best of Lundin Energy, through the application of subsurface expertise, cutting-edge technology and operational excellence, combined with a determined and entrepreneurial approach to operatorship.“This reserve increase and plateau extension is incredibly value accretive, as it comes with limited additional investment. I’m confident, that as we continue to explore in the Greater Edvard Grieg Area, it will grow further and drive material additional value to the partnership and Norway.”New reserves estimates represent 90% increase from the original PDOThe latest 2P reserves estimates for the Edvard Grieg oil field represent an increase of 90% from the original plan for development and operation (PDO).In addition, the gross 2P ultimate recovery for the Greater Edvard Grieg Area is now increased to 410MMboe.The increase also represents a five-year extension from the original PDO.Recently, Lundin Energy Norway awarded EPCI contract to Aker Solutions to install high-voltage electrical boilers on its Edvard Grieg platform in the North Sea.Aker will be responsible for the integration of a high-voltage electrical boiler package as part of the electrification of the platform.The gas turbines that generate heat on the platform will be replaced by electrical boilers to fully electrify the Edvard Grieg that will see a reduction of approximately 200,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.last_img read more

One in three letting agents report rent increases

first_imgA higher number of letting agents witnessed rents increase between May and June, newly released figures from the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) has shown.According to the data, 36 per cent of letting agents that are members of ARLA reported that rents rose month-on-month – the highest number since tracking began.Letting agents in the East Midlands saw the highest number of gains, with 48 per cent of ARLA agents reporting a rise. In contrast, just 17 per cent of agents in Wales saw a hike in the monthly rent.The report suggested that rents are being forced higher by an ongoing supply-demand imbalance, particularly in London where it states that “worryingly” there were only 118 rental properties managed in June, compared to 134 in May – a fall of 12 per cent.“It is worrying to see so many agents reporting an increase in the cost of rent over the last six months, especially considering so many people rent as a way to bridge the gap whilst they save to get onto the property ladder,” said David Cox (left), Managing Director, ARLA.He added, “Findings like this continue to prove that the housing crisis isn’t going to disappear anytime soon and it will take a while before we see steps heading in the right direction. The impact of the Chancellor’s reductions to the amount of tax relief buy-to-let investors can claim – announced in the Emergency Budget this month – will affect the cost of renting over the coming months and is likely to mean it will take even longer to see any improvement in affordability in the private rented sector.”Separate research carried out by the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) has found that following the announcement in relation to the changes to mortgage interest relief for landlords, which will start to come into effect from 2017, some 65 per cent of landlords are now considering increasing rents.Alan Ward, Chairman of the RLA, commented: “The reality is that the Chancellor’s belief that rental property is taxed more favourably than homeowners is simply not correct.”“The belief that landlords should be compared to homeowners is like comparing apples with pears. The two are vastly different. It’s time the Treasury recognised residential landlords as a business,” he added.rent increases letting agents ARLA David Cox August 10, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
