Adnoc’s $15 Billion Gas Pipeline Draws BlackRock, GIP Interest

Global Infrastructure Partners and KKR & Co. are among suitors considering bidding for a stake in natural gas pipelines being sold by Abu Dhabi’s state-owned energy giant, people familiar with the matter said.

Australia’s IFM Investors Pty and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan are also weighing offers for a stake in Abu Dhabi National Oil Co.’s gas pipeline unit, according to the people. A deal could value the business at as much as $15 billion including debt, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private.

The oil giant expects to receive first-round bids in mid-February, the people said. Adnoc is seeking to sell as much as 49% of the business through a lease structure, according to the people.

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, is among Persian Gulf oil producers that are opening up their operations to outside investment to attract fresh capital and diversify their economies. Adnoc has raised billions of dollars by bringing in partners for businesses including its refining unit and drilling business.

No final decisions have been made, and there’s no certainty the companies will proceed with firm offers for a stake in the Adnoc gas pipelines, the people said. Representatives for Adnoc, BlackRock, KKR and Ontario Teachers declined to comment. Representatives for IFM and GIP didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

KKR and BlackRock agreed last year to invest $4 billion in Abu Dhabi’s oil pipelines, securing two decades of guaranteed returns. The deal was the first investment by foreign asset managers in the infrastructure of a Middle Eastern government-owned oil producer. Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC Pte also invested in the business later.

Maersk Drilling wins contract extension for low-emissions rig offshore Norway

Maersk Drilling has secured a two-well contract extension from Aker BP for the ultra-harsh environment, low-emission jack-up rig Maersk Integrator. In direct continuation of the rig’s current workscope, Maersk Integrator will move to the Ivar Aasen field offshore Norway to drill two wells, with work expected to commence in October 2020. The extension has an estimated duration of 93 days and a contract value of approximately USD $25.5 million, excluding a potential performance bonus. The contract includes an additional one-well option.

Maersk Integrator is contracted under the terms of the alliance agreement Maersk Drilling entered into with Aker BP and Halliburton in 2017. The tripartite alliance uses a shared incentives model, thereby securing mutual commitment to collaborate to reduce waste and deliver value. Contracts under the alliance are based on market-rate terms but add the possibility of an upside for all parties, based on actual delivery and performance.

“We are thrilled to be able to firm up activities for Maersk Integrator in 2020 by continuing to work closely together with Aker BP in an alliance which is enabling new ways of working across the value chain. The alliance is enhancing efficiency through increased coordination and involvement, and we are starting to see the first tangible results of this. Higher efficiency in itself reduces the CO2 emissions associated with a drilling campaign, and this is further improved by the low-emission upgrades Maersk Integrator will receive before it begins working at Ivar Aasen,” says COO Morten Kelstrup of Maersk Drilling.

Maersk Integrator is an ultra-harsh environment CJ70 XLE jack-up, designed for year-round operations in the North Sea. It was delivered in 2015 and is currently operating offshore Norway for Aker BP. The rig is expected to perform its scheduled Special Periodic Survey in August 2020 and will undergo a series of upgrades to turn it into a hybrid, low-emission rig prior to moving to the Tambar field in September 2020.
