Here are a few examples describing or introducing some of my recent energy journalism, copywriting and other corporate communication work, which I have completed for various clients during the month of April 2017.
Anadarko in Africa
This feature looks at the activities of Anadarko Petroleum in Africa, which ranks amongst the world’s largest independent exploration and production companies, with 1.72 billion barrels of proven reserves at the end of 2016. It has made significant discoveries in Africa, with work in Algeria, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Kenya, Mozambique and South Africa. Anadarko is the largest foreign oil producer in Algeria and, with its partnerships, is currently producing oil from three mega projects in the Sahara Desert.

Pipeline Gas Journal
Egypt’s dash for gas
This feature looks at major gas discoveries during the 1990s and this decade, have enabled a shift towards gas power generation at the expense of oil and coal. In 2005, Egypt’s reserves of natural gas were estimated at 66 trillion cubic feet (Tcf), the third largest in Africa, and probable reserves are estimated at near double, at more than 120 Tcf. Nevertheless, rising demand of 7 percent a year, the result of rising population and industrialisation, is being met with rising imports of LNG via two leased Floating Storage and Regasification Units (FSRUs). LNG imports climbed from 2.8 million tonnes in 2015 to 6 million tonnes in 2016 and may peak at 6.6million tonnes this year, after which recent exploration successes will translate into increased gas production. Current forecasts envisage a gas deficit beginning to develop around 2021 which rises sharply from 2029.
Israel Pipeline Ambitions
Israel’s desire for increased energy security, alongside the opportunity of importing gas through the planned Arish-Ashkelon gas-pipeline in the 1990s, encouraged the adoption of gas. Between 2008 and 2012 the Arish –Ashkelon pipeline brought Egyptian gas to Israel and LNG imports began in 2013 via the offshore Hader Deepwater LNG Terminal.
