Routes to lower aviation emissions
Ross Mitchell, Vice President of Strategy and Business Development at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group company MHI RJ Aviation Group (MHIRJ), echoes the positive stance of IATA, saying “there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about 2023”. MHIRJ provides support services for the aircraft industry, and for Mitchell, the first signs of a return to growth are often found at the supply base, by looking at changing trends in manufacturing and service provision. Aircraft makers Airbus and Boeing saw rising orders in 2022, after reductions in 2020-21. MHI has also seen rising demand for its short- and medium-range engine components for commercial aircraft, leading to a decision in early 2022 to expand its aero engines plant in Nagasaki. Elsewhere in Japan, it also expanded capacity at its aero engine maintenance shop in Komaki City in March 2023, in response to rising global demand for maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services. While advances in manufacturing will play a role in guiding aviation toward net zero by 2050, no single technological innovation can secure the success of the sector in reducing emissions, according to Hiroyuki Tanaka, an aviation expert at MHI. Instead, a combination of aircraft, engine and operational efficiencies, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), carbon offsets, hydrogen and electrification will all be part of the solution. Read More

TotalEnergies Steps up Sustainable Aviation Fuel Production

TotalEnergies is stepping up production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and low carbon energies of its Grandpuits site. These investments reflect the Company’s ambition to develop low carbon energies and the circular economy, and consist of:

The doubling of SAF production at Grandpuits, bringing the site’s annual production capacity to 285,000 tons, i.e. more than double the capacity announced in 2020. This new investment responds to the gradual increase in minimum SAF shares mandated by the EU, and set at 6% for 2030. The development of low carbon energies at the Grandpuits zero-crude platform, with the construction of a biomethane production unit with annual capacity of 80 gigawatthours (GWh), equivalent to the annual demand of 16,000 people. It will be supplied with organic waste from the biorefinery, and will prevent the emission of almost 20,000 tons of CO2 every year. The unit strengthens TotalEnergies’ position as leader in biogas production in France.
“The zero-crude platform at Grandpuits will be a major French site for the production of sustainable aviation fuel, which is the most effective solution for immediately cutting CO2 emissions from air transport. These new projects further strengthen the site’s conversion, toward sustainability, decarbonization and the circular economy,” said Bernard Pinatel, President, Refining & Chemicals at TotalEnergies. The Company has also noted the decision taken by its partner Corbion not to pursue the bioplastic production project, which will now be discontinued.

Masdar solar plant in Belize

With 400 kilowatts of solar panels and 600 kilowatt hours of battery storage, the system is mainly powered by solar energy, with a standby diesel generator to provide power during the wet season. The plant will save Belize almost 200,000 liters of diesel fuel and avoid around 500 tonnes of CO2 emissions yearly.

Electricity from the mini-grid is powering homes, schools, clinics, water pumping facilities and tourist operations. Before it was installed residents had endured 30 years of intermittent or no electricity, said Community leader Finity Muschamp. “Masdar has transformed our community in one of the most impressive manners that Indian Creek has ever seen,” he said. That transformation has been achieved by providing the villages with access to clean, reliable electricity, thanks to the Belize Rural Electrification Project (BREP), delivered by Masdar through the UAE-Caribbean Renewable Energy Fund. The US$50 million UAE-Caribbean Renewable Energy Fund (UAE-CREF) was launched at Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week 2017 as a partnership between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC), Masdar and ADFD, the UAE’s leading financial institutions spearheading national and global development projects.

WTI Crude Prices Lower

Crude oil inventories in the United fell this week by 1.710 million barrels, the American Petroleum Institute (API) data showed on Tuesday, with analysts expecting a 1.5 million barrel increase. The total number of barrels of crude oil gained so far this year is more than 38 million barrels.
This week, SPR inventory dropped for the tenth week in a row as another 1.8 million barrels of congressionally mandated crude oil was sold during the week ending June 2. There are now 353.6 million barrels—the lowest amount of crude oil in the SPR since September 1983. U.S. crude oil production fell during the week ending May 26, to 12.2 million bpd. U.S. production is now 900,000 bpd lower than the peak production seen in March 2020, and just 300,000 bpd higher than this time last year. Read More

EIA Boosts U.S. Oil Production Forecast
U.S. crude oil production could gain 720,000 barrels daily this year, up from a previously forecast growth rate of 640,000 bpd, according to the latest edition of the Energy Information Administration’s Short-Term Energy Outlook. Demand for crude in the U.S., however, is expected to weaken, according to the EIA, because of lower consumption of distillate fuels. That expectation, in turn, is based on a projection for lower gross domestic product growth this year. According to the EIA, the U.S. economy will only expand by 1.3% this year, slowing down further to 1% in 2024. That’s a downward revision from the previous edition of the STEO, when the EIA predicted economic growth of 1.6% for this year and 1.8% for next year. Read More

Oracle Power PLC (AIM: ORCP), announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between its subsidiary Oracle Energy and PetroChina International (Middle East) Company Limited (“PCME”) for cooperation and joint development of commercial avenues for Oracle Energy’s planned Green Hydrogen Project (or the “Project”) in Sindh, Pakistan. PCME has agreed to arrange the potential offtake for the Green Hydrogen output and carbon credits from the Project. PCME has vast experience in trading of oil across the world and is desirous to explore and develop its business through new energy sources such as green hydrogen.

Memorandum of Understanding

Oracle Energy and PCME signed the MoU to jointly cooperate, on a non-binding basis, in the commercialisation of the Project, with Oracle Energy to supply and deliver Green Hydrogen to PCME from it. PCME will arrange offtake for the Green Hydrogen and arrange for trade of associated carbon credits, after establishing viability through analysis of feasibility reports of the Project and subject to price, quality and its board’s approval. PCME shall have the right of first refusal (ROFR) to enter into a mutually agreed long term or spot cargo(es) contract to purchase all or part of the Green Hydrogen and carbon credits from the Project. Oracle Energy shall, prior to financial close, ask PCME to meet the best offer for a long-term purchase of all or part of the Green Hydrogen, with or without the carbon credits. In the event that PCME declines to meet the best offer, the ROFR for PCME shall lapse. Furthermore, PCME will have the ROFR to match the best offer received by Oracle Energy in relation to any available spot cargoes and/or any available carbon credits which have not been agreed to be sold/traded through any long-term agreement signed before financial close. The MoU is effective from 2 June 2023 and is valid for five years from the date when the Green Hydrogen is first produced from the Project, with the option of mutually extending the MoU. The MOU signing was witnessed by a representative from State Grid Corporation of a China, which recently signed an agreement with Oracle Energy through CET, its subsidiary, to be a potential investor and has commenced work on studies.

The most optimistic scenario for reducing aviation emissions by 2050 eliminates about 70% of total CO₂ emissions. The most effective steps to reduce emissions in the next three decades are improving engine and aircraft efficiency, broader adoption of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), and optimizing aircraft operations both in the air and on the ground. However, these solutions, together with a small contribution from new green aircraft powered by hydrogen or electricity, can only eliminate about 70% of 2050 emissions (see Figure 1). That estimate assumes that government policies shift to favor development of SAF over alternative-fuel development for other industries. It also assumes that the projections for life cycle CO₂ emissions reduction of 65% to 90% across different SAF conversion technologies (pathways) are validated over time. The enormous cost of developing and deploying those solutions poses another challenge: higher prices for air travel. Our research shows the cost of decarbonizing will start increasing ticket prices as soon as 2026. That trend is likely to trim 3.5% of forecasted global demand by 2030. As the fundamental dynamics of the business shift, leadership teams will be forced to rethink their business models. The damage could be severe for companies that fail to anticipate change. Those that take a pragmatic view of decarbonization goals today will be best prepared to navigate the turbulent transition ahead. Read More
