    • -1-Upstream Oil & Gas Opportunitiesand the West CoastA Personal PerspectiveWarwick BlythExecutive Director28 February 2011
    • Safety Moment -2- Laser Pointers Incident • Swiss doctors reported a case of a boy who bought a 150 mW laser, sold as a "laser pointer," which left him temporarily blind in one eye, and with 20/50 vision in the other eye, after he shone it in a mirror. Source: New England Journal of Medicine ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
    • Safety Moment -3- Laser Pointers • Root Cause Analysis – Lasers classified as pointers are intended to have outputs less than 5 mW total power (Class 3R) – the eyes blink reflex makes this harmless. – Higher-powered (> 5 mW) DPSS-type laser "pointers" have recently become available. – These higher-powered lasers are often packaged in the same pointer-style housings as regular laser pointers, and usually lack the IR filters found in professional high-powered DPSS lasers. • Prevention of Injury – Try to ensure that you always use the lower powered pointers intended for presentation use. – Never look directly into the laser and never point the laser into another person’s eye. – Beware of mirrors and other reflecting surfaces. ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
    • -4-“Upstream” is the front end of the Oil & Gas valuechain GAS OILSource: Petrostrategies ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
    • -5-At $85/barrel oil upstream activities account for almost88% of net margin in the value chainSource: Petrostrategies 2007, adjusted for $85/bbl crude price ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
    • SA Oil & Gas Alliance – Who are we? -6- The South African Oil & Gas Alliance is public/private partnership to develop SA-based upstream suppliers To promote the development of South African-based industry serving upstream needs in the region ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
    • -7- South African upstream activity has two key drivers:• Local Exploration & Production • Support/Supply Services and Equipment into Africa • West Africa • Uganda/Rift Valley • Mozambique ChannelOrange River SOUTH Basin AFRICA Tugela Kudu Durban Basin Ibhubesi Karoo Basin Cape Town Bredasdorp Basin ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
    • -8-West Coast upstream activity Source: Petroleum Agency of South Africa ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
    • -9-Development work on Forest Oil’s Ibhubesi gas fieldcould start in the next 12 months• Offshore gas field about 100km from the coast in ~100m of water.• Discovered in the 1970’s there hasn’t Offshore been a commercial case for developing it.• Awarded production license in September 2009. – 5 Year market development period. Gas Plant• Indications are that they have opted for a gas-to-power concept. – Planning to sign commercial agreement this quarter. Power Plant• ~$2.5 billion offshore development feeding a ~900MW power station near Hondeklipbaai area. ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
    • SA Industry – What’s there? - 10 - South Africa offers a number of attractive propositions to the regional upstream industry Diversified African Supplier Base Upstream Major Logistics Repair & & Distribution Maintenance Centre Hub Attractive Training & Location for Skills Regional Head Development Offices
    • - 11 -Saldanha Bay has a lot of potential as a hub for oil andgas services targeting the West Coast and the region• Natural deep water port – Up to 24m draft• Developed quayside facilities• Road and rail links to Cape Town• International status airport Future oil & gas complex• Established engineering community – Iron ore terminal, Saldanha Steel• Favoured location for an IDZ (SA’s version of a freezone)• Most importantly, lots of available land ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
    • - 12 -The Port of Cape Town lacks space for significantfurther expansion of the oil and gas activities
    • - 13 -The Australian Marine Complex near Perth gives someidea of the potential at Saldanha Bay• Four main precincts: – Shipbuilding/repair – Technology – Support Industry – Fabrication• Services a numbers of industries – Oil and Gas – Marine – Defence – Resource industry. ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
    • SA Industry – What’s there? - 14 - The likely focus for development in Saldanha Bay will be the area around the ore loading quay
    • - 15 -Oil and gas activities are developing quite rapidly inthe Port of Saldanha Bay1. Grinaker Fabrication Facility2. Rig Repair projects3. Oil & Gas Supply Base – Awaiting finalisation of port land lease4. LPG Import Terminal – Out for tender 3 25. Floating Dry Dock(s) – Proposed 16. Manufacturing & Support Industry7. Rig Dry Dock ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
    • - 16 -Grinaker’s world class fabrication facility at SaldanhaBay is scheduled to commence operations in Q3 ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
    • - 17 -Summary of Opportunities• Rig/Ship repair projects •LPG Import Terminal • Dedicated ship repair• West Coast exploration • Growth of facility – deepwater• Supply base start up manufacturing & support channel• Initial fabrication project industry • Rig dry dock• Floating dry dock? • Declaration of IDZ • Ibhubesi construction? 6-18 Months 18-36 Months Longer Term ©2011 SA Oil & Gas Alliance
