    Sasol Is Said to Plan Sale of Its South Africa Coal Mining Unit

    (Bloomberg) -- Sasol Ltd. is planning to sell its South African coal-mining business, according to people familiar with the matter.The company will begin a formal sales process in the coming weeks, said the people, who asked not to be identified as the information isn’t public yet. The mining business had turnover of 20 billion rand ($1.4 billion) in the 2018 financial year, according to the company’s financial report, mostly from internal sales to Sasol’s other operations.The company is the world’s biggest manufacturer of fuel from coal, an energy-intensive process. Sasol’s coal mines produce about 40 million tons of coal a year, almost entirely for use in its own operations, according to its website.The company would plan to sign a coal-purchase agreement with whoever buys the asset, said one of the people.Sasol announced a long-term review process in November 2017 that would involve disposing of some assets at prices that ensure value for the company, it said in an emailed response to questions, while declining to comment directly on a possible mine sale.“We do not wish to comment at this stage on which assets have been earmarked for divestment, since they form a part of a disciplined and confidential M&A process,” it said. “Sasol will update the market as and when appropriate regarding progress on the asset review process.”The mine sale plan comes as Sasol grapples with cost overruns and delays at its giant U.S. chemicals project. Selling its coal mines may also help Sasol reduce its environmental liabilities at a time when more investors are focusing on how businesses affect climate change.The Lake Charles chemical plant in Louisiana, which is starting up this year, will transform Sasol’s production mix to focus on chemicals. Yet the company has lurched from one setback to the next, with the project now estimated to cost as much as $12.9 billion, about 50% more than initially planned.Sasol’s shares have tumbled 48% in the past 12 months. Besides the cost overruns and startup delays, the company has also twice postponed its annual financial results while it completes an investigation into what went wrong at Lake Charles.The company said in May it would accelerate the previously announced asset sale program. It said on Wednesday the company would “proceed only if there is value for Sasol and we will not sell assets at sub-optimal prices.”To contact the reporters on this story: Loni Prinsloo in Johannesburg at lprinsloo3@bloomberg.net;Paul Burkhardt in Johannesburg at pburkhardt@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: James Herron at jherron9@bloomberg.net, ;Gordon Bell at gbell16@bloomberg.net, Liezel Hill, Amanda JordanFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Oil prices retreated about 2% on Wednesday, extending the previous day's declines after Saudi Arabia said it would quickly restore full production following last weekend's attacks on its facilities and as U.S. crude stockpiles rose unexpectedly. Tension in the Middle East remained elevated, however, after the Saudi Defence Ministry held a news conference, displaying drone and missile debris it said was "undeniable" evidence of Iranian aggression. U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he ordered a major increase in sanctions on Iran in the latest U.S. move to pressure Tehran.

    India plans to invite bids from global firms for the first time for coal mining blocks before end-2019, sources familiar with the matter said, a move that would end Coal India Ltd's near-monopoly for the fuel as the nation tries to cut imports. Coal is among the top five commodities imported by India, one of the world's largest consumers of the fuel. Coal imports are surging after the government failed to open the industry to competition, despite having passed a liberalization policy 19 months ago.

    Saudi Arabia Joins U.S.-Led Coalition to Protect Oil Shipping

    (Bloomberg) -- Saudi Arabia joined a U.S.-led coalition to secure sea lines vital to oil shipping in the Middle East in the aftermath of a devastating attacks on Aramco’s oil facilities.The International Maritime Security Construct’s area of operation covers the Strait of Hormuz, the world’s most critical waterway for oil supplies, the Strait of Bab al-Mandab, the Gulf of Oman and the Persian Gulf. The move aims to support efforts to thwart threats to trade as well as guarantee energy security, the state-run Saudi Press Agency reported.U.S. Seeks Support to Watch Gulf Shipping as Iran Tensions RiseA showdown between Iran and the Trump administration after the U.S. pulled out of the 2015 nuclear agreement with the Islamic Republic has threatened shipping in the region. Attacks on tankers and drones prompted the U.S. to call for a coalition of allies to protect ships passing through the area.About 40% of the world’s seaborne oil travels through the Strait of Hormuz. The U.S. and U.K. have stepped up their military presence in the region amid calls to ensure the waterway remains open.The International Maritime Security Construct task force is headquartered in Bahrain, and its members include the U.S., the U.K., Australia as well as the host country.Shaped like an inverted V, the waterway connects the Persian Gulf to the Indian Ocean, with Iran to its north and the United Arab Emirates and Oman to the south. Its shallow depth makes ships vulnerable to mines, and the proximity to land -- Iran, in particular -- leaves large tankers open to attack from shore-based missiles or interception by fast patrol boats and helicopters.To contact the reporter on this story: Abbas Al Lawati in Dubai at aallawati6@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Shaji Mathew at shajimathew@bloomberg.net, Alaa ShahineFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Oil Slides as Focus Shifts to Quick Return of Saudi Supply

    (Bloomberg) -- Crude declined as investors shifted attention to a speedy return of Saudi Arabia’s crude production amid signals that global inventories are plentiful.Futures dropped 2.1% on Wednesday in New York. The kingdom’s damaged Abqaiq oil facility is now operating at around 40% of its pre-attack levels and the facility should return to about 4.9 million barrels by the end of the month, Aramco Chief Executive Officer Amin Nasser said Tuesday. Meanwhile, the International Energy Agency’s Executive Director Fatih Birol said the oil market remains well supplied with ample stockpiles, despite the weekend attacks.The "Saudi oil minister said production will be back," reassuring supply for the market, said Bob Yawger, director of the futures division at Mizuho Securities USA.Earlier in the session, oil had eased some losses after Saudi Defense Ministry spokesman Turki al-Maliki said Saturday’s attacks on the kingdom’s critical oil infrastructure were “unquestionably sponsored by Iran” and did not originate from Yemen.Iran has denied responsibility for the aerial attack that shut 5% of global supply, with President Hassan Rouhani saying it was carried out by Yemeni rebels fighting the Saudi-led coalition. President Donald Trump said the U.S. will add “some very significant sanctions” and announce them within the next 48 hours.The IEA’s Birol also said its members held about 1.55 billion barrels of emergency oil stocks, which are more than enough to offset any disruption.West Texas Intermediate crude for October delivery dropped $1.23 to settle at $58.11 a barrel at the New York Mercantile Exchange.Brent for November settlement slid 95 cents to end the session at $63.60 a barrel on the ICE Futures Europe Exchange, and traded at a $5.56 premium to WTI for the same month.An Energy Information Administration report showed domestic oil inventories rose by 1.06 million barrels last week, about double what the American Petroleum Institute reported Tuesday.

    Saudi Arabia to restore oil output fully by end of September: energy minister

    Saudi Arabia will restore its lost oil production by the end of September and has managed to recover supplies to customers to the levels they were at prior to weekend attacks on its facilities by drawing from its huge oil inventories. Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman said on Tuesday that average oil production in September and October would be 9.89 million barrels per day and that the world's top oil exporter would ensure full oil supply commitments to its customers this month. "Over the past two days we have contained the damage and restored more than half of the production that was down as a result of the terrorist attack," Prince Abdulaziz told a news conference in the Red Sea city of Jeddah.

    Saudi Arabia Partially Restores Output at Damaged Oil Plant

    (Bloomberg) -- Saudi Arabia attempted to move beyond the worst oil disruption in its history, assuring the world that crude exports won’t suffer, its damaged facility has partially restarted and that production capacity will be back to normal within months.The long-awaited update on Tuesday from the kingdom -- which before the strike pumped almost 10% of the world’s oil -- gives the market much-needed clarity after days of speculation over how severe the damage was at Saudi Aramco’s Abqaiq plant.However, progress has been slower than was initially expected and crude prices remain elevated as traders factor in higher risks for Saudi supply.“During the two past days, we managed to contain the damage by recovering more than half of the production that we had lost during that terrorist attack,” Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman said at a briefing in Jeddah. “The company will be able to meet all its commitments to customers this month by drawing on its crude oil reserves.”Abqaiq is now processing about 2 million barrels a day, Aramco Chief Executive Officer Amin Nasser said. The facility should return to pre-attack levels of about 4.9 million barrels by the end of September, he said.Soon after the weekend attack, officials indicated that the majority of output would be restored within days, with weeks required to get back to full capacity. The outlook became more pessimistic in subsequent days as photos were released showing the scale of the damage at the crucial facility.The minister and CEO assured customers Aramco’s crude exports won’t be reduced this month because it will draw down strategic reserves. The kingdom also temporarily reduced the rate at which domestic refineries process oil by about 1 million barrels a day, making more crude available for shipment overseas.Still, figures provided by the energy minister suggested the kingdom will take months to fully recover from the incident. Full output capacity of 12 million barrels a day will only be available at the end of November, with about 11 million restored by the end of this month, said Prince Abdulaziz. Saudi Arabia aims to pump 9.8 million barrels a day in October, he said, in line with recent months.Houthi rebels in Yemen initially claimed responsibility for the attacks, although the U.S. later blamed Iran. The oil market has been gripped with uncertainty since the plant was hit. The international benchmark jumped 15%, the most on record, on Monday, before tumbling 6.5% after Aramco’s update on Tuesday. It was 0.1% lower at $64.50 a barrel in early Asian trading on Wednesday.Unprecedented DisruptionThat historic price gain underscored the unprecedented nature of the disruption caused by the attack. For decades, Saudi Arabia has been the oil market’s great stabilizer, maintaining a large cushion of spare production capacity that can be tapped in emergencies, such as during the 2011 war in Libya.The suspension of 5.7 million barrels day of Saudi production -- the worst sudden loss in history -- exposed the inadequacy of the rest of the world’s supply buffer. Aramco ramped up offshore fields to maximum to replace some lost production, Nasser said. Customers were also being supplied using stockpiles, though some buyers are being asked to accept different grades of crude, a person familiar with the matter said earlier this week.Beyond the kingdom, other participants in the OPEC+ cuts, such as Russia, Kazakhstan and the United Arab Emirates, could restore a few hundred thousand barrels a day of idled production, but that’s not enough to offset Saudi losses.Escalation ThreatEven as Aramco fixes the damage at Abqaiq, the possibility of further escalation of conflict in the Middle East hangs over the market.Tehran and Riyadh are historic foes backing opposing sides in Yemen’s long-running civil war. The volatile situation in the region finally boiled over earlier this year as U.S. President Donald Trump used sanctions to attempt to choke off all of Iran’s oil exports -- the lifeblood of its economy -- after unilaterally withdrawing from an international nuclear deal.Understanding the Conflicts Leading to Saudi Attacks: QuickTakeSince then, the Persian Gulf, source of about a third of the world’s seaborne oil exports, has been under siege, targeted by air, sea and land. While Trump has shown some reluctance to go to war, there are also few prospects for easing tensions as Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman decides how to respond to the assault.Prince Abdulaziz said he wouldn’t comment on whether Iran was responsible for the attack. The Pentagon is preparing a report on who was to blame and intends to make it public within 48 hours, a U.S. defense official said Tuesday.Houthi rebels in Yemen, who are backed by Tehran, said Monday that oil installations in Saudi Arabia will remain among their targets and their weapons can reach anywhere in the country. Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Tuesday his country won’t negotiate with the U.S. on any level.The threat to key Saudi infrastructure has loomed over the planned initial public offering of Aramco. The state-run company will still be ready for a share sale any time in the next 12 months, Chairman Yasser Al Rumayyan said at the briefing.(Updates with latest oil price in ninth paragraph.)To contact the reporter on this story: Anthony DiPaola in Dubai at adipaola@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: James Herron at jherron9@bloomberg.net, Will KennedyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
