据彭博新闻社9月9日报道,知情人士透露,沙特阿美时下正在考虑一项大胆的举措,向外国投资者开放世界上最大的非常规天然气田之一的贾富拉大气田,沙特阿美正寻求为这个1100亿美元的项目提供资金,以帮助其实现石油销售业务的多元化。


知情人士称,这家国有控股的生产商正在与一家顾问公司合作,为其庞大的贾富拉气田开发项目筹集新股或债券。由于信息保密而要求不具名采访的知情人士称,沙特阿美已开始与包括大型大宗商品交易商在内的潜在投资者进行初步谈判。


知情人士表示,相关讨论尚处于早期阶段,沙特阿美可能会决定寻求其他途径筹集资金,为贾富拉大气田的开发提供资金。 沙特阿美的一名代表拒绝置评。


任何涉及贾富拉大气田的交易都将标志着沙特阿美允许外部投资者有机会持有其上游油气资产的罕见例子。 上世纪90年代末,一些大型石油公司试图帮助沙特阿拉伯开发天然气储量,但以失败告终。 彭博新闻社今年4月报道称,沙特阿美今年早些时候开始对其上游业务进行评估,作为可能采取这一行动的先兆。


据英国石油公司公司称,沙特阿拉伯的天然气储量是阿拉伯世界最大的国家,仅次于卡塔尔。 贾富拉大气田是沙特政府的优先项目,因为他们希望减少对原油出口的依赖。 据估计,贾富拉大气田拥有200万亿立方英尺的丰富原料天然气储量,沙特阿美预计将于2024年开始在那里生产,到2036年前达到每天约22亿标准立方英尺的销售量。

Aramco may open $110B gas project to foreign investors


Saudi Aramco is considering a bold move to open up one of the world’s largest unconventional gas fields to foreign investors, as it looks to fund a $110 billion project to help it diversify from oil sales, people familiar with the matter said.


The state-controlled producer is working with an adviser as it explores raising new equity or debt for its vast Jafurah site, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private. It has started preliminary talks with potential investors including large commodity traders, according to the people.


Deliberations are in the early stages and Aramco could decide to pursue other ways of gathering money to fund the Jafurah development, the people said. A representative for Aramco declined to comment.


Any deal involving Jafurah would mark a rare example of Aramco allowing external investors the chance to hold stakes in its upstream oil and gas assets. Previous attempts in the late 1990s to bring in Big Oil companies to help develop reserves failed. The company began a review of its upstream business earlier this year as a precursor to such a potential move, Bloomberg News reported in April.


Saudi Arabia’s gas reserves are the largest in the Arab world after Qatar, according to BP Plc. The Jafurah field is a priority for the kingdom’s rulers as they look to reduce a reliance on crude exports. The site is estimated to hold 200 trillion cubic feet of rich raw gas, and Aramco expects to begin production there in 2024, reaching about 2.2 billion standard cubic feet per day of sales by 2036.
