Repsol Announces Third Spanish SAF Production Run (Int'l.)
Repsol
Date: 2021-08-27
In Madrid, Repsol is reporting the production of the first batch -- 5,300 tons -- of sustainable biojet fuel produced from waste on the Spanish market at its Petronor Industrial Complex in Bilbao. The fuel, which meets meets product quality requirements and sustainability conditions in the production, logistics, and marketing chain and will avoid 300 tpy of CO2e emissions.

This is Repsol's third production of SAF biojet in Spain following production at the company's Puertollano and Tarragona refineries, in 2020 and early 2021, respectively. The company's Strategic Plan 2020-2025, calls for the production of 1.3 million tons of sustainable biofuels in 2025 and more than 2 million tons in 2030.

Repsol's Largest Spanish Solar Project Activated (Int'l.)
Repsol
Date: 2021-07-26
Spanish energy giant Repsol reports has activated its largest solar photovoltaic (PV) farm in Spain -- the 264-MW Valdesolar project -- which is expected to be fully operational by Q3, this year. The €200 million ($235 million) solar facility will generate sufficient electric power for 140,000 homes in Badajoz Province and save roughly 210,000 tpy of CO2.

The Valdesolar project follows on the heels of the start-up of Repsol's first PV complex in June -- the 126.6MW Kappa development which is made up of the Perseo Foton 1-3 projects in the Spanish province of Ciudad Real. Along with Valdesolar and Kappa, Repsol is also developing the 204MW Sigma solar project in the southern province of Cadiz.

Repsol Seeks €5.96Bn for Biofuels, Green Hydrogen (Int'l.)
Repsol
Date: 2021-04-05
In Madrid, Spain's Repsol is bidding for a share of Europe's €750 billion ($884 billion) pandemic recovery funds to support projects including new biofuel plants and 'green' hydrogen production made from renewable sources in a pivot away from oil and gas to supplying low-carbon energy.

Repsol has proposed 30 projects which it calculates will need total investment of €5.96 billion. The projects include a plant in partnership with oil giant Saudi Aramco to build in northern Spain, which will produce synthetic fuel for cars, trucks and aircraft using carbon dioxide captured from a nearby refinery, and hydrogen produced from electricity generated from renewables. Another potential candidate is a refinery in southern Spain where Repsol aims to start producing advanced biofuels in 2023. A planned extension to a hydroelectric plant in the northern region of Cantabria has also been included in the proposals. Repsol estimates adding a gigawatt of capacity to the Aguayo hydroelectric facility will cost around €700 million.

Repsol Increasing Aviation Biofuel Production (Int'l. Report)
Repsol
Date: 2021-02-01
Madrid-based integrated energy company Repsol SA is reporting production of the first 10,000 tonnes of aviation biofuel from biomass at its industrial complex in Tarragona, Spain. The company plans to produce additional aviation biofuel at the group's other industrial complexes in Spain.

Use of the fuel is projected to avoid 630 tonnes of CO2 -- equivalent of 55 flights between Madrid and Barcelona. Last August the company reported production of its first batch of biofuel at the Puertollano Industrial Complex.

According to Spain's Integrated National Plan for Energy and Climate, biofuels currently represent the most widely available and used renewable technology in transportation. In certain sectors, such as aviation, biojet fuel produced from biomass or waste is the only existing alternative to fossil fuels and is included in the list of sustainable fuels, according to the Plan.

Repsol Produces Spain's First Aviation Biofuel (Int'l. Report)
Repsol
Date: 2020-08-05
Madrid-based integrated energy company Repsol SA is reporting production of 7,000 tons of aviation fuel made from biomass at its Puertollano Industrial Complex in Ciudad Real. The production is the first in Spain. The first 7,000 tons of aviation fuel made from biomass -- equal to the consumption of 100 Madrid-Los Angeles flights -- has a bio content under 5 pct in order to meet the quality standards established by international specifications. Using the fuel will prevent the release of roughly 400 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere -- equal to 40 Madrid-Barcelona flights.

As previously reported, Repsol is aiming to be zero emissions company by 2050 in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement. To that end, The company recently announced the launch of two major pioneering decarbonization industrial projects at the Petronor refinery. The first project involves the construction of one of the largest plants in the world for producing net zero emissions fuels from CO2 and green hydrogen, generated with renewable energy. This facility will set a new benchmark in Europe thanks to the cutting-edge technology applied and the use of captured CO2 as raw material in the Petronor refinery. The second project is a plant for generating gas from urban waste, which will replace part of the traditional fuels used in Petronor's production process.

In London, the thirteen-member Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) is reporting a $1 billion commitment to support the goals of the Paris Climate Accord -- including investments in carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) and supporting carbon taxes and economic incentives aimed at reducing emissions.

Initially, OGCI will help decarbonize multiple industrial hubs in the United States, United Kingdom, Norway, the Netherlands and China. The OGCI also aims to build on the industry's reduction in methane emissions (9 pct in 2018) and to include carbon emissions in hope that future temperature increases will not exceed 2 degrees Celsius. To complement its methane emissions-intensity target, OGCI seeks to reduce collective average carbon intensity by 2025.

The OGCI member companies -- BP, Chevron, CNPC, Eni, Equinor, ExxonMobil, Occidental, Pemex, Petrobras, Repsol, Saudi Aramco, Shell and Total -- account for 32 pct of global operated oil and gas production, according to the OGCI website.
