#Water Stocks Alert: Veolia (Paris:VIE) to Manage #Sinopec's #Beijing Yanshan Petrochemical Entire #Water Cycle

#Water Stocks Alert: Veolia (Paris:VIE) to Manage #Sinopec's #Beijing Yanshan Petrochemical Entire #Water Cycle

PARIS & BEIJING - July 28, 2016 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Regulatory News: Sinopec, Asia's and China's largest refiner, has chosen Veolia (Paris:VIE), through its subsidiary Veolia China, to operate the entire water cycle of its Yanshan petrochemical complex.
The revenues generated by this contract throughout its 25-year duration will be 3.27 billion euros for Veolia. The dedicated joint-venture between Yanshan Petrochemical and Veolia, consolidated by Veolia, will employ more than 800 people.

Located 50 km from downtown Beijing, Yanshan Petrochemical is a fully-owned subsidiary of Sinopec. The complex is one of the largest production bases of synthetic rubber, synthetic resin, phenol acetone and high-quality refined oil products in China. It processes over 10 million tons crude oil and produces 800,000 tons ethylene annually. It can produce 94 varieties with 431 grades of petrochemical products.

Following the mutual trust established through their previous cooperation, Veolia and Beijing Yanshan Petrochemical have chosen to expand the scope of their partnership to the entirety of the water cycle management, including cooling water, demineralized water, industrial water, drinking water, chilled water, waste water and firefighting water of the Yanshan facilities. Veolia will work at optimizing the water consumption within the site and increasing the water recycling rate. A direct result of such optimization will be the decrease in fresh water consumption as well as of Beijing Yanshan Petrochemical's water footprint, an important achievement in a region that suffers water scarcity and shortages.

Veolia is also in charge of upgrading the wastewater treatment facility to bring it into compliance with the newest and most stringent standard in the Beijing area, and one of the most stringent standards worldwide for water discharge. Finally, the contract also comprises a comprehensive energy optimization program covering all water production facilities onsite. The achieved reduction in energy consumption per m3 of water produced will be a major contribution to Beijing Yanshan Petrochemical's efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.
Antoine Frérot, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Veolia, declared: "The responsibilities that Sinopec has entrusted Veolia confirm how two companies can partner up to provide the best services in their respective fields. Through this contract, Veolia will help Sinopec implement the best environmental standards and technologies to make its Beijing Yanshan site a reference in China. This contract confirms the refinery sector can perfectly keep producing while being committed to significantly reduce its environmental footprint."

Veolia has been present in Asia since the 1990s. The Group is currently active in water production and wastewater treatment for public authorities and industrial concerns; municipal, industrial and hazardous waste collection, management and recovery; and energy services. With 14,200 employees in China, Veolia currently manages around 60 contracts in 40 cities. Veolia has been working with Sinopec's Beijing Yanshan Petrochemical since 2006 when they first signed a partnership for the management of wastewater treatment and wastewater reclaim facilities.

Veolia group is the global leader in optimized resource management. With over 174 000 employees worldwide, the Group designs and provides water, waste and energy management solutions that contribute to the sustainable development of communities and industries. Through its three complementary business activities, Veolia helps to develop access to resources, preserve available resources, and to replenish them.
In 2015, the Veolia group supplied 100 million people with drinking water and 63 million people with wastewater service, produced 63 million megawatt hours of energy and converted 42.9 million metric tons of waste into new materials and energy. Veolia Environnement (listed on Paris Euronext: VIE) recorded consolidated revenue of €25 billion in 2015. www.veolia.com

Teck Reports Unaudited Second Quarter Results for 2016
Summary -

All dollar amounts expressed in this news release are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TCK.A and TCK.B, NYSE: TCK) ("Teck") reported profit attributable to shareholders of $15 million ($0.03 per share) compared with $63 million ($0.11 per share) a year ago. Adjusted profit attributable to shareholders was $3 million, or $0.01 per share, compared with $79 million, or $0.14 per share in 2015.

"While the commodity cycle continues to be challenging, we are starting to see some positive changes in the direction of zinc and steelmaking coal prices," said Don Lindsay, President and CEO. "We are pleased with the performance of our operations, which have continued to reduce costs while maintaining production volumes. In addition, through recent transactions, we now have no substantial bond maturities for five years."

Highlights and Significant Items
•Profit attributable to shareholders was $15 million and EBITDA was $468 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared with $63 million and $596 million, respectively, in the second quarter of 2015.

•Gross profit before depreciation and amortization was $536 million in the second quarter compared with $676 million in the second quarter of 2015.

•Cash flow from operations was $339 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared with $335 million a year ago.

•We extended the maturity of US$1.0 billion of our US$1.2 billion revolving credit facility by two years, from June 2017 to June 2019. We also issued US$1.25 billion of five and eight-year senior unsecured notes maturing in 2021 and 2024, using the proceeds to buy back notes maturing in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

•Our liquidity remains strong at $5.4 billion inclusive of $1.4 billion in cash at July 27, 2016 and US$3.0 billion of undrawn, committed credit facilities. Our cash balance is in line with expectations and, given current prices and exchange rates, we anticipate that we will exceed our original goal and end the year with more than $700 million.

•We continue to achieve significant reductions of our cash unit costs at our operations. Steelmaking coal unit costs, including transportation charges, decreased to CAD$76 (US$59) per tonne in the second quarter compared with CAD$83 (US$68) per tonne a year ago, while copper cash unit costs after by-product credits declined to US$1.34 per pound from US$1.49 per pound from a year ago.

•We have reached agreements with the majority of our steelmaking coal customers for the third quarter of 2016, based on a quarterly benchmark of US$92.50 per tonne for the highest quality product, and we expect total sales in the third quarter, including spot sales, to be at least 6.8 million tonnes of steelmaking coal. We expect our realized price as compared to the current quarterly benchmark to be consistent with the typical range we normally achieve.

•Construction of the Fort Hills oil sands project has surpassed 60% completion.

•In early July we acquired the 2.5% minority interest stake in our Highland Valley Copper mine for $33 million. We now have a 100% interest in the mine.

•We were named to the Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada ranking for the fourth consecutive year by media and investment research company Corporate Knights. The Best 50 ranks companies based on 12 sustainability metrics, including carbon productivity, gender leadership diversity, health and safety performance and pension fund quality.

•We have updated our production and cash unit cost guidance for 2016 as a result of our strong first-half performance.

◦Steelmaking coal production is now expected to be 1.0 million tonnes higher and in the range of 26 to 27 million tonnes.

◦Copper production is now revised to 310,000 to 320,000 tonnes.

◦Mined zinc production is now revised to 645,000 to 665,000 tonnes, including co-product zinc production from our copper business unit.

◦Cost of sales at our steelmaking coal operations are expected to be $42 to $46 per tonne, down from $45 to $49 per tonne.

◦Copper unit costs after by-product credits are expected to be US$1.40 to US$1.50 per pound, down from US$1.50 to US$1.60 per pound.
