Energy is essential to home, community, business, commercial and federal operations. Any disruption in providing energy for smooth operations on any level could lead to a life or death situation. How are energy deliveries protected from unauthorized disruptions?
This article is the last in a four-part series looking at LNG in a national and global perspective. This looks at government’s role in environmental public policy and climate change in regards to natural gas.
This article is the third in a four-part series looking at LNG in a national and global perspective. Part three looks at the challenges in getting LNG to markets and the need for social license.
The first shipment of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the large Australia Pacific LNG facility in Queensland set sail this week on the tanker, Methane Spirit.
This article is the second in a four-part series looking at LNG in a national and global perspective. Part two discusses the global market and the role of the US.
Shale oil and gas development has sparked concern about the water quality of water sources near drilling activity. Companies take ‘pre-drill’ baseline water samples to monitor water changes through the shale operations. The January 21st shale webinar will focus on an extensive research project on baseline sampling protocol.
This article is the first in a four-part series looking at LNG in a national and global perspective. Part one looks at what LNG is and its significance in the energy industry.
A study looks to provide quantitative data on the influence DOE has had on oil and gas innovations by looking at patent data.
The last time the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) completed a geology-based assessment of the unconventional oil and gas resources in the Barnett shale region was in 2003, based solely on vertical drilling development. The successful use of horizontal drilling with hydraulic fracturing opened the door to unlocking oil and gas resources. (more…)
Three significant points identified from the research.
On December 3, 2015, House Bill No. 1731, also called Keystone Energy Enhancement Act, sponsored by Pennsylvania State Representative Mike Turzai, was referred to the House Commerce Committee.
The Ben Franklin Shale Gas Innovation and Commercialization Center (SGICC) announced their 5th Annual Shale Gas Innovation Contest, offering a total of $80,000 in cash prizes for the four best shale energy oriented innovations, new product ideas, or service concepts that are either in the development stage or recently launched.
A short synopsis of the three studies on economic impacts of Utica Shale Development in Ohio.
The Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported earlier how electric generation from natural gas has been on the rise. How does that break down by state?
Dartmouth College researchers publish "Geographic Dispersion of Economic Evidence from the Fracking Revolution", looking at the economic impacts in producing counties and throughout the whole region.
The retired Sunbury coal-fired power plant in Snyder County will be converted to a natural gas powered station by the first quarter of 2018; it's considered to be one of the largest coal-to-natural gas power conversion projects in the US.
Fifth Annual Conference Showcases Opportunities to Leverage Abundant Natural Gas Supply
Like any good hunter, Nooreen Meghani knows how to read the signs that her prey is close. (more...)
For the second time ever, total US electricity generation from natural gas surpassed coal in July, with natural gas fueling 35.0% of total generation to coal's 34.9% share.
