An ICF report determined shipping oil overseas would spur the U.S. economy, lowering gasoline prices in the process.

German biogas supply plant builder Streicher Anlagenbau GmbH & Co. KG has installed two Atlas Copco GG 90 compressors with variable-speed drive (VSD) at a plant in Geislingen.

The two units, which have been especially designed for the biogas market, are used to compress the gas to 14 bar for distribution into the medium-pressure network of the local energy supply network.

The growth in U.S. imports of Canadian oil sands in recent years has not impacted the overall greenhouse gas (GHG) intensity of the U.S. supply mix, according to a new study by IHS, a leading global source of critical information and insight. The growth of oil sands imports were offset by substitution for similar sources of supply and by increase in lower-carbon tight oil displacing relatively higher carbon imports from Africa and elsewhere, the study says.

Vast production growth in the northeastern United States is significantly altering the pipeline flow throughout much of the continent, according to a recent Moody’s Investors Service report.

The unexpected and stunning success of the shale plays in the United States over the past decade has dramatically changed the nation’s energy picture for years, if not decades, to come.

Do you want to know who the real faces of the oil and gas industry are? It’s not the Koch boys, Rex Tillerson, Boone Pickens or Aubrey McClendon.

It’s this middle-aged guy named Jim who makes his living driving a cab in Pittsburgh that runs on natural gas. It’s Nick Jentzsch, a 25-year-old service man for Questar Gas in Utah who happened to save a life during what was supposed to be a routine leak check.

A new CME Group report suggested that if natural gas only increases its share of energy use for transportation from the current 3% to the 7-10% range over the next five years, the result would translate into a dramatically faster closing of the energy price gap.

Wet gas meter calibrations are usually done using natural gas, kerosene and water. Increasingly, gas producers are questioning a meter’s ability to measure wet gas entrained with the unique liquids found on platforms and wellheads (viscous hydrocarbons, paraffin based/high-wax liquids, sea water, brine solutions, MEG and other custom liquids).

Spectra Energy’s 20-mile expansion of the Texas Eastern and Algonquin Gas Transmission pipelines from Linden, NJ to Manhattan cost $60 million per mile, but the money is just the beginning.

Sometimes it feels like a black box and a crystal ball are the biggest help in forecasting energy product prices. Forecasting prices on the primary fuels - crude oil, natural gas and coal - which comprise over 90% of the fuel used worldwide, is an important part of the business. Price outlook coupled with demand forecast are essential considerations for developing operational levels and planning capital expenditures to meet the constant demand for fuel.
