Senate panel to discuss carbon capture, transportation and sequestration

Jan. 31: The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee will hold a hearing about carbon capture, transportation and sequestration in Room 366, Dirksen Senate Office Building, at 10 a.m. The committee will receive testimony on two bills: S. 2323, which would authorize research on carbon capture and technology, development and demonstration projects; and S. 2144, which would require the Energy Secretary to study construction of carbon dioxide pipelines and sequestration facilities.

Why it matters: Supposedly more important to electric utilities with coal-fired power plants and other industries, carbon capture and sequestration also matters to oil and gas producers who see its potential to stimulate production from underground formations.

Scheduled witnesses include C. Stephen Allred, assistant Interior secretary for land and minerals; Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Joseph T. Kelliher; Krista Edwards, deputy administrator at the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration; Benjamin H. Grumbles, assistant administrator for water at the Environmental Protection Agency; James A. Slutz, deputy assistant secretary in the Department of Energy's Office of Oil and Gas; Lawrence Bengal, Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission director; Scott Anderson, senior policy office at Environmental Defense in Austin, and Tracy Anderson, senior vice president at Denbury Resources Inc. in Plano, Tex.

Global LNG: Adjusting to New Realities

Fri, Mar 20, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.
