BLM posts final EIS for Pinedale Anticline area

Nick Snow
Washington Editor

WASHINGTON, DC, June 30 -- The final supplemental environmental impact statement for the Pinedale Anticline Project Area (PAPA) in Wyoming is available, the US Bureau of Land Management said on June 26.

The FSEIS is part of a US Department of the Interior analysis of a proposal by Questar Market Resources Co., Shell Exploration & Production Co., and Ultra Petroleum Inc. The three producers have proposed conducting year-round drilling and completions within the PAPA, BLM said.

BLM added that the FSEIS is not a decision document, but is designed to inform the public and interested agencies of environmental and socioeconomic impacts that could result from the project and to evaluate alternatives.

Additional information acquired from public comments and from internal reviews could result in the selection of an alternatives or group of alternatives to provide the best operating practices, impact mitigation and management practices to reduce environmental harm, BLM said.

The FSEIS will be available for viewing at the Pinedale BLM field office and online at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en2.html.

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.

The Future of US Refining

Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
