EIA Energy Outlook: The U.S. To Become Net Energy Exporter

lweb.es/f2532 01.08.2017

iconThe International Energy Agency’s Annual Energy Outlook provides modeled projections of U.S. domestic energy markets through 2050, and includes scenarios with different assumptions of macroeconomic growth, world oil prices, technological progress, and energy policies. With strong domestic production and relatively flat demand, the United States becomes a net energy exporter in most Outlook cases as petroleum liquid imports fall and natural gas exports rise over the projection period under consideration. Energy-related carbon dioxide emissions decline in most of the cases, with the highest emissions projected in the “no Clean Power Plan” projection.

cMISTTM : ExxonMobil’s New Natural Gas Technology

lweb.es/f2527 01.05.2017

iconExxonMobil has developed cMISTTM technology, which dehydrates natural gas using a patented absorption system inside pipes and replaces the need for conventional dehydration tower technology. This new technology reduces corrosion and equipment interference helping to ensure the safe and efficient transport of natural gas through the supply infrastructure and ultimately to consumers. It has been licensed to the Chemtech division of Sulzer, a leading player in separation technologies, to facilitate deployment across the oil and gas industry.

Electric Vehicles: Not A Game-Changer For Oil Market

lweb.es/f2480 12.27.2016

iconAccording to BP, electric vehicles are not likely to be a game changer for the growth of oil demand over the next 20 years where the increasing prosperity in emerging Asia is likely to swamp the impact of even a very rapid increase in electric cars. In fact, there may well be more cost effective methods of reducing CO2 emissions over this period, for example greater improvements in vehicle efficiency, a switch away from coal in the power sector, or increased investment in Carbon Capture and Storage. But these considerations should not detract from the many potential benefits that electric vehicles may bring.

Asian Fuel Margins Strong Despite Flood Of Products From China

lweb.es/f1838 11.11.2016

iconOne feature of crude oil and products pricing is the tug-of-war between long-term structural drivers and short-term factors, a scenario being played out in Asian fuel markets. Profit margins for both gasoline and diesel traded in Singapore have staged strong rallies in the past three months. The main factor behind this has been a tightening of the market, with seasonal maintenance at refineries across the region. This short-term factor has influenced pricing, and it appears to be outweighing the longer-term structural driver of steadily rising Chinese fuel exports.

Renewables Beat Coal As Largest Source Of Power Capacity

lweb.es/f1836 11.11.2016

iconAccording to the International Energy Agency, in 2015 coal power plants produced close to 39% of the world’s power, whilst renewables – including hydroelectric dams – accounted for 23%. However the IEA expects that number to climb to 28% by 2021, when renewables will supply the equivalent of all the power produced currently in the US and the EU combined. The IEA sees renewables growing 13% more between 2015 and 2021 than it did in its previous year’s forecast, due mostly to “stronger policy backing in the United States, China, India and Mexico.”

iconGlobal oil majors BP and Rosneft are eyeing a piece of India’s $117 billion retail market for fossil fuels, threatening to shake up government-owned companies that have faced little competition for a decade. BP has already secured licenses to open as many as 3,500 fuel stations, and Rosneft has gained access to about 2,700 pumps through its acquisition of Essar Oil. Along with Reliance Industries and Shell, these players will compete with the three state-owned enterprises that control 90 percent of market volume.

iconThe James M. Barry Electric Generating Station, a 2.7 gigawatt mixed-use coal and gas-fired power plant operated by Alabama Power will host pilot plant tests of a fuel cell carbon capture technology, which uses carbonate fuel cells to concentrate and capture carbon dioxide streams from power plants. “The fuel cell carbon capture solution we are advancing with ExxonMobil could be a game-changer in affordably reducing carbon dioxide emissions from coal and gas-fired power plants globally,” said Chip Bottone, president and CEO of FuelCell Energy, Inc.

Europe’s first megawatt industrial fuel cell power plant

lweb.es/f1446 10.2.2016

iconOEF REVIEW:The first European fuel cell of megawatt size is now operating in Germany. Contrary to conventional power plants, this energy solution delivers heat and electricity virtually absent of pollutants. It will provide clean energy for the production processes of materials specialist FRIATEC. It has a capacity of 1.4 megawatts.In terms of technology and environmental protection, fuel cells represent a promising alternative to conventional combined heat and power plants. They generate power in a non-combustion process which is virtually absent of pollutants. By using this fuel cell, FRIATEC will be able to reduce its CO2 emissions by approximately 3,000 tons per year. Karsten Wildberger, a member of the E.ON SE Board of Directors, adds: “Fuel cells are one of the key technologies for the clean energy world of tomorrow.”
