Learn how rates and regulatory actions are shaping natural gas pipeline infrastructure development in the United States. Learn more at http://bv.com/reports TRANSCRIPT Richard Porter | Director, Management Consulting, Black & Veatch: I think in the last year what we have seen is that things for pipelines have changed, really 180 degress. Although pipelines are facing a lot of new market issues, I think that generally they’re really focused on a lot of the same traditional issues they have always been focused on and these would include things like regulatory uncertainty, rate certainty and demand related issues. While pipeline operators are offering their own solutions, I think they also realize that it is important to have some help from the regulatory commissions. I think what they are looking for the regulatory commissions to do is to come up with new policies that are pro-growth. In fact, in our survey, 75 percent of our respondents suggested that the one solution that they saw was that regulators could offer would be policies that contributed to shorter permitting processes for pipelines. They saw this as a solution that could contribute to the growth of infrastructure and to more positive earning for pipelines. I think the future looks very positive for pipelines and I think it’s one that should be looked to as an opportunity as opposed to one that is just purely a challenge. There are a lot of things to be very positive about; the pipelines are filling capacity that has been idle for a lot of years – they are filling it with very good rates that are producing very positive revenues. They can take what they have learned and they can move forward into what is a somewhat challenging environment but if they can take those tools and they can apply them as they move forward, I think those who apply them judiciously and who rise to meet the challenge will be uniquely rewarded.

Hello, Welcome to The World Trade News. , Nord Stream 2: EU agrees tighter rules for Russian pipeline EU ambassadors have agreed to toughen regulations on a controversial gas pipeline from Russia to Germany. but they have decided not to back plans that might threaten its completion. Work on the 1,225km (760-mile) Nord Stream 2 pipeline under the Baltic Sea is already well under way and is set to be finished by the end of 2019. The EU wants to bring pipelines coming into the bloc under its energy rules. Germany feared that would make the pipeline uneconomic and unviable. In the end 27 of the bloc's 28 ambassadors reportedly agreed with a Franco-German compromise, which meant that Germany could remain as lead negotiator on the Nord Stream 2 project. Russia currently supplies around 40% of the EU's gas supplies, just ahead of Norway, which is not in the EU but takes part in the bloc's single market. For years, the 28-member bloc has been concerned about reliance on Russian gas. Poland has warned that Russia could use Nord Stream 2 to harm Europe's energy security, and US President Donald Trump even accused Germany of being a "captive" of Russia because of it. Nord Stream 2 will only increase Russia's supply, it also means that, along with its TurkStream project, Russia will be able to bypass Ukrainian pipelines. The loss of transit fees would hit Ukraine's economy hard. A big priority for the EU is to increase competition too, and instead of a patchwork of different agreements for pipelines entering the bloc it wants Nord Stream 2 to come under internal EU rules on transparency and separating ownership of the pipes from the supplier. It is trying to look beyond Russian gas - to imports of US liquified natural gas (LNG) and new pipelines, such as a planned Norway-Poland pipeline via Denmark, that would supply Sweden and other neighbouring states. German businesses have invested heavily in Nord Stream 2 and former Chancellor, Gerhard Schröder is running the project. As well as Germany's Uniper and BASF's Wintershall unit, other European companies have stakes too, including Anglo-Dutch Shell, OMV of Austria and Engie of France. Chancellor Angela Merkel tried to assure Central and Eastern European states on Thursday that the pipeline would not make Germany reliant on Russia for energy. "Germany will expand its network of gas terminals in regards to liquified gas. Meaning, for gas we do not want to be at all dependent on Russia alone," she said. Russian government spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow hoped the disagreement would be sorted out. "We still believe that this project is beneficial to both the European gas consumers' interests and to Russian Federation as gas supplier," he said. Thank you for watching The world Trade news.

FERC The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regulates many aspects of interstate natural gas transmission pipeline construction, including approval, permitting and siting for new pipeline facilities taking into account environmental and landowner impacts, whether there is a public need for the project and transmission rates that pipelines are permitted to charge for interstate shipments. FERC routinely holds public meetings so landowners and other interested parties can ask questions and have access to the most up to date information about the project. FERC has an informative citizen’s guide that fully explains the FERC review process and answers questions about what it means to have an interstate natural gas facility either proposed or on one’s land. For more information about the FERC project evaluation process, visit FERC’s website at http://www.ferc.gov/ PHMSA The Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, or PHMSA, is part of the Department of Transportation (DOT). It establishes national safety policy on pipelines, sets and enforces safety standards, educates and conducts research to prevent incidents. It also helps prepare the public and first responders to reduce consequences of an incident. For more information, visit PHMSA’s website at http://www.phmsa.dot.gov/

New regulations are coming to the natural gas industry as domestic production increases in the United States. On Thursday, the Transportation Department proposed new rules seeking to make the transmission of natural gas safer across the nation. Over the last two decades, the government has recorded 2,000 incidents along gas transmission lines which have resulted in 46 deaths, 181 injuries, and almost $2 billion in damages. The rules would extend pressuring-testing to gas lines built before 1970. Though some companies have begun to voluntarily test their older lines, the transportation agency has identified thousands of miles of piping which has not been tested. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2016-03-17-US--Pipeline%20Explosions/id-0a5cc97c03424193983b7f7713b60ee5 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

May 31, 2013 NEW YORK — Safety and environmental concerns about a new gas pipeline being built into Manhattan’s west side have given rise to protest. The high-pressure Spectra Energy pipeline, set to begin operating in late fall, travels under parts of New Jersey, Staten Island, and the Hudson River, and enters Manhattan next to a playground and park. "This is an incredibly high-population area and it’s insane what they’re doing," said Kathleen Thomas, one of several hundred protesters who rallied in Manhattan recently to call on President Barack Obama to withhold support for all new fossil-fuel pipelines. Thomas noted that the Spectra pipeline is similar in design and pressure to one that exploded in 2010, destroying a neighborhood in San Bruno, California. Eight people were killed and more than sixty injured in the disaster, which left a crater several stories deep and 122 meters wide. Thomas’s group, United for Action, and other opponents fear that a similar accident, or terrorist attack, could kill hundreds. Among the entities that have filed suit to stop the pipeline is Jersey City, New Jersey, across the Hudson River, where the pipeline travels under schools, hospitals and chemical plants. New York State and city officials, including New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, say the pipeline poses no threat. "I’m not an expert on this pipeline or pipeline technology, but we have pipelines running under half of America. If they were that dangerous, we’d have a lot of fires," he said. Deputy Mayor for Operations Caswell Holloway, a former commissioner of environmental protection, seconded Bloomberg. "We reviewed it for safety. We reviewed it for environmental impacts. It is being built to exceed the highest-rated standards," he said, adding that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which has ultimate authority, also approved the project. But opponents say pipeline accidents happen almost weekly in the U.S., although mostly in unpopulated areas. Claire Donahue, who founded a group called the Sane Energy Project to oppose the Spectra pipeline, said that energy companies themselves pay for environmental impact studies, and that regulations are so lax as to be meaningless. The requirement for this pipeline is that it be inspected only once every seven years, she said. "There are 88 inspectors for 2.5 million miles of pipelines. The primary way that pipelines are inspected is to walk over the route looking for dead grass. I’m not making that up. We’re in a place, a cement area, the pipe is under a river, it is under a highway, it is under sidewalks. You tell me how they are going to know that it is leaking," said Donahue. Pipeline opponents also are concerned about radon, a radioactive gas that is more concentrated in natural gas extracted from shale formations deep underground. Radon decays in about two weeks’ time, but opponents say it will not have more than a few days to diminish before reaching New York. Spectra Energy maps show the new pipeline carrying gas mainly extracted from the nearby Marcellus Shale formation in Pennsylvania and New York. Al Appleton, a former New York City commissioner of environmental protection, charged in a recent forum that city and state officials have been negligent in not investigating the issue. "The radon level in that natural gas could be as much as 20 to 60 times higher than the levels to which we’re currently exposed, which means a huge spike in your risk for things like lung cancer," he said. He noted that most New Yorkers live in apartment buildings constructed for gas-stove cooking only. An analysis commissioned by Spectra Energy, however, found that the pipeline's gas will not bring dangerous levels of radon into New Yorkers’ homes or businesses. The study, by biophysicist Lynn R. Anspaugh, said that a study cited by opponents overestimated the amount of radon at both wellheads and after transmission. It also noted that the lead federal regulatory agencies involved, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of Energy, both concluded there will be no health hazard to users of the natural gas brought by the pipeline. Spectra Energy statements also have said that the pipeline will be operated with multiple safeguards, including robotic checks of the pipeline, and that it poses no danger either of explosion or radon. The lawsuits brought by opponents will be heard in federal court in the fall, right before the pipeline is set to begin operating. Meanwhile, opposition is building to other new natural gas infrastructure proposed for the New York area, including another high-pressure pipeline into the seaside Rockaway neighborhood, which was badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy. Opponents say that global warming is responsible for storms like Sandy, and that remaining deposits of gas and oil must be left in the ground, in order to stave off even greater climate disasters.

Sometimes you need to get arrested to be heard. Last month more than 250 people marched to Enbridge’s offices in Duluth to deliver a letter asking the oil company to delay expansion of its pipelines until full environmental impact statements had been completed. Enbridge staff refused to read the letter and called police, who arrested seven of the demonstrators for trespassing. On Tuesday, four of those arrested got a chance to tell the media what they wanted to tell Enbridge. “We’re here because we’ve been playing by the rules in this pipeline process for three years and it’s not working,” said Honor The Earth organizer Thane Maxwell. “The regulatory process of the state is profoundly dysfunctional. Enbridge’s own process is disrespectful and aggressive, dishonest and in violation of their own policy on consultation and relationships with native people.” The process for regulating an international pipeline is complicated and Honor The Earth and other environmental groups have been fighting it in court. This week Enbridge won a federal court victory that would let it increase crude oil shipments from Canada to the United States via two parallel pipelines it reconfigured at the border to skirt a regulated capacity limit on one of them. Environmentalists say the switch circumvented environmental review of the expansion project. The rulings came a day after a National Academies of Sciences study found the heavy bitumen crude oil from Canada poses an extra environmental risk. When spilled into waterways it soon turns into a thick, hard-to-recover residue that doesn’t degrade. One of the Enbridge lines being used to ship the crude across Minnesota operates at reduced volume because of its history of leaks. The letter Maxwell and other supporters brought to Enbridge had several specific requests for changes to the permitting process, including formal consultation with tribal governments (as required by Enbridge’s official Aboriginal and Native American policy), and postponement of all projects until full Environmental Impact Statements have been completed (as required by state and federal law). Most of all, they want to have a conversation with the company. Enbridge’s response, drums and round dance video In a prepared statement, Enbridge says it wants to have “conversations”, but asks that they be in an “appropriate forum,” which apparently their Duluth office was not. “So this action was our way of going to their space, to their office and saying what you’re doing is not OK,” Maxwell told the media before he and three others were arraigned on trespassing charges at the St. Louis County Courthouse. “They do not want to have a conversation. They do not want to engage with us. They want to make a profit,” said one of the demonstrators who had visited Enbridge. “The people who were arrested that day were non-native people,” said Maxwell. “This is a solidarity action, solidarity arrest. It’s non-native people standing up and saying treaties are our issue too. Our ancestors signed those agreements and we have a responsibility to uphold them.” The big picture Jesse Peterson was one of those arrested. He sees the struggle with Enbridge as part of a larger power clash between the profit-driven wealthy class and everyone else. “They’re thinking that a quest for profits makes more sense in giving just a few people the ability to hoard a wealth so powerful that they get to decide if you have jobs and food and shelter. They can make rules that hurt native folks, they hurt black folks, white folks that they don’t like. and there’s just too much power in too few hands. We need to have real conversations. Their laws prevent us from having real conversations. They’re immoral laws. They’re laws I don’t want and they’re laws I won’t behave with.” And please don’t call them protesters. “We’re not here protesting,” said Maxwell. “We’re here protecting the earth.” “This is the same process of colonialist violence that’s been going on for 500 years. Corporations, the government – they’re in it together.” “500 years is enough.”

The Transportation Department is seeking to make gas transmission safer in the United States. On Thursday, the agency announced a new proposal which will expand regulations for the inspection and repair of gas pipelines across the nation. Among the new regulations will be an expansion of pressure-testing requirements. Pipelines built in the 1970s which were previously exempt, will now be subject to mandatory testing. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx added the proposal is necessary to handle the drastic increase of domestic natural gas production in recent years. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2016-03-17-US--Pipeline%20Explosions/id-f7d67bc6a86642398ded828350c2acd7 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

The Cryobox™ liquefaction technology has been upgraded to a fully mobile configuration to accommodate the dynamics of the oil and gas field operations: the Cryobox-Trailer™. This new equipment from the Gas 3.0 Solutions engineered by Galileo Technologies can be relocated within hours to liquefy natural gas at any site, without any heavy lifting equipment. The Cryobox-Trailer eliminates the necessity of gathering infrastructure, enabling you as an oil producer to monetize the well testing and the flare gas reduction right from day one. With a daily processing capacity of 750,000 standard cubic feet (SCF) of natural gas per Cryobox Trailer, you can add or remove units to fit the flow rate of the producing wells. While liquefying on-site, the Cryobox Trailer units enable the distribution of LNG in cryogenic ISO containers via Virtual Pipeline™ and apply logistics similar to those of other liquid fuels. You monetize LNG to several potential high horsepower consumers and/or transport it by road to a valorization site for its injection into the natural gas grid. The multi-stage liquefaction cycle of the Cryobox-Trailer offers approximately 10,000 gallons per day of LNG. This cycle eliminates inerts, recovers boil-off and provides emission-free LNG storage and loading. This feature avoids natural gas waste, ensuring safe operations in compliance with environmental regulations. Thanks to its cold start-up capacity, the Cryobox-Trailer reaches peak production in only 10 minutes, without any energy losses or inefficiencies. In addition, using the same natural gas field as fuel, the Cryobox-Trailer will drastically improve your economics. Through the minimization of dynamic components, the use of fluids, the labor and the proven technology of the Cryobox-Trailer, this will ensure you an autonomous operation rate over 99% in remote areas. Currently, 14 Cryobox-Trailers and 5 mobile ZPTS™ Plants for gas conditioning are being assembled at Galileo facilities. These units will liquefy natural gas from several stranded gas wells in Mendoza Province, Argentina, and will supply up to 130,000 gallons of LNG per day via Virtual Pipeline. The LNG output from this fully mobile LNG Distributed Production Platform will fuel the natural gas-fired power station that Galileo built for its subsidiary Methax. Installed at a key node of the provincial grid, this new power station will supply 41 megawatts (MW), which will alleviate the stress on transport and distribution power lines. Gas 3.0™ means gas from any source to the consumers. For this instance, it will convert stranded gas to electricity for 125 thousand inhabitants.

A pipeline network more than 2.5 million miles long transports oil and natural gas throughout the United States — but a top official in the federal government's pipeline safety oversight agency admits that the regulatory process is overstretched and "kind of dying." A recent spike in the number of spills illustrates the problem: the Department of Transportation recorded 73 pipeline-related accidents in 2014, an 87 percent increase over 2009. Despite calls for stricter regulations over the last few years, the rules governing the infrastructure have largely remained the same. Critics say that this is because of the oil industry's cozy relationship with regulators, and argue that violations for penalties are too low to compel compliance. VICE News traveled to Glendive, Montana, to visit the site of a pipeline spill that dumped more than 50,000 gallons of oil into the Yellowstone River, to find out why the industry has such weak regulatory oversight.

As he soars in Basin Electric’s airplanes over the hills and valleys of western North Dakota and southern Saskatchewan, Canada, Claude O’Berry, Dakota Gasification Company pipeline superintendent, has one thing on his mind: the integrity of the carbon dioxide (CO2) pipeline. Basin Electric’s pilots fly low enough so that O’Berry can carefully view the 205-mile stretch of 12- and 14-inch-diameter pipeline that carries CO2 from Dakota Gas’ Great Plains Synfuels Plant near Beulah, ND, to the oil fields of southern Saskatchewan. The CO2 is used for enhanced oil production in Canada, where the older oil fields can pump out up to three times as much oil by injecting CO2 into the deep crevices of the oil wells. Dakota Gas owns and operates four sections of pipelines: the CO2 line to Canada, and three sections of synthetic natural gas (SNG) pipelines, totaling about 245 miles of pipeline. Per federal regulations, Dakota Gas is required to inspect the CO2 line 26 times per year, in two-week intervals, and the SNG lines once per year. “It is very important to carefully inspect the pipeline route as early detection of an issue can save us from a major problem,” O’Berry says. Before taking flight, Basin Electric’s pilots punch in the coordinates of the pipeline so they fly along the exact pipeline route. O’Berry and the rest of the pipeline team, including supervisors Dave Knoll and Kurt Dutchuk, and pipeline operators Rod Freije, Lewis Hinckley, Kurt Kordonowy, Craig Mattheis and Scott Olson, diligently work to keep the pipelines running smoothly and safely. The team alternates inspecting the pipeline in order to get different perspectives of the pipeline condition and its surroundings, O’Berry says.

EU counties agree deal for Russia's Nord Stream 2 pipeline regulation, Merkel says European Union countries have reached an agreement on how to regulate Russia's Nord Stream 2 pipeline, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday, declining to give details on the compromise. "Regarding the gas directive, we have reached an agreement and this was possible because Germany and France worked closely together," Merkel told a joint news conference with Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita. According to a draft deal obtained by French Press Agency (AFP), France and Germany have now agreed to oversight from the "territory and territorial sea of the member state where the first interconnection point is located." The pipeline is due to emerge at the German Baltic port of Greifswald, from where gas will be distributed to other EU countries. The draft text replaces the older wording stating the EU rules on gas imports will be applied by "the territory of the member states" and or the "territorial sea of the member states." The draft compromise was submitted to a meeting of the EU ambassadors discussing a revision of gas market rules for the 28-nation bloc, diplomats said. The ambassadors were due to wrap up the talks on the gas rules later Friday afternoon, they added. But the European Parliament and EU member countries meeting at a higher level must still sign off on the gas market reforms. France's earlier support for giving EU countries more say in the pipeline project appeared likely to shift the balance away from Germany. Nord Stream 2 faces opposition from many countries in eastern and central Europe, the United States and particularly Ukraine because it risks increasing Europe's dependence on Russian natural gas. Combined with the planned TurkStream pipeline across the Black Sea, Nord Stream 2 would mean Russia could bypass Ukraine in providing gas to Europe, robbing Moscow's new foe of transit fees and a major strategic asset. 'Underhanded competition' Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in Moscow that Washington was spearheading efforts to undermine fair competition. "This international project is necessary for Russia and the EU, but it is constantly attacked by third countries, more specifically by the United States," Peskov said. Peskov accused Washington of "underhanded competition" by trying to encourage Europeans "to buy more expensive American gas." Saying Russia will "follow developments very closely," Peskov added: "We hope that the EU member countries will know how to settle this issue themselves." In earlier supporting broader EU oversight, a French diplomatic source had told AFP on Thursday that Paris was "not for or against Nord Stream 2". But the source said France sought "guarantees for the security of Europe and for the security and stability of Ukraine." The draft compromise sought to tackle concerns over Ukraine saying: "We consider a (gas rules) directive in this spirit indispensable for a fruitful discussion on the future gas transit through Ukraine." German Chancellor Angela Merkel has so far insisted that the pipeline is a "purely economic project" that will ensure cheaper, more reliable gas supplies. She has said there will be no dependence on Russia if Europe diversifies at the same time. Construction has already begun, involving companies such as Germany's Wintershall and Uniper, Dutch-British Shell, France's Engie and Austria's OMV. Gas is due to start arriving in Germany by the end of the year.

http://fsr.eui.eu/event/webinar-baltic-sea-pipelines-eu-law/ Live online seminar recording from 23 May 2017 Professor Kim Talus (University of Eastern Finland and University of Helsinki) on the Baltic Sea pipelines and EU law organised by the FSR Energy Law & Policy Area At present, Russia accounts for one third of the EU’s gas imports, a persistently troubling dependency for the EU. Since the announcement in 2015 of the Russian state-controlled energy group Gazprom’s $11 billion Nord Stream 2 project, intended to pipe natural gas from Russia across the Baltic Sea into Germany, it has been a contentious and deeply divisive issue among Member States. The EU has struggled to reach a consensus on the economic merits of the development versus the risks of strengthening Russia’s dominance in the European gas market and, in turn, being held captive to geopolitical manoeuvres. Multiple vying perspectives have drawn on EU law and EU internal energy market rules in arguments and counter arguments over the development of the pipeline. With both Russia and Germany having eschewed an intergovernmental agreement, what lies ahead for Nord Stream 2? Is Nord Stream 2 compatible with the principles of the Energy Union? With diversification and security of supply arguments against the project having already been rejected, to what extent, if at all, can EU law be applied to the project?

Author: Walter Boltz ( Executive Director E-Control, and Vice Chair Acer's Regulatory Board) Category: FSR webinar recording Level: advanced Date of release: June 2013 This is a recording of webinar held on 22 May 2013, moderated by Magdalena Mos (FSR Training Coordinator) Walter Boltz speaks about timely issues of the European Gas Markets. He discusses the role gas should play in the European energy market, as, for example, considered in the EU Energy Roadmap 2050 for reaching a low carbon energy system. Price developments however make the future role of gas uncertain: European gas markets seem to be at a crossroads. Walter Boltz looks at the changing landscape of global gas trade and the impacts of the shale gas revolution in the US. Gas will also play a different role in the power production in the future. His main questions is: what can we do to secure the position of gas?
