Part 2 Undergound Propane Tank Installation - Propane Plus
Propane Plus - Located in Rehoboth, Massachusetts Underground propane tanks have a completely different set of rules and requirements that must be met when installing one of these LP Gas tanks. Underground tanks have specialized design features that allow them to store propane beneath the surface of the consumers yard. Propane tanks designed for above ground service can not be installed underground. Although the tank fittings, valves and connections are the same among propane tanks, their placement on the tank is different. Above ground propane tanks will generally have the relief valve and liquid withdrawal valve placed outside of the dome usually on opposite ends of the tank. On an underground tank, all fittings and connections are centrally positioned to be protected by the dome walls and cover. For obvious reasons, it's not legal to bury a propane tank designed and designated as an above ground propane tank. Underground Propane Tank Protection Because underground propane tanks are exposed to a completely different set of conditions and elements, certain precautionary and protective measures must be in place to prolong the service life of an underground propane tank. Cathodic Protection - The earth a natural electric current that occurs in water and land alike. These electrical currents have an adverse affect on metal objects that are in the ground or in the water. This adverse affect is called electrolysis and will literally drill a small hole through a metal object. Underground propane tanks are subject to electrolysis and need to be protected to avoid the deteriorating effect that results. To protect a tank from electrolysis, an anode bag is attached by wire to the tank and placed in the hole with the tank before it is covered with backfill. This sacrificial anode bag absorbs the electrical currents in the earth that would have ordinarily targeted the tank resulting in damage to the container. In short, the sacrificial anode bag acts as a "decoy" for the damaging currents that can harm a tank in an underground environment. Tank Coating and Backfill - The outer surface of an underground propane tank is in constant contact with an environment that can be extremely damaging. For this reason the outer surface of the container must have a protective coating and be covered with a material that will not be harmful to the shell of the underground propane tank. Although propane tanks designed for underground use are coated with a protective material at their point of manufacture, the container can be compromised during installation if the backfill is made up of rocks and/or abrasive materials. Underground tanks are designed to exist in harsh environments but if the backfill is made up of a material such as gravel (which can cut through the tanks protective coating), the anode bag may not adequately protect the tank from underground currents. For this reason, sand or firm earth free of rocks and abrasives should be used to cover an underground tank after installation. Underground Tank Location - Underground propane tanks should be in a place where they are not going to be underneath any sort of vehicular traffic. For instance, a propane tank placed under where a driveway is to be installed is not a good idea and nor is it legal. The underground tank should be placed in a location where it is not going to be underneath anything other than dirt and earth. Propane Tanks Can and Will Float One of the most unnerving things any gas customer can see is their newly installed underground tank floating in the hole it was once buried in. The rule is this, if the water in the hole rises above the liquid propane level in the tank, the tank will float if installed improperly. There are precautions that can be taken prior to and during the underground tank installation process including placing wet cement in the hole just before the tank is lowered into place. This ensures that the tank feet are surrounded and covered and when the concrete cures, it will be harder for the tank to float out of the hole if water rises above the liquid propane level in the tank. Another option, recommended by FEMA, involves securing the tank in place with ground anchors and metal straps

Fundamentals of Oil & Gas: A 12-week Online Training Course
Course Director: David A. Wood on behalf of IBC Global Academy This course provides the key information necessary for understanding the petroleum industry along its full supply chain. It provides the global setting for the industry and then works its way down the supply chain from upstream to downstream. It covers exploration geophysical techniques, drilling techniques equipment and drilling process, production technologies, enhanced recovery technologies such as hydraulic fracture stimulation ("fracking") and enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technologies. Pipelines, shipping, terminals and storage highlight the significance of midstream infrastructure to the supply chains. Refinery processes (e.g. distillation, cracking and blending) are explained along with the calculation and significance of various refining margins and crack spreads. Natural gas moved by pipeline and in liquefied form (LNG) and transformed to petroleum products in gas to liquids (GTL) technologies has grown in significance in recent years. The need for gas storage facilities to balance periodic supply and demand fluctuations and the technologies involved in gas to power (e.g. combined cycle gas turbine, CCGT) are also reviewed in the course. The petroleum products wholesale and retail markets are evaluated in the context of the marketing and distribution sector of the supply chain. The course also provides insight to the management and business processes associated with relationships, contracts, regulation, fiscal terms and the key roles played by governments and national oil companies and organisations representing sectors of the industry. The course concludes by identifying some of the key issues and challenges associated with the industry and what role oil and gas is likely to play in the global primary energy mix in coming decades. www.dwasolutions.com

Closing Arguments Chief Gas Metering Station, Dallas, PA
Gas facility arguments conclude Dallas Twp. zoning hearing board will decide on Chief Gathering application Dec. 7. By Sarah Hite [email protected] Staff Writer DALLAS TWP. -- The final witness testified and closing arguments were presented Tuesday at a zoning hearing for Chief Gathering LLC's application to build a natural gas metering station off Hildebrandt Road. click image to enlarge Select images available for purchase in the Times Leader Photo StoreThe zoning hearing board will decide on the application at 6 p.m. Dec. 7 in the Sandy & Marlene Insalaco Hall at Misericordia University. Sonia Maslowski, of Fairground Road, said she had concerns about worksite safety, property devaluation, traffic and the effect an influx of workers from outside the area would have on her family and property located about 600 feet from the proposed site. Maslowski said her residence is the closest in proximity to the site, a fact that she felt Chief's paid expert witnesses "may have elected to ignore." She said the only safe option is to move the site to an area where there are fewer residences and no schools. Chief's application for a special exception outlines the details of a metering station that would be about 1,300 feet from the Dallas School District campus. The meter would measure gas flowing through a not-yet-built Chief pipeline that will tap into the Transco interstate pipeline that runs through the township. Attorney Mark McNealis, who represents the Maslowski and Dottor families, said in his closing arguments the application doesn't apply to the criteria for special exceptions because he felt the type of activity was already addressed in the zoning ordinance. He said the metering station would fit into the definition of heavy industrial use, which would deem the activity be moved to an industrial zone. Chief's facility would be in an agricultural zone. Attorney Tim Kelly, who represents the Dallas Parents-Taxpayer Group composed of several citizens, agreed with McNealis and also said the activity is hazardous to the community and the health of its citizens. Chief attorney Ken Komoroski said that while Chief has taken part in the proceedings under protest, the company has tried to address all concerns raised, especially safety issues. He said the company heard from opposing witnesses who "mischaracterized testimony" and "misstated facts as presented," and he hoped the board would not be "swayed or deterred" by those witnesses in its decision.

Democrats Have No Plan to Bring Down Rising Gas Prices, But They Do Have a Plan to Make Them Go Up
Learn more at www.epw.senate.gov/inhofe It's not surprising that Democrats in Washington have no plan to bring down rising gas prices. But make no mistake, they do have a plan—to make them go higher. That's right: the Democrats, along with President Obama, are advocating policies that will make you pay more at the pump. And that's exactly what they want. Consider President Obama's Energy Secretary, who said, "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe." That's about $7 to $8 a gallon. And I've noted before the words of Alan Krueger of the Obama Treasury Department, who said, "The Administration believes that it is no longer sufficient to address our nation's energy needs by finding more fossil fuels..." Now with this kind of attitude—which believes that we can power our economy without more oil and gas produced here in America—it's easy to see why prices are going up. In fact, when President Obama took office, gas was $1.84 a gallon; now, it's nearly $4.00. You see, the problem of high gas prices is about supply and demand. We have plenty of supply; in fact, the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service says we have the largest recoverable resources of oil, gas and coal of any nation on Earth. In fact, we have enough supply to make us independent of the Middle East. It's just that this Administration and the Democrats don't want us to get it. Thanks to the Obama Interior Department's de facto moratorium on new drilling permits, I'd say they're doing a very good job of it. Also consider the Obama EPA's cap-and-trade regulations. These regulations, covering everything from farms to manufacturing facilities to power plants, are designed to make energy more expensive. When EPA gets its hands on regulating carbon dioxide from refineries, you can bet you will pay more at the pump. Today the Democrats are supporting legislation to raise taxes on oil and gas companies. Sure, we hear this plan is about ending subsidies for companies that don't need them. But these aren't subsidies—that is, they're not government handouts or checks from taxpayers. These are tax provisions, such as expensing and depreciation—provisions that extend to nearly all companies operating in the U.S. No, what this is about is penalizing businesses to raise more money for the Obama tax and spend machine that has left America drowning in trillion dollar deficits and debt. This has nothing to do with Big Oil or deficit reduction. A White House spokesman recently characterized the Democrats' energy tax increase this way: "The bottom line is that there are more responsible ways to spend billions in taxpayer dollars..." That's right, he said, "Spend billions in taxpayer dollars." The real bottom line is this: Don't be fooled when the Democrats say they're taking away "subsidies" to reduce the deficit. And any time you hear Democrats talking about deficit reduction and tax increases in the same breath, you can be sure the result will be more spending from Washington. Somehow Democrats think it's good for the environment if energy prices rise and the economy suffers. But the environment can only improve if we have the wealth to pay for it. Somehow they think higher energy prices will spur an energy revolution so we won't need oil, coal, and natural gas. But those three energy sources are needed now and will be needed in the decades to come. President Obama and Democrats' have a plan on gas prices—it's focused on making drivers, truckers, farmers, and small businesses pay more at the pump, and it's designed to make us import more foreign energy. Remember, it was Obama's own Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu who made this clear, saying, "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe." That would push gas prices up to $7 to $8 a gallon. It's time to change course, overturn President Obama's regulatory obstacles to new production, and start producing America's abundant supply of energy. Doing so will mean more jobs, more energy, more security, and a stronger economy.

Multiple investigations begin probing gas crisis
tonight we've learned the state public regulation commission has now launched an investigation into the new mexico gas company after the natural gas outage. people are still outraged after thousands of new mexicans went without heat for almost a week. we are committed to bringing you the latest information on this big story. late this afternoon -- we talked to new mexico's attorney general for the first time about an investigation -- he says his office is looking at every way it can to help out new mexicans. "to the extent that we have jurisdiction we're gonna try to keep help people but what i think people need to realize is they are gonna have individuaul causes of action and those would be outside the purview of the ag's office. gary king also says his office will be keeping a close eye on the next rate hike proposal from new mexico gas - to make sure it's not trying to pass of costs from its negligence to you. tonight we have live team coverage as we follow the aftermath of the massive natural gas outage. state lawmakers want answers from the new mexico gas company - and they want them fast - as in tomorrow. that's when the entire senate will hold a hearing on the deep-freeze heat failure. stuart dyson begins our team coverage at the capitol in santa fe. " what went wrong - and how do we avoid a repeat - those are the two big questions lawmakers will have for new mexico gas company officials and state regulators tomorrow - but they aren't the only ones." lawmakers want to know why it took so long to restore service for thousands of new mexicans shivering through the worst cold snap in forty years - and when cutoffs became necessary why did the company choose northern new mexico - senators want to know more about the complex pipeline system and its capacity and how to improve it. " some of that information will obviously surface but it's obviously a long term problem and the fix on it is gonna cost some dollars - and it will not be free." many - but not all - of the senate democrats think the industry needs more oversight - many republicans disagree - saying over-regulation contributed to the problem. " it's largely because we're not drilling wells - we're not re-fixing old wells that need to be repaired - because of pit rules and all of those kinds of regulations - the greenhouse has thing just compounds that if it all goes into effect - all of this stuff kind of feeds together." gas company officials blame the problem on gas suppliers in west texas - whose pipelines went dry during electric power blackouts - no compressors - no gas - some lawmakers say nothing they do can change things in texas. " the hearing is set to start at 12:30 tomorrow afternoon in the senate chambers - senators do want to hear from some of the thousands who lost their heat just when they needed it the most - at the capitol stuart dyson k-o-b eyewitness news four." in the last hour, we learned representative bobby gonzales from taos is introducing a bill to create a task force to look into the gas outage. the task force would also look at how state and local governments handled the emergency. starting tomorrow, fema teams will begin looking at the damage caused by last week's winter storm. new mexicans may be able to get federal money-- for expenses from the winter storm. if your home had any damage -- take pictures and keep receipts for things like repairs and hotels. "whether you are insured uninsured there could be the possibility of getting some financial assistance from fema if the declaration comes down. fema teams will start preliminary assessments here in albuquerque. it could take weeks toomplete the investigation. all findings will be turned over to governor susana martinez. if there is two- and-a half million dollars worth of damage -- she will send the request to president obama. if the president were to approve that declaration -- fema teams would come back out here, and you'd need to show them those pictures and receipts to get some help. live from the newsroom cristina rodda kob eyewitness news four

Senator John Yudichak speaks about gas drilling, jobs, and environment
http://www.gdacoalition.org Dems stump for gas driller taxation, rules A county official says Marcellus Shale money could help pay for flood control. WILKES-BARRE -- As Gov. Tom Corbett paddled leisurely down the Susquehanna on Wednesday, opponents of his anti-tax stance on natural gas extraction stood on the river's bank, decrying his laissez-faire approach and stumping for legislation to tax and better regulate the state's developing gas industry. click image to enlargeSenator John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, speaks at the River Common on Wednesday about the need for more regulation of the Marcellus Shale gas drilling industry and a tax on natural-gas extraction. Standing with Yudichak are, from left, Michael Kwashnik of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers; Paul O. Swartz, executive director of the Susquehanna River Basin Commission; Jim Brozena, Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority executive director; and Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa, D-Forest Hills. Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa, D-Forest Hills, and others held a press conference on the River Common to emphasize the need for a Marcellus Shale legislative policy that creates jobs for Pennsylvanians and protects environmental resources. An essential part of that policy must be a gas severance tax or impact fee distributed to counties and municipalities impacted directly or indirectly by drilling, Yudichak and Costa said. "Without a responsible extraction tax and revenue sharing, coal boomed and went bust, leaving thousands without jobs and turning some of our communities into ghost towns," Yudichak said. "Are we poised to repeat the same mistakes with Marcellus Shale development?" Yudichak introduced a severance tax bill earlier in the year and said he worked to get impact fees on natural gas extraction incorporated in the 2011-12 state budget but was asked by the governor's office to wait for the Governor's Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission's recommendations to be released before introducing impact fee legislation. That commission's report was released July 22, and Yudichak said the legislature must act soon to enact a severance tax or impact fees to compensate local municipalities for the impacts of drilling and to fund environmental protection programs that have run out or are rapidly exhausting their funding. Some of the Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission's recommendations, like updating the state rail infrastructure, improving pipeline infrastructure and developing "green corridors" for natural-gas powered vehicles, require significant investments of state capital, and it's only fair to ask the gas industry to pay their fair share, Yudichak added. Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority Executive Director Jim Brozena said an extraction tax could fund flood-control programs and infrastructure, including funds that could help Plymouth recover from damage in flooding on July 3. Brozena said the state Department of Environmental Protection lost $3.2 million in funding for flood-control programs this year, which cut its ability to offer a 20 percent match to 80 percent U.S. Army Corps of Engineers grants that fund the construction and repair of flood control measures. The event attracted about 30 citizens. Wilkes-Barre resident Norm Johnstone said he supports responsible natural gas development and came to encourage the legislators to promote the use of natural gas resources in-state, including making investments in technologies that use natural gas like non-conventional plastics manufacturing and liquid natural gas-powered vehicles. A handful of members of the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition turned out to express their concerns about gas drilling. The event ended with member Dave Wasilewski of Hunlock Creek shouting criticisms of the Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission's recommendations, which he feels will not adequately regulate the industry and protect the public. Wasilewski said he is concerned that the 500-foot gas well setbacks from private water wells the Commission recommended are not adequate and that the state has failed to provide an economic safety net for homeowners whose properties have been ruined by gas drilling.

German/English language: 5 years programm +traiinnning+ Secularism.
Iranian governments from the Islamic revolution in 1978 till today had no 5 years programms. Dominance of relegion is a cover for the free of charge oil and gas deliveries to GB and Russia. Mr. Hashemi Rafsanjani(Bahramani) and his Gang are covering oil and gas business against the governmental regulations as a government in the existing government! Ironically this is been performed through Jewish companies!!! Iranian government served GB, USA and Russia at the best from the first day of Islamic revolution till today. Iranains suffer under higher inflation and joblessnes. After a secularism Iran must begin to train in 3 levels: ========================================== - Academic level: Within a Postdoctoral-Programm. 1000 Professors each year must be send for special upgarding programms to the best universities. - Ministerial and adminstrative level: The experts from ministeries shall be nnow after 33 years of Islamic revolution in different fields. Islam is a relegion but not a trainning for a ministerial expert. - Industrial level: Iranian government is making problems each day for the own industries through higher imports from China, India, Turkey, etcc. But never Iranians governments offered a real programm to train the industrial managers. Via Qater, Southern Persian Gulf ports, Russian Pipe lines, Pipe line via Turkey, Iran delivers free of charge to to a lower price oil and gas to GB, Russia and USA. This must be stopped. Iranians have understood, that the income of government is spent for useles developments in Lebanon, Syria, Felestina etc. in order to get theose countries for GB! Iran itself needs development in all fields. This progrm without a technical, commercial, juristical trainning at the highest level will not be possible. The present situation of Iran is the governing like a low level colonial country on hourly basis. This is not the solution for Iran with 73 Mio.. All further details you can view /read in www.ktd-knowledge.com or www.primary363.com The inflation of Iran with 26% p.a. must be lowered. Secularism, lower iflation rates, lower interest rates, higher educational investments is a must!
