The 10,000 mirrors arrayed around the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy plant are striking and seem to suggest the concept is on a path to efficient and reliable renewable energy. But, recently, the plant’s operator threw in the towel and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. E&B Natural Resources Management, an independent oil and gas company based in California, is investing in solar electricity to help run its oil production activities in two counties. E&B’s solar initiative will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions from the two projects.

IHS Markit says the industry’s “striking pace of growth” and a dynamic commercial environment are fueling the movement to zero-carbon sources. GlassPoint Solar was founded in 2008 to replace the use of natural gas for steamflooding heavy-oil reservoirs. But amid low energy prices, its chief investor has decided to pull the plug for good. If proven economic, solar EOR technology could represent an environmentally and energy friendly solution for California’s heavy oil producers. Oil and gas professionals may not consider solar power to be a serious threat, but it is poised to make serious inroads into the heating and cooling market.
Phase 1 involved a feasibility study for a facility capable of capturing 750,000 tonnes of CO2 annually. The next phase will explore building a facility capable of more than twice that amount. The area has a potential for up to 11.8 million bbl of recoverable oil reserves. The program aims to keep oil flowing in the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System, which has seen dwindling throughput since 1988. Supermajor announces actions to achieve net-zero ambition and reshape business.
Shell invested in a Singapore solar company and signed an agreement to purchase a Texas company with solar and other renewable assets. Along with its minority stake in a company that uses solar to generate steam for EOR in the Middle East, Shell catches some rays in the Asia Pacific, US, and Oman. The Asia Pacific region is expected to be the fastest-growing region in deepwater development in the next 5 years.
The supermajor will cut 10,000 jobs by year end. Emerging technologies from medical science and the aerospace industry could have a disruptive impact on oil and gas operations. A panel of scientists looked into these technologies and discussed their potential role in the industry.

Supermajor announces actions to achieve net-zero ambition and reshape business. It also noted that it will not seek to explore in countries where it does not already have upstream activities. A pilot project was initiated to classify oil and gas projects in Mexico using the United Nations Framework Classification.
Energy demand is expected to grow during the next century as more countries seek a better quality of life for their citizens. Increasing trends in population and consumption, price volatility, supply instability, and environmental concerns are changing the energy mix and energy strategies in the 21st century. The energy mix is the set of energy sources that are used to meet energy demand. Energy demand will be met by a global energy mix that is transitioning from a mix dominated by fossil fuels to a more balanced energy portfolio. The emerging energy mix will rely on clean energy. Clean energy refers to energy that has little or no detrimental impact on the environment.
A solar-powered cooled hard hat can reduce the skin temperature of workers by up to 10 C. They will first be issued to workers on construction sites for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar this summer. A solar panel embedded in the top of the helmet powers a fan that draws in hot air, which is cooled by phase change materials and filtered onto the worker's head. Including a backup battery, 300 grams of weight are added to the helmet at an additional cost of USD 20.
