Environmental advocates say some of America's most iconic species are getting squeezed under policies intended to boost American energy dominance. Trump administration officials counter that they are taking reasonable steps to protect wildlife while opening up public lands to more drilling. The US Interior Department on 7 August launched an overhaul to an Obama-era plan to protect sage grouse that it says aims to preserve the species of bird while expanding opportunities for oil development in western states where they live.
The Hydrogen Offshore Production project identifies an alternative to decommissioning by providing reuse options for offshore infrastructure. It aims to prove the feasibility of decentralized hydrogen generation, storage, and distribution solutions to provide a bulk hydrogen solution. Two technologies that may play a part in the decarbonization of the UK energy business are carbon capture, use, and storage and the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier and energy storer. This approach builds on the UK’s gas-network infrastructure, which can be repurposed to avoid becoming stranded.
Most crude exports coming out of the North Sea since March have been destined for Asia, where floating storage levels remain high. The drop in US LNG exports comes amid a combination of weak demand, ample supply, additional capacity coming on line, and flexibility to cancel US cargoes. The offshore export terminal, capable of accommodating very large crude carriers, could provide access to international markets in Asia and Europe—and higher prices—for Permian, Cushing, and Eagle Ford crude oil.
