FROM THE EDITOR: METHANE EMISSIONS IN THE CROSSHAIRS
The industry must eliminate emissions and demonstrate to other stakeholders that it is doing so.
ONE-DYAS SEEKS MORE WEALTH FROM THE NORTH SEA
As the company considers all its options, including a sale, there are still plenty of oil and gas projects that could, and should, be developed in the interests of the dutch economy, the producer’s ceo tells NGW.
CHINESE CARBON MARKET GETS OFF TO LACKLUSTRE START
Trading in China’s carbon market has thinned since its launch in midjuly, but together with additional policies, it has nevertheless sent signals to local governments and companies to reduce coal use as much as possible
SPAIN’S CAPACITY MARKET PASSES FIRST HURDLES
Spain is rapidly closing its unprofitable coal-fired power plants, and there are fears its 26 GW strong fleet of CCGT power plants will suffer the same fate unless Madrid gets its much-awaited capacity market up and running soon.
ALBANIAN GAS AMBITIONS
The government in Tirana wants to give natural gas a greater role in the economy, but this is not a new plan.
THE IEF’S METHOD FOR METHANE
The Riyadhbased forum wants to establish a costeffective methodology that can be accepted by all stakeholders
OGMP 2.0: CREATING A GOLD STANDARD FOR METHANE MONITORING
With methane emissions moving higher up the climate agenda, the Oil and Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP), led by the UN Environment Programme and involving many of the world’s leading oil and gas companies, launched its OGMP2.0 framework last year.
KAYRROS: TRACKING METHANE FROM SPACE
Kayrros co-founder Antoine Halff believes satellite technology is ready to unlock massive reductions in methane emissions.
MIQ: THE CASE FOR VOLUNTARY ACTION
MiQ’s developers welcome the incoming regulation, but still see voluntary action as playing a crucial role in addressing emissions
TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE LNG
The global LNG trade bills itself as sustainable, but to truly get there, it must deal with the methane shadow.
TECHNOLOGY: TACKLING METHANE EMISSIONS
The natural gas industry has steadily introduced new technologies to reduce methane leaks, but more will need to be done to reflect the increased focus on this potent greenhouse gas.
FROM THE EDITOR: A LACK OF GAS MEANS HIGHER COAL BURN
High gas prices globally mean a fallback on coal-fired generation, highlighting the dangers of the political swing against natural gas.
JAPAN WEIGHS ITS OPTIONS
The Japanese government has released draft proposals aimed at achieving more stringent greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions by the end of the decade. The proposals include a sharp, but most likely unrealistic, fall in gas use and thus LNG imports.
MEASURING THE BENEFIT OF COAL-TO-LNG SWITCHING
Measuring total LNG supply chain methane emissions is imprecise, but there is an even bigger data gap when it comes to coal. Without accurate measurement, the benefits of coal-to-LNG switching risk being under-appreciated.
FROM THE EDITOR: A GREEN DEAL WITH RUSSIA AND CHINA?
For too many governments and NGOs, climate policy
BASHING BLUE HYDROGEN: FALSE NUMBERS, FLAWED MODELS
A recent scientific paper claiming that “blue hydrogen” produces more greenhouse gas emissions than coal or diesel oil has received wide publicity. Independent energy expert Roger Arnold explains why the numbers and models used in the paper are untenable.
WHAT IS THE OUTLOOK FOR HYDROGEN?
One of Australia’s richest men, steelmaker Andrew Forrest, believes green hydrogen will become the biggest source of energy in the world by mid-century, and rejects blue (natural gas based) hydrogen as a “false solution”.
INTERVIEW FRIEDBERT PFLÜGER, CHAIRMAN, SUPERVISORY BOARD, ZUKUNFT GAS
