Study Sees a Limit to Gas Substitution for Coal

The estimates of the amount of natural gas yet to be unearthed through hydraulic fracturing or “fracgas” vary widely, but there is a “determined limit” on coal-to-gas substitution that is “far short of driving coal out of the power market,” according to a new study by members of the Yale Graduates Energy Study Group.

Transportation Notes

In an update on its 500 Line force majeure declared last week in connection with Atchafalaya River flooding, Tennessee said it had determined that the pipe section between Main Line Valves (MLV) 516 and 518 did not need to be isolated along with the segment between MLVs 518 and 521 after all. Thus three meters that it had subsequently added to an original list of five slated for shut-in were allowed to keep flowing. Tennessee also said it had returned to service Monday the 800 Line after completing an outage from MLV 827-1 to MLV 830-1 that had required suspension of physical flow at two meters; however, Station 834 will remain offline through Wednesday for various repairs and maintenance.
