U.S. Coal Proving Worthy Opponent to NatGas
Natural gas traders haven’t been able to figure out where prices consistently are headed, but some things are becoming clearer: output has remained flat for close to a year.

NOAA Still Expects ‘Above Normal’ Hurricane Season

TheU.S. Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) has updated oil and gas storage tank emission standards issued in April 2012 to allow the phase-in of emission control deadlines and to alleviate confusion over implementation. Higher-emitting tanks will be affected by the new requirements first. The rule changes also provide time for operators to acquire and install necessary emissions controls. The changes are in response to stakeholder comments that revealed that more storage tanks will be coming online than EPA had originally thought. Storage tanks that emit six or more tons of volatile organic compounds (VOC) per year must reduce emissions by 95%. Two control deadlines were established by the latest changes. Tanks that come online after April 12, 2013 are likely to have higher emissions and must control VOC emissions within 60 days or by April 15, 2014, whichever is later. Tanks that came online before April 12, 2013 are likely to have lower emissions and must control VOC emissions by April 15, 2015. The updatedstandardsalso establish an alternative emissions limit that would allow owners/operators to remove controls from tanks if they can demonstrate that the tanks emit less than four tons per year of VOC emissions without controls.
