Nine research projects are getting a federal funding boost to advance methods and potentially reduce costs to capture and store carbon from the air, also known as direct air capture (DAC). The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) said it has granted $24 million to universities and national labs across the country. The aim of the…

Canadians will buy American if the United States border stays open for natural gas and oil flows, according to a defense of free trade crafted by the Canadian Energy Research Institute (CERI).
The University of Calgary, in collaboration with Mexican universities and research institutes, has received C$44 million (MX$646.94 million) in funding for four knowledge networks to support energy reforms in Mexico. The funding commitment follows from a partnership the university signed in December 2015 with the Mexican Ministry of Energy (SENER). The research focuses on four areas: heavy oil, mature and unconventional oil resources, pipeline loss reduction, and industry and labor market development. Research networks will be created through the University of Calgary’sGlobal Research Initiative in Unconventional Hydrocarbon Resources. The networks will be led by the University of Calgary and the lead Mexican partner institutions: the Instituto Mexicano del Petróleo and Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey. Funding is administered by CONACYT, a national funding organization in Mexico that works to advance science and technology. Research will be developed over the next three years.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved Port Arthur Pipeline LLC’s (PAPLC) planned Port Arthur Pipeline Louisiana Connector Project for pre-filing review [PF17-5]. The project would entail construction of 135 miles of 42-inch diameter natural gas pipeline; up to eight interconnects; receipt meter stations; and appurtenances in Evangeline, Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, and Cameron parishes in Louisiana and in Jefferson County, TX. PAPLC also plans to construct a compressor station in Allen Parish, LA. The project would transport up to 2.0 Bcf/d of additional feed gas to the Port Arthur Liquefaction Project, which is being developed by Port Arthur LNG LLC and PALNG Common Facilities Co. LLC. PAPLC is expected to file an application for the pipeline project by October.
