U.S. Task Force’s Early Findings Show LNG Safe for Rail System

U.S. Task Force’s Early Findings Show LNG Safe for Rail System

A task force examining the safety of moving liquefied natural gas (LNG) by rail across the United States said the super-chilled fuel has been transported safely by sea and road for decades, as well as by rail in other countries, but the group noted more research is needed. The task force was convened by the…

Petchem, LNG Projects Seen Leading GHG Emissions Growth from U.S. Oil and Gas Sector Through 2030

Expansions of oil and gas activity and infrastructure in the Gulf Coast and Southwest regions of the United States could contribute annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of 541 million tons (mmt) of CO2 equivalent (CO2e) by 2030, according to a new study published by the University of Texas at Austin (UT).
