In a critical step to furthering petrochemical development in the Appalachian Basin, a team of researchers has concluded after a one-year study that there are multiple options for underground natural gas liquids (NGL) storage in various formations throughout the region.

An extensive study that began last year with the backing of a Pittsburgh-based charitable organization and some of the region’s major producers to determine the potential of underground natural gas liquids (NGL) storage in the Appalachian Basin is almost finished.
U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) has introduced a bill that would require federal agencies to study the feasibility of an underground ethane storage and distribution hub in the Appalachian Basin.
Pennsylvania has a “once-in-a-generation opportunity” to snare between $2.7 billion and $3.7 billion in natural gas liquid (NGL) investment, sparking a “manufacturing renaissance” that includes more ethane cracking plants, petrochemical and plastics facilities, Gov. Tom Wolf said Tuesday.
Despite industry contraction in late 2014, the oil and natural gas sector has continued to be a key economic engine for North Dakota, contributing $34.25 billion in 2015, the latest full calendar year statistics show, a state university report said Tuesday.
Some earthquakes in Southern California in the early 20th century, including a temblor that killed 120 people in Long Beach, could have been caused by oil drilling in the area, according to a report by two U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) geologists in Pasadena, CA, that was published Tuesday.
More than 200 environmental and advocacy groups in a letter Monday asked the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to revise last year’s findings that hydraulic fracturing (fracking) has not had “widespread, systemic impacts” on drinking water.
The Bureau of Economic Geology Shale Production and Reserves Study at the University of Texas at Austin has been awarded a $350,000 grant by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for an 18-month study reviewing prior analysis of major U.S. shale gas plays: the Barnett, Fayetteville, Haynesville and Marcellus.
A new study conducted by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has found a statistical link between unconventional oil and gas drilling in Pennsylvania and an increased risk of flare-ups in asthma patients.
A Colorado ballot initiative to increase setback requirements for oil and gas activity could cost the state 54,000 jobs and reduce its gross domestic product (GDP) by $7.1 billion over the first five years, according to a new study from the University of Colorado.
