  • Canadian Gas Prices Rise After New Pipeline Rules

    Canadian natural gas is trading at the highest price relative to U.S. benchmarks in about 10 months after producers cut back on drilling and a rule change on a key Alberta pipeline system last year helped to better manage flows of the fuel. The discount on gas traded at Alberta’s AECO hub versus the Henry Hub in the U.S. shrank to 4 cents […]

  • How Do Pipelines Cross Rivers?

    In order for pipelines to transport the energy we need across the country, pipelines must sometimes cross rivers. The environmental protection of these rivers is on the minds of Americans, and it’s on the minds of pipeline companies as well. That’s why the industry has started using technically advanced construction methods such as […]

  • Installing Pipelines in Our Marine Environments

    Laying pipe on the seafloor can pose a number of challenges, especially if the water is deep. There are three main ways that subsea pipe is laid: S-lay, J-lay and tow-in. The pipe lay vessel is integral to the success of the installation. Buoyancy affects the pipe lay process. In the water, the pipe weighs less if it is filled with air, which puts […]

  • Know What’s Below: Pipeline Safety

    Did you know that there are approximately 2.06 million miles of distribution pipelines used to deliver natural gas to most homes and businesses? According to National Transportation Safety Board statistics, pipelines are the safest and most efficient means of transporting natural gas and petroleum products, but they do have certain risks. Before a […]

  • Ways Pipelines Actually Curb Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    From carbon emissions to misconceptions about spills, pipelines sometimes receive negative press regarding the environment, but the truth is that pipelines are one of the safest ways to transport the oil and gas we depend on. Pipelines transport natural gas and liquid hydrocarbons, such as oil, from supply basins to various areas where they are […]

  • Russian Gas Pipeline to Europe Faces Delay Due to U.S. Sanctions

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said Saturday a major Russian gas pipeline to Europe would be delayed due to U.S. sanctions on the project, a slight setback to a German-Russian venture that has emerged as a major flashpoint in both countries’ relations with Washington. Putin says Nord Stream 2 will now be completed by the end of the year or […]

  • Greece, Cyprus, Israel Sign EastMed Gas Pipeline Deal

    Greece, Cyprus, and Israel have signed an agreement to construct a 1,900-kilometer undersea pipeline to carry natural gas from the eastern Mediterranean to Europe and potentially help the continent reduce its dependency on Russia for energy supplies. The deal comes as Russia prepares to start pumping gas this year through two new pipelines to […]

  • Oil and Gas Companies Face Challenges During the Winter Months

    The winter weather creates a number of hindrances on refinery operations, pipelines, and railways, causing the nation’s energy infrastructure to deliver much-needed fuel to demanding markets while working around winter’s obstacles. Refineries and Transportation Many refineries have had to halt operations due to power outages and the […]

  • Aging Pipelines: Replace or Rehabilitate?

    There are millions of miles of oil and gas pipelines in the United States—2.6 million miles to be exact, according to the Global Energy Institute of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Those pipelines power our daily lives and businesses. However, much of the pipeline infrastructure is old. In fact, back in 2014, Inside Energy reported that 45% […]

  • Landslide Damage Can Be Repaired

    For engineers who work on pipelines, there are external threats to be aware of and respond to. Lines that cross through hilly or mountainous terrain are susceptible to land movement or subsidence. Studying the terrain and the types of landmass movement is essential for engineers and geologists; they can play a role in determining where a pipeline […]
