Nat Gas News – November 16, 2017

Natural Gas Flaring Exceeds State’s Limits in September

West Fargo Pioneer reported: Director of Mineral Resources Lynn Helms said the flaring of 323 million cubic feet per day was caused by unanticipated maintenance problems with pipelines, natural gas processing plants and compressor stations. Under guidelines adopted by the North Dakota Industrial Commission, oil companies are supposed to capture 85 percent of natural gas or limit flaring to no more than 15 percent. Flaring increased from 14 percent in August to 17 percent in September, an increase of 54 million cubic feet per day. Helms said the vast majority of the increased flaring was caused by unforeseeable circumstances and likely won’t lead to regulators requiring companies to restrict oil and natural gas production. Justin Kringstad, director of the North Dakota Pipeline Authority, said he does not expect the higherthan- average flaring to continue into October and November.

Construction Begins on 650-Mile Long Natural Gas Pipeline

KrisTV reported: Construction has begun for what’s being called the “natural gas super-highway.” The 650-mile long pipeline called the EPIC NGL Pipeline spans from New Mexico through Texas to Corpus Christi. The natural gas pipeline is expected to produce 375,000 barrels per day and will be run by EPIC Y Grade Pipeline in connection with BP Energy. Today we caught up with the President of the Texas Oil and Gas Association and asked him what this major project means for not only Texas but the Coastal Bend. Todd Staples, President of the Texas Oil & Gas Association said “The unique thing about the Coastal Bend region is you have The Port which is the anchor. So you have Eagle Ford Shale coming to The Port, Permian Basin coming to The Port and it’s going to mean good things for this community for a long time.” Construction on the pipeline is expected to be finished in early 2019 and will serve multiple points in the Delaware and Midland basins.
