Court Rejects Greens’ Plea to Stop Natural Gas Export Projects

The Hill reported: A federal appeals court Wednesday rejected an environmental group’s lawsuits trying to overturn federal approval for three liquefied natural gas (LNG) export projects. The Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia said that the Sierra Club’s challenges to export facilities in Maryland, Louisiana and Texas,fail for the same reasons that the same court ruled against the group in a similar case concerning a different project in August. “In a very recent case, Sierra Club v. U.S. Department of Energy (Freeport), this court denied a petition by Sierra Club challenging, under the same two statutes, the Department [of Energy]’s approval of an LNG export application from a fourth facility. The court’s decision in Freeport largely governs the resolution of the instant cases,” the court’s three judges wrote in the brief judgment. The projects at issue in Wednesday’s cases were Dominion Energy’s Cove Point facility in Maryland, scheduled to open within weeks; Cheniere Energy Inc.’s Sabine Pass facility in Louisiana, which opened last year; and Cheniere’s Corpus Christi, Texas, project, due to open next year.

ONGC to Double Gas Output by FY’22

Economic Times reported: ONGCBSE -1.52 % plans to nearly double natural gas production in four years as it invests billions of dollars to produce from newer discoveries, the state-owned firm’s chairman Shashi Shanker said. India’s biggest oil and gas producer is investing Rs 92,000 crore in 35 major projects which include 14 to bring new finds to production and six to improve recovery from the ageing fields. “We have almost 70 per cent of oil production coming from mature fields. My primary challenge is to step up production,” said Shanker, who took over as the Chairman of Oil & Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) last month. Plans on table would help raise crude oil production from 22.25 million tonnes in 2016-17 to 27 MT by 2021- 22, he said. For more visit economictimes.indiatimes.com or click http://bit.ly/2A0vNHw
