Libya’s NOC Will Resume Phase 2 At Top Gas Field Soon

Oil Price reported: Libya’s National Oil Corporation will soon resume the Phase 2 development of the Bahr Essalam field—the largest producing offshore gas deposit in the country—and by the end of the year, the phase should be completed. This is what NOC’s chairman Mustafa Sanalla said in a statement following a meeting with Italian Eni’s head, Claudio Descalzi. Eni and NOC operate Bahr Essalam jointly. The second phase of development of the field began in July this year and was supposed to be finalized last month, but work was delayed. This phase should add, according to Eni, 400 million cu ft of natural gas to its daily production, which now stands at 700 million cu ft. The field’s reserves are calculated at more than 260 billion cubic meters of natural gas. At the time when Phase 2 was launched, NOC’s Sanalla said the field’s development would benefit Libya’s economy by reducing its dependence on liquid fuel imports for its power plants.

Columbia Gas Pledges To Promote Energy Efficiency In Affected Merrimack Valley Homes

WBUR reported: Lawrence resident Sadia Jiminian lost her heat, hot water and stove as a result of the Sept. 13 gas explosions and fires, and spent weeks cooking on a hot plate, an induction stovetop, a crock pot and an electric skillet. “I’ve been creative,” she says with a laugh. Jiminian wanted to replace her condemned appliances with energy-efficient models, but says Columbia Gas didn’t give her the option. She received a flyer from the utility, for instance, showing the choices for a replacement clothes dryer and stove on offer. Neither was energy efficient. Jiminian says she felt pressured to take what she can get. Like when a truck showed up — unannounced on a Sunday — with water boilers for her triple decker that were not energy efficient, and a lower quality than the ones she had before. “My husband told them, ‘Take that stuff back,’ ” recalls Jiminian.
