$550 Million Texas Natural Gas Project Gets Tax Abatements from Nueces County

Chron reported: A $550 million natural gas liquids separation project received eight years of tax abatements from Nueces County. The Houston company Permico Midstream Partners’ Texas NGL Project includes a natural gas liquids fractionator that can process around 300,000 barrels of liquids a day and separate them into their component parts, such as ethane, propane and butane. The facility would be connected to more than 500 miles of pipelines from the Permian Basin in West Texas to the Gulf Coast. Ethane is used in plastics production and as a petrochemical feedstock. The Nueces County commissioners court approved tax abatements that would be 100 percent for up to three years of construction and another five years of 70 percent tax abatements.

Clean Energy is Catching Up to Natural Gas

Vox reported: For around 10 years, the conventional wisdom in the energy sector has been that natural gas is ascendant. Coal is dirty, and it’s getting expensive, but it’s too early to jump all the way to renewable energy. To get from the fossil fuel present to the renewable future, we will need … a bridge. Natural gas is meant to be that bridge, a way to reduce our emissions relative to coal while we work on scaling up renewables. (The shift from coal to gas is a big part of why US emissions have declined over the past few years.) In its role as a bridge, natural gas seems to have a comfortable future. First, it will replace coal and nuclear “baseload” plants, and then, as renewables grow to supply the bulk of power, it will provide flexibility, filling in the gaps where variable renewables (wind and solar) fall short. By playing these multiple roles, natural gas will long outlive coal and prove useful well into the latter half of the 21st century. It will enjoy a long, slow exit. Or so the story goes.
