N.D. Researchers to Study Underground Storage of Natural Gas

Bismarck Tribune reported: As North Dakota oil operators struggle to meet natural gas flaring targets, a new research project will explore the possibility of temporarily storing gas in underground rock formations. The North Dakota Industrial Commission approved $140,000 on Friday to evaluate the potential of injecting produced natural gas underground and retrieving it years later when the state has additional infrastructure. Lynn Helms, director of the Department of Mineral Resources, said temporarily storing the gas underground could be an innovative solution for the Bakken. “The alternative is more flaring or we really limit oil production growth. And we really don’t want to do either one of those,” Helms told members of the Industrial Commission. “If we can innovate here, we may have a way to allow oil production growth and not flare gas.” North Dakota produces nearly 1.27 million barrels of oil per day, a new record set in July, according to preliminary figures released Friday.

Court Rejects Nuns’ Lawsuit Intended to Halt Pipeline

Heartland reported: The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a religious -freedom lawsuit brought by a group of Roman Catholic nuns from Pennsylvania to halt the Atlantic Sunrise natural gas pipeline, which is under construction through land they own. A panel of judges on the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a lawsuit brought by a group of Roman Catholic nuns from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to halt the Atlantic Sunrise natural gas pipeline, which is under construction through land they own. The Adorers of the Blood of Christ, a group of nuns who built an outdoor prayer chapel in the proposed path of the pipeline, brought the lawsuit under the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act, challenging the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERCs) decision to allow energy developers to use eminent domain authority to take part of their land.
