U.S. agency won't let company resume drilling for gas pipeline 28.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Columbus, Ohio • A federal agency has told a company building a high-pressure natural gas pipeline it cannot resume drilling beneath creeks in southeast Ohio and northern West Virginia. The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/2qu1x2r ) the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Thursday rejected Texas-based Energy Transfers’ request to resume horizontal drilling. The $4.2 billion pipeline project is being built to carry gas from Appalachian shale fields across Ohio and to other states.

These Stunning Photos Show the Real Cost of a Pipeline 27.5.2017 Mother Jones
This story was originally published by Reveal and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. As police in riot gear swept the last protesters from camps near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in late February, two dozen men and women arrived in this small ranching and lumber town 1,200 miles to the northwest. They were armed with maps, posters, doughnuts and coffee, and hoped to sell locals on an oil pipeline—one larger and potentially more hazardous than the Dakota Access. They wore its name on their matching green jackets: Trans Mountain. Town officials were already on board. They had signed on in exchange for about $330,000 (420,000 Canadian dollars) from the pipeline's American owner, Kinder Morgan Inc. But a few miles downriver, the Lower Nicola Indian Band was putting the company's offer to a vote the following day. The 14 other First Nations directly on the pipeline route already had agreed to welcome crews onto their reserves in exchange for money and jobs from the company. ...

The Mystery Behind the Half-Million Dollars Michael Flynn Received as a Foreign Agent 26.5.2017 Mother Jones
It is hard to keep track of all the Michael Flynn scandals. The former national security adviser for President Donald Trump—who lasted only 22 days in the job—is at the center of various investigations. He has drawn scrutiny for his contacts with the Russian government (and for lying about those contacts), for his pocketing of $45,000 from Kremlin-backed RT (and his failure to disclose the payment), for his lobbying for Turkish interests (and his failure to disclose that as well), and for attending a meeting with Turkish officials during which a plan reportedly was discussed for abducting a US-based foe of that country's president. But one Flynn mystery has received little attention: What was the original source of the $530,000 he was paid last summer and fall—when he was Trump's top national security aide—to be an agent for Turkish interests? In March, Flynn, who weeks earlier had been fired from the White House job for lying about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, retroactively filed ...

OPEC extends output cut, but big oil price increase unlikely 26.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Vienna • An alliance of many of the world’s biggest oil-producing nations extended their agreement to cut output for an additional nine months — an effort to support prices that will prove difficult in the face of growing production from the U.S. Thursday’s decision by the OPEC cartel — now at 14 members with the entry of Equatorial Guinea — and 10 other countries led by Russia, means that the reductions of 1.8 million barrels a day agreed on in November will stay in place until March.

Could the Aliso Canyon Natural Gas Leak Happen in Ohio? 25.5.2017 Truthout.com
Ohio has the most underground natural gas storage wells of any state and the highest number of those which might be vulnerable to leaks, according to a new  study  by researchers at Harvard University and Boston Children's Hospital. Of Ohio's 3,318 underground wells used for natural gas storage, 902 are repurposed wells. Those wells were initially drilled for something else, such as the extraction of oil and gas. That means they're more likely to share age and design characteristics that contributed to the four-month methane leak at  Aliso Canyon  in California from 2015 to 2016, said Drew Michanowicz at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He is lead author of the study published Tuesday in Environmental Research Letters. Ohio has about two dozen active facilities that put natural gas into wells under pressure and take it out on an as-needed basis, compared to 47 in Pennsylvania and 44 in Michigan. Each facility can have dozens or hundreds of storage wells connected to it. "The primary ...

OPEC likely to extend production cuts into next year 25.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Vienna • OPEC countries and other producers including oil giant Russia are backing prolonging last year’s production cut to shore up crude prices, strongly indicating that an extension is a done deal even before they meet formally on the issue Thursday. The output reductions have been in effect since November, when the 13-country Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries agreed to cut production by 1.2 million barrels a day, while non-OPEC countries chipped in with a further 600,000-barr...
