Another oil leak reported in So. Utah 3.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Days after an unreported Citation Oil and Gas Corp. spill within the Grand Staircase came to light, the U.S. Forest Service announced Wednesday a second leak from the same company. The size of the spill in Dixie National Forest remains unclear, according to Forest Service spokesman Joe Harris. He said the agency is unsure whether the leak exceeds 10 barrels, the prerequisite for a “reportable incident” under federal guidelines. But it could be much larger, Harris said. “We wanted to get this [...

Neighbors bicker over forced drilling 31.3.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
New Bedford, Pa. • An energy company is dusting off an old, unused state law that can force property owners to accept oil and gas drilling under their land, pitting neighbor against neighbor in a Pennsylvania community and raising the possibility that lawmakers will have to take sides. Houston-based Hilcorp seeks to use a 1961 Pennsylvania law to drill under the property of four holdout landowners in New Bedford, near the Ohio border an hour north of Pittsburgh. The concept, known as “forced po...

Washington • The White House announced a wide-ranging plan Friday aimed at cutting methane emissions from oil and gas drilling, landfills and other sources.

Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas released by landfills, cattle and leaks from oil and gas produ...

Williams oil well near Hayden back in the game, Dill Gulch on deck 28.3.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Colorado imposed stringent new air pollution regulations on the oil and gas industry in late February, but when Shell Oil goes before the Routt County Planning Commission on April 17 seeking to drill two new oil wells south of Hayden, the need to capture volatile organic compounds at the well site will seem like standard operating procedure. The State Air Quality Control Commission voted in February to require oil and gas wells across the state, including existing wells, to capture the air pollutants known as VOCs, including methane, that have contributed to violations of federal ozone standards, particularly on the Front Range. As it turns out, Shell Oil already had agreed to live up to similar standards in Routt County and language to that effect is included in the two new permit applications. Shell officials announced in August 2013 their company’s intention to gradually withdraw from exploratory drilling operations in Northwest Colorado. However, in September they added that they would ...

US-South Korea war games loom over Korean reunions 24.2.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Seoul, South Korea • A year ago, North Korea vowed nuclear attacks to retaliate for U.S.-South Korean war games. But the start Monday of this year’s joint military drills comes as Pyongyang allows wrenching reunions of elderly Koreans separated since the Korean War. As always with the rival Koreas, cold political calculations loom behind the scenes of pure emotion. The reasons for Pyongyang’s about-face are seen as having more to do with the impoverished country’s desire to drive a wedge between...

Op-ed: Sage grouse protection needn’t stop drilling, ranching 22.2.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
When the Mormon pioneers crossed the prairie en route to the Salt Lake Valley, there were an estimated 16 million greater sage grouse in the West — a source of sustenance that they no doubt relied on. In an astonishingly short time since, we have reduced the sage grouse population to approximately 10 percent of its original size by land-use practices that have steadily degraded sagebrush steppe ecosystems. The good news is that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is keeping a careful eye on the...

Routt commissioners: What's good for Front Range oil, gas wells is good here, too 20.2.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The Routt County Board of Commissioners made it a point this week to say it is not in step with neighboring counties, including Moffat, that have asked the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission to leave them out of proposed new rules meant to curtail air pollutants emitted in the region’s oil and gas fields. All three commissioners signed a letter to the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission in late December indicating their support for statewide application of the new rules when they become formalized. However, five counties in Western Colorado have formed a coalition to resist enforcement of new air quality standards on the Western Slope. The counties in the Energy Producing Attainment Counties said that although they support strong regulation of oil and gas operations, they think the enforcement in their counties is premature given a lack of science documenting a widespread air pollution problem. They include Garfield, Mesa, Moffat, Rio Blanco and Montezuma (Cortez) counties, ...
