East Africa's oil ambitions depend on pipelines 25.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
A decade after its first big oil find, East Africa’s emergence as a crude exporter has been hindered by security and cost concerns that left the region building two pipelines instead of one. Uganda and Kenya are developing two new basins and originally agreed to build one line to connect the landlocked discoveries to the coast. That changed last year, when Uganda chose a more southerly 870-mile route through Tanzania, citing lower transit prices. Kenya will go it alone with an 865-kilometer line...

Trump weighing Eni bid to drill in Arctic waters 17.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
The Interior Department is weighing Eni SpA’s request to explore for oil in waters north of Alaska, giving the Trump administration a chance to reverse course from former President Barack Obama’s attempt to curtail Arctic drilling. Eni’s exploration well would be in an area it previously leased from the federal government, and so it isn’t covered by the executive order Obama issued in December to block the sale of new drilling rights within huge swaths of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas.

Here's What a Zinke-Led Interior Department Will Look Like 16.3.2017 Mother Jones
This story was originally published by High Country News and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. Amid the flurry of Trump administration appointments in recent months, Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke was one of the less controversial. The former Montana congressman says climate change is not a "hoax" and federal lands should not be transferred to states en masse. His January Senate confirmation hearing went fairly smoothly, with none of the major gaffes or arguments that have plagued other appointees' hearings. So far, his stated priorities for Interior have been vague but unsurprising: rebuilding trust between the public and the department, increasing public lands access for sportsmen, and improving outdated infrastructure at national parks. But considering the controversial issues embedded in those priorities he'll soon have to wrangle, the ride won't stay smooth for long. Perhaps the biggest questions around Zinke's Interior are how he will balance a mining and ...
