Texas likely to add record utility-scale solar capacity in the next two years
Texas likely to add record utility-scale solar capacity in the next two years

AJOT | April 21, 2021 | Energy News

Texas, already the U.S. state with the most wind energy capacity, is catching up to California in utility-scale solar capacity. California currently has the most installed utility-scale solar capacity of any state. According to survey reports on EIA’s Preliminary Monthly Electric Generator Inventory, Texas will add 10 gigawatts (GW) of utility-scale solar capacity by the end of 2022, compared with 3.2 GW in California. One-third of the utility-scale solar capacity planned to come online in the United States in the next two years (30 GW) will be in Texas.

EIA expects US natural gas consumption to continue decreasing in 2021 and 2022

AJOT | April 20, 2021 | Energy News

EIA’s April Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO) forecasts decreased total U.S. natural gas consumption in 2021 and 2022 following a decline in 2020. Consumption in 2020 was 1.9 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) lower than the all-time high of 85.1 Bcf/d set in 2019. Total consumption declined as a result of the economic slowdown associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and lower heating demand amid milder temperatures. Although we expect natural gas consumption to continue to fall in 2021 and 2022, changes in sector-level natural gas consumption show different trends than in 2020.

The X-gas Project is a series of innovative and unconventional, medium-capacity Liquified Gas / Gas bunkering tankers designed by KNUD E. HANSEN. The flagship design of the project is a 126.5 metre vessel with a total cargo capacity of 9,000 cubic metres, split between two Type C tanks. The platform, however, is highly customizable and can be tailored to accommodate a range of tank capacities, as well as various containment systems including membrane tanks.

Last winter saw larger-than-average US natural gas withdrawals from storage
Last winter saw larger-than-average US natural gas withdrawals from storage

AJOT | April 16, 2021 | Energy News

Significantly colder-than-normal temperatures in the Lower 48 states in late January through mid-February resulted in increased heating demand for natural gas in the United States, despite an otherwise warmer-than-normal winter. As a result, the winter had larger-than-average winter natural gas withdrawals. Before the cold snap, winter temperatures had been relatively mild, but a combination of increased heating demand, record liquefied natural gas (LNG) and pipeline exports, and decreased natural gas production contributed to the withdrawal activity during February.
