The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), working with the Gas Technology Institute, Laredo Petroleum, and other industry partners, has collected what is possibly the world’s most comprehensive hydraulic-fracturing research dataset in unconventional shale.
Researchers from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) have teamed with the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) on a multi-part project to investigate the feasibility of injecting captured carbon dioxide (CO2) into organic-rich rocks, deep underground, to permanently store the greenhouse gas while simultaneously recovering natural gas.
The Energy Department announced today that it has issued a final authorization to Emera CNG, LLC (Emera) to export domestically produced compressed natural gas to countries that do not have a Free Trade Agreement with the United States.
A new study led by West Virginia University, supported by DOE's National Energy Technology Laboratory, suggests that Utica Shale could be the largest natural gas field in the United States, if fully realized.
Deputy Secretary Sherwood-Randall recently traveled to Alaska, where she met with STEM students, toured an Arctic natural gas project, and met with other officials to discuss liquefied natural gas export projects.
