Instead of water, each of the two plants will use two powerful air-cooled "Harriet" gas turbines and one air-cooled steam turbine developed by GE. “The technology uses the same cooling principle as the radiator in your car."
"Current federal well-drilling regulations are more than 30 years old and they simply have not kept pace with the technical complexities of today’s hydraulic fracturing operations."
Europe’s solar power installations now total around 90 gigawatts of capacity. Experts had predicted almost 34 gigawatts will gradually disappear from the system if Friday turns out to be a clear day.
Currently, only the U.S., Canada, China and Argentina maintain commercial production of oil from shale deposits as large oil companies cut back on operations in Europe.
The continuing production increases in the U.S. contributed to rising global oil supplies and prices that are now trading at less than half of their mid-2014 peaks, a trend that led domestic companies to shut down rigs and lay off thousands.
Farmers, ethanol producers and representatives of the renewable energy industry testified to the committee that the tax would hurt rural economies and cause plant closures.
We read about the challenges in the media, but it is with the help of innovations in the chemical industry that hydraulic fracturing becomes efficient, safe and sustainable.
