THREAD: Watching @txrrc meeting today at 9:30 CT to discuss prorationing #oil production. Here's some background on the request, which the RRC hasn't granted since 1973: law360.com/articles/12597…
The meeting comes 2 days after OPEC+ announced historic production cuts, and it'll be interesting to see how that colors the RRC's discussion and potential actions: law360.com/articles/12631…
And @APIenergy just put out its statement opposing any production cuts. The group will be one of 55(!) scheduled speakers at today's meeting.

THIS IS YOUR FUTURE
Since I've not been paid or replied to, I am declassifying. One of the biggest hurdles in building high speed rail is paying for the project. The solution is built in from the beginning. Its not just that you build it, its how you build it.

Right after hurricane Harvey Texas was flooded and I was talking about how the maglev would still be running because it was elevated. All you need to do is make it to the terminal. Thats when Trump declared National emergency and classified my work under nuclear preparedness.
Imagine a bridge, that instead of crossing the highway, runs lengthwise. It's elevated so it doesn't get in the way of animals or humans. It never stops, it never slows. Because it is elevated, accidents are almost unheard of. Making emergency evacuation safe and quick.

#RyanDawson: ".. Why is #Turkey so beholden to #Israel? I like you to see this. I has over half-a-million views.

it in terms of #US-#interest, the #puzzle is very easy. The US acts for only one state's interest, and that's #Israel.

#AIPAC purchased #Congress with a foreign government's financial backing.

Since we learn nothing in #school,

Pipelines are not just for transporting oil and gas, they are for political #leverage as well. Each country a #pipeline passes through

🇬🇷 [SMALL THREAD 1/4] Gas of #Crete, not new.
We read these days about the recent discoveries of gas South of Crete. Not new, we know (via USGS) that the area is rich in #natgas. I wrote about this many times (follows):
This is why:
1. #eastmed #pipeline design foresees Crete (feed in of Crete natgas (pic2)
2. Tsipras government launched in 2017 the tendering for Crete Blocks (pic1), where we have already some companies awarded (pic3)
3. what is new now, is that we start piling the first confirmations of USGS estimations. Still we have a long road to go (more drilling, studies, investments...)

#Germany #Russia #USA #Nordstream2

The company Allseas stopped its work on #Nordstream2 and the last 300km. The #US punitive measures of the "Law for the Protection of #Europe's Energy Security"
target the operating #companies of the highly #specialized #ships with which the #pipes for the pipeline are laid through the #BalticSea. As a punitive measure, entry bans are provided as well as the freezing of assets in the #USA.
#Washington argues that #Germany will move to #Moscow depending on the pipeline. Democratic Senators Ted Cruz and Ron Johnson wrote a letter to Allseas chief Edward Heerema.However, if the company continues "even for a single day" after signing the US Sanctions Act, it could face

#Germany #Russia #USA #Denmark #Bornholm

The #sanctions against the #BalticSea pipeline decided by the #US #Senate meet with resistance in #Moscow, criticism also came from #German Chancellor #Merkel. The #Kremlin still expects #NordStream2 to be completed.
Meanwhile, #Russia accuses the #UnitedStates of violating the law with pipeline sanctions.The punitive measures #violate international law and are an example of unfair competition, said Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskow. "Such actions do not please Moscow or the #European capitals;
they do not like #Berlin or #Paris," said Peskow. He accused the #US of violating #international law and "expanding its artificial dominance to the #European market". Chancellor Angela #Merkel has also criticized the #US Congress's sanction resolution.

and off we go #EnergyTwitter! May the thread start! 💡

Did You Know: To provide vital #oil across the English Channel after the #DDay landings, within months secret #pipelines were unwound from massive spools to reach French ports.
Following the #DDay invasion– June 6, 1944 – Allied forces would need vast quantities of #petroleum to continue the advance into #Europe. Allied leaders also knew that petroleum tankers trying to reach French ports would be vulnerable to #Luftwaffe attacks...
A top-secret “Operation #PLUTO” – Pipe Line Under The Ocean – became the Allied strategy. It would fuel victory with #oil production from the #USA petroleum industry. The secret pipeline mission used a popular #WaltDisney character for its logo. #OOTT

Today was a difficult day to witness. RCMP enforced an injunction to force them to give access to the Coastal GasLink pipeline that would deliver natural gas to the $40 bill, under construction expansion terminal in Kitimat. #wetsuweten #aboriginaltitle #pipeline
The problem is, the office of the Wet’suwet’en (hereditary chiefs) have jurisdiction to the land in question, and don’t want the project. They’ve made it explicit they want to protect the last unspoiled corners of their territory.
The Wet’suwet’en have never given up rights or title to their land and have never entered treaty with the government. Despite that, police forced Wet’suwet’en people and their supporters to leave their land and at least 11 people were arrested.

.@FERC has a lot to be proud of in the 11 months since a quorum was re-established in August 2017.
Among the most significant achievements is the approval of a number of major #natgas #pipeline projects & BILLIONS of cf/d of new capacity. Many of those projects had been waiting for an exceptionally long time.
But there are some areas where we can & should do better — specifically, our review of #LNG export terminal applications. We need more resources!

1/ I’m in an intensive 50 hour wilderness first aid course this week. When I got to class today and told some of my classmates about the federal government’s purchase of the #KinderMorgan #pipeline, most of them asked “wait, so they bought it so they can block it?”
#StopKM
2/ It seemed intuitive to all of them that given the government knows and promotes the fact that we need to be emitting less pollution, it would be in its interest to buy a project designed to do the opposite, and then cancel it.
When I explained that no, the government has...
3/ ...bought a project deemed too risky and uncertain for #KinderMorgan’s investors in order to guarantee it is forced through against the wishes of Nations that have never given consent and through communities that have not given permission, I could see their faces drop in...
