DEME and partners developing HYPORT DUQM, a large-scale green hydrogen project in Oman

Green Car Congress

DEME Concessions and Omani partners are partnering to develop a world-leading, green hydrogen plant in Duqm, Oman. The facility will significantly contribute to the decarbonization of the regional chemical industry in Oman, as well as providing green hydrogen and/or derivatives (such as green methanol or ammonia) to international customers in Europe, for example in the Port of Antwerp.

GECF: more than a quarter of 2050 natural gas supply untapped

Green Car Congress

Yet-to-find (YTF) resources will contribute to around 30% of the total production of natural gas worldwide by 2050, according to Yury Sentyurin, the Secretary General of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF). According to Sentyurin, around 80% of the natural gas production by mid-century will stem from new projects, highlighting the importance of continued investment in upstream. Senturin made his remarks during the 25 th Oil & Gas of Turkmenistan Conference.

EIA ups total shale oil resource estimate by 13% to 419B barrels, shale gas by 4% to 7576 Tcf

Green Car Congress

The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) continues to expand its assessment of technically recoverable shale oil and shale natural gas resources around the world. The addition of four countries—Chad, Kazakhstan, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE)—to a previous assessment covering 42 countries has resulted in a 13% increase in the global assessed total resource estimate for shale oil and a 4% increase for shale gas.

Global Gas Prices | Hybrid Sales

Hybrid SUV Blog

Expert predictions about where oil and gas prices are headed vary widely. Some expect both to remain steady due to global economic conditions while others point to the return of $3/gallon gas (in the states) fueled mainly by an increase in foreign demand. During these huge fluctuations, sales of hybrid cars have closely mirrored what we pay to fill our gas tanks. Low gas prices encourage less fuel efficient vehicles.

Singapore Company Trialing Natural Gas Econic Waste Collection Vehicle

Green Car Congress

Singapore’s largest waste management company, Sembcorp, is starting a one-year field trial to assess market acceptance, cost-effectiveness and customer satisfaction of the Mercedes-Benz Econic waste collection truck with Natural Gas Technology. This marks the entry of the natural gas truck into the Asia market. The M 906 LAG natural gas engine has a displacement of 6.9 The Econic, introduced in 1998, has been available with natural gas drive since 2002.

INPEX and Total launch the $34B Ichthys offshore Australia LNG Project; entire 8.5 Mt/y LNG output already sold for 15 years

Green Car Congress

Japan-based INPEX Corporation and its joint venture partner Total have made the final investment decision (FID) for the Ichthys liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Australia, representing an investment of US$34 billion dollars. The Ichthys FID announced today by INPEX and Total signals the start of construction of one of the world’s largest LNG facilities based on an estimated 40 years of gas and condensate reserves from the Browse Basin offshore Western Australia.

Shell Technology Ventures to invest several $100 millions in emerging tech companies over next 6-8 years

Green Car Congress

The company will look at areas including gas production and conversion; geophysical imaging; chemical manufacturing and conversion; novel materials; enhanced oil recovery; and water treatment. Various aspects of information technology (“Big Data”); oil and gas wells drilling and completion; sub-surface sensing; production in challenging environments; operational efficiency; and future energy technologies will also be sought.

MHTL to partner with G2X, negotiate methanol offtake agreement from G2X methanol-to-gasoline plant

Green Car Congress

The site is located adjacent to multiple large natural gas pipelines and industrial electricity connectivity, and affords the option to ship methanol via barge or oceangoing vessel. The company has built five world-scale plants in Trinidad and Oman similar in design to the Big Lake Fuels plant. G2X Energy, Inc.

New palladium oxalate hydrodeoxygenation catalyst for production of drop-in paraffinic biofuels

Green Car Congress

Researchers in Malaysia and Oman have developed a novel palladium oxalate catalyst supported on zeolite A (PdOx/ Zeol) with increased acidity for the hydrodeoxygenation and isomerization of bio-feedstocks into paraffinic (drop-in) biofuels. The activity of the PdOx/Zeol tested on the HDO of SA showed that temperature, pressure, gas flow rate, and PdOx/Zeol loading have significant effects on the HDO process.

Study links air pollution and cyclone intensity in Arabian Sea; suggested solutions include diesel filters and two-stroke engines running on LPG fuel

Green Car Congress

The Nature paper suggests that weakening winds have enabled the formation of stronger cyclones in recent years—including storms in 2007 and 2010 that were the first recorded storms to enter the Gulf of Oman. Because of the large-scale dimming by ABCs, they have a mitigating effect on the warming of the ocean in the region that’s also associated with greenhouse gas-driven climate changes. Scientists are working to better understand atmospheric brown clouds and their effects.

France’s IFPEN studying industrial potential of onshore sources of natural hydrogen

Green Car Congress

IFP Energies nouvelles (IFPEN) has become one of the first global research centers actively to investigate onshore natural hydrogen emissions after the discovery of offshore sources of the gas in the 1970s. The H 2 used in industry is mainly produced by converting natural gas (CH 4 ), which has the downside of emitting CO 2.
