Oil price collapse likely to undercut EOR-based carbon capture projects, lobbyist says

first_imgOil price collapse likely to undercut EOR-based carbon capture projects, lobbyist says FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):Low oil prices during the coronavirus pandemic could prompt some interest in enhanced oil recovery carbon capture sequestration projects to wane and make pure geological storage of carbon dioxide a more attractive option, Fred Eames, an energy lobbyist and partner at Hunton Andrews Kurth, said during a May 6 webinar hosted by the United States Energy Association.Enhanced oil recovery projects are a type of carbon capture, utilization and storage, or CCUS, that involves injecting carbon dioxide into the ground at oil fields to extract more oil from those locations.But given the glut of oil available during the coronavirus crisis and the fact that enhanced oil recovery costs more than other extractive options, Eames questioned whether interest in such initiatives will lessen. Moreover, oil prices in April imploded due to oversupply caused by coronavirus-related business closures and stay-at-home restrictions.“In this current environment that we’re in, we may have people looking at other options rather than enhanced oil recovery,” Eames said. “If you’ve got the option for enhanced oil recovery or pure geological storage, pure geological storage right now might be looked at as a little more attractive than it was a couple of months ago.”Nigel Jenvey, global head of carbon management at oil and gas consultancy Gaffney Cline & Associates, noted that the majority of CCUS projects are by U.S. oil and gas companies such as Occidental Petroleum Corp., Exxon Mobil Corp. and Chevron Corp. Of the 10 CCUS projects companies are investing in within the U.S., four of those need significant policy support to make them economically viable, according to a slide Jenvey presented at the webinar.The panelists noted that the U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration recently disclosed that nearly $894 million worth of carbon capture and sequestration tax credits were claimed over the last decade by entities that failed to comply with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requirements. As for Congress’s 2018 extension of Section 45Q federal tax credit for CCUS projects, companies are still itching for the IRS to issue the rest of the related guidance, the panelists said.[Esther Whieldon]More ($): Low oil prices may make enhanced oil recovery less attractive, lobbyist suggestslast_img read more

Interest in travel is growing. In case of impossibility to travel, travel agencies return the money to the passengers

first_imgThe new business and service conditions in the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic aim to ensure a refund in the event of travel cancellation due to the inability to arrive at the desired destination due to restrictive measures. Photo: UHPA Travel agencies, despite the new conditions in which we live and the rules that surround us, are facing increasing interest from clients for autumn and winter travel, say the Association of Croatian Travel Agencies (UHPA). “According to the information of our members, the interest in travel, although with increased caution, still exists, which makes us very happy. It is mostly about individual trips and traditional ski arrangements. In order to respond to customer requirements, our members have promptly adjusted the conditions and way of doing business and we believe that their approach to the new circumstances will motivate travelers in planning their trips.”, Said UHPA President Tomislav Fain.center_img All key information passengers can find out from employees of travel agencies and UHPA invites them to contact them with confidence. “In agency business, it has always been most important to spot new trends in a timely manner and adapt to them as soon as possible. Accordingly, the agency business was continuously changing and adapting to market and passenger requirements. In the same way, we approached the preparations for the tourist season 2021, for which the new rules definitely apply, and it is certainly encouraging that both our clients and partners have confidence in us. The only way to stay on that path is to provide passengers with all the information and safety, both on the trip itself and in case the trip does not materialize. UHPA, in cooperation with the relevant ministry as well as other professional associations, will continue to invest great efforts in the normalization of business as well as restoring the trust of passengers, and we are extremely glad that our passengers recognize this and show growing interest in travel.”, Concludes Fain.last_img read more

Froome claims fourth Tour de France title

first_imgBy Julien PretotPARIS (Reuters) – Chris Froome put on a near-perfect performance to claim his fourth Tour de France and move within one title of cycling’s greatest on Sunday as Team Sky tightened their grip on the classic race.The Briton suffered a few wobbles throughout the 3,540-km race but was always in control over the three weeks thanks to his high-calibre team mates who sheltered him when it mattered in the mountains, leaving the lanky rider to make the difference in the time trials that book-ended the 104th edition.Sky, who have the biggest budget of the peloton, have now snatched five of the last six titles and came within a whisker of placing two riders on the podium as Spain’s Mikel Landa missed out on the top three by one second.Froome is now one title behind all-time greats Belgian Eddy Merckx, Spain’s Miguel Indurain and French duo Jacques Anquetil and Bernard Hinault.He is the first to win three consecutive titles since Indurain, who prevailed from 1991-95.The disgraced Lance Armstrong’s seven titles since then have been erased from the record book.“I’m speechless, it’s amazing,” Froome said after getting off his bike and hugging his wife Michelle and son Kellan.“The Champs Elysees never disappoints, there is something magical when you have spent three weeks thinking about this moment, it’s just so rewarding every time.“Each win has been so unique, such a different battle and this will be remembered as the closest and most hard-fought.”Colombian Rigoberto Uran finished second overall, 54 seconds behind, and France’s Romain Bardet, runner-up last year, was third, 2:20 off the pace after both riders lost time to Froome in Saturday’s final time trial.Sky’s team principal Dave Brailsford said there was no reason Froome could not add to his tally and become the most successful rider in the race’s history.“I think Chris can go on, there is no reason to think that he can’t,” he said. “Physically he has got what it takes and I don’t think that’s going to diminish in the next year or so.”Sunday’s largely processional stage from Montgeron — where the first Tour started in 1903 — to the Champs Elysees in Paris was won by Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen in a bunch sprint.The 103-km ride was the occasion for Froome to sip rose Champagne with his team mates as the real racing began only when the peloton, who went through the Grand Palais, reached the Champs Elysees and the sprinters wound it up.Froome’s victory was the first one achieved with a gap of less than a minute and while there was no repeat of last year when he had to run up Mont Ventoux without a bike, he did have mechanical scares that his rivals failed to exploit.Slowed DownIn the ninth stage, they slowed down for him after Fabio Aru attacked near the top of the final climb with Froome waiting for assistance. A week later his main rivals did not go for the throat when the Briton broke a spoke in his rear wheel and found himself trailing by 45 seconds.He also lacked his usual dominance in the climbs and was beaten in a brutal uphill finish in Peyragudes as the 26-year-old Bardet won the stage to fuel hopes of a first home champion since 1985.Froome always had the safety net of Saturday’s 22.2-km sprint around the streets of Marseille where Bardet cracked and almost lost his podium place.France had a great Tour with five stage wins, including a double by Warren Barguil, who won the polka dot jersey for the mountains classification, reviving memories of Richard Virenque.Australian Michael Matthews’s versatility earned him the green jersey for the points classification, helped by the fact that world champion Peter Sagan was kicked out of the race for causing a crash that ended Mark Cavendish’s race.Germany’s Marcel Kittel won five stages but crashed a few days before the finish.Britain’s Simon Yates won the white jersey for the best under-25 rider after finishing seventh overall, one year after his twin brother Adam achieved the same feat.last_img read more
