U.S. Department of Energy Awards $25 Million to Improve Natural Gas Operations

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has selected 16 projects to receive nearly $25 million in federal funding for cost-shared projects to advance natural gas infrastructure technology development.

DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy will provide federal funding for these projects.

These projects aim to develop tools, methods, and technologies to cost-effectively enhance the safety and efficiency of the Nation’s natural gas production, gathering, storage, and transmission infrastructure.

“This Administration is committed to providing cost-effective, responsible technologies to advance natural gas operations across the United States,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette. “With the U.S. positioned as the world’s top producer of natural gas, DOE is proud to be a global leader in gas technology R&D.”

Project selections fall under three areas of interest (AOIs) as follows:

AOI 1: Advanced Technologies to Mitigate Emissions from and Increase the Efficiency of Natural Gas Transportation Infrastructure

AOI 2: Process-Intensified Technologies for the Upcycling of Flare Gas into Transportable, Value-Added Products

AOI 3: Advanced Methane Detection and Measurement Technology Validation
