Judge Orders Gov’t Review of Keystone Pipeline Documents

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Federal officials must go back and review documents related to the disputed Keystone XL oil pipeline, under a Wednesday court ruling that came after environmentalists accused President Donald Trump’s administration of withholding details on the project’s approval. U.S. District Judge Brian Morris said the government must provide any relevant documents by March 21 or explain why they should be withheld. The ruling came in a lawsuit pending in federal court in Montana from environmentalists seeking to stop the 1,179-mile (1,897-kilometer) pipeline. It would carry crude from Canada’s oil sands region to […]

Groups Want Details on Trump’s Approval of Keystone Pipeline

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Opponents of the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada are asking a judge to force the U.S. government to turn over emails and other documents related to President Donald Trump’s approval of the project. Environmentalists who sued to stop the 1,179-mile (1,800-kilometer) pipeline said the documents could bolster their case that Trump’s decision was arbitrary and should be overturned by the courts. But U.S. Justice Department attorneys argued in court filings that the disputed documents include internal deliberations that don’t have to be made public. They said the request amounts […]

YUKON, Okla. (AP) — A spokesman for the Environmental Protection Agency says cleanup is underway in suburban Oklahoma City where about 2,000 barrels of oil spilled from a ruptured pipeline.

A Whopper of a Tale That’s No Exaggeration

February 2018, Vol. 245, No. 2

When Columbia Gas of Kentucky began looking for better ways to dispose of its surplus expired plastic pipe, some of its workers came up with a plan that turned out to be a fish story worthy of retelling. As chance would have it the employees, who happened to enjoy recreational hunting and fishing, had become aware of a recurring problem the Wildlife Department had been experiencing with the structures it submerged to provide fish with feeding and spawning areas. The habitats were made of wood and tended to rot away after a few years. The...

Smart Pipelines and Smarter People

February 2018, Vol. 245, No. 2

The industrial world is becoming more digitally connected, making operations smarter and more productive. But with that connectivity comes increased vulnerability to security threats. Last year, three out of four oil and gas companies fell victim to at least one cyber-attack, as hacking efforts across the industry, and across the world, have become more frequent and sophisticated. This statistic illustrates why the conversation around cyber-attacks in the oil and gas space is no longer a question of “if” but “when.” Pipeline operators are at a critical turning point. The pressure of managing aging infrastructure is...

February 2018, Vol. 245, No. 2

Bill Cantrell’s father was an accountant by profession and a craftsman at heart, and some of Cantrell’s favorite memories are of helping him make furniture, cabinets and other improvements to their Tampa, Fla., home.  He credits this early enjoyment of building and “making things work” as a factor in his decision to study engineering, which led to his successful 40-year career in the energy industry.

Pipeline Politics Destroyed Canada’s Reputation for Investors

February 2018, Vol. 245, No. 2

It took a decade. It happened so gradually few noticed. Those who did were regarded as alarmist. Those opposed who participated, knowingly or otherwise, in an organized, well-financed, multi-year plan to destroy the future of the oil sands were pleased. No country in  the world has written more about pipelines that were never built. Northern Gateway. Keystone XL. Energy East. Federally approved Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain is bogged down in endless controversy, posturing and obstruction. Although construction in Canada is underway, Enbridge’s Line 3 replacement is stuck in the approval glue in Minnesota. KXL may...
