A federal agency has stopped a major East Coast natural gas pipeline in its tracks—just a week after doing so to a similar project.
The timeline for the controversial Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a natural gas project that would run 600 miles from West Virginia to North Carolina, has been delayed by at least a few months because main developer Dominion Energy failed to cut down the trees along its planned route by a March deadline.
The first liquefied natural gas tanker to cross through the Russian Arctic this time of year without the help of a separate icebreaker finished its journey Friday.
For the first time ever, a running pipeline approved by the Federal Regulatory Energy Commission (FERC) might get shut down.
In North Carolina, the controversial Atlantic Coast Pipeline is one step closer to reality, after the state Department of Environmental Quality issued the 600-mile long natural gas pipeline project a necessary water quality permit on Friday.
Before a pipeline can spill any oil or gas, it must be built. During that process, however, a different type of spill can happen—one that spews not fossil fuels but drilling liquid instead.
The Trump administration really doesn’t want to impose rules curtailing the venting of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, during oil and gas operations. On Friday, the Bureau of Land Management will officially make its biggest gambit yet to keep the gas pouring into the atmosphere.
More than a million black people face an increased risk of cancer and asthma thanks to air pollution resulting from oil refineries or natural gas facilities in their backyards, a troubling new report has found.
Last week, the nation of Portugal achieved something remarkable. For 107 hours—about four days—the country ran on nothing but wind, solar and hydro power.
Last week a report from a coalition of energy providers scared the hell out of Los Angeles, claiming the region would face blackouts due to its catastrophic four-month-long natural gas leak. But a loud and growing group of Southern California energy experts are calling bullshit, saying this is just a way to keep LA…
Though the catastrophic natural gas leak outside of Los Angeles has been contained, the repercussions are still far from over, according to a new report. For weeks leaders of the region’s utility companies have been warning customers about potential disruptions to their energy service. Today, they’re telling Los…
A week after the ruptured natural gas well near Porter Ranch, California was officially sealed, we have the full damage report. And it reveals that this was easily one of the largest environmental disasters in US history.
The LA gas leak may be a climate disaster, but a similar problem is playing out all over the world. Now, thanks to infrared technology, we’re starting to see just how much methane the oil and gas industry is hemorrhaging—mostly, out of laziness.
One of the worst environmental disasters of the decade is currently underway in a quiet community 25 miles northwest of Los Angeles. Putrid, methane-rich natural gas has been spewing into the air at an estimated rate of nearly 1,300 metric tons per day for over two months. Experts are calling it the climate version of…
For the first time ever, coal has been unseated as America’s largest source of fuel to generate electricity. As of April 2015, natural gas is now number 1.
The gas that gets pumped into your house has no smell. This means the first sign you get that you're inhaling gas is a lack of oxygen to the brain. To correct that problem, companies use a chemical characteristic of badly made wine.
A few months ago, The New York Times sent a photographer to South Korea to photograph the world's largest floating object. It took him hundreds of shots to capture the behemoth. Now, its makers are giving us a closer look at building of the ship.
