    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry commented on the Biden administration granting new drilling leases by stating that he’s fine with additional fossil fuel production if it’s “geared to be able to deal with the need for economic stability in order to be able to make the transitions that we need,” and he views the move “as a temporary measure to try to relieve the price pressure, which is essential to keeping the population committed to moving in these directions,” and that President Biden “knows that many of these leases that have been granted are simply not going to be drilled in.” Kerry stated, “Is there some additional pumping? Yes, there is. Because demand is up and because, with the situation in Ukraine, the United States is going to do everything it can to help our friends who have made sacrifices by refusing to accept Russian gas and oil and who are now moving even more rapidly to deploy renewables for their own power sectors in their country and transportation in their...

    European Union leaders want the bloc to use the reprieve of a warm summer to build up natural gas stores in preparation for winter and any additional volatility to energy markets triggered by the Russia-Ukraine war. The European Commission made public its proposals on Wednesday, a day before the European Council convenes its meeting in Brussels, where President Joe Biden and heads of state will talk over how to respond to the Russian invasion. The White House has already previewed a "joint action on enhancing European energy security" between the United States and Europe, which Biden will announce Thursday, and all parties have committed in principle to displacing Russian gas from Europe's economies. The commission's proposal would obligate EU states to reach a minimum of 80% of gas storage capacity by Nov. 1 of this year, and the level would rise to 90% in coming years. The commission would have sought 90% storage this year but recognizes that "the specific situation of the current year" makes things difficult and is allowing flexibility "to ensure smooth phasing-in...
    The Department of Energy announced Wednesday that it is authorizing liquefied natural gas facilities on the Gulf Coast to ship additional product across the globe in the face of constant pressure from Republicans to enable more fossil fuel production. The department's orders raised output thresholds on Texas-based Cheniere Energy Inc.'s Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi facilities, allowing the company to ship 0.72 billion cubic feet of LNG per day more than previously authorized. ABBOTT SAYS BIDEN BLOCKING TEXAS FROM PROVIDING NATURAL GAS TO FIX EUROPE ENERGY CRISIS The order also enables all LNG exporters to ship gas to any country in the world, including those with which the United States does not have a free trade agreement. "U.S. LNG remains an important component to global energy security, and DOE remains committed to finding ways to help our allies and trading partners with the energy supplies they need while continuing to work to mitigate the impact of climate change," the department said in its announcement. The decision coincides with a veritable energy crisis in Europe, largely...
    The U.S. Department of Energy has given a liquefied natural gas exporter operating in Louisiana and Texas permission for additional sales to every country entirely in Europe as they seek to move away from Russian oil and gas because of that country’s war on Ukraine. As Europe works to phase out its reliance on Russian energy, “the world needs every molecule it can get” from other sources, said Dustin Meyer, the American Petroleum Institute’s vice president for natural gas markets. Cheniere Energy Inc. said its Sabine Pass facility in Louisiana and its Corpus Christi plant in Texas have been improved and are making more gas than covered by previous export permits. Wednesday’s orders “will allow for additional operational flexibility for us and our customers during this pivotal time and for decades to come,” it said in a statement released by a public relations firm. U.S. companies are already exporting at or near their maximum capacity and Wednesday’s orders mean “every operating U.S. LNG export project has approval from DOE to export its full capacity to any country where...

    Q: What do you think about current gas prices vs. widespread high-speed driving? Remember when we used to emphasize that high-speed driving was more expensive than following speed limits? Is there a way to bring that again to the general public? This awareness could help in accident prevention, as well as in saving money. Sharon Tyler, Gilroy A: Yes. Consider this. Drivers who speed and drive aggressively spend 25-35 cents more a gallon for their bad habits. Studies repeatedly show that driving habits are the single biggest factor that affects vehicle fuel consumption. Adopting improved driving behaviors can contribute to significant savings at the pump. Here are some simple ways to improve your mileage: Keep tires properly inflated. Every pound per-square-inch that a tire is under-inflated results in a six-percent loss in fuel efficiency. Slow down. On the highway, aerodynamic drag causes fuel economy to drop off significantly as speeds increase above 50 mph. When approaching a red light or stop sign, take your foot off the gas early and coast down to a slower speed until it is...
    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) — Florida Power & Light on Tuesday sought approval to collect an additional $810 million from customers in 2022 as high natural-gas prices continue to drive up costs for electric utilities. The request, filed at the state Public Service Commission, would push up FPL customer bills that were already slated to increase next year. Costs for natural gas and other power-plant fuel are generally passed through to customers. READ MORE: Search For Missing Man In Waters Near Julia Tuttle CausewayFPL, Duke Energy Florida and Tampa Electric Co. have all warned in recent weeks that they might have to revamp fuel costs for customers because of higher-than-expected natural gas prices. In Tuesday’s filing, FPL, which recently received approval for base-rate increases, said it has tried to limit fuel costs by taking steps such as expanding the use of solar energy and upgrading power plants to make them operate more efficiently. “FPL plans to continue to improve these efforts in the coming years by, among other things, installing significantly more solar and more efficient combined cycle generation in the coming...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota's largest gas utilities are warning about sky high heating bills because of the historic cold wave in the South and the state's stretch of subzero weather. At a special meeting by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission Tuesday, members were told February heating bills could be $400 more. The addition charge isn't expected to show up on customers' bills until September and the cost would normally be spread over a 12-month period. “This could be a very harmful pricing event for many people,” Ian Dobson, a representative for the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office, told the PUC. It’s never a good time for a big price hike, he said, but during a pandemic “is one of the worst times it could happen.” Past due bills continue to mount as both CenterPoint Energy and Xcel Energy because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Star Tribune reported. The state’s largest gas provider, CenterPoint, which has more than 870,000 customers, estimates that customers will face about $300 to $400 in additional gas charges. Xcel Energy, Minnesota’s second-largest gas provider with about 475,000...

    CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — Repairs to a leaking gas well just off the Texas coast have been halted because of Tropical Storm Beta, according to the city of Corpus Christi. “Due to deteriorating weather conditions, offshore repairs are temporarily on hold on the Magellan E&P owned natural gas platform located near Bob Hall Pier on North Padre Island,” according to a news release from the city late Friday. “The derrick barge, a crane equipped boat used for repair, the support boat, and all personnel have departed the rig.” The unmanned well owned by Houston-based Magellan E&P Holdings Inc. began spewing a plume of natural gas, condensate and water on Sept. 1. There were no injuries and the city said air monitors have detected not contamination. The city said onshore work on the repairs will continue and offshore work will resume when National Weather Service forecasts indicates winds at the platform are 15 mph (24 kph) or less and waves are lower than six feet. Repairs to the well were delayed a week ago when the city said additional equipment...
