@nicholaslepan Three massive battery storage plants—built by Tesla, AES Corp., and Altagas Ltd.—are all officially going live in southern California at about the same time. Any one of these projects would have been the largest battery storage facility ever built. Combined, they amount to 15 percent of the battery storage installed planet-wide last year. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-01-30/tesla-s-battery-revolution-just-reached-critical-mass? $TSLA $ALA #energy

@nicholaslepan Oil prices fell on Thursday after official data showed U.S. crude and gasoline stockpiles rose sharply, although signs that OPEC and other producers are holding the line on output cuts are helping support prices. Brent crude futures fell 24 cents, or 0.4 percent, to $56.56 a barrel as of 0146 GMT (08:46 p.m. ET) after settling up $1.22 in the previous session. #oil #energy http://www.reuters.com/article/us-global-oil-idUSKBN15H01Y?il=0

@nicholaslepan U.S. Republicans today repealed a securities disclosure rule aimed at curbing corruption at energy and mining companies and voted to ax emissions limits on drilling operations, part of a push to remove Obama-era regulations on extractive industries.

@nicholaslepan According to the University of Calgary's School of Public Policy, there should be time limits on how long oil and gas wells in Alberta can be kept on stand by because it is viewed as a way to avoid reclamation costs. Often companies would rather temporarily suspend operations until they become profitable again instead of proceeding with expensive reclamation. Research has found that even if oil prices were to double, only about 12 per cent of oil wells would be reactivated. And if a technology breakthrough were to increase reserves five-fold, only about 10 per cent of oil wells and 6 per cent of gas wells would likely be restarted. This is just research, http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/industry-news/energy-and-resources/time-limits-needed-for-inactive-alberta-oil-sands-sites-report-says/article33958030/? #Alberta #oilandgas #oil #energy

@nicholaslepan When oil topped $100 a barrel three years ago, the tiny village of Norman Wells in Canada’s high arctic was gearing up to be the “Dubai of the Mackenzie River,” with oil revenue bringing prosperity to all. Now, with oil at half that price and one of Canada’s oldest wells set to close, the future is less certain for the 750 residents in the Northwest Territories town. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-02-09/arctic-oil-town-fears-future-as-imperial-s-1920-era-wells-shut? #energy #Canada #boombust

@nicholaslepan Oilsands companies shifting their investments to offshore wells on Canada's East Coast are taking on more exploration risk but gain the ability to ship their product anywhere in the world - at the best prices and without waiting for pipelines, analysts say. Earlier this week, Norway's Statoil announced its Canadian branch will drill two offshore exploratory wells this summer in the Flemish Pass Basin near the Bay du Nord discover. Statoil's news came just over a week after the close of a deal worth up to $832 million to sell all of its northern Alberta oilsands assets to Calgary-based Athabasca Oil $ATH. #energy #canada http://www.ctvnews.ca/business/statoil-s-shift-away-from-oilsands-improves-market-access-analysts-say-1.3279250

@nicholaslepan About 270 oil and gas rigs are drilling in Canada this week, which represents 42 per cent of the industry-wide fleet, according to the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors. It’s a considerable improvement from a year ago, when just 29 per cent of the Canadian fleet, or 209 rigs, were drilling, but 2016 was the worst year on record for the industry, the association said. http://calgaryherald.com/business/energy/calgary-based-precision-drilling-raising-prices-after-being-gouged-in-rout #energy #oil

@nicholaslepan Six years after Ontario abruptly imposed a moratorium on offshore wind projects, citing the need for more research, the government is signalling it will likely continue for several more years, even with all of its studies in hand. Both Windstream Energy and Trillium Power Wind had wind turbine projects planned for Lake Ontario in the eastern part of the province when the government brought down the moratorium -- in Trillium's case, just minutes before its financing was set to close. http://kitchener.ctvnews.ca/ban-on-offshore-wind-energy-programs-likely-to-continue-for-years-1.3282899 #energy

@nicholaslepan Egypt this year has seen a slate of reforms that saw the country open up its mining concessions and floating its currency, next up appears to be attracting oil explorers and investment in light of the recent discovery of ENI's giant Zohr gas discovery. BP, which has been present in Egypt for half a century, last year bought a 10 percent stake in Zohr from ENI. It has also been actively snapping up license blocks in Egypt's recent exploration rounds. #Egypt #oil #energy http://www.reuters.com/article/us-edison-egypt-gas-idUSKBN15T2F3

@Xriva #Energy #Solar FYI - Saw nice piece by Motley Fool, which said aging American infrastructure includes aging hydro electric dams - most of which exceed their estimated 50 year life spans. MF saw that as a positive for solar/battery farms. As their cost is so much lower these days, and their build time is so much shorter than rebuilding a hydro-electric dam. I agree and think that only adds to the game-changing edge that battery storage as given #Solar.

@nicholaslepan Battery costs have declined 40 percent since 2014 and regulators are mandating storage technology be added to the grid. That’s encouraging utilities to offer longer contracts and developers are expected build $2.5 billion in systems globally this year. These trends are changing the risk profile, giving lenders confidence in batteries in much the same way that power-purchase agreements opened banks’ doors years ago for wind and solar power. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-02-21/big-batteries-coming-of-age-prompt-bankers-to-place-their-bets? #energy
