WASHINGTON, U.S. – According to a new report by liberal think tank Center for American Progress, titled “How Exxon Won the 2016 Election,” the company stands to gain nearly $1 trillion from the Trump administration’s energy and environment policies.

The report comes just a day ahead of Donald Trump’s secretary of state nominee Rex Tillerson’s grilling during a Senate confirmation hearing on Wednesday on possible conflict of interest he faces as a result of the oil and gas giant’s extensive global operations.

RNS Releases
16 June 2016 – Woodburn Forest-1 well – completion of drilling PDF Print E-mail
InfraStrata plc (AIM:INFA), the independent petroleum exploration and gas storage company, announces that drilling has been completed at Woodburn Forest in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.

The well was drilled to a depth of 2,000 metres and encountered two conventional sandstone reservoir intervals, the Triassic Sherwood and the Lower Permian Sandstones. Wireline log analysis has calculated porosities of over 20% in the upper parts of both the Sherwood and the Lower Permian Sandstones but both targets were water wet.

The well will now be plugged and abandoned.

IM fundingIf the Islandmagee gas storage project is co-financed by the EU, does that mean that

Infrastrata et al. might have difficulty in continuing with the project? From Infrastrata’s website it looks like they are expecting more EU funding to complete the project. Anyone know? Or any idea where we can find this info out?

SCIENTIFIC investigations into Larne’s potential for energy storage is being taken a step further by Gaelectric Energy Storage (GES).

Unlike InfraStrata and North East Storage – which hope to excavate underground salt caverns to build up reserves of natural gas – Gaelectric is undertaking exploratory drilling ahead of a proposal to cache compressed air generated by wind turbines at off-peak periods and use it to boost the grid when required.

If all goes to plan, GES would build a facility to convert the compressed air into electricity by heating it using natural gas. The project would also entail a marine pipeline.
