What makes for winners in the Texas wind power boom?

John Dudley lives in Comanche, Texas, and wears a couple of hats: He’s a cattle rancher and a wind farmer. We met on his 20,000 acres in the Texas hill country. His land holds more than half of the 87 turbines that make up the vast Logan’s Gap Wind Farm. His brown Herefords roam among the giant stalks, as they spin up to 40 stories overhead.
The Netherlands is to expected receive a cargo from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export terminal in Louisiana, the first ever US LNG cargo produced from shale gas to reach the country.
The 140,000-cbm Arctic Discoverer is scheduled to arrive at the Dutch Gate terminal in the port of Rotterdam around June 7, according to shipping data.
The vessel loaded a cargo at Sabine Pass and left the liquefaction facility on Sunday, the data shows.
LNG World News contacted Gate to comment on the shipment. We will update the article once we receive a response.
Many predicted a “flood” of U.S. LNG to Europe but only a small number of these cargoes landed in Europe, better said in the southern part of the continent.
Only Italy, Malta, Spain, Portugal and Turkey received Sabine Pass cargoes since February last year when the plant started shipping the fuel.
The bulk of these cargoes went to Latin America, Africa and Asia.
However, currently there are only three liquefaction trains in operation at the Sabine Pass facility and in the lower 48 states.
The U.S. is expected to become the world’s third-largest LNG supplier by 2020 with an export capacity of 60 million mt coming from five terminals located along the Gulf Coast.
New Frontiers Environmental Constitutionalism-PPT only
The paper we have been using as an overview of our Human Rights Tribunal on Fracking and Climate Change is finally now published (as a book chapter) and available on the United Nations Environment website.
“An International Tribunal on the Human Rights Impacts of Fracking: Structure, Grounding and Purposes” is attached below and now available to pass along to folks you think may be interested in learning more. (It’s only fourteen pages long, is pretty clear and has big print.)
Falcon hopeful Australian fracking ban will be lifted
Irish gas explorer remains confident as Northern Territories inquiry steps up
The Dublin-headquartered company, headed up by exploration veteran Philip O’Quigley, owns a 30pc share of the huge Beetaloo Basin shale gas field. The company has predicted that Beetaloo could ultimately compare in size to the world’s biggest unconventional gas fields, where fracking is used for extraction. Studies have suggested a technically recoverable resource of 85 trillion cubic feet – about 100 times the amount of gas in Ireland’s Corrib gas field.
Solar Photovoltaic panels and Power Diverter: electricity and hot water all in one!
Still no feed in tarif for solar energy (electricity) – no grants on Solar Photovoltaic panels The public is investing in clean energy. The Government should encourage this and divest from fossil fuels or imported LNG (fracked gas from the US)
No tor Fracking – Yes to Solar.
Why the State should follow Trinity’s lead on fossil fuel investment
As Trinity divests itself from fossil fuels, they are leading the way for the rest of the country

Last week, Trinity College Dublin announced that it had decided to sell off all of its investments in companies whose primary business is the extraction of fossil fuels.
This is no small amount of money. Trinity’s endowment fund dates back 200 years, and currently has €6 million tied up with oil companies.
A Fine Gael anti-fracking Bill is the first Private Members’ Bill to be passed by the current Dáil.
Deputy Tony McLoughlin, who represents Sligo-Leitrim, said his Bill will protect hundreds of thousands of people from the effects of hydraulic fracking.
Speaking following its passing, Deputy McLoughlin said: “This Bill will ensure that the environment and communities in the West and North West of Ireland are protected from the effects of hydraulic fracking, so this is a special moment for me and the people I was elected to represent.
