What is the Alaska LNG project We break it down Part 1

first_imgThis illustration shows what a proposed liquefaction plant at Nikiski could look like. (Source: Alaska LNG)Lawmakers around the state are packing their bags and preparing to head to Juneau for their third special session of the year. This session will focus on one thing: the Alaska LNG project. That’s the giant pipeline the state hopes to build, along with ExxonMobil, BP, ConocoPhillips — and maybe TransCanada — to bring natural gas from the North Slope.Download AudioBut if you’re like a lot of Alaskans, you might be a little fuzzy on the details.I wanted to find out what Alaskans know about this project, so I parked myself outside the Fred Meyer on Northern Lights Boulevard in Anchorage.Waldholz: If I say liquified natural gas, do you know what that is? Woman: No? Liquified natural gas, no.Man: It’s something they’ve been talking about for thirty years! It’s just one of those pipe dreams. Waldholz: Literally. Man: Yeah, literally. [Laughs]Waldholz: Do you know what LNG is, or why it’s liquified?Second man: I’m thinking it’s liquified for easier transport…it’s easier to transport a quantity of liquid versus the same quantity of gas. Waldholz: That is exactly it!That is exactly it. Here’s the short version: the Alaska LNG project will bring natural gas from the North Slope down to Nikiski, on the Kenai Peninsula, for export to buyers in Asia. In order to load the gas onto the ships that will carry it across the Pacific, it has to be liquefied.And it’s a huge project. The estimated price tag is $45 to $65 billion dollars.Lydia Johnson works for ExxonMobil. She’s the technical manager for the Alaska LNG project.Johnson: This is way bigger than TAPS [the Trans Alaska Pipeline System]. This is one of the largest, most complex projects in the world today.Waldholz: In the world? Johnson: In the world. Right here in Alaska.This illustration shows what a proposed gas treatment plant on the North Slope could look like. (Courtesy of Alaska LNG)The key point — if you remember just one thing — is that the Alaska LNG project is not just a pipeline. It actually has three big pieces. First, there’s a gas treatment plant on the North Slope, to prepare the gas for the pipeline. Then there’s the pipeline itself, running some 800 miles down to Cook Inlet. And then there’s a giant liquefaction plant in Nikiski.Johnson says each one of the components is a megaproject in its own right.Johnson: You put them all together, that’s a gigaproject. That’s our term.That’s right. A gigaproject. And one that could bring in more than $2 billion a year in state revenue.So let’s walk through this gigaproject. Johnson: If I’m a natural gas molecule, natural gas is found below ground, so we’re looking at the fields of Pt. Thomson and Prudhoe Bay…The gas at Prudhoe Bay has been tempting pipeline builders for decades. For some forty years, the state has fielded different proposals, most recently to connect the North Slope to the lower 48. The shale gas revolution put an end to that  plan — suddenly, nobody needed more gas down south. That’s why this plan would ship the gas to Asia.But before it can go anywhere, it has to be treated. The project calls for a gas treatment plant on the North Slope, to strip out impurities like carbon dioxide.“This would be the largest gas treatment facility in the Arctic,” Johnson said. “Ever. Huge project.”From that huge project into the next one: from the gas treatment facility, the gas would go into a pipeline rivaling the Trans Alaska Pipeline in length. There are some key differences. The existing pipeline carries crude oil, which comes out of the ground warm. Johnson compared it to syrup.“Syrup going through a pipeline needs to be very hot,” she said.That, by the way, is why much of the Trans Alaska Pipeline is above-ground. You don’t want to build a hot pipeline in permafrost.“Now you think of natural gas,” Johnson said. “It’s very cold, it comes out of the ground naturally very cold.”So the gas pipeline will be buried.The plan calls for the line to run alongside the Trans Alaska Pipeline until about Livengood. From there, it would break off and head south to Cook Inlet.Along the way, the line would need eight compressor stations to provide pressure and move the gas along. There are also plans for five off-take points. The idea is to deliver natural gas to Alaska communities along the route, with the hope that it would lower local energy costs.The line would cross under Cook Inlet, perhaps near Tyonek, and end at a brand new liquefaction facility at Nikiski. That’s where the magic happens — and it’s expensive magic. Roughly half the cost of this $45 to $65 billion project is just the liquefaction plant.The point of liquefaction is to shrink the gas to a manageable size. When the gas is chilled and becomes a liquid, it becomes six hundred times smaller.“If you took natural gas without liquefying it, you would need huge ships,” Johnson said. “And it would be basically a floating bomb, which you don’t want.”But loaded with liquified natural gas, those ships then become, essentially, floating pipelines, carrying the gas to markets around the world.Here’s the catch, however: liquifying natural gas requires cooling it to -260 degrees Fahrenheit. There are only so many places on earth where that can be done.As it happens, one of those places is already in Nikiski — ConocoPhillips’ Kenai LNG plant.And that’s where we’ll go next time: in Part 2 when we get to use the word cryogenic in a non-sci fi context.Click here for Part 2 of the “What is Alaska LNG?” series.last_img read more

After BP leak report state calls for review of all North Slope

first_imgResponders from Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC), U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), the North Slope Borough, and BP Exploration Alaska (BPXA) has been established to respond to natural gas and crude oil discharge near Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. (Photo courtesy U.S. EPA)State regulators are calling for a review of thousands of oil wells on the North Slope by the end of this year.Listen nowThe Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission is ordering all wells on the North Slope that have a similar design to a BP well that failed this spring, to be shut in immediately and reported to the state.The emergency order comes after BP blamed an April oil spill and gas leak on a piece of a well casing that buckled under pressure from thawing permafrost.The company later shut in five other producing wells that had a similar design.But, Cathy Foerster, who sits on the commission, said the company kept the results of its investigation largely quiet.“When BP was in here last week we asked them if they had shared the information with all of their operators and they said they had only shared it with their co-owners,” Foerster said.Foerster said she was disappointed by the company’s decision.It isn’t clear how many wells on the North Slope have a similar design. But, Foerster said she was confident that engineers for each company could complete the review process before the end of the year. She said BP’s flawed Prudhoe Bay well was older and she doesn’t think newer fields on the North Slope will have similarly designed wells.“I don’t think many modern wells were drilled that way, but I don’t know,” Foerster said.  “We’re doing this just to make sure.”Foerster said operators will not have to shut in the flawed wells permanently – they can pay to have them fixed.Foerster said the permafrost around the wells is not thawing because of climate change; rather she blames it on the heat from the oil and gas and other fluids being pumped from thousands of feet underground to the frozen surface.last_img read more

HC declines to entertain plea for recognising relationship of

first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi High Court Monday declined to entertain a plea seeking to recognise the relationship of members of LGBT community by making law and regulations relating to marriage, adoption and divorce. A bench of Chief Justice D N Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar said drafting of a law is an exclusive power of the legislature and not the judiciary. “It appears that this court will be extremely slow to give direction to draft a legislation or regulation or policy,” the bench said and disposed of the petition. During the hearing, the bench also asked, “Can a writ court direct the legislature to draft a law? Is a writ court supposed to do this?” The petitioner also prayed that the Centre and the Delhi government be directed to constitute a Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) commission in Delhi for upliftment and welfare of members of the community. Also Read – National Herald case: Officer bearers of Congress were cheats, Subramanian Swamy tells court Advertise With Us The bench said the authorities were permitted to do so if they wished, and it finds no reason to pass a direction in this regard. The petition, filed by advocates Tajinder Singh and Anurag Chauhan, sought that the commission be constituted to eradicate the problems such as fear, shame, gender dysphoria, social pressure, depression and social stigma and also to create awareness among the general public. The plea also sought for bringing in appropriate changes to the Hindu Marriage Act and other personal laws to recognise the rights pertaining to marriage and adoption. Also Read – Dehydrated elephant being given treatment Advertise With Us The Centre, in a reply to the petition, has said that the ministry concerned is taking all necessary measures for upliftment of transgenders and to bring them in the mainstream. The petition said, “Not only society as a whole but State machinery also treat the LGBT community differently, especially police. They are a regular victim of rights violations. They are deprived of their basic human right and right to life which includes the right to enjoy life properly.” It said the first step is sex education in schools and at homes. A child must feel comfortable discussing problems or issues related to sexual matters and even their sexual choices with their parents or teachers, and it is important that they fully appreciate their wards’ situation and guide them accordingly, it added. “Law enforcement agencies such as police also need sensitisation so that they will be able to appreciate the genuine concerns of members of the LGBT community. Similarly, our media and film fraternity is required to be more considerate while depicting such people in their shows and films respectively,” the plea said.last_img read more

Is It Possible To Die Of Grief

first_imgChris Pizzello/APDebbie Reynolds and her daughter, Carrie Fisher, at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards in 2011 in Los Angeles. Reynolds’ death, just one day after her daughter’s, has led many to ask whether it’s really possible to die of a broken heart.The actress Debbie Reynolds’ death just one day after her daughter, Carrie Fisher, died has led some to speculate that grief from the loss might have been a contributing factor. There was similar speculation when actress Brittany Murphy’s husband, Simon Monjack, was found dead at just 39, several months after the sudden death of his wife.It’s a common theme in literature — 10 of Shakespeare’s characters die of strong emotion — but is it actually possible to die of a broken heart?The short answer is, maybe. A small study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2005 evaluated 19 patients who showed symptoms of cardiovascular dysfunction after sudden emotional stress, concluding: “Emotional stress can precipitate severe, reversible left ventricular dysfunction in patients without coronary disease.” The condition, known as Broken Heart Syndrome, has been well-documented since this small study and is now recognized by the American Medical Association as occasionally fatal. It seems to primarily affect older women.While this particular condition is quite rare, stress and strong emotions have long been known to elevate the risk of more common problems, like heart attack and stroke. Some reports have suggested Reynolds had stroke-like symptoms before she died.Dr. Ilan Wittstein was lead author of the NEJM study and is a cardiologist at Johns Hopkins University. “It looked clinically like a heart attack,” he says of the patients suffering Broken Heart Syndrome in his study. But, he adds, “Typically a heart attack is caused by a blockage in an artery, that develops a blood clot around it, and then blood flow to the heart is cut off. And what we saw in our patients was that they really didn’t have any blockages in their arteries.”The good news is that the effect seems to be remarkably short-lived and treatable in most people. While heart attacks cause permanent damage to the heart muscle, the effect of Broken Heart Syndrome seems to be completely reversible. “Typically within a couple of weeks the heart muscle is back to normal again,” Wittstein says. He adds that while the condition can be fatal, it usually isn’t.Wittstein thinks the physiological explanation involves the hormones your body produces when you’re under significant stress: adrenaline and noradrenaline. “We think these stress hormones, when they’re produced in large amounts, actually go to the heart and affect the very tiny blood vessels that surround the heart,” triggering a temporary decrease of blood flow to the heart.“As a result, the heart muscle is stunned,” Wittstein says. “It can’t function properly for a matter of days.”George Bonanno, a clinical psychologist who studies grief at Columbia University, says he is skeptical that grief had anything to do with Reynolds’ death. “It’s a little on the 19th century side to be saying she died of grief,” he says. In most cases, after a loss, “we get on with our lives pretty quickly. I had argued, and I think the data supports, that we’re kind of wired to do that.”Bonanno says sadness is adaptive: We have evolved to feel sad in the same way we evolved to feel cold.“You don’t need to feel cold,” he says. “Your body will regulate its temperature as best it can, without you even knowing you’re cold. But we evolved the feeling of cold later in evolution because it’s instrumental.” When you feel cold, you can often do something to help your body — by putting on a coat, going inside, or turning up the heat.In the same way, Bonanno says, there must be a good reason humans evolved to feel sadness. “Being sad is very adaptive when you’ve had a major loss, because you’re turning inward, because you’re reflecting, because you’re recalibrating,” he says. “And all those things are all very important to do.”His work has also examined facial expressions, and how people who look sad invite sympathy. One theory is that by feeling and looking sad, we let the people around us know that we need their help.But, like so many things, sadness might be “adaptive” only in moderation. Camille Wortman, a psychologist at Stony Brook University who studies grief and bereavement, is especially interested in cases where the loss of a loved one is very sudden or traumatic. She says there is a more extreme grief associated with the sudden loss of a child — even if that child is an adult — as was the case for Reynolds.“The death of a child is absolutely devastating for a parent no matter when it occurs,” Wortman says. “I don’t think those people really bounce back the way we might think. I see them struggling for years and years with just an enormous hole in their heart, and an enormous sense of emptiness.”People do improve over time though, she says, provided they get the help and support that they need.We may never know whether a sudden stun to the heart or any other manifestation of grief played a role in Reynolds’ death. But Wittstein says the symptoms of Broken Heart Syndrome are very similar to that of a heart attack — chest pain and shortness of breath — and anyone experiencing these symptoms should seek medical attention.As for the psychological and emotional aspects of grief, Bonanno and Wortman both say it’s important not to be judgmental, of your own grief or that of others. There are many healthy ways to grieve, and Bonanno says, grief comes and goes in phases. Everyone’s pace of healing is different.“We don’t stay in these states all day long, even though it may seem like we do,” he says. “We go in and out of these states.”In his research coding facial expressions, Bonanno has found that the majority of people are able to laugh and smile when remembering things about a deceased spouse, even very soon after their death. “[They] might be crying one second, and then you’d get somebody genuinely laughing and smiling,” Bonanno says. “You see people do this at funerals,” he adds. Loved ones gather, and “most people are actually capable of interacting with them in a really meaningful way.”Copyright 2016 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/. Sharelast_img read more

Sculpting Masterpieces An Interview With Israel Skelton

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on target Every geek wants that bit of merchandise from their favorite series to call their own. Whether for cosplay, personal or just to hang out at your desk (smiles at my own little Kylo Ren), Skelton Crew Studios creates pieces that give comic fans their own limited edition favorite item or character from your beloved comic book series.Skelton Crew Studios, headed by Israel Skelton with his wife Kathryn, is the home for officially licensed replicas with collectible items from Hellboy/B.R.P.D, Chew, Killogy, Templesmith, Head Lopper and much more.Recently, Skelton Crew Studios has opened their vault to pre-release their highly anticipated Em Cypress bust. Em is designed by Mike Norton and Israel Skelton, sculpted by Arlen Pelletier, from the Tim Seeley & Mike Norton comic Revival (Image Comics).Geek had the opportunity to chat with Israel and get the lowdown on the Em bust, his favorite pieces in the collection, how it all got started and what’s next. Skelton Crew Studio is such a quiet little company doing some big things! How did Skelton Crew Studio begin? What motivated you to start the business?Ha! Well, I guess the challenge is not to be too quiet — we’ve been working with more and more creators and building a name for ourselves over the last decade, and we’re hoping more people keep discovering us. I’ve been making things for myself since I was a kid – think Captain America’s Shield out of a saucer sled or Wolverine’s claws out of blueberry rakes – and keep that up into my 20s.A decade ago, at BangPop! Comic-Con up in Bangor, Maine, my buddy who organized the con asked me to bring my pieces up to take up table space. There, I was introduced through a friend to Joe Hil, whose first trade of “Locke & Key” was about to come out. As the con was winding down, Joe asked if I could build a real Ghost Key. Everything started from there.I worked in distribution for about 15 years before going full-time with the studio, so I knew how to get things from one place to another. I’ve always loved building replicas, and I thought it would be amazing if I could do that for a living.Em bust_ 1_1_SCSEm bust_ 1_1_SCSvia Skelton Crew Studios Em bust 1_3_SCSvia Skelton Crew Studios Em bust 1_4_SCSvia Skelton Crew Studios Em bust 1_2_SCSvia Skelton Crew Studios via Skelton Crew Studios Revival is such an underground hit in comics, and Em Cypress is such an everchanging and lovingly complex character. What made you want to partner with Tim Seeley and Mike Norton to bring Em to life? What was it about Revival as a comic and Em as a character that caught your eye?I just loved the book — Mike’s art and Tim’s writing is amazing. I love a dark book, I love a mystery, and this has everything. There’s also something to be said for along epic story. Em was a bit of an obvious choice. She’s such a badass, and, in my head, having the creep clung to the back of her dirty hoodie was something I just couldn’t shake.You guys make beautifully limited edition busts, keys, hats, etc. from some very well known comic series like Chew, Hellboy, Locke and Key, Mouse Guard, and Head Looper. Totally not playing favorites, but what are some of your favorite pieces from the collection?Thanks for the kind words! I’ve always been real partial to the Shadow Key — it was a fun build, and I built it in the time before we were digitally sculpting. I approached the key as if I were building a piece of jewelry.I also love the Roosh’s Nail from B.P.R.D. I love the lines on it, I love how simple it is, and I love how the lines really capture Mike’s art. When you work in this business, it’s not about your interpretation. It’s about having to hit different artist’s lines and make it look like this piece fell out of the pages if you shook the book upside down.via Skelton Crew StudiosWhat’s your dream series to make merchandise for? What in that series would you to make a collectible of?My own! I’ve got a few ideas that I’ve had kicking around for a long time, and it’s time to maybe have those bear fruit. That’s a goal for 2018. As for an existing series, that’s tough. I’m already working with a good chunk of my favorites. We’ve just released our new Huck statue with Mark Millar and Rafael Albuquerque, and it’s been pretty amazing to work with both of them. I’m a huge fan of Mike Mignola, and it’s been a huge honor to bring some of his pieces to life. John Layman and Rob Guillory from “CHEW” are awesome, great people, and the same for everyone on “Locke & Key.” I feel pretty lucky.Thank you so much for talking with Geek! What’s next for Skelton Crew Studios? Do you have some projects in the works that you can disclose?So many irons in the fire that I can’t talk about. I can generally say that we’ve contributed to the “Locke & Key” pilot filed last fall, can’t wait to see that. We have plush, metal, statues and vinyl pieces in different stages of pre-production, five of them are creator or creative team that we’re working with for the first time, which feels awesome – part of getting that word out about the studio.Our next release will likely be Baba Yaga’s Acorn in the B.P.R.D. Artifact Archive Collection with Mike next month, there’s a vinyl that could pop anytime, and he’s, well, eye-catching, I’ll say that.You can now pre-order the Em Cypress bust now on their website. Don’t forget to check out rest of their collection in their Shop, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.center_img Mattel Unveils Fashionable ‘Star Wars’ x Barbie DollsToy Tuesday: Yo! It’s The Best ‘G.I.

Alphabet Launches Outline VPN Service For Journalists

first_img Google has always been a friend to journalists. Now, the company is proving its loyalty with an open-source tool that grants news organizations safer access to the Internet.Developed by Alphabet-owned think tank Jigsaw (formerly Google Ideas), virtual private network Outline lets users directly own and operate their server—no third-party trust necessary.The VPN was designed for everyone—from the office luddite to most liberated geek—with a simple setup, strong encryption, and auto-updating servers.“Journalists need safe access to information to research issues, communicate with sources, and report the news,” Jigsaw product manager Santiago Andrigo wrote in a blog announcement.A virtual private network encrypts Internet traffic by bouncing it through a remote server. But while it may shield you from the prying eyes of your Internet service provider, users are still at the mercy of whoever controls the VPN.With the exception of Outline.Outline Manager lets you can create a server and share access with unlimited accounts (via Jigsaw)“Much of Jigsaw’s work involves defending news organizations from digital threats that try to block access to information,” Andrigo wrote. “We created Outline because news organizations need reliable, private Internet access to make information accessible and meaningful for their reads.“That’s a mission we share with the news industry,” he continued. “And a more informed world starts with access to information.”Plus, retaining your own server makes it easy to control traffic and maintain Internet speeds.(For the technically inclined: Outline supports modern AEAD 256-bit cipher encryption and is resistant to probing and stronger against protocol fingerprinting, “which makes it significantly harder to block by modern deep-packet-inspection software.”)Windows, Android, Chrome OS, and Linux users can sign up online for Outline Manager: Use your own infrastructure or a cloud provider to create a server and share access with unlimited accounts.Still, an early-stage product, Jigsaw expects to release versions of Outline for Apple’s macOS and iOS platforms “soon.”For more, see Geek sister site PCMag’s lineup of The Best VPN Services of 2018, as well as How to Set Up and Use a VPN.

China Set to Overtake Others in US Homebuying

first_img As the United States’ neighboring countries lose their economic edge in the nation’s home market, analysts at Capital Economics suggest China might soon become the biggest foreign buyer of U.S. housing.In a report released earlier this week, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) found foreign purchases of U.S. real estate surged in the 12 months ending in March to $92.2 billion, an increase of 35 percent over the prior period.In a note to clients, Paul Diggle, property economist at Capital Economics, insisted that foreign contributions to the housing recovery remain marginal even with the increase.”Foreign buyers remain relatively peripheral to the housing recovery for a number of reasons,” Diggle wrote. “For Canadian and Mexican buyers … currency movements have compounded the impact of rising house prices, reducing the extent to which US housing looks undervalued.”Meanwhile, income growth in China has made U.S. housing a relatively cheap investment.From April 2013 through March 2014, Chinese buyers accounted for 16 percent of foreign home sales, up from 12 percent in 2013 and just 5 percent in 2009. In dollar volume, China’s share is higher, accounting for $22 billion—about 24 percent—of sales during that period.”Put another way, the value of homes bought by Chinese buyers in the US has increased from $1.2 [billion] to $7.5 [billion], or slightly more than 500 percent, over five years,” Diggle said.While that’s still only a small fraction of the more than $1 trillion in total home purchases over the past year, Diggle adds that the influence of Chinese buyers has climbed as high as 35 percent of all sales in California and a further 28 percent in Washington, New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas.That concentration extends even further in the market for single-family homes selling for more than $500,000 in suburban areas.Even with tightening monetary policy keeping foreign demand down in the near future, Diggle predicts Chinese buyers could outweigh Canadians as the largest source of foreign demand within five years should trends continue.”The strength of Chinese demand is another reason to watch closely developments in the Californian housing market, where housing is now no better than fairly valued at the State-wide level and starting to look frothy in a number of metros,” he concludes.

ThirdQuarter GDP Gets Major Upward Revision

first_img A strong revision to consumer spending helped push the economy to its fastest growth rate in more than a decade last quarter.According to a third reading released Tuesday by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), gross domestic product (GDP) increased at an annualized rate of 5.0 percent in Q3, up from an earlier estimate of 3.9 percent and an estimate of 4.6 percent in the second quarter.It also marked the best growth rate for GDP since the third quarter of 2003, which saw the economy grow at a yearly rate of 6.9 percent.According to BEA, the latest quarterly estimate includes improved contributions from consumer spending, which is now estimated to have increased 3.2 percent compared to Q2’s 2.5 percent gain.Also improved in the third report was the contribution from nonresidential fixed investment, which increased 8.9 percent. Residential fixed investment—a measure of the housing market’s direct contribution to economic activity—increased just 3.2 percent.Despite the third quarter’s promising growth rate—which beat the 4.3 percent forecast by economists surveyed by the Wall Street Journal—analysts don’t expect the economy will be able to maintain that momentum in the fourth quarter, even with lower gas prices fueling spending.”The central story of the third and fourth quarters remains intact with the torrid growth in the second and third quarters not continuing into fourth quarter, but also not being problematic for 2015,” said Doug Handler, chief U.S. economist for IHS, which predicts real GDP growth will come in between 2.2–2.4 percent for all of 2014. “In conjunction with other recent releases on the economy, our assessment for growth [in] 2015 will now be around 3.0 percent.” Bureau of Economic Analysis Consumer spending GDP IHS Global Insight 2014-12-23 Tory Barringer in Daily Dose, Data, Government, Headlines, News Third-Quarter GDP Gets Major Upward Revisioncenter_img December 23, 2014 530 Views Sharelast_img read more
