Let's transform energy -- by leaving natural gas in the ground: Jonathan Deal at TEDxStellenbosch
In response to T. Boone Pickens' TED Talk, "Let's tranform energy -- with natural gas", Jonathan Deal questions the promotion of natural gas and shale gas mining as a viable solution to future energy security. He presents the harsh truths of climate change that lay ahead, and the numbers that would make pursuing natural gas simply stupid. With South Africa's fragile Karoo at the brink of being fracked for natural gas, Jonathan calls for citizens to ask their own questions and act on them, as he has. Karoo author, accomplished photographer and freelance journalist, Jonathan has, in his efforts to prevent an ill-considered rush to mine shale gas in South Africa, evolved into a passionate and tireless environmentalist as chair of environmental NGO Treasure Karoo Action Group. Under his leadership, TKAG has established a position as the official opposition to fracking in South Africa, and was recently recognized by Mail & Guardian as the winner of the NPO category in the newspaper's 'Greening the Future' Awards.

Shale cowboys: fracking under Trump - Docu - 2017
Having your own energy sources is an important weapon in the world economy. Since 2013, the United States has made important foes of fossil-rich opponents like Saudi Arabia important in extracting shale gas and shale oil from its own soil. The price for a barrel of crude oil fell from 100 to less than $50. The Texan shale producers who survived this price tag are the new heroes of the United States. Under president Donald Trump, the shale cowboys are striving to help Europe to become independent. On research in Trumpland. Original title: Schaliecowboys Schale stone was considered worthless by the oil and gas industry in the past. They passed through on their way to expensive oil and gas that lay deeper. Until a small Texan gas company found a way in the late 1990's to win gas from hard-shelled rock. By making deep boreholes in the stone layers of the soil and injecting a large amount of water and chemicals under high pressure, shale gas and shale oil are won. With this method, later known as fracking, the energy market changed forever. In the meantime, one third of gas and oil production in the United States is a shale.And the bid consumer of energy is not only content to be independent, the country is now even an exporter of energy. OPEC, the organization of (other) oil exporting countries, keeps the oil price on the world market as low as possible, to make American production worthless. But for the moment, the oil countries do not get the shale cowboys on their knees. How does this controversial innovation put the world of energy upside down? Because this new offer of cheap energy really gives us more time to bridge the transition to a sustainable world of solar and wind energy. A few years ago, all experts and analysts went out of the Peak Oil Theory. Namely, the fossil reserves in the world were running out. The shale revolution turned this theory into old dirt in just a few years. Fracking technology opens a whole new reservoir of fossil fuels. The election of President Trump was greeted in Texas with joy and also seen as a recognition for what the shale revolution is going to be. And the future is even more rosy: recent geological research showed that hundreds of billions of dollars of shale oil are still in the so-called Wolf Camp Shale Field in West Texas. Who are the people behind this shale revolution? A portrait of the pioneers and the new Shale millionaires in Texas. Daniel Yergin (energy specialist and author of The Prize and The Quest), Dan Steward, Kent Bowker and Nick Steinsberger (Shale Gas Revolution Geologists and Pioneers), Matt Miller (Dallas Gray Gray Energy Partners), Doug Shanda (Head of Operations Cheniere Energy in Port Arthur), Tommy Taylor (Director of Fasken Oil & Ranch from Midland Texas).

Coal Mining 100 Years Ago: "The Story of Coal" ~ 1920 Bray Studios
Geology & Earth Sciences playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL33B1A9216BB65F7A more at http://scitech.quickfound.net How coal is formed, and how coal is mined. Silent. Subtitled "Studies in Chemistry." Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound. Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Coal (from the Old English term col, which has meant "mineral of fossilized carbon" since the 13th century) is a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock usually occurring in rock strata in layers or veins called coal beds or coal seams. The harder forms, such as anthracite coal, can be regarded as metamorphic rock because of later exposure to elevated temperature and pressure. Coal is composed primarily of carbon along with variable quantities of other elements, chiefly hydrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and nitrogen. Throughout history, coal has been a useful resource. It is primarily burned for the production of electricity and/or heat, and is also used for industrial purposes, such as refining metals. A fossil fuel, coal forms when dead plant matter is converted into peat, which in turn is converted into lignite, then sub-bituminous coal, after that bituminous coal, and lastly anthracite. This involves biological and geological processes that take place over a long period. Coal is the largest source of energy for the generation of electricity worldwide, as well as one of the largest worldwide anthropogenic sources of carbon dioxide releases. In 1999 world gross carbon dioxide emissions from coal usage were 8,666 million tonnes of carbon dioxide. Coal-fired electric power generation emits around 2,000 pounds of carbon dioxide for every megawatt-hour generated, which is almost double the approximately 1100 pounds of carbon dioxide released by a natural gas-fired electric plant per megawatt-hour generated. Because of this higher carbon efficiency of natural gas generation, as the fuel mix in the United States has changed to reduce coal and increase natural gas generation, carbon dioxide emissions have fallen. Those measured in the first quarter of 2012 were the lowest of any recorded for the first quarter of any year since 1992. Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction. Since 1983 the world top coal producer is China, in 2011 China produced 3,520 millions of tonnes of coal -- 49.5% of 7,695 millions tonnes world coal production. In 2011 other large producers were United States (993 millions tonnes), India (589), European Union (576) and Australia (416). In 2010 largest exporters were Australia with 328 million tonnes (27.1% of world coal export) and Indonesia with 316 millions tonnes (26.1%), while largest importers were Japan with 207 million tonnes (17.5% of world coal import), China with 195 million tonnes (16.6%) and South Korea with 126 million tonnes (10.7%)... Formation At various times in the geologic past, the Earth had dense forests in low-lying wetland areas. Due to natural processes such as flooding, these forests were buried under the soil. As more and more soil deposited over them, they were compressed. The temperature also rose as they sank deeper and deeper. As the process continued the plant matter was protected from biodegradation and oxidation, usually by mud or acidic water. This trapped the carbon in immense peat bogs that were eventually covered and deeply buried by sediments. Under high pressure and high temperature, dead vegetation was slowly converted to coal. As coal contains mainly carbon, the conversion of dead vegetation into coal is called carbonization. The wide, shallow seas of the Carboniferous era provided ideal conditions for coal formation, although coal is known from most geological periods. The exception is the coal gap in the Permian--Triassic extinction event, where coal is rare. Coal is known from Precambrian strata, which predate land plants — this coal is presumed to have originated from residues of algae...

Gas 3.0: LNG Distributed Production and Virtual Pipeline
The Cryobox™ liquefaction technology has been upgraded to a fully mobile configuration to accommodate the dynamics of the oil and gas field operations: the Cryobox-Trailer™. This new equipment from the Gas 3.0 Solutions engineered by Galileo Technologies can be relocated within hours to liquefy natural gas at any site, without any heavy lifting equipment. The Cryobox-Trailer eliminates the necessity of gathering infrastructure, enabling you as an oil producer to monetize the well testing and the flare gas reduction right from day one. With a daily processing capacity of 750,000 standard cubic feet (SCF) of natural gas per Cryobox Trailer, you can add or remove units to fit the flow rate of the producing wells. While liquefying on-site, the Cryobox Trailer units enable the distribution of LNG in cryogenic ISO containers via Virtual Pipeline™ and apply logistics similar to those of other liquid fuels. You monetize LNG to several potential high horsepower consumers and/or transport it by road to a valorization site for its injection into the natural gas grid. The multi-stage liquefaction cycle of the Cryobox-Trailer offers approximately 10,000 gallons per day of LNG. This cycle eliminates inerts, recovers boil-off and provides emission-free LNG storage and loading. This feature avoids natural gas waste, ensuring safe operations in compliance with environmental regulations. Thanks to its cold start-up capacity, the Cryobox-Trailer reaches peak production in only 10 minutes, without any energy losses or inefficiencies. In addition, using the same natural gas field as fuel, the Cryobox-Trailer will drastically improve your economics. Through the minimization of dynamic components, the use of fluids, the labor and the proven technology of the Cryobox-Trailer, this will ensure you an autonomous operation rate over 99% in remote areas. Currently, 14 Cryobox-Trailers and 5 mobile ZPTS™ Plants for gas conditioning are being assembled at Galileo facilities. These units will liquefy natural gas from several stranded gas wells in Mendoza Province, Argentina, and will supply up to 130,000 gallons of LNG per day via Virtual Pipeline. The LNG output from this fully mobile LNG Distributed Production Platform will fuel the natural gas-fired power station that Galileo built for its subsidiary Methax. Installed at a key node of the provincial grid, this new power station will supply 41 megawatts (MW), which will alleviate the stress on transport and distribution power lines. Gas 3.0™ means gas from any source to the consumers. For this instance, it will convert stranded gas to electricity for 125 thousand inhabitants.

South Africa faces environmental concerns over fracking
Farmers in South Africa's Karoo region fear fracking could devastate their environment in the face of a desperate need for alternative energy supplies to fuel its growing economy. Using a process called hydraulic fracturing, one drills into the ground - then horizontally as small explosions pierce the shale rock. Water, sand and chemicals are then forced into the rock to release the gas. But fracking is controversial and locals are concerned about what impact that is going to have on the environment. Oil companies insist that drilling for gas in Africa's largest economy will bring jobs and development -- without destroying the environment. Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports from the Karoo.

East Africa is fast becoming one of the world's most interesting oil and gas hotspots. For many years the area was neglected by the world's oil and gas industry, and even in Africa it was overshadowed by the rapid development in West Africa and the established markets in North Africa. However, with the discovery of both oil & gas reserves in the region over the past five years, opportunities are being created within a number of East African nations.

Fracking in Botswana
Fracking is a highly controversial practise. Although it is an effective method of extracting natural gas, it is also a destructive and disruptive process. Fracking's detrimental effects have already been noticed in areas of long term operation and unfortunately for South Africa, these dangerous practises will soon be coming our way when fracking begins the Karoo. However South Africa is not the only country in Southern African to take this leap into hydraulic fracturing. Botswana has made provisions for shale gas extraction throughout the Kalahari landscape, even in some of the countries beautiful nature reserves. Contamination of ground water is one of the greatest concerns around fracking. Ground water not only an important resource for local communities but for the environment and its wildlife as well. We follow Jeff Barbee, a flimmaker and journalist, as he reveals both the effects of fracking and his findings in southern Africa.

US$ 1.4bn Ethiopia-Djibouti oil pipeline project given greenlight
Construction of US$ 1.4bn Ethiopia-Djibouti oil pipeline has finally been given authorization to commence after an agreement was signed between the two countries on February 7 this month. The project is set to take three years according to the Ethiopian Ambassador to Djibouti Suleman Dedefo. The oil pipeline, which measures 550km in length, will stretch from the Djibout port to a fuel depot in Awash and find its way via Ethiopia’s eastern town, Dire Dawa. The fuel is at the end going to be distributed to the whole nation from Awash. The oil pipeline construction project will be managed by the US-based African infrastructure development company Black Rhino. The signing was done by Ethiopia’s Minister for Mines, Tolosa Shagi and witnessed by Djibouti’s Minister for Energy in charge of Natural Resources, Ali Yacoub Mahamoud. The fuel reservoir project is anticipated to minimize fuel transportation cost in the region and reduce usage of trucks ferrying the fuel from Djibouti to Ethiopia. At the moment, Ethiopia imports petroleum using trucks with benzene imported from Sudan to the local market. Other oil products which are come from the Djibouti ports make up 80% percent of total oil imports. Black Rhino Group and MOGS (Mining, Oil & Gas Services) had submitted proposal for the oil pipeline project late last year.
