Natural gas vehicles join GE’s electric fleet amid disapointing electric car sales. GE: Some of those "electric" vehicles that we said we'd buy will actually be powered by natural gas or propane

GE: Some of those "electric" vehicles that we said we'd buy will actually be powered by natural gas or propane

 

While electric cars might have seemed like a solution two years ago, lukewarm sales and questions about reliability shook that notion.

 

So GE is adding natural gas vehicules to its fleet, because demand is there.

MIT: Shale Gas Will Fuel a U.S. Manufacturing Boom

MIT:  Shale Gas Will Fuel a U.S. Manufacturing Boom | Innovative energy solutions | Scoop.it
Chemical producers abandoned the U.S. in droves.

 

Cheap natural gas is luring them back.

 

The impact of the resurgence is being felt most strongly in the $148 billion market for ethylene, the world’s most high-volume chemical, and the foundation for many other industries.

Producing Natural Gas, Protecting Water: New Innovations Advance Chevron's Environmental Stewardship and Performance in the Marcellus Shale

Producing Natural Gas, Protecting Water:  New Innovations Advance Chevron's Environmental Stewardship and Performance in the Marcellus Shale | Innovative energy solutions | Scoop.it

In Pennsylvania, Chevron now uses fewer chemicals in its fracturing fluids, reducing the number required by 77%.

 

Chevron is working to capture and reuse 100% of the fracturing fluids and water produced with the natural gas.

 

"The technology enables us to reach this goal, and we're investing in infrastructure that will allow us to do that," said Svarczkopf, Chevron's manager of water technology.

 

Capture and reuse reduces freshwater consumption as well as the need for water trucking, transfer and disposal.

 

Chevron also has started using water pipelines to lessen the need for tanker trucks to transport water.  

 

"By treating water right on our pad, we can take water from one well to another, reducing truck traffic by 50%," said Svarczkopf.

 

He also is working to convert pit-based water-treatment systems to deconstructible vertical tanks, which would be in place for 20 weeks and then moved to another site. This system would diminish the drilling-pad footprint and reduce reclamation needs.
