As power producers in the United States increasingly prefer utilising natural gas over coal, the industry emitted 42% less sulphur dixoide (SO2) and 40% less sulfur dioxide (NOx) (40%) and SO2, a study finds.
Servitization – a process where a manufacturer provides its expertise and service throughout the life of its product – can help combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants in the UK meet the challenges of a changing energy market, Alexander Bill, Service Manager at Alstom's Power Division told Gas to Power Journal in an interview.
Services contractor, Quanta Power Generation, has been awarded a engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to construct a 120 MW gas-fired power plant in Alaska. The George M. Sullivan Plant 2 Generation Replacement Project in Anchorage will utilise GE LM6000 combustion turbine in a 2x1 combined-cycle configuration.
A bill for what is arguably the most liberal energy reform in Mexico to date is seen to end inertia, allowing private companies to participate in exploration and production (E&P) activities.

Single purpose LNG receiving terminals (SPT) attached to combined-cycle gas power plants may be profitable solutions for small and medium scale LNG storage in the future, according to Wärtsilä. The Finnish plant and services provider has just signed a contract to supply an LNG terminal to Tornio in Finland and expects a 30% rise in global LNG shipments by 2016.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published revised limits for carbon dioxide emissions from power plants today, for the first time providing separate rules for coal-fired and natural gas-fired plants. The new proposal outlines a limit for coal-fired plants with attached carbon capture and storage (CCS) of 1,100 lb CO2/MWh.
Arctic chill spreads from the U.S. Midwest to the East Coast, propelling up prices for gas and electricity as power producers scramble to meet rising demand. Natural gas prices for next-day delivery on the Transco pipeline into New York reached records of $90/MMBtu on the ICE Futures exchange while day-ahead electricity prices jumped to more than $255/MWh in both New England and NYC.
The fuel source of the M.L. Kapp Generating Station in Clinton, Iowa, will be converted from coal to natural gas in the spring of 2015, Alliant Energy announced, suggesting the fuel switch is "an economical way for the facility to meet future environmental regulations".
