New York Poised to Close Last Coal-fire Power Plant

LCG, December 4, 2019--The last operating coal-fired power plant in New York is moving toward closure shortly. Last month, Somerset Operating Company, a subsidiary of Riesling Power LLC, submitted a request to the New York State Public Service Commission (NYSPSC) to waive the state's required, 180-day notice to close the Somerset Station, allowing the facility to be retired on February 15, 2020. Closure is contingent on approvals by both NYSPSC and the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), which will evaluate if it will cause an adverse effect on grid reliability.

Gas Discovery Made in British Columbia

LCG, July 25, 2002--A gas exploration venture in eastern British Columbia has yielded a discovery in the Monkman area, the oil and gas producer Talisman Energy announced Thursday.

The other partners involved are Anadarko Candada Corp., National Fuel Exploration Corp., and Oiltec Resources Ltd. A well tested to a total measured depth of 4,801 meters is predicted to produce between 15 million to 37 million cubic feet per day, and is scheduled to begin production by September.

Talisman president and chief executive Jim Buckee stated in a release that the well in Monkman, the first in the region, will be followed by more wells this year and next. "Although an extensive exploration program will be required, we believe currently identified locations could contain more than one trillion cubic feet of unrisked reserves," he said.
