Energy Industry Target of Cyber-Attacks and Congressional Efforts to Bolster Security

Cybersecurity of the electric power grid and energy sector as a whole has been the subject of heightened Congressional attention given the integral role the industry plays in our economy. According to a 2015 U.S. Senate committee report, nearly one-third of reported cyber-attacks involve the energy sector. Not surprisingly, the 114th Congress (2015-2016) has introduced … Continue reading

Natural Gas Pipelines to Bolster Bi-Directional Capacity in Northeast up to 32%, EIA Data Shows

By 2017, natural gas pipelines are projected to convert up to 32% of their pipeline capacity into the Northeast to support the bi-directional flow of natural gas out of the region to the South and West, according to a U.S. Energy Information Administration (“EIA”) December 2, 2014 report.  It is well known that the increased … Continue reading »

Natural Gas Infrastructure Development in Focus to Support Shift from Traditional Supply and Flow of Gas

Last year we started our discussion of the developing shift in flow of natural gas from the traditional South-to-North/West-to-East path to a North-to-South/East-to-West path as a result of the abundance of natural gas now being produced out of the Marcellus and Utica Shale regions.  We highlighted the impact that this reversal in gas flow would … Continue reading »

Iroquois South-to-North Project (SoNo) Another Example of Shale Gas Production Reversing Historical Gas Flows

            We’ve discussed recently how the regional production and availability of shale gas has led to dramatic changes in the historical flow of domestic natural gas – here and here.  Recently, Iroquois Gas Transmission System (“Iroquois”)  announced an open season  on a South-to-North Project (“SoNo”) that would reverse the traditional southern flow of gas on the … Continue reading »
