Guess Who's Backing Scott Pruitt To Head The EPA? The Koch Brothers.

The two dozen nonprofit groups and Senate committee members defending Scott Pruitt, President Donald Trump's nominee for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator, have at least two things in common. Like Pruitt, they're climate science deniers. And, like Pruitt, most of them are funded by Charles and David Koch, the billionaire brothers who own the coal, oil and gas conglomerate Koch Industries. That funding helps explain why they all consistently misrepresent the scientific consensus on climate change. After all, money buys influence, and since 1997, Koch foundations have paid a network of think tanks and advocacy groups more than $88 million to spread climate science disinformation -- more than twice what ExxonMobil, the second-biggest denier-network funder, has spent. Likewise, Koch Industries has contributed $38.5 million to federal candidates over the last 25 years and spent another $117 million since 1998 on lobbying. The Kochs didn't endorse Trump for president, but there's no doubt they would consider a guy like Pruitt heading the EPA a dream come true. When David Koch ran for vice president on the Libertarian Party ticket back in 1980, his party platform called for abolishing the EPA (and a number of other federal agencies, along with Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security). Although Pruitt won't be able to go that far, his six-year track record as Oklahoma's attorney general suggests he will do what he can -- with the help of Koch-funded members of Congress and the rest of the Trump administration -- to defund the agency and undermine its authority. Koch Denial Network is Alive and Well In advance of Pruitt's nomination hearing before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on January 18, a coalition of 23 nonprofit groups sent a letter to the entire Senate urging his confirmation. "Attorney General Pruitt has consistently fought for Oklahoma families and communities," the letter states, "and has been a stalwart defender against federal intrusion into state and individual rights." In fact, Pruitt has consistently fought for the corporate polluters that have financed his political campaigns, dismantling his office's Environmental Protection Unit, halting efforts to reduce poultry manure in Oklahoma waterways, opposing a wind energy transmission line, and suing the EPA 14 times to block stronger air, water and climate safeguards that would better protect Oklahoma families and communities. But I digress. Let's follow the money. The groups that signed the letter endorsing Pruitt include such high-profile, climate-science-denier organizations as the American Energy Alliance (AEA), whose president, Thomas Pyle, is a former Koch Industries lobbyist; the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), whose top climate disinformer, Myron Ebell, oversaw the Trump EPA transition team; and Heritage Action, the political arm of the Heritage Foundation. Heritage economist David Kreutzer, who maintains there is no justification for Obama administration climate policies, also served on the EPA transition team. Those three groups and at least 15 other letter signatories have received generous support from one or more of the Koch brothers' numerous foundations, including American Encore, the Charles Koch Foundation, Charles Koch Institute, the now defunct Claude R. Lambe Charitable Foundation, and Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, a de facto Koch bank that distributes contributions from wealthy conservatives to free-market, anti-government groups. A number of the organizations on the letter are also funded by Donors Trust, a secretive, pass-through money laundering operation that received more than $13 million from the Kochs' Knowledge and Progress Fund between 2005 and 2014. Eight of the signatories, including AEA, CEI and Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform, collectively received $30.2 million between 2010 and 2014 from American Encore, a "social welfare" nonprofit organization the Kochs established in 2009 as the Center to Protect Patient Rights (CPPR). The organization has been one of the Koch network's primary conduits for funneling dark money -- private donations not subject to public disclosure -- to conservative campaign funding groups. American Encore is no fan of environmental protections. A December 2016 blog post on its website calls for slashing "excessive and burdensome regulations" on hydraulic fracturing, opening up the Atlantic and Pacific coasts to oil drilling, and canceling the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan to curb electric utility carbon emissions. A significant chunk of the American Encore-CPPR budget came from Freedom Partners, which gave the organization a whopping $115 million between 2012 and 2013. From 2012 through 2015, Freedom Partners also donated nearly $38 million to five of the groups on the Pruitt support letter: AEA, American Commitment, Club for Growth, Heritage Action and the 60 Plus Association, which spent the bulk of its $16.5 million in Freedom Partner grants on political advertising. Like American Encore, Freedom Partners' goal is to roll back consumer, public health, environmental and workplace safeguards. It recently posted A Roadmap to Repeal, a list of Obama administration initiatives that can be repealed in the new administration's first 100 days and others that would require a longer term strategy. In the short term, Freedom Partners calls on the Trump administration to rescind the moratorium on new federal land coal leases, abandon the Paris climate agreement, and block any proposed EPA programs related to the Clean Power Plan. It also recommends that Congress repeal a number of regulations finalized during the last 60 legislative days of 2016, including rules that protect streams from coal mining, cut heavy-duty truck carbon emissions, and reduce methane leaks from oil and gas operations on public lands. Over the long term, Freedom Partners wants the administration and Congress to kill the Clean Power Plan and the "Waters of the United States" rule, which extends federal protection to headwaters and wetlands that feed drinking water supplies. Koch-Funded Senators Fawn Over Pruitt How much impact could Freedom Partners and the rest of the Koch network have? Quite a bit, actually. They are planning to spend $300 million to $400 million over the next two years to influence politics and public policy, and Marc Short -- Freedom Partners' president up until February 2016 -- was just named the White House director of legislative affairs. Formerly Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff when Pence was in the House of Representatives, Short likely will find a receptive audience on the Hill -- at least from one side of the aisle. The welcome Pruitt got at his Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee hearing two weeks ago may be an indication of things to come. Republican committee members fell all over themselves to praise Pruitt and attack the EPA for, as Chairman John Barrasso put it, creating "broad and legally questionable new regulations [that] have done great damage...." Democratic committee members, conversely, pressed Pruitt on his financial ties to fossil fuel interests, his efforts to weaken environmental safeguards, and his scientifically indefensible claim that the role human activity plays in causing climate change is "subject to continuing debate." Why were Republican EPW Committee members so hospitable to Pruitt? Like Pruitt, most of them are on the Koch gravy train and their campaign coffers are flush with fossil fuel industry cash. Nine of the 11 Republicans on the committee together received $368,000 in campaign contributions from Koch Industries over the last five years. Even more telling, the company was among the top 10 donors for seven of those nine beneficiaries and the top donor for two -- Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma and Jeff Sessions of Alabama, who is in line to become the Trump administration's attorney general. In addition to the Koch funding, the Republican committee members received more than $1.5 million since 2011 from a veritable Who's Who of energy companies, including coal giants Alpha Natural Resources, Arch Coal, Murray Energy and Peabody Energy; oil and gas titans BP, Chevron, Devon Energy, ExxonMobil, Marathon Oil and Valero Energy; and electric utilities American Electric Power, NextEra Energy and Southern Company. Pruitt, meanwhile, received $62,500 since 2010 from Koch Industries and eight other companies listed above, including Devon Energy, ExxonMobil and Valero Energy. By contrast, none of the 10 Democrats on the committee received Koch money, let alone any coal or oil and gas industry support. The only energy-related businesses that contributed to their campaigns in the last five years were three diversified electric utilities that are heavily invested in nuclear power: Dominion Resources, Entergy and Exelon. Drain the Swamp? Donald Trump campaigned as a populist who promised to stand up to Washington lobbyists and "drain the swamp." The back story on Scott Pruitt -- and the vast sums spent by the Kochs and other fossil fuel interests to promote their agenda -- tell a very different story. Still, one may fairly question what any of this actually proves. Does money really dictate the positions that a nonprofit think tank or U.S. senator takes, be it on climate change or any other policy issue? As it turns out, none other than David Koch addressed this very question in an interview with Brian Doherty, author of the 2007 book, Radicals for Capitalism: The Freewheeling History of the Modern American Libertarian Movement. Koch was talking specifically about funding think tanks and advocacy groups, but what he said could easily be applied to elected officials as well. "If we're going to give a lot of money, we'll make darn sure they spend it in a way that goes along with our interest," Koch told Doherty. "And if they make a wrong turn and start doing things we don't agree with, we withdraw funding. We do exert that kind of control." I rest my case.

50 проектов, который изменят рынок СПГ

  Развитие рынка сжиженного природного газа набирает обороты, а главные конкуренты в глобальной борьбе "вышли на заключительный круг" в этой гонке. США и Австралия постепенно приближаются к Катару, который сейчас является мировым лидером по экспорту СПГ. Основные импортеры СПГ в миреВ то время как экспорт СПГ из Катара в 2012 г. составлял треть всего рынка, но ситуация в ближайшие десять лет может полностью поменяться. По данным Международного газового союза, Австралия реализует семь проектов по экспорту СПГ, общей стоимостью в $200 млрд, а потенциал страны увеличивается в 3 раза до 86 млн тонн в год, а к 2018 г. Австралия обгонит катар в качестве крупнейшего экспортера СПГ в мире. Соединенные Штаты, однако, не отстают. Сланцевый бум в США привел к избытку газа в стране, чем экспортеры СПГ стремятся воспользоваться. На прошлой неделе терминал Cove Point в Мэриленде, принадлежащий Dominion Resources, получил разрешение отправлять газ на экспорт, став четвертым экспортным проектом, который получил разрешение ругялтора. Издание Oil Price представило график 50 проектов в области СПГ по всему миру, который были утверждены или находятся в стадии строительства. 2014 Кертис Айленд (Curtis Island), Австралия Три терминала находятся в стадии строительства, которое должно завершиться в 2014-2015 гг. Общая мощность составит 28,8 млн тонн в год. Также Arrow Energy Pty развивает проект по строительству четвертого терминала. Эти терминалы являются первыми в мире, способными преобразовывать газ из угольных пластов в СПГ. Циндао (Qingdao), Китай Терминал Sinopec, мощностью 3 млн тонн в год, как ожидается, будет завершен к концу текущего года. Клайпеда, Литва Государственная компания Klaipedos Nafta запустит плавающий терминал СПГ в конце 2014 г., что должно помочь Литве диверсифицировать импорт газа и снизить зависимость от единственного поставщика, которым является российский "Газпром". 2015 Толу (Tolu), Колумбия Компании Pacific Rubiales Energy и Exmar ожидают, что терминал на побережье Карибского моря начнет функционировать в начале 2015 г. Горгона СПГ (Gorgon LNG), Австралия Терминал СПГ, строящийся силами Chevron, планируется завершить в середине 2015 г. Нефтяная компания пытается зафиксировать 20-летние контракты. При этом проект является самым дорогим в мире, его стоимость составляет $54 млрд. Sabine Pass, США Строительство двух очередей терминала СПГ в Луизиане было завершено на 65% в июне. Терминал, как ожидается, будет готов к поставкам уже к концу 2015 г. Шэньчжэнь Диефу (Shenzhen Diefu), Китай Строительство проекта CNOOC началось в 2012 г. и должно быть завершено в 2015 г. Мощность проекта составляет 4 млн тонн в год. Донгги-Сеноро (Donggi-Senoro), Индонезия Ввод в эксплуатацию терминала, мощность которое достигает 2,1 млн тонн, был перенесен с 2014 г. на марта 2015 г. 2016 Уитстон-Лаго (Wheatstone-Iago), Австралия Shell в начале этого года продала 8-процентную долю в проекте за $1,1 млрд Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Co. Самая большая доля в 64% у Chevron. Проект, мощностью 8,9 млн тонн, должен быть завершен в конце 2016 г. Остров Эльба, США Первая очередь проекта в Джорджии предполагает мощность в 2,4 млн тонн в год. Запущена она будет в конце 2016 г. или в начале 2017 г. Вторая очередь будет начата в 2017-2018 г. Порто Эмпедокле (Porto Empedocle), Италия Проект в Сицилии находится в стадии строительства, его завершение планируется в 2016 г., а мощность составит 5,8 млн тонн в год. Проект принадлежит Nuove Energy, JV of Enel и Siderurgica Investment Group. Китимат СПГ (Kitimat LNG), Канада Окончательное инвестиционное решение по проекту компании Chevron ожидается в ближайшее время. При этом ожидается также подписание договоров на 60-70% мощности. Монтевидео, Уругвай.  Мощность терминала GDF Suez и Marubeni составит 263 тыс. кубометров. Запущен проект будет в конце 2016 г. 2017 В 2017 г. планируется запуск сразу 10 проектов. Большая часть из них располагается в США, но также 2 проекта будут запущены в России. Проект "Сахалин-2", реализуемый "Газпромом", Shell, Mitsui, Mitsubishi и "Ямал СПГ", реализуемый компаниями "НОВАТЭК", Total, CNPC.  "Сахалин-2"  В 2009 г. в рамках проекта "Сахалин-2" введен в строй первый в России завод по производству сжиженного природного газа (СПГ), и компании - участники проекта начали поставки СПГ зарубежным потребителям. В 2010 г. заработала вторая очередь завода, предприятие вышло на проектную мощность - 9,6 млн тонн СПГ в год. Третья технологичная линия проекта может быть завершена уже в 2017 г.   "Ямал СПГ"  "Ямал СПГ", проект стоимостью в $27 млрд по освоению газовых месторождений на северо-западе Сибири, направлен на то, чтобы удвоить долю России на быстрорастущем рынке сжиженного природного газа (СПГ). Если проект будет идти по плану, то Россия сможет доказать Западу, что страна с крупнейшей в мире энергетической промышленностью не прогнется под давлением западных санкций. Россия заявляет, что сделает все возможное, чтобы проект "Ямал СПГ" функционировал. Акционеры уже вложили в проект "Ямал СПГ" $6 млрд. Проект предусматривает строительство завода по производству сжиженного природного газа (СПГ) мощностью 16,5 млн тонн в год на ресурсной базе Южно-Тамбейского месторождения. Завод строят в три очереди по 5,5 млн тонн СПГ в год.  2018-2019 За два года в различных частях планеты появится еще 12 терминалов. Один из них – проект "Газпрома" во Владивостоке.  "Владивосток СПГ"  В феврале "Газпром" принял окончательное инвестиционное решение по проекту "Владивосток-СПГ", в марте утверждены план мероприятий по осуществлению проекта и план работ по подготовке ресурсной базы для проекта. Проект будет ориентирован на рынки АТР, в том числе на Японию. Его мощность составит не мене 15 млн тонн в год, а в 2018 г. будет введена в эксплуатацию первая линия проекта, мощность которой составит 5 млн тонн. Проект реализуется "Газпромом" совместно с Агентством по природным ресурсам и энергетике Министерства экономики, торговли и промышленности Японии (АПРЭ). 2020 и далее Планируется запуск 6 проектов, в основном в Австралии и США. Но их перспективы пока точно не определены, а реализация даже не начата.
