Cato Institute Policy Analysis No. Natural Gas Regulation: Throwing Out Supply and Demand December 1, Nolan Ezra Clark. Nolan Ezra Clark is a Washington attorney currently writing a book. GAS CONTRACTS AND AGREEMENTS. Unlike oil, gas cannot be moved by truck or similar methods; it must be gathered and sent to a sales point.

Gas from several wells is gathered through a series of small pipelines (“gathering lines”) and then the gathering lines will discharge into a larger pipeline.

interstate pipeline has progressively assumed the role of an open access contract carrier.2 As a result, competitive markets for wholesale gas have emerged at the wellhead and have led to the development of spot markets and, more recently, a futures market. In part, Title 1 continued previous Orders of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) that had begun to allow higher wellhead price ceilings several years earlier when in Opinion (and A) almost tripled the ceiling price allowed for interstate wellhead purchases.

Nonetheless, the NGPA included major purchases. Technical difficulties Natural gas reservoirs are mainly distributed in the Langgu and Baxian Sags. For example, in the Langgu Sag, multistage tectonic movements not only created favorable hydrocarbon-rich zones where fault block reservoirs are developed.

Also included in the study are pre-NGPA contracts in the intrastate markets, post-NGPA offshore contracts on file at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), and some post-NGPA onshore interstate contracts.

For pre-NGPA interstate contracts, a stratified random sample of large producer contracts was taken from filings at FERC.

From there, gas will travel across one of the largest intrastate and interstate pipeline networks in the U.S., where fee-based contracts support 95% of the company's revenue. Appellant Northwest Central Pipeline Corporation, an interstate pipeline, argues that the KCC's regulation is pre-empted by federal regulation of the interstate natural gas business because it exerts pressure on pipelines to increase purchases from Hugoton producers and so affects their purchase mixes and cost structures, and because it.

Harsh Gupta, Sukanta Roy, in Geothermal Energy, Transmission of Steam. One of the chief considerations in designing a pipeline for the transmission of steam is the choosing of an appropriate diameter for the pipe so that there is not an excessive drop of pressure between the wellhead.

This chapter provides an overview of federal-level regulation of the U.S. interstate natural gas pipeline industry. To help understand the current regulatory framework, we place contemporary rules.

A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. From the wellhead to the consumer, natural gas pipeline systems provide us with a clean and efficient source of energy.

There are essentially three major types of pipelines along the transportation route: gathering systems, transmission systems, and distribution systems.

Gathering pipeline systems gather raw natural gas from production wells. Jan 06,  · Introduction. Enron Corp., which ran a formidable lobbying machine in Washington and state capitals, gained favorable treatment from Congress, federal and state governments and various regulatory agencies on no fewer than 49 occasions from the late s to the company’s bankruptcy in Decembera Center for Public Integrity analysis shows.

When the gas arrives at the pipeline, however, only cubic feet of gas remain. Pipeline. Most crude oil shipped long distances in the US goes by oil pipeline.

In58 percent of the petroleum arriving at refineries came by pipeline, up from 48 percent in Inthe United States had thousand miles of interstate oil pipelines, an increase of 29 thousand miles since From the wellhead to the consumer, petroleum pipeline systems provide us with energy fuels and products we use every day.
