What is LNG? Turning natural gas into liquid | Natural Gas
As global demand for natural gas grows, companies are using advanced technology to transport it from source to customers. Gas can be piped over relatively short distances. But cooling the gas to -162°C (-260°F) turns it to liquid for easier, safe shipment to faraway markets overseas. Shell provided the natural gas for the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) project more than 50 years ago. Today the world's largest provider of LNG, Shell continues to develop innovative approaches to unlock new resources of natural gas. In North-West Australia, for example, Shell is working with partners to build a giant floating production and liquefaction facility at sea, Prelude FLNG. Welcome to Shell’s official YouTube channel.

🇦🇺 Australia's boomtown curse | 101 East
Australia is blessed with rugged beauty and a wealth of natural resources - including coal, iron, natural gas and gold. Such minerals are powering Australia's economy to record highs. And as demand from China for more resources grows, new mines continue to open across the country. But critics say there is a dark side to this success story. Mining regions attract transient workers keen to make a quick buck, creating social and environmental problems and a rising crime rate. Mines are also draining Australia's pool of skilled labour from other industries and driving up wages. 101 East asks: What is the cost of Australia's mining boom? Here Australian 101 East fixer Sian Gard takes us behind the scenes of the 12-day film shoot with reporter-producer Chan Tau Chou and cameraman Lee Ali. When you travel what is the worst thing that could happen? Some might say missing a flight, others might say you get crammed into the centre seat on a full flight. But when you are part of a film crew, one of the more difficult challenges is travelling with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment. When an international film crew from Al Jazeera English calls you and says they want to come to Australia and film a story about the mining industry in two weeks time, the first thing you say is "I would love to be a part of this incredible story". The second thing you do? Start working fast. The scope and depth of the mining industry, its impact on the country and the state can be broken down into small digestible chunks as political, economic and social, but the bigger picture is a great deal more complicated. The Australian mining industry has seen exponential growth over the last 10 years with increasing exports to China. Western Australia, considered the economic hub of the country, now holds the nation's purse strings and is host to some of the world's most influential mining and resource sector companies. Perth, considered the second-most isolated city in the world, has seen changes on many fronts that not only includes an increase in resource dollars but a higher cost of living, a politically strong liberal state government and increasing financial disparity between mining and resource sector employees and everyone else. So how does one get all these issues into one story? You make phone calls and lots of them. One-hundred-and-eighty-one kilogrammes of camera equipment and an introductory dinner later, we are off filming in Perth and Karratha. We have 12 days to interview a range of people invested in the mining and resources sector in various ways. Finance experts, counsellors who see the downside of living a Fly-In-Fly-Out (FIFO) lifestyle, business operators who say their home towns are dying due to the mining industry and police who are left to clean up the alcohol and drug fuelled mess from workers blowing off steam. The biggest challenge of a shoot on this scale? Distance, time and getting people to talk on camera. Logistically, organising a film shoot for a crew that is flying from Malaysia to Perth in western Australia and then Karratha in the north-west of western Australia, with budgets and deadlines is exciting, fun and a challenge. Accommodation, hire cars, flights, places to eat, filming permissions and scheduling interviews, your world becomes one mission and one only. Get what the film crew needs so that the story is done. Karratha in the north of the state is a 22-hour drive by car or a two-hour flight on one of two commercial carriers that fly every hour to the isolated desert town. After checking in with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment or 13 cases of luggage and arriving in Karratha, we unpack and our long days begin. The strain of putting together a half-hour documentary in a foreign country and dealing with tight deadlines can put a great deal of pressure on any crew. People generally get tired, they snap and sometimes when you are confined to a small space for hours on end (i.e. a car that is loaded to the roof with camera equipment) the last thing you want to do is see the people you are working with. But Chan Tau Chou and Lee Ali approached the long stressful days with humour, grace, professionalism and the ability to sleep in the most unusual locations (on top of windy rocky outcrops). Filming in the north-west was a whirlwind of driving long distances, climbing rocky terrain, rising at 4am and falling into bed at midnight with back-to-back interviews in between. I am excited to see the final product of Australia's boomtown curse. I think it is a story that people need to hear about.

A RIVER ON FIRE! Gas explodes from Australian river near fracking site.
A RIVER ON FIRE! Gas explodes from Australian river near fracking site. I was shocked by force of the explosion when I tested whether gas boiling through the Condamine River, Qld was flammable. So much gas is bubbling through the river that it held a huge flame. There has been concern that fracking and extraction of coal seam gas could cause gas to migrate through the rock. Not only is it polluting the river and air, but methane is an extremely potent heat trapping gas. Fugitive emissions from the unconventional gas industry could be a major contributor to climate change and make gas as dirty as burning coal. Gas first started bubbling though the river shortly after the coal seam gas industry took off in the Chinchilla area. Since then the volume of gas bubbling through the river has massively increased and has spread along the river. You can see stakes in the river bank were the Queensland Government has marked each gas seep. You can also see pipework near the river where Origin Energy has installed for monitoring the gas bubbling through the river. Thanks to John Jenkyn for taking me up the river in his tinnie. He's a champion!

Chevron CEO talks about the future of LNG
Australia's liquefied natural gas(LNG) supply may be heating up just as prices of the commodity are hovering around 18-year-lows, but the outlook for the industry is still solid, an Australian minister suggests. A record $200 billion has been poured into Australia LNG production in the last decade, with the country set to overtake Qatar as the world largest LNG exporter by 2020. LNG is a natural gas, mostly methane, that has been cooled until it becomes liquid for easier transport and storage. It is a cleaner-burning fossil fuel than rivals coal and oil. But even though these mega-projects are coming online amid the price slump, that shouldn't dent expectations for the industry's outlook, said Josh Frydenberg, Australia's minister for resources, energy and Northern Australia. "I think people are very positive about its future and that's driven by what I call the mega-trends in demographics: The increase in population particularly in Asia, the growing middle classes, the increase in urbanization -- all that is driving a greater demand for gas," Frydenberg said on the sidelines of an industry conference in Perth. But just because demand for LNG may pick up, industry players weren't entirely certain that would benefit Australian players in the sector. The slump in LNG prices has an upside Against the backdrop of a price slump, supply glut and slowing demand, industry players at the industry conference in Perth have cited the high cost of business in Australia as a further drag, particularly as North American shale gas is rising as a serious competitor to LNG. "The question going forward as this tranche of supply comes to the market is where the next tranche of supply going to come from," said energy giant Chevron's Chief Executive John Watson. Nikkiso Cryo pumps are installed around the world and throughout the LNG chain. We offer a full range of pumps for most liquefied gases.

Coal Seam Gas "The Project"
Charlie Pickering pulls apart Coal Seam Gas on the The Project. "Our industry is one of the most highly regulated in Australia, with strict rules in place governing how we operate." -- Jim Knudsen, Senior Vice President QGC PTY Limited Gasileaks was born out of inadequate/questionable government regulation of the coal seam gas industry. Through investigations Gasileaks have carried out legislation changes have implemented and government forced to act instead of standing idle. Don't forget "If you see something say something" Over the past 5 years Australia has seen a substantial increase in the production of coal seam gas Australia wide State and Federal governments have failed the people of Australia by rushing approvals for large scale coal seam gas operations throughout Queensland. . The potential for completely destroying aquifers, river systems and the best of Australia's food bowl is becoming a reality. Beyond the watch of the government and the industry, it is imperative that both CSG employees and the general public begin taking an active role in monitoring coal seam gas and shale operations. The aim of Gasileaks is to hold both government and industry accountable for actions that threaten the well being of communities. Gasileaks thanks you for subscribing to our YouTube channel, we are currently uploading educational and current affair video clips however new investigation clips are on the way.

Light Your Water On Fire from Gas Drilling, Fracking
A video by Scott Cannon DEP consent order proving methane migration: http://imgur.com/OWUXAYN http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL062539BFB8A2B2D4&feature=view_all Please read this before saying methane migration doesn't exist. It's a proven fact: http://thetimes-tribune.com/news/sunday-times-review-of-dep-drilling-records-reveals-water-damage-murky-testing-methods-1.1491547 The Promised Land in real life. Matt Damon John Krasinski People can light their taps on fire because of gas drilling. This is one of those cases. In fact, one of the companies that produced Truthland, Chesapeake Energy, was responsible for this mess. A snippet from the Marcellus Shale Reality Tour video Sherry Vargson gave the group a tour of her farm in Granville Township, where Chesapeake Energy has drilled one well and installed compressor and metering stations and a gathering pipeline. She said her water became contaminated with methane after maintenance activities at the site in June 2010, and lit water from her tap alight for a trip attendees and the media. The little bus wound its way over green mountains, alongside undeveloped stretches of the meandering Susquehanna River and through some of Pennsylvania's most pristine wilderness. The man inside with the microphone, the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition's Scott Cannon, said there's trouble in paradise as he pointed out the changes Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling has brought to Pennsylvania's Northern Tier. Here was a drilling rig, there a water withdrawal site and every so often yet another pipeline was laid out in preparation for burial. The sights were part of the coalition's "Marcellus Shale Reality Tour," held Sunday for area legislators, municipal representatives and candidates for political office. "We still have to deal with pipelines, compressor stations; they wanted to put a frack water treatment facility in Hanover Township -- that was an hour away from the nearest drill site," Cannon said. About 15 people attended the tour, including candidate for U.S. representative Bill Vinsko, Wilkes-Barre Administrative Coordinator Drew McLaughlin and Luzerne County Council candidates Kathleen Dobash, Salvatore Licata, Eileen Sorokas and Michelle Bednar. "It's all about information," Sorokas said. "You can't beat going firsthand and seeing it. I've heard so many things about it; I want to clarify it in my mind." "It's important to learn about all sides of this important issue," said Vinsko, a Democrat who plans to a 2012 challenge to Republican Lou Barletta in Pennsylvania's 11th Congressional District. "In order to make informed decisions, I wanted to hear from the landowners on both sides of the issue. I also plan to meet with the gas companies to get all sides of the story, but this is an important first step." At least one trip participant had already made up his mind about the issue. Throop Borough Council President Tommy Lukasewicz said he has been fighting against the efforts of Keystone Sanitary Landfill to increase its daily intake by 2,500 tons, which would allow it to accept more solid waste from the gas drilling industry. "I agree more than anyone here probably that this is the worst thing that could happen to Northeastern Pennsylvania," he said, adding that he believes gas drilling could reverse the progress the area has made in erasing the scars left 50 years ago by coal mining. Lukasewicz, who attended Mansfield University and often drove through Bradford County to get there, said he "wanted to see firsthand what an area (he) had known about looks like now."

Lock The Gate - the coal seam gas mining situation in Queensland
'Lock the Gate' was inspired by the film Gaslands, which addresses the issues surrounding coal gas mining in America. 'Lock the Gate' is a brief look at part of the Queensland (Australia) situation - centered around Kingaroy, Dalby and Tara. Ian & Arkin Mackay hit the road for a three day drive to check it out... what unfolded was the realisation that coal gas mining is alive and thriving in the state... and so is an active protest movement. Veteran activist and environmental rights crusader, Drew Hutton has predicted that stopping Coal Gas mining will be "the biggest environmental campaign in Australian history"... and all indicators are that he's correct!

Sacrifice Zone: the story of a real Australian gas crisis
The backyard of New South Wales is facing its biggest threat yet – invasive gasfields. Betrayal by governments has meant protectors are fighting to save the things they love. The Pilliga, Great Artesian Basin, Liverpool Plains – all are at risk. This is a David and Goliath battle to save our land, air and water from destruction. It’s also a fight for the soul and future of Australia. In this film we meet the experts and people living in the sacrifice zone and uncover the truth behind the real gas crisis confronting ordinary Australians. PRAISE FOR SACRIFICE ZONE: Sharyn Munro (author, 'Rich Land, Wasteland'): 'Moving and powerful – credible local voices making undeniable sense.' Tina Louise Rothery (UK gas activist): 'Bentley gave us hope we could fight, this gives us no option but to fight.' Jack Mundey (legendary unionist & environmental activist): 'Marvellous film. I couldn't agree more with the action being taken to expose and fight against the undoubted damage to precious water resources if this mining is allowed to proceed.' Bill McKibben (author, co-founder of 350.org): 'Gas is a huge threat to the planet's climate, and hence this film is a great help in the biggest battle the planet faces.' Julie Lyford (Groundswell Gloucester): 'Brilliant – moving and powerful. Send it to all the pollies, media, overseas fracking communities fighting back. Excellent!' Dr Geralyn McCarron (Brisbane G.P.): 'This film taps into a significant and compelling knowledge base and provides a picture of the powerful resistance to the unconventional gas industry in Australia.' Shay Dougall (Hopeland farmer, Human Rights Tribunal Into Unconventional Gas): ' It is magnificent. It is going to be a game-changer. It left me with a will to keep fighting, not feeling so alone and wishing I lived in NSW. Proud to be an Aussie.' Margaret Fleck (Liverpool Plains farmer): 'Brilliant work.' Michele Cullen (Australian gas activist): 'Wonderful. Brought a tear to my eye.' Jo Evans (artist/activist): 'It's brilliant, perfect balance. If I was Santos I'd be very very worried.' Margie Heggie (retired health worker): 'Just watched. In tears. On every level, CSG mining fails to deliver. Why is it that the majority of our leaders refuse to see what is right there in front of them? I despair, but people are starting to listen.' Katherine Marchment (NT gas activist): 'Brilliant brilliant brilliant.' Charlotte Samiec (Chuffed supporter): 'Very much appreciated being able to see this film. Thanks to all the makers and participants. I hope it reaches a huge audience and contributes significantly to the end of CSG mining in Australia for good.' Rob Hirst (Midnight Oil, Backsliders): 'Inspiring and tragic, compelling and utterly convincing. NSW and Queensland's unfolding coal seam gas catastrophe, and the grave danger to the priceless Great Artesian Basin, described in passionate terms by a diverse cast of farmers, firies, boffins, greenies, pollies and First Nations elders. An urgent call-to-arms to save the quality of our water, air and soil, and our international reputation for pristine food production, on some of Australia's finest agricultural land.' Meg Nielsen (farmer, Bentley Gatekeepers): 'This film will be tremendously inspiring to farmers and farming communities all around the world – to empower them and give them confidence to stand up.' Sarah Moles (QLD activist): 'What an inspiring, moving film.' Luke O'Shea (multiple Golden Guitar winner): 'Who are you willing to sacrifice? Australia is at war! The enemy is apathy, short-sightedness, greed and corruption – on an enormous scale – and they are rapidly advancing on many fronts, through many communities. Will you answer the call of your fellow countrymen as they put their lives and livelihoods on the line for the future of YOUR children! Be inspired by these remarkable everyday people featured in this incredible documentary and learn just how powerful 'YOU' can be! YOUR VOICE – YOUR vote – YOUR support – can win this war! HEAR THE CALL!' Angie Gittus (nurse/activist): 'Made me cry – always does seeing our communities fight so freaking hard, against the odds, to protect our planet and our future.' Jill Lyons (local government rep): 'Thank you for an inspiring film, so many amazing reasons why we have to do everything to protect our land, air and all waterways, both above and below.' Judi Summers (Knitting Nannas Against Gas): 'So happy that this incredible film is now online, and free for all to see. Brilliant.' Dr Cynthia D. Moe-Lobeda (Professor of Theological and Social Ethics, USA). 'Breath-taking! "Sacrifice Zone" is a brilliant testimony to hope and moral power for resisting the formidable fossil fuel industry and the danger it poses to life on Earth.

Ichthys LNG Project Overview - Western Australia
http://www.jobcontax.com The Ichthys LNG Project will have an initial capacity to produce 8.4 million tonnes of LNG per annum and approximately 1.6 million tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) per annum, as well as 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak over an operational life of 40 years. Gas from the Ichthys Field will undergo preliminary processing at the offshore central processing facility (CPF) to remove water and raw liquids, including a large proportion of the condensate. This condensate will be pumped to a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facility anchored nearby, from which it will be transferred to tankers for delivery to markets. The gas will be transported from the CPF through a subsea pipeline more than 885 kilometres to the onshore LNG processing plant proposed for Blaydin Point on Middle Arm Peninsula, Darwin, Northern Territory. It will be cooled to below minus 161 degrees Celsius, the point at which the gas becomes a liquid, known as liquefied natural gas.

What are the risks of coal seam gas?
From Sydney's water supply catchment to the rich agricultural lands of the Liverpool Plains and the Darling Downs, the coal seam gas industry is expanding at breakneck speed. People's health is under threat, our nation's farmland being eroded away and the country's precious aquifers permanently damaged. Locals like Leslie McQueen, James Bishop, Lee McNicholl, Tony Pickard, Rosemary Nankivell, Katie and Scott Lloyd are doing everything they can to spread the word about the dangers of coal seam gas (CSG) mining. Debbi Orr, a GetUp member from Tara QLD, even drove 5 hours down to NSW to tell a community meeting what coal seam gas is doing to her kids' health.

Liquified Natural Gas Jobs For Gladstone
Jobs For Gladstone Queensland. Bechtel Liquefied Natural Gas Plant. The first consignment of Queensland liquefied natural gas (LNG) has left the port of Gladstone without a single Australian crew member showing a lack of commitment to local jobs by multi-billion dollar gas companies. Maritime Union of Australia Assistant National Secretary Warren Smith said it was an insult to out-of-work Australians that no local seafarers, officers, or engineers are engaged on the Methane Rita Andrea gas tanker, chartered by BG Group. “Company projections show there is a potential for 250 jobs on BG vessels shipping out of Gladstone alone,” Smith said. “There’s another 600 up for grabs once the other production facilities come online. “These are good, skilled, long-term job opportunities for the people of Gladstone, in contrast to the boom-bust, temporary jobs that were on offer during the construction phase of Curtis Island. “Japanese-owned gas tankers plying the North West shelf trade have long-held local content agreements that have been of mutual benefit to Australian workers and the company. “I would like for BG Group to offer something similar to the people of Queensland in return for profiting off the back of the resources all Australians own.” Local Organiser Jason Miners said the Gladstone community was worried about future employment once the construction boom came to an end. “I have spoken to a wide cross-section of the community, including local Government, local business and the Aboriginal community and members from each of the groups have raised concerns about the creeping unemployment rate,” Miners said. “A potential 800 direct jobs could mitigate a future job and economic crisis as well as provide training opportunities for the region’s young people.” Produced by Jamie McMechan & Ashleigh Telford - Maritime Union of Australia.

BHP Billiton Sells Stake in Australian Project To PetroChina
BHP Billiton (NYSE:BHP) striking a deal with PetroChina over a natural gas project in Australia. The energy and mining company agreed to sell a minority stake in the project for $1.63 billion after it deemed the site a "non-strategic asset." This was due to the estimated $30 billion it would cost to build infrastructure. But PetroChina is willing to foot the bill during a time where energy companies in China are vying for foreign oil and gas supplies to meet rising demand. The sale remains in the hands of join venture partners though who, as of right now, are choosing to not exercise rights to match the offer from PetroChina.

Sharing our culture at Petroleum Australia
Sometimes it can be a little hard to explain what it’s like to work offshore on an FPSO – where the only way in is by helicopter, at a gas plant, or as an engineer trying to make the next big oil or gas discovery. The BHP Petroleum Australia team has created a short film to share their unique workplace – spread right across Australia – with their families and friends, so they can learn a little bit about what it’s like to work away from home, for BHP Petroleum Australia. We invite you to watch this film too and learn a little bit about the value we place on culture at BHP, and the terrific team we have working for us. You’ll see members of our team talking about their roles right from the start of the value-chain … in Exploration … through to Subsurface … to Production at our operations … Marketing … and the support functions in between. Thank you to everyone who participated in the making of this film – whether it was getting the film crew offshore, or taking a starring role and sharing your time and your perspectives. Please enjoy.
