Costly LNG export work around = Methanol for exports to China


Pic came from Fail of the Day Bakken Shale where sub zero temps made a newbie on the padsite think he was smart to keep the (flammable) methanol warm by the engines…Methanol is injected into the production stream as an anti freeze..dah

Sept 24 2014 UPDATE another work around exporting US fossil fuels extracted from the Eagleford shale’s condensate production is from a fracking funded study…”However, because of the recent increase in condensate production in the Eagle
Ford, some companies have begun processing ultralight crude oil using splitters, which are less expensive than distillation
towers in a refinery. Splitters process condensate into naphtha and distillates that can be exported without restriction.”


Aug 7 2014 UPDATE click here for the “US Shale Spurs Record Investment” article that confirms whats going on.




Two Methanol plants are being planned in Louisiana of which one is owned by a Chinese company that will use the Methanol to…well…make plastics (that we can buy back from them).

The other company wants to keep our minerals here (so they say on their website). They say that Methanol is useful to make things like…Formaldehyde (that we don’t test for in our water supplies)….yuk.

Bottom line…the trick is to create more NG demand here in the US so we can keeping fracking in our back yards (and drive up the price for NG) instead of  waiting for the approved LNG permits and avoid having the extreme costs of building the LNG export facilities.

So the work around is to indirectly put Natural Gas to work here (in St James Parish) to make more poisons and to also ship it overseas (weakening our national security because fossil fuels are a finite souce and heaven forbid we get on ‘do-able renewables’)…..

Can you say “bye bye to a livable planet earth”?


About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
