Work completed in July 2019

This is a brief list of some of the work completed for various clients in a variety of formats, during the past month. In July I covered a wide range of topics including developments in the oil and gas business, maritime sector including use of hydrojets, global environment, power generation including renewables, the application of industrial internet of things, constuction challenges and bunkering logistics. In addition, I visited and reviewed the current exhibition at Oxford’s Ashmoleum Museum. Plus produced a briefing on Italian utility Enel. Contact me to find out more info@nicnewmaoxford.com

Natural gas a future energy key role player

Owing to a combination of legal and policy restraints, as well as vociferous environmental objections, it is becoming increasingly difficult to gain approval from both federal and state bodies for new gas pipeline construction. For example, California, Washington and New England have proactive energy and environmental policies to encourage renewables, energy efficiency and energy storage, all at the expense of fossil fuels including natural gas generation.
