The U.S. Department of Energy Extends Paducah Infrastructure Support Services Contract
Mar 20 15
The U.S. Department of Energy announced that it is extending its contract for Infrastructure Support Services at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant for a period of three months. The contract period for the current contractor, Swift & Staley Inc. (SSI), had been scheduled to expire on March 30, 2015. This contract extension, valued at approximately $14.5 million, is intended to accommodate DOE's current competitive procurement process for a new infrastructure contract. This action is intended to allow selection, contract award and transition to the new contract to occur without interruptions of ongoing services.
Bear Head LNG Corporation and Bear Head LNG (USA) LLC File Application with US Department of Energy for Authorisation to Export Natural Gas to Canada
Dec 10 14
Bear Head LNG Corporation and Bear Head LNG (USA) LLC have filed an application with the US Department of Energy (DOE) for authorisation to export natural gas to Canada for a 25-year period. Under the DOE application, Bear Head LNG and Bear Head USA are seeking long-term, multi-contract authorisation to export up to 503 billion standard cubic feet (BcF) per year, or 1.4 BcF per day, by pipeline to Canada. This is the first of the various applications Bear Head LNG and Bear Head USA anticipate filing with DOE to enable the export of LNG from the project to free trade agreement (FTA) and non-free trade agreement (Non-FTA) nations.
Star Minerals Group Ltd. Collaborates with US Department of Energy on Metal Extraction from Geothermal Brines
Dec 9 14
Star Minerals Group Limited announced that it has signed a multi-party agreement to participate in a research project aimed at recovering rare earth elements, precious metals and other critical materials from geothermal brines using advanced sorbent structures. The research is being managed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratories (PNNL) with the majority of project funding coming from the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). In addition to PNNL, the DOE, EERE and Star, other project participants include Barr Engineering Co. (Barr) and the University of Oregon. The objective of the program is to evaluate, develop and demonstrate flexible, scalable mineral extraction technology for geothermal brines based upon solid phase sorbent materials. Techno-economic modeling will be done to determine the conditions where the developed technology is viable. The technology will enable effective extraction of strategic/critical metals while providing an economic benefit to the geothermal operation. Metals of interest include the rare earths, in particular "heavy" rare earths, gold, silver and platinum group metals, zinc, manganese, tellurium, scandium, selenium and uranium. Star's goal is to help develop an economically viable technology that allows the company to achieve its overall corporate goal, and primary focus, of developing sources of strategic metals for downstream use in "green" energy technologies. The research program is scheduled over a 2-year period with all participants providing time and/or funding to the project. Star's contribution is USD 150,000 over the 2-year period along with consulting time. The total project budget is estimated at USD 650,000.
