EU: Fate of Nord Stream 2 linked to Russia's behavior in Ukraine

The fate of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline is linked to any potential conflict with Russia over Ukraine, the EU's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said, siding with the U.S. on the way forward. 

"Certainly, the functioning of this infrastructure will also depend on the development of the events in Ukraine and the attitude of Russia," he told reporters after a meeting of European Union defense ministers in Brest.

"You cannot imagine that we are thinking on one side of imposing sanctions (on Russia), just in case - and on the other hand to open infrastructure. It is certainly linked to the military situation in Ukraine, it's obvious." 

Should Russia de-escalate, though, the decision on opening the pipeline between Russia and Germany would be in the hands of German and European regulators, Borrell added.

Editorial Comment
-Adrienne Blume
With Henry Hub (HH) natural gas prices almost twice as high year over year, as of the time of writing in late October, and similarly record-high prices in Europe and Asia driving competition for LNG, the gas market is rife with tension.

Electric LNG (i.e., eLNG) has emerged as a powerful decarbonization pathway for LNG project stakeholders.
Maintenance and Reliability: Looking beyond processing efficiency to optimize operations
-Adam Bozick
When facility owners think about plant optimization, the emphasis often is on maximizing throughput and, in many cases, that means focusing on processing equipment.

Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants

Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
