Engine failure could result in shutdown of US nuclear plant

A major engine failure at the United States’ nuclear power plant in New Mexico could result of shutdown of one of the country’s three reactors, the White House said Friday.

The failure of the steam turbine generator at the Vogtle plant, which supplies electricity to about 8,600 customers in the state, could shut down power to about 1.3 million homes and businesses, the New York Times reported.


Susana Martinez said in a statement that the failure was a major setback to the state’s economy and that it could have a “devastating impact on the ability of New Mexicans to pay their bills and stay safe in their homes.”

The Associated Press reported that Vogtle officials have begun an investigation and said that the state is monitoring the situation closely.

“Vogtle is a critical component of New Mexico’s power grid and its safety is our top priority,” the governor’s office said in the statement.

“We continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates when necessary.”

Vogel said it was working with the New Mexico Department of Environmental Protection to determine how the incident happened.

Alberta’s gas prices jump again, but what about other provinces?

September 19, 2021 Comments Off on Alberta’s gas prices jump again, but what about other provinces? By admin

Posted January 07, 2018 11:21:36 Alberta’s provincial gas prices were up 1.2 cents per litre for the week ending January 5, compared with a 2.5 cent increase for the same period last year, according to a report from the Alberta Energy Regulator.

The price of LNG was also up 2.7 cents per million cubic metres, up from 2.4 cents per ml in the same time period last July.

“There are a number of factors that are at play with the recent increase in gas prices,” the regulator said in a statement.

Oil prices have surged in recent months as OPEC tries to limit supply to keep oil prices down and reduce a glut that has been caused by the global glut of crude. “

However, we can conclude that the increase in LNG prices, as well as the decline in gasoline prices, are largely responsible for the increase.”

Oil prices have surged in recent months as OPEC tries to limit supply to keep oil prices down and reduce a glut that has been caused by the global glut of crude.

The world’s top producer of oil, Saudi Arabia, has been exporting some of its excess supply to international markets, such the European Union.

The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) reported that last week Canada’s LNG demand fell for the first time since June 2016.

“The oil and gas sector is experiencing a significant downturn in recent weeks due to higher prices for crude oil,” CAPP said in its quarterly report.

The Alberta government also noted that the price of crude oil rose from $US54.30 per barrel in June to $US65.55 in July.

Brent crude prices have been on a downward trend over the past few months.

They have climbed to $54.94 a barrel in July from $52.72 in June.

“This price increase reflects a significant fall in the cost of crude and other oil-based products and is likely to be reflected in higher oil prices for a number time to come,” the provincial government said.

The increase in provincial gas was also driven by the fact that the Canadian Natural Gas Association (CNGA) reported a $1.6-billion increase in net income for the quarter.

CNGA said its results were impacted by higher costs to process crude oil and other commodities used to make natural gas.

The company said its revenue rose by 5 per cent from $2.4-billion to $2-billion.

“Despite this, CNGA reported an overall decrease in net revenue of $4.1-billion,” the CNGA report said.

CNIA also reported that the company’s oil production increased from 12.8 million barrels per day in June 2016 to 14.1 million barrels a day in July, and its natural gas production increased by 5.3 per cent.

“CNIA has also seen continued increases in its oil production, particularly in the Bakken and LNG-producing regions,” CNIA said.

Alberta’s natural gas industry has also suffered from a drop in demand from overseas, which has resulted in higher prices.

The cost of producing natural gas in Alberta has increased by more than 20 per cent since the beginning of the year, but there is still a gap between supply and demand, according the Canadian Association for Petroleum Proposals (CAP).

“While the price increase for LNG has been driven by higher prices, there are significant challenges ahead in meeting demand in the gas sector,” the organization said in an e-mailed statement.

The CUPE represents the province’s more than 5,000 public sector unions.

In a statement, the union called for increased public awareness of the risks of climate change and urged the government to “address the challenges faced by the oil and natural gas sector by investing in renewable energy and climate action.”

Which engineering school pays the most?

August 27, 2021 Comments Off on Which engineering school pays the most? By admin

Top engineering schools are the only engineering schools that pay a good deal of their engineers’ salaries, according to a recent survey.

The survey by research firm Zillow found that engineering schools paid their top engineers nearly $60,000 a year on average, which is the highest salary for a non-technical position.

Zillows data is based on the annual salaries of engineering managers.

But there are other ways to determine how much an engineering school is paying its engineers.

Zills survey data also includes the salaries of engineers who work in the private sector and who have less than $100,000 in salary.

The highest salary paid to engineers in the industry was $100 million for Stanford University, followed by Cornell University, MIT and UC Berkeley.
