  • No Such Thing as 'Bad' Natural Gas

    RUSSIA, 2017/09/29 The Nordstream 2 pipeline makes economic sense for the EU and should not be used as a political weapon against its Russian owners, argues Handelsblatt's energy correspondent. Inquire into the evolution of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, and you’ll find something amazing: Additional than half the pipes that will pump gas from Wyborg in Russia, to Greifswald on Germany’s Baltic coast, have by presently been delivered. They are all in place, just waiting to be put in the ground. Nord Stream 2 AG, a all-owned subsidiary of Russia’s energy giant Gazprom, which has made pipeline financing deals with European energy companies Engie, OMV, Shell, Uniper and Wintershall, has by presently lined up gas contracts worth additional than €4 billion, or $4.7 billion.
  • China’s Aluminium Production Drops for Second Consecutive Month

    CHINA, 2017/09/16 In a sign that China’s aluminium juggernaut may finally be losing steam, numbers from the Middle Kingdom indicate that the country’s non-ferrous metals output reached a one-year nadir last month. Production of ten non-ferrous metals, namely copper, aluminum, lead, zinc, nickel, tin, antimony, mercury, magnesium, and titanium, dropped by 2.2 % last month to a total output of 4.42 million metric tons. Though China’s aluminium sector has churned out 22.17 million metric tons over the year’s initial eight months, good for a 6.1-% rise year-on-year, primary aluminium production fell by 3.7 % year-on-year in August. That was the second consecutive month of declines, dropping output to the lowest level it’s been since April 2016. The official data, which was released yesterday, represents the country’s lowest in general output in twelve months and is the initial year-on-year decline since December 2015.

  • Pacifica Bauxite Identifies Potential High-Grade Bauxite Outcroppings in Solomon Islands

    AUSTRALIA, 2017/09/13 Australian miner Pacific Bauxite Limited announced late last week that it has identified three pockets potentially containing high-grade bauxite ore at its South West New Georgia Bauxite Project in the Solomon Islands. The firm said that, of over two hundred samples taken on the site, over half showed soil totaling at least a forty-% concentration of alumina. According to the company’s analysis, the samples outline three distinct outcroppings of high-grade bauxite ore with alumina concentrations of between 55 % and 57 %. Though silicon dioxide levels proved to be higher than bauxite at Pacific’s Nendo Project, over one-third of the samples showed a silicon dioxide level of 16 % or less. The firm said that additional precise results will be available next the samples are tested in the laboratory.
