Pipelines & Processing Facilities
PetroChemical | Natural Gas | Water | Emerging Technologies
We track new pipelines and processing facility projects in the petrochemical, natural gas, water, emerging technologies industries, and major upgrade capital. These include traditional pipelines and facilities for petrochemicals as well as emerging energy sources such as renewable natural gas (RNG), hydrogen (gray, blue, and green), and carbon capture technologies. The C Three Group monitors projects both big and small. Whether the project is in early ideation from a major player or is currently underway in a small portfolio, we track it in our database.
Natural Gas Distribution Programs
We also provide comprehensive overviews of all LDC pipeline replacement and expansion programs by individual utilities–we track replacement programs by miles completed and miles remaining as well as capital budgets.
The C Three Group tracks carbon capture and storage projects (CCS) from the concept and development phase through operational completion throughout all of North America.
The Carbon Capture market continues to rapidly expand as CO2 reduction goals increase, especially as government funding and incentives provide additional support for these targets.
CCS projects are made up of many components including Pipelines, Processing Facilities, and Storage facilities. CCS involves the capturing of CO2 emissions from industrial processes. This carbon is then transported to storage facilities, where the carbon is typically stored deep underground in geological formations. It is then piped to the end users such as operations within the petrochemical industry. The C Three Group tracks all scaled projects, from a single 12” pipeline to the large separation and processing facilities.
The C Three Group tracks hydrogen projects including Gray, Blue, and Green Hydrogen. Hydrogen project tax credits will help drive many more hydrogen projects in the future–and The C Three Group will track all of them.
Gray hydrogen is derived from natural gas and fossil fuels, which makes it the least renewable form of hydrogen. Blue Hydrogen is produced using the same chemical processing technique used to make gray. The difference with blue hydrogen is that the CO2 produced does not escape into the environment. Instead, it is captured at the production facility and stored separately. Green hydrogen uses a technique that employs electrolysis—the separation of hydrogen and oxygen molecules by applying electrical energy to water. Renewable sources such as wind and solar power may generate the electricity for this process, increasing its “greenness”.
