Oil and gas play a critical role in the global energy and transportation sectors. The industry is typically classified in three sectors: upstream, midstream and downstream. Find out more about USEA's work with our members and partners here.
Zagreb, Croatia— The U.S. Energy Association, through a United States Agency for International Development (USAID) supported project, has structured a landmark agreement among 7 transmission system operators (TSOs) in 7 countries in Southeast Europe to work together on planning, expanding and potentially interconnecting natural gas pipeline infrastructure.
The countries will sign a Memorandum of Understanding on May 16 in Zagreb under which they agree to develop network planning models, share pipeline network data, equipment information and other technical details.
The United States Department of Energy (USDOE), funded by Power Africa, collaborated with the United States Energy Association (USEA) to convene a group of natural gas experts to write a handbook on natural gas and LNG project development for African countries. Under the guidance of the USDOE and USEA, the participants spent five intensive days collaborating using the Book Sprint method to complete an LNG handbook. Their commitment and consistent participation was essential to the success of the “Understanding Natural Gas and LNG Options” handbook.
"The most significant US energy policy update in a decade, the Energy Policy Modernization Act 2016, will be introduced into the new Congress in January 2017. With provisions for accelerated permitting for oil and gas drilling, construction of export LNG terminals, as well as energy efficiency standards and grid-integration of renewables, the outlook for US energy security is bright, according to Barry Worthington, Executive Director of the US Energy Association (USEA). He predicts that business, not policy, will be the major driver of decarbonisation."
The Women in Energy series is a joint project between USEA and USAID that was developed out of USEA’s Engendering Utilities Partnership, a program funded by USAID to improve gender policies and gender outcomes at their respective organizations.
