Processes and compositions for scavenging hydrogen sulfide from hydrocarbon streams are disclosed that reduce, if not substantially eliminate, the formation of crystalline or amorphous solids even under cold conditions. The compositions used in the processes comprise a hexahydrotriazine component and an amphiphilic component that form a hydrophobic micelle when the hexahydrotriazine component becomes spent.


OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The April 2017 Investor Movement Index® reading fell for the first time in three months, dropping to 6.06, TD Ameritrade, Inc. (“TD Ameritrade”), a broker-dealer subsidiary of TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation (Nasdaq: AMTD) announced today. The Investor Movement Index, or the IMXSM, is a proprietary, behavior-based index created by TD Ameritrade that aggregates Main Street investor positions and activity to measure what investors are actually doing and how they are positioned in the markets. The April 2017 Investor Movement Index for the four weeks ending April 28, 2017, reveals: TD Ameritrade client exposure to equity markets decreased as there was lower relative volatility in widely held names, including Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Facebook Inc. (FB). Volatility was modest during the month, with a slight uptick in the volatility of the S&P 500 Index early in the period. Markets posted losses early in the month following poor economic data, yet rebounded at month-end following strong earnings reports. Despite the negative downtrend in April, TD Ameritrade clients were net buyers overall in April with increased interest in the tech sector and dividend stocks. “Although this is the first decline in recent months, market optimism appeared to remain strong as our clients were net buyers for the fifth month in row. We saw a similar trend a year ago, where retail clients lowered their equity exposure and the IMX broke a seven month high streak,” said Victor Jones, director of trading for TD Ameritrade. “A third of the S&P 500 will report earnings in May, so we will see how much our clients stay engaged in the markets.” TD Ameritrade clients were net buyers of dividend stocks in the April period, including AT&T Inc. (T) and Verizon (VZ), both of which traded down following their earnings reports early in the period. Clients were net buyers of Amazon Inc. (AMZN) and Facebook Inc. (FB) with both stocks reaching all-time highs during the period. Apple Inc. (AAPL) was net bought as the stock reached a 52-week high. Investors will likely keep an eye on the stock as the company is expected to release the 10th anniversary iPhone later this year. Finally, Plug Power Inc. (PLUG) was also a net buy following a deal to sell $70 million of fuel-cell forklifts to Amazon. Additional popular names bought in April included Dry Ships Inc. (DRYS) and Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.B). TD Ameritrade clients were net sellers of Consumer Goods and Service companies during the April period. Starbucks Inc. (SBUX) was net sold for a second month in a row, after an analyst upgrade pushed the stock to a 52-week high. Panera Inc. (PNRA) was also net sold after being acquired by JAB Holdings for $315 per share. Whole Foods Market Inc. (WFM), a net sold, reached a 52-week high after Jana Partners took nearly a 9% stake in the company. Finally, with plans to launch a mobile money transfer app in partnership with American Express Inc. (AXP), Walmart (WMT) stock reach a 52-week high and was net sold. Net selling activity also occurred within the Energy sector as ConocoPhillips Corp. (COP) and Kinder Morgan Inc. (KMI) were net sold. The IMX value is calculated based on a complex proprietary formula. Each month, TD Ameritrade pulls a sample from its client base of 7 million funded accounts, which includes all accounts that completed a trade in the past month. The holdings and positions of this statistically significant sample are evaluated to calculate individual scores, and the median of those scores represents the monthly IMX.

CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Environmental group Greenpeace on Thursday asked the Alberta securities regulator to halt Kinder Morgan's initial public offering (IPO) of its Canadian business until the company disclosed climate-related risks to potential investors.


LEAWOOD, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tallgrass Energy Partners, LP (NYSE:TEP) today announced that through its subsidiary Tallgrass Midstream, LLC (“TMID”) it has entered into an agreement to acquire DCP Midstream’s Douglas natural gas gathering system in the Powder River Basin for approximately $128 million. The Douglas gathering system encompasses approximately 1,500 miles of gathering lines across four counties in Wyoming and is the primary gathering system for TMID’s Douglas processing plant. The transaction is expected to close on or before the end of the second quarter. “This is a strategic acquisition that complements our existing assets in the region,” said Tallgrass Chief Commercial Officer Matt Sheehy. “The Douglas gathering system was originally designed to deliver gas to TMID’s Douglas processing facility but was sold separately 15 years ago. We view this recombination as strategically important for our processing activities in the Powder River Basin.” Tallgrass Energy Partners recently acquired a water disposal facility in the Powder River Basin, through its BNN Water Solutions subsidiary. “These two acquisitions are important components in our total basin strategy in the Powder,” Sheehy added. “The gathering system, when combined with our Casper and Douglas processing facilities, the residue lines feeding Tallgrass Interstate Gas Transmission, access to our water business services and assets and overall proximity to Pony Express, allows Tallgrass to offer a cost-effective one-stop-midstream-shop for producers in the Powder River Basin.” The transaction has been approved by appropriate governing bodies of both companies, but remains subject to satisfaction of specified closing conditions, including expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976. TEP also announced that Ron Happach has joined the company as General Manager of Tallgrass Midstream to bring a renewed emphasis on its gathering and processing activities. “Ron is an established industry leader and will bring a focused approach to our business strategy in the Powder River Basin,” said Tallgrass Chief Operating Officer Bill Moler. “Ron and I have worked together for many years throughout our careers, and I have a high degree of confidence in his ability to meaningfully grow our TMID business line.” Before joining Tallgrass, Happach was the Chief Operating Officer of Millennium Pipeline. He has a distinguished career in the oil and gas industry, having served in a variety of roles including operations and business development for Inergy, LP and Kinder Morgan, Inc. Tallgrass Energy is a family of companies that includes publicly traded partnerships Tallgrass Energy Partners, LP (NYSE: TEP) and Tallgrass Energy GP, LP (NYSE: TEGP), and privately held Tallgrass Development, LP. Operating across 10 states, Tallgrass is a growth-oriented midstream energy operator with transportation, storage, terminal and processing assets that serve some of the nation’s most prolific crude oil and natural gas basins.

Embodiments of the present invention provide systems, methods, and computer medium having computer programs to determine presence of stress corrosion cracking in one or more pipelines or portions thereof such as pipeline joints by utilizing pattern recognition in pipeline data such as magnetic flux leakage data. A screening process, for example, does not affect or change how survey data is recorded such as in survey tools; only how it is analyzed after the survey data is completed. Embodiments of the systems, methods, and computer medium having computer programs can be used to screen for potential locations of stress corrosion cracking in one or more pipelines so that site excavation can occur for confirmation and validation of the output results.


Embodiments of the present invention provide methods, machines, and a computer medium or media having computer programs to determine presence anomalies in circumferential welds of one or more pipelines transporting fluids associated with energy therethrough. Wave form analysis or pattern recognition in pipeline data such as magnetic flux leakage data is employed. A screening process, for example, does not affect or change how survey data is recorded such as in survey tools; only how it is analyzed after the survey data is completed. Embodiments of the machines, methods, and computer medium having computer programs can be used to screen for anomalies potentially threatening the structural integrity of the one or more pipelines so that site excavation can occur for confirmation and validation of the output results.
