On Our Radar: Arctic Oil Discovery

Statoil, the Norwegian oil company, reports a second big oil discovery in the Barents Sea in less than a year, brightening Norway’s and the remote Arctic region’s petroleum prospects. [Reuters] Myanmar’s government says it will halt construction of an $8 billion coal-fired power plant at the Dawei port project, envisaged as a vast heavy industry zone, because it could have a negative environmental impact. [Associated Press] Coloradans fret that a snow drought will prove devastating not only for its ski resort sector but for water supplies, citing the minuscule size of the mountain snowpack that supplies much of the water used by Front Range cities. [The Colorado Independent] Austin Energy has opened a 30-megawatt solar plant in Webberville, Tex., the largest active solar project of any public power utility in the country. [FierceEnergy]
