受空前的北极寒潮影响,美国大部分地区气温骤降,并使能源市场陷入混乱。周一德州电网的批发电价飙升了逾10000%,德州多家炼油产关闭。德州数百万家庭十年以来首次被迫轮流停电。

The US state of Texas was severely affected by the winter storm that started over the weekend.The temperature throughout Texas is currently below 0 degrees Celsius, the temperature in Brownsville in the south is -3.9 degrees Celsius, and the temperature in Panhandle is as low as -26 degrees Celsius.Most areas of eastern Texas, including Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Houston, Corpus Christi and Brownsville, are still under the influence of winter storms.The travel conditions in the above areas are very dangerous or have reached a state of almost impossible travel.

“每一家电网运营商和每一家电力公司目前都在努力恢复供电,”负责德州电网运营的德州电力可靠性委员会负责人Bill
Magness表示。

得克萨斯州电网运营商网站上的数据显示,由于冬季恶劣天气和电力生产商轮流停电,周一德州电网的批发电价飙升了逾10000%。

由得克萨斯州电力可靠性委员会(ERCOT)运营的电网上的实时批发市场价格已攀升至每兆瓦9000美元。而平时为得州提供大部分电力的电网价格是每兆瓦不到100美元。

这一飙升反映了电力的实时价格以及电网不同点的拥堵和损失成本。周一早些时候,ERCOT表示,极端天气条件迫使许多发电机组脱离电网,扰乱了电力供应。

目前,达拉斯、休斯顿等城市大面积轮流停电,每次一小时(部分情况下停电时间更长),取暖需求激增将电网逼向极限。电网运营商周一召开发布会表示,停电预计将持续到周二早些时候。

美国休斯顿市长表示,休斯敦一些紧急避难所已经断电。预计停电将在未来几个小时内增加。所有进出休斯顿的航班均已暂停。

此外,严寒天气也导致德州多家炼油产关闭。

North America’s largest oil refinery, Motiva Enterprises, said it will close its Port Arthur oil refinery in Texas due to severe cold weather.

Chevron Phillips Chemical Company reported that due to severe cold weather at the Pasadena, Texas plant, the company will prepare to shut down equipment.Onkyo also stated that the crude oil pipeline of Line 59 was closed after a power outage.ExxonMobil closes its Beaumont refinery in Texas.

美国总统拜登(Joe Biden)已经于周日签署了德克萨斯州的紧急灾难命令。

白宫在声明中表示:“总统的行动授权联邦紧急事务管理局国土安全部协调所有旨在减轻紧急情况给当地居民带来的苦难和苦难的救灾工作,并为灾民提供适当的援助。”

 

The governor of Texas promises to restore electricity as soon as possible

休斯敦2月15日电(记者高路)美国得克萨斯州州长格雷格·阿伯特15日说,电力部门正在加紧维修,尽最大努力尽快恢复供电。

阿伯特在一份声明中说;“受极端天气及冰点温度影响,得州全境许多使用煤炭、天然气或风力发电的电厂都无法正常运转。”

受极地寒流影响,得克萨斯州部分地区14日夜间开始遭遇降雪、冰凌、冻雨等,造成路面结冰、道路被封以及大面积停电。据监测全美电力供应的网站显示,得州全境15日早晨共有近250万用户断电。得州电力可靠性委员会15日宣布该州进入“电力紧急状态三级警报”,各地区轮流拉闸限电。

阿伯特15日下午在社交媒体上发布消息说,得州一些用户的电力供应正在恢复中。除加紧抢修电网外,他还表示,得州已经尽可能派出人手,帮助地方政府清理结冰道路、协助有需要者前往全州135家御寒中心。

根据美国国家气象局发布的“冬季风暴警报”,休斯敦16日清晨可能迎来122年来的2月最低气温。此外,17日后得州还将迎来一次冬季风暴,寒冷天气和道路结冰状况将持续数日。
