We have a lot of natural gas storage in the US cycling summer to winter already.
From above “That’s just the way it is.” And it’s that way far more severely for horizontals.
On the graph, horizontals die vertically. Well known reality carefully NOT talked about by those who have to hype the drilling of the next well.
As for nat gas, the word is 40% of nat gas produced in the Bakken is flared. They are drilling so frantically and desperately fast to overcome that down escalator that they dare not pause to lay capture infrastructure.
And here is a delightful photo to prove it. See if you can find the huge city on a map making that huge swath of (gas flare) light in western NoDak on a map, or south of Austin where the Eagleford is flaring.
That’s what desperate, frantic drilling looks like, folks, and it’s not going to get any better. Ever.
