    In New Trend, U.S. Natural Gas Exports Exceeded Imports in 3 of the First 5 Months of 2017 August 8, 2017 by U.S. EIA: Today in Energy Leave a Comment   Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Natural Gas Monthly The United States exported more natural gas than it imported in February, April, and May of 2017 according to the latest EIA’s Natural Gas Monthly. The United States has been a net natural gas importer (on an average annual basis) for nearly 60 years. Declining net pipeline imports from Canada, growing natural gas pipeline exports to Mexico, and increasing exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) are all contributing...

    Like many industries today, the oil industry is trying to sell its many job opportunities to the fastest growing portion of the global workforce: Millennials. But unlike any other industry, oil and gas is facing more challenges in persuading the environmentally-conscious Millennials that oil is cool. During the Super Bowl earlier this year, the American Petroleum Institute (API) launched an ad geared toward Millennials, who now make up the largest generation in the U.S. labor force. This aint your daddys oil, the ad says, in what API described as a modern look at how oil is integrated into products consumers...

    The Trump administration forged ahead with its commitment to boosting domestic fossil fuel production Thursday, directing more public lands to be opened for oil and gas extraction a move that could bring new drill rigs to California. The state hasnt seen new onshore oil and gas leases offered up on federal land in four years because of environmental fights. The order signed by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke on Thursday has some environmentalists fearing that de facto moratorium will soon end. At minimum, the administrations action will intensify the push by energy companies to broaden drilling across Californias prime oil...

    The shale revolution in the U.S. has led to a boom in domestic natural gas production, to the point that America is expected to become a net exporter of natural gas on an average annual basis by 2018. Abundant gas at home has also led to a renaissance in the petrochemical industry in the U.S., which had suffered a downturn in 2008 and 2009. But then came the shale revolution, and chemical companies in the U.S. now use the affordable ethanea natural gas liquid derived from shale gasas a feedstock. Abundant and cheap, shale gas and ethane are now feeding...

    Seeking to "roll out a red-carpet welcome" to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Donald Trump would host him for a working dinner at the White House on Monday, the first of its kind under this administration. "The White House is very interested in making this a special visit. We're really seeking to roll out the red carpet. In fact, the two (leaders) will have dinner, a working dinner at the White House. This will be the first dinner for a foreign dignitary at the White House under this administration. So, we think that's very significant," a senior administration official...

    One day in March, the Rioja Knutsen tanker, filled with liquefied natural gas, was travelling from the US to Portugal. Suddenly, Mexicos power company lobbed in a higher bid for its cargo. At the Bahamas, the ship abruptly made a starboard turn and headed south. How natural gas is bought and sold in the worlds scattered regional markets for the fuel is changing rapidly. Ships such as the Rioja Knutsen are stitching those regions together and a single global market is emerging. This is already how nearly every other hydrocarbon, from crude oil to obscure petrochemicals, is sold. As gas...

    Boeing is set to deliver a refueling tanker that can gas up a jet in midair in complete darkness -- the first of its kind. The U.S. Air Force is buying 179 of the new KC-46 'Pegasus' tankers, which are set to begin delivery at the end of this year. The Air Force has had stealthy jets for decades, but even they have to turn on their lights when refueling in the sky. The KC-46's ability to gas up an aircraft in complete darkness is a first for any military.

    The bulk of the decline in gasoline prices can be thanked on a recent plunge in crude oil prices as concern over weak demand and high supply has offset sentiment about last Novembers OPEC production cuts. The number of U.S. rigs drilling stands at 877, a rise of 7 in the last week, but 462 more rigs- 111% more- than a year ago. While OPEC cut oil production, U.S. and Canadian oil companies have filled the gap, leaving OPEC to lose market share. How long the charade continues is up to OPEC, who will decide in a few weeks whether...

    If there were ever a time to increase the gas tax it would be NOW! A tax bill is in the works. The Democrats want it "paid for." Oil price is way down and not likelihood of an increase soon. High tech improvements to oil discovery and production have drastically reduced oil prices. I am happy to pay more for a gas tax that would improve road and bridge infrastructure. PA increased the gas tax and nobody fussed much. A federal gas tax hike is long overdue and Democrats would vote for it!

    When the House passed the GOPs ObamaCare replacement, the AHCA last Thursday, there was no shortage of angry celebrities attacking the GOP in profanity-laced tweets, claiming the GOP will pay for it come election time. Looks like the anger has not died down in Hollywood yet. Actress and singer Bette Midler followed the rest of her ilks partisan and vile lead, tweeting that the GOP was gassing their own people by repealing ObamaCare. So the #homegrownAssads in the #FreedomCaucus want employers to not have to offer health care to employees. Like gassing their own people! Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) May...

    President Donald Trump will instruct the Interior Department to revise the Obama administration's five-year plan for developing federal waters. His executive order will tell the Commerce Department to refrain from naming or expanding marine sanctuaries and review existing ones. Trump will seek to overturn President Barack Obama's effort to indefinitely put much of U.S. Arctic waters and part of the Atlantic off limits to drillers. President Donald Trump on Friday will instruct his cabinet officials to take actions that will potentially open new areas of federally administered waters to energy development. The actions, to be spelled out in a new...

    Yesterday, Monday, I took the Boulder Daily Camera to task for an indefensible letter it published last Wednesday, April 19 that unambiguously incited violence against oil and gas workers. A day later on the 20th, without retraction or apology, the Camera had modified the letter, but grossly inadequately. The letter still plainly supported violence against person and property. A friend later alerted me that a day before, on Sunday, April 23, the Cameras editorial editor, Dave Krieger had penned a full scale mea culpa. Intrigued, I clicked to the Camera to see what this apology might say, and whether the...

    A top adviser to President Donald Trump on Thursday appeared to throw the administrations support behind a proposed controversial liquefied national gas terminal in Oregon that had been rejected by regulators during the Obama administration. The first thing were going to do is were going to permit an LNG export facility in the Northwest, said Gary Cohn, chair of the White House National Economic Council. Just think of the transport time from the Northwest to Japan versus anywhere else. Then weve got to put facilities on the East Coast to get from the East Coast to Germany. The one place...

The oil project is expected to transport more than 500,000 barrels of oil a year across the eastern section of the country. ... The Obama administration rejected the previously approved pipeline last December ... President Donald Trump eventually issued orders approving the DAPL in January ... many demonstrators have begun diverting their attention to the equally contentious Keystone XL Pipeline, another oil pipeline Trump approved through executive order. Obama originally rejected...

    The Syrian military is prepared to use chemical weapons against its own people and is awaiting final orders from President Bashar Assad, U.S. officials told NBC News on Wednesday. The military has loaded the precursor chemicals for sarin, a deadly nerve gas, into aerial bombs that could be dropped onto the Syrian people from dozens of fighter-bombers, the officials said. As recently as Tuesday, officials had said there was as yet no evidence that the process of mixing the "precursor" chemicals had begun. But Wednesday, they said their worst fears had been confirmed: The nerve agents were locked and loaded...
