About 156,907 b/d (9.23%) of oil production and 232 MMcf/d (9.06%) of natural gas output had been shut in by midday Tuesday in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico (GOM) as operators prepared to face Tropical Storm Gordon, a likely Category 1 hurricane before it was to make landfall by Tuesday night.
A coalition of organizations on Thursday delivered a letter to the New York Department of Environmental Conservation Commission (DECC), calling on the agency to undertake an environmental review of “any” applications for shale gas exploration using liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in hydraulic fracturing (fracking) stimulation processes — the precise process to be used to develop an unconventional leasehold in Tioga County.

Nova Scotia’s Energy Minister Gordon Balser officially launched the province’s new Department of Energy Tuesday, and told a business audience in Halifax that the blueprint for the department will be its independent energy strategy, unveiled last December, which will set the tone for how much the oil and gas industry, coupled with eventual electricity deregulation, will grow in the frontier territory (see Daily GPI, Dec. 13, 2001).
Pacific Gas and Electric Co. CEO Gordon Smith told analysts last Thursday that the PG&E Corp. utility subsidiary is unlikely to reach some type of settlement agreement with regulators similar to the one regulators reached with Southern California Edison.
