The United States has 2,384 Tcf of technically recoverable natural gas, the Potential Gas Committee (PGC) and the American Gas Association (AGA) said Tuesday. That’s more reserves than the PGC has calculated in its 48-year history and beats the previous high seen in 2010 by 486 Tcf.
In an article Tuesday, the Post looked to the future with a report, “European industry flocks to U.S. to take advantage of cheaper gas,” while the Times complained Monday that the “Jobs Boom Built on Cheap Energy Has Yet to Appear.”
Facing the prospect of historically high levels of power generation retrofits and replacement, the multi-state Midwest Independent System Operator (MISO) has identified the need for closer coordination with the region’s natural gas system, an executive told a recent House Energy and Commerce subcommittee hearing.
Natural gas spot prices, which averaged $2.75/MMBtu at the Henry Hub last year and $3.33 last month, are expected to climb to an average of $3.41 this year and $3.63 in 2014, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA).
Crude oil shipments on all U.S. railroads could hit 700,000 b/d by the end of this year, up 40% from current levels, and top 1 million b/d in 18 months, said BNSF Railway Co. CEO Matthew Rose.
The country is in the midst of an “unconventional revolution in oil and gas” whose implications reach well beyond the energy industry, IHS Vice Chairman Daniel Yergin, tells the U.S. House Subcommittee on Energy and Power in pre-filed testimony to be given Tuesday.
Natural gas production in the Lower 48 states climbed 0.6%, or 0.41 Bcf/d, in November from October levels, according to the latest figures from the Energy Information Administration (EIA). Lower 48 production was 73.88 Bcf/d, a new record for the data, which EIA began reporting in January 2005.
The Energy Information Administration (EIA) expects total domestic marketed natural gas production to increase to 69.8 Bcf/d in 2013 from 69.2 Bcf/d in 2012, and to drop slightly to 69.5 Bcf/d in 2014. Growth in Lower 48 onshore production, driven largely by the Marcellus Shale and other shale plays, will continue through 2014, although it will be offset by Gulf of Mexico declines, EIA said.
