Industry Briefs

For the second time in a matter of weeks, President Obama last Tuesday acknowledged that natural gas will play a critical role in the nation’s energy portfolio going forward. “We have a lot of natural gas here in this county,” he said at a town hall meeting in Annandale, VA. He acknowledged the risks associated with hydraulic fracturing (fracking) of the nation’s prolific shale natural gas supply, although he did not mention the practice by name. In late March, Obama championed natural gas as a new source of energy (see NGI, April 4). “The problem is…extracting it [shale gas] from the ground. The technologies aren’t as developed as we’d like and so there are some concerns that it might create pollution in our groundwater, for example. So we’ve got to make sure that if we’re going to do it [fracking], we do it in a way that doesn’t poison people,” Obama said.
