Marcellus Holds Great Power, Great Responsibility

Will anyone be able to look back on this time in the United States and not consider it to be a golden age for natural gas? Will anyone doubt that the Marcellus Shale was the blazing star in that firmament?

Energy Patch Drives Nation-Leading GDP Growth in North Dakota

Energy Patch Drives Nation-Leading GDP Growth in North Dakota

Oil and gas patch output is typically measured in barrels or cubic feet, but gross domestic product (GDP) is another yardstick by which to chart growth, and that’s particularly true in North Dakota, home to the Bakken Shale, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said Friday.

IEA: Shales Driving U.S. to Production Growth World Leader

The International Energy Agency (IEA) said U.S. gas production could reach 797 billion cubic meters (bcm) (28.14 Tcf) by 2018, 17% higher than last year’s total of 681 bcm (24.05 Tcf), which was a 5% increase over 2011. That’s thanks to shale gas. Other countries have it, but they won’t be getting at it for some time, and that fact will keep the United States among the leading natural gas producers.
