Asia is easily the world’s most vital incremental gas demand market. And U.S. LNG is highly desirable in the region.
By exporting more oil and natural gas, the U.S. has a very unique opportunity to buffer the rising influence of Russia.
The global LNG market is perhaps the fastest growing major energy market in the world. It’s constant rise stems from a constantly globalizing world and the increasing desire to use natural gas to lower greenhouse gas emissions and support intermittent …
A variety of factors are increasingly critical to today’s and tomorrow’s oil market. Let me illustrate just a few.
Natural gas is the fastest growing major fuel in both the U.S. and the world. Becoming more aware of the factors that can increase prices is a continual must.
Make no mistake: some huge gas pipeline projects are coming to the critical Northeast to help production, but to also increase gas-on-gas competition.
Mexico’s oil sector has been in decline since giant oil field Cantarell peaked in 2004. But, make no mistake, the historic 2013 Energy Reforms will help re-install Mexico as one of the world’s leading producers.
Although competitors, Australia and the U.S. have very different gas markets, and the latter is unlikely to face the LNG problems faced by the former.
California Governor Jerry Brown should know that its oil and natural gas that power his state.
The world’s most basic energy fact is a simple one: global oil demand will continue to increase.
Potential long-term U.S. LNG supply contracts with China could help reduce pollution and make natural gas the world’s most important fuel in a carbon constrained world.
The U.S. oil export boom is of historical significance and will continually change the global oil market. It could be the basis of a growing energy relationship with China, for instance, that would give both countries leverage over Russia, Iran, and so…
Oil and natural gas account for about 65% of total U.S. energy demand, and it’s always worthwhile to see some new charts on the market conditions of these two critical energy sources.
Coal, oil, and natural gas will remain critical energy sources for decades to come, so the risk that more investments in them will become stranded isn’t practical.
More exports amid flat production are the bullish factors for natural gas, but know that even a rise to $4 is still low historically.
Not only has Pennsylvania surged its own natural gas production, but the state has really been the driving force behind a national “dash to gas.” And there’s so much more to come for the Keystone State.
There are logical reasons why California might not be the clean energy leader some claim that it is.
The U.S. splash into the global LNG game is a game-changer, and although we face heavy competition, a tightening of global supplies in the early-2020s will open the door for us even more.
Mexico importing increasingly huge amounts of piped U.S. natural gas is a well covered story, but Mexico has also been taking in U.S. LNG due to pipeline constraints from an underdeveloped gas system in the country.
As we move out of the heating season, a quick update on the fundamentals and pricing side of natural gas is in order.
Once the darling of the U.S. natural gas business, the legendary Haynesville shale play is awakening once again.
The ability of the U.S. to export oil and natural gas is growing. We are getting critical help from outside buyers, and Mexico is at the forefront.
Nearly reaching three months into 2017, let’s look into how EIA projections have changed for this year and next in the world of oil and natural gas.
A warm winter has sunken U.S. natural gas prices, but domestic demand is expected to continually increase, with production catching up.
After falling in 2016, U.S. crude production should increase this year, helped along by production cuts elsewhere and higher prices.
The U.S. is becoming an oil and gas exporting powerhouse, helping to alleviate energy deprivation around the world and lower Russia’s gaining influence.
During this warm winter, natural gas prices have tanked. But, key demand markets are laying the foundation for higher prices, eventually. The U.S., for instance, is now exporting LNG to 20 countries.
The Permian basin in west Texas is the world’s second largest oilfield, with so much more to come!
The Navajo Generating Station must be kept open because it’s critical to the economic well-being of both the Navajo Nation and Hopi Tribe.
The U.S.-Mexican relationship must become stronger, and the energy market offers a great way to become more linked. Mexico is de-regulating its energy sector, with huge investment opportunities for U.S. companies.
Mexico might be our most vital partner, with rapidly emerging opportunities in the energy space in particular. Looking forward, market realities will continue to make the U.S. and Mexico more connected, not less.
Prices Isn’t this fun? The roller coaster ride continues. We’ve seen a surge up until the mid-$3.90s at the end of December, then a collapse down to a $3.10 close Monday, and now up closer up to $3.30 again. The run up for the end of the year can be attributed to […]

Happy New Year 2017! For the new year, let’s take a look at a few charts for natural gas. And why not? Gas is our fastest growing major fuel, and will be leaned on most to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also backing up intermittent wind and sola…
