        Mexico’s Accelerated Demand for US Natural Gas

          United States natural gas is headed south. Mexico is currently importing a record amount of natural gas in order to keep up with the growing electricity demand for its recent industrial boom. Eighty percent of Mexico’s gas imports come from the US and sixty percent of that comes directly from Texan pipelines. Over the past three years, gas exports to Mexico have nearly doubled. Over the same period, Mexican natural gas production has declined eleven percent. In order to make up the ...

      • The Fundamentals of Natural Gas Storage

        Hello everyone. Fall is here, and I hope you had a good summer. A few weeks ago, I noticed that summer took a toll on my garage. Inflatable pools, slip-n-slides, lawn chairs, and sports equipment were piled up around the cars. At the beginning of the summer it was pretty much empty, except for some necessities. I started to organize, but realized something else needed to be done. It was time for a garage sale. The clutter needed to find a new home. My family gathered and priced everything th ...

      • CSAPR, Tropical Storm Isaac, and Mitt Romney’s Energy Plan

        This week in Energy news has been more exciting than eating cotton candy at a baseball game. I’m not talking about when I was 7 and didn’t know how to eat cotton candy. Instead of picking it off piece by piece, I would just put my face in it. By the time I finished, my face could’ve been mistaken for a smurf, only stickier. No, this week was exciting because a little certainty was put into the market. The Cross State Air Pollution Rule, CSAPR, (finally) reached an outcome and a presidential ...

        The Future of Cars

        Batteries. One of my favorite inventions is the battery. Although, it usually takes some effort to correctly replace them in a TV remote. They keep us wireless.

They aren’t practical for cars. Detroit Tries to Deliver More NGVs The Big Three Auto companies met with 13 states about Natural Gas Vehicles. They ...

      • Gas Surplus in the United States

        Industry experts at the LDC Gas Forum Southeast in Atlanta stated that most increases in gas demand are not expected to occur for several years. With the mild winter and heavy production, there is no immediate way to help improve gas consumption. The CEO of the American Public Gas Association, Bert Kalisch, said that “consumers should not rejoice” in exceptionally low gas prices and declining rig counts. Gas needs to be affordable to both consumers and producers to promote industry growt ...
