The United States is on the verge of an economic “renaissance” thanks to abundant shale gas — and that demands a smart energy policy, Dow Chemical [DOW 35.31 0.35 (+1%) ] CEO Andrew Liveris said Thursday. “The discovery of shale gas is an American manufacturing renaissance if handled well,” he said on CNBC’s “The Kudlow Report.” “It makes America a low-cost jurisdiction for any energy-intensive manufacturing of the value-add kind. One dollar of gas can create $8 to $9 of the value-add kind.”…Continue

Dr Fine writes "Nearly 40 years ago, when the first oil price shock from the Middle East and OPEC disrupted the American economy, North Carolina and Appalachia briefly became an oil and gas frontier. Following geological investigations, Chevron drilled an exploratory well in the Deep River Basin beneath Lee County, N.C. Oil was discovered at 5,000 feet, but it contained excessive paraffin and Chevron plugged the well.
Why is North Carolina not yet a site for drilling rigs, mud and…Continue

Paul Carpenter’s March 6 column (“Gas drilling symposium at NCC to challenge ‘bill of goods’ “) fundamentally disregards the overwhelmingly positive developments surrounding responsible, well-regulated natural gas production. While Mr. Carpenter cites propaganda from Rolling Stone and “Gasland” — a “documentary” that’s been thoroughly debunked by a broad spectrum of experts, including former state Department of Environmental Protection Secretary John Hanger — he fails to recognize the facts.…Continue

Just who should regulate shale gas production is seeping its way into this year’s presidential race. The White House has said that the unconventional form of natural gas is an essential “bridge fuel” that uses extraction processes that must be federally regulated.
At the core of the debate is whether the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has the authority to monitor certain aspects of shale gas production such as the disposal of waste water and the assurance of…

Jan. 18 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. is poised for a revival of domestic oil production that may mirror a surge in natural-gas output from shale formations, ConocoPhillips Chief Executive Officer Jim Mulva said.
“The revolution has spread to domestic oil production,” Mulva said in remarks prepared for a speech at Rice University in Houston today. “And it may track the path it followed with natural gas. We just don’t know…Continue

Arguably the biggest story in the United States energy scene, and de facto for the rest of the world, has been the development of shale gas. Natural gas production in the United States was flat from about 1995 to 2005, standing at about 2 Tcf per month. But over the last five years, production started going up (see graph) moving to around 2.3 Tcf per month. The entire increase is because of shale gas, contributing at least 17 percent of domestic production. This is remarkable, considering…Continue
