Don’t block path to clean air and jobs in Maryland

Maryland’s two-year ban on hydraulic fracturing was always a mistake but the Environmental Protection Agency’s new report on the safety of the technique leaves little doubt.

EPA’s multi-year study, drawing from 950 sources of information, confirmed that fracking is being done safely and poses just a minor risk to groundwater. While some have sowed seeds of fear about fracking, and succeeded in some cases, it’s time to let facts and science direct Maryland’s energy future.

Future Of Shale Revolution Driven By Private Equity Money

by G. Allen Brooks

Falling Rig Counts But Sustained Output – Change Coming?

Like many in this industry, we spend a lot of time looking at the weekly data seeking a clue to the end of the industry’s current down-cycle and the start of the next up-cycle.  Throughout our career we have watched weekly data series become a cause célèbre for forecasters.  In the past, it might have been weekly Baker Hughes (BHI-NYSE) rig count numbers, natural gas storage injections or withdrawals, oil storage volumes, weekly gasoline production figures, gasoline pump prices, or possibly…

Does Natural Gas History = $10 A Barrel Oil In Our Future?

The news is full of claims and predictions about where crude oil prices are headed, and how soon they will get there.  Remember the admonition to economists: forecast often but only give a price with no date, or a date with no price.  As oil prices have rebounded during the past two weeks, we continue to see forecasts claiming the U.S. is headed for oil prices somewhere between $20 and $10 a barrel.  The analysis behind these forecasts relies on the recent history…

Why no activity in Lackawanna PA?

The seems to be lots of fracking going on all over PA. I sent out 100 letters to various companies and no one was interested in Lackawanna. Is there a reason for this? Stiffer regulations maybe? I'm told there is gas in the area. What makes them…Continue
