The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, talked about drilling to energy security, pipeline demand, coming oil supply shortage and much more last week.
Every Saturday, Kevin Lynn of Linde Corporation and I co-host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas.
The Shale Gas News, typically, is broadcast live. On our July 2nd show (click above), we covered the following new territory (see news excerpts below):
- Dead as a Doornail: ETE Terminates Merger with Williams. Yesterday ETE said they have filed the official paperwork to dump the merger/takeover of Williams.
