The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, talked about Panda Liberty, shale gas exports, a floating LNG facility and much more last week.
Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week, instead of a guest, we replayed MDN’s webinar with Alex Epstein titled – “The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels” – November 18, 2016.
The Shale Gas News, typically, is broadcast live. On the November 19th show (click above), we covered the following new territory (see news excerpts below):
- Panda’s 2nd Marcellus-Powered Electric Plant Goes Online in PA. Last month Panda Power Funds held the official commissioning ceremony to launch the operation of Panda Liberty, a 829-megawatt Marcellus gas-fired electric generating plant in Asylum Township, Bradford County, PA.
- USGS Wolfcamp Estimate Proves The Hits Just Keep On Coming For The Permian Basin. Even in the midst of the worst downturn in oil prices in more than 30 years, the hits just keep on rolling in for the Permian Basin.
- Contamination Blamed On Fracking Was ‘Almost Certainly’ Caused By EPA. Environmental regulators in Wyoming say water contamination previously blamed on fracking was instead “almost certainly” caused by the EPA.
- Reversing Middle East Dependence: US Begins Exports Of Shale Gas To Oil-Rich UAE And Kuwait. Here’s a crazy thought: Imagine that exports of American energy began flowing to importing countries in the Middle East, and that those countries were growing increasingly dependent on US exports.
- America’s on Track to Export a Record Volume of Shale Gas. The U.S. is set to export a record number of cargoes of shale gas this month. Nine liquefied natural gas tankers have departed or are scheduled to leave Cheniere Energy Inc.’s Sabine Pass terminal in November, already the most for any month since exports began in February, according to ship-tracking data compiled by Bloomberg and Genscape Inc.
- Petronas’ First Floating Unit Achieves First Gas. Petronas’ first floating LNG facility, PFLNG Satu achieved its first gas milestone November 14 from the Kanowit gas field, offshore Sarawak
- Microchannel gas-to-liquid plants convert stranded natural gas to marketable products. The first microchannel gas-to-liquid (GTL) plant in the United States was completed in September. The new plant, built by ENVIA Energy, is located in Oklahoma and is expected to begin converting landfill gas into liquid petroleum products later this year.
