The Shale Gas News, typically, is broadcast live. On the January 8th show (click above), we covered the following new natural gas territory (see news excerpts below):
- Omicron Blurs Oil Outlook After Demand Roars Back. The fast-spreading Omicron variant is clouding the outlook for oil markets after a rapid recovery in demand pushed prices to their highest levels in years. Oil marched higher for much of 2021. Demand lifted as economies revved up, while producers in the Middle East and elsewhere kept millions of barrels of crude each day in the ground. Brent-crude prices, the global benchmark, climbed over 50% to $77.78 a barrel.
- Courts may overhaul energy law in 2022. Here’s how. After a year of high-profile energy project cancellations, federal courts in 2022 are expected to speak on the role of climate in oil, gas and power rules. In February, the nation’s highest bench will consider the scope of EPA’s authority to regulate carbon emissions from power plants. In the lower courts, judges will consider whether the Interior Department can suspend new oil and gas leasing on federal lands and how the federal government can incorporate emissions cost estimates into regulatory decision making.
- Daniel Yergin: Shale ‘revolution’ to challenge Saudis, Russia on oil. The “second shale revolution” in the U.S. will change the current picture of the world oil market, whose sole determinant is OPEC+, led by Saudi Arabia and Russia, energy expert Daniel Yergin says. Yergin, the vice chairman of IHS Markit, said in a recent written interview that the U.S. shale industry is experiencing a new revolution in which companies focus on “capital discipline,” staying within cash flows and returning money to investors.
- What’s ahead for ‘Build Back Better’: 4 scenarios. Congress returns this week with President Biden’s social spending and climate package hanging by a thread after Sen. Joe Manchin threw the effort into chaos last month. How the Senate responds to the West Virginia Democrat’s blockade will be the question of the year as more than $1.7 trillion — including a record $555 billion for climate-inspired initiatives — hangs in the balance.
- U.S. energy firms add oil, gas rigs for record 17th month in a row- Baker Hughes. U.S. energy firms added oil and natural gas rigs for a record 17 months in a row as higher prices lured some drillers back to the wellpad after last year’s coronavirus-driven decline in demand. The oil and gas rig count, an early indicator of future output, was unchanged at 586 in the week to Dec. 31, energy services firm Baker Hughes Co said in its closely followed report on Friday.
- Russian gas flows via Yamal pipeline flow east for 14th day. The Yamal-Europe pipeline which usually sends Russian gas west into Europe was flowing east from Germany to Poland on Sunday for a 14th straight day, data from German network operator Gascade showed.
- Europe Plans to Say Nuclear Power and Natural Gas Are Green Investments. The European Union has drawn up plans to classify some nuclear power and natural gas plants as green investments that can help Europe cut planet-warming emissions, a landmark proposal that, if approved, could set off a resurgence of nuclear energy on the continent in the coming decades.
