        U.S. Plans to Export Natural Gas to Mexico

        Mexico has access to a lot of natural gas. Eagle Ford, located in Texas, is one of the largest shale plays in the U.S. and it doesn’t just stop at the border. It starts in Texas, on the Southeast side between Austin and Houston, and continues across the Mexican Border. There, the shale play extends into Northern Mexico’s Burgos Basin where it is known as the Boquillas Formation. But there’s a problem. Mexico can’t extract any of its natural gas.     The Boquillas Formation has c ...

        PG&E Fined for Deadly Gas Explosion

        On September 9, 2010 there was a massive gas explosion in San Bruno, California. It did a lot of damage. The blast destroyed dozens of homes, injured 66 people, and killed 8 people. The cause of the gas explosion was poorly maintained pipelines which had faulty welding work that dated back to 1950. PG&E owns those pipelines. “PG&E did not have adequate records of the pipelines that they placed underground over 50 years ago,” said Sue Bullis, one of the injured victims. A decision too ...

        Increased Natural Gas Flows to the Midwest from the Northeast

          Traditionally, natural gas flows into the Midwest region from various supply sources.  The Midwest receives gas from Canada, the Rockies, the Mid-Continent, the Southeast, and most recently the Northeast region of the US. The Midwest is a major natural gas trading hub.  About 13 Bcf/d of natural gas is delivered into the Midwest via various pipelines from the sources listed above.  Only about 1 Bcf/d is consumed from local production. In addition to the deliveries into t ...
