Midstream Money: In the Pipeline
Colorado’s drillable land mass is shrinking. DAPL’s in court again. On the natgas front, Appalachia’s daily outbound is estimated to be able to grow by only another 2 Bcf. That leaves all other oil and natgas producers—and their shippers’ financiers—to pick up the slack.

Permian & South Texas Gas Abroad: Mexico & LNG
The U.S. is exporting some 20 Bcf/d of natgas—a figure that grew in 2020 while oil demand declined. Of exports, roughly half is exiting to Mexico and Texas’ Gulf Coast LNG terminals. Here’s the outlook for yet more demand to come.

The Texas Winter-Gas Debacle
It was a nationwide spectacle and even drew international attention—and it was deadly: Texas didn’t have enough natgas in mid-February. ERCOT didn’t know gas producers and shippers need electricity; ERCOT had shut them down. A veteran gas analyst explains here.
