The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, 1510 AM and Sundays on YesFM, talked about NAFTA, pipelines, new Ohio factories and much more last week.
Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week, as a guest, we had Charlie Gerow of Quantum Communications.
The Shale Gas News, typically, is broadcast live. On the October 6th show, we covered the following new territory:
- Oil and gas industry praises Trump’s new NAFTA deal. The petroleum industry on Monday urged Congress to approve the Trump administration’s renegotiated NAFTA agreement, and said the new deal promises to maintain booming exports of oil and natural gas to America’s northern and southern neighbors. “We urge Congress to approve the USMCA,” said Mike Sommers, president and CEO of the American Petroleum Institute, the largest U.S. oil and gas trade group.
- Bill allowing U.S. to sue OPEC drawing renewed interest. With oil prices hitting fresh four-year highs, long-dormant proposals to allow the United States to sue OPEC nations are getting a fresh look in Congress, though they were once considered a longshot to becoming law. A U.S. Senate subcommittee on Wednesday will hear testimony on the so-called No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act, or NOPEC, which would revoke the sovereign immunity that has long shielded OPEC members from U.S. legal action.
