The matrix of the world's energy supplies, distribution channels, usage patterns and pricing mechanisms has never been as complex as it is today. One person or group can have a massive impact on the price of oil or gas by the simple turn of a valve, in a remote area thousands of miles away from the intended destination. The power of these seven is measured not just in petro-dollars, but in the ability to change--for better or worse--the fundamental nature of the energy supply… Continue

What a couple of weeks it’s been and I have lots to report and something very important to ask.
There’s a new Natural Gas Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives which is headed by Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) and Rep. Dan Boren (D-OK). The more than 40 bi-partisan members of the caucus held a major hearing on Capitol Hill. The Natural Gas Caucus talked about how the development of America’s natural gas resources will help set America on a path to energy independence… Continue

T. Boone Pickens had an op-ed essay in the Indianapolis Star which reminded Hoosiers that, although high oil prices have dropped off their radar screen “the total amount of U.S. dollars we ship overseas to fund our oil imports is still staggering.”
If oil stays at the OPEC target of $75 a barrel, we will export nearly $300 billion — a third of $1 trillion that could, and should, be cycling through the American economy instead of the economies of the Middle… Continue

Harry Reid's Clean Energy Summit – Huffington Post – 8/10/09
By T. Boone Pickens
I get a lot of invitations to events and activities, and the truth is I have to decline a good number of them. But last year when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid asked me to attend the National Clean Energy Summit at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, I didn't have to think twice. I said "Yes" in a heartbeat.
Harry Reid has never shunned hard work. He may be Majority Leader of… Continue

T. Boone Pickens is a bit ornery these days. Not that this isn't his normal disposition. The legendary oilman didn't build a net worth of $3 billion and become one of the most ruthless corporate raiders of the 1980s by being agreeable. But Pickens's recent consternation is understandably a little more intense than usual. A year after he unveiled his $10 billion bid to save America by planting wind turbines up and down the Midwest,… Continue

Natural gas is the Rodney Dangerfield of transportation fuels. It's cheap. It's clean. But consumers don't have much of a chance to use it it because there's only model of natural gas car for sale.
Billionaire investor T. Boone Pickens has been beating the drum the loudest lately about the merits of natural gas as a clean(er) fuel that can also make the U.S. more energy independent. His argument was bolstered this week by the discovery that… Continue
