U.S. utilities have withdrawn a record amount of natural gas from underground storage to meet heating and power needs during an extremely cold winter, but gas producers say they are confident they can rebuild inventory.
"We believe North America has the capacity to supply far more natural gas than we are doing now at a reasonable price," said William Maloney, Statoil's executive vice president of development and production for North America, speaking at the IHS CERAWeek conference in ...
Sunken Great Lakes oil pipeline raises spill fears
A freshwater channel that separates Michigan's upper and lower peninsulas is a premier Midwestern tourist attraction and a photographer's delight, offering spectacular vistas of two Great Lakes, several islands and one of the world's longest suspension bridges.

Review Clears Path for Seismic Tests of U.S. Atlantic Oil
Seismic measuring of oil and gas off the U.S. Atlantic coast can be done safely under certain conditions, the government said in a report that marks a critical step toward drilling in an area off limits for decades.
Measures to minimize the effects on wildlife, such as a pause in testing during whale migrations and sea turtle nestings, could make oil exploration feasible in the stretch of Atlantic Ocean that runs from Delaware to Florida, the U.S. Interior Department said today in a final ...
