I was browsing through my July issue of American Gas Magazine and came across this statistic. Twenty years ago, 75 percent of federal lands were available for natural gas and oil leasing. Today, only 17 percent of those lands are available.
If you can’t find your copy, don’t forget that you can access the digital version of American Gas Magazine at aga.org
The July issue features Dave’s article on the AGA Vision 2020 Strategic Planning Initiative, a more in-depth article on the topic by Bruce Kauffmann (Bruce is going to do a post on this later so you all can chime in), a great safety article on the tools and strategies utilities are using to combat blowing gas situations, and more gas statistics. Enjoy.
