The United States is the world’s leading producer of oil and natural gas. It has made the U.S. more energy secure, added jobs, lifted the economy and lowered energy costs for American households. The increased use of natural gas – illustrated in Alabama – is the chief reason the U.S. leads the world in reducing energy-related carbon emissions. All are byproducts of the U.S. energy revolution.

We recently talked about the essential friendship between natural gas and renewables – a point driven home today by the EIA in pointing out that monthly U.S. renewable electricity generation in 2016 has surpassed levels from previous years in every month so far this year. In March and April of this year, nonhydro renewables accounted for more than 10 percent of electricity generation in the U.S.

As the United States’ third-largest coal-producing state, Kentucky gets about 87 percent of its electricity from coal-fired generation. Yet natural gas use is growing. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, net electricity generation from natural gas has grown more than 460 percent in Kentucky since 2006. Electricity generation is now the state’s second-largest natural gas consuming sector.

Connecticut produces neither crude oil nor natural gas. It relies on intrastate pipelines to deliver natural gas, which is the leading fuel used by state residents and businesses. Sufficient pipeline capacity is the critical energy issue in Connecticut and the rest of New England, and that depends on operators having the opportunity to build new pipelines.

The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) released a new paper discussing the role of natural gas in public health throughout Turkey. The study focused on the relationship between the adoption of natural gas services and the mortality rates of adults and the elderly. Furthermore, the NBER released a study in February that focused on the relationship between the use of natural gas and infant mortality rates in Turkey.

Among the country’s top 15 states in overall energy production, Arkansas had a more than 400 percent increase in natural gas output from 2005 through 2015 – thanks to safe hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling in shale and other tight-rock formations. By itself Arkansas accounted for 3.5 percent of U.S. gas production. In a real sense, the state is a snapshot of the U.S. energy renaissance, launched by fracking.

Shale oil and natural gas will continue to be major players in the U.S. energy mix for many years to come. In its 2016 Annual Energy Outlook, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) predicts U.S. tight oil production to reach 7.08 million barrels per day and shale gas production to reach 79 billion cubic feet in 2040. In 2015, tight oil accounted for 52% of crude oil production and shale gas accounted for 50% of natural gas production. This is all possible because of technology advances and innovations in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing.

Indiana’s significant industrial sector, which manufactures steel, aluminum, chemicals and more, used more energy (1,327 trillion Btu) than the state’s residential and commercial sectors combined (972.8 trillion Btu) in 2014. The sector is the state’s largest natural gas user, consuming more gas than all other sectors combined, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
