Here are the Top Dozen Oil & Gas stories for May 12, 2017, taken directly from the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed:

This piece claims natural gas prices are going to go “a lot higher” in the near future, but you shouldn’t get excited about that prospect.  The price probably will rise in the near future, but not “a lot”.  Why?  Because as soon as the price gets above $3.50/mcf, you’re going to see the industry activate a bunch of new drilling rigs and drill itself back down to a lower price.  Our country is simply awash in natural gas reserves, reserves so enormous that it’s hard to wrap your mind around just how much gas there really is.  There is too much excess production capacity available for the price to rise by “a lot.”  Sorry, that’s just the reality of the situation.:   3 Reasons Natural Gas Is Heading A Lot Higher  #oilprice
