Dominion seeking approval of $3.8B facility in Maryland

April 8, 2013

Of course, the price is double to 4 times as high in Asia as USA.

So when NG increases in price 400% HERE, how SMART was the conversion of Coal power plants?

Kaching! Kaching! Screwed again!

i guess that we don't need it here.all this drilling was supposed to get us away from importing oil.

Similar to the tar sands of the keystone pipeline, that folks like duwhop support. It's being exported. Imagine that! Of course duwhop does know that coal exports are at an all time high. This is what people were concerned about from the beginning. Along with the Halliburton loophole and the chemicals that are used.......

It is amazing that we still import natural gas. China has huge reserves of untapped natural gas and our influence in that market will be short lived. You'll never get natural gas, or any commodity, below the production cost so NG prices will not be going down anytime soon.

As I read some of these post I am convinced that this newspaper's largest circulation must be in homes for the mentally incapacitated. I thought that perhaps the patients hadn't received their meds prior to scanning the morning paper,but reading the post late in the day show no improvement, so the meds aren't being taken, or are ineffective.

Only an idiot would have thought that the taking of our natural resources would actually have been a benefit to Americans. Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! Its all about the jobs! In the meantime they destroy our roads, water, air and prices for everything including food, fuel and taxes. It's a disaster! Look at all the trash alongside of the roads, look at damage caused by the trucks. Oh yeah, they signed agreements to fix roads when they are done and they leave the area... problem is, they will never leave completely, therefore, they will never live up to their agreements. Just like the steel companies they will file bankruptcy and leave it to the taxpayers to do the clean up! you people who sold out should be ashamed of yourselves!!!!!

Wonderliar, NOT ONE DROP of oil produced in America is exported, dumbass.

Keystone XL is CANADIAN OIL and they can do whatever the }{ell they want to with it. Why not America make LOTS of MONEY on it as it passes through????

Not one PENNY of US taxpayer money spent on XL but 20-200,000 potential jobs.

Of course Obama is happy he only LOST 663,000 jobs in March 2013.

Anything to keep America suffering huh? They'll probably sell it back to America at 10x's the price.

the money which was used to finance the fracking disaster came from Chinese banks. The banks are owned by the government there and the government is Communist. That is why the banks belong to the government! Carol Jean Moten has a YouTube interview describing the death of her father, a WWII Vet and the neighbors and many animals in Rea, PA. The price we are paying is our very lives for greed and corruption to rob us on behalf of enemy interests. Gas companies have in affect made treaties with enemy nations which is define as treason by US law. Had enough of the pr and bs. support Sherrod Brown Senator from Ohio as he turns off the flow of phony money with the new Currency Manipulation Act. Stop selling the US out. We have place for white collar criminals in America and that is PRISON..help with the ongoing investigations. Call Eyes on Drilling 1-877-9194 and help clean up with the criminal investigators at EPA.What to report? illegal water pumping, toxic water dumping, spills, leaks.

daWraith's first post in this string nailed it. And, all your news outlets did was strew the path of this exploitation with flowers. Hang onto Coal while you can, otherwise some of you will be having to sometimes choose between heat and light or food.

And, even "mkhunt", with the post saying, that: "Carol Jean Moten has a YouTube interview describing the death of her father, a WWII Vet and the neighbors and many animals in Rea, PA. The price we are paying is our very lives for greed and corruption to rob us on behalf of enemy interests", might not know how bad it is. Flowback from gas well fracking brings ancient radium, which geologic processes concentrated in the deep shales, which we once assessed as sources of weapons-building uranium, to the surface. Drilling wastes have triggered radiation alarms at some landfills, which were installed to prevent dumping of radioactive medical wastes. Do a search for: "'Radioactivity in Marcellus Shale'; Studies by the U.S. Geological Survey ... show radium concentrations up to 32 times background concentrations in the Marcellus shale formation. Brought to the surface in rock cuttings, drilling fluids, flowback water and brine, radium can enter the environment in seve

How come these foreign countries are interested in our evil fosil fuel resources and not all of our great "green" energy solutions such as wind and solar?? I guess they actually want to use technology that actually works efficiently and economically. Imagine that...

In terms of price, it really does not matter where the oil is produced. The price of oil is determined on the open world market. Oil companies are virtually all international corporations and will do business where they can obtain the best profit for their product.

This is why the whole "energy independence" propaganda doesn't float!!

If the natural resources of THIS country were only USED by this country, natural gas, and gasoline would be at RECORD low prices and this country would have enough to last HUNDREDS of years!

The very DEFINITION of "energy independence"!!

HOWEVER, in the free market, it is being sold and shipped all over the globe and it's price is set by the highest bidder

We have ZERO manufacturing due to ignorant consumers buy IMPORTED garbage because they are saving a nickel so the energy resources are all we have left we can sell!!!

And I am STILL waiting to see the first wind mill factory the communist in chief promised would be in every closed down steel mill!!

NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!!

A kind of artful approach to infiltrating a country and destroying its people. Any locals who are interested in observing this sort of history in the making have an opportunity now. Is it too late?

Wienerdawg you friggen idiot, the topic is Gas GAS GAAAAAASSS, as in Natural Gas, as in that smelly stuff coming from your rear when you eat beans! Your "Fungibleass" BS is hilariously WRONG.

1/18/2013

Over the past few months, new stories have noted that Canada’s oil sector isn’t getting full price for its heavy oil — in large part because American pipelines are well-supplied with newly-flowing tight oil (“shale oil”) from North Dakota.

The discount on Alberta heavy oil is measured relative to the North American benchmark price, which is for West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude. And said discount has been growing faster than a pimple before prom reaching a jaw-dropping $40 per barrel this week. [2013-01-31: historically the discount has been about $20 per barrel - Matthew] WTI sells for $96 per barrel, and Alberta heavy sells for … $56.

So much for a "world" Price, IDIOT!
