A few days ago, I spoke with a US gas company executive who had just recently started his company and he told me that he had started selling natural gas for $1 a day and that was his goal.
He also told me the reason he decided to open his own gas service company was because he was tired of paying a lot of money for gas.
He said he had heard that the US government was cracking down on natural gas drilling in the west.
But as far as I could tell, I had not heard of that.
In fact, in the US, the government is not cracking down at all on natural-gas drilling.
What we do know is that, since January 1, 2015, when President Trump took office, the number of drilling rigs in the United States has grown by more than 400 percent, and the number has increased in every state and territory except New Mexico.
The first drilling rigs were put up in the Marcellus shale formation in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and by the end of 2017, nearly two-thirds of all the rigs had been set up.
But in 2016, as drilling in shale gas drilling became more widespread, the drilling rigs went to states that are not as well-known for their fracking activities.
And even then, the rigs are still set up in areas that are prone to earthquakes.
As a result, the industry has experienced a surge in activity in the last two years.
So what’s happening in the oil and gas industry?
What is the situation in the natural gas industry in the West?
I’ve been writing about oil and natural gas since 2010 and in 2017 I reported on the US energy industry’s efforts to control fracking.
But what has changed since then?
When I wrote about fracking, there were some big changes that were made in the energy industry.
First, the US was finally taking steps to regulate drilling in all shale formations.
The US government made a lot more efforts to limit the amount of oil and chemicals that could be injected into the shale.
But that came with a big price tag.
Secondly, the fracking boom began to get bigger, as companies began to drill in the Barnett Shale, which stretches from Texas to Louisiana and west to California.
That allowed drilling to take place in areas where the government and industry had no control.
And then in the first quarter of 2018, the Department of Energy (DOE) made it easier for oil and chemical companies to drill without a permit in the Shale.
This has created a lot greater pressure on the energy companies, and that’s been causing problems.
Third, the energy boom in the Western US has led to a lot less oil and oil-related jobs in the country, which has led the oil-and-gas companies to look to other areas of the world for growth.
In 2016, for example, the oil companies moved from South America to the Middle East.
In 2017, the same companies moved to Canada, a country that had become a major producer of oil.
And in 2018, in a move that is becoming more common, oil companies started to move from Europe to North America, where the US economy has more of a role in the economy.
And in 2020, a major oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and a spill in Norway that spilled more than 12 million gallons of oil led to the US declaring a moratorium on oil and methane drilling in federal waters.
In fact, oil and energy companies in North America have already moved away from the US to other parts of the globe, including Russia, India and Brazil.
But what is the impact of all of this?
The drilling boom has not resulted in an explosion of the shale gas industry, but it has led a lot fewer oil and other drilling rigs to come to the United Kingdom.
And, by the time they do come, the natural-Gas industry will have been in decline for decades.
What do we do about this?
Well, one of the main reasons why people are concerned about the shale-gas boom is that there are many reasons.
There are worries that the boom will cause earthquakes.
There are concerns that the drilling will lead to methane leaks, or that drilling will cause more methane to leak from shale formations than it otherwise would.
And there are fears that the industry will be able to extract much more gas than it can use.
All of these concerns are being voiced by the shale industry, not only by oil and fracking companies.
The US Energy Information Administration has estimated that the total US natural gas production could reach 4.8 billion cubic feet (bcf) in 2020 and by 2025, there could be as much as 8.4 billion bcf of gas in the shale and shale gas production is expected to increase by nearly 500 percent by 2035.
But if the shale boom does not continue to grow and if drilling continues
