There are no ifs, ands or buts about it — the United States is undergoing an enormous energy boom.
Let’s take a look at the stats of America’s energy boom:
— For 17 consecutive weeks, the amount of available natural gas storage has declined.
— 50 trillion cubic feet of natural gas are expected to be produced by Midwestern states.
— 420,000 barrels of oil are expected to be produced each day by southern Texas’ Eagle Ford formation.
— 111,000 jobs are expected to be created by shale gas production in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus shale formation.
— 200,000 jobs are expected to be created by shale gas drilling in Ohio.
— 7 years since the U.S. produced as much oil as it did in 2010.
— $24 billion was invested in energy by private equity firms in 2011.
— $6 billion was invested in energy by foreign firms in 2011.
As we mentioned last month, the U.S. — the largest energy consumer in the world by a longshot — is on pace to become a net energy exporter in 2012. It’s a pretty amazing feat, and one that will require our nation’s energy companies to be operating at peak performance for long stretches of time.
