    Only if it is even collectible at all. Not worth enough of late to justify build investment of facilities to even collect, process, and concentrate rather a lot of it not all that long ago:

    Going With the Flow: Changes in the Directional Flow of Natural Gas Due to Increased Shale Gas Supply May Lead to Increased Fuel Charges for Pipeline Customers | Energy Interdependency Blog

    From the linked:
    "The Paradigm Shift to Bi-Directional Gas Flows: The increased supply of natural gas in the North, generated largely through fracking in the Marcellus Shale, has led to more and more gas entering pipelines from the North. On certain pipelines, like Texas Eastern, this results in gas actually flowing both downstream and upstream. What historically was a backhaul transaction to send gas upstream from north to south through displacement, is now a true reverse-flow transaction in some cases. The question then arises – what, if any, fuel charges should pipelines now assess for upstream gas transportation?"

    the electric prolem here is because the northern supply contracts take

    precedence to the contracts for the combined cycle plants

    might be changing due to the governor

    the supply prolem is lack of methanol at the well heads (jit bs)

    dehy plants are fine

    My citation is a year-plus old, Doug's over seven years. Lot has happened. More needs to happen as to freezing to death in the time of surplus.

    Really BAD time to have a functional IDIOT merely warming the resolute chair in the Wyde Howz for a more ACTIVE suicide-kit a-waiting her own stupid-pill ration to reach critical mass.

    I don't give two shits what their "party" wants.

    They are simply as predictably USELESS as split compression lockwashers on cephalopods.

    Exactly as they were CHOSEN to be.

    Can't be bothered to compete with America?

    No sweat. Just hire it f**ked up badly... and go around a circus act off on a side-road, all tires flat, hair and panties all afire.

    Again.

    You really are a piece of work. Biden has been president for almost one month. The Republicans have controlled Texas for decades. They ignored federal warnings about weaknesses in their electric grid after a major freeze in 1989, same thing in 2011, and most likely they will ignore it again after this one in 2021. Must be because of the windmills.

    Yeah, it's all Joe Biden's fault.

    Lol. Funny how that works, manny. Trump was evil BEFORE he ever took office and every day thereafter. Every possible ill was blamed on him. Guess what? Now it's Beijing Biden's turn. Karma's a ....well, you know, the thing!

    And don't try making it a party issue...Republicans have their share of criminals also. Maybe someday you'll get why Trump was as good as he was - he belonged to no party. But what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander so bend over and take your Biden humiliation right where Hunter would put it.

    And uh, the Texas grid is standing on its own, because Texas wanted it that way so they could do it their way, without interference from the Feds. Plenty of management benefits to that, but it also means they get very little help from the Feds or their neighbors in the event of an emergency, like this storm.

    Go ask any Texan right now how they think their energy policy is doing. Like I said, I don't know it perry had anything to do with removing most of Texas from the national grid but if he did he probably isn't getting good reviews from the people who are without power now.

    As to perry being president, he most likely would have been preferable to our last dismal failure of a president.

    Texas's independent grid goes back to the time when the grid(s) were just forming, long before any current politicos were involved.

    The causes of the current problem will take a good deal of analysis, however claims that it was all due to "frozen wind turbines" or nothing to do with "frozen wind turbines" are both false. Of the generation capacity that has been down and causing the issue, it is roughly 1/3 wind and 2/3 other that is down, both are significant.

    Related to the subject of energy, here in Massachusetts Bruce Ismay, the Governor's undersecretary for climate change recently resigned after being called out for saying the state needs to “break their will” and “turn the screws on” ordinary people to force changes in their consumption of heating fuels and gasoline.

    He also said that homeowners, motorists and fishermen need to prepare for hard times coming under state's push for net-zero emissions in the coming years.

    GOOD RIDDANCE to this elitist prick!

    Embattled Massachusetts climate official David Ismay resigns 'immediately'

    Interestingly, he holds the exact same name as the elitist prick who forced the Titanic to sail at reckless speed through an ice field and then escaped in a lifeboat meant for women and children.

    Difference between pride and openness vs clinging to a substandard "leader:" while pretending to be "middle of the road".

    I tried to understand your post and it looks like you are taking another shot at Biden. What did he do? Got to Cancun with Texas senator cruz? Gotta love cruz. See you assholes later. I'm outa here. Typical of how republicans run their show.

    If you are in a cult you can only see your leader as the best of everything. Please seek mental help. People have left cults before and you can too if you really want to.

    The main difference is we don't feel a need to attend massive rallies and wear a bunch of chinese made cult stuff. I have voted for republicans before and may do so in the future but not for anyone like trump. He's a criminal who should be locked up or executed for crimes against the state.
