    No doubt Dan , Aubrey beat the odds , went from land man to billionaire and built a powerhouse gas company. He has my admiration and respect for his accomplishments. I think he over played his hand in my view [ just a tad ] Corporate governance was on another planet , board members running a muck , CEO out of control . Uncle Carl has brought accountability back to CHK and it should bode well for its shareholders.

    You gotta love it , Carl tells it like it is. With Aubrey gone the shareholders have a fighting chance to make a buck , I wouldn’t be an investor in Aubrey’s new enterprises……………..

    “I believe that the facts “reduce” to one indisputable truth which is that we must change our system of selecting CEOs in order to stay competitive and get us out of an extremely dangerous financial situation. With exceptions, I believe that too many companies in this country are terribly run and there’s no system in place to hold the CEOs and Boards of these inadequately managed companies accountable. There are numerous challenges we are facing today whether it be monetary policy, unemployment, income inequality, the list can go on and on… but the thing we have to remember is there is something we can do about it: Shareholders, the true owners of our companies, can demand that mediocre CEOs are held accountable and make it clear that they will be replaced if they are failing. “

    Mexico’s Senate approves energy overhaul

    by dmorgan2151 Jul 19, 2014 9:29 AM
    nafta07 nafta07 Jul 20, 2014 3:20 PM Flag

    ETP signs deal to supply Mexico's CFE with 930 MMcf/d

    "Energy Transfer Partners has signed a 15-year agreement with Mexico's Comision Federal De Electricidad to provide 930 MMcf/d across the Texas border to Mexico's growing fleet of gas-fired power plants. ETP's Houston Pipe Line and Oasis Pipeline will use their existing systems and build two new interconnects to deliver gas to the Mexican pipeline system. The Edinburg Extension near McAllen, Texas, is expected to enter service in the fourth quarter, while the Nueces Crossover will connect with ETP’s existing facilities in Live Oak County and will be completed Q1 2015. Bentek estimates Texas exports to Mexico have averaged 1.3 Bcf/d so far this year, unchanged from last year. Bentek expects an additional 2.6 Bcf/d of export capacity to Mexico will be developed by the end of 2014, bringing total capacity to 8.4 Bcf/d and an additional 5,500 MW of gas-fired power plants are expected to be completed in Mexico between 2014 and 2016.
    Bentek forecasts gas demand in Mexico to grow 30% between 2013 and 2018."

    Mexico's demand for NG is rising faster than they can produce it , they don't have the expertise to drill shale.
    Opening up their market will solve that and for the companies drilling the Eagleford they know it doesn't stop at the border.

    Lawler’s hedges are starting to look brilliant about now , even with NG dropping down a bit CHK will realize a 25% premium for dry gas over last quarter.

    “Utica Triggers Regional Role Reversal reports that over the next decade, the North American natural gas market will see a series of major pipeline reversals that will change gas flows and price relationships across the continent.

    Abundant gas supply will be the norm going forward and global energy companies have gone far beyond just taking notice. There are two main causes behind the natural gas market changes: the growth of Northeast gas production from the Marcellus and Utica shale’s, and burgeoning Southeast gas demand from power, large new industrial facilities and proposed LNG export terminals.

    Taken together, these changes will trigger an unprecedented continental domino effect.”

    The new industries being planned will pop up in the southeast primarily and be feed from the Marcellus and Utica , the existing infrastructure will reverse and pump NG out of the northeast to the south , quite a dynamic change………

    The oil export ban has been lifted on a non-crude ,cleaned natural gas condensate or NG liquid is what they are talking about , it should help the drillers by supporting liquids pricing going forward…..

    Chinese question

    Why buy them when you can bring them to China in JV
    LONDON, June 11 (Reuters) - State-of-the-art American fracking technology is coming to China's vast shale deposits as a result of a joint venture between FTS International and Sinopec announced on Tuesday.

    SinoFTS, as the joint venture will be called, marks an important milestone on the road to exporting the North American shale revolution around the world.

    FTSI, formerly known as Frac Tech, was one of the first providers more than a decade ago of hydraulic fracturing equipment and services in the Texas Barnett shale, the first shale basin to be developed in the United States.

    Since then, the company has grown into the largest supplier of well completion services in U.S. shale formations, including pressure pumping, wireline logging and water management.

    FTSI has started to export its expertise around the world through a series of strategic alliances. Since 2012, it has concluded joint ventures with local partners in Brazil as well as Saudi Arabia and Oman.

    Other specialist shale drilling and fracking firms are also taking their first steps overseas.

    In March, Helmerich & Payne, one of the largest drillers in North America, announced it will transfer 10 of its modern FlexRigs to exploit Argentina's Vaca Muerta shale under a five-year contract with state-owned YPF,

    Next weeks' injection

    Acording to Bentek Power burn will not off set production growth , I will guess 106

    Production, power burn both higher week-over-week

    Bentek's estimate of US dry gas production hit an average 68 Bcf/d this week, in line with the Market Call forecast for the month. Northeast output continues to drive production growth; grossed production there is 40% higher than year-ago levels. Power burn averaged 24 Bcf/d for the week, with a high of 28.2 Bcf on Tuesday before trending lower the past three days. Burn month-to-date trails the Market Call forecast for June by 0.7 Bcf/d as cooling demand has not yet materialized in many areas. Burn is forecast to move back above 25 Bcf/d across the next week and top 27 Bcf/d into early July.

    I am an TWTC holder so I have several months to think about my options , I may just may let it roll with the $10.00 cash PS and .7 share exchange. Either way I go I will I have large realized gains . Going forward it’s looking like LVLT has turned the corner so parking some money here might be a profitable option……….

  • Level 3 to Acquire tw telecom

    Transaction Highlights
     Highly Complementary Business and Assets with a Focus on a World Class Customer
    Experience; Positions Level 3 as a Premier Global Communications Provider
     Transaction Generates Significant Financial Benefits; Expected to Be Accretive on a
    Free Cash Flow Per Share Basis after First Year Following Transaction Close
     Combined Company Enterprise Value of $25 Billion Creates a Stronger Competitor to
    Deliver Significant Customer Benefits


    BROOMFIELD, Colo. and LITTLETON, Colo., June 16, 2014 – Level 3 Communications, Inc.
    (NYSE: LVLT) and tw telecom (NASDAQ: TWTC) today announced that they have entered into
    a definitive agreement, intended to qualify as a tax-free reorganization, whereby Level 3 will
    acquire tw telecom in a stock-and-cash transaction valued at $40.86 per share based on market
    close as of June 13, 2014.

    Under the terms and subject to the conditions of the agreement, tw telecom stockholders will
    receive $10 cash and 0.7 shares of Level 3 common stock for each share of tw telecom

    local operations and assets in North America with Level 3’s global assets and capabilities.

    The rest is on their web page , the real question is to hold or sell......................

    Report: Level 3 interested in buying TW Telecom • 6:57 PM
    • Level 3 (LVLT) is "intensifying talks with TW Telecom (TWTC) about a possible acquisition," though no deal is imminent, sources tell BrightWire.
    • TW (current market cap of $4.5B) has a large nationwide fiber network (connects 20K+ commercial buildings) that would bolster Level 3's own network, and bills itself of the top 3 U.S. business Ethernet providers. Both companies are based out of Colorado.
    • BrightWire states Level 3 was also interested in TW back in 2012, when the company (per reports) hired Evercore to explore its options. But Level 3 is in much better shape today to make a bid.
    • Speculation that Level 3 could bid for TW has been around for a while.

    LVLT has certainly pumped the price up , I have never been impressed with their management through. If push comes to shove and a sale develops I would rather it be CenturyLink because they have a stronger balance sheet and they acutely make a profit in their enterprise……..

    Rig count down .........Again

    nafta07 nafta07 Jun 12, 2014 4:06 PM Flag

    I think we are in a sweet spot for the time being , With the rig count down as others have noted production is up, but not enough to replace last winter’s epic draw . It looks to me like we have support in the $4.50 range that could last until the end of the year. The benefit to companies like CHK will be enormous.
