Tighter Supplies Push Natural Gas Prices Higher

U.S. natural gas exports to Mexico hit a new record amid sagging production south of the border. Mexico imported about 6 billion cubic feet of natural per day from the United States in August, the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported late Thursday afternoon.

Texas regulators already issued at least 15 permits for new frac sand mine startups in 2018, with annual projected supply expected to reach 40 million tons, according to analysts. Several Permian sand suppliers reported securing long term customer commitments of more than 1 million tons of sand per year. In September, Houston-based WildHorse Resources started construction of its $70 million frac sand mine the eastern end of the Eagle Ford Shale. For more on this story visit or click
