As Natural Gas Output Maxes, Bulls Bet Big On Summer and U.S. LNG Demand

Investing reported: U.S. natural gas production is hitting record highs week after week.

‘Atmos Has an Obligation’ To Give Customers Gas Detectors, Says Texas Burn Victim Who’s Suing

Dallas News reported: In his dreams, Russell McElyea relives a day at a friend’s house two years ago. He’s at Raul Pedroza’s home in Stephenville, about 60 miles southwest of Fort Worth, watching his friend make lunch.

Video recorded minutes later on responding police officers’ body cameras shows Pedroza begging for help on a neighbor’s front porch, with the front of his shirt and the skin on his arms burned off. Neither man reported smelling natural gas before the blast, and McElyea says Texans should know that the telltale sulfuric odor isn’t a foolproof method of discovering a leak.
