It’s possible we could be headed for a shortfall in global oil supply as soon as next year – pretty remarkable considering where oil demand was last spring, with economies slowing under the weight of the pandemic.

Based on projected rising demand, the natural production decline from existing wells and decreases in drilling activity and industry investment – especially in the U.S. – the world’s oil needs could outpace production in 2022. An undersupply potentially could put upward pressure on costs, impacting consumers, manufacturers and, generally, any process that utilizes oil.

American Petroleum Institute (API) recently announced the first three participants in its new higher education initiative which makes all 700+ API standards accessible, free of charge, to students at accredited Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs).

Prairie View A&M University, Southern University and A&M College and Grambling University are the program’s first participants and as we approach Black History Month – celebrating diversity and the contributions of Black Americans – this news is especially timely.

API’s new program is a natural follow-on to last October’s脸谱网conversationbetween Dr. Benjamin Chavis, National Newspaper Publishers Association president and CEO, and Mike Sommers, API President and CEO, in which they discussed career opportunities for African Americans in the natural gas and oil industry.

本周超过400万德克萨斯州的家庭和企业一直没有电,因为北极空气群众留下了悬停在零周围的温度下的州。电力和天然气使用尖刺和滚动停电被命令,因为能源系统经历了Webber Energy集团的内容Joshua Rhodescalled a “black swan event” that taxed all parts of those systems at the same time.

我与美国石油学会(API)负责天然气市场的副总裁达斯汀·迈耶(Dustin Meyer)进行了交谈,以了解德克萨斯州发生了什么,了解美国第一大能源州在电力和热力方面苦苦挣扎的情况,以及有哪些资源可以帮助防止这种情况再次发生。

Bottom line points: Texas’ difficulties represent a failure of the grid across the board, with all generation technologies falling short of expectations; as in California last summer, events in Texas underscore the need for a diverse energy supply and smart planning to support the health of the U.S. power grid; natural gas, unique among energy sources insupplying needed attributes that ensure grid reliability,是,仍将是这种多元化混合的关键;天然气本周在德克萨斯州携带大部分能量负荷,而没有贡献能量图片将更糟糕。扩展的基础设施将有助于使天然气系统更具弹性。

As oil prices rallied this past week, headlines suggested that oil demand recovery is expected to提速(需要订阅)今年晚些时候。然而,API最新月度统计报告一月份的数据显示,2021年美国石油市场已经开始了一个非凡的月份:

Total U.S. petroleum demand returned to within 1.2% of its level from January 2020 despite the pandemic; refining and petrochemical demand for other oils – naphtha, gasoil, propane/propylene reached a record-high level (6.5 million barrels per day, mb/d) and 33.1% share of total U.S. petroleum demand; and t他表示,美国1月份原油进口量为1992年以来最低,推动了美国石油净出口。

Consider this: For all of the economic pain and dislocation caused by the 2020 COVID-19 recession, U.S. petroleum demand returned to within a hair of its pre-COVID levels and well within the five-year range.

当能源成本上升,尤其是泵的价格上涨时,大多数人都会生气。这是可以理解的;根据美国劳工统计局(U.s.BureauofLaborStatistics)的数据,2019年能源支出占家庭支出的6.5%Consumer Expenditure Survey。Yet, as we’ll see, energy policy choices can affect far more than just what you pay for a gallon of gasoline or your monthly electricity bill.

For example, imagine how you would feel if you learned that U.S. energy policies materially raised the cost of houses and vehicles, in addition to the fuel they require, thecosts of which have been on the rise. 这两项加上能源,占一个典型家庭支出的一半以上。

Higher energy costs are a distinct possibility with the Biden administration’s decision to halt new federal natural gas and oil leasing, potentially reducing domestic production, as well as possible moves on the regulatory front and other actions that could limit drilling or hydraulic fracturing. These could put upward pressure on energy costs that then would ripple across various sectors since virtually everything has an energy component.

America’s natural gas and oil industry is a reliable foundation for our country’s economic recovery and resurgence, as well as a key factor in helping the nation reach climate and environmental goals. In that context, it’s encouraging to hear President Biden’s nominee to lead the U.S. Department of Energy – former Michigan Gov.Jennifer Granholm– express support for U.S. natural gas leadership and the opportunity to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions through liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports.

The industry is committed to working with the Biden administration toward workableclimate solutions天然气发电是国内外清洁能源结构的关键。

在有关天然气和石油管道的公开辩论中,人们往往低估了基础设施项目在多大程度上促进了当地经济,并支持了“诱导”就业机会——这些就业机会是基于工业工人、相关供应商和承包商的支出。在被取消的Keystone XL管道沿线,各类企业和服务部门都感受到了失去这些好处的感觉。

该行业与拜登总统的目标一致,即让美国人重返工作岗位,美国可以通过解决美国对更多能源基础设施的迫切需求,加速创造就业机会。不幸的是Keystone XL结构undermines the “Build Back Better” plan and hurts small communities and their residents.

Setting a high bar for industry safety and operational performance isn’t new for API. For nearly a century, API has led the way in developing standards that establish how natural gas and oil and the products made from them will be safely produced and delivered to consumers – including the operations themselves, from equipment and machinery to transportation and distribution systems.

That’s the foundation for launching the newAPI能源卓越倡议-规定了最高绩效对安全和环境保护以及社区安全和保障的意义。重要的是,它还设置了每个API成员应用程序的13 core elementsto accelerate safety and environmental progress in the natural gas and oil industry.
