The fact that policymakers are even dicnussisg exports is a remarkable statement about how the shale-gas revolution has turned energy markets on their head.What nonsense. Producers are getting killed because most of them cant make a profit at less than $8 gas. The marginal producer cant make a profit at less than $15 gas. The exporters cant make a profit unless the prices that they get their gas remain depressed. This means that the math does not work, something that even Mark should be able to see quite quickly.

The fact that policymakers are even dicnussisg exports is a remarkable statement about how the shale-gas revolution has turned energy markets on their head.What nonsense. Producers are getting killed because most of them can't make a profit at less than $8 gas. The marginal producer can't make a profit at less than $15 gas. The 'exporters' can't make a profit unless the prices that they get their gas remain depressed. This means that the math does not work, something that even Mark should be able to see quite quickly.
