I hate to burst the bubble that you are trniyg to inflate Mark but the EIA has a terrible track record that is even worse than that of the IEA or BP Statistical Review. How does shale become a viable source of energy if prices stay low and break even costs run between $7.50 to $8.00 per Mcf? And what happens to productivity when the core areas that are now being exploited are past their peak? How do the marginal, low energy-density formations manage to produce enough gas to meet the EIA projections? I am sorry but these fools sound just like the Fed economists who told us that the housing industry was sound in 2006.
