U.S. Natural Gas Reserves Increase Again in 2009
Washington, D.C. ? The American Gas Association (AGA) today reported that at year-end 2009 the ?known reserves? of natural gas in the United States likely increased for the eleventh straight year and now approach 250 trillion cubic feet ? the highest level in more than 35 years. Much of the supply optimism can be traced to the influences of unconventional resources such as natural gas from shale and tight sands.
?Natural gas supply in this county remains bullish,? said David N. Parker, AGA president and CEO. ?Production is also up, underpinned by the recent development of secure, domestic natural gas resources in deepwater offshore, as well as unconventional gas in the lower 48 states. This is great news for natural gas customers. AGA believes these numbers will hold steady for the foreseeable future unless significant policy decisions restrict access to potential resources of domestic natural gas.?
BP, the largest U.S. producer of natural gas in 2009, produced less than five percent of the national total last year, indicating that the natural gas production industry remains very competitive. Other large producers and reserves holders include household names such as ExxonMobil, yet significant volumes of gas are produced by others, such as Chesapeake Energy, Devon, Anadarko and EOG Resources. In fact, thousands of other large, mid-size and small producers provided the bulk of domestic natural gas to local distribution companies last year.
?The natural gas industry is the lifeblood of many American communities, contributing millions of jobs to the economy and billions in revenue to the U.S. Treasury,? said Parker. ?Our findings reinforce that this clean, efficient fuel is available in our country right now ? making it an essential component for any national energy policy.?

The American Gas Association, founded in 1918, represents 195 local energy companies that deliver clean natural gas throughout the United States. There are more than 70 million residential, commercial and industrial natural gas customers in the U.S., of which 91 percent ? more than 64 million customers ? receive their gas from AGA members. Today, natural gas meets almost one-fourth of the United States' energy needs.

AHRI Signs Standards Agreement with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates
Arlington, Va. (March 15, 2010) -- On a recent trip to the middle east, Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) President and CEO Stephen Yurek signed cooperative agreements with the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Association (SASO) and the UAE's Emirates Standardization and Metrology Authority, ESMA, aimed at further harmonizing HVACR and water heating testing and rating standards globally. The agreement calls for SASO and ESMA to adopt AHRI's standards as Saudi, and UAE national standards, respectively, in some cases with regional adaptations.
In recent months, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates have begun to place a new emphasis on energy efficiency and environmental protection. With personal visits in November 2009 and February 2010, AHRI has signaled in a very serious way its intent to work closely with the governments of those nations to use AHRI standards and performance certification programs to help them meet with efficiency and environmental goals and to further global harmonization of standards and certification programs.
"This agreement is an important first step in what we hope and expect will be on ongoing, very productive relationship," Yurek said. Our active involvement in this region not only helps us expand our global reach, but also helps our member companies that do business in the region compete on a level playing field with other manufacturers," he said.
Discussions are underway between AHRI, SASO and ESMA about holding a series of workshops is that could lead to an agreement on adoption of certification in the near future. The Emirates Standardization and Metrology Authority (ESMA) has invited AHRI and other private parties, including AHRI member companies to apply to participate in ESMA standards development and conformity assessment committees that ultimately will develop Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) for the UAE.
The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) is the trade association representing manufacturers of air conditioning, heating and commercial refrigeration equipment. An internationally recognized advocate for the industry, AHRI develops standards for and certifies the performance of many of these products. AHRI's 300 member companies account for more than 90 percent of the residential and commercial air conditioning, space heating, water heating, and commercial refrigeration equipment manufactured and sold in North America.
