Canada’s National Energy Board already has approved export licenses for nine LNG export projects in British Columbia that, if all built, would demand a total of up to 16 Bcf/d of Western Canada natural gas. Several other LNG export projects also are under development in BC. In reality, though, at most only a handful of all these projects will be financed and constructed. The BC government’s optimistic estimate is that five liquefaction “trains” with a combined gas throughput of 3.5 Bcf/d (to produce up to 25 million metric tons/year of LNG) will be online by 2023. The questions then are, what will it take for a project to advance, and which developers are making the most headway so far. Today, in the second of our Slip Sliding Away series, we start to assess BC’s top LNG export contenders, including a few late-arriving long shots that could surprise.Active rigs in North Dakota:

I missed this yesterday. On the radio I thought I heard "them" say that the Dow closed only 7 points blow the all-time high yesterday. If accurate, wow. I thought the pull-back was going to be much worse. And it's up a bit today. Let's see: Yahoo!Finance says the 52-week high for the Dow was 17,151,6. Today, it's trading about 16,950. Okay.
The Yahoo!Finance oil ticker is wrong; the correct number ofr WtI crude oil, September 14, 2014, contract: up about 70 cents, around $95.15. That's fine.
Trading at new highs that caught my eye: AAPL, EEQ, EW, KMP, UNP.
AAPL is almost at $101. XOM, around $99.
