Quarterly USA H2 Report Becomes Quarterly USA & Canada H2 Report

RMP is based near Detroit, Michigan.   The Detroit River separates the City of Detroit & the City of Windsor.  The Ambassador Bridge connects the two cities and soon the Gordy Howe International Bridge, a once in a generation undertaking, will be a second major bridge connecting the two cities.  Windsor is my personal connection to Canada and has been woven into the fabric of my life since I was a child.  I can remember seeing Ronald Reagan at Cobo Hall in the morning & crossing the bridge to Windsor and seeing Queen Elizabeth in Windsor on the very same day.   The USA & Canada border is vast and the friendship & commerce all along the USA & Canada border provides many folks from Washington to New York their own personal connections to our neighbor to the north.

Canada is also a leader in Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology.  Ballard Power is (more…)

Debunking Dr. Bossel’s Anti-Hydrogen Thesis

In this post RMP debunks Dr. Ulf Bossel’s anti-hydrogen thesis that has been propagated for years and was even published as recent as October 26, 2017 by Electrek. Dr. Bossel’s thesis says that making hydrogen is wasteful but ironically terawatt hours of electricity are being curtailed or wasted because we are not using that energy to make hydrogen. Read this post if you want to learn why so much energy is being wasted that could be used to make clean green hydrogen.

Carbon Capture & Sequestration (#CCS) – Michigan’s Leading Role

Michigan is playing a leading role in Carbon Capture & Sequestration (#CCS). Developing solar & wind as renewable energy resources is very important, but there is a reality that fossil fuels will provide a majority percentage of global energy for many decades to come even if every single world citizen & legislator focused on eliminating coal & oil. These are facts. Check out RMP’s report on why #CCS is so important, how Michigan is playing a leading role in #CCS, and check out RMP’s exclusive new map of Carbon Dioxide sequestration wells. Join RMP to learn about the energy issues that matter most.

Michigan Oil & Gas Monthly – August 2016

Michigan oil & gas activity gets busy in August of 2016. August has more applications for new wells than all seven previous months of 2016 combined. We have an applications for Carbon Dioxide Sequestration, High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing (HVHF), as well as applications to explore the Trenton Group in Lenawee & Monroe Counties. The HVHF well takes us down memory lane and we examine why the Integrated Assessment of HVHF published by the University of Michigan’s Graham Sustainability Institute is a fundamentally flawed report with flawed timing.

Michigan Oil & Gas Monthly – July 2016

This month a group calling themselves the MICATS staged a protest at Attorney General Bill Schuette’s home in Midland, Michigan.  The Detroit News has a story here.

For the record, I have never supported extremist groups or individuals like those in MICATS and neither has respectmyplanet.org.  I don’t know them, affiliate with them, or in any way condone what they did.  RMP supports as part of our stated mission the migration away from oil as an energy source.   RMP supports ending oil pipelines that traverse our (more…)

Michigan Oil & Gas Monthly – June 2016

In this month’s MOGM, RMP covers the dearth of oil & gas activity in Michigan and the bankruptcies precipitated by the collapse of the industry at large. We also talk about finances and economics of the Hydrogen Economy and how Michigan and the rest of the world can prosper by supporting Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles. For FCEVs, the future is bright & clean. For crude oil, the buzzards are circling.

Michigan Oil & Gas Production Report January – December 2015

The 2015 full year petroleum production numbers are, according to RMP estimates, 98% reported. That means it’s time to review a whole host of tables and graphs showing you the top hydrocarbon producers in the Michigan Basin for 2015. Check out this annual production summary to see what got produced and where in Michigan. Also, a new feature added to our annual production summary is the estimated revenue generated by operator based on advanced calculations you’ll only find on RMP.
