RMP publishes 2016 hydrocarbon production data. Check out this post to see how much oil, natural gas, and NGLs were produced in Michigan in 2016. We have charts, graphs, and numbers and three different top 10 lists.
RMP will be publishing regular updates of our public hydrogen infrastructure map and data starting with this very post. Want to know what’s new with H2 infrastructure?

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.
At this point in October of 2016, all the reporting through the first six months of 2016 is complete. RMP has again downloaded, parsed, and analyzed the Michigan hydrocarbon production data for the Michigan Basin. Click through to check out our reporting and graphical analysis of Michigan Basin production. This post’s cover photo was taken 10/21/2016 and is the brand new 700 MW Alpine Natural Gas Power Plant west of Gaylord. Photo Credit: Neo.
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.
Check out our interactive map of ground water contamination at the former Wurtsmith Air Force Base in Oscoda, Michigan. RMP considers Wurtsmith on our top 10 list of environmentally contaminated hot spots in the Michigan Basin. Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) in fish surrounding WAFB were so high that Michigan Department of Community Health issued fish advisories immediately after receiving the data on May 2, 2012. Samples collected (by MDEQ) during the December 2011 investigation indicate elevated levels of PFCs in the groundwater, ranging from about 280 ppt (LF27 GP25) to 3,900 ppt (LF27 GP31).

When FERC approved Cheniere to be the first licensed exporter of LNG in the USA, everyone took notice, including RMP. Now, 4 years later, Cheniere is about to start shipping LNG to customers in the UK, Spain, Korea, and India. Contracts have also been inked with companies in France for trains that come online in future years. Read this post to learn more and stay tuned for our upcoming interactive world map of LNG facilities.
