Ongoing War in Israel

As the War in Israel enters a heartbreaking third week, it continues to be at the forefront of our minds. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those impacted with unimaginable loss, particularly the families who have lost their loved ones, homes, and livelihood.

Israel has reported the release of two hostages who had been held in Gaza since the conflict began on October 7. We continue to pray for the safe release of all hostages and hope for the swift restoration of peace and stability in the region.

Humanitarian aid deliveries are now underway, including a convoy of 20 trucks carrying clean water, food, medical care, and other essential needs for Gaza residents passing through the Rafah crossing during its brief opening. If you would like to contribute, here are a couple of organizations who are providing aid: Samaritan’s Purse or Impact Your World.

Texas is Breaking Records

An article on Rigzone.com highlighted the recent findings from the Texas Oil & Gas Association (TXOGA), which showed record-breaking achievements in the state’s oil and gas industry. Texas reached its highest-ever crude oil production rate of 5.9 million barrels per day in September, along with a record-breaking natural gas production figure of 34.6 billion cubic feet per day. These figures underscore the state’s dominant role in the energy sector and its crucial contribution to national and global energy security.

Additionally, TXOGA’s analysis noted records in natural gas liquids (NGL) field production, crude oil inputs for refiners and blenders, and NGL direct use, all based on official data for the month of July. These records affirm Texas’ position as a leading player in processing and distributing energy resources, with a strong emphasis on infrastructure investment.

Dean Foreman, Chief Economist at TXOGA, highlighted the importance of sound energy policies in the context of the current geopolitical landscape and low domestic crude oil reserves. He emphasized that the state’s record-high production significantly contributes to U.S. and global energy security.

The writer pointed out Texas’ significant energy exports, with nearly $125 billion in energy product exports in the first seven months of the year. This demonstrates its substantial role on the international energy stage.
