The oil industry is in an increasingly bullish mood, but the ongoing push-pull between U.S. oil producers and the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries isn’t over yet. Jeff Quigley, director of energy markets for the consulting and research firm Stratas Advisors, said that the outlook for the U.S. oil industry is upbeat, but noted that OPEC members are well positioned for 2018, too — as long as they can keep shale drillers in the U.S. a little off balance.
It isn’t the boom days when oil trucks created big-city traffic jams on gravel roads and a night at a mediocre hotel cost $300. But the Eagle Ford Shale is back from the bust - sort of - at a level that’s admittedly more middle-aged, less teenager.
An oil boom is in full swing in the Permian Basin in West Texas along with one of its expected but more unwelcome sidekicks — natural gas flaring, according to a new report. Permian Basin producers were burning off between 3 and 4 percent of their natural gas, higher than the state average, in 2014 and 2015, according to a report being released today by the Environmental Defense Fund.
This is such crap. Balance billing is clearly a business tactic used against patients who must use the ER and get stuck with an out-of-network doctor. Great reporting by @jenny_deam: https://t.co/8WZi3m5m79
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
