By Shelly Sindland
Connecticut Natural Gas is sending out letters to all ratepayers to inform them that their rates will be going up to pay for the state's proposed $3 billion energy plan.

E&E Daily
The image is tailor-made to stoke fury over the shuttered government: drillers pulling oil and gas from beneath national parkland that citizens are barred from entering. But what greens decry as painful fallout from the shutdown is happening on a smaller scale than some have argued.

Contract transparency: A win-win situation
By Stefanie Heerwig
Contract transparency is increasingly advocated as a tool to achieve good governance in the extractive industries around the globe. Those opposing contract transparency argue that if the practice is not implemented consistently, nontransparent companies will have an advantage to transparent ones, and nontransparent countries will attract more investment compared to transparent ones. But, first of all, what does contract transparency mean and how is it supposed to bring about good governance? And, more importantly, are there reasons for companies to support contract transparency?

Bullish on US oil and gas
Barrons
Forty years ago this month, OPEC slammed the door on oil exports to the U.S. That was the original inspiration for the push for U.S. energy independence. Today's Syrian conflict is keeping the pressure on the U.S. to stay focused on building energy reserves. Thus, U.S. exploration and production companies are shedding assets abroad and deploying capital at home. Domestic crude production is at 25-year highs. In 2014, it's expected to rise to 8.4 million barrels a day, from 7.8 million this year.
