Most people use plastic products every day, but what they may not know is that natural gas plays a huge role in its manufacturing.

There is now another reason natural gas is so important in our everyday lives, plastic. Many of us use plastic products every day and never think about where they come from or how they are manufactured.  The Marcellus and Utica Shales that are producing our affordable natural gas also produce a natural gas liquid called ethane.

Opportunities follow natural gas development, whether its creating jobs, saving on energy costs or lowing emissions, it’s changing lives for the better.

The first time I heard of natural gas development I knew, by the excitement in the voice of the person telling me, this was going to do amazing things for our area. Little did I know then how much opportunity was about to be created. As natural gas leases were signed by landowners and farmers, you started to see new projects beginning. Maybe it was an addition, a garage being built or new farm equipment being bought; whatever it was, money was now flowing in the local communities.

Struggling farmers in the Marcellus region are often a thing of the past because of fracking. Natural gas has reinvigorated communities and saved countless farms.

Farming has always been a labor of love and profits were not necessarily the outcome. In recent years, as the economy took a downturn, farmers were especially hit hard. Milk prices were at an all-time low and gas was at an all-time high. Many faced more expenses than income.

When fracking came along, struggling farmers, with their vast amounts of land, had a perfect opportunity to change things and get some much needed income. Essentially saving their farms from bankruptcy.
