The impact fees Pennsylvania receives from shale drilling have jumped up a whopping 21% and will be distributed to all counties across the Commonwealth.

We hear Governor Tom Wolf talk about Pennsylvania adopting a severance tax to ensure natural gas producers are paying their fair share. What he fails to say is, natural gas drillers are already paying their fair share through the existing Act 13 impact fee.  Since 2012, when the impact fee was enacted, nearly $1.5 billion has been generated from natural gas development and been distributed to every county in the Commonwealth.

Natural gas has rapidly become the Untied State’s fuel of choice. It is really no surprise as it has become so abundant and affordable. Natural gas has taken over where coal left off for power-generation as it is more economical and cleaner for the environment.

Fuel cell power plants made possible by the plentiful natural gas unleashed by the shale revolution are changing the world of heat and power as we know it.

A fuel cell is a source of power which will efficiently convert clean natural gas into virtually emissions free electricity. You can almost compare a fuel cell to a battery, but the fuel cell will never run down or need to be charged.

Josh Fox has resurfaced and has sent out an email blast trying to drum up support for the DRBC’s proposed fracking ban. Let’s shut him down.

Josh Fox, as you may remember, is a fractivist known for his anti-fracking screed Gasland. It was a sham; full of deceit and exaggerations. It did not take long to realize this spoiled child extremist had no credibility and certainly no concern for anything but promoting himself.

A ludicrous “health study” led by fractivists and published in fake news outlet Rolling Stone, is countered by a Canadian health study from last year.

Rolling Stone just published a laughable “health study” conducted by a team of committed fractivists. It’s not a study at all, in fact, but a junk science compendium, as Seth Whitehead at Energy In Depth illustrates, demolishing the whole thing to the point there’s nothing left of it. Read his detailed analysis and see just how bad this most recent effort by Sandra Steingraber and company real is. The only thing he left out is the fact Sandra has heated her own home with natural gas while attacking fracking.

PennEast Pipeline has laid out the New Jersey dilemma with respect to pipelines vs. the “trendy, but scientifically unfounded” fixations of environmental extremists; Russia or Pennsylvania?

Those Russian shipments of LNG to Boston as its politicians and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo stood on soapboxes to earn brownie points with environmental extremists in opposing pipelines were a wakeup call. PennEast Pipeline is making sure New Jersey heard it.

As Canada looks to develop its natural gas reserves, Native Americans and First Nations are showing their support and can see its importance.

Canada is rapidly developing its natural gas reserves, and as it does, Native Americans and First Nations are looking to participate and support it. First Nations have always played a part in the development of natural gas because the government and the oil companies legally have to consult and accommodate the First Nations before proceeding with any work.
