Delaware Riverkeeper Now Going After the Little Guys

… 

If it is not enough the fractivist Delaware Riverkeeper gang aims to disrupt interstate pipelines; now they are targeting small pipeline projects, too.

A change-up in tactics for Maya van Rossum, THE Delaware Riverkeeper. Until now, Riverkeeper has mostly concentrated its efforts on big, federally regulated interstate pipeline projects, like the PennEast Pipeline. However, new marching orders have been delivered from Riverkeeper’s overlords at the William Penn Foundation. Time to go after the small potatoes, too.

So, Riverkeeper (funded big-time by William Penn) naturally obeys, and has filed a petition against building a small, 14-mile pipeline near Philadelphia that will feed a proposed Birdsboro Power project, slated for construction in 2018. Birdsboro Power is a proposed 488-megawatt natural gas-fired electric plant in Birdsboro (Berks County), to be built by EmberClear with major backing by two Japanese companies..

New York DEC 401 Certification Authority on the Precipice?

… 

New York DEC has, once again, been put on notice from a federal court, ruling FERC has the right to issue 401 certifications regardless of their denials.

A new threat against the New York Dept. of Environmental Conservation’s authority over pipeline projects is coming from yet another federal court. Last month MDN brought you the huge news that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit dismissed a lawsuit brought by the Millennium Pipeline against the NY DEC for delaying a decision to authorize a 9-mile pipeline Millennium wants to build from their main pipeline to an under-construction natgas-fired electric plant in Orange County, NY, called the Valley Lateral Project.

Which may, at first blush, seem like a defeat. It was anything but a defeat. The justices, in their decision, said that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has the right and responsibility to step back in and issue the water crossing permits themselves, overruling the NY DEC, if FERC so chooses.

Scranton Times Advice to Act on Methane All Wrong

External Affairs Coordinator, Cabot Oil & Gas

 

The Scranton Times-Tribute recently criticized the Think About Energy series in an editorial titled Act on Methane, but their facts are all wrong.

Recently the Scranton Times-Tribune published an editorial titled Act on Methane. I found this editorial to be a disservice to their readership. Not only did it undermine the educational purpose of the “Think About Energy” series, but it all grossly misrepresents methane emissions from Pennsylvania’s natural gas industry.

Shale Rejuvenating Small Town America One Play at a Time

Managing Editor, Oilman Magazine

… 

The shale play is breathing new life into Small Town America bringing along jobs, investments in the local community and a new sense of pride.

The oil industry has always had a stunning fascination with numbers.

To the casual observer, it may at times seem that the oil and gas industry’s love of numbers supersedes all else. When most newsworthy topics about the industry find their way to print, there’s invariably a number somewhere leading the story, inexorably answering the key questions: “how much?” or “how many?”

CEGEN Delivers Green Energy And It Involves Natural Gas!

CEGEN Green Energy System is creating clean, affordable power for natural gas compression stations using nothing more than airflow from a cooling fan.

Sometimes an idea come along and makes you think “why didn’t I think of that?” So simple in its workings that you are sure it has been done before, but turns out it hasn’t. I’m lucky enough to be working with a group of people that have one of these ideas, one that has now been pilot tested with a full-size unit and is now proven for market, and it is exciting to say the least! This full-size, first unit off the assembly line at a site near Calgary.

New England Sleeps As Gentry Class Fractivists Steal It Blind

… 

New England is facing a bleak energy future according to its electric grid operator. Gentry class fractivists are stealing it blind as they kill pipelines.

Last December, Spectra Energy pushed the pause button on their Access Northeast Pipeline project, a roughly $3 billion project in New England to connect four existing pipeline systems (with enhancements). These included the Texas Eastern, Algonquin Gas Transmission, Iroquois and Maritimes & Northeast Pipelines. Spectra’s original strategy was to bring natural gas to New England by cutting deals with electric companies who need the gas to produce cheaper electricity at their natgas-fired power generation plants. However, gentry class fractivists came out in force against the plan, (sadly) aided and abetted by Spectra’s competitors, and those plans are now in ruins with three states blocking any such plans.

Banning Fracking Puts PC Politics Before Local Benefits

….
….  

States which ban fracking, such as Maryland and New York, are denying their citizens the rewards and local benefits that come with shale development.

The economy-wide, macro-scale benefits of hydraulic fracturing have been well-documented and are indeed palpable in our everyday experiences in the form of noticeably more affordable energy. With the influx of shale oil on the market, for example, we’re seeing lower gasoline prices this summer than we have in over a decade. The national average is currently around $2.25-per-gallon—$1.30 less than it was three years ago. Multiplied by the 140 billion barrels of gasoline American drivers use each year, this means a total savings of $180 billion than can be put to use elsewhere in our economy.

Those Who Would “Protect the Children” Endanger Them

Keep It Grounded In Fact
(American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers)

  

There are none more threatening to the lives of children than the voices of extremism who would destroy life as we know it to “protect the children.”

Anti-pipeline activist Cherri Foytlin—state director of Bold Louisiana and one of the organizers of a new “resistance camp” protesting construction of the Bayou Bridge Pipeline—has vowed that the activists will “use their bodies to protect their children” if the pipeline is approved.

This is just the latest of many examples of the “protect the children” theme that is an ironic mainstay of the anti-pipeline “Keep It in the Ground” movement. It’s ironic because if these extremists ever did succeed in keeping oil and natural gas in the ground, the children would be the first to suffer the fatal consequences of their absurd philosophy.
