The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, 1510 AM and Sundays on YesFM, talked about CNG, the Atlantic Sunrise, Chesapeake production and much more last week.

The Shale Gas News has grown to THREE stations! We are now broadcasting with YesFM. YesFM will be airing the full 60 minute version of the program on Sunday mornings. YesFM broadcasts primarily in Sullivan and Bradford counties, with some ancillary coverage in neighboring counties and even over the border into New York.

Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week we replayed an interview with Scott Bush, VP, Industrial & Facilities Business Unit Leader at Borton-Lawson from this past January, and an interview with Representative Stephen Bloom of the 199th District from this past February.

No Shame: “Youth Climate Intervenors” a NRDC Gang Gimmick

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

  

There’s no limit to how low the NRDC gang and friends will stoop to oppose oil and gas development but “Youth Climate Intervenors” is new and really low.

On day three of the evidentiary hearings to determine whether Enbridge Energy can construct a new oil pipeline in Minnesota to replace its aging Line 3 pipeline, Enbridge’s senior manager of land services was cross-examined by a 16-year-old high school student who has “been a competitive swimmer for eight years … loves music and plays the guitar and violin.”

The rookie barrister is one of 13 people under the age of 25—collectively known as the Youth Climate Intervenors—who have been granted status as legal intervenors in the Enbridge case. This means these young activists can submit testimony, call expert witnesses to the stand, cross-examine other parties’ witnesses, and request information of other parties through discovery.

Fake Fractivist News from Reuters Puts the Lie to “Freedom from Bias”

Reuters says “freedom from bias.. shall at all times be fully preserved” but the news service’s reporting of fake fractivist news says just the opposite.

A news story out today from Reuters illustrate just how much fake fractivist news there is out there and how incredible stealthily it’s done. Titled simply as “U.S. Justice pledges to prosecute activists who damage pipelines,” it sounds innocuous enough but a close reading indicates its anything but that. It’s biased to the very core.

New Technologies are Transforming the Digital Oil Field

Fractivists

New and emerging technologies are continuously expanding boundaries and improving efficiency and safety in today’s oil field. 

This past week, I was given a stack of DVDs filled with client videos that needed to be reviewed. Each DVD contained about 2 gigabytes worth of data and was, at the time, the most effective way of storing this much information. I was able, with a few clicks of the mouse, to transferred 5 years worth of such data onto a micro USB storage device that had to be taped to a larger item to ensure I didn’t lose it in the shuffle.

Natural Gas NOW readers pass along a lot of stuff every week about natural gas, fractivist antics, emissions, renewables, and other news relating to energy.

This week I decided to clean out my e-mail box of great material sent along by Natural Gas NOW readers. It covers a lot of territory and some of it’s not that new anymore but it’s all great stuff highlighting the power of natural gas and the absurdity of fractivism. Check out the links below

The news on Pennsylvania natural gas keeps getting better, production reaches new highs, and pipelines are coming online to deliver the natural gas.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) published their weekly natural gas update for week ending November 1, showing Pennsylvania’s natural gas production has reached a new high. Pennsylvania’s natural gas production has increased dramatically since 2013 with an increase of 80%. Marcellus Shale and fracking have boosted Pennsylvania up as one of the top producers of natural gas in the nation.

Job-Killing Sierra Club Killed in Court, Atlantic Sunrise Proceeds

The job-killing Sierra Club and other gentry class shills who stopped the Atlantic Sunrise construction for a moment have themselves been killed in court.

When the DC Court of Appeals issued a stay the other day that put 2,500 Atlantic Sunrise workers out of jobs, it seemed a bit strange. The DC Court has not been particularly friendly toward the attempts of the Sierra Club and other gentry class fractivist shills to overrule FERC with rehearsing requests and the like, although it’s made some weird decisions in other respects.

The latest delay maneuver pulled in the Atlantic Sunrise was frivolous on its face, after all. But, the Court inexplicably issued the stay anyway so, it said, to have time to review the matter. Now, faster than a speeding bullet, it has dissolved the stay.  The Williams motion to dismiss was particularly effective, it seems, and there may be a reason why

Here’s How to Lift Up Puerto Rico with Our Natural Gas

The devastation that hit Puerto Rico is an opportunity to build a new energy future for the Commonwealth with our natural gas, helping us at the same time.

There was a Congressional hearing the other day focused on the efforts to help Puerto Rico recover from the recent hurricane damage that so devastated the island. Something very interesting came out of the discussion that could be the basis of some great initiatives of benefit to just about everyone. It’s all about LNG and how shipping the stuff produced on the mainland could be a big boon to our fellow Americans from the Island of Enchantment as well as those who live in our rural areas where shale gas is produced.

Food and Water Watch Is Conning Taxpayers in Every Way

Food and Water Watch is a completely radical organization that is conning taxpayers by using loopholes in the tax code to operate politically as a charity.

Yesterday, one of our readers sent me a news story about Chester County, Pennsylvania election results. The Philadelphia Inquirer article, written by Andrew Maykuth, noted “Opponents of Sunoco Pipeline’s Mariner East project won seats on the governing boards of two Chester County townships Tuesday in elections that had become referendums on the controversial pipeline.” While that was hardly surprising, what was disturbing was what came later in the story; a tale of how a supposed public charity called Food and Water Watch had deeply involved itself in those elections by using some subterfuge the IRS and others, including far too many in the oil and gas industry, are only too happy to ignore.

… 

A frivolous Sierra Club lawsuit has forced an Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline work stoppage, putting 2,500 people out of work and to the unemployment office.

Just before the holidays, thousands of workers who were working on the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline project have been escorted to the unemployment office–courtesy the odious Sierra Club. Yesterday we brought you the sad news that the Sierra Club’s lawsuit has stopped work on the $3 billion pipeline project.
