PA Petrochemical Manufacturing Growth Potential Is Staggering

A new study out from HIS Markit shows that Pennsylvania has abundant opportunities in petrochemical manufacturing thanks to Marcellus and Utica Shale.

Marcellus Shale Coalition shared this post with Well Said Cabot, regarding a recent report by IHS Markit regarding prospects for the petrochemical and manufacturing industries in Pennsylvania.

With the right policies, according to a new report by IHS Markit, the Commonwealth has the opportunity to realize a new wave of job-creating petrochemical manufacturing growth. In fact, the report released this week concludes that Pa. natural gas liquids production could attract four more ethane crackers in addition to Shell’s project in Beaver County and up to $3.7 billion in added investments..

The End of Fracking But for the Shouting?

LNG - Nick Grealy ReportsNick Grealy

….
….

Nick Grealy explains why we should stop using the fracking word and simply call it natural gas; to concentrate on the product not the process.

This may not be the last post at No Hot Air, but it will be close enough. Within the next few weeks I’ll be concentrating on London Local Energy, and I may or may not have a blog there.

Going through a new door is a good time to understand what has happened in the past. I’ve had a ringside seat at the greatest energy transformation since the light bulb.  I’ve been here talking about shale before anyone had ever heard of Josh Fox and Gasland.  I was here when the “conventional” industry said shale would never work: it was too expensive, the decline rates were too high, it was just a flash in the pan.

….
…. 

A recent lawsuit filed led by the NRDC  is asking the courts to force gas companies to disclose fracking fluid trade secrets which are already widely known. 

The world of intellectual property rights allows for the protection of trade secrets. These secrets are the stuff of legends. Some claim that only two people in the world know the Coca-Cola formula and they are not allowed to fly at the same time.

Fractivist Journalism and Its Proficiency with Fake News

…  

Fractivist journalism is one gigantic exercise in fake news – fake fracking news that is – as a story on a University of Guelph methane study illustrates.

Fake news seems to be enjoying quite a run these days, but there are no better examples than those provided by fractivist journalism. There are only a handful of reporters regularly reporting on fracking issues who bother to even attempt being objective. Most are in the model of StateImpactPA, a fractivist shill effort financed by the Heinz and Haas families to serve as an echo chamber for the work of sister entities such as the Clean Air Council, Delaware Riverkeeper, et al who are financed by the same families. There are numerous others as well and a loyal reader of this blog who happens to be a fractivist sent me an article yesterday that very much falls into the same category.

Fracking Is the Energy Sector Environmental Miracle Drug

…  

Energy related CO2 emissions just keep dropping thanks to natural gas use made possible by fracking. It’s the environmental miracle drug of the energy sector.

Today in Energy, one of the few governmental programs that actually delivers, is the dispensary of everything worth knowing about the energy industry. Yesterday’s story is no exception. Titled “U.S. energy-related CO2 emissions fell 1.7% in 2016,” it tells the story made possible by fracking; the continuing decline in carbon emissions.

Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week we had Nicole Jacobs from Energy In Depth as a guest.

IMG Midstream Does Enviro Friendly Tiny Power Plants

… 


IMG Midstream plans to build 25 tiny Marcellus powered electric plants which will provide electricity for Washington, D.C., and 13 states including PA.

MDN first told you about IMG Midstream in August 2014. At the time, IMG was proposing to build seven “tiny” natural gas-fired electric plants–each plant producing on the order of 20-22 megawatts of electricity (enough to power 13,000 homes). IMG added a couple of more to their plans in November 2014. The beauty of IMG’s tiny natgas electric plants is that they are really small–about the size of a basketball court; they produce almost no air pollution; and they are quiet. It’s a really cool concept.

Torpedo Blows Up in Grant Township’s Face

CELDF - report on Mora countyTom Shepstone
Shepstone Management Company, Inc.

 

Grant Township let the CELDF use it as a torpedo against state and Federal law but the thing just turned back and blew up in the faces of Township taxpayers.

Last month I wrote about how the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) was all “about seizing the municipality and turning it like a torpedo up against the state and Federal structure of law.” That’s the mantra of CELDF’s never-had-a-real-job, spoiled child leader, Tom Linzey, who takes money from other useful idiot trust-funders running wealthy foundations and uses it to manipulate still other useful idiot local elected officials into doing the work of his infantile campaign to overthrow American government. Poor Grant Township, Indiana County, bought into the CELDF lies, allowed itself to be used as one of those torpedoes and it just turned back on them and blew up in their faces.

Northern Access Permit Denied by Prince Corruptocrat?

…  

NaturalGasNOW is hearing Governor Andrew Cuomo, Prince Corruptocrat, the bully, has denied yet another pipeline permit – for the Northern Access Pipeline.

There’s no confirmation as yet, but NaturalGasNOW is being told Prince Corruptocrat —Andrew Cuomo, Governor of the Emporer State — has, yet again, injected himself into a what should be a routine permitting process and denied a 401 water quality certification for the Northern Access Pipeline. If this turns out to be true, it will confirm precisely what Rep. Chris Collins, Congressman from Western New York, just said about the man-child known here as Corruptocrat:

“Let’s call it out for what he is. He’s a thug. He’s a bully. He’s an extortionist. He’s a blackmailer. He wants all the authority,”

Well, yes, it seems so.
