The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM talked about the EPA’s new methane rules, pipelines, struggling upstate NY jobs and much more last week.
Every Saturday, Kevin Lynn of Linde Corporation and I co-host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas.
The Shale Gas News is typically broadcast live and our August 22nd program (click above) covered the following new territory (see news excerpts below):
- E.P.A. Announces New Rules to Cut Methane Emissions. The proposals would cost the industry up to $420 million to carry out by 2025, but that there would be savings of as much as $550, bringing a net benefit of as much as $150 million.
- The One Graph that Exposes the EPA Lie re Methane Regulation. Cow farts, otherwise referred to as “enteric fermentation” represent 16% of all methane emissions, and “animal waste” (i.e. cow manure) represents another 5%.
- Highway funding critical to Marcellus Shale: Mike Butler. The formation accounts for about 36 percent of U.S. shale gas production and more than 18 percent of the country’s dry gas production, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
- Pipelines to lucrative Midwest markets welcomed by shale gas drillers. Producers who cannot get their gas on the few lines leading from Pennsylvania to Chicago don’t get that better price.
- When Will There be Enough Pipelines in the Marcellus/Utica? Without pipeline infrastructure, shale drilling shuts down. Which is why it is vital these pipelines get built.
- In Northeast Pa., gas and power march together. Horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing in the Marcellus Shale has turned U.S. gas markets upside down. Now, it is spreading to the electric power industry and Northeast Pennsylvania is the epicenter of that change.
- After Gov. Cuomo Bans Fracking, NY Jobs Report Shows a Struggling Upstate. Cuomo’s decision risks up to 54,000 fracking-related New York jobs, jobs that don’t exist now, but could have been generated with the approval of various projects in the future.
