External Affairs Coordinator, Cabot Oil & Gas
The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday morning at 10 AM on 94.3 FM “The Talker,” talked about CO2 levels, TENORM, the Keystone XL and rig counts this week.
Every Saturday, Kevin Lynn of Linde Corporation and I co-host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas.
- Earth’s CO2 Levels Pass Global Warming “Milestone” and Nothing Happens… Atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide have averaged above 400 parts per million since the beginning of 2015, passing what climate scientists told is was the symbolic point of no return. Why do climate doom predictions keep falling by the wayside?
- Pennsylvania DEP Concludes a Radiation or TENORM Study… The results are in: The TENORM study concludes there is little possibility of harm to workers or the public regarding radiation exposure due to oil and gas operations.
- Methane Leaks and Fracking: Myths vs. Facts… With the White House’s announcement today on new methane regulations, here are the top five facts you may not know.
- Power Generation Biggest Driver for Expanded Natgas Use in 2015… We’re seeing more and more natural gas used in power generation, as we see more coal plants shut down, primarily to meet environmental regulations.
- Gas and Wind Represented the Bulk of New Power Generation Capacity Created in 2014… “Looking at 2014’s new capacity by fuel type, slightly more than half, or 7,902 MW, was gas-fired. Almost 92% of the new gas-fired capacity coming online was at combined-cycle facilities. A number of new gas plants were built as replacements to older, usually coal-fired units that were retired. Wind accounted for the second-largest amount of capacity added, almost 3,815 MW during the year.” Combined-cycle gas plants operate at much higher efficiency than wind facilities, however, meaning that gas represents the bulk of the actual power generation involved.
