The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM talked about waterless fracking, pipelines, buyouts and much more this week.
Every Saturday, Kevin Lynn of Linde Corporation and I co-host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas.
- NY Landowners File to Frack Horizontal Well w/Waterless Tech. The wells will not use water for fracking–and therefore, according to the landowners, avoid the ban on high volume fracking recently imposed by Andrew Cuomo.
- Luzerne County Activist Dropped from Pipeline Task Force. “After further consideration of the overall composition of the Task Force, however, I have decided against adding you as a member,” DEP Secretary John Quigley said in the July 2 email.
- Locals Chosen for Wolf’s Pipeline Task Force. An Archbald environmental lawyer, a Wilkes University biologist and a Honesdale agronomist will join Gov. Tom Wolf’s pipeline task force.
- Natural Gas Powering Our Economy. We are producing more natural gas than all but one other state. What many Pennsylvanians may not know is that we are also second in the nation in total electric generation.
- FUD Splatter: PA IFO Says Lower Impact Fee Revenue Coming in 2015. The IFO says this year the impact fee is on track to raise the least amount of money it has raised since introduction. Somewhere between $14 million and $33 million less (6-13% less).
- Fracsandphobia for Some Who Live Near Keystone Sanitary Landfill. Some folks who live near the Keystone Sanitary Landfill outside of Scranton, PA have a phobia over sand that may be hauled to the facility.
- Williams Continues to Resist ET Offer, Talks with Other Suitors. Williams is now shopping itself and has “reached out” to more than 15 potential buyers, two of which have signed the standstill agreement and are, right now, poring over Williams’ books
- The Great American Natural Gas Surge. Americans already know about the U.S. natural gas revolution based on shale, with production up from 58 Bcf/day in 2008 to 75 Bcf/day today. This incremental increase has been so large that, if standing as its own nation, our shale gas production surge since 2008 alone would be the world’s 3rd largest natural gas supplier in the world, behind Russia and the U.S. in supplies not from shale.
