External Affairs Coordinator, Cabot Oil & Gas
The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM and 1510 AM, talked about renewable energy, Exxon, green initiatives and much more last week.
Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week we had Mike Krancer Senior Counsel at Blank Rome LLP as a guest.
The Shale Gas News, typically, is broadcast live. On the March 11th show (click above), we covered the following new territory (see news excerpts below):
- Senate strikes down BLM planning rule. The U.S. Senate struck down a procedural rule Tuesday that has taken center stage in a political push to diminish federal oversight of public lands. Repealing the Bureau of Land Management’s BLM 2.0 has shaken some of its advocates, who argue it would have increased the public’s participation in how public lands are managed in the West.
- California Senate leader puts 100% renewable energy on the table in new legislation. It wasn’t just talk — Senate leader Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) is proposing legislation that would require California to generate all of its electricity from renewable sources. The measure, SB 584, was introduced without fanfare before last week’s deadline for new proposals in the Capitol.
- DU won’t divest from oil and gas, but board approves new green initiatives. University of Denver trustees have rejected a student-led request to pull investments from oil, natural gas and coal companies from the private school’s $620 million endowment.
- Exxon to invest $20 billion on U.S. Gulf Coast refining projects. Exxon Mobil Corp, the world’s largest publicly traded oil producer, said on Monday it would invest $20 billion through 2022 to expand its chemical and oil refining plants on the U.S. Gulf Coast.
- OH Court Rules Landmen Need to be Licensed Real Estate Brokers. We know this is an important story, and we know that some (many?) MDN readers will be interested. But this is one of those rare cases where we just can’t get our heads around the scope and importance of the story–and who it really affects.
