External Affairs Coordinator, Cabot Oil & Gas
The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM talked about the Dimock Trial, methane emissions decrease, transforming NEPA 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 March 12th show (click above), we covered the following new territory (see news excerpts below):
- Pa. Gas Driller Case Nets Families $4.2M. A federal jury has awarded two couples nearly $4.25 million after finding one of the largest natural gas drillers in Pennsylvania polluted their well water.
- Super Secret Study Details Plan to Transform NEPA Using NatGas. The secret study is very specific in how the region can attract new businesses that use cheap Marcellus Shale gas. The Institute doesn’t want to give away their best thinking.
- Facebook Censors Dimock Trial Stories; Judge Tosses Part of Case. Facebook actually took down several posts, and locked down the FrackNation page on Facebook for 24 hours with a warning to cease and desist from posting new Dimock stories.
- Facebook Suspends FrackNation Page After Environmentalists Complain. The trial is effectively unraveling the activists’ cause. None of the claims made by the Ely family and the Hubert family — against Cabot Oil and Gas seem to be holding up to scrutiny.
- Dimock Trial: Lighting Tap Water on Fire Decades Before Drilling. Cabot called a local Dimock resident who spoke about lighting her water on fire just like they did in Gasland–decades before there was any natural gas drilling in the area.
- Dimock now: Where is the media? Where are the clowns? Families from Dimock, Pennsylvania are suing Cabot Oil & Gas with in hopes of a big payoff from pretending what is a natural condition is somehow will look like gas drilling negligence.
- Shale-related methane emissions continue to steeply drop. Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s own data a 13 percent drop in methane emissions even as gas production increased 50 percent year over year.
