The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM “The Talker,” talked about pipelines, mine drainage, media reversals 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.
The Shale Gas News is typically broadcast live and this past Saturday’s program, the podcast of which is AVAILABLE HERE, covered the following new territory (see news excerpts below) and included an interview with Gina Suydam from the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce regarding their upcoming Energy & Education Expo and John Coleman, a Sustainability and Tech Manager at Ford on the subject of CNG vehicles:
- Reversal: Media discredits Penn State water contamination study. The mask has been ripped off fractivist liars by mainstream media outlets including the Associated Press, USA Today, the International Business Timesand (yes) The New York Times.
- Mine drainage treatment system shows promise with fracking waste in Clinton Township. Sharon, PA – based Winner Water Services set up pilot operations to show its process can treat mine drainage for use in hydraulic fracturing.
- Gov. Wolf should support shale jobs, not jeopardize them. “Instead of having to move for rewarding, family-sustaining jobs, we were able to stay in Western Pennsylvania mainly because of the shale industry moving in.”
- Low gas prices leads company to push for innovation. “Anyone who needs to budget fuel costs, you can’t do that with gasoline. It’s impossible. It’s so volatile. But with natural gas, it has been a steady line. There’s no fluctuation in it.”
- GAO: flaring of natural gas is costing taxpayers millions of dollars, adding to harmful greenhouse gas emissions, a congressional investigation has found.
- More Marcellus Shale gas for Philly: Texas Eastern Pipeline expansion. A new pipeline expansion project that will bring more cheap, abundant and wholesomely fracked Marcellus Shale gas to the Philadelphia, PA area was announced late last year by Spectra.
- Washington Gas $126M deal to bring Marcellus gas to DC Suburbs announced. A deal was announced last week to purchase Marcellus Shale natural gas directly from 22 producing wells in Pennsylvania to be used to sell to Washington Gas’ customers in Virginia.
