The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM talked about the PA drilling moratorium, oil export veto threat, heating prices dropping 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. This week we had Aaron Kaufer and Tom Shepstone of NaturalGasNow.org as guests.
The Shale Gas News is typically broadcast live and our October 10th program (click above) covered the following new territory (see news excerpts below):
- Actor Mark Ruffalo Asks PA Gov Wolf to Enact Drilling Moratorium. His life changed when he was taken to a meeting in Pennsylvania with families that had been affected by chemicals from fracking roughly seven years ago. Yeah, right…
- Why the White House Should Rethink Its Oil Export Ban Veto Threat. As previously noted, lifting the ban will mean more jobs (as many as 859,000 annually), a stronger economy (as much as $1.8 trillion added to GDP), and lower gas prices.
- Shale Regions, Including in Eastern Ohio, Leading in GDP growth. The Wheeling, West Virginia, region had the country’s fifth-best economic growth rate last year.
- CNY Heating Prices Drop Low this Winter: Here’s a warm thought: Winter heating prices are dropping. The cost of natural gas is at its lowest point in perhaps 15 years.
- New York Increasingly Reliant on Natural Gas for Heat. In the last decade, New York has had the country’s biggest increase in the number of households using natural gas as a heating fuel source.
- Six Reasons Natural Gas Prices Are Staying Down. Another reason why natural gas prices in Europe are bound to remain subdued is the planned supply of U.S LNG to Europe.
- Liquefied Natural Gas to Take Place of Oil, Coal? “Natural gas will be the product of the future,” he said in an interview. “It will take the place of coal. It will take the place of oil. It will be a threat to the old empire.”.
