Martians, Backed by Carpetbagger Riverkeeper, Try to Stymie Rex

delaware riverkeeper - Jim Willis reports

The Delaware Riverkeeper is giving legal help to a group of radical parents (Martians) against Rex Energy in an area nowhere near their river basin. Why? 

MDN previously reported on the injustice happening in Butler County, PA where a handful of anti-drilling parents from the Mars School District (“Martians”), backed by money and legal help from Philadelphia Big Green groups Delaware Riverkeeper and Clean Air Council, have filed frivolous lawsuit after frivolous lawsuit. The effort is aimed at denying landowners in Middlesex Township revenue from legally permitted drilling.

Brittany Ramos sat down with John Papso of Cabot and discussed the moment he realized the mammoth production they had with their first horizontal well.

We recently posted an internal memo from Cabot’s President, Chairman and CEO, Dan Dinges, to employees congratulating them on several milestones.

In case you missed it:

  • Cabot spudded its first Marcellus well, the Teel 1, on 9/26/06
  • In the last 18 months we have hit these milestones in the Marcellus:
    • 500 wells drilled
    • 10,000 frac stages completed
    • 2.5 TCF cumulative production

Pipelines are Critical for Natural Gas Transportation

Pipelines are the critical component needed to transport natural gas from production areas to homes and businesses safely and efficiently.

The abundant production coming from the Marcellus isn’t a secret – in fact we just posted about Cabot’s recent milestones including a cumulative production of 2.5 TCF. But what tends to get lost is just how the natural gas makes its way from the wellhead to the burner tip in your home or business. WNEP recently joined George Stark and Jim Scheel, Senior Vice President for Williams Northeast to talk more about the safe, reliable way this natural gas is being transported: pipelines.

Judge Calls Out Dakota Access Troublesome Protesters

A Federal Judge calls out the criminals and hooligans of the Dakota Access, saying they have a vastly different agenda than the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

The extent of the hoax the Tribe and its minions are perpetrating on all of us at Lake Oahe has been duly documented by Judge Boasberg of the D.C. District Court already. Now another federal court has documented the extent of what Judge Hovland of the North Dakota Federal District Court correctly calls “the mindless and senseless criminal activity of the hooligans that chose to accompany the protest movement” being instigated and acted out by a small but very fractious percentage of the entourage out at the Lake Oahe site along the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The Dakota Access and Lake Oahe Deception

Partner, Leader – Energy, Petrochemical & Natural Resources Practice Group at Blank Rome LLP

 

The controversy from the Sioux Tribe over the Dakota Access pipeline & Lake Oahe have been nothing more than deception, proven by a Federal Judge findings.

Here’s the extent of the grand deception being perpetrated by the Tribe and their sponsors, including their, law counsel so-called “Earthjustice,” on all of us regarding the Lake Oahe manufactured situation on the Dakota Access Pipeline route as dissected by Judge Boasberg of the D.C. District Court (an Obama appointee) in his September 9, 2016 opinion:

Natural Gas and Renewables Need Each Other

LNG - Nick Grealy ReportsNick Grealy

….
….

Fractivists act as if natural gas and renewables are natural enemies – they’re not. They need each other, a fact often obscured by political correctness.

It’s long been proposed by climate scientists worldwide and several US environmentalists that natural gas and renewables are natural partners.  Yet, the accepted wisdom, is the complete opposite.  Attempts to point it out have been met with various levels of scorn or derision by anti fracking advocates.  The few who have proposed the idea have been mocked and ridiculed as greenwashers by many groups who themselves are strong advocates of renewables.  It’s an unfortunate meme that is long past its sell by date.

French Shale Gas? Well, Yes, Maybe!

LNG - Nick Grealy ReportsNick Grealy
Administrator of NoHotAir/ReImagineGas Blog

….
….

France’s unsustainable hypocrisy on fracking will very likely, per inevitably, lead to the development of French shale gas with implications for New York.

There is a special wound on my heart marked Gaz de Schiste: French shale gas. Fortunately, and contemporaneously with the UK, which seems to be finally stirring, the debate will inevitably evolve in France.  There is a particular French term “La Rentrée” which signifies not only the return to school, but to business and cultural life in general. It will be an especially political one this year in the primary campaigns to get candidates this year, and the first and second rounds of the Presidential Election in April and May.

I’m interested in the commercial aspects of the French shale question for France itself, but also for the natural gas industry advocacy campaign world-wide. Of all the outdated objections to shale,  “France has banned shale gas”  is the one that may be as impermanent as the others.  There’s only two people of any consequence  keeping the ban going.  One is President Hollande and the other is Mme Royal, his former partner and mother to his children.  For reasons totally unconnected with shale, it’s unlikely that either of them will re-enter in 2017.  That will then help shale in France, the UK, New York State and everywhere else.  Here’s hoping, here’s trying and heres’s waiting.

Pennsylvania Fractivists Go Over the Cliff

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

Jim Willis
Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

Pennsylvania fractivists have completely and utterly lost it. They now oppose the conversions of coal plants to natural gas that have slashed CO2 emissions.

Indisputable fact #1: With the increased use of natural gas to generate electricity, the air is getting cleaner. That has been proven by both private and government studies.

Indisputable fact #2: With the increased use of natural gas to generate electricity, less carbon dioxide is emitted (for those who believe in the fairy tale of man-made global warming).

If you’re a global warmer type, you ought to love natural gas use in electric plants for those two reasons alone. However, so twisted is the thinking of radical anti-fossil fuelers, they can’t bring themselves to endorse natural gas because it’s an evil, hated, awful fossil fuel.

Purists vs. Problem Solvers, As Shale Revolution Changes All

LNG - Nick Grealy ReportsNick Grealy
Administrator of NaturalGas2.0NoHotAir and ShaleGasInfo Blogs

….
….

While the shale revolution offers to make real environmental differences and solve real problems, ideologically blinded purists demand 100% solutions.

The US shale revolution is now going global via LNG. Countries that formerly would have chosen coal for power generation are now going gas.

“There are markets like Bangladesh and Pakistan where traditionally they would have gone with coal but now gas can be the cheaper option once you include the cost of new infrastructure,” LeLong of Goldman said. “You are seeing these energy poor countries often with poor credit ratings turning to LNG.”
