RESOURCES

 


In a recent environmental report, Range Resources scored high by continuing to exceed regulatory requirements in methane management.

As You Sow, a nonprofit organization that promotes environmental and social corporate responsibility through shareholder advocacy recently released its annual report, Disclosing the Facts 2017: Transparency and Risk in Methane Emissions. The 2017 report took a new approach and focused on methane emissions management and reporting from some of the most active oil and gas producers. The investor report is designed to promote improved methane management and reporting practices among oil and gas producers.

China’s Gas Demand in Bid to Reduce Emissions Outpaces Its Production

K.J. Rodgers

….
…. 

China is putting all the cards on the table to reduce emissions with natural gas, but their demand is much higher than their production capacity.

China is the world’s largest emissions contributor. Images of smog clouding the daily lives of Chinese citizens have become a common scene in the country. It’s a very dreary view as people must walk about their day wearing a facemask – almost as if it has turned into a Chinese OSHA Requirement.

U.S. Carbon Dioxide Emissions Down Big-Time Since 2005

United States energy-related carbon dioxide emissions have drastically declined since 2005 as natural gas has replaced coal and oil energy sources.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has published a review of energy-related CO2 emissions and the news is great. Although the EIA saw a slight increase in natural gas emissions, due to increased consumption trends, the overall energy-related carbon dioxide emission levels are down. And expected to remain that way through 2019.

20 Gigawatts of New Natural Gas Generated Electricity Coming in 2018

Today In Energy reports some 20 gigawatts of new natural gas generated electricity is being added in 2018, with almost a third being built in Pennsylvania.

The shale revolution continues! Rural economic development. Cheap energy for urban America. Clean air for places such as New York City. Reduced emissions of just about everything. New manufacturing jobs. New STEM jobs. New natural gas infrastructure for small towns. Opportunities everywhere. All of this is brought home by a Today In Energy article from last week announcing some otherwise mundane news on natural gas generated electricity.

“We Were Wrong. Methane Isn’t So Bad After All. Sorry.”

"Environmentalists" - MarkindDaniel B. Markind, Esq.
Weir and Partners, LLP

 

An academic study on methane goes bad. Will anyone in the press notice? Dan Markind reports and reminds environmentalists to be careful what they wish for.

Earlier today, the Journal of Geophysics Research issued a retraction notice for an article it first published online on April 20, 2017.  In pertinent part, the retraction reads:

“The article, Ren, X., et al. (2017), “Methane remissions from the Marcellus Shale in southwestern Pennsylvania and West Virginia based on airborne measurements,” has been retracted by the authors because of an error in wind measurements used to calculate methane emissions from the southwest Marcellus Shale region.  The error was discovered by the authors in October 2017…The original wind measurements led to an overestimate of methane emissions from oil and natural gas operations. A reanalysis with corrected winds…is expected to reverse a conclusion of the paper, which had asserted that leakage from oil and natural gas extraction in this region results in a climate penalty compared to the use of coal….”

No, Natural Gas Isn’t the Source of Increased Methane Levels

K.J. Rodgers
Crownsville, Maryland  

….
…. 

The atmosphere is showing signs of increased methane, but contrary to popular belief, it is not natural gas nor fracking that is responsible.

Fractivists have been stretching to link fracking and natural gas to everything they can think of for years. The twisting of facts and intermingling emotions in their propaganda is 101 training for new members. It is almost as is if groups like the Food and Water Watch sit new hires in a dark broom closet and force them to watch some Wenonah Hauter training video on “How to Deceive the Public for Their Own Good.”

New Jersey Grows, Uses More Gas and Lowers Its CO2

PennFuture - Tom ShepstoneTom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

… 

New Jersey is getting a new governor. He’ll have to face the reality of growing energy needs. He will need natural gas to meet them and lower CO2 emissions.

About this time last year, I published a post here entitled “If New Jersey Likes Clean Air, It Should Like More Pipelines.” I noted how the state’s natural gas use had increased, especially for electric power generation, which had led to dramatically lower sulfur dioxide emissions associated with coal and oil. Since them, voters there have elected Phil Murphy as their new governor. He’s put Tom Steyer and Maya van Rossum on his transition team, signing onto the extremist fractivist agenda even before he’s elected. He ought to quietly take a step back, though. New Jersey is still growing, still using more gas and will still need those pipelines to move clean its air and lower CO2 emissions.

Andrew Cuomo’s Dubious CO2 Goals and Failure to Produce

natural gas boats - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Andrew Cuomo adopted big-time CO2 goals but performance to date and likelihood of success suggest a different strategy is needed — one involving natural gas.

An article yesterday in Politico New York, written from the premise Governor Cuomo just isn’t getting the job done in achieving his CO2 goals, reveals more than the writer perhaps hoped. Titled “Challenges Loom for Cuomo’s Environmental Promises,” the post by Marie French is written in a “hope he can get it done, but…” vein that misses the big point, yet brings out some great ones.
