New York’s Renewable Plan Will Create Energy Poor

Cuomo's Legacy - Dick DowneyRichard Downey

Governor Cuomo’s renewable plan for New York State’s energy will surely fail, as it has in Germany, making its people energy poor.

November’s election and the incoming President’s appointees have seeded the clouds in Central New York for a rain of Letters to the Editor regarding gas. The letters run the table on the evils of gas development (it’s-the-end-of-the-world) and Constitution Pipeline (it’s-the-end-of-the-world, only-closer.) The writers don’t believe gas will be our bridge fuel to the future.

Sorry to disappoint these folks, but natural gas is bridging the future right now, even as they’re putting pen to paper. Gas is providing this bridge without massive subsidies and hidden costs.

Worried About Russian Gas? Then Get Fracking!

LNG - Nick Grealy ReportsNick Grealy

….
….

Russian gas is moving into Europe and the UK because both have been slow to the draw on fracking. Energy security depends upon both finally getting to it.

UK and EU natural gas this winter is increasingly supplied not by US LNG as some had predicted, but by slight increases in North Sea production from both the UK and Norway sectors and, for the first time, entry via a long involved supply chain of Russian gas.

Sunbury Projects Show What Natural Gas Is Accomplishing

… 

The completion of a UGI pipeline project in Sunbury, Pennsylvania illustrates just how much natural gas is doing for Pennsylvania residents and consumers.

In December 2014 Pennsylvania utility company UGI pre-filed an application to build a new 35-mile, 20-inch pipeline to feed a natgas-powered electric generating plant being built in Snyder County, Pennsylvania. The project, called the Sunbury Pipeline, was estimated to cost $150 million–money that goes into the local economy. It took long enough, but in May 2016 the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) finally approved the project. UGI broke ground on the project in August. Here it is December, and the Sunbury Pipeline is done and expected to go live in January. That’s just the beginning of the good news.

A CO2 Feature? A Glimpse Into Our Natural Gas Future.

NED Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Turning a bug into a feature is an age-old marketing technique but, in the case of natural gas, a CO2 feature is reality combined with much future potential.

A Department of Energy “Request for Information” (RFI) issued a month ago provides a fascinating glimpse into the future of natural gas. It’s exciting. What especially caught my attention was the discussion surrounding what should be called the CO2 feature of natural gas. It has undeniably lowered CO2 emissions through natural gas fuel conversions but the future potential may be even greater.

“No Fracking Anywhere” Doesn’t Help the Earth; It Hurts It!

LNG - Nick Grealy ReportsNick Grealy

….
….

Ill-informed fractivists shouting “No Fracking Anywhere” or “Keep It in the Ground” do nothing to help the Earth; rather, their stupid slogans only hurt it.

Today, Ryedale Against Fracking and others are protesting in London to support the Friends of the Earth case against North Yorkshire County Council’s approval of the Third Energy project to use fracking on a 20-year old current “conventional” gas well pad.

They started with a demonstration outside chanting “No Fracking in North Yorkshire. No Fracking Anywhere.” Some of these protestors are evidently merely selfish, content to displace gas production to others while happy to ignore their own consumption. Others mistakenly see more natural gas production as part of a wider issue that makes it harmful for climate change.

Clean Burning Panda Patriot Goes on Line

Panda Power has now brought the Panda Patriot plant on line; a super-efficient, clean-burning, high-performing energy producer for the modern world.

Last month Panda Power Funds held the official commissioning ceremony to launch the operation of Panda Liberty, a 829-megawatt Marcellus gas-fired electric generating plant in Asylum Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania). It was the world’s first built-from-scratch electric generating plant built specifically to use Marcellus Shale gas.

Yesterday, Panda Power commissioned the world’s second built-from-scratch-to-use-Marcellus-gas electric generating plant: Panda Patriot.

We Have a New President: How Will it Affect Energy and Environmental Issues?

Hydraulic FracturingRichard Goodwin

West Palm Beach, Florida

 

Energy and environmental issues have long been solved according to political correctness instead of by experts; with our new President that may change.

The results of 2016 Presidential Election – Republican President [without elected political experience but a successful billionaire developer and entertainment entrepreneur] and Republican Majority in Senate and House of Representatives [enabling appointment of moderate-conservative Supreme Court Justices] – reflects a victory for the private sector and a blow to political correctness. Given this dominance of political philosophy in all branches of government, forthcoming federal legislation and actions should apply fact-based, sound business and economic principles plus peer-review science to address our Energy and Environmental Issues.

Pennsylvania’s New Destructive Energy Policies

Gas Exports - GordonTomb Reports Gordon Tomb
Senior Fellow, Commonwealth Foundation for Public Policy Alternatives

 …

 

The new energy policies of Pennsylvania include forced renewables that will take billions of dollars to support and destroy the economy and jobs as a by-product.

Government policies that direct the production and use of energy are a disaster for Pennsylvania. They have been a disaster, they are a disaster, and unless something changes, they will be a disaster.

There’s NOAA Denying It: Methane Issue Isn’t One

delaware riverkeeper - Jim Willis reports

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

The lengths to which some warmists will go to blame natural gas for methane issues is amazing but there’s NOAA denying the industry isn’t the issue.

NOAA–the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration–contains some of the biggest kool-aid drinking man-made global warming fanatics on the planet. So we found it interesting that the mighty NOAA has just released new research that finds yes, so-called “fugitive” methane that escapes into the atmosphere is up–way up. And yes, oil and gas drilling contributes WAY MORE to the fugitive methane problem “than previously thought.” And yes, methane leaks from fossil fuel development represents something like 20-25% of of the total “problem.”

But then those same researchers, in little teeny tiny type add this (emphasis added):

However, the findings also confirm other work by NOAA scientists that conclude fossil fuel facilities are not directly responsible for the increased rate of global atmospheric methane emissions measured in the atmosphere since 2007.

That is, while the shale revolution has grown exponentially over the past 10 years, and while the rate of fugitive methane has grown during that same period–the growth has NOT come from oil and gas development. Instead, it’s coming from rice paddies and cow farts/burps.

Unnecessary Methane Regulations “A War on Natural Gas”

Tony Ventello just told Congress new EPA methane regulations would hinder a natural gas industry that has already reduced emissions.

The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space and Technology held a hearing in Washington D.C. on September 15 to discuss the impact of the EPA’s recent methane regulations. It was, appropriately titled as A Solution In Search of a Problem: EPA’s Methane Regulations.

Tony Ventello, Executive Director of the Progress Authority (Bradford and Susquehanna Counties, Pennsylvania) traveled to the capital to be a witness. He was joined by Erik Milito of the American Petroleum Institute, Dr. Bernard Weinstein of the Maguire Energy Institute of the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University and Elgie Holstein of Environmental Defense Fund.
