The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, 1510 AM and Sundays on YesFM, talked about opportunities for women in natural gas, CONSOL Energy, OH landowner lawsuit and much more last week.

The Shale Gas News has grown to THREE stations! We are now broadcasting with YesFM. YesFM will be airing the full 60 minute version of the program on Sunday mornings. YesFM broadcasts primarily in Sullivan and Bradford counties, with some ancillary coverage in neighboring counties and even over the border into New York.

Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week, as guests, we had Bob McGraw, Vice President at Linde Corporation and John Doyle, co-founder of Keep It Grounded in Fact.

Andrew Cuomo’s Dubious CO2 Goals and Failure to Produce

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.

Two-Faced Bill McKibben’s Amazing Affinity for Extremists

Bill McKibben is not the man he seems. He’s a Rockefeller shill who puts on a religious pose while demonstrating a rather astounding affinity for extremism.

Over and over again, Bill McKibben, keeps aligning himself with the most extreme people. I wrote about this tendency here and here. Now, another example has been brought to my attention by one of our regular readers and commenters, Karen Orlando, who recently sent me this January story about Bill McKibben’s embrace of Rising Tide (see stories here and here about them), which is a profoundly radical group. It is yet another demonstration of who Bill McKibben really is and it’s not pretty.

DEP Throws Taxpayer Money at Coal Lawyer to Punish Gas?

The PA Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP) wants to punish gas companies endlessly and is using taxpayer money to hire an expensive coal lawyer to help.

While this is old news, it is a continuing story, parts of which I only became recently aware. It’s all about the case of EQT Production Company v. Dept. of Environmental Protection – 485 M.D. 2014, which resulted in a Commonwealth Court decision supporting EQT in its challenge of an outrageous penalty DEP imposed for the company for a leak in one of its wastewater storage ponds.

The penalty was, effectively, a potentially never-ending one, despite the company’s remediation of the problem and Commonwealth Court said “whoa.” That’s the good news. The bad news is that DEP is appealing and using an expensive, outside, out-of-state high end law firm hired at taxpayer expense despite constant suggestions DEP has no money. Worse, the firm has represented big coal, which has every interest in making life miserable for gas companies operating in Pennsylvania.

Appalachia Region Shale Gas Is Key to Domestic Production

Natural Gas NOWConnie Mellin
Natural Gas NOW
“PAShaleAdvocate”

 

We can thank the Appalachia Region shale gas, mostly Marcellus and Utica, for the rapid increase in natural gas production we have seen in United States.

As the technology for hydraulic fracturing evolves and perfects, natural gas production increases. This is exactly what we are seeing now in in the Appalachia region. As a result, natural gas production from the Marcellus and Utica regions have increased tremendously since 2012, up by more than 14 billion cubic feet per day.  Drilling a natural gas well can be completed in a week with longer lateral lengths.  Where in just a few short years ago it would take a month and the lateral lengths were much shorter.

London Local Energy Tells Mayor A Fracking Ban Is Silly

LNG - Nick Grealy ReportsNick Grealy

….
….

Nick Grealy, CEO of London Local Energy, shares a letter he wrote to Mayor Sadiq Khan quashing his reasons to ban fracking in London.

People have asked whether this story concerns me:

Sadiq Khan will in effect ban fracking in London – and warns that extracting shale gas represents a toxic health risk.

In a controversial move, the London mayor will set out in plans to be published this week that councils across the capital should block the exploration, appraisal or production of shale gas via hydraulic fracturing, which sees rocks blasted with water to release the gas.

Robbery! DRBC Thieves Propose Grand Theft of Land

There’s a robbery in progress. The DRBC is engaged in a grand scheme to steal land out from underneath Wayne County and its citizenry with Tom Wolf’s help.

The Delaware River basin is a drinking water source, So, is the Susquehanna River basin. The Delaware River basin includes streams officially classified as “High Quality” and “Exceptional Value.” So does the Susquehanna River basin. Gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing have been permitted by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) for a decade in that basin. The SRBC says its “water quality monitoring network has not detected discernible impacts on the quality of the Basin’s water resources as a result of natural gas development.“ The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) is run by the same governing majority of members as the SRBC, but after sitting on the issue for the same decade, now wants us to believe this same practice is too dangerous for the Delaware River basin.

Those are the facts—the only facts needed to understand the nature of this crime—the robbery of Wayne County’s land and its future. The DRBC, which is nothing more than the SRBC with different hats, is engaged in this grand theft for one reason and one reason only; it thinks it can get away with it.

Florida Legislators Think Oil and Sunshine Don’t Mix

Florida legislators resist the economic oil boom and debate a fracking ban in their state believing that oil and sunshine don’t mix.

A recent commentary in the local press of Southwest Florida, suggested renewable energy is the future, but the author reluctantly resigned himself to the fact oil is the preferred energy source for now.

We may add that “now,” based on the pace of progress made in renewables such as solar, wind, geothermal, and biofuels, may well be the next century. The oil and gas industry has made great strides in finding, producing, and transporting hydrocarbons which has further extended the life and lowered the cost of these energy sources.
