Scranton Times Advice to Act on Methane All Wrong

The Scranton Times-Tribute recently criticized the Think About Energy series in an editorial titled Act on Methane, but their facts are all wrong.

Recently the Scranton Times-Tribune published an editorial titled Act on Methane. I found this editorial to be a disservice to their readership. Not only did it undermine the educational purpose of the “Think About Energy” series, but it all grossly misrepresents methane emissions from Pennsylvania’s natural gas industry.

Shale Rejuvenating Small Town America One Play at a Time

Managing Editor, Oilman Magazine

… 

The shale play is breathing new life into Small Town America bringing along jobs, investments in the local community and a new sense of pride.

The oil industry has always had a stunning fascination with numbers.

To the casual observer, it may at times seem that the oil and gas industry’s love of numbers supersedes all else. When most newsworthy topics about the industry find their way to print, there’s invariably a number somewhere leading the story, inexorably answering the key questions: “how much?” or “how many?”

CEGEN Delivers Green Energy And It Involves Natural Gas!

CEGEN Green Energy System is creating clean, affordable power for natural gas compression stations using nothing more than airflow from a cooling fan.

Sometimes an idea come along and makes you think “why didn’t I think of that?” So simple in its workings that you are sure it has been done before, but turns out it hasn’t. I’m lucky enough to be working with a group of people that have one of these ideas, one that has now been pilot tested with a full-size unit and is now proven for market, and it is exciting to say the least! This full-size, first unit off the assembly line at a site near Calgary.

Yes, Tourism and Shale Gas Really Do Go Together

… 

Contrary to the hyperbole of fractivists, tourism and shale gas development are not only compatible but complementary; it takes an economy to draw tourism.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of participating electronically in a program conducted in the UK to discuss the potential impacts of shale gas development on tourism in the Lancashire region. The connection was poor, so I offered to do a follow-up video of my own capturing the essence of my remarks for sharing with those who attended.

Don’t Be Fooled; Natural Gas Is the Future Thanks to Fracking

cost of renewables - Tom ShepstoneTom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

… 

Fracking has made natural gas the king of fuels and poised the US for energy dominance in a world of foolish pursuits and windmill tilting it cannot afford.

Yet another Today In Energy post from the Energy Information Administration demonstrates the power of fracking and the rise of natural gas as the future of energy for our nation and the world. The US is, as the Trump administration has suggested, poised not only for energy independence but also energy dominance. Germany and much of Europe are flailing about subsidizing wind and other energy sources, distorting markets to the point of nonperformance while exploding electric rates. Meanwhile, here in the US, fracking has delivered ever cheaper energy in the form of oil and gas, which continue to be completely dominate here.

The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM and 1510 AM, talked about offshore drilling, energy dominance, exports and much more last week.

Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week, as guests, we had Jim Willis from Marcellus Drilling News discussing the top 5 stories of the last 6 months and Tom Shepstone of Shepstone Management Company, Inc. and Natural Gas NOW discussing the DRBC and SRBC power grabs.

Wonderful Things: How Fracking Is Changing Everything

… 

Fracking is accomplishing wonderful things for this nation, making us, once again, an industrial powerhouse with spectacular potential far beyond our dreams.

There is such good news out there when it comes to fracking, even though the term often fails to be part of the story. A Today In Energy post this past week from the Energy Information Administration about exports caused me to investigate a bit further and what I discovered in the form of data and charts is instantly revealing of the power of fracking.

Banning Fracking Puts PC Politics Before Local Benefits

Alliance

….
….  

States which ban fracking, such as Maryland and New York, are denying their citizens the rewards and local benefits that come with shale development.

The economy-wide, macro-scale benefits of hydraulic fracturing have been well-documented and are indeed palpable in our everyday experiences in the form of noticeably more affordable energy. With the influx of shale oil on the market, for example, we’re seeing lower gasoline prices this summer than we have in over a decade. The national average is currently around $2.25-per-gallon—$1.30 less than it was three years ago. Multiplied by the 140 billion barrels of gasoline American drivers use each year, this means a total savings of $180 billion than can be put to use elsewhere in our economy.

Evicted Anti-Fracking Protest Goes Underground – Literally

….
…. 

When an anti-fracking protest camp is evicted from the premises of an English drill site, they chose to dig in and build tunnels. 

Digging a hole is hard work. Last summer, I needed to dig out some old, never identified object from my back yard that had collapsed and formed a small sinkhole. Using a shovel, I went to work until I was about 6 feet deep in a 9 feet round hole. Throughout the process, I kept coming across a network of tunnels being used by pesky moles and was amazed at how (and hole) efficient they were while I was plugging away one shovel at a time.

“Your Energy America” Hits A Nerve with Fake News Fractivists

FractivistsK.J. Rodgers
Crownsville, Maryland  

….
…. 

The oil and gas industry dares to speak up for itself with “Your Energy America” and is labeled fake by fractivists; the major purveyors of really fake news. 

The oil and gas industry has made technological advances in the past decade that have reduced risks, operational costs and environmental footprints. It does its job in this arena extraordinarily well, but has traditionally lacked one major component it truly needs: effective public relations. Oh, yes, the companies all have PR programs and a few are even standout examples of how to get a message out, but, by and large, the PR is simply a term for mushy, meaningless news releases that can get by the lawyers, which is no way to educate or make a pitch that will be heard by anyone.
