Cindy Dunn Was for Natural Gas Before She Was Against It

… 

DCNR’s Cindy Dunn, former Penn Future shill for the William Penn Foundation and Heinz Endowments, was for natural gas development before she was against it.

The Pennsylvania House and Senate hearings on the Commonwealth’s 2017-2018 budget continue to illustrate what a sad thing thing, indeed, is the Wolf Administration. Led by a child of wealth with no seeming ability to manage anything, but a strong desire to achieve political correctness, the Administration is ripe for exploitation by special interests. Cindy Dunn, a humorless true believer who has bounced around between government and Penn Future, a tool of Pennsylvania’s two mega-elitists, the Haas and Heinz families, inadvertently provides a window into this world of chaos.

PA Pipeline Infrastructure Moves Forward As DEP Uses Common Sense

Sunoco Logistics is upping the game in building pipeline infrastructure as Pennsylvania DEP applies common sense in dealing with pipelines and earthquakes.

Just two weeks after receiving its permits from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for the  construction of the Mariner East 2 Pipeline across Pennsylvania to Marcus Hook, Sunoco Logistics confirmed that it will be building two, and not just one, pipelines within the right of way.  Construction already has begun on a 20-inch pipe, but Sunoco Logistics CEO Michael Hennigan confirms that a 16-inch pipe also will be built adjacent to the 20-inch pipe.  Mr. Hennigan noted that the DEP approval convinced producers to commit to the project, confirming again the importance of the pipeline infrastructure in the production and distribution of energy.

PA Budget Hearing Exposes Severance Tax Game

… 

Pennsylvania budget hearings are revealing just how little thought the Wolf Administration has given to the severance tax it wants to impose for spite.

There are two weeks of hearings going on in Harrisburg right now to study Tom Wolf’s proposed new budget for Pennsylvania. It’s more boring than you can imagine; watching paint dry is a pleasant diversion, in fact. Still, tucked inside the hearings are some questions and answers that tell us an awful lot about the Wolf administration and where it stands on natural gas issues. There are also a lot of additional questions that need to be asked.

The Atlantic Sunrise pipeline will increase access to affordable Pennsylvania natural gas to meet the needs of over seven million homes.

Our friend and associate, Mike Atchie, Manager of Public Outreach, with Williams Partners, provided this guest post for Well Said Cabot, which I’m pleased to share here as well. You can learn more about Atlantic Sunrise by visiting the project’s website or connecting on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Google+.

On Feb. 3, the future of Pennsylvania’s energy landscape got a little brighter when the Federal Environmental Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a certificate of public convenience and necessity authorizing Williams Partners’ Atlantic Sunrise.

Shale Exports Key to Defending US Interests Here and Abroad

Our new President’s willingness to build important infrastructure and allow shale exports will change the dependence Europe has on Russia for energy.

President Donald Trump travelled to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware last Wednesday to pay his respects to Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens, a Navy SEAL who was killed in a raid against al Qaeda in Yemen.  The raid was the first reported covert counter-terrorism operation of the Trump Presidency.  While the sketchy details were reported widely in the press, the press did not highlight the folly of relying on countries like Yemen for America’s energy supply.

Coordinator, External Affairs

Investments in natural gas infrastructure have been beneficial to our region; businesses, consumers and non-profits are all saving with lower energy costs.

The investment in expanding infrastructure to move natural gas produced from the Marcellus shale is having big benefits for northeastern Pennsylvania residents and businesses.

Senator John Blake joined us for this Power to Save segment to highlight some of the projects in the region taking advantage of the close proximity to the natural gas supply, like the $1.2 billion Lackawanna Energy Center project.

Speakers at the Think About Energy Briefing discussed the importance of infrastructure, education investment and business opportunities.

On January 18th, seventy-five business leaders, educational professionals, and politicians came together for an event titled Think About Energy at Lehigh Valley Career & Technical Institute in Schnecksville, Pa. The event discussed current trends and topics in the energy industry including abundant natural gas production from the Marcellus Shale, critical infrastructure constraints, aligning education with industry employment needs, downstream value-added opportunities, and opportunities for combining heat and power. This event is the 10th installment in an ongoing series.

Will the Trump Administration Provide Clear Energy Direction?

Will a new Trump Administration offer some clear energy direction to replace the often  conflicting signals that came from the Obama Administration? Perhaps.

With one week to go before the Donald Trump Presidency, the Obama Administration’s final energy moves remain curious.  Just a few weeks after refusing to finish the Dakota Access Pipeline, the Administration went the other way on Atlantic Sunrise.

Right before the new year, FERC gave the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline long-awaited good news by issuing a favorable Environmental Impact Statement.  Based on that, Williams Partners announced that it anticipates full service by mid-2018.  The EIS is good news for Williams and for anyone in the Mid-Atlantic whose gas supply will be safeguarded by the connection of the Northeast Pennsylvania Marcellus Shale deposits with a major Northeast pipeline.

The Year Wraps Up With Natural Gas Usage Rising

Natural gas usage keeps rising, despite the hurdles it has faced. Daniel Markind highlights accomplishments and challenges at the state level.

Without a doubt, the election of Donald Trump was the big story of 2016.  While Barak Obama never came out fully against shale gas and oil, and indeed reaped its benefits, their production did not fit his “clean” agenda and the Obama Administration never was welcoming to the new technology or the industry.  The new President will have a different mindset.  It remains to be seen what specific steps Donald Trump will take, and what reaction those steps will engender.

At the state level, the gas and oil supply glut is over and 2017 looks more promising than 2016, albeit with numerous challenges.  Among the most interesting states, here are some of the highlights:
