Media Reporting of Crestwood Victory Reveals Deep Bias

Binghamton Press reporting of a major Crestwood victory in September regarding its proposed Seneca Lake LPG storage facility speaks volumes on press bias.

Local media here in Broome County has helped drive our region into poverty with biased articles by the likes of Tom Wilber in particular, who incessantly writes about natural gas issues and glowingly features “activists” who are against anything having to do with fossil fuels. Meanwhile, he totally ignores the cost in human suffering by landowners and others whose lives would be far off better financially had we been given the chance to extract our Marcellus Shale natural gas.

The news on Pennsylvania natural gas keeps getting better, production reaches new highs, and pipelines are coming online to deliver the natural gas.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) published their weekly natural gas update for week ending November 1, showing Pennsylvania’s natural gas production has reached a new high. Pennsylvania’s natural gas production has increased dramatically since 2013 with an increase of 80%. Marcellus Shale and fracking have boosted Pennsylvania up as one of the top producers of natural gas in the nation.

Vote For Leaders Who Support American Energy

As we go to the polls to vote this year, let’s remember the importance of American energy and back the candidates who support the oil and gas industry.

This year could be a turning point for America’s energy industry.

Will our nation elect leaders who support American energy development—or leaders who want to hinder oil and natural gas through overreaching regulations, drilling bans, and higher taxes?

It’s Time to Speed Up Pipeline Approvals!

It’s time we insisted on faster pipeline approvals from FERC and state agencies. The benefits are too great to be sacrificed to fractivist delay tactics.

My company, Noise Solutions, helps soundproof compressor buildings on pipelines. I’ve learned, accordingly, just how important these facilities are, not only to me but others. They are simply critical for delivering urban energy and rural jobs. They’re also being built to the highest of environmental and safety standards. It’s time we ended the unconscionable delays in pipeline approvals and speeded up the process.

Governor Wolf: Stop Trying to Strangle Our Natural Gas Industry

Publisher: Tri-State Shale Traveler

Why is Governor Wolf so determined to add costs to the one industry that lifted PA during tough economic times and is poised to deliver such growth?

Governor Wolf, once again, you are threatening to strangle the one industry that demonstrates the ability to grow jobs, manufacturing and general prosperity for our Commonwealth. You seem not to care at all that, prior to the shale revolution, we had not seen comparable prosperity for decades.

Unfortunately, pricing pressure and cost cuts have resulted in many layoffs and a downturn for this prosperity producing industry. Adding your promised and ill-advised energy taxes now during this period would be a very poor decision. Jobseekers and local communities who rely on these workers to keep their coffers full would suffer.  Your proposed energy tax, if enacted, would ignite a chain reaction. It is one that will hurt workers, gas companies, service companies, local communities and onward. It’s a loser all the way down.

Democrats Make Hydraulic Fracturing a Political Football

As democratic presidential candidates argue over hydraulic fracturing, Cuomo appears to be stalling on approving permits the Constitution Pipeline needs.

With the presidential primaries now in the Northeast, the two Democratic Presidential candidates are competing for who is more opposed to fracking.  In a very short period of time, the entire concept of hydraulic fracturing has become a political football.  It will be interesting to see how far Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders take this antipathy as hydraulic fracturing is used for more than just shale gas and oil production. Indeed certain “cleantech” source like geothermal energy use techniques similar to hydraulic fracturing.

Rural Pennsylvania Under Siege by the Wolf Pack

Former US Congressman, Pa 5th District

 

Governor Tom Wolf and a pack of environmental activists originally brought into state government by Ed Rendell have rural Pennsylvania under siege.

Rural Pennsylvania’s chances to ever have a strong economy again are severely at risk. Gov. Tom Wolf filled the leadership posts of two agencies — the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) — with alumni from the radical environmental group, PennFuture. Further, the very structure of how the DEP hands down penalties and creates regulations is hurting our economy and needs to be reformed.

FERC Denies Oregon Pipeline; Cuomo May Try Stalling Constitution

Unfortunately, the FERC decision to deny an Oregon pipeline will have nationwide consequences; Cuomo will surely try to stall the Constitution Pipeline.

On Friday, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, for of the rare times in its history, rejected a proposed gas pipeline.  The proposal for the Jordan Energy Cove Project and Pacific Connector Pipeline in southern Oregon, has been around for over a decade. In August, FERC reported that most of the environmental impacts could be reduced to “less-than-significant levels”.  But on Friday, FERC’s official decision stated that the project’s developers, Williams Partners and Veresen Inc. of Calgary, had not shown the need for the project. They had not acquired many easements for the project route or signed contracts with suppliers.

Senator Yudichak Extols Benefits of Pipelines

.

Pennsylvania State Senator John Yudichak recently commented on the PennEast Pipeline Project in letter to FERC, extolling its considerable benefits.

A recent U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) release discusses how new natural gas pipelines have expanded northeast gas production – boosting natural gas production 18 percent higher than the year-ago period. While several important projects have come online in late 2015 and early 2016, there is still insufficient “takeaway capacity” in the Appalachian Region.

Energy Politics Are Fueling the Presidential Race

Taxes are high, gas prices are low and energy politics are clearly driving the polls; Americans are looking to for fresh new ideas not career politicians.

Today is the New Hampshire Primary, the traditional first-in-the-nation presidential contest.  A year ago, it would have been hard to imagine Donald Trump, with no political experience, and Bernie Sanders, who wasn’t even a Democrat until last year, leading in the polls.  If one thing is clear from the early stages, however, it’s that Americans of all stripes are shouting “No!” to any establishment candidates.

To understand why people are so cynical, one only needs to look at energy politics, with a focus on Ground Zero of the Marcellus Basin, Pennsylvania.
