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.

This Is No Time for More Taxes and Regulation on Gas!

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf keeps attacking natural gas with proposed taxes and regulation. Is he trying to smother the industry? It looks like it.

It’s clear the shale industry in Pennsylvania has slowed down.  Drilling has significantly dropped for a variety of reasons, the oversupply of natural gas being one reason along with a lack of pipelines to get the clean-burning energy source to markets that need it.  I’ve witnessed it firsthand, being involved in the industry.  Towns that were booming have slowed significantly.  Many businesses in the supply chain suffer as a result, and jobs have been lost. This is no time more taxes and regulation.

Andrew Cuomo: New York’s Gutless Governor

The cynical politics of Andrew Cuomo involve assuming power for the purpose of evading responsibility and patronizing big green radicals.

Progress on the $700 million Constitution Pipeline teeters on the mating habits of the Northern long-eared bat and the political machinations of Governor Andrew Cuomo.

We Have the Numbers, So Approve the Constitution Pipeline!

Though politics shouldn’t be the criteria, support for the Constitution Pipeline has now been amply demonstrated and it’s time Cuomo approved this project!

“Where are your numbers?”

This was a question Andrew Cuomo asked a Joint Landowners  Coalition (JLCNY) representative in 2011.  Cuomo knew then the antis’ claims were bogus, that upstate development depended on cheap energy, and NYC was switching to gas to meet EPA air quality standards.

Promotion of CNG Justified Says Scranton Times!

Lackawanna County is looking to convert some of the transit agency’s vans and buses to CNG, saving taxpayers money, while using natural gas drilled in Pennsylvania.

I read with great interest the Scranton Times editorial supporting a compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Lackawanna County. As someone who drives a CNG vehicle, gets it maintained locally and desires to find good uses for locally produced natural gas, a CNG station in Scranton will help the local economy, clean the air and lessen the importance of foreign oil.  Bravo to the Times for promoting the benefits of natural has as a vehicle fuel.

Demonstrating overwhelming local support for the proposed Constitution Pipeline, leaders of the Unatego Area Landowner Association (UALA) announced today that they had distributed over 10,000 postcards addressed to Governor Andrew Cuomo demanding that he approve the pipeline and the jobs it will bring to their economically ravaged communities.

Low-Cost Energy Saving You Money

Low-cost energy is putting money back in your pocket. Natural gas produced from Marcellus Shale is keeping heating costs down, lowing food costs and even helping area families in need.

Did you know low-cost energy is contributing to more savings than just your utility bills?

Energy is something we use every day but tend not to think about too frequently. From heating our homes to charging our phones to cleaning our clothes, energy is something we simply cannot live without. It powers industry and delivers goods to the marketplace. And often we only think about it when there is a shortage or outage.

The Marcellus and Utica Shale Databook 2015 has been released and includes a full account of shale development activity over the three-state region; permits issued, pipelines, leasing, with plenty of data tables and maps.

Wouldn’t it be great if you knew where drilling is about to happen? A sort-of crystal ball so you know who is about to drill, where they are about to drill, and how much they are about to drill? That’s the premise behind the Marcellus and Utica Shale Databook, a 3-volume series published every four months.

In 90 jam-packed pages you will get the latest information on what’s happening (or not happening) with drilling in the Marcellus/Utica region. Continue reading

Shale Counties Have High Personal Income Growth

NEPA Energy - Johnny Williams Johnny Williams

Five of the top seven Pennsylvania’s counties that have high personal income growth are in the Marcellus Shale region according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis’ numbers.

Job growth across rural Pennsylvania counties due to the natural gas industry has been well-documented and understood during its life in the state. Companies moved in, businesses were created, and “For Hire” signs and ads were commonplace.

Of course, with these opportunities came growth, and industry jobs offered a significant opportunity for income as companies sought the vast reserves of natural gas hidden in the Marcellus Shale.
