Range Resources Committed to Methane Management

Range ResourcesRANGE
RESOURCES

 


In a recent environmental report, Range Resources scored high by continuing to exceed regulatory requirements in methane management.

As You Sow, a nonprofit organization that promotes environmental and social corporate responsibility through shareholder advocacy recently released its annual report, Disclosing the Facts 2017: Transparency and Risk in Methane Emissions. The 2017 report took a new approach and focused on methane emissions management and reporting from some of the most active oil and gas producers. The investor report is designed to promote improved methane management and reporting practices among oil and gas producers.

“We Were Wrong. Methane Isn’t So Bad After All. Sorry.”

"Environmentalists" - MarkindDaniel B. Markind, Esq.
Weir and Partners, LLP

 

An academic study on methane goes bad. Will anyone in the press notice? Dan Markind reports and reminds environmentalists to be careful what they wish for.

Earlier today, the Journal of Geophysics Research issued a retraction notice for an article it first published online on April 20, 2017.  In pertinent part, the retraction reads:

“The article, Ren, X., et al. (2017), “Methane remissions from the Marcellus Shale in southwestern Pennsylvania and West Virginia based on airborne measurements,” has been retracted by the authors because of an error in wind measurements used to calculate methane emissions from the southwest Marcellus Shale region.  The error was discovered by the authors in October 2017…The original wind measurements led to an overestimate of methane emissions from oil and natural gas operations. A reanalysis with corrected winds…is expected to reverse a conclusion of the paper, which had asserted that leakage from oil and natural gas extraction in this region results in a climate penalty compared to the use of coal….”

No, Natural Gas Isn’t the Source of Increased Methane Levels

K.J. Rodgers
Crownsville, Maryland  

….
…. 

The atmosphere is showing signs of increased methane, but contrary to popular belief, it is not natural gas nor fracking that is responsible.

Fractivists have been stretching to link fracking and natural gas to everything they can think of for years. The twisting of facts and intermingling emotions in their propaganda is 101 training for new members. It is almost as is if groups like the Food and Water Watch sit new hires in a dark broom closet and force them to watch some Wenonah Hauter training video on “How to Deceive the Public for Their Own Good.”

Just Let the Market Reduce Methane Emissions, For Crying Out Loud!

Institute for
Energy Research

….
….  

Why are the Feds, not to mention Pennsylvania, so busy trying to reduce methane emissions with over-the-top regulations when markets are already doing it?

This past month, the Interior Department proposed delaying the implementation of the Methane and Waste Prevention Rule. The purpose of the rule is to limit the amount of methane that oil and natural gas producers may release or burn off as part of their production on public lands. According to some estimates, the rule would cost $279 million a year and block more than 800,000 jobs by 2020.

The decision to review this costly regulation has been met with the usual animosity in Washington: politicians have drafted a letter condemning the decision and anti-fossil fuel groups are challenging it in the courts. But why are so many people interested in saving a regulation that will have such a negligible impact on reducing carbon emissions?

PSU Agrees: Natural Gas Grows as Greenhouse Gases Decline

It isn’t just us saying it; Penn State University has also noticed greenhouse gases are declining as natural gas production is increasing significantly.

Earlier this month I wrote a piece here noting the EPA data shows greenhouse gases are dropping in the Marcellus and Utica regions even as natural gas production grows. Now, Penn State University, my alma mater, says the same thing.

Fracking Is Killing Greenhouse Gas Emissions with Technology

The EPA is out with its latest greenhouse gas emissions from onshore petroleum and natural gas production data, showing emissions are way down. Thank fracking.

The EPA has a neat website tracking greenhouse gas emissions from onshore petroleum and natural gas production. The data shows they’re way down over the last five years in the Marcellus/Utica Shale region even though production is up and more data is being reported. Given that we know the substitution of natural gas for coal power generation has already reduced greenhouse gas emissions enormously, leaving the US with a superior record compared to other braggart non-performing nations such as Germany, this is remarkable. More winning is ahead.

Natural Gas Protein: The New “It’s What’s for Dinner” Meal?

K.J. Rodgers
Crownsville, Maryland  

….
…. 

A new protein derived from feeding bacteria a methane-laced solution is being used to help feed farm animals and maybe soon, humans. 

Food supplies around the world can sometimes be scarce. Natural resources may not be adequate in some areas with increasing human population or as we are seeing in toleration dictatorships such as North Korea or Venezuela, the scarcity is a combination of situations that lead to the starvation of people.

New Holland Develops NGT (Natural Gas Tractor)

Constitution Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone
Shepstone Management Company, Inc.

 

New Holland, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of farm equipment, already has a propane farm tractor and has now developed one that uses methane fuel.

It’s being marketed as a “sustainable” farm tractor that burns farm-generated methane, but it can just as easily work off conventional natural gas, of course. New Holland already has a propane powered farm tractor, so this is the next logical step. It’s one sleek blue farm machine and provides one of those examples where renewables and natural gas overlap and are mutually supportive. I can’t wait to see one in action.

Midnight Methane Rules Penny Wise and Pound Foolish

LNG - Robert Bradly, JRRobert Bradley, Jr.
Founder and CEO of the Institute for Energy Research.

…  

The IER’s Robert Bradley examines Federal methane rules; yet another example of foolish counterproductive governmental intrusion beyond all rhyme or reason.

Last month, the U.S. Senate narrowly voted against repealing a punitive, last-minute Obama era regulation. The Interior Department’s so-called Methane and Waste Prevention Rule, while advertised as economically prudent, would eliminate consumer-driven jobs, curtail energy production, and otherwise harm the nation’s economy.

The “midnight regulation,” part of Obama’s now-defunct Climate Action Plan, would require gas and oil companies drilling on federal lands to make extreme reductions in methane emissions. Think of it as the final volley in Obama’s war on fossil fuels.
