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.

How to Shift An Energy Burden to Others While Virtue Signaling

LNG - Nick Grealy ReportsNick Grealy

….
….

Nick Grealy explains how those who oppose fracking are unwittingly shifting their energy burden onto the backs of others.

Here’s a story based on cultural anthropology, the study of human cultures.  Culture is bottom up. The story of man is from individuals to families, to bands, to groups, to villages, to tribes, to cities to countries – and today to the world.

Deep in the Amazon rain forest there still remain uncontacted tribes, humans who, by choice or geography, have no contact with the outside world.

The Arrogant Orchestrated World of Fractivism

fractivism - Tom ShepstoneTom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

… 

Fractivism has been on full display this week as the arrogant orchestrated world of astroturf that it really is; a disdainful power grab financed by elites.

Yesterday, as I expected and feared would happen the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) surrendered yet again to the orchestrated efforts of one its own funders to intimidate it. A DRBC hearing at which the public was supposedly restricted to commenting “only on the items that have been advertised in the public hearing notice,” and at which there was supposed to be “NO open public comment session,” was allowed to become another fiasco of fractivism.

Josh Fox’s Plan to Disrupt: Will the DRBC Surrender to Anarchy Again?

Natural Gas NOW

… 

Six years ago the DRBC caved and surrendered to anarchy created by Josh Fox and the Povertykeeper refusing to vote on gas. Will anarchy now win again?

It was 2011 when the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) drafted gas drilling regulations only to sit on them. The Commissioners, in an astonishing display of cowardice, surrendered to anarchy created by Josh Fox and the Delaware Povertykeeper, simply refusing to vote. The regulations were anything but reasonable and constituted a massive DRBC power grab but, faced with the opposition of a sniveling producer of smut films and a shill for its sugar-daddy funder, the William Penn Foundation, the agency crumbled anyway.

It was perhaps the worst combined display of malfeasance, misfeasance and nonfeasance ever, as Fox grabbed credit for killing economic opportunity in the poorest area of the basin. Now, he’s hoping to resurrect anarchy and force the DRBC back into its secret hiding place. Will they let him? Carol Collier was only too happy to let her friend “Josh” get his way in 2011 when she was running the DRBC. She sympathized with the Povertykeeper, after all, and put that organization on most of her committees even though it had sued the agency. Steve Tambini, her replacement, seems less of her ideological ilk, but he faces his first big test tomorrow.  Continue reading

Tell the DRBC to Get It Done, NOW, Without Further Delay!

cost of renewables - Tom ShepstoneTom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

… 

It’s time to take action to let the DRBC know just how outrageous their eight years of dawdling in allowing gas drilling to move ahead really is.

Bob Nolan’s guest post this morning makes it clear it’s time to let the DRBC know how Upper Delaware communities and landowners are thoroughly disgusted with the agency’s six years of doing nothing on draft gas drilling regulations. The DRBC also wasted another two years before that in developing a ridiculous set of standards that had everything to do with land use and virtually nothing to do with water use.

Josh Fox is mounting his campaign and we need to do the same. The following is a petition we ask every landowner, every business, every job-seeking resident and every local official to get behind. Your signing of the petition will automatically generate an e-mail to the Secretary of the Commission demanding action.

You imposed an effective moratorium on gas drilling in the Delaware River basin by virtue of decisions made by your Executive Director some eight years ago and on May 5, 2010 meeting you unanimously directed your staff “to develop draft regulations on well pads in the shales for notice and comment rulemaking and postponed the DRBC’s consideration of well pad dockets until regulations are adopted.” You were presented with draft regulations in September, 2011 and have since refused to vote on them so as to avoid offending special interests.

Altogether, you have had eight very long years to establish a policy on this matter and have utterly failed to the great economic detriment of upper basin landowners and communities with natural gas resources. It is a complete abdication of responsibility and we call upon you to immediately resolve this matter in the manner of your sister agency, the Susquehanna River Basin Commission, which has regulated water use connected with drilling, with no adverse impact on water quality and no interference in natural gas development so vital to the regional economy.

Do it now!

To the Delaware River Basin Commission

Dear Delaware River Basin Commission Members,

Josh Fox Tries to Stave Off Justice for Upper Delaware Landowners

Bob NolanBob Nolan
Wayne County, Pennsylvania, Landowner

….

….

Upper Delaware landowners are fighting back against the injustice of the DRBC sitting on over-the-top gas regulations for years and Josh Fox is flailing. 

Josh Fox, on Friday, put out a call to action to the little swarm of malicious malcontents who follow him to rise up and exercise some mobocracy against the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) at its meeting this Wednesday. He titled his screed “Once Again We Are Under the Threat of Fracking.” He called the Delaware “our beautiful watershed” (even though he operates from Brooklyn out of natural gas heated space). He stated “we simply can’t allow DRBC to frack up our river, our land, air and public health,” and repeatedly raised the specter of threats to his drinking water.

The email was another self-indulgent exercise in crying wolf by the attention starved Fox. It was another reminder of how badly Upper Delaware landowners have been treated at the hands of both this chameleon and the DRBC he holds up as the supposed enemy, even though they’ve been on the same team.

Next Time New England Will Need An Even Stronger 4th Quarter

… 

The New England Patriots did the unimaginable with their come from behind win. The New England states will need an even better 4th quarter energy-wise.

Tom Brady did it again with a stunning victory in the 4th quarter of this year’s Super Bowl. Unfortunately, Tom Brady is not available to save New England and New York energy game. These states are collectively about five touchdowns behind with two minutes to play thanks to their asinine political correctness. They’ll only survive by making themselves more dependent on foreign sources of oil and gas and at great cost.

Cabot’s “Fill a Glass with Hope” Far Exceeds Goal

External Affairs Coordinator, Cabot Oil & Gas

 

Cabot’s Fill a Glass with Hope program, which provides milk to help local families in Susquehanna County, has exceeded its goal beyond expectation.

Brittany Ramos recently detailed on Well Said the extraordinary work by Feeding Pennsylvania to bring fresh milk to Pennsylvania families in need through the Fill a Glass with Hope program. In 2016, the inaugural year, Feeding Pennsylvania announced an ambitious goal of distributing 2 million servings of milk. And at the 2017 Farm Show, Feeding Pennsylvania Executive Director Jane Clements-Smith announced 2.3 million servings of milk were distributed, far above the original goal.

Infrastructure Investment Paying Off with Growth and Savings

natural gas industry

Brittany Ramos
Coordinator, External Affairs
Cabot Oil & Gas

  

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.
