… 


Rumored new FERC appointment Rob Powelson offers a lesson in dealing with the fractivist jihad. It starts with not acting like Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan.

We can’t speak highly enough of Rob Powelson, member of the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) and currently the president of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC). As we recently reported, Powelson is one of three names being rumored as a nominee to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). It can’t happen soon enough!

Energy Poverty Dramatically Decreases with Natural Gas

Brittany Ramos
Coordinator, External Affairs
Cabot Oil & Gas

  

Developing nations need access to affordable energy; natural gas plays a transformative role in delivering the energy and decrease energy poverty.

Tisha Schuller, Principal at Adamantine Energy and Strategic Advisor for the Natural Gas Initiative at Stanford University, provided this guest post for Well Said Cabot, which also ran in Scientific American on March 3, 2017.

Life without access to energy is simply miserable. The most mundane task, such as heating water to cook rice, can require an entire day’s labor to gather both water and firewood. That labor can be physically exhausting, in some cases immediately dangerous, and often with unfortunate health outcomes. With over one billion people around the world faced with such simple barriers to improving their lives, reducing energy poverty can serve as a shared goal that transcends political, cultural, and regional barriers.

New England’s Mad Cow Disease

… 

new englandNew England conjures up images of cows grazing behind stone walls, but it seems the region has a bad case of mad cow disease if energy policy is any guide.

Last June, Marcellus Drilling News quasi-predicted natural gas prices might spike during the 2016-2017 winter season in New England, due to a coming shortage of LNG from Tinidad. With a warmer than normal winter, and with newfound natural gas supplies making their way to New England, prices did not spike. However, New England continues to pay prices 3-4 times higher than the rest of the country for their natural gas due to lack of supply.

That hasn’t (and won’t) change, until more supplies make it to New England —either by pipeline or ship.

Naturally, the special interest pandering politicians of the region (well, not so much the region, as the Democratic Republic otherwise known as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts) are opposed to the pipelines, making  their constituents ever more dependent on foreign gas.

Today’s Delaware Riverkeeper PennEast Stunt An Al Capone Vault Moment?

….

….

The Delaware Riverkeeper is planning a stupid pet trick at today’s DRBC meeting, a stunt that seems likely to turn out to be its “Al Capone’s Vault” moment. 

Maya van Rossum, the mouthy radical who has designated herself as the Delaware Riverkeeper plans an incredibly stupid pet trick at today’s DRBC meeting. It’s a protest of the PennEast Pipeline to be implemented in bits by a carefully choreographed group of hangers-on who will do what their told and, one by one, stand up to read bits of a rambling diatribe Maya & Co have concocted. You can read the whole thing here and Maya’s detailed instructions here (including her strange “Pura vida” closing).

If you take the time to read it, you’ll probably wish you hadn’t but you’ll understand exactly what a joke the whole Delaware Riverkeeper operation really is. I suspect this stupid stunt could well become its Al Capone’s Secret Vault moment. There’s nothing there.

The Stupidity of Importing Natural Gas One Already Has

LNG - Nick Grealy ReportsNick Grealy

….
….

Message to Boston: This is why importing natural gas from Trinidad and Tobago when it’s being produced next door here in the US is idiocy for public policy.

Deciding – or not – to explore for the UK’s onshore natural gas and oil reserves needs informed facts.

On Saturday March 4, the LNG carrier Gallina  docked at the Isle of Grain Terminal 50 miles from London.

The Gallina’s arrival is inextricably linked to the lack of UK shale gas exploration. If exploration had been allowed,  and production ensued, the Gallina would not be landing the cargo.

The Gallina’s gas is very high carbon, with a 20% to 30% higher CO2 footprint across the supply chain than locally produced UK gas.

Last month we recapped a Think About It event held at Lehigh Career & Technical Institute (LCTI) where we were joined by about seventy-five business leaders, educational professionals, and elected officials to discuss the trends and topics in the energy industry and how they are affecting the Commonwealth.
