What Two-Faced Trust-Funder Tom Wolf (and Others) Said Then

Betty Sutliff quotes Gov. Tom Wolf on natural gas development from when he wasn’t acting as a DRBC member and was actually representing Pennsylvanians.

Politicians such as Governor Tom Wolf have a habit of saying the darnedest things, especially where it comes to natural gas development but it seems to matter a lot who they’re addressing.

In this post I am choosing to let the politicians speak for themselves and readers can compare their statements then with what they’re saying now about natural gas development in the Delaware River Basin.

Pennsylvania Rep. Boback Throws An Old Bone to Fractivists

Pennsylvania Representative Karen Boback is resurrecting a long ago defeated proposal for a state health registry, throwing a bone to her fractivist friends.

Pennsylvania State Representative Karen Boback, Republican of Luzerne County, has never been a friend of natural gas and she loves to posture on it. Eight years ago, in fact, she introduced legislation asking for “a comprehensive study of the Commonwealth’s current laws and regulations … to ensure that we are effectively protecting our citizens and our environment from the potentially harmful impact of natural gas drilling.” claiming shale drilling was “deeper than was possible when many of the laws regulating the industry were written.”

That was false—Pennsylvania had numerous deeper wells long before the shale revolution—and the legislation went nowhere but Boback got her desired press and now she wants more. She’s introduced another bill to establish “a health registry for collection of health-related data associated with unconventional gas well drilling” within the Department of Health. It’s another version of a bill that failed in 2012. Designed to grab more press, the legislation, in the unlikely event it were ever enacted, would simply become another tool in the fractivist arsenal. Boback is simply throwing them an old bone..

China’s Gas Demand in Bid to Reduce Emissions Outpaces Its Production

K.J. Rodgers
Crownsville, Maryland  

….
…. 

China is putting all the cards on the table to reduce emissions with natural gas, but their demand is much higher than their production capacity.

China is the world’s largest emissions contributor. Images of smog clouding the daily lives of Chinese citizens have become a common scene in the country. It’s a very dreary view as people must walk about their day wearing a facemask – almost as if it has turned into a Chinese OSHA Requirement.

Sorry Fractivists: Fracking Made Susquehanna County Even Better!

Decline Curves - Chris AckerChris Acker
Geological Engineer,
Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania 

CHRIS ACKER

CHRIS ACKER

Natural gas drilling has been going strong in Susquehanna County for ten years now and the reality is we still have our rural way of life, with improvements!

Rural Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, is my home and I treasure it deeply.  With a population of only 42,000, the county sits atop one of the world’s most prolific natural gas formations – the Marcellus Shale.

Cabot Oil & Gas has invested billions of dollars here to develop this extraordinary resource.  Astoundingly, production from my county alone could supply the entire needs of France.  Cabot has been here over a decade and I am intimately familiar with the effects of the industry.

U.S. Carbon Dioxide Emissions Down Big-Time Since 2005

United States energy-related carbon dioxide emissions have drastically declined since 2005 as natural gas has replaced coal and oil energy sources.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has published a review of energy-related CO2 emissions and the news is great. Although the EIA saw a slight increase in natural gas emissions, due to increased consumption trends, the overall energy-related carbon dioxide emission levels are down. And expected to remain that way through 2019.

The Adelphia Gateway: Making An Old Pipeline Great Again

The reinvention of an old oil pipeline to serve as the Adelphia Gateway will deliver clean, economical, low-carbon natural gas to the Philadelphia region.

Back in November, Jim Willis reported on “a brand new pipeline project…in the Greater Philadelphia area,” stating that “although the project is new, the pipeline is old–already in the ground.” That project is the Adelphia Gateway and it will repurpose the old pipeline to deliver natural gas to Philadelphia. FERC is now considering the project and it deserves our support, as it will be yet another outlet for Marcellus Shale gas.

The Evolving Technology Likely to Produce A Fractivist Inferno

New technologies that will remove the “hydraulic” from hydraulic fracturing are on the horizon and will send screaming opponents into the fractivist inferno.

Fracturing of natural gas wells using propane is something we’ve previously discussed here at NaturalGasNOW. It’s definitely feasible and has been used elsewhere but the economics are questionable compared to hydraulic fracturing in many instances, so it’s not caught on yet, although it has been proposed in New York. There were also gas wells that have already been fractured with CO2, which holds the promise of being combined with CO2 capture to dramatically reduce CO2 emissions. Now, though, comes another idea, which may be the best of all: fracturing with natural gas itself. It’s likely to send our anti-gas friends into screaming apoplectic fits as they self-immolate in a fractivist inferno.

Does the Daily Star Now Want The Constitution Pipeline, Maybe?

Richard Downey
Unatego Area Landowners Association

    
    

Dick Downey comments on an Oneonta Daily Star article about the Constitution Pipeline stating they now “see benefits coming from the natural gas pipeline.”

Congratulations, Daily Star! You finally equate the Constitution Pipeline with the area’s economic health. While disapproving the route, the method of land appropriation, the preparation for construction, and the industry’s history of securing local tax abatement, the Star’s January 20/21st editorial at least notes some benefits and beneficiaries of affordable gas.
