Cabot Donates Needed Safety Equipment to Local Fire Companies

Rick Hiduk
Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com


Cabot has once again shown its commitment to the local community by donating nearly $45,000 in safety equipment to fire companies in Susquehanna County.

Seventeen fire companies in Susquehanna County were the recipients of a variety of safety equipment from Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation last week. Over the course of April 25 and 26, nearly $45,000 worth of equipment procured by Taylor Rental/BX3 Supply was warmly received by fire company representatives. Cabot officials also invited the firefighters to make arrangements at their convenience to visit gas pads and other sites to acquaint themselves with new technologies and potential concerns.

Enough with the Double Standards of So Called Environmentalists

Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow


Paul Driessen exposes the hypocrisy and double standards of environmentalists, whose concerns seem to disappear when “green” energy is involved.

It’s a good thing environmentalists have double standards – or they wouldn’t have any standards at all.

Empire State legislators worry that anything above the current 0.0001% methane in Earth’s atmosphere will cause catastrophic climate change, and that pipelines will disturb wildlife habitats. So they oppose fracking for natural gas in New York and pipelines that would import the clean fuel from Pennsylvania.

But then they bribe or force rural and vacation area communities to accept dozens of towering wind turbines that impact thousands of acres, destroy scenic views, kill thousands of birds and bats annually, and affect the sleep and health of local residents – to generate pricey intermittent electricity that is sent on high voltage transmission lines to Albany, Manhattan and other distant cities.

PennEast Asks: Should New Jersey Get Its Energy from Russia or from Pennsylvania?

Natural Gas NOWConnie Mellin
Natural Gas NOW


PennEast Pipeline has laid out the New Jersey dilemma with respect to pipelines vs. the “trendy, but scientifically unfounded” fixations of environmental extremists; Russia or Pennsylvania?

Those Russian shipments of LNG to Boston as its politicians and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo stood on soapboxes to earn brownie points with environmental extremists in opposing pipelines were a wakeup call. PennEast Pipeline is making sure New Jersey heard it.

Don’t Blame “Big Oil and Gas” for Denial of Domestic Energy to New England

Cuomo's Legacy - Dick DowneyRichard Downey
Unatego Area Landowners Association


New England is out in the cold, being denied affordable, domestic energy by Governor Cuomo’s fracking moratorium and pipeline rejections.

Adrian Kusminsky’s column in Hometown Oneonta two weeks ago, entitled “10 Years Ago, Anti-Fracking Fight Taught Communities Empowerment,” celebrates the anti-fracking mobilization instrumental in the ban on gas development. As a key player, he is proud of the effort. He writes about “the vulnerability of our local communities to powerful outside forces over which we have little or no control. In this case it was the oil and gas industry that was led by the most powerful corporations in the world.”

Governor Cuomo’s No Pipelines Stance Is Risky for the Entire Nation

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


Dan Markind explains by importing Russian LNG to New England, rather than building pipelines to deliver domestic natural gas, puts the entire nation at risk.

The curious inconsistency among our national energy policy, national security policy and national environmental policy is coming into sharper focus.  It likely will be amplified by events thousands of miles away in the Middle East.

Start locally.  Last month I wrote about the astounding fact that people in New York and New England are more comfortable paying the Russians to import gas thousands of miles over ships of questionable seaworthiness than they are building pipelines to secure a cheap, reliable energy supply and pay Americans.  This aversion to pipelines is not unique to New York and New England – witness Dakota Access in North Dakota, Keystone in Nebraska and Jordan Cove in Oregon.

Ever Wonder Where US LNG Exports Go?

An interesting new report from the U.S. Department of Energy breakdowns exactly where in the world our domestically produced LNG exports are going.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy has just released an interesting report that shows the number and volume of LNG (liquefied natural gas) exports from Feb. 2016 (when U.S. LNG exports began) to Dec. 2017. It’s really quite fascinating.

Gas and Pipeline Obstruction Hastens An Upstate Death Spiral

Cuomo's Legacy - Dick DowneyRichard Downey

Andrew Cuomo’s natural gas and pipeline obstruction is hastening the Upstate death spiral as he destroys its potential and deprives the region of any hope.

About three years ago Governor Cuomo told Upstate New York to drop dead.

Upstate wasn’t in good shape anyway, infected with three strains of high taxes (sales, property, and income) and a regulatory clot that kept industry away. However, there was hope, the development of low-cost natural gas that might balance the negatives.

On December 19, 2014, the Governor pulled the plug on that hope. He banned gas drilling in New York. Since then he’s systematically impeded gas pipeline construction, thus choking off the rest of the Northeast from the cheap energy available just south of our border. He does this to service the financiers of the renewable elites and to satisfy his fractivist base. These folks are his bridge to future ambitions.

Range Resources Committed to Methane Management

Range ResourcesRANGE


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.

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

Cuomo's Legacy - Dick DowneyRichard 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.

Memorandum to DRBC: Don’t Be Dolts!

John J. IntervalJohn J. Interval
Professional Petroleum Geologist.


John J. Interval wants the DRBC permanent fracking ban rejected for the sake of the economy and protection of property owner’s rights.

Protecting private property rights is a bedrock principle of a free society and a key to explaining American prosperity.

That principle is in danger of being subverted. The Delaware River Basin Commission, which consists of the governors of New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania, and the federal government, represented by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, proposes a permanent ban on fracking for natural gas in the Delaware River watershed without any compensation for landowners who own the rights to gas resources and who stand to lose millions of dollars in royalties. It also translates into less revenue for local governments and school systems.
