… 

Aside from fractivist shills paid by the Heinz Endowments, William Penn Foundation, etc. no one’s threatening Pennsylvania economy more than public unions.

Pennsylvania State Rep. Greg Vitali, from the Philadelphia area, is an environmental extremist. In the past, he’s floated plans to force Pennsylvanians to use less natural gas. Nobody, except some media outlets, pay any attention to him. He’s so far left even his own party has disowned him, removing a committee assignment from him and reassigning personnel away from his office. But Vitali needs to keep his name in the news–for reelection purposes. So, a few weeks ago he popped back up again with a faux report that says “the system is rigged” in Harrisburg with respect to failing to pass a severance tax.

How Shale Gas and Fracking Are Saving Pennsylvania Farms

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

… 

Fracking makes all the difference for Pennsylvania farms; income generated from shale gas allows the farms to stay operational.

Some farms not only produce products like milk, meat, eggs and/or crops–some farms produce energy. Would it surprise you to learn that in 2014 (the most recent year with stats available), energy companies paid farmers a staggering $2.9 billion for the energy extracted from private farms?

The Shale Comeback: Stronger Than Ever

… 

There is a shale comeback underway and it’s major, with huge technological gains and capacities to carry the shale revolution forward throughout the world.

Major multinational bank Société Générale, headquartered in Paris but with major operations here in the U.S., has just issued a 37-page report on U.S. commodities. The theme of the report caught our attention: “Five facts about shale: it’s coming back, and coming back strong.”

Shale Exports Key to Defending US Interests Here and Abroad

Our new President’s willingness to build important infrastructure and allow shale exports will change the dependence Europe has on Russia for energy.

President Donald Trump travelled to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware last Wednesday to pay his respects to Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens, a Navy SEAL who was killed in a raid against al Qaeda in Yemen.  The raid was the first reported covert counter-terrorism operation of the Trump Presidency.  While the sketchy details were reported widely in the press, the press did not highlight the folly of relying on countries like Yemen for America’s energy supply.

Will the Trump Administration Provide Clear Energy Direction?

Weir and Partners, LLP

 

Will a new Trump Administration offer some clear energy direction to replace the often  conflicting signals that came from the Obama Administration? Perhaps.

With one week to go before the Donald Trump Presidency, the Obama Administration’s final energy moves remain curious.  Just a few weeks after refusing to finish the Dakota Access Pipeline, the Administration went the other way on Atlantic Sunrise.

Right before the new year, FERC gave the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline long-awaited good news by issuing a favorable Environmental Impact Statement.  Based on that, Williams Partners announced that it anticipates full service by mid-2018.  The EIS is good news for Williams and for anyone in the Mid-Atlantic whose gas supply will be safeguarded by the connection of the Northeast Pennsylvania Marcellus Shale deposits with a major Northeast pipeline.

The Year Wraps Up With Natural Gas Usage Rising

Natural gas usage keeps rising, despite the hurdles it has faced. Daniel Markind highlights accomplishments and challenges at the state level.

Without a doubt, the election of Donald Trump was the big story of 2016.  While Barak Obama never came out fully against shale gas and oil, and indeed reaped its benefits, their production did not fit his “clean” agenda and the Obama Administration never was welcoming to the new technology or the industry.  The new President will have a different mindset.  It remains to be seen what specific steps Donald Trump will take, and what reaction those steps will engender.

At the state level, the gas and oil supply glut is over and 2017 looks more promising than 2016, albeit with numerous challenges.  Among the most interesting states, here are some of the highlights:

.

PA shale gas has already delivered energy savings to so many families & businesses in the Commonwealth, the PennEast will deliver those saving even further.

Residents across Pennsylvania take comfort. If you use natural gas or electricity (increasingly fueled by natural gas) for heating, cooking and everyday uses, Pennsylvania’s natural gas producers are ready for this upcoming winter.

At Cabot, we produce over 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas every day from Pennsylvania’s vast shale supplies. Cabot’s development in Northeastern Pennsylvania helped the commonwealth become the country’s second-largest natural gas producing state in 2015, as Pennsylvania’s natural gas production exceeded 4.6 trillion cubic feet.

Should “Fossil Fuel” Be Out and “PaleoSolar” In?

Scherrer Resources, Inc., Exton, Pa

 

Fossil fuel (the term that is) is obsolete; paleosolar does a much better job at defining the modern energy in today’s world.

The term “Fossil Fuel” is a fossil itself; a relic of the past. Adoption and use of the term “fossil fuel” was a prior attempt to define in a few words an entire class of energy sources.

The term “fossil fuel” has been around so long that everyone has forgotten where it comes from and thus within the light of the newest energy concepts, this term has now become obsolete.

Atlantic Sunrise: Working Towards U.S. Energy Independence

The Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline is helping move the U.S. towards energy independence by delivering affordable, clean natural gas.

The U.S. is on the verge of energy independence due to its rapid and abundant growth in oil and gas production.  Domestically produced natural gas creates good paying American jobs as it reduces our need for foreign oil.  Pipelines are key to transport the natural gas into areas where supply is currently limited or being imported from other countries.
