Will the Trump Administration Provide Clear Energy Direction?

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

Constitution Pipeline - MarkindDaniel B. Markind, Esq.

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:

Natural Gas Pipelines Deliver Energy Savings

.
..

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?

Marcellus-Utica ShaleJim Scherrer
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

Natural Gas NOWConnie Mellin

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.

Shale Gas News – October 15, 2016

External Affairs Coordinator, Cabot Oil & Gas

 

The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, talked about drilling regulations, emissions, Dakota Access and much more last week.

Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week we had Kevin Lynn and Kevin Sunday as guests. We discussed elections and the impact on energy each will have.

PA Shale Gas Exports Saving Scottish Jobs

….
….

Shale gas exports from Pennsylvania has already saved 10,000 Scottish jobs by providing an inexpensive solution for running the refinery.

Something observed in Scotland recently speaks to just how important shale gas is to not only Washington County and Southwest Pennsylvania where the story starts, but the whole world. There was an article in The Scotsman quoting a fellow named Jim Ratliffe. He happens to be the owner of a refinery in a place called Grangemouth located in the Central Belt of the Scottish mainland in the Forth Valley.

It Is Fracking That Is Killing Coal, Not the EPA

….
….

A new study by Case Western Reserve University says shale gas—fracking—is killing coal, not the EPA.

We are “all of the above” in our energy philosophy here are NaturalGasNOW. We do, though, favor natural gas for the obvious reasons. It is economical to produce, clean burning, stimulates rural development and offers urban consumers a tremendous energy bargain. Fracking, in combination with horizontal drilling, has produced a shale revolution, in fact. That revolution hasn’t been kind to coal and a new Case Western Reserve University documents this fact. It says the EPA isn’t nearly to blame for coal’s problems. It’s all about the low cost of fracking compared to the value obtained.

There’s NOAA Denying It: Methane Issue Isn’t One

delaware riverkeeper - Jim Willis reports

Jim Willis
Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

The lengths to which some warmists will go to blame natural gas for methane issues is amazing but there’s NOAA denying the industry isn’t the issue.

NOAA–the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration–contains some of the biggest kool-aid drinking man-made global warming fanatics on the planet. So we found it interesting that the mighty NOAA has just released new research that finds yes, so-called “fugitive” methane that escapes into the atmosphere is up–way up. And yes, oil and gas drilling contributes WAY MORE to the fugitive methane problem “than previously thought.” And yes, methane leaks from fossil fuel development represents something like 20-25% of of the total “problem.”

But then those same researchers, in little teeny tiny type add this (emphasis added):

However, the findings also confirm other work by NOAA scientists that conclude fossil fuel facilities are not directly responsible for the increased rate of global atmospheric methane emissions measured in the atmosphere since 2007.

That is, while the shale revolution has grown exponentially over the past 10 years, and while the rate of fugitive methane has grown during that same period–the growth has NOT come from oil and gas development. Instead, it’s coming from rice paddies and cow farts/burps.

Coordinator, External Affairs

Brittany Ramos sat down with John Papso of Cabot and discussed the moment he realized the mammoth production they had with their first horizontal well.

We recently posted an internal memo from Cabot’s President, Chairman and CEO, Dan Dinges, to employees congratulating them on several milestones.

In case you missed it:

  • Cabot spudded its first Marcellus well, the Teel 1, on 9/26/06
  • In the last 18 months we have hit these milestones in the Marcellus:
    • 500 wells drilled
    • 10,000 frac stages completed
    • 2.5 TCF cumulative production
