Cabot’s Fill a Glass with Hope program, which provides milk to help local families in Susquehanna County, has exceeded its goal beyond expectation.

Brittany Ramos recently detailed on Well Said the extraordinary work by Feeding Pennsylvania to bring fresh milk to Pennsylvania families in need through the Fill a Glass with Hope program. In 2016, the inaugural year, Feeding Pennsylvania announced an ambitious goal of distributing 2 million servings of milk. And at the 2017 Farm Show, Feeding Pennsylvania Executive Director Jane Clements-Smith announced 2.3 million servings of milk were distributed, far above the original goal.

Thanks to Cabot & Williams the students in the welding program at Columbia-Montour AVTS now have the opportunity to practice on actual pipeline material.

On Wednesday afternoon a large truck rolled up to Columbia-Montour Area Vocational-Technical School carrying $30,000 in materials for students of the school’s welding program.

WNEP was on hand to capture the delivery:

SOUTH CENTRE TOWNSHIP — Students in a vocational welding program have something to look forward to when they go back to school this fall. Two natural gas companies gave the school in Columbia County a big donation which directly helps the welding program.

PA Goes After Upstate NY Businesses Abandoned by Cuomo

Constitution Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Andrew Cuomo’s determination to make a wilderness of Upstate NY is leading to Pennsylvanians recruiting abandoned businesses to the Commonwealth.

There are consequences to the craven behavior of miscreants. Others are motivated to deal with that behavior or take advantage of it. That’s what’s happening to Andrew Cuomo, New York State’s erstwhile governor who long ago abandoned the real job for the sake of playing political crime boss and left Upstate to the NRDC gang to make a wilderness of it.

Cuomo redefined Upstate NY as Buffalo for the sake of using a cool billion of taxpayer money to reward his cronies with specials deals and opted to write off everything between there and NYC – after all, there are no votes for him in that flyover zone anyway. So, he killed fracking. He’s trying to kill the Constitution Pipeline. Upstaters, though, do have options as their neighbors from Pennsylvania have noticed and are now actively recruiting Upstate NY business to run for the wall and escape the corrupt Empire State while the Checkpoint Charlie guards are distracted by Preet Bharara’s hot pursuit of the governor.

Susquehanna County: Ripe with Opportunities

shale gas news - desRosiers_headshotBill desRosiers
External Affairs Coordinator, Cabot Oil & Gas

 

Susquehanna County is a great place for new businesses, offering infrastructure and abundant, low cost natural gas, rail access and interstate connections.

“A week doesn’t go by where I don’t get a call from some interested company looking at elements here [Susquehanna County].”

– Tony Ventello, Executive Director of the Progress Authority

Abundant opportunities. Business expansion. Strong infrastructure. Three phrases not associated with Susquehanna County, traditionally. But over last eight years, the development of the Marcellus Shale in the County has changed this once agriculture dominated economy into a potent opportunity for value-added growth in manufacturing, gas to liquids (GTL), and power generation.

Diaz Manufacturing will be building a new 50,000 sq. ft. warehouse, creating new, full time jobs, thanks to a water and natural gas expansion project.

Last week, Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin today announced a substantial grant of $446,000 to expand a water line in Susquehanna County which will help spur the growth of Diaz Manufacturing and add 20 jobs to the area. The expansion of the water and natural gas infrastructure are key to growing jobs and promoting manufacturing in the area.

Constitution Pipeline Cleared to Cut Trees (In PA)

fracking success story

Natural Gas NOW

 

FERC has authorized the Constitution Pipeline to begin cutting trees in Pennsylvania. Now, for New York State! Time to get it done.

That didn’t take long. The folks at Williams, late last night, put out a news release announcing the Constitution Pipeline has been cleared by FERC to begin cutting trees in Pennsylvania, notwithstanding the NRDC’s Attorney General making a last minute attempt to stop it in New York as a sop to his high-brow radical friends. There’s a message here for Governor Cuomo, too; that he’d better issue that water quality certification now if he wants any input because this thing is ready for a FERC waiver if he doesn’t finally get off his politically corrupt butt.

The Fracking Success Story New York Doesn’t Want

fracking success story

Tom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

 

New York State, blinded by politically correctness and ideology that knows no bounds, refuses to see the fracking success story right across the border.

There are, we’re told from a young age, none so blind as those who refuse to see. It is the M.O. for New York State government, where every decision or refusal to act owes its birth in a self-righteous condescending desire to let the world know just how special New Yorkers are. Facts are irrelevant, logic has no place and appearances and style are all there is. It is this attitude that has condemned Upstate New Yorkers to the “pastoral poverty” so typical of the region north of Orange County and west of the Hudson; the biggest thing the policy-makers refuse to see being the fracking success story across the border in Pennsylvania.

Susquehanna County Burns Locally Produced Gas

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

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

 

Thanks to pipeline infrastructure, the residents of Susquehanna County are really benefiting by burning their own low cost, locally produced natural gas.

Susquehanna County, PA, which sits just across the border from where MDN is written in Broome County, NY, is one of the miracles in the Marcellus Shale. Cabot Oil & Gas, among a few other drillers, have extensive operations in Susquehanna County. In fact, all of Cabot’s PA wells are located in that one county, and Cabot produces (at last check) over 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas PER DAY. It’s an amazing story.

One of the ironies has always been that rural counties like Susquehanna that produce natural gas often aren’t able to use the gas they produce due to lack of pipeline infrastructure. The entire county has 43,000 residents (11,700 families). The largest “city” in Susquehanna County is the county seat of Montrose, population 1,600 (750 households).

Is That All There Is, Tom Wilber?

PennFuture - Tom ShepstoneTom Shepstone

Tom Wilber has now completed his “The Promise of Fracking: Lessons from Pennsylvania” series and we’re left saying “Is that all there is, Tom?”

When I reviewed the first part of the new Tom Wilber series here, I introduced it with this overview:

The death of real journalism and the rise of advocacy journalism is marked not so much by what is said but, rather, by what is not said. That is Tom Wilber.

Now, all three segments have been published (Part 1Part 2Part 3) and we’ve had additional observations from Johnny Williams as well as an in-depth analysis by Nicole Jacobs over at Energy In Depth and we’ve all concluded the same thing; it’s what’s been left out that’s important to this series. But, there’s another troubling aspect as well. The series is nothing but a rehash of old accusations, long ago rendered false or irrelevant, by a newspaper reporter from the advocacy school of journalism, who thought he could make his name writing a book that recycled his old fracking stories, only to find himself back at the same newspaper, regurgitating them yet again. After reading the whole thing, I can only ask if that’s all there is.
