Ethane cracker plants will bring endless economic opportunities to our region and now is the time to get them up and running.

The sooner we get ethane crackers up and running in our region, the sooner our state can increase the benefits it sees from the natural gas liquid supplies we have. In West Virginia, most of the resources being developed from our shale basins from natural gas is being used for heating homes, fueling vehicles and burning on our stoves.

However, we also have an immense supply of natural gas liquids that will be a critical player in efforts to diversify our economy in other industrial sectors, in addition to what the natural gas industry has already managed to accomplish.

A Mobile Oilfield Learning Unit is helping students across Northeastern Pennsylvania learn about energy thanks to Cabot, Southwestern Energy and Williams.

Youths at schools in three counties will have a better idea of how their math and science studies relate to the natural gas industry by the end of the week, as the Mobile Oilfield Learning Unit (MOLU) makes its way through the region. Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation sponsored the virtual field trip, which made its first stop at Elk Lake Elementary School on Monday.

Students Get Hands On Experience from Cabot Request

… 

Students at Susquehanna County Career & Technology Center were able to use their skills to manufacture a training tool for Cabot Oil & Gas.

As Cabot Oil and Gas develops new technology to further increase productivity of its wells, the close relationship with the Susquehanna County Career and Technology Center (SCCTC) at the Elk Lake High School Campus has resulted once again in a solution to the company’s need for a complex training tool – this time for its employees.

As the pressure in older wells decreases, it becomes more difficult to force excess water to the surface. As the fluid builds up, gas production is adversely affected. The traditional remedy has been to halt production once per day or so and inject detergents to create suds to bring the fluid back up, Cabot production foreman Ryan Bennett explained, but this technique can become inefficient over time.

What Ohioans Need to Know About Serial Protester Vera Scroggins

… 

Vera Scroggins is now moving her attention to Ohio where Cabot Oil & Gas is exploring new territory, but Ohioans need to know a few things about her.

Vera Scroggins is the endearing “golden girl” of fractivist myth, lauded by those eager to treat her as the granny protester who takes on big oil. The truth, though, is a far different thing, which virtually everyone in Susquehanna County and environs knows all too well. Ohioans unfamiliar with Vera’s history can’t be expected to know much about her when she comments on fractivist Facebook posts and the like, but they need to learn quickly as she is already following Cabot Oil & Gas as that company looks to potentially expand its operations into Ashland, Holmes and Richland Counties there. They’ll be shocked when they dig into the matter; Vera Scroggins is no ordinary protester.

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

The Constitution Pipeline asks FERC to rehear their challenge of NYS-DEC’s denial of water quality certification even as it pursues other remedies.

Contrary to stories begin spun by anti-fossil fuel groups, Williams has not given up the fight to build the Constitution Pipeline, a $683 million, 124-mile pipeline from Susquehanna County, PA to Schoharie County, NY to move Marcellus gas into New York State and from there, into New England. The pipeline faces stiff odds.

Sorry Fractivists: Fracking Made Susquehanna County Even Better!

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.

Natural Gas Industry Helps Rescue Nicholson from Ice Jam

Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com

… 

An ice jam buildup in Martins Creek could have proven disastrous for Nicholson, but thanks to the natural gas industry the crisis was diverted.

While a crew from SWN (Southwestern Energy) was breaking for lunch at Germana’s Pizzeria in Nicholson just before noon on Jan. 23, a potential disaster was unfolding in a relatively small stream nearby. Temperatures had risen into the 40s that day, and rain that fell overnight was unable to soak into ground frozen solid during a cold spell.

“Everyone starting noticing that all of the ice had lifted up to the bridge in under an hour, and the water was backing up,” said Dave Bowman, production supervisor at SWN’s regional office on Route 92, where the employees returned and told him of the unusual situation.

Vera Scroggins; Above the Law, Or Just In Contempt of It?

Natural Gas NOW

… 

Vera Scroggins, like so many fractivists, imagines she’s above the law and can act with impunity toward others, but Cabot Oil & Gas is taking her to task.

Vera Scroggins loves the limelight and lives for it, imagining herself as some sort of heroine for defying the rights of others. Her foul-mouthed antics belie the granny activist schtick she markets to the media and she wears her deliberate defiance of authority as a badge of honor among the gallery of rogues with whom she associates. She “plays the martyr” well to a point but, unlike a lot of industry folks who prefer attempting to wish her away, Cabot Oil & Gas has been directly challenging her and showing the world who she really is.

The last time Cabot took Vera to court she exposed herself at court as a very conniving sarcastic individual, which is never a smart thing to do with judges, and she got a $1,000 trespass fine as a result, along with a stern judicial lecture. Now, she’s defied the court itself and Cabot is asking for a bigger penalty. Good!
