PA 12th District Congressman Fred Keller sang the praises of natural gas development as he visited Lackawanna College’s School of Petroleum & Natural Gas.

When Fred Keller successfully defeated his Democratic rival in a special election in May to replace the resigning Tom Marino as the representative of Pennsylvania’s 12th District, he essentially inherited one of the most gas-rich regions in the state, if not the nation. On Monday, Fred Keller toured facilities in Susquehanna County, inarguably the most prolific gas producer in the Commonwealth.

Is Wind Power, Having Inflated Electric Prices, Done in Germany?

 ...

Wind power has successfully exploded electricity prices in Germany, turned its neighbors into enemies and cost a fortune. Has it, at last, run its course?

New onshore wind energy is in a steep decline in Germany. The expansion of onshore wind power in the first half of this year is at its lowest level since the introduction of Germany’s Renewable Energy Act in 2000. There were only 231 megawatts of new onshore wind capacity installed in Germany during the first half of 2019—an 82 percent decline compared to the first half of 2018. Wind Europe, the region’s wind energy trade association, is expecting Germany to install between 1 gigawatt and 2 gigawatts of wind energy in 2019, which is significantly below the 4.3 gigawatts per year installed on average over the past 5 years.

Leadership: Toby Rice and EQT Plan to Make Money on $2.00 Gas

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

 

Toby Rice is not your typical corporate honcho. He tackles challenges in new and different ways. He’s truly leading EQT and aims to make money on $2 gas.

For years MDN has observed that Cabot Oil & Gas is one of the few Marcellus/Utica drilling companies that can “spin straw into gold” – meaning it makes money on selling natural gas even when the price of that gas is in the basement. The new management at EQT aims to turn their company into a spinning-straw-into-gold company too.

… 

The Northern Tier Industrial & Education Consortium (NTIEC) just gave students from four counties some real life experience in natural gas development.

Students from four northern tier counties recently took part in the first Energy & Oilfield Career Summer Experience, learning about career opportunities in the natural gas industry and visiting active gas sites, in addition to participating in discussions held at the Lackawanna College School of Petroleum and Natural Gas (LC School of PNG) in New Milford. The three-day program was coordinated by the Northern Tier Industrial & Education Consortium (NTIEC) and sponsored by several industry partners.

EV Subsidies, Like Most Green Scams, Are “Robin-Hood-in-Reverse Policy”

Keep It Grounded In Fact
(American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers)

  
 

EV subsidies are disgusting because they principally benefit well-off trendy folks who can well afford electric vehicles without help from ordinary taxpayers.

When will EV proponents learn that attempting to manipulate consumer choice (and the free market) doesn’t end well? If California and Colorado are any indication, the answer is “not any time soon.”

Michael Moore, the radical movie guy who has made millions attacking capitalism, has turned against renewables, realizing they’re mostly a hedge-fund scam.

Michael Moore’s new documentary on renewable energy, Planet of the Humans, has put the alternative-energy lobby on notice. Early screenings have prompted great applause, so get ready for the Washington, DC, climate PR machine to fight back.

Dietrich Theater: Sustainability Takes on New Meaning at Cultural Center

The Dietrich Theater in Tunkhannock is taking on a whole new life; one of sustainability tied to that of the community as a whole with help from natural gas.

The Wyoming County Cultural Center in Tunkhannock is much more than a movie theater. While the Dietrich Theater at its core continues to make memories for families, friends and those enjoying “date nights,” the iconic building near the center of the county seat has evolved into a hub for arts and education for residents of all ages. In an average year, more than 80,000 people walk through the doors of the Dietrich Theater.

Northern Access Pipeline Project Gets Another “Nyet” from Cuomo’s DEC

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

 

Northern Access Pipeline developer NFG has received another denial of water quality certification from Andrew Cuomo’s DEC but the project will get built.

Once again, the New York Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC), a corrupt political tool in the hands of an autocratic governor, Andrew Cuomo, has issued a denial of a federal Clean Water Act Section 401 water quality certification for the National Fuel Gas Company’s Northern Access Pipeline project. Fortunately, DEC’s rejection doesn’t mean a hill of beans since the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) overruled the DEC last year.

Climate Change Discussions Need to Include A Few Cold Facts

Steingraber - Tom Reynolds Reports

Tom Reynolds
Co-Founder of Dryden Safe Energy Coalition

 

Climate change arguments that start with “we’ve only got 10 years…” aren’t doing anything whatsoever for the planet. But, natural gas is doing lots.

The far left finally got something right when they started using the phrase “climate change”.  Not just because it covers all the opposing possibilities that they have been alternately trumpeting but because the climate is subject to frequent short-term fluctuations, which the far left can use to create the hysteria they crave. The far-left’s rhetoric tries to keep us narrowly focused instead of looking for context in the bigger picture. Let’s look at the bigger picture of Ice Ages and their opposite, the NON-Ice Ages for more insight on “climate change.”
