Tioga Energy Partners Sues New York State DEC Over Propane Frack

James Leonard
President, National Association of Royalty Owners – New York Chapter

 

Tioga Energy Partners is suing New York State DEC over unconscionable delays in processing its application to do propane fracturing to recover natural gas.

The Snyder Farm Group consisting of five Tioga County landowners along with Tioga Energy Partners, LLC, (TEP) a New York based operator, announced in July, 2015, they had filed an application for a permit to drill a horizontal gas well into the Marcellus Shale and, instead of water, proposed to use liquefied propane to complete the well. Back in May, 2017, I wrote “Evidently, the Department of Environmental Conservation [DEC] has been reviewing the application very, very closely.” As it turns out, “very, very closely” was a gross understatement.

The Green New Deal: Green Trappings for Garden Variety Socialism

 

The green new deal is such incredible nonsense; advanced by naive folks buying, yet again, into the false promises of collectivism, socialism and statism.

One by one we have seen the 2020 candidates for the Democratic nomination, both presumed and declared, voice support for a “Green New Deal.” While some of these candidates may simply be mouthing the words to assuage the more rabid elements of the environmental far left, the mere fact that this idea is being taken seriously should be of concern to every freedom loving American. The Green New Deal is truly a Greenist Manifesto, a call for reviving old socialist ideas but this time with green characteristics.

While there is not yet any actual legislative proposal to evaluate, we do have a list of proposed policies that a coalition of interests, fronted by newly elected Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, developed in the hopes of providing guidance to the newly created House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis.

The Road to Carbon Neutrality Is Long and Expensive Without Gas

Cuomo's Legacy - Dick DowneyRichard Downey
Unatego Area Landowners Association

 

 

Richard Downey explains how carbon neutrality is very hard to accomplish using expensive renewables, the best path is natural gas.

Two reports and a conference warn that climate is warming due to human activity, ie. greenhouse gases (GHG.) This warming will “disrupt many areas of life,” affecting trade and precipitating conflicts.

Let’s assume for the moment that the data warrants the conclusion, man-made GHGs are the cause of global warming. How do we solve this problem? What works?

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

Russian LNG and oil are keeping stubborn New England suppied with energy but the real answer—Marcellus Shale gas—is but a hop, skip and pipeline away..

New England refuses to build new natural gas transmission pipelines to carry abundant, cheap, clean-burning Marcellus Shale gas to the region–and instead continues to rely on imported LNG from Russia and burning dirty fuel oil to generate electricity when the nights get really cold.

Two Energy Futures, Which One Do We Want? It Should Be Obvious!

energy futuresRobert Bradley, Jr.
Founder and CEO of the Institute for Energy Research

Free markets will deliver the best, the cleanest and the least expensive of energy futures. We forget that to our great peril as some propose naive answers.

There are two energy futures for America. One is freedom and prosperity. The other is politics, conflict, and waste. As with other goods and services, energy’s availability and affordability will depend on whether natural incentives and economic law are respected or hampered by government policy.
