… 

The Lackawanna College School of Petroleum & Natural Gas has trained many local residents for the natural gas industry and just celebrated with a clay shoot.

After five years of growth under Cabot Oil & Gas, the annual Sporting Clay Tournament benefiting the Lackawanna College School of Petroleum & Natural Gas was enjoyed once again by hundreds of sportsmen and women and corporate sponsors on Sept. 27. The new twist this year is that the friendly competition was managed by the college, its staff, and its students. Not only does the event provide funding for equipment, scholarships, and programs, it affords students and potential employers an opportunity to meet face-to-face under recreational circumstances.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, contrary to Andrew Cuomo, understands what real governance is and it’s following the law, not just pandering to your base.

The pressure DC swamp dwellers and anti-fossil fuelers from across the country (indeed from across the world) have put on Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (a Democrat) has been intense. They want Northam to abuse his executive authority, in contravention of the law, and block both the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) and Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) projects in his state.  He’s standing with the law.

Bill McKibben Gives Another Wink and Nod to Extremists

natural gas industry

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

  

Bill McKibben may be the world’s premier charlatan, a Rockefeller hired gun and phony man of reason, who just loves giving the wink and nod to extremists.

Last week’s trial against the three “valve turners” who temporarily shut down two Enbridge Energy pipelines was supposed to be the “holy grail of climate activism” because these were the first climate activists granted permission to use the necessity defense during trial. “The whole planet will be inside a single courtroom the day this trial begins,” crowed Bill McKibben, the titular head of the “Keep It in the Ground Movement.”

Instead, the judge dismissed the charges against Emily Johnston and her co-conspirators before the defense could even make their opening statement. No one was more disappointed by this “victory” than McKibben.

Germany Shows Renewables Are No Formula for Replacing Coal

environmental extremists.

Renewables do nothing to reduce demand for coal. Just look at Germany. Natural gas is the one and only thing offering the potential to reduce emissions.

According to the United Nations’s latest report, to meet the goals of the Paris agreement and reduce other risks, 2010 levels of global carbon dioxide emissions would need to be halved by 2030, and totally end around 2050. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) indicates that either limiting or ending emissions is not enough—carbon dioxide already existing in the atmosphere would have to be captured to stop global warming from becoming more severe.

How We Can Forge the Future of the Keystone State with Shale Energy

Pennsylvania has a window of opportunity to forge the future for its young residents by developing new industry that builds on our shale energy resources.

One year ago Chevron Appalachia and People’s Natural Gas teamed up to release a study called “Forge the Future: Pennsylvania’s Path To An Advanced, Energy-Enabled Economy.” Rather than wait around for “someone else” to flesh out a plan to leverage what Chevron and People’s call a $60 billion (!) opportunity in PA, they went ahead and did it themselves. Smart people.

Tensions are growing over missing American green card holder but fracking and shale gas help calm Saudi oil embargo threats. 

While America was transfixed with the sordid spectacle of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, the news that really can have international impact was playing out in Istanbul, Turkey.  On Thursday its ramifications began being felt in this country.  Thanks to our shale industry, however, President Trump will have many more options going forward than otherwise.

New Gas-Fired Power Plants in Appalachian Basin Also Fire Economy

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

There are 29 new gas-fired power plants coming to the Appalachian Basin bringing affordable American energy, jobs and economic benefits.

Each large (over 475 megawatts) gas-fired electric power plant is an economic bonanza. The plants cost hundreds of millions of dollars to build–over a billion dollars for the largest plants. They provide hundreds of jobs during construction, jobs that last several years. They provide millions in tax revenue to local municipalities and schools. And best of all, each one of these plants uses an enormous amount of Marcellus and Utica Shale gas. There are 29 of these incredible projects already built or in various stages of planning and construction in PA, OH and WV. We have the list below.

Andrew Cuomo Importing German Energiewende: Expect the Same Result

Cuomo's Legacy - Dick DowneyRichard Downey

Andrew Cuomo is intent upon bringing the German Energiewende to New York State. It can expect the same pathetic results; no emissions gains and high prices.

In Upstate New York, economic growth and jobs that retrain young families depend on affordable energy. At this time, renewables won’t cut it. They cost too much. Three stories; California, Germany, and South Australia.
