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.

Fracking and Shale Gas Help Calm Saudi Oil Embargo Threats

"Environmentalists" - MarkindDaniel B. Markind, Esq.

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.

The U.S. is increasing its natural gas liquefaction capacity by 1327% over the next five years and transforming the entire global LNG marketplace.

Natural gas from places such as Washington County, Pennsylvania will find its way across the entire world over the next five years. A new study from GlobalData reported on its GlobalTrade blog indicates the degree to which the U.S. is achieving energy dominance in the world, especially with respect to the global LNG marketplace. The numbers are striking.

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

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.

Faux Outrage Over Migratory Bird Treaty Demonstrates Fractivist Duplicity

Greg Walcher
President, Natural Resources Group

 

Fractivists out to kill the oil and gas industry will use any tactic available to do so, as their demagoguery on the Migratory Bird Treaty shows.

How we long for the good old days! That’s the tone of some environmental industry leaders who are screaming bloody murder (literally, not figuratively) about Department of the Interior actions under President Trump. The Department’s re-interpretation of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act is a case in point.

Williams, the Atlantic Sunrise Folks, Do Pipeline Environmentalism

The Williams company is leading the way on something we can rightly call pipeline environmentalism, the linking of the infrastructure to conservation.

The Williams company, of course, is a pipeline developer and operator. It also maintains an on-line newsletter/blog called PipeUp to report on the progress of activities in which the company is involved. The latest post included two stories that caught my attention. Together, they exhibit what I’d describe as a new industry discipline that can be described as pipeline environmentalism. It is the threading of conservation efforts with pipeline infrastructure development. It makes complete sense and Williams is a champion for it.

Enough Hysteria, Madness and Mobocracy: We Need Energy Solutions

DRBC fracking ban - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

It’s time to put the hysteria, the madness and the mobocracy of which extreme environmentalism is a part, behind us. Its time for real energy solutions.

One of our readers wrote me yesterday to bemoan the absolute madness of so much of what counts for debate in today’s society but is really just a dangerous combination of hysteria and mobocracy. She’s completely frustrated with the way environmental extremists, aided by lazy reporters (who, without investigation, treat the former’s tactics as legitimate), have dominated the conversation. She writes:

The angry mob that is the anti-fracking pipeline resistance movement has targeted citizens, regulators, politicians and even FERC commissioners in their homes. It has bald-faced lied for years and, yet, is basically promoted as heroic by the press. Reporters are failing at their job.

She’s correct. It’s time reporters starting asking tough questions of these people and challenged them with a dose of reality. We need real energy solutions, not more nonsense from the unaccomplished and the unthinking.

Cabot Oil & Gas Raises the Curtain for Dietrich Theater in Tunkhannock

Cabot Oil & Gas

 

The natural gas industry supports communities and Cabot Oil & Gas proves it again by devoting funds to the revitalization of Tunkhannock’s Dietrich Theater.

The Dietrich Theater has been cherished for decades in the Tunkhannock community. After its inception in 1936, the theater hosted movie goers when they needed it most. From the height of World War II and steadily through the Vietnam War, the Dietrich Theater was there to take people’s minds off of the worrying events of each decade.

In the late 1980’s, however, the Dietrich Theater ran into some trouble. The theater could no longer compete with the newer mall movie theaters popping up throughout the region. To everyone’s dismay, the Dietrich Theater closed its doors and later suffered structural damages to add to its turmoil. Now, Cabot Oil & Gas is helping.
