External Affairs Coordinator, Cabot Oil & Gas
The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM talked about natural gas production, carbon emissions, pipeline skepticism and much more last week.
Every Saturday, Kevin Lynn of Linde Corporation and I co-host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week we had Commissioner Alan Hall as a guest.
The Shale Gas News is typically broadcast live and our December 12th program (click above) covered the following new territory (see news excerpts below):
- EIA: NatGas Production AND Consumption Hits All-Time High in 2015. NatGas production in 2015 will reach a record-high of 79.58 billion cubic feet per day of production, which will top 2014’s record of 74.89 Bcf/d.
- US Will Be Net Gas Exporter Starting Next Year, Thx to Marcellus. The U.S. is on course to become a net gas exporter in 2017, Jan Stuart, global energy economist at Credit Suisse Group AG in New York, said in a note to clients Wednesday.
- Global Carbon Emissions Growth to Stall in 2015 – Research. Growth in global carbon dioxide emissions is expected to slow for a second year running in 2015, in spite of economic growth, after typically rising by around 2 to 3 percent since the turn.
- NEPA Electric Plant Converted from Coal to NatGas a Huge Success. That plant, owned and operated by UGI, reduced sulfur dioxide emissions by 99%, and reduced nitrogen oxide emissions by 95%.
- Letter Writing War Erupts Over Jessup, PA Gas-Fired Power Plant. An interesting back and forth in letters to the editor of the Democrat-run Scranton Times-Tribune over the proposed electric generating plant in Jessup, PA.
- Susquehanna County Residents Love Burning Locally Produced Gas. All of Cabot’s PA wells are located in that one county, and Cabot produces (at last check) over 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas PER DAY.
- Natural Gas Pipeline Encounters Skepticism in Windham. New England emissions rose last winter, after a period of decline, because the region had to turn to coal in the absence of sufficient gas.
