External Affairs Coordinator, Cabot Oil & Gas
The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM talked about the EPA fracking study, imports, Harvard’s new study and much more this week.
Every Saturday, Kevin Lynn of Linde Corporation and I co-host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas.
The Shale Gas News is typically broadcast live and this past Saturday’s program, the podcast of which is AVAILABLE HERE, covered the following new territory (see news excerpts below) and included an interview with Cabot Oil & Gas Director of External Affairs George Stark, along with all this:
- EPA Releases Water Studies for NEPA & SWPA: Fracking is Safe in PA. None of the nightmare scenarios about fracking and water have come true.
- Harvard Study: Fracking is Safe, Profitable, Good for Environment! Harvard University published a report that says fracking is a good thing (when done right) and that it will create 3.8 million new jobs by 2030 AND lower carbon emissions.
- EPA’s Fracking Finding May Prove a Boon for Industry. The study “did not find evidence” of “widespread, systemic impacts on drinking water resources” by the controversial oil and gas extraction process.
- EPA Report Shows Fracking’s Negligible Impact On Drinking Water Worth The Risks. There is no evidence that these mechanisms have led to widespread, systematic impacts on drinking water resources in the United States; and NY Biz Group, Congressman Ask Cuomo to Lift NY Frack Ban In light of the federal EPA study released yesterday stating fracking doesn’t pollute groundwater supplies
- MSC Devastating Critique of “Low Birth Weight Near Fracking” Study. This study was not peer-reviewed and uses thoroughly debunked ‘research’ as its basis. It also admits “associations do not imply causation.”
- New Marcellus-fired Electric Plant Coming to Cambria County, PA. A Boston company wants to build a $900 million natural gas-fired power plant in western Pennsylvania.
- Natural Gas Production Grows While Imports Decline. The natural gas production boom has resulted in the United States exporting liquefied natural gas as early as the end of this year, making Europe less dependent on Russia for natural gas.
