USGS: Texas and Gulf Coast Home to US’ “Largest Continuous Natural Gas” Resources

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) released two new assessments last week, finding that the Bossier and Haynesville formations of the Gulf Coast hold an estimated 304.4 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of undiscovered, technically recoverable natural gas resources. Together, these formations represent the “largest continuous natural gas assessment” ever conducted by USGS. Covering an area…

The American Rivers “Most Endangered” Scam

Tom Shepstone Shepstone Management Company, Inc. … …   American Rivers, an organization funded by America’s elite with a lot of help from taxpayers, runs a “Most Endangered River” scam that is a complete joke. National Geographic, which is anything but the non-political image it cultivates, just helped promote one of the stupid pet tricks of…

Brainwash: Columbus OH Pre-K Kids Forced to Bash WNF Fracking

This is maddening, angering, and so far out of line we hope the “teachers” involved are summarily fired. NOW. Today. A group of 3 to 5 year-olds at the Little Dreamers, Big Believers day-care center in Columbus, OH–precious, innocent children who can’t comprehend much beyond when their next meal or nap is coming–have been manipulated…

New Lawsuit in Dimock for Old Claim by Known Anti – Ray Kemble

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste.” That sentiment was famously mouthed by Rahm Emaneul, first chief of staff during Barack Hussein Obama’s reign of terror, later (and still) the highly unpopular mayor of Chicago. That philosophy also applies to other leftists, like anti-driller Ray Kemble, who lives in Dimock Township, PA. Kemble…

PA PUC Wants Act 13 Language Changed to Avoid Stripper Abuse

It seems the controversy in Pennsylvania over the Snyder Brothers’ strippers isn’t going to end any time soon. No, not those kinds of strippers, silly! We’re talking about stripper wells, which are defined in PA as wells that produce less than 90 thousand cubic feet (Mcf) for a one month period. Stripper wells are vertical…

2 PA Townships Won’t Enforce “Home Rule” Against Injection Wells

We’ve previously reported on the story of two Pennsylvania towns that were either hoodwinked, or perhaps willing led astray, by the radical Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) into passing (now overturned) bans on fracking and injection wells in their towns–Highland Twp (Elk County) and Grant Twp (Indiana County). The two townships thought they would…

Williams Responds to Tired Old Claim Atlantic Coast Exports Gas

One of the arguments anti-pipeline advocates are attempting to use to slow down the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline project in Pennsylvania is to argue there aren’t enough Federal Energy Regulatory (FERC) Commissioners to listen to them complain. When FERC Chairman Norman “cry baby” Bay left in a huff on Feb. 3, FERC was left with just…

Lack of Pipeline Approvals by Cuomo = Future Power Outages in NY

New York Gov. Cuomo has now blocked the Constitution Pipeline from getting built (see NY Gov. Cuomo Refuses to Grant Permits for Constitution Pipeline), and the Northern Access Pipeline project (see Cuomo’s Corrupt NY DEC Blocks NFG Northern Access Pipeline Permit). Those two projects are critical–not only for Pennsylvania drillers, but for NY’s natural gas…

Beck Energy Still Fighting Munroe Falls, Years Later

Last June MDN shared with you the news that Munroe Falls (Summit County), OH had filed yet another frivolous lawsuit against Beck Energy to prevent drilling–after already losing a similar case before the Ohio Supreme Court (see Munroe Falls Won’t Let it Go: Files New Lawsuit Against Beck Energy). MDN received a statement from Beck…
