As the United States, and the world, enters a long era of increased energy demand we need more than just onshore shale oil and natural gas to meet our energy needs. We will need to make the best possible use of all our resources, including an increased program of offshore leasing that will lead to greater economic strength.
The natural gas surplus generated by the shale revolution has led to several benefits, including lower wellhead prices, reduced imports and rising inventories of natural gas storage. In addition, the cost of drilling new shale wells has dramatically declined. This means that fewer rigs are being employed, but new wells are more productive and cost-efficient.
"...it is no wonder that the public is often confused about air quality in their city, county, state, and nation." That's a gentle way of saying that Americans have been misled by the media and agenda-driven environmental groups.
"Developing our abundant offshore energy resources is a critical part of a robust, forward-looking energy policy that will secure our nation's energy future and strengthen the U.S. energy renaissance."
Warning: low-cost, clean energy may be hazardous to your health.
As veterans, we know that some of our brothers and sisters in uniform struggle to find purpose or a new career after their separation from the military. The fact is that veterans have the skills and background necessary to do these jobs... We can hit both proverbial birds with this infrastructure improvement stone.
There is an interesting dynamic going on in the final days of the Obama administration. Because President-elect Trump is going to push for fossil fuel-friendly policies, there has been a sudden rush to pass policies that will be out of favor after President Obama leaves office.
The concept that economic growth doesn't have to be accompanied by rising carbon emissions - dubbed "decoupling" by the New York Times - has additional detail in a new Brookings Institution report that finds more than 30 states have seen those historical partners delinked and headed in different directions.
As the second-largest natural gas producer in the nation, Pennsylvania has played a key role in the American energy revolution.
If you use natural gas or electricity (increasingly fueled by natural gas) for heating, cooking and everyday uses, Pennsylvania’s natural gas producers are ready for this upcoming winter.
