Thanks to continued development of the Marcellus Shale, natural gas prices are at their lowest level in 14 years. This means lower heating costs for states with the necessary infrastructure to take advantage of their close proximity to the Marcellus. And that’s great news for American consumers who can use the money they save to pay bills around the holiday season.

Despite being debunked long ago, Josh Fox’s claim that hydraulic fracturing was responsible for methane found in Pennsylvania water wells has taken yet another blow. A recent groundwater study in Pike County, Pennsylvania — completed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the Pike County Conservation District — shows detectable concentrations of methane in 16 of the 20 water wells sampled.

Beaver Run Reservoir shows no adverse effects from Marcellus Shale drilling.

Westmoreland County’s Beaver Run Reservoir supplies drinking water to roughly 130,000 residents in the region. As of 2011, it also supplies cheap natural gas from 37 Marcellus wells, which have been developed in close proximity to the reservoir. Anti-fracking groups and other critics of development have been worried the project would taint the drinking water, but after three years of testing, the water remains unaffected from shale development, according to a new report.

Despite a moratorium on natural gas development, New York will convert an existing coal fired power plant in Newburgh, NY to burn natural gas from Pennsylvania. The project will create at least 50 new jobs, cut local electricity costs and reduce emissions.

My latest letter to PennLive.com - Despite spin from critics, polls favor shale development.

Wright implies natural gas development through fracking is not a bridge fuel, but the facts on renewable development say otherwise. According to U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz: "We should not forget that over the past four to five years, during the shale gas boom, we have seen wind, solar and thermal double in the United States."

Excellent report on the biased journalism the gas & oil industry faces in Pennsylvania.
