MSC in Philadelphia Inquirer: Shale Revolution Fulfills Promise on Jobs, Energy, Environment

While the daily headlines and nonstop, 24-hour news cycles focus overwhelmingly on issues that often divide the nation, it can be easy to lose sight of where common ground exists and what shared commitments bring us together. And there’s more that unites us – business and labor as well as Republicans, Democrats, and independents – […]

MSC in Crain’s Cleveland Business Journal: Energy Security Should Be a Bipartisan Issue

Ninety-two years ago, Republicans gathered in Cleveland for the party’s convention, adopting a platform with planks centered on the economy, taxation, foreign relations, and, in one of the early mentions of energy policy, the safe development of America’s abundant natural resources. “The natural resources of the country belong to all the people. … The government […]

MSC in Beaver County Times: Cracker Plant Leads Manufacturing Comeback

Pennsylvania manufacturing and the hard-working men and women of the commonwealth that it employs have long been the backbone to our state and nation’s economy. Steel produced in the Keystone State built the ships and planes that carried us to victory in World War II and our abundant raw materials have powered our nation and […]

MSC in Phila. Inq.: Industry Remains Committed to Rigorous Regulations

A letter failed to acknowledge the strong natural-gas development regulations that protect our environment (“Industry needs rules,” Thursday). We have some of the nation’s most rigorous regulations. As former Gov. Ed Rendell and his then-Dept. of Environmental Protection Secretary John Hanger stated, “Pennsylvania has the strongest enforcement program of any state with gas drilling.” There are […]

MSC in Butler Eagle: Pa. Has Effective, Modernized Regulations

Two recent letters (“Middlesex Shortfall”, Dec. 1 and “Still Opposed to Rex”, Dec. 9) do a tremendous disservice to your readers, which include my Butler County neighbors, family and friends. Our dialogue about these important issues must be fact- and science-based — and it must be civil. Pennsylvania has an effective and modernized regulatory framework […]

MSC in Phila. Daily News: Higher Energy Taxes Will Threaten Growth

Friday’s editorial, “Who Do They Work For?” provides a misleading representation of natural-gas development in Pennsylvania, while completely ignoring the meaningful economic and environmental contributions Marcellus Shale development has delivered for the commonwealth. Philadelphians don’t have to look far to see the benefits. Thanks to shale, refineries in South Philadelphia and Delaware County that were […]

MSC in Standard Speaker: Pa. has a Strong Regulatory Framework

A recent article, “New study indicates gas drilling could impact rivers, streams,” Nov. 16, about the safe and tightly regulated development of natural gas was unfortunately short on actual facts. Despite the paper’s suggestive headline, Wilkes professor Ken Klemow makes clear his new study has “not proven anything about whether shale gas development is affecting […]

Shale “an Absolute Winner” for Pennsylvania

Today, MSC president Dave Spigelmyer joined WPGP radio’s Rose Tennent for an in-depth discussion on the significant economic and national security benefits associated with responsible shale development as well as the negative consequences of even higher energy taxes. Highlights from the segment: On Consumer, End Use Benefits “A great story as we enter this winter season is natural gas prices are less than […]

MSC in LNP: Modernizing Pipelines Delivers Benefits Across Pa.

The Nov. 6 article “Expert foresees problems with pipeline project” fundamentally fails to provide readers with the clear fact that modernizing Pennsylvania’s pipeline infrastructure will deliver shale’s benefits to more consumers and regional manufacturers and strengthen America’s national security. As we continue the safe build-out and modernization of Pennsylvania’s pipeline network, consumers are benefiting in […]

MSC in Pa. Business Central: How Expanding the Shale Industry Benefits All Pennsylvanians

From the tens-of-thousands of hard working Pennsylvanians that make up shale’s broad supply chain to the teachers and school students kept warm – more affordably – in the winter season with reliable natural gas and manufacturers realizing energy savings from shale, every Pennsylvanian is benefitting from our shale revolution. In fact, as the New York […]
