Why don’t they do more? We’re in a war right now, with people who control our oil.

Several years ago, when experts believed the United States was running out of natural gas, natural gas import facilities where being built to meet our nation’s growing energy needs. At that time, serious discussions were underway among some foreign countries — notably Iran, Russia and Venezuela – aimed at forming an OPEC-like natural gas cartel. […]

Why aren’t companies releasing the names of ALL chemicals being used? It should not be proprietary.

It’s true that some additives used in the hydraulic fracturing process are considered proprietary, but we’re talking about a small fraction of the overall universe of additives. The truth is, even those additives that are considered proprietary, regulators and first responders have access to this information in the event of an emergency or a water […]

Why did the gas industry lobby for and succeed in getting an exemption from the Clean Water Act?

We’ve been asked on occasion whether the natural gas industry — specifically hydraulic fracturing — earned an exemption from a series of federal laws, including the Safe Drinking Water Act, as part of the bipartisan 2005 energy bill. The short and factual answer is no. Hydraulic fracturing has never been regulated under this law. Fracturing, […]

How many new jobs will be developed?

Many are calling the shale boom an “American revolution” or an “economic renaissance” and we are proud to say, that the […]

By The Numbers: Natural Gas Powering America’s Economic Engine

Pittsburgh, Pa. – Earlier this week, President Obama’s nominee to be the next U.S. secretary of energy, Ernest Moniz, told Congress that “‘a stunning increase’ in production of domestic natural gas in recent years was nothing less than a ‘revolution’ that has led to reduced emissions of carbon dioxide,” as the Associated Press reports under […]
