MSC Recognizes Earth Day

Pittsburgh, Pa. – In recognition of Earth Day, Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC) president Dave Spigelmyer issued the following statement:

“To shale producers and the robust supply chain that supports this development, who are focused squarely on environmental and workforce safety, every day is Earth Day. Our industry goes to work each day, knowing it is crucial that our tightly-regulated operations are conducted with the highest respect for our environment and the communities where we are privileged to work.

“The results of this deeply shared commitment are clear. Today, CO2 emissions in the United States are lower than they have been in 20 years because of the increased natural gas production and use. Leveraging industry-leading technologies, all within a rigorous regulatory framework, our member companies’ collective work is enhancing our environment and making a positive difference across Pennsylvania and the country.

“Earth Day is a reminder that we all have a part to play in protecting and enhancing our environment today and for generations to come. For our industry, continuous improvement is a matter of course. Our commitment to responsibly develop these abundant, clean-burning resources has never been stronger.”
