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 […]

Pa. Drives Increase in U.S. Natural Gas Abundance

Pennsylvania continues to lead America’s energy revolution, driving the increase in proved natural gas reserves, according to newly released government data. The U.S. Energy Information Agency (EIA) report shows the keystone state “had the second-largest total natural gas reserves in 2014” and added 10.4 trillion cubic feet of proved reserves thanks to the “continued development […]
