MSC: Proposed Ban on Natural Gas Development ‘Defies Sound Science, Responsible Policymaking’

The Delaware River Basin Commission’s proposed ban on safe, responsible natural gas development “improperly infringes on property rights” and is motivated by political considerations instead of being based on sound science, the Marcellus Shale Coalition said in a public comment filed today. MSC’s submission of testimony to the commission comes as the comment period closes […]

While Shell Chemicals’ ethane cracker – currently under construction in Beaver County – is the first major petrochemical facility to be built outside the […]
