The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, 1510 AM, 1600 AM, 104.1 FM and Sundays on YesFM, talked about EU LNG imports, Offshore Drilling Plan, Northern Access Pipeline and much more last week.

The Shale Gas News has grown again to the Williamsport area on stations WEJS 1600 AM & 104.1 FM. The Shale Gas News is now broadcasting in Bradford, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lebanon, Luzerne, Lycoming, Pike, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Tioga and Wayne Counties, as well as in greater central PA and now the Williamsport area. The Shale Gas News is aired on Saturday or Sunday depending on the station.

Every Saturday Rusty Fender, Matt Henderson and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things shale gas.  This week, as a guest, we had Stephanie Catarino Wissman, Executive Director, API-PA.

Shale Gas News

The Shale Gas News, typically, is broadcast live. On the July 9th show (click above), we covered the following new natural gas territory (see news excerpts below):

  • EU Imports More U.S. LNG Than Russian Pipeline Gas For The First Time Ever. For the first time ever, the European Union has imported in June more liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States than gas via pipeline from Russia, as Moscow slashed supply to Europe earlier this month, Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA), said on Thursday.
  • U.S. raises $22 mln from Western oil and gas auctions. The United States on Thursday raised about $22 million from oil and gas auctions in seven Western states, with drillers passing on nearly half of the acreage offered. The sales of leases on public land were the Biden administration’s first to the oil and gas industry and were viewed as a test of the industry’s appetite for federal acreage with fuel prices soaring.
  • EPA Targets Permian Basin, Widening Biden’s War On Oil And Gas. During an interview with Brazil’s Agencia Estadio news service this week, I told the reporter that one of the reasons why I characterized the Biden energy policies as “confused” in a recent story is because we so often see the President saying one thing in public as his appointees in the federal bureaucracy are doing the opposite.
  • Biden Administration Delays Rollout of Offshore Drilling Plan. The Biden administration on June 30 delayed the rollout of a proposed five-year offshore oil and gas development plan that had been promised by the end of the month, according to sources. Interior Department Secretary Deb Haaland in May had vowed to unveil the draft proposal ahead of the June 30 expiration of the current plan. The department will not be able to hold any offshore oil and gas lease sales until a new plan is finalized.
  • U.S. gives NFG more time to build Northern Access natgas pipeline. U.S. regulators have given National Fuel Gas Co (NFG) (NFG.N) more time to build its proposed Northern Access natural gas pipeline project in Pennsylvania and New York. The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on Wednesday approved NFG’s January request for a 35-month extension to build the project by December 2024.
  • Supreme Court restricts EPA’s ability to go big on climate. EPA’s ability to curb greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power plants was sharply curtailed, but not eliminated, by a Supreme Court ruling yesterday that underscores the challenges of achieving significant climate gains in the United States. In a 6-3 opinion on the most significant climate change case to reach the high court in a decade, the justices found that Congress did not give EPA the authority to impose a sweeping emissions rule like the Obama-era Clean Power Plan, a proposal that was never applied in the real world.
