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 American energy, pipelines, New York fracking 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 we replayed an interview we had with Tom Pyle of the American Energy Alliance and Institute for Energy Research and with George Stark, Director of External Affairs at Coterra Energy.

Shale Gas News

The Shale Gas News, typically, is broadcast live. On the November 19th show (click above), we covered the following new natural gas territory (see news excerpts below):

  • Ohio Drillers Say They are Ready to “Unleash American Energy” – Yesterday, the Ohio Chamber of Commerce held its “Energy Supply Chain: Present & Future” conference at the Ohio Statehouse Atrium in Columbus. Participants and speakers included oil and natural gas producers, pipeline operators, policymakers, renewable companies, and more. Questions largely centered on the energy transition and how various resources fit into a so-called sustainable future. The upshot was that Ohio’s natural gas (mostly Utica, some Marcellus) is front and center as a driving force for Ohio energy, and the Ohio economy.
  • WV Gov. Justice Presents $1.9M Check to Finish NatGas Pipeline. Yesterday, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice and his English bulldog, named Babydog, presented a check from the state for $1,959,000 to the Mercer County Commission and the Development Authority of Mercer County to help complete a natural gas pipeline that will help bring more economic development to the Bluefield area and Mercer County as a whole. The money will help complete a natural gas pipeline from Cumberland Road in Bluefield where it now ends beneath Route 460.
  • 4th Circus Clown Judges Ready to Toss Another MVP Water Permit. The clown judges who occupy the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit (4th Circus) appear ready to reject another water permit granted by the West Virginia Dept. of Environmental Protection to cross streams and rivers and swamps to finish up the 94% complete Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP). Three judges from the 4th Circus were appointed back in 2017 to hear appeals against the project. All three are profoundly bigoted and prejudiced against natural gas pipeline projects.
  • Fracking May Have Helped Republican Lee Zeldin Almost Win NY Governor Race. Politics is fascinating for us (in case you couldn’t tell when reading MDN). This site often features articles about the intersection of politics and energy. Living in New York State, editor Jim Willis has long advocated for shale drilling. Fracking in NY was the reason Jim started this blog/news site! MDN began in 2009 when shale drilling in NY seemed about to take off. And then, a series of unfortunate events led to the profoundly corrupt Andrew Cuomo becoming governor, seizing power in the Empire State. Cuomo not only temporarily blocked fracking in NY, he ultimately signed a bill into law permanently banning.
  • 3 Key Factors Will Decrease Natural Gas Prices This Winter. Natural gas prices in North America hit record highs in 2022. In fact, prices quadrupled from what they were before the onset of the pandemic in March 2020. Winter is the time of year when we use the most natural gas–both for heating and to power electric generation. The question arises, what will prices do this winter with an increase in demand? A McKinsey & Company analyst answers that question. He says three key factors could *decrease* natural gas prices in North America in the short term (i.e., this winter). What are those three factors?
