Just curious...

     I am in Liberty township and a few months ago got an offer to buy my royalties for 1500 to 1800 per acre, but they would do a more in-depth look if I was serious which "mite change the numbers" slightly....even tho I am not drilled or receiving any royalties ..talked to a landsman rite b4 I contacted them and he advised caution as there will be "significant" activity in my area in the "near future"....how about it, anybody else get an offer or hear anything or see any activity here in Tioga Co. ?

I guess that I never gave a thought to the problems of transporting the gas to where it is needed or wanted Ann.  And like everything else there are problems of pipelines deteriorating and sometimes failing completely too.  Rerouting needed gas or other petroleum products can be a real problem.  And there aways is a period of "catching up" when these failures occur!

Rainstorms, floods, hurricanes can easily disrupt, even for weeks, delivery of needed petroleum products.

One of the things I've wondered about is whether they have considered the impact of acid rain (here) on the pipelines.  Do they lime the soil when they backfill? 

special paint coating and they use suction pipe apparatus on excavator so NO scratches, wrapped fiber next coat, bedded on foam bridges and fine crushed dirt all sides. anode protection also. acid rain is no more due to coal plant regulations on sulphur and continued retirement of plants. used to be farmers got "free" sulphur now it actually gets applied as micronutrient. pipelines have come a long way since the first tarred "woodies". NO WORRIES.

While cleaning up (or closing) coal-powered generating plants has helped improve the rain pH, it doesn't reverse the loss of soil buffering capacity. As for pipe coating and other protective treatment, if it was fool-proof, Spectras's Texas Eastern pipe wouldn't have exploded. As for riding the soil of potentially damaging stones, any Tioga Cty native would know that is impossibble. The earth urps up a new crop with each Sping Thaw.

the alternative for "man" not doing the best "we" can to supply energy is much worse than any risks or negative impacts. anarchy and chaos will quickly fill the void. check out the 1968 east coast blackout NYC events. i suppose euthanization at birth would solve all problems since we all will die sometime from some cause.

What 1968 NYC blackout?

A common question after the 1968 incident was "Where were you when the lights went out?" 

Many folks were trapped in subway trains and elevators in the city. Traffic lights went out. Not many folks had auxillary power units back then. If I recall correctly, Electric power was switched from one area to another periodically  to avoid larger and more damage to  other suppliers. 

My wife and I just piled  the wood burning furnace and kitchen cookstove full of wood and went to bed early. Other folks were not so fortunate!

Proper Birth control  would certainly help solve many of the problems humans are dealing with today!

Bill:  I do recall a NYC blackout, but found 1965 when I Googled.

as the fog cleared this morning it revealed a field full of white trucks, a small excavator digging probes and several contractors including an Eclipse employee. prelim. work for E&S permit to construct drill pad. had good conversation regarding their plans. all systems go.

DOE Sec. Perry Hints Trump May Overrule States Blocking Pipelines

Is there a white knight that can ride in and save the day for pipelines being blocked by radicals like Andrew Cuomo in New York State? There may just be! Last week while testifying at a House Committee on Science, Space and Technology hearing, Dept. of Energy Secretary Rick Perry said that he believes states do not have the right to block interstate pipelines. Perry stopped short of saying that President Trump would consider issuing an Executive Order to approve projects like the Constitution Pipeline and Northern Access Pipeline projects in New York. But he did appear to hint at the possibility…

Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Rick Perry told a House panel last week that he considers oil and natural gas pipelines to be an integral part of the nation’s energy security, and hinted that the Trump administration could cite national security as a means to thwart states trying to block such pipelines from being built.

During a House Committee on Science, Space and Technology hearing last Wednesday, Perry said he would be “hard pressed” to not say that states play an important role in the development of energy infrastructure. But he questioned whether states ultimately have the right to block interstate pipelines.

Blocking pipelines has “a national security implication or an economic implication on individuals,” Perry said. “That’s a whole nother issue, [but] the fight there will be the states’ sovereign ability to make a decision versus the national security of this country.”*
