UDRBC Formed to Fight for Upper Delaware Citizens

A new landowner group, UDRBC, has been formed to fight back against the DRBC and anyone else threatening the rights of Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens.

With the DRBC continuing to encroach upon property owner rights in the Delaware River Watershed, the need for a coalition spanning multiple counties and multiple states has never been greater. Members of the Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens (UDRBC) believe this; for the people who actually live and work…

The Down River Balderdash Club (DRBC) That Uses Gas

The cowardly DRBC that wants us to imagine it’s fearful of what natural gas production might mean for the river basin is full of balderdash – it uses gas!

The resolution to consider some vague sort of ban on fracking in the Delaware River basin wasn’t the only one adopted by the DRBC on September 13, 2017. There was another and this one makes a mockery of everything proclaimed in the one everyone’s writing about.

The now infamous …

NG Advantage Meeting in Fenton Goes Well; Were Minds Changed?

Emissions Are Down as New Technologies Increase Production

Air quality and greenhouse gas emissions have improved to 30-year lows. This is due to the increased use of natural gas and industry investment. 

There is no doubt about it, the air we are breathing is cleaner than it has been in nearly thirty years. This is not because of government forced regulation or from the onslaught of environmentalists’ pressures, but rather, it is largely in thanks to natural gas.

The United States has been a leader in…

royaltys

How is it the pa. gov are not taking care of this injustice and theft of royalties. Every one knows we are being ROBBED. Woodie Guthrie once said " SOME PEOPLE WILL ROB YOU WITH A SIX GUN, OTHERS WITH A FOUNTAIN PEN " This is so true the robbers. The gas and oil companies and now our leaders in government are not serving the citizens. They apparently know what's right and what is wrong, but are they being persuaded from outside forces. I believe they are. We can all guess what's the driving…

Battle for the Pipelines – The Agency Strikes Back

New York can simply not grow without access to natural gas, nor can most areas. The FERC decision addresses this economic reality while others only posture.

With just three months to go, the movie industry is looking at one of its worst years in recent memory. Earlier this month, Jennifer Lawrence’s new release Mother was such a flop that famed critic Rex Reed called it the “worst movie of the century.”  It appears that Hollywood is missing 2017’s…

The Deceitful Foundation of the DAPL Protests

Grounded in Fact helps to dispel the deceitful actions which took place at DAPL protests and lies from anti-pipeline activists that led to a lawsuit.

The five claims that make up the foundation of last year’s Dakota Access pipeline protests are falsehoods. Not “that’s just their opinion” falsehoods; these claims are patently and demonstrably untrue. Yet they continue to thrive in the fertilizer-rich environment of the Internet.

The five fictitious pillars…

Craig Stevens Supports Pipelines? Who Knew?

Craig Stevens has been everywhere opposing gas drilling, fracking and pipelines, including the Constitution Pipeline, but when it’s his own property…

One of Craig Stevens’ most frequent remarks during his even more frequent appearances where he performs his fractivist schtick is “you probably know my name.” His notoriety is clearly a source of some pride but, let’s face it, it’s well-earned in a sense. Most of us involved in promoting natural gas development do know…

FERC Slams New York DEC

A recent Millennium Pipeline decision slamming New York DEC was a needed move by FERC to protect its Federal jurisdiction but Congress needs to act as well.

States participating in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, are seeing their already high energy bills, go higher; far different from its intention.

Australia’s Demand for Renewables Drives Energy Prices Way Up

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target is producing more renewable energy; however, their energy prices are now the most expensive in the world. 

Since the dawn of the shale natural gas revolution, we have watched how quickly energy prices have fallen, how our carbon emissions have dropped, and how our own economy has grown. It has been amazing to watch new technological breakthroughs increase production and reduce operational costs.

Natural gas has, to put…

DRBC Torment Won’t Stop Me from Defending the People of the Delaware

Bill Shaughnessy fights for what he learned from his Dad and Mom and the people of the Delaware against the DRBC tyrants and their land use power grab.

Its been seven years almost to the day that I was sitting with my dying father, his family at his side, going over the lease we had just received from Hess through an alliance of neighbors known as NWPOA (Northern Wayne Property Owners Alliance). It was not exactly a time of celebration, but my father took solace…

The Cuomo Administration Interstate Pipeline Trilogy

The Cuomo administration has made it virtually impossible for any interstate pipeline to get approval; at least for it has for the three who have tried.

The Cuomo administration, through the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (the “Department”), has dealt a severe blow to industry’s efforts to bolster the natural gas interstate infrastructure passing through New York…
