The Pennsylvania Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee held a hearing on the subject of Foreign Influence on natural gas development.
Yesterday, I was honored to be asked to testify at a hearing conducted by the Pennsylvania Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee on the subject of Foreign Influence on Natural Gas Development in Pennsylvania. Three of us testified, including Tom Murphy, the Director of the Penn State Marcellus Center for Outreach and Research, Kevin Mooney, reporter with the Daily Signal and me. Tom and Kevin both filled their excellent testimony with facts galore. You can see the video and read all our testimony here. I have also embedded the video below along with my testimony, which begins at about 49:00.
My name is Thomas J. Shepstone and I’m a planning and research consultant from Northeast Pennsylvania. I have over 40 years of experience working with communities throughout the Commonwealth. I also represent numerous private clients, including some in the natural gas industry and I publish a blog advocating for natural gas development in our region. Finally, I’m a landowner with a natural gas lease that has been in limbo for nearly a decade due to DRBC/SRBC double standards.
