Natural Gas Subcommittee Issues Interim Report

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

On August 11,  the Natural Gas Subcommittee issued its 90-day interim report of “Improving the Safety & Environmental Performance of Hydraulic Fracturing.”  The Subcommittee’s 180-day final report is expected on November 18, 2011. There is still time to comment.

I have not read the report yet. If there is interest, I may do so and post my analysis here. Anybody is welcome to provide their opinions and analyses on this blog either before or after I do so. I stand ready to assist clients file formal comments with DOE or understand the economic and policy implications of this report.


Happy 150th…

To the McClintock No. 1 oil well, still producing after all these years. More details here: well.html?cmpid=EnlDailyPetroAugust182011.   I have visited this site as well as other historically interesting sites in the PA rock oil region, and found them to be fascinating if you are interested in such history.
