This link: http://www.rigzone.com/NEWS/article.asp?a_id=82049 and http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142 ... 71268.html
has great info and maybe the DEC and greenies should read this before they continue to "debate" (but we truly know it means stalling) more uninformed hysteria.

"So far only one serious obstacle to development of shale resources across the U.S. has appeared -- water. The most visible concern is the fear in some quarters that hydrocarbons or chemicals used in fraccing might flow into aquifers that supply drinking water. However, in most instances, the gas-bearing and water-bearing layers are widely separated by thousands of vertical feet, as well as by rock, with the gas being much deeper.

Therefore, the hydraulic fracturing of gas shales is unlikely to contaminate drinking water. The risks of contamination from surface handling of wastes, common to all industrial processes, requires continued care. While fraccing uses a good deal of water, it is actually less water-intensive than many other types of energy production."

Is there really need for further questioning and commentary?

How big is this movement? Imagine this,

"It transforms the debate over generating electricity. The U.S. electric power industry faces very big questions about fuel choice and what kind of new generating capacity to build. In the face of new climate regulations, the increased availability of gas will likely lead to more natural gas consumption in electric power because of gas's relatively lower CO2 emissions. Natural gas power plants can also be built more quickly than coal-fired plants."

And the country that does/has successful flights of natural gas fueled commercial airplanes in Qatar.

"The recent increase in estimated U.S. gas reserves by the Potential Gas Committee, representing both academic and industry experts, is in itself equivalent to more than half of the total proved reserves of Qatar, the new LNG powerhouse. With more drilling experience, U.S. estimates are likely to rise dramatically in the next few years. At current levels of demand, the U.S. has about 90 years of proven and potential supply.. "
but the commentary period is to be extended due to ludicrous concerns/hysteria? Ridiculous!

zechari, this should be read by every member... look at the future of nat'l gas in this country... the marcellus is the biggest, closest to the biggest consumer, the most cost effective, and we own a good percentage of it... got to love that!
