The Daily Frack - Feb. 20

We know the drill As a federal judge determines how many billions BP should pay for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the Obama administration is pushing a troubling plan to allow drilling in the Atlantic Ocean off the East Coast from Virginia to Georgia.  Environmentalists say President Obama is suffering from “oil spill amnesia,” and the oil companies no doubt hope the American public is suffering a memory lapse, too. Obama withdrew an offshore drilling plan in 2010, shortly after BP’s oil rig exploded, killing 11 people and spewing 200 million gallons of crude into the Gulf of Mexico over 87 days. Much of the mess remains: Florida State University oceanographers estimate 10 million gallons of oil is still stuck to the seafloor. The disaster also inflicted economic pain in […]

How to Get Fracked Gas to China via Upstate New York

Pipe fracked gas to LNG export terminals, then to a new Chinese tanker canal through Nicaragua. You knew that the Chinese were building a tanker canal through Nicaragua, right ? It’s not just for tar sand oil from Canada. No sir. That’s the plan behind the Constitution Pipeline – the Keystone XL of Shale Gas LNG.  And guess who’s in the way. Here is the scoop from Ted Glick for EcoWatch “A popular movement is building against the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), for its outrageous rubber-stamping of permits for expansion of the gas industry. Robert Kennedy’s powerful indictment of FERC on national television last week was the latest manifestation of this hopeful, much-needed development. Kennedy was speaking about the Constitution pipeline, one of about eight interstate pipelines originating in or […]

It began with the simple question of “WHO IS….” Too often players are overlooked or simply dismissed as industry shills, yet these players are actively working hand in hand with politicians to write regulations, create laws and exemptions to benefit themselves. They craft and control the message you see often repeated in advertising and echoed through their connections. The Marcellus Shale Players contains nearly 10,000 entries (and growing) of the who’s who in shale and now it’s available to the public through Shale Justice.

West Virginia Train Derails: Fires, Oil Tanker Into River MOUNT CARBON , W.Va. — Fires burned for nearly nine hours after a train carrying more than 100 tankers of crude oil derailed in a snowstorm in West Virginia , plunging at least one tanker into a river while sending a fireball into the sky, authorities and residents say. Officials evacuated hundreds of families and shut down two water treatment plants threatened by oil seeping into the river following the Monday afternoon derailment. A state public safety division spokesman, Lawrence Messina, said fire crews decided to let the tanks burn themselves out. Federal railroad and hazardous materials officials are probing the accident, in which part of the train formation hit a house. The office of Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, which has […]

As N.J. pipeline network grows, safety is concern With more than 1,500 miles of aging natural gas pipelines already crisscrossing New Jersey , and five new projects to expand the network’s capacity being proposed or recently completed, federal authorities are raising concerns about the safety of such pipelines nationwide, especially in densely populated areas. A recent study by the National Transportation Safety Board — which focused on pipelines in high population areas — pointed out weaknesses in inspection plans and federal oversight of the pipelines. A particular concern is the risk of accidents due to corrosion in lines installed before 1970. The report was spurred by major pipeline accidents in Florida , California and West Virginia in the past five years. The explosions and fires killed eight, injured more than […]

  95 Scientists and Economists Call on Obama to Veto Keystone XL Pipeline Bill 95 scientists and economists released a letter urging President Obama and Secretary Kerry to reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, calling it a “step in the wrong direction” if the Obama administration is serious about addressing climate change. The letter draws upon comments President Obama made at Georgetown University in June 2013 when he stated, “allowing the Keystone pipeline to be built requires a finding that doing so would be in our nation’s interest. And our national interest will be served only if this project does not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution.” As the scientists and economists confirm in the letter, “…now more than ever, evidence shows that Keystone XL will significantly contribute to […]

How Frackers Lose Their Leases

By failing to frack them.  In order to keep an oil and gas lease in place (unless you are Cabot or Chesapeake and scam the landowners), you have to drill and the lease has to produce. And you have to keep drilling to maintain production – even after the wells become uneconomic – which is why such clauses are known as Held By Production, or HBP requirements. Catch is, the fracker find another fool to finance the wells. And after they have maxed on on junk bonds and “story stocks” on Wall Street, that can be tough. Another fool may be born each minute, but it takes millions of fools to frack a shale well. And there are only so many fracking fools to go around.   The frackers are obligated to drill […]
