The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, 1510 AM, 1600 AM, 104.1 FM and Sundays on YesFM, talked about Nord Stream II, climate policies, high gas prices and much more last week.
The Shale Gas News has grown again to the Williamsport area on stations WEJS 1600 AM & 104.1 FM. The Shale Gas News is now broadcasting in Bradford, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lebanon, Luzerne, Lycoming, Pike, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Tioga and Wayne Counties, as well as in greater central PA and now the Williamsport area. The Shale Gas News is aired on Saturday or Sunday depending on the station.
Every Saturday Rusty Fender, Matt Henderson and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things shale gas. This week, as a guest, we had Bradford County Commissioner Doug McLinko. We also played an interview from Representative Mark Longietti at the two-day hearing at Lackawanna College of the Democratic House Policy committee.

The Shale Gas News, typically, is broadcast live. On the October 23th show (click above), we covered the following new natural gas territory (see news excerpts below):
- Two-day hearing discusses how colleges fill in-demand careers. The labor market in northeast Pennsylvania needs workers, and a two-day hearing in Tunkhannock and Scranton focused on how the region prepares students for success. “Students coming out of their high school years need opportunities like those provided here,” said state Rep. Bridget Kosierowski, D-Lackawanna.
- Democrats coalesce around new climate policy, leaving room for gas on power grid. WASHINGTON – With efforts to rapidly shift the nation’s power sector from fossil fuels faltering, Democrats are moving ahead on a climate policy that makes greater room for natural gas and possibly even coal on the U.S. power grid.
- Biden talks clean electricity plan, high gas prices. President Biden said yesterday he expects gas prices to remain high until next year and there’s not much he can do about it. At a CNN Town Hall, Biden insisted the cost of gasoline is largely beyond his control, noting much of the price is controlled by OPEC, which had dropped production during the pandemic. “My guess is, we’ll start to see gas prices come down as we go into next year, 2022,” Biden said. “I don’t see anything that’s going to happen in the meantime that’s going to significantly reduce gas prices.”
- Oil refining renaissance under threat from natural gas crisis. Surging prices for natural gas are threatening to eat up the profit some oil refiners are making on their fuels, forcing them to cut processing rates and even altering normal crude-buying patterns. Natural gas — specifically methane — is central to making the hydrogen that oil refineries rely on for diesel-producing machines called hydrocrackers and hydrotreaters, which help to eliminate sulfur.
- Oil Fluctuates Near $83 With U.S. Supplies Under the Microscope. Oil swung between gains and losses as traders weigh the ongoing impact of a global energy crunch and dwindling inventories at a key U.S. storage hub. Front-month futures in New York traded below $83, paring an earlier drop as the dollar cooled. While headline prices have been volatile over the last two sessions, the market’s structure has surged with the energy crisis leading to crude stockpiles at the key U.S. storage of Cushing rapidly draining to near critically low levels.
- Biden talks up climate deal with Manchin. President Biden said last night that there’s a deal to be had on climate with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who opposes key pieces of the party’s reconciliation package. At the same time Democrats are increasingly worried that they’ll arrive for United Nations climate talks next month with little to show for months of effort.
- Canada oil producers grapple with Trudeau’s demand for faster emissions cuts. Canada’s oil producers face new pressure from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to reduce emissions in just three years, a sudden acceleration of their plans that at least one major company said looks unrealistic. Suncor Energy (SU.TO), the second-largest Canadian crude producer, says it remains focused on cutting emissions by 2030, not 2025 as the Canadian government will require.
