Rusty Fender, co-host of Shale Gas News with Bill desRosiers, interviews desRosiers and George Stark to talk natural gas in Northeast Pennsylvania.
George Stark, Cabot’s director of external affairs, and Bill desRosiers, manager of external affairs, were featured on an episode of “Electric City TV Live! on the Comcast Network with Rusty Fender” to talk about the benefits that the natural gas industry has brought to northeastern Pennsylvania over the last 10 years.
From community and workforce development to providing a strong base for other industries to grow, like agriculture and education, natural gas plays a large and undeniable role in all areas of life and business. These benefits are especially prevalent in NEPA, where Cabot’s operations are located.

Editor’s Note: The benefits of natural gas to Northeast Pennsylvania are huge, as these three gentlemen — all friends of mine — make very clear in this fun interview. It’s more than fun, though. It’s serious business, too.
Bradford, Lycoming and Susquehanna Counties, for example, have rebounded economically in ways no one thought possible a little over a decade ago. Employment and wages have gone up. Young people are finding meaningful and rewarding employment in a growing industry. Colleges are expanding their offerings. Natural gas service is being extended to new communities. Businesses are being attracted. Housing and hospital projects have happened that simply wouldn’t have without gas. New money has been invested in farms.
It’s all quite remarkable and it’s all happened as a result of the shale revolution in our backyard.
