state-grants-available-for-natural.html I recall this reporter doing a story on Aubrey McLendon’s call for the fruition of his dream, the holy grail, …to get all vehicles on natural gas. Then Arlington starts trying to convert the garbage trucks to run on the stuff…good little doggies they are. The storage needs for the compressed gas tanks are a problem for little cars. And for our proposed new garbage trucks, I heard the “ummph” just isn’t there power wise to get her done.
The UN knowns of extracting UN natural gas from UN conventional shale with an
UN proven safe fracking method is UN economical at today’s low NG prices along with
UN certain amounts of “extractable” gas quantities while being
UN healthy for NIMBY’s (or schools, employees..breathers) and
UN environmentally sound for those that cherish clean water and have an aversion to “acceptable risk” to our water (& food) supplies in our Texas drought status…how
UN american is all of this when at the same time, the industry is planning on exporting our gas to foreign countries so they can turn a profit!
After the gas glut is gone and we have already locked into foreign contracts and we find the production sux on these horizontal wells, will they deprive us of our own gas to fill foreign orders? It may just drive up our natural gas prices…but isn’t this what it is all about… jobs or corporate profits?
