Constitution Pipeline to bring natural gas service to towns along route

By Julia Reischel in Watershed Post  3/19/14 In an attempt to build support for their proposed 124-mile natural gas pipeline, Constitution Pipeline officials announced yesterday that they will work with local utilities to deliver natural gas to businesses and residences in four locations along the pipeline.The announcement is the latest twist in a fractious debate over natural gas within the town of Sidney, where an attempt to ban natural gas drilling was struck down by a state judge in January.The Constitution Pipeline plan also has been the object of fierce controversy. Opponents, many part of the group Stop the Pipeline, fear that the project will open the door for the gas drilling industry to expand in New York. Proponents, including many elected officials and business owners, hope that natural gas, currently a cheap fuel because of the US shale gas boom, will lower energy costs in the rural Catskills and create new jobs. The loudest voice on the business side is Amphenol Aerospace, which hopes to save over $1 million in annual fuel costs by switching to natural gas. If approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Constitution Pipeline project could break ground as early as January 2015, according to the project's manager, Matthew Swift.The pipeline is slated to run through Delaware and Schoharie counties in the northwestern Catskills. The FERC issued a draft environmental impact statement for the project on February 14, and is taking public comments on the document until April 7.

Gas buster

By The NY Post Editorial Board  3/9/2014For years, Gov. Cuomo has played Hamlet on the Hudson, using his environmental and health agencies as cover to delay making a decision on fracking.For years, too, we’ve taken him to task for it. We’ve pointed out the jobs fracking would bring to an economically strapped upstate. We’ve argued for the tax revenues that would flow to Albany. We’ve even noted that President Obama and other Democrats regard fracking as a blessing.Maybe this year’s race...

State consultant slams fracking

What is interesting to me is the subjectivity that is creeping into the discussion on Hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. It seems that it is easy to find individuals on both sides of the argument while actual historic facts and science do not present a high degree of subjectivity. Real well recorded history is fact, as are issues of science which are vetted professionally by peers and genuine experts in the field of study being reviewed. Here is an example of subjectivity; many...
