Natgas pipeline builders hail U.S. okay of blocked New York projectv

(Reuters) - Energy traders and natural gas pipeline companies on Friday hailed a U.S. federal regulator’s decision to overturn New York’s denial of a water permit for building the Millennium Pipeline in the state.

People in the industry expressed hope that the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission would be willing to override state decisions to block other pipelines, including Williams Cos Inc’s Constitution and National Fuel Gas Co’s Northern Access pipelines from Pennsylvania. These could also be approved if similar waivers are granted by FERC.

Editorial — Self-imposed blockage: Cuomo blames National Grid for a problem that he created
Posted: September 10th, 2019

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo appears to be at cross purposes with himself when it comes to natural gas. In an editorial published Aug. 31, the New York Post said he is putting more pressure on National Grid to sign up new customers in sections of Brooklyn, Long Island and Queens. The Post wrote that Mr. Cuomo has directed the Department of Public Service to “broaden its investigation” of Nation [ ... ]

Natural gas bags: Pols scream at the results of their own war on fossil fuels
Posted: August 30th, 2019

Do New York politicians want to phase out the use of fossil fuels — or not? On Friday, Assemblyman William Colton (D-B’klyn) blasted National Grid for turning away new Brooklyn natural gas service customers. Without a gas pipeline recently nixed by Team Cuomo, the company says, it won’t have enough gas to fill new orders. Blame Cuomo when the gas goes out

NY Governor Finally Asked About Natural Gas Shortage. Has No Answers
Posted: August 30th, 2019

Ever since May of this year, the utility company National Grid has had a moratorium on new natural gas customers in certain areas around New York City. The reason? They don’t have enough gas in the pipeline to serve more people. This is a problem that’s gone largely ignored in the media and you rarely hear any politicians talking about. However, one CBS New York reporter finally caught up [ ... ]

New York Residents Must Dump Oil & Gas Furnaces by 2050
Posted: August 30th, 2019

This is no joke. It’s not an “Onion” piece where we’re trying to fool you. In June the New York State legislature passed a horrific “energy” bill that was later signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo (see New York Pulls the Trigger, Commits Energy Suicide with New Law). The new law limits carbon dioxide emissions to zero (an impossibility) by 2050. Everyone is now waking up and saying,  [ ... ]

Powerful Reality: More Solar Power Means More Air Pollution

The United States is now the top oil and gas producer in the world. Our nation is more energy independent than ever before. At the same time, we continue to improve our air quality. But too many critically important pipelines are still being delayed for years or killed altogether. For President Trump, these delays and blockades are unacceptable.

It's been a long time between Bulletins but not much is happening on the surface in the Otsego County Gas Wars. Below the surface we'll watch for the newly formed Energy Committee to pick a consultant. If that person has an obvious bias, the County is in trouble.

Cuomo’s ‘renewable’ fiasco
Posted: June 3rd, 2019

Gov. Cuomo keeps raising his renewable-energy goals, but the reality is that New York is actually losing ground when it comes to how much of its power is generated by “clean” plants. The Empire Center’s Ken Girardin recently broke the news that the state last year generated slightly less electricity from renewable sources (wind, hydroelectric and solar) than it did in 2017. Maybe that’s  [ ... ]
