Chesapeake sold its Arkansas holdings to BHP/Billiton which is an Australian company. BHP wasn’t in the gas business before that. They had no personnel or equipment for the job of producing it.
So what happened was they just changed the signage on the pickup trucks and the leases. Its all the same personnel doing the same half assed jobs and cutting the same corners.
Lawyers for Ore. attorney general ask federal regulators to revoke permits for LNG plant:
“Exportation of domestic natural gas will reduce the supply available to U.S. residential and industrial consumers, likely to result in increasing the domestic price of natural gas, which will have a consequent adverse impact on the regional economy,” said the filing by Janet Prewitt, senior assistant attorney general, on behalf of state Attorney General John Kroger.
This is great news. Oregon has been fighting a pipeline to carry the gas to the LNG terminal. Fight on Oregon!
What a terrible idea this export of NG. We pay the pollution penality and suffer. We can’t use our residences for normal enjoyment of the property. The only way to fix this asshole idea is to install a great big ‘ole timy disensentive EXPORT TAX. Tax the gassholes until they squeel like a pig passing a peach seed and then back off one click!
All the while putting the taxes towards the National Debt.
