Pennsylvania is One of the Top 3 Net Energy Suppliers in the U.S.

Posted 14 August: According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), Pennsylvania ranks 3rd in the nation among energy suppliers.  Not that long ago, Pennsylvania was a net importer of natural gas, but as natural gas production grew from 573 bcf in 2010 to 5,264 bcf in 2016 as a result of the development of the Marcellus and Utica shale plays Pennsylvania is now one of the top natural gas exporters. Pennsylvania also ranks in the top 5 for coal production. MORE

PCPG responds to irresponsible call for hydraulic fracturing moratorium

Posted 28 November:  PCPG's official response statement to the PA Medical Society's recent call for a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing in Pennsylvania is available for download.  The society’s 300-member House of Delegates unanimously approved a resolution at its annual meeting in October calling for the fracking moratorium, registry and research.

As stated previously in PCPG's 2014 Shale Gas Statement, oil and gas exploration and production, utilizing hydraulic fracturing, can and is done in an environmentally responsible manner and provides a great benefit to the Commonwealth.

We encourage PCPG members to download the response statement, write personal notes to your local state house and state senate members, and provide a copy of PCPG's official response.
