I am curious as to how much Yaw will benefit from this. Unbelievable what I am seeing in this area.

It is interesting that the author used words like "descended" and "innundated" to describe the natural gas experience. Not the words I would choose to describe a positive event. Also, gas has been extracted and sent somewhere. Why not here first, or simulataneously with exports?

Yaw has leased more than 100 acres of his own land to Anadarko Petroleum.

Anadarko is the same company planning to drill in the Loyalsock State Forest, the very place Yaw has been asked to help preserve and limit drilling for gas, the more they drill the more money Yaw makes.

Small world huh!

I am not surprised to see a pol benefiting financially from this. Why do you think the beltway runs where it does instead along the river as was originally intended? Confair and Fry owned the land. It happens all the time. This is another good argument for term limits.

As for why are we selling it across the world, it is simple. The producers sell it where they can make money. Natural gas is down here, but in demand elsewhere.

You mean...BESIDES providing jobs (to local-contractors/materials-vendors) that will make the gas available to more "local residents, motorists and businesses."????

I'm thinking the first-two paragraphs were an amateurish-attempt, by the author, to mimic the protestations of natural-gas-development "critics".

Such an effort might be lauded by the folks at The Murdoch Street Journal (or, it's "little-sister"; The NY Post), but it is quite confusing during a first-read.

Yeah...that (really) can't be avoided; bu$ine$$ being bu$ine$$.

I'm hoping we don't hear one MORE "pitch" (by those Texas refiners/exporters) about our "need" for ANOTHER Keystone-like pipeline (to their facilities)...you know, to bring-down "prices-at-the-pump".
