“This is an ill-advised decision that denies New Yorkers the opportunity to take advantage of the many environmental and economic benefits that natural gas offers. This has always been a political, rather than a public health decision. Natural gas provides an engine for the economy of New York, which is the nation’s fifth largest natural gas user, and the state is forgoing the advantages its neighbors enjoy from natural gas production. The decision to prohibit hydraulic fracturing is based on data that does not justify the Cuomo administration’s conclusions. Natural gas has been responsibly produced in communities across the country and we are proud of our industry’s safety record.”
Representing North America’s leading independent natural gas exploration and production companies, America's Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA) works with industry, government and customer stakeholders to promote increased demand for and continued availability of our nation’s abundant natural gas resource for a cleaner and more secure energy future.
