Our Energy Future and Natural Gas Development

Chief Oil & Gas is proud to be a part of providing a clean, domestic source of energy to power our energy future.

While our country is making many strides toward a future powered by renewable energy, we are still a long way from eliminating the use of fossil fuels.  Natural gas is an essential partner in the development of renewable energy, providing back-up power when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine.

Natural gas is also the only widely used energy alternative to make a substantial difference in reducing harmful emissions, burning 28 percent cleaner than petroleum and almost twice as clean as coal. 

As noted in a recent Washington Post editorial, there are many benefits to the development of natural gas from the Marcellus Shale when it is done in responsible manner:

“… America’s massive Marcellus Shale formation could provide a large, domestic source of energy with fewer harmful emissions and half of coal’s carbon output. Fuel switching could produce carbon savings that would give cleaner sources of energy more time to become affordable. It would also provide jobs.”
