Cawley: Gas Industry Created 72,000 New Jobs In PA In Last 18 Months

Lt. Governor Cawley Says Marcellus Shale Creating Jobs in Western PA

During a tour of Talisman Energy's regional headquarters, Lt. Governor Jim Cawley today pointed to how the Marcellus Shale natural gas production industry is creating jobs, even in communities where drilling is not taking place.

"Natural gas is already providing thousands of jobs for Pennsylvania. You can see it right here in suburban Pittsburgh," Cawley said. "Producers may not be drilling here in Warrendale, but jobs are being created here and across the state."

Cawley said the natural gas industry and related businesses generated more than 72,000 new hires in Pennsylvania over the last 18 months alone. These are family-sustaining jobs; paying on average nearly $70,000.

Canadian-based Talisman invested $1 billion in Pennsylvania in 2010, including establishing its 50,000-square-foot American headquarters in Warrendale. The company employs more than 200 people, including geologists, landsmen, regulatory and legal experts, among others.

Talisman plans to invest more than $1 billion in PA again this year, including expanding their headquarters and employing another 50 people.

"To those who say Marcellus Shale is not benefiting Pennsylvania, I say come to Warrendale and see it for yourself," Cawley said.

Cawley heads the Governor's Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission, which has been working to develop policy recommendations for natural gas drilling in Pennsylvania. The commission's final meeting is July 15, and its final report is due to the Governor by July 22.

I'm glad our gov and lt. gov don't feel the need to be held back by facts when supporting the gas industry.

I am really disappointed by the Study Commission that Corbett put together. The important part of a study is to be objective, non-biased and balanced. It is so upsetting to me that this commissioner is a stacked deck that is pro-industry. This is very sad.

Drilling is my bread and butter.DRILL BABY DRILL. Now thats what you call Roughnecking.

For all those who are reaping benefits directly or indirectly from the drilling and pipeline industries ... hurrah!! This evening's national news broadcast that unemployment across our nation is rising and is now @ 9.2%. For some that means learning new job skills is a must. It can also mean time for a veggie garden and bartering of services. If it takes a food pantry or a gov't check to see folks through a rough patch ... fine. Just be sure this is a time of give and take, not take,take, take. Everyone knows how to do something, and obviously volunteering isn't a 4-letter word. Complain or DO, which will it be?

I heard there was 16 job openings in just one day after they rounded up the 16 Mexican illegals.

Question to ponder. If we are shipping so many of our jobs to Mexico why are they so eager to come to the United States?

Mexicans are more desirable than locals because they cost less to employ,house,are willing to follow rigs and don't talk to locals about spills and leaks.

Poster # 1 you are full of bull shit! I know of 20 to 30 people in and around the Austin area that have full time good paying jobs with benefits ! I see ads everyday from many different types of companys wanting to hire people! You just stick with your dumb-ass democrat attitude and us republicans that want good jobs will work and continue to pay your way!

Anonymous said...

4:36 where are you seeing all these ads ? I`m democrat and i`m damn sure you never paid a cent of my way. I know a couple of the guys you are talking about... They quit jobs to go to work with Halliburton and now they regret it.

Please don't confuse the unemployed with the unemployable. I know guys who if they lose a job make it a point to wait till their unemployment runs out before they accept another job. I know people who want to get paid but not if they have to learn anything to do it.

Out of the 9.2% unemployed I always wonder how many are hard working skilled people who are willing to retrain and actively trying to find work. An average of $70,000 for new employees should be enough to motivate people but it isn't. Stop blaming the politicians and take control of your own future.
