This special event was sponsored by the New York City Audubon focusing on a film that they have produced about the Jamaica Bay. Several of our employees were in attendance and interacted with United States Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) who was the keynote speaker during the event.
This organization has been a great partner for Williams as we develop our Rockaway Lateral pipeline project. The understand the need for new infrastructure and support our efforts to maintain the integrity of the Bay.
Williams and our employees in the Northeast help make this record-breaking production in the Marcellus a reality. Building safe and reliable infrastructure that moves this growing energy source from the wellhead to growing markets is what we do. We make energy happen.
The report also suggests that a large portion of shale gas production growth is taking place in the Marcellus Shale. There, dry natural gas production has considerably increased in the past three years, from an average of 4.8 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) in 2011 to an average of 14.6 Bcf/d in 2014.
