Maybe someone can set me straight on this. I recall the Utica and Attica gas retrieval process as being sold to the public as ultimately making us energy independent. My assumption was that this referred to gas utilized in vehicles. Was I wrong?
I look in the Oct. 15 issue of The Review, at the article titled "Informational meeting regarding natural gas industry held", and on Page 3A, toward the end of the story it says "Liquid natural gas, such as ethane, propane and butane, will be transported in the pipeline to refineries, where it will be converted into plastic products."
Is this what this is about?
No gas products for us? Will they be sold on the open market to China, and we're left with the plastic products? Will the production of all these plastic products mean the end of recycling and a dirtier earth?
My guess is "Yes."
Check out the Hilcorp and Bluegrass Pipeline websites. It seems to bear this out. Is this what we thought would happen?
