David McCormick, Senate nominee, advocates for US energy independence

Exploring the Future of Energy Independence with U.S. Senate Candidate David McCormick

U.S. Senate candidate David McCormick recently visited a natural gas well just outside of Williamsport, emphasizing the importance of such wells in achieving energy independence for the state and the nation. During his tour of the Beech Resources natural gas pad, McCormick expressed admiration for the team’s work extracting gas from deep beneath the Marcellus Shale.

With an investment of $60-70 million and providing employment for subcontractors with high wages and benefits, the site represented a significant opportunity for economic growth. McCormick outlined his “Keystone Agenda” to make Pennsylvania and the U.S. energy superpowers, but highlighted challenges posed by transmission issues and regulations under the Biden administration.

Despite setbacks, the industry continues to thrive, supporting smaller companies and private contractors. McCormick engaged with workers on various aspects of the operation, from financial considerations to environmental concerns such as methane emissions and carbon reduction efforts.

The visit underscored McCormick’s commitment to promoting market-driven solutions and an all-encompassing energy agenda, contrasting his approach with what he sees as harmful government policies championed by his opponent, Senator Bob Casey. As the debate over energy policy continues, McCormick’s visit to the natural gas site highlighted the complexities and opportunities in the industry.
