Texas keeping the Northeast warm this winter

Fuel Fix:
The nation’s largest natural gas pipeline system is funneling more gas than ever from Texas to help warm the Eastern Seaboard.

Oklahoma-based Williams said its crown jewel Transco interstate pipeline network is delivered record-setting natural gas volumes to meet demand driven by recent cold weather conditions. A new single-day delivery record was set on Jan. 8, as well as a new three-day record from Jan. 7-9.

The 10,200-mile Transco system stretches from the Texas Gulf Coast, where cheap and abundant Texas shale gas is collected, and piped through the Southeast and up the Eastern Seaboard all the way up to New York.

While the winter overall is proving milder than expected, much of the country, including Houston, dealt with sub-freezing temperatures throughout this past Jan. 7 weekend. The Transco system has completed recent expansions with more on the way.

People in the Northeast would be freezing in the dark if the anti-energy left had its way in blocking pipelines.  It is one of the least intelligent political movements in the country.  It is a shame that the media promotes their absurd demonstrations.  These people are OPEC's and Russia's useful idiots.
