Columbia Gas and Hydraulic Fracturing

Columbia Gas of Maryland and our parent company, NiSource, are not engaged in natural gas production. We do support environmentally responsible development of domestic natural gas supplies as a critical element in a clean and sustainable U.S. energy strategy.

Benefits of Shale Gas for our Customers

Shale gas has already impacted customer bills in the form of lower, more stable prices. We are excited to have such a sustainable source of natural gas near our service territory. We believe that such an abundant supply will contribute greatly to price stability.

As the industry develops, we will continue to advocate the direct use of natural gas. The abundant supply and a strong infrastructure are crucial to achieve greenhouse reduction goals.
