Today's Links: "Promised Land" Generating Controversy, Oil Prices Could Deal Another Blow to Drillers, Shale Focus of Energy Conference, and Much More

New York Post:  "FrackNation" producer reveals plot twist of Matt Damon's anti-fracking film, "Promised Land"

Knapp Acquisitions & Production PA Shale Gas Blog:  Residents of location where "Promised Land" was filmed angry about misrepresentation of the project (This one doesn't ring true - did these people really think that this movie wasn't going to cast gas development in a negative light?)

Knapp Acquisitions & Production PA Shale Gas Blog:  The Sautner family flees Dimock with settlement money from Cabot and buys property with gas lease in New York  (If all of this is true, it undeniably adds validation to the feelings many had that this family was simply taking advantage of what they saw as an opportunity to parlay hysteria into 15 minutes of fame and a big check from the gas company)

Energy in Depth:  Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District has plenty of water to spare for drilling  (What else is Energy in Depth going to say?)  Two thirds of fracking fluid disclosures keep some information protected as trade secrets  (From a PR perspective, this sure seems like a stupid thing for these companies to do - unless there really is something for them to hide from the public - and their arguments in support of keeping these things a trade secret are far too flimsy to shield them from further criticism)
