Letter to the editor: Fracked gas includes propane as well as methane

The editorial in the Dec. 31 edition of the Independent, “Bristol’s rocky road with VG,” makes an important point about “the growing recognition of the environmental harm caused by the fracking process to extract natural gas and its diminished value as a fuel with a lower carbon footprint.”
For purposes of future conversations about natural gas pipelines in the state of Vermont, it should be noted that the propane (a natural gas liquid) produced and marketed in the U.S. comes from the same fracked wells as methane (natural gas).
