Pa. plant 'born of Marcellus' gets final permits

Pennsylvania officials are touting what they say is the state's first new power plant being built to capitalize on cheap gas from the Marcellus Shale. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection yesterday approved the air plan submitted by Moxie Liberty LLC, an independent power developer based in Vienna, Va. The approval is the last one Moxie needs to begin construction of the plant.

2. GULF SPILL

Leaked crude resurfaces in the Gulf, 2 years after disaster

HOUSTON -- Leaked crude oil from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig explosion and oil spill has resurfaced in the Gulf of Mexico, the federal government reported yesterday. In a notice posted on its RestoreTheGulf.gov website late last night, the Federal On-Scene Coordinator for the Macondo well spill cleanup operation said an oil sheen discovered on the water surface near the spill site matches oil that gushed out of that ill-fated offshore well, in what became the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history.
