Quantum is unmatched in energy and environmental affairs in the Appalachian region.
Quantum has a long record of success working with energy producers, distributors and energy trade associations.
We assist energy companies with public affairs, help pipeline companies install new capacity, and help Americans understand the benefit of using American energy.
On the national level we have worked with clients on a range of energy and environmental issues. These include opposing Environmental Protection Agency rulemaking that would restrict American energy development and raise the cost of doing business on American energy production.
When the Pennsylvania Gas Association wanted to raise awareness about the need to replace Pennsylvania’s aging natural gas pipelines they came to Quantum Communications.
At the time, news headlines featuring ever-increasing energy prices and a sluggish economy dominated the media. We used this to our client’s benefit.
Replacing aging gas pipelines provides good paying jobs, and the recently passed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 had money for “shovel ready” projects like this. Furthermore, the Marcellus Shale natural gas formation was also at the media and public policy forefront, and more and more people were paying attention to natural gas.
Given the technical subject matter, Quantum produced a documentary highlighting natural gas in Pennsylvania. Quantum’s goal was to use the documentary as an educational tool to explain to policymakers it was time to replace the state’s aging infrastructure.
Within strict time constraints, Quantum wrote the script, traveled across Pennsylvania to film experts (including technical experts, labor leaders, and well-known Democrats and Republicans) , edited footage and handled all post-production, designed the artwork and produced the packaging and finally delivered the video to all Members and staff of the Pennsylvania House and Senate and the Governor as well as other decision makers.
The documentary premiered during a public hearing in April, 2009, where state legislators met to discuss options to pay for replacing nearly 13,000 miles of aging pipeline in the state. The film was also featured on the Energy Association of Pennsylvania’s website, shown at state infrastructure conferences and widely circulated among thought and opinion leaders.
