I have blogged several times recently about
Marcellus Shale drilling projects being planned and implemented throughout our region.
Most recently, I wrote about Wayne County; just today, looking through the
River Reporter, I found an article that shows just how divided local communities can
be over the issue of resource extraction.
The article detailed the discussion at the first public meeting of the
Wayne County Oil and Gas Task Force (WCOGTF), the latest set of letters
in an alphabet soup of competing interests. One issue the task force raised
that I hadn't heard discussed in the press before was the rights of
nearby non-leaseholders. Certainly, the drilling will impact everyone
in the region. Do those whose land is not of interest to the development
companies have any say in whether drilling should or should not move ahead
on adjoining land?
If you live in Wayne County and if you want to get a better idea of what
rights you have, then you should
contact a Wayne County Marcellus Shale attorney.
