WCOGTF Meeting Offers Glimpse into Marcellus Shale Contentions

Posted By Patrick M. Rogan || 20-May-2010

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.
