Natural Gas Drilling in NEPA

Posted By Rogan Law || 30-Oct-2010

The ongoing debate about natural gas drilling in NEPA continues to make headlines throughout our region. When creating natural gas wells, a process called fracturing is used. In this process, hundreds of chemicals are combined with thousands of gallons of water and injected into the earth. The Times Leader reports that HBO's Gasland creator pushes for a one-year moratorium on Pennsylvania drilling.

Residents and landowners in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, the Poconos, Wayne County and surrounding areasResidents may have serious cause for concern about the effects this natural gas drilling will have on them and their families. Drilling-related accidents resulting in natural gas spills have already occurred, and there is also the added concern of whether drilling is spreading toxic chemicals.
