My last blog concerning natural gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale formation focused on what has been happening recently in Wayne County, but Monroe County is also beginning to have conversations about the potential benefits and drawbacks of extracting gas from this huge natural formation.
A few days ago, the Pocono Record reported that the League of Women Voters of Monroe County will host a free, public forum at the Hughes Eastern Monroe Library Community Room at 10 AM on March 6th to discuss the perspectives of speakers representing a variety of backgrounds.
The League of Women Voters is in the midst of a one-year study to figure out the effect that drilling will have on Pennsylvania's natural resources, infrastructure, tourism and economy. It stresses that anyone living on the formation or in the counties with pipelines could be impacted.
As decisions are made and projects move forward, you may be in a position that requires you to make a decision about natural gas leasing. If you are, then please do the smart thing and consult a Monroe County Marecellus Shale attorney. We can help you understand and negotiate the details of the lease agreements you are being offered and determine the possible positive and negative effects they can have on you, your family and your community.
