Can Communities Regulate Gas Well Locations?

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has agreed to render an opinion as to whether local communities have any right to regulate where gas wells and their associated facilities may be located.

The communities of Oakmont and Salem had attempted to stop drilling in certain locations, but, their lawsuit failed in both the County Court and the Commonwealth Court on Appeal.

Their appeal to the PA Supreme Court will decide if the PA Oil and Gas Law which was enacted in 1986 supercedes all local laws.
