Local Governments Explore Marcellus Drilling

Local government officials learn effects of drilling in Marcellus shale

SMETHPORT — Local government officials from McKean, Cameron, Potter, Elk and Warren counties attended a video-teleconference Thursday at the McKean County 911 Center about how drilling in the Marcellus shale will affect local governments.

The conference was titled “Natural Gas Exploration and Drilling: The Local Government Role in the Future Impacts of Underground Opportunities.”

Jim Clark, extension educator, and Don Tanner, county extension director, were facilitators for the session, one of ten sites statewide. Speakers spokesmen from state agencies, oil and gas industry and an attorney. Following each presenter, the audiences had opportunities to ask questions. More....

When you read this articile you will see this quote:

"an audience member from another site asked if the townships have the power to tax oil and gas production.

The answer was “No . . . that authority rests with the state.”

I hope after Potter County saves the world with wind turbines and electric and natural gas wells and gas, somebody will save Potter County. I know this will be looked at as negative, but this is a fact, enjoy Potter County while while you can, because, as you can see, it is all going to change in the very near future. For the majority of the people here, the change will not be for the better.

If change means losing everything, I am happy for things to stay the same. We live in a beautiful area. There is no need to fix that. If the grass appears greener someother place, go there.
Ed sees what he have here, and it is worth fighting for.

Some company drilled all night on land owned by someone who does not
own the mineral rights...the land
owner has no rights whatsoever
nor was respect shown them in the company's choice to drill all night and it kept all of their neighbors awake..

Regulations are what is required
and thoughtfulness...drilling
need not deprive so many of their
rights...these folks bought their land and yet have no rights whatsoever.

THIS IS ANOTHER HORROR SHOW IN POTTER COUNTY WITH THE COUNTY
RECEIVING NO REVENUES FOR ROADS
OR ANYTHING..STRESS TO OUR ROADWAYS...SOMETHING IS HORRIBLY
WRONG..

"who does not

When you purchase/sell land your attorney should point out what is in the deed IF you do not know what to look for as far as mineral rights. This is nothing NEW, land has been purchased/sold for years this way either you sell/buy with our without the mineral rights.


For Your Information:

"RECEIVING NO REVENUES FOR ROADS
OR ANYTHING..STRESS TO OUR ROADWAYS"

IF they are running on 10 ton posted roads they ARE paying the state for permits to bond and run on these roads. AND if there is wear and tear the state repairs the roadway and the user gets a bill from Clearfield.

That is IF it is not a township road...If it is a township road the money is up front for a permit and to be held until usage is complete. Also you usually BUY gravel, stone, and or lime stone for the use of the roads for the township's future use to receive your money back.

Maybe you should start questioning the commonwealth just what they are doing with all the money they charge to a person that owns a truck! Fuel Tax, Heavy Highway Use Tax, Road Tax, Registration fees, License fees and these are just a few of the charges. Not to mention the trucks that come through our state, we get revenue from them as well via apportion reg. fees, IFTA, single state registration...and the list goes on. Maybe they would not be looking into tolling I-80 if the money was going into to road repairs for all of the above as it is being charged.
