Potter County Gas Task Force To Meet Tuesday

Organizational Meeting Tuesday
More than a dozen volunteers representing a broad range of interests will gather on Tuesday night at the F. W. Gunzburger County Office Building for an organizational meeting of the Potter County Natural Gas Task Force. The group will be discussing how to be effective in addressing three areas of concern in connection with the expected rush on natural gas resources:

  • economic development/jobs
  • protection of water quality/environmental conservation
  • public education

Commissioners Doug Morley, Susan Kefover and Paul Heimel have reached out to the community to develop a task force that includes representatives with divergent interests. Among those agreeing to serve are: Carl Roberts, geologist; Dr. Peter Ryan, representing Trout Unlimited; Judy Bear, a water drilling specialist; Bruce Sampson, land acquisition manager and business developer with Pennsylvania General Energy Company; Eric Beaver, district conservationist with the Potter County Conservation District; Dick Ford, retired oil and gas inspector for the Pa. Dept. of Environmental Protection, and others.

The task force will also call upon adjunct members with expertise in taxation, public policy issues, gas transportation, economic development, public safety and other subject areas to assist.

Tuesday’s meeting, scheduled for 7 pm in the commissioners’ conference room, is open to the public. The Natural Gas Task Force will be meeting on the second Tuesday of each month. Additional details will be announced. Potter County Today

Umm how about an actual laboror/oil and gas man whether it be an employee or an owner operator of a local company?? Might be the only one in the group that actually knows what it takes to get oil and gas outta the ground. Not a person from the government or a special anti-development group or someone who acquires leases. Just a suggestion.

"or someone who acquires leases"

If you are talking about Bruce Sampson, you obviously don't know the man. He is very well schooled in all aspects of oil and gas production. He also understands the financial benefits that gas and oil will have for our area. You would be hard pressed to find a better person to represent the landowners and the gas industry.

Good group so far. Have worked with several of them. Dick Ford knows more about getting Oil and Gas out of the ground than I will ever know. Straight shooter with common sense.
