Drillers In Marcellus Miss Deadline For Production Reporting

Majority of Marcellus Well Operators Fail to Meet Production Reporting Deadline

DEP Sending Violators Notices Additional Enforcement Actions May Follow

HARRISBURG -- More than half of the natural gas drillers operating in the Marcellus Shale missed the deadline to report the production levels of their wells in violation of state law, according to the Department of Environmental Protection.

DEP Secretary John Hanger said today that 41 of the 74 oil and gas companies operating in the Marcellus Shale, or 55 percent, failed to submit reports on the past 12 months of production by the Aug. 15 deadline.

“When the General Assembly approved this law and the Governor signed it, they did so because they believed this requirement provided much-needed transparency into the industry’s operations,” said Hanger. “The fact that so many companies failed to meet the deadline for providing this information is troubling. We plan to follow-up with each non-compliant firm and pursue whatever enforcement action is necessary to get them to follow the law.”

The public can track a Marcellus operator’s compliance with Act 15 production reporting requirements online at http://www.dep.state.pa.us/dep/deputate/minres/oilgas/OGRE_production/Marcellus_Report_Submissions_8-26-10.xls. The site includes a complete list of operators that did not submit production reports by Aug. 15. The list will be updated on a weekly basis as production report submissions are made. The list of the Marcellus operators that submitted production reports on time is also provided.

The new law, Act 15 of 2010, required gas companies drilling into the Marcellus formation to report production totals from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010 by Aug. 15. Subsequent to this deadline, companies will be required to report production every six months, making the next report due Feb. 15.

Prior to Act 15, DEP was required by law to keep production reporting data confidential for five years.

For more information or to view the production reports of companies that met the deadline, visit www.depweb.state.pa.us.

A list of the Companies who missed the deadline and those who reported on time can be found here.

So far I'm less than impressed with these gas companies and their willingness to follow regulations.

My problem...PGE contracting the seismic testing to the company from Texas and they in turn hire workers that are not in the USA legally or have outstanding warrnants. Maybe it is time for Harrisburg to be concerned for the safety of the residents of PA. I'm sure there would be a simple way to background check the worker, like where is your green card? Oh, wait a minute I forgot, government can't do it simple,,they must make it difficult with tons of man power and paper work....

When you start believing without first investigating - you folks are in real big trouble! That's the whole problem - nobody reports the WHOLE truth. And, how would anybody know who is screwing whom - if nobody gets the REAL FACTS? Not allegations - FACTS!!!!!

Those guys work 7 days a week, 12 hours a day for minimum wage. That's 84 hours a week. To put it another way, about 85 hours a week more than most of the people complaining that there are no jobs are willing to work.

I don't see the problem... The only ones that need to know the production records are the gas companies and the mineral owners. I mean, why don't we all just post our income tax returns on this blog so we can see how much or how little everyone earns? Nobodies business, that's why.
