Final Hearing on Oil, Gas Regulations Draws Crowd in Warren

The state’s Environmental Quality Board (EQB) held its final hearing on proposed oil and gas regulations Wednesday evening before a crowd of several hundred people at the Warren County Courthouse.
I was among dozens of citizens who stood to testify before the board as it considers sweeping changes to regulations that will impact both conventional and unconventional drillers in Pennsylvania.

A number of independent oil producers shared their concerns about the regulations, which are geared primarily toward large-scale unconventional wells. They explained why they believe the regulations are unnecessary for shallow well drillers and how the regulations, if enacted, could drive them out of business and cost many people their jobs.

Although no additional hearings are planned, the board will continue accepting public comment through March 14. For more information about how to submit testimony online or by mail, click here.
