House Committee To Consider Bill To Compensate Landowners For Drilling Rights If DRBC

The House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee is scheduled to meet on March 26 to consider a bill requiring compensation to landowners for their drilling rights if the Delaware River Basin Commission adopts a ban on fracking and 2 other bills--
-- House Bill 827 (Fritz-R-Wayne) which requiring compensation for oil and gas rights owners in Delaware River Watershed if the Delaware River Basin Commission adopts a permanent ban on fracking (sponsor summary). (Click Here for more background on compensating landowners and a companion bill in the Senate-- Senate Bill 305.)
-- House Bill 828 (Fritz-R-Wayne) authorizes DEP to issue one permit for multiple gas wells on a single pad instead of individual well permits, extends the term of well permits from 1 to 3 years and allows well locations to vary within 50 feet of specific locations identified on the well permit (sponsor summary). These reforms were included in a DEP white paper Gov. Wolf released in January of 2018.
