Any good news?

I know we constantly hear from the people that are opposed to gas drilling in PA... Even tho it has been going on for 125 years..... But my question is... Does anyone have good stories? like... I got a well on my property and the operators of the well planted a food plot for me.... the money from the royalties helped pay my taxes.... helped pay for my crops this year??? free gas??

Yep. Range Resources got in contact with QDMA and asked for food plot recommendations. We're busy making them a list of mixes, seed companies, etc. that will be very wildlife friendly.

I certainly appreciate their pro-active approach!

Re: Any good news?

thats awesome! As long as the growth comes back every year, that is a great thing.

Re: Any good news?

We're giving them several different mixture choices, and instructions for the land owner for each to maintain them.

The landowner can pick the mix that best meets their desired goals. It'll be a good thing I hope!

In the process of repaving our road right now. Doing a nice job too! Contracted Glen Hawbaker a Pa firm and paid for by Talisman, not the taxpayers.

Re: Any good news?

just remember when picking seed, under Well site restorations in 25 PA CODE i thnk its 102.11- well site restoration falls on the operator.... so they are going to want to plant something that comes back every year. clover being a huge percentage.

Hawbecker is currently repaving one PADOT road in the twp. my camp is in, after PADOT closed that road to gas exploration traffic. Pretty sure the gas companies had bonded that road for repairs?

Here's the thing: The part that Hawbecker is redoing now, was always a gravel road that PADOT had just oiled/chipped over some years ago, without ever improving the stone base, so it never really stayed together. They just patched it each spring, after the normal winter "heave" and spring thaw. Blaming gas company traffic for destroying this road, was a joke. It wasn't really much of a road prior to the gas drilling.

Novus has two wells in the twp. and although they didn't bond every twp. gravel road in the area, they did regrade/repair all of them this spring. Any soft spots from winter travel, were dug up and filled with crushed limestone (not gravel). Whether gas trucks had used the road, or not.

Those roads are now in very good shape, some are now better than the twp. ever kept them, prior to the gas exploration.

So are these township roads or PennDOT roads?

Re: Any good news?

Think I'd clearly explained that? I'll go back and highlight it.

Re: Any good news?

Sorry
When you said Gravel road, oiled & chipped thats what are township roads are up here and we got alot more township roads than PennDot roads.Are roads were made to see a milk truck go down them once or twice a week.Not 50 or 60 water/triaxle trucks a day.These are roads my wife and I take to work, kids take to school.Maybe they all should be PennDot roads then they would be evenly taxed through out the whole state.But I like my gravel roads, and I want to stay as far away from Rendall's armpits as I can.
