The Pennsylvania Independent Oil and Gas Association (PIOGA) encourages commonwealth citizens to leave comments about their concerns related to the state Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Final Draft Rule revisions by the May 19 deadline.
The revisions are specific to Chapter 78, Subchapter C regulations governing oil and gas surface operations.
The ruling, a culmination of approximately four years’ worth of work, is expected to critically impact oil and gas operators. PIOGA is deeply concerned about many aspects of the proposal. It will be submitting comprehensive formal comments on behalf of the association’s members, but also strongly desires public input.
