Protecting The Rights Of Individuals, Families And Businesses Affected By Marcellus Shale Drilling
Housed thousands of feet below the ground, the Marcellus Shale contains an extraordinarily large amount of natural gas preserves. Due to limited access to these natural resources, drilling companies from throughout the country are turning to Pennsylvania in an attempt to tap into this resource. These companies must follow certain state and federal regulations to obtain permits and drill safely. Unfortunately, even with precautions in place, these drilling expeditions can and do lead to explosions and other negative consequences.
