|Subject:||Proposed Legislation - Notification of Proposed Well|
In the near future, I plan to reintroduce former HB 1594 amending the Oil and Gas Act (Act 223 of 1984) to clarify requirements related to well permits.
More specifically, current law requires that oil and gas permit applications must include “the name of all surface landowners or water purveyors whose water supplies are within 1,000 feet of the proposed well location...” and notifications must be sent to “the surface landowner, all surface landowners or water purveyors whose water supplies are within 1,000 feet of the proposed well location...”
My legislation clarifies these provisions such that all surface landowners and water purveyors within 1,000 feet of a proposed well are clearly identified in the application and provided notice under the Act.
