House of Representatives
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: May 7, 2014 09:07 AM
From: Representative Tina Pickett
To: All House members
Subject: Natural gas well reporting requirements
With growth of natural gas production in the Marcellus Shale, in 2010 we passed Act 15 requiring that operators file a semi-annual production report with DEP so that landowners and royalty owners can use this information to verify that they are receiving proper value from the oil or gas production under their leases.

As this industry continues to develop we have seen the need for monthly reporting requirements so that production reports are more comparable to monthly royalty payments. This will allow greater transparency for our land owners and provide a better understanding of production across the commonwealth.

I hope you will join me in cosponsoring this important piece of legislation.
