With a State imposed “impact fee” on the horizon based upon individual gas drilling rig sites per county, the actual number of drilling sites operating in Pennsylvania is being questioned. According to reports the DEP failed to account for over 450 active drill sites in its latest assessment of the natural gas industry in the Marcellus Shale regions of the state. DEP spokespersons acknowledged the oversight and pledged to review DEP accounting methods. Environmental and local officials are very concerned over the manner in which DEP is operating on this and other major natural gas drilling issues.
