Co Tenancy Agenda v2

  • August 11th is Nationwide 811 Day, an annual initiative led by the U.S. Department of Transportation
  • The initiative promotes safe digging practices to avoid damage to underground utilities
  • Excavation is the leading cause of pipeline incidents, but is easily preventable 

Clarksburg, W.Va. – National 811 Day is Sunday, August 11, and Dominion Energy is urging homeowners and professional excavators to put safety first by calling 811 to have underground utility lines located before any digging project. A recent nationwide survey found 42% of homeowners will put themselves and the safety of their community at risk by not calling 811 before they dig. 

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — For the 10th straight year the output of West Virginia oil and natural gas production has risen, bringing record-high numbers, according to data from the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

West Virginia Oil & Natural Gas Association (WVONGA) said numbers from the DEP’s Office of Oil and Natural Gas indicated production of natural gas in 2018 rose to 1.8 Tcf (trillion cubic feet) from 1.5 Tcf in 2017, a year-over-year increase of 17 percent.

Anne Blankenship, Executive Director of WVONGA attributed the consistent rise to a few things on Wednesday’s MetroNews ‘Talkline.’

“The boom in the Marcellus Shale here that we are sitting on top of in West Virginia and more specifically the advances in technology that we make every year,” she said.

She added the drilling technology getting better and better equals an increase in production which turns to gas prices being lower.
