WVONGA seeks passage of HB 2834

Charleston, W.Va. (February 11, 2019) – With the goals of making West Virginia more competitive with our neighboring shale states, decreasing the environmental footprint and protecting the rights of others, the West Virginia Oil & Natural Gas Association (WVONGA) strongly supports House Bill 2834, legislation to modernize the minimum spacing provisions for the drilling of horizontal deep wells. 

“To encourage investment in our state’s natural gas industry and keep us competitive with surrounding states, deep well spacing requirements must be modified to account for the technological advances that have been made in horizontal well development,” said Anne Blankenship, executive director of WVONGA.  “Modifications in West Virginia’s statute, like those proposed in HB 2834, will enable future growth in the Utica Shale formation and allow operators the ability to embrace modern, safe technological advances that reduce environmental impact.”
