The February 3 Environmental Quality Board meeting on the final Chapter 78 (conventional) and 78A (unconventional) drilling regulations will be webcast live by DEP.
The amendments to DEP’s oil and gas regulations address surface activities at well sites, and center on five core areas: improve protection of water resources, add public resources considerations, protect public health and safety, address landowner concerns, and enhance transparency and improve data management.
