Sen. Vogel To Reintroduce Bill To Reduce Waste Reporting From Marcellus Gas Wells

Sen. Elder Vogel (R-Beaver) Tuesday circulated a co-sponsor memo to colleagues announcing the reintroduction of Senate Bill 1273 that would eliminate monthly reporting of drilling waste from Marcellus Shale operations and replace it with a report every six months.
The monthly reporting requirement is in DEP’s new unconventional drilling regulations and has been contested by the Marcellus Shale industry.
The bill would amend the Unconventional Well Report Act, which sets reporting requirements for natural gas production, not the law setting environmental standards-- Act 13 of 2012. This would be the first environmental requirement put into the Well Report Act.
