DEP Reschedules Oil And Gas Technical Advisory Board Meeting To March 20

The Department of Environmental Protection announced on its website late Thursday it has rescheduled the next Oil and Gas Technical Advisory Board meeting to March 20 in Room 105 Rachel Carson Building in Harrisburg starting at 10:00.
Although no agenda has been posted, the Board was to review the proposed changes DEP plans to make in the Chapter 78 (unconventional drilling) and Chapter 78A (conventional drilling) regulations that were the subject of nine public hearings last year.
At DEP’s Citizens Advisory Council meeting Tuesday, DEP asked Council to nominate individuals for the Board which it did.  DEP is planning to replace all the current members of the Board and may add several ad hoc members to the Board.
DEP also announced this week it is forming the Conventional Oil and Gas Advisory Committee to provide advice on regulating the conventional oil and gas drilling industry.
