Susquehanna River Basin Commission Approved 36 Shale Gas Well Drilling Pad Water Use Permits In Bradford, Clearfield, Lycoming, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Tioga, Wyoming Counties

In April, the Executive Director of the
Susquehanna River Basin Commission gave his approval to 36 water use permits for individual shale gas well drilling pads in Bradford, Clearfield, Lycoming, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Tioga and Wyoming counties.  (formal notice)

The companies involved were Chesapeake Appalachia, LLC, Coterie Energy, Inc., Repsol Oil & Gas USA, LLC, BKV Operating, LLC, Seneca Resources Company, LLC, Range Resources-Appalachia, LLC, and SWN Production Company, LLC.

The approvals were granted under SRBC regulation 18 CFR 806.22(e) and (f) that creates a general permit-type process to grant approval for water use by individual shale gas drilling pads.

A separate water withdrawal approval is required by SRBC for actually withdrawing water from a specific water source for use by shale gas drilling operations.  Read more here.
