These "appointed" Marcellus Committee Members have vested and direct interests in the Oil & Gas Industry :
How many Rights or Surface Owners are fully represented and appointed to this committee ?
Conflict of interest, very well could be. As for the ones who own mineral rights, I would like to think they would have a better understanding as to what the land and mineral owners are up against. Being against "Forced Pooling" and or not allowing it to be a part of this is a good start.
The ones who favor "Forced Pooling" and want it in, then yes, it is a hugh conflict of interest !
Ireland says "Forced Pooling" would become a "poison pill" in any regulatory bill it was in.
Facemire stated "Forced Pooling" didn't belong in a regulatory bill.
