That 2015 date is from a bill that passed the Assembly, the NY Senate probably wont pass their bill to move this forward. Even if the Senate does, Cuomo could veto the bills. It is hard visualizing the Emperor doing such a thing. Any…"
The way I see it:
NY Joint Landowner Coalition is looking to sue the state for four different "takings" cases. If they are successful, a class action lawsuit would then commence, using these four cases as precedence. They would open…"
"Somewhat independent, except in this case the hydrocarbon maturity is tied to the geologic history of the shale. If they were able to migrate, the maturity could be different than the reservoir where there are today. Otherwise, maturity is a…"

Any holes in the ground yet? Are you having fun at your job?
