There has been an ongoing dispute in Pulaski Twp., PA regarding what Hilcorp terms their "central facility" versus what some think is actually a compressor station being disguised using different terms. Hilcorp has described the central facility as the place where a dehydrator removes water from the natural gas then compressors and fans cool the fans. Is that different than the function of and equipment used in a compressor station? There are some (mostly anti-fracking activists) who believe that Hilcorp is lying to the community by using the term central facility. Can someone help me understand the difference between the two?

My readings are about the same as yours of a compressor. Though the construction, Vertical , Horizontal ,Pipe laying, Hydofrac and Flaring noise is off the charts.  A typical well pad is done about a year, some take close to 2 years And just as by the way, hearing crickets is one of the reasons I live here. I don't mind change, though I like positive change. I don't see this as being well thought out to say the least.

Are you going to the Pulaski meeting tonight?..If you do I hope they will try to solve your problems. All I have ever gotten is stone walled and shut down. Maybe you will have better luck than me. Trust me on this one Michelle is a lease holder and is pro drilling as is Pulaski. So as long as you don't take away their $$$ they will nod their heads and DO NOTHING.... I hope that is not the case for you..

I wish I could make it but work keeps me out of town. I am a lease holder as well and I don't want this to turn into an ugly discussion. I think Michelle, like most in the township have good intentions. At the end of the day we are all neighbors and we must find a way to work things out. I do not own the property where the compressor station was placed so my complaint can only go so far. I just hope if more go in that the township does something to address the problem, not just foregoing a noise ordinance. I will contact Hilcorp and see what can be done. If it's nothing, that's life and this too shall pass. I know Hilcorp had fixed some issues but some remain unsolved. I don't have a problem with council members being leaseholders, but I do have a problem when someone calls a member and they answer the phone as Hilcorp.

I own a lease as well. Yes we all are neighbors and need to work this out. I feel the board is too conflicted period.  While some may have good intentions I feel that money has corrupted this process..The only thing I don't agree with you on is the " that's life and this too shall pass".. That is not my style. If that is your style that is OK.... WE are neighbors...Different thinking is good...:)
