Drilling in Greene County

Curious if anyone can shed some light on why it appears that there are far fewer permits pulled and wells drilled in the southern townships within Greene County? I am specifically speaking of Perry,…Continue

Guidance on Greene County Drilling

Good morning, I own some acreage in Greene County along the Perry and Whitely township lines. Drilling has been slow in this area. I no longer live in PA but will be back later this month and was hoping that there might be a "local expert" who I could meet with to understand this area a little better. Would appreciate any guidance.See More

"Thanks Farmer! Does that mean to there is less opportunity for them to mine these areas because the coal has been removed in the past using older, conventional methods?"

"I think it’s that they need a certain amount of solid coal to build the pad above and to drill the verticals through."

Fracking in long wall mining areas

My brother and I own some acreage in Greene County along the Perry and Whiteley Township border. The property is close to a number of older long wall mining sites.  It seems that these more conventional mines are preventing or inhibiting EQT and others from fracking in the area. Is this accurate and can anyone provide insights if this will change in the future?See More
