Dialogue on Natural Gas Well Drilling
Recently, the Daily News Record* reported that Carrizo (Marcellus Shale) Oil and Gas company, citing local resistance, would not continue to pursue a permit to mine natural gas in Bergton. However, Carrizo did make it clear it fully intends to proceed. “[We]…will take that permitting process up at a later date,” stated Brad Fisher, vice president and chief executive officer.
Thus, hydrofracking will continue to be an issue for the foreseeable future.
The North Fork of the Shenandoah, home to abundant wildlife and recreational opportunities, is downstream from the proposed drilling site.
