Gas Drilling Is Called Safe in New York
Huh? I was born and raised in the Southern Tier area of New York State (Chautauqua County), near Erie, Pennsylvania. They have been drilling natural gas wells there forever. Right across the border is Titisville and Oil City, Pa., nothing but oil and gas wells. My aunt had a farm south of Buffalo and had six natural gas wells drilling there for 30-years, she sold the drilling rights right after she bought the farm, and never had to work a day in her life. What in the hell is fracking? Some new type of drilling. Entire area from Buffalo, N.Y. all along that Lake Erie shore is soft limestone, anybody who drills hits gas or oil.........stan
