DEP gives Cabot OK to resume gas operations in Pennsylvania
Cabot Oil & Gas has had several spills of chemicals used in the hydraulic fracturing process at one of their drilling sites in Dimock Township, Pennsylvania. The spills have led to fish dying in the local Stevens Creek. The PA Department of Environmental Protection shut them down for a while and conducted a review. Cabot is now back in business. From the article:
Cabot Oil & Gas has been given approval to resume work to produce natural gas from the Marcellus Shale after spills in Dimock Township halted certain operations.
The approval came Friday after DEP officials reviewed Cabot’s plans to limit future problems and respond to emergencies.
