Legislation Being Developed Regarding Horizontal Well Forced Pooling

During the 2010 regular session of the W.Va. Legislature, legislation was reviewed with key legislators that would create a new code section to deal with forced pooling under a new horizontal well board. LGCR developed the legislation along with key horizontal well drillers. WVONGA picked up on this legislative proposal, and for the 2011 legislative session the association has developed draft legislation to achieve similar goals. Meetings are ongoing to finalize the draft of a bill that will be presented during the 2011 legislative session. LGCR is substantially involved in this effort.
