W.Va. DEP Encourages Operators To Follow New Horizontal Well Permitting Checklist

During last week's W.Va. DEP forum for natural gas producers, the agency encouraged horizontal producers to follow a new "Checklist for Filing a Horizontal Well 6A Permit."  Operators who follow this checklist will help DEP expedite the permit review and approval process, the agency said. Provided is a link to this checklist.

The DEP also shared a "Frequently Asked Questions" document that provides information and details about the state's new Natural Gas Horizontal Well Control Act.  Here is a link to this FAQ document.
