The exploration and development of Marcellus shale gas raises significant land use issues. Our instructor discusses recent court decisions interpreting the preemption provisions of Pennsylvania’s Oil and Gas Act. Learn how the act affects the ability of local governments to use zoning and other land use planning tools to regulate well locations and influence the impacts of drilling. An informative course for local government officials, landowners and the attorneys who represent them.
This course was recorded in September 2010 at PBI`s Second Annual Oil & Gas Law Colloquium. Other sessions are available at PBI`s Online Campus.
