I was speaking at a conference yesterday in Pittsburgh and shared the podium with Craig Neal from CNX.
CNX has been drilling gas wells in Pennsylvania for decades. It has 9,000 shallow wells. It also has Marcellus wells.
As of May, CNX no longer discharges any drilling wastewater from any of its shallow or Marcellus wells. Congratulations to CNX and thank you.
The Marcellus development has put an end to a decades long practice of discharging drilling wastewater from shallow wells untreated for Total Dissolved Solids into Pennsylvania's rivers and streams.
And how many Pennsylvanians are aware of this major environmental improvement?
