NEW FEATURE: Pennsylvania Oil & Gas Weekly Compliance Dashboard – Nov. 5 to 11

To give the public a better understanding of the compliance record of oil and gas industrial facilities in Pennsylvania, PA Environment Digest is starting a new feature summarizing the more serious violations DEP reports through its Compliance Reporting Database on a weekly basis — Saturday through Friday.
By David E. Hess | PA Environment Digest Blog

This new feature will be in addition to PA Oil & Gas Industrial Facilities: Permit Notices/Opportunities To Comment, which lists the permits DEP is considering and has issued for oil and gas facilities.

Taken together, the public will get a weekly report on how the oil and gas industry is expanding across Pennsylvania and the kinds of environmental violations reported as a result of DEP’s inspections.

Send your feedback on these features to: paenvirodigest@gmail.com

This Week’s Summary
From November 5 through 11, DEP inspections resulted in reporting 255 violations of environmental regulations– 241 violations by the conventional oil and gas industry and 14 violations by the unconventional shale natural gas industry.

So far this year– as of November 4— DEP issued 4,208 formal notices of violation to conventional operators and 991 to unconventional shale gas operators.

The most significant problem reported again this week was seven instances of failure to plug conventional oil and gas wells upon abandoning them by Dannic Energy Corp in Butler County (1) and Erie County (1), Stedman Energy, Inc. in Erie County (3) and River Ridge Gravel Co. in Venango County (2).

The second most significant issue was the failure of River Ridge Gravel Co. to file annual production and waste disposal reports and well integrity reports for 54 wells in Venango County.

The production and waste report is critical to understanding how much wastewater and other waste those wells generated and where it was disposed of.

The annual integrity report is critical because it helps ensure the operator is taking the steps needed to prevent natural gas, oil or contaminated water leaks from oil and gas wells.

Report Violations

To report oil and gas violations or any environmental emergency or complaint, visit DEP’s Environmental Complaint webpage.
