Pennsylvania -(Ammoland.com)- The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners today approved a measure that would allow Susquehanna Exploration and Production LLC to drill a third well on State Game Lands 262 in Indiana County.
In exchange for the approval, gas will be piped and provided free annually to a Game Commission food and cover building from an existing well on the game lands.
Susquehanna has two existing wells on State Game Lands 262 that result from an agreement approved in April 2004. Under the agreement, the Game Commission approved an assignment of oil and gas rights on a more than 99-acre parcel in exchange for coal and coal mining rights on nearly 178 acres located on State Game Lands 262 in Banks Township, Indiana County. That agreement now has been amended to include the rights to drill a third well.
In exchange for the rights to drill and produce the new well, Susquehanna would install a 5,000-foot pipeline from an existing well and provide up to 250 MCF of free gas annually to the commission’s food and cover building on State Game Lands 262. That well is located on a portion of the game lands for which the commission does not own oil and gas rights.
