Judge: Range Resources Must Disclose List of All Chemicals Used at Drilling Site
Range Resources will be held responsible for disclosing a full list of products and chemicals it used at a Marcellus Shale gas-drilling site in Amwell Township, according to a pair of recent rulings.Read the rest of that article by clicking here.
Both a state Environmental Hearing Board judge and Washington County President Judge Debbie O’Dell Seneca ruled last week Range Resources is in the best position to obtain the list of chemicals, including proprietary substances, from its manufacturers. A Washington County Court order in November 2013 required Range Resources’ suppliers – about 40 contractors and subcontractors – to provide that list. According to O’Dell Seneca, the suppliers could not or would not comply.
Range Resources is the defendant in a lawsuit filed by three Amwell Township families who claimed they suffered health problems attributed to drilling activity and an impoundment at the company’s Yeager well site on McAdams Road.
O’Dell Seneca waited to give her opinion until a related decision was filed by Judge Thomas W. Renwand through the Environmental Hearing Board.
