Extension to review seismic tests, pipelines

NEW CASTLE — A program on seismic testing, pipeline agreements and leasing will be offered three times next week.

Penn State Extension and the Beaver-Lawrence Farm Bureau will present the program Tuesday in New Castle. It will be presented two more times on Thursday in Beaver County.

The New Castle session will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Ben Franklin Learning Center, 815 Cunningham Ave.

Thursday’s sessions are 1 to 3 p.m. at the Beaver County Extension office at 1000 Third St., Beaver, and 7 to 9 p.m. in the auditorium of the Student Union Building at the Penn State Beaver Campus.

There is a $10 charge for the session and pre-registration is required because of limited seating.

Dan Brockett and Jon Laughner, Penn State Marcellus Education Team educators will provide a description of seismic testing agreements and pipeline agreements — what they are, why they are needed and what options may be available for landowners.

A question-and-answer session will follow the discussion.

    An effort by local landowners to have forced pooling declared unconstitutional is getting some outside support. Two environmental groups — Delaware Riverkeeper Network and Mountain Watershed Association — have filed a friend of the court brief with Commonwealth Court.
