What's Happening with Natural Gas Development in New York?
The outlook for widespread natural gas development in New York is still unclear as policy makers and other stakeholders continue to debate the risks and benefits. But much of upstate New York contains significant natural gas reserves that will continue to attract the gas industry. Therefore, rural landowners will still be faced with complicated decision regarding drilling and related activities such as pipelines, compressor stations, water storage and access roads. Cornell Cooperative Extension is offering an informational presentation to update landowners on the current status of gas development and to highlight key leasing recommendations.
This free workshop is open to the public and will be held on Wednesday, April 27, 2011 at 7 pm at the Amity Rescue Squad Center located at 5184 Route 244 in Belmont.
