Methane Gas Drilling Video Presentations

Postby HVPA_research » Thu Jul 02, 2009 9:51 pm

Here is a link to several excellent video presentations from concerned residents groups in New York state, USA.
Marcellus Shale Gas Drilling and Water
These video presentations explain both horizontal and vertical drilling technology that is used for extracting shale gas. This is quite similar to the technology proposed by AGL for extracting coal seam methane (CSM or CSG) in our valley. The first presentation goes into great detail on hydraulic fracturing, why gas companies do it and what are the dangers. The second presentation deals with legal problems of water contamination in private wells. It is amazing how much one can learn from someone who experienced these things first hand. Anyone who wants to form an opinion on what AGL has in store for us should see these educational videos first. It would be an hour well spent!
