Back in the 19th century, when anthracite coal was in big demand, coal mining was the dominant industry here in our region. The greed and determination of the coal barons left little time or care to consider the consequences of their actions: environmental damage, the health hazards of black lung and the danger of economic dependence on a single, limited resource. Mine owners gave reassurances that everything would be fine. When the demand for coal finally waned, those same mine operators declared themselves bankrupt, pocketed millions in profits and left the area. Their legacy remains in plain sight today: towering piles of culm, mine fires, subsidence issues and a struggling economy. The damage is taking decades of work and too many tax dollars to fix, and the area has yet to fully recover.
With the discovery of Marcellus Shale, we may be seeing history repeat itself.
And just like the coal barons, these drillers have deep pockets. To take them on and win, you need a depth of experience and a breadth of resources. As a founding member of the Marcellus Shale Oil & Gas Litigation Group, O'Malley & Langan is part of a team that has what it takes to get the job done.
When the drillers have taken everything they can out of our region, they - just like the coal barons before them - will pull up stakes and leave. It is imperative that, as neighbors and citizens, we take assertive action now, together, to make sure they are held accountable for their actions, are willing to address concerns and solve problems while they still have an economic stake in the area.
If you are dealing with any kind of concern that relates to oil and gas drilling, and you want a strong ally on your side, call O'Malley & Langan today.
