Range Resources Argues That It Was Improperly Denied Permit
May 3, 2013
Range Resources argued in the Court of Common Pleas of Washington County, Pennsylvania this week that it was improperly denied conditional use permits to place well pads in Robinson Township. Counsel for Range Resources argued that the Township Supervisors did not follow the correct process, actively sought members of the public to speak out against Range Resources at public hearings, and held the proposed wells to a higher standard than required by the Township for wells approved in 2010. The Township’s counsel stated in the hearing that Range resources did not provide enough information in its conditional use applications.
