STRONGER Completes Follow-up Review Of Pennsylvania Oil And Gas Regulatory Program
May 31, 2013
Over this past week (May 28th through 31st), a review team assembled by the State Review of Oil & Natural Gas Environmental Regulations (“STRONGER”) has conducted an in-state review of Pennsylvania’s Oil and Gas Regulatory Program. The six person review team consisted of representatives from other state regulatory entities, the oil and gas industry, and public interest organizations. Pennsylvania’s program has been reviewed four times since 1990, the last being in 2010. Following the in-state review, the STRONGER review team members will complete a written report that will be published on STRONGER’s website. The written report must follow the established guidelines developed by STRONGER and adopted by the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission.
