Tom Wolf on Energy & Oil

 


Moratorium on gas drilling in state parks and state forests

All four Democratic candidates would oppose a broad moratorium on natural gas drilling, support a moratorium on drilling in state parks and state forests and in the Delaware River Basin, and oppose reducing local governments' zoning authority over drilling activity. They would also seek to require exploration companies to publicly disclose chemicals used in fracking. In addition, McCord would seek a ban on the use of open wastewater pits and the waterway discharge of drilling wastewater.

Take advantage of Marcellus Shale

With Pennsylvania sitting on one of the largest deposits of natural gas in the world, Tom Wolf believes that the Marcellus Shale must be a key component of any plan for Pennsylvania's future. We must ensure that we take advantage of this resource and opportunity in a way that benefits all Pennsylvanians and protects our water and environment.

Four years ago Tom Wolf called for a severance tax on natural gas extraction and responsible development, saying: "Pennsylvania is sitting on one of the largest deposits of natural gas in the world, the Marcellus Shale formation, which stretches from our northeast to southwest corner. With new drilling techniques we can now efficiently unlock these massive natural gas deposits that lie beneath huge portions of our state. That would make our commonwealth the Saudi Arabia of natural gas and, if managed correctly, transform our economy." Tom Wolf believes Marcellus Shale must be a key component of any plan for Pennsylvania's economic future.
