The Pennsylvania Bar Institute will hold an oil and gas seminar:
On Friday, August 20, The Pennsylvania Bar Institute is sponsoring a program examining the latest developments in Pennsylvania Oil and Gas Law. The event will be held at the Washington County Bar Association at 119 South College Street, Washington, PA. The program begins at 9:00 a.m. and will end at 1:30 p.m. With millions of Americans watching the oil drilling disaster unfold in the Gulf of Mexico, Governor Edward G. Rendell continues to push for his plan asking energy companies that drill for gas in the Marcellus Shale to pay a fair extraction tax. The recent blowout of a Marcellus well in Clearfield County demonstrated the impact that drilling operations can have on the environment and residents of Pennsylvania.
