Propane Well Stimulation in Tioga County

BINGHAMTON – July 8, 2015 – The Joint Landowners Coalition of New York issued the following press release in response to the Snyder Farm Group well permit applications in Tioga County, New York:

Dan Fitzsimmons, President of the Joint Landowners Coalition of New York said:

“The Joint Landowners Coalition of New York congratulates the Snyder Farm Group for taking the steps necessary to protect and preserve their family farms while safely developing the mineral resources beneath their land. We support the Snyder Farm Group in their quest to develop a natural gas well using gelled propane technology, which is outside the scope of New York State’s ban on high-volume hydraulic fracturing. We join our elected representatives in urging the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to conduct a thorough review of the Snyder Farm Group’s permit applications, focusing on science, technology and facts. DEC itself has characterized the use of propane to fracture shale as an environmentally friendly approach that does not create the wastes associated with other fracturing technologies. We are encouraged by the DEC’s position and look forward to a successful outcome for the Snyder Farm Group.”
