PITTSBURGH (NEWSRADIO 1020 KDKA) – Range Resources may not be the exclusive drilling company for Mount Pleasant Township much longer. With a vote nearing at the end of the month, Range Resources is threatening legal action to take their drilling to “more cooperative communities,” if a common ground can not be met.
A key point in the township’s battle with Range is the long-standing refusal to allow bunkhouses at drill sites for well-foremen. The drilling company claims they need a foremen on-site 24/7 and that allowing the bunks reduces vehicle traffic to and from the site.
Range Resources Spokesman Matt Pitzarella joined KDKA Radio’s Larry and John to discuss the matter.
