you wouldnt want Schlumberger to drill in your community not unless you want containamented wells. in Rock Springs Wyoming Schlumberger contracted US Transport to move its 30/50 sand that was used in fracking gas wells the sand has 200 chemicals mixed in with it instead of disposing of it a an EPA approved toxic waste dump they took it to the city dump and dumped there and told the workers at the city it was clean sand now Rock Springs water supply is in peril

Schlumberger is not a drilling company nor does it have a well permit in the state of New York, you sound like an uneducated tree hugger with something to complain about. If you are worried about upstate New York put a fence around it and live with the Canadian's,and let the windmills keep your a-- warm in the winter.
