Report: Pa. has 200,000 abandoned oil, gas wells
Pennsylvania has an estimated 200,000 abandoned oil and gas wells, but knows the location of only a tiny fraction of them - a potential problem for Marcellus Shale drillers trying to avoid the old wells, according to a published report.

I know PA has so much natural gas it seeps into the water table some places.
My husband is in the 'underground' business. About 28 years experience. It all sounds like rocket science to me, but they do know how to find and remove the energy resources safely. Directional drilling has made huge strides just in the past five years.
They just did a 6700' directional drill in Chester County PA that tested 'safe' first time. That's a big deal.
If Romney is elected and we go for energy independence, PA is going to be a big winner as far as jobs and tax revenue.
Coal is clean. We have scrubbers. And it's a way of life.
FACT: The USA coal reserves contain TWELVE TIMES the energy as all the oil in Saudia Arabia.
If Obama is re-elected, we are screwed.
By the way, I live 3 miles, as the crow flys, from an oil refinery that's 40 years old. I don't even know it's there. No noise, no odor, no soot and it employees 700 and supports local businesses.
If we drill on federal land and offshore, we'll need five more built.
We gotta get energy independent and out of the mess in the mideast.
The Benghazi scandal will get Obama impeached anyway.
