Get Proactive About Local Meetings!  Science Is On Our Side!

The Fight In Your Backyard!

As we inch closer to the state's release of the SGEIS this June, it appears as though science is winning the debate at the state level.  After nearly three years of intense study, our state Department of Environmental Conservation seems more swayed by their scientific research than by the fear-filled misinformation spread by anti-gas organizations.

It’s Good News All The Way Around For Gas Drilling

Since our last newsletter, there has been positive news for those who desire gas drilling to ramp up in New York.  First of all, your votes greatly influenced some critical elections in our state.  Because of your voting voice we will have more elected officials in New York that are willing to represent landowners rights and interests than in previous years.  Beyond the elections of November, we want to highlight a few positive developments that you will want to know about – you can read about them below. 

Thanks for partnering with the Central New York Landowner’s Coalition.  From everyone on the coalition committee, have a very Merry Christmas and enjoyable holidays!

Letter from Brian Conover: SOS - Rally in Albany sponsored by the JLC

Dear Coalition Friend:

We know that your time is very important so we would not want to ask too much of you. However, this Wednesday brings a critical event that desperately needs your full support. The Joint Landowner's Coalition of New York is hosting a rally in Albany on Wednesday, June 9th. Buses will be leaving from various locations throughout the Southerntier and upstate NY. If we do not have a tremendous showing of support for this rally, this very well may be the end of our gas drilling prospects for many years to come.

Multiple pays yield gas in [Upstate] New York

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 27 -- Gastem Inc., Montreal, found gas in one sand and two shales with good thickness at its first well in a planned drilling program on 35,000 acres in western New York.

The Ross-1 vertical well in Otsego County yielded gas from Ordovician Utica shale, Silurian Oneida sand, and Devonian Marcellus shale, the company said. TD is 4,950 ft. The three zones “will be the subject of extensive programs in the coming months,” the company said.
