Huntley & Huntley meeting set for Tuesday on Allegheny Township Marcellus well
Huntley & Huntley Energy Exploration will hold a public meeting Tuesday to discuss the upcoming construction of the Porter well pad, an unconventional gas well located on private property along Willowbrook Road.
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the Markle Volunteer Fire Department social hall, 470 Joyce St., Allegheny Township (Apollo if using GPS to find the location).
Residents can expect to see increased traffic and excavation on approved properties, the Monroeville-based energy company said in a meeting announcement.
Huntley & Huntley representatives will present information on the project, its duration and answer residents’ questions.
Allegheny Township and Huntley & Huntley have an excess maintenance agreement for $597,000 to pay for damage and impact to roads for the development of the Marcellus Shale natural gas well.
Some residents tried unsuccessfully to stop the development of the well. The case went to the State Supreme Court, which declined to hear it, letting a lower court ruling stand that allowed the well pad project to go forward.
Allegheny Township property owners asked the state Supreme Court to review the Commonwealth Court ruling that they believe infringed on their “fundamental and constitutionally protected property and environmental rights.”
