"We launched this investigation to determine what information about oil and gas company violations is publicly available on the Internet, how accessible it is, and whether it provides an adequate understanding about the practices of different companies."
"Pennsylvania’s traditional oil and gas companies have asked for evidence that their impact on the environment could justify stronger regulations that the state wants to apply to their operations. The state Department of Environmental Protection is preparing to show it to them in full color. Regulators have compiled hundreds of photographs taken by field inspectors in recent years to document violations at traditional, shallow well sites — small, often family-run operations that predate the Marcellus Shale drilling boom by generations and have continued pumping in its shadow."
