Marketing Our Coalition

The DEC comment period is officially over and all the speculation has begun on when permitting will finally happen in our state for High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing. Will the regulations be completed this year? Will NY allow HNHF in 2012? Will we get legitimate lease offers in the next 10 months? These are all valid questions for which I hope the answer is "YES," "YES," and "YES." However, we fully recognize that NY's political base doesn't exhibit the reason and stability that would ease the minds of the landowners and give a positive impression to industry that NY is open for business.

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. 

Antis Want Town Bans On Drilling

Anti Gas – Anti Growth – Anti Prosperity

They Are Coming To Your Town




Sensing defeat on the state level, local anti-gas groups are putting the pressure on local town boards to strip landowners of their rights to the full value of their properties.  Chenango County towns of Afton and Guilford and Otsego County towns of Butternuts, Middlefield, Otsego and Springfield have all been targeted by the anti-gas activist movement.  And if your town isn’t listed above, don’t think that it’s not on the agenda of the extreme environmentalists.

Negotations Heating Up

Cold Outside But Heating Up In Negotiations
Not all is dead in NY this winter!

It has been a tough winter in the Northeast. Record colds and heavy snows can easily bring our expenses up and drag our spirits down. Despite the cold weather, we are seeing things heating up in our negotiations. We are doing all can to bring a deal to you but we need your help to pressure Albany to remove the obstacles to drilling in NY. Read on to see how we can succeed together for the good of our communities and our state.

On behalf of our committee, Brian Conover


Over the past few months we have been talking with nearly 10 different gas companies. Some of them are just sniffing around NY, a few have good interest in our coalition

There are 194,500 acres represented in the Coalition as of 8/18/2010. The latest gas offers in New York State are $3000/acre with 20% royalties.
