Houston, Texas (PRWEB) August 06, 2012
In 2012, the United States has experienced an historic abundance of natural gas supplies, due partly to the nation’s large supply of shale gas reserves and partly due to the increased prevalence of hydraulic fracking technology. The national surplus of natural gas has resulted in numerous benefits to individuals throughout the country—including some that might be surprising. According to a recent Huffington Post story, farmers in areas such as New York and Pennsylvania stand to benefit from the large deposits of natural gas that lay underneath their properties. This report has elicited commentary from Aztec Oil & Gas, a crude oil and natural gas producer.
In a new statement to the press, Aztec Oil & Gas President Waylan Johnson says these surprising supplies of natural gas are ultimately a cause for celebration. “Aztec operates wells in Texas, yet we realize that finding natural gas reserves in other parts of the country is ultimately a boon to us all,” Johnson says. “New York is not the first place people think of when they think of natural gas production. Meanwhile, the Dakotas are quickly becoming fruitful areas for natural gas exploration. The landscape may be changing, but more domestic fuel production is, in the end, a good thing for America.”
The Huffington Post notes that there is currently a ban on fracking in New York while environmental testing is performed, but in areas such as Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia, natural gas production has proven highly beneficial. New York farmers hope that the natural gas deposits on their lands will also prove beneficial, and that water contamination and other health hazards do not become problematic.
“There are always going to be some risks associated with natural gas production on this level, but environmental testing could reveal whether drilling for this gas would be a blessing or a curse to these New York farmers,” Johnson offers. The Aztec Oil & Gas President goes on to say that, if drilling on these farmlands becomes possible, it could “financially benefit farmers throughout the area.”
The Huffington Post article notes that while some New York farmers remain wary of the potential for natural gas exploration, the 30,000-member New York Farm Bureau formally supports hydraulic fracking in the state—so long as tests reveal that it can be done safely and with minimal hazards to the environment, or to public health.
