EOG Resources Pays for Damages in Pollution of PA Creek

Drilling company EOG Resources has agreed to pay a financial settlement to Pennsylvania's Fish and Boat Commission following accusations that their extraction operations in the Marcellus Shale formation resulted in the pollution of Little Laurel Run in Clearfield County, PA.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time EOG Resources has been forced to shell out for contaminating important trout streams in Pennsylvania, leaving many to again question the intrinsic "safety" of intensifying gas drilling operations in and around our nation's most prized natural areas.
