Babst Calland: Unconventional Well Report Act Signed Into Law in Pennsylvania

By Michael K. Reer

On October 22, 2014, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett signed House Bill 2278, The Unconventional Well Report Act, into law. The Act requires operators of unconventional wells to submit monthly production reports to the Department of Environmental Protection. The change is to revise Act 13, which had required semi-annual production reporting for unconventional wells. The initial report under the Act is due to the DEP on March 31, 2015, and thereafter monthly production reports are due 45 days after the close of the reporting period. The DEP will make the submitted reports available on its website and may use the reports in enforcement proceedings.
