Owner of Natural Gas Company to Sue Council for Fracking Ban that Affect his Business
A natural gas drilling company is suing state regulators and a western New York town where it has operated for decades over a local moratorium that threatens to put the company out of business.
"I've drilled over 100 wells in this county," said John Holko, owner of Lenape Resources, a small natural gas company based in Alexander, 35 miles southwest of Rochester. "I have 100 miles of pipeline, compressor stations and a disposal well. I supply gas to farmers, industrial users and interstate commerce. Now, because three guys on a town board decide they don't want me here anymore, I'm out of business. There's something dramatically wrong with that."
If Lenape Resources has been operating in the region for decades, then why has natural gas been suddenly banned?
