Produced by the Oil and Gas Accountability Project, a citizens’ alliance, the guidebook presents a clear and realistic picture of the options landowners have when faced with development on their property.
Because many landowners own only the surface portion of their land, it’s unlikely they can stop drilling. However, landowners concerned with how an oil or gas rig will affect their property aren’t helpless. The guidebook suggests four steps: 1) Don’t panic; 2) Get educated; 3) Find allies; 4) Understand which government agencies are involved.
