Citizens’ Guide to Fracking Permits in West Virginia
Are you confused by the complicated permitting process required for shale gas development and it’s related infrastructure? Between well pad construction, hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and the pipelines needed to transport the fracked gas, there are multiple permits companies must receive from the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) before construction can begin.
