The NORTH CENTRAL TEXAS COMMUNITIES ALLIANCE will present GAS DRILLING 101 next Tuesday, June 29, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at the Corinth City Hall, 3300 Corinth Parkway, Corinth, TX 76208. This informative program was developed by key members of the NCTCA Advisory Board after repeated requests by individuals, organizations, and communities for an educational program that would offer the “basics” in terminology and history on gas drilling procedures and ordinances.
“The program is not meant to make folks ‘experts,’ but rather to give them a working knowledge of basic facts and terminology so that they can have more effective communications with both the gas drilling industry, their elected officials and area municipal personnel” explained Esther McElfish, NCTCA President.
NCTCA presenters include Advisory Board members Jerry Lobdill, Vice-President Gary Hogan, and Treasurer Louis McBee. There will be an opportunity for a question and answer period following their presentation.
The program is open to the public (adults and youth, alike!). If you or your neighbors are being approached to sign a lease with a natural gas well drilling company, this is the perfect opportunity to educate yourself on the entire process. All residents in the surrounding communities are also invited to attend.
