DIMOCK TOWNSHIP — The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has given a natural gas drilling company permission to resume hydrolic fracturing operations at seven wells.

DEP ordered Cabot Oil and Gas to stop drilling near Dimock in 2010 when residents complained about methane seeping into their water wells.

State officials say Cabot still cannot drill any new wells in the Dimock area.
