Financial Impact of Natural Gas Drilling

Counties throughout Pennsylvania learned what their shares will be from the impact fee collected from natural gas drilling.

Bradford County will collect nearly $7 million from the fee. Susquehanna County gets $5.4 million.

Nearly $5 million goes to Lycoming County, and Wyoming County’s share is expected to be a little more than $1 million.

All four counties are among the most in the state.

Townships, boroughs, and cities found out their shares on Monday as well. The funds come from a statewide distribution of $135 million, paid by companies drilling gas in Pennsylvania last year.
