DEP Fines Cabot Oil & Gas for Susquehanna County Well Control Incident


BROOKLYN TOWNSHIP — Cabot Oil & Gas has been fined for a problem at one of its well pads in Susquehanna County.

The Department of Environmental Protection announced Tuesday that it fined Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. $76,546.

DEP said a contractor replacing equipment at a natural gas well pad near Brooklyn back in January did not follow standard operating procedure, allowing gas to escape.

The company is blamed for losing control of the gas well in Susquehanna County for 27 hours.
