Notice of Public Comment Period

Proposed Well Spacing Variance

Project Description and Location: Alden Aurora Gas Co., Inc. (Alden Aurora or Applicant) has applied for a well permit and variance to the well spacing requirements set forth in Title 6 of the Official Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York (6 NYCRR) Section 553.1(a) to drill the Zoladz 3 (API 31-037-26369-00-00) Medina natural gas well on acreage to be designated as the Zoladz 3 Spacing Unit in the Town of Darien, Genesee County, New York. The Applicant proposes to drill, complete and produce the well, but needs a variance from the well spacing provisions set forth under 6 NYCRR 553.1(a) which require that, in the absence of a Department order establishing spacing units, a well cannot be closer than 1,320 feet from any oil and gas well in the same pool. A permit to drill is also required by 6 NYCRR 552.1.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) has proposed an order regarding the granting of a well spacing variance. NYS DEC supports the granting of the requested variance and issuance of the drilling permit.

Public Comment Period: All persons, organizations, corporations or government agencies which may be affected by the draft order are invited to submit written comments.

Dahl, NYS DEC - Division of Mineral Resources, Bureau of Oil and Gas Regulation, 625 Broadway, 3rd Floor, Albany, NY 12233-6500, Phone: (518) 402-8056.

If no substantive and significant issues are identified regarding the draft order at the end of the comment period, the order will become final and binding on the Applicant and its successors and assigns. Pursuant to the final order, the Department will grant the variance and issue a permit to drill the Zoladz 3 well at the proposed location subject to site-specific conditions as warranted.

Issuance of the permit to drill will provide for recovery of the natural gas resource in accordance with the policy provisions of ECL §23-0301.
