Notice of Intent to Issue an Interim Order for County Line Field Which Establishes Spacing Units and Releases Royalties

The Department hereby gives notice of its intent to issue an Interim Order ("Order") to establish spacing units and release royalties for the wells in County Line Field listed in the following table. This notice is given pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law ("ECL") ß23-0503(5). The Order to be issued pursuant to this notice will NOT include terms and procedures for integrating interests in the spacing units. Integration terms and procedures will be established by a final order at a later date.

County Line Field Units to Be Established by Interim Order
Spacing Unit Operator Well Name Town County API Number
Fortuna Energy Inc. Purvis 1 Dix Schuyler 31-097-22893-00-00
Fortuna Energy Inc. Roy 1 Catlin Chemung 31-015-22901-00-00
Fortuna Energy Inc. Whiteman 1 Catlin Chemung 31-015-22839-00-00

Important milestones regarding the development of County Line Field and the hearing process with respect to the three units to be established by the Order are as follows:

The Mineral Resources regulations at 6 NYCRR 550.4 (f) state that, "Except as hereinafter provided, unless there is a significant indication of changed conditions, the department will not hold a hearing on any matter which has already been the subject of a prior hearing." Therefore, because configuration of the Purvis, Roy, and Whiteman spacing units as proposed by the Department and Fortuna has been previously reviewed and upheld through the hearing process, the Department is not seeking further public comment.
