Spacing and Integration Order Cutler Creek Field

The Oil, Gas and Solution Mining Law requires public notice and hearing to implement field-wide spacing and integration rules when necessary to prevent waste, provide greater ultimate recovery of the hydrocarbon resource and protect the correlative rights of all owners, including landowners. Public hearings took place in Painted Post, New York, on August 28 and 29, 2002 on the matter of field-wide spacing and integration in the Cutler Creek Field. This field is located in the towns of Corning and Erwin in Steuben County.
