Add comment on:From Oil Fields to Gas Pools: What's Not Included In The Regulations For Industry

Never mentioned, are the terms “gas wells”, or the “surface map boundary” of “pools” (legally defined in mineral rights) which is how Natural Gas development by hydraulic fracture drilling by “community or forced pooling' and eminent domain occur, but which may not in California constitute a “field”. Horizontal, deviant, or directional drilling operations can drill in several directions for miles, from one well site.
