by the way...

Independent oil and natural gas company Exco Resources Inc. said Friday that news reports suggesting the company has been issued a cease and desist order on drilling activities in a certain part of the Marcellus Shale are not accurate.

The Dallas-based company said a local township supervisor did send a letter to Exco raising some concerns about the zoning designation of an area where Exco had drilled a vertical well, but the company has the necessary permissions to drill in the area and operations continue.

... the letter was sent after two local citizens sent a letter raising concerns about the zoning. Exco issued a statement Friday ensuring that drilling in the Marcellus shale continues without interruption.

Exco added that the company has all the permits required for drilling and has scheduled meetings to discuss some of the zoning concerns of the residents.
