Emergency Services Secured for Marcellus Shale Region
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has secured the services of CUDD Well Control to provide emergency response services in Pennsylvania in case an emergency arises from any of the Marcellus Shale wells. DEP has taken this step in response to recent high-profile accidents at natural gas wells in Pennsylvania.
The company will establish a new facility in Canton Township, Bradford County, allowing Cudd’s highly specialized, well-equipped emergency response crew to respond to any natural gas well in Pennsylvania within five hours.
The state will only employ CUDD’s services when needed through emergency contracts on a case-by-case basis. This process will limit costs to taxpayers to events when CUDD personnel are mobilized.
