Problems with Water Quality Contamination near Gas and Oil Drilling Sites
The oil and gas industry in West Virginia was significant in our past and is vital to our future. Presently, the state of West Virginia is anticipating tremendous economic growth as the oil and gas industry develops. Not only are thousands of jobs being created, this homegrown energy could possibly eliminate some, if not all, of our dependence on other countries for our energy needs which may increase our national security. This natural gas resurgence could also be leveraged for the chemical and manufacturing industry in our state and exported globally in its liquefied form (LNG). Oil and gas fever is burning again.
