Gas Lease Illegal in Thickly Settled Part of Municipality

TEXLG. CODE ANN. § 253.005 :TexasStatutes – Section 253.005: LEASE OF OIL, GAS, ORMINERALLAND

“(c) A well may not be drilled in the thickly settled part of the municipality…..”

 ——————————————

“…..or within 200 feet of a private residence.”

I interpret the “or” statement to provide protection to those NOT in thickly settled parts of the municipality. Please comment if you agree. 

Now Att’y Gen Greg Abbott in 2006 addressed a conflict with this rule ….

S U M M A R Y

With regard to a municipality’s lease of its mineral property, subchapter A of chapter 71 of the Natural Resources Code irreconcilably conflicts with section 253.005 of the Local Government Code, and as a result, section 253.005, being the more specific enactment, prevails.

Very truly yours,

Abbott signatureGREG ABBOTT
Attorney General of Texas

SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHY THEY ARE DRILLING IN OUR CITIES? WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT THIS? WE NEED A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT…folks help me find a lawyer, thanks.

Also send me your contact info if you want to participate in this class action lawsuit…funny thing is for folks like me that signed our minerals away and want a do-over now that we are informed may be part of who will be sued…ok so sue me!

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
