An April 2, 2018, decision by the Pennsylvania Superior Court in the case Briggs v. Southwestern Energy Production called into question the longstanding principle of rule of capture when it comes to hydraulic fracturing. An article about the decision can be found in the April 2018 issue of The PIOGA Press (page 12).

The outcome of the case is of utmost interest to our industry. Southwestern has requested a rehearing before the full Superior Court, and PIOGA is among the groups filing amicus briefs in support of the Southwestern application. You can download rehearing and amicus filings here.
