Natural-gas agreement adds more than $2 million to Game Fund.
The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners approved a five-year, non-surface-use agreement with Greylock Production LLC, to develop natural gas under 724 acres of State Game Lands 223 in Whiteley Township, Greene County.
The energy-development agreement is expected to result in an approximate $2.15 million bonus payment to the agency’s Game Fund, or into an interest-bearing escrow account to be used for the future purchase of wildlife habitat.
Oil and gas development under the agreement will be regulated by the Commonwealth’s oil and gas regulations and the agency’s Standard Non-Surface Use Oil and Gas Cooperative Agreement.
