NEW BERLIN – Landowners wanting to learn more about pipeline easements may do so at a meeting of the Central New York Landowners Coalition tomorrow.
The coalition will sponsor two speakers proficient on the subject of easements from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Unadilla Valley Central School’s auditorium in New Berlin. The school is located on 4238 State Highway 8.
Formed in the spring last year, the land group represents nearly 140,000 acres in Chenango, Otsego and Madison and Delaware counties. It is one of several formed in the region in response to natural gas company interest in the abundant layers of the energy that lies within the Marcellus, Herkimer and Utica formations under the subsurface.
Oxford Land Group president Bryant LaTourette is one of the two speakers. He will speak on Norse Energy Inc.’s proposed transportation pipeline, where it is, where it is going, its importance in the region and the dangers of signing right-of-ways.
