Please acknowledge them in any use. The photographs are of
the Fortuna Energy site (tract 587) in the Tioga State Forest,
Ward Township, Tioga County. Six to eight horizontal wells
will be drilled and fracked at each well pad; each fracking will
involve over 3 million gallons of water . These wells will
be re-fracked as needed when production diminishes to extend the
life of the wells. Fortuna Energy has a SRBC water
withdrawal permit for up to .999 mg/d. The water source is
northwest of the site. A gas pipeline will be constructed
from the compressor to transport the gas to market; it will
require a 40 foot right-of-way. Fortuna Energy is now
known as Talisman Energy, Inc. of Calgary, Alberta, Canada (www.talisman-energy.com).
