Once again, we have federal agencies looking into fraud and contamination caused by Range Resources in the recent court case filed by several families in PA. I wonder who was the “orchestrator” of this attempt to defame Range Resources and sully their excellent reputation as a first class driller. I wonder who will be the first to get a subpoena to turn over all their correspondence.
Here’s what Pitzarella had to say:
“Hopefully these fact-based reports will provide the residents with greater peace of mind,” Mr. Pitzarella wrote. “There may very well be some red flags with air or water, which is not uncommon in Western Pennsylvania, but that doesn’t mean it has anything to do with responsible gas development.”
I read the pleading in the case and I’m pretty sure Range withheld some of those “fact-based reports” from the residents, hence the fraud charge.
Pitz is right about one thing: the “red flags” have nothing to do with “responsible gas development.” (Is responsible gas development like the Yeti?)
It is good to know that Karma is watching and willing to work overtime.

That’s the thing about public relations people-they always have something to say. Mouthpieces like Pitz seem to think we buy his b.s., too. The only thing worse than the Company PR guy is the Company PR guy with zero experience in oil and gas.
Some real lame excuses & comments have come from PR types at O&G companies over the years. One pipeline that had killed 14 people in 4 different accidents over 10 years had the gall to say: “Our safety record is not so bad”.
