Two Northern Pennsylvania lawmakers recently joined others in calling for keeping regulation of conventional drilling in the commonwealth separate from the high-profile unconventional drilling for natural gas that has swept into the state in recent years, according to a news release.

The Pennsylvania Independent Petroleum Producers hosted the event at Venango County’s Drake Well Museum, which celebrates the birth of the modern petroleum industry about 150 years ago.

Rep. Martin Causer, R-Cameron, McKean and Potter counties, and Rep. Kathy Rapp, R-Forest, McKean and Warren counties, called on government to stay out of the way and not regulate out of business conventional drilling.

Backers say it can be done more quickly and requires less ground area, water and truck traffic than unconventional drilling, according to the release.
