Here in Dallas The city’s Gas Drilling Task Force never came to a consensus on the potential impact of allowing fracking within city limits, ultimately splintering into two opposing camps. But they did spend the better part of a year researching and debating the issue’s many facets and coming to no conclusion.
XTO Energy Inc. shelved its plans to drill for natural gas in Dallas last week, saying the city’s indecision on how to regulate urban drilling has made it impossible to move forward and I am telling you for a fact – continued rulemaking delays add to an already bleak picture for fracking in the city.
You would think a city the size of Dallas in a State like Texas where energy runs in our blood a decision could be made that is for the betterment of the state and its residents. But I guess not.
