MEC Compulsory Pooling Study Group Meetings


In July of 2012, the North Carolina legislature ratified the Clean Energy and Economic Security Act.  Also known as Senate Bill 820 (Session Law 2012-143) this law, charged the North Carolina Mining and Energy Commission with developing a “modern regulatory program” for the management of oil and gas exploration and development activities in North Carolina, including the use of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing.
