TERMS & CONDITIONS
Monitoring the environmental impact at all levels of exploration and production is a priority for Mid East Oil and its affiliated companies.
> Environmental Policy
We work closely with the United States Forest Service, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP), the Army Corps of Engineers and local agencies within the County conservation district offices when designing the construction of our projects.
The PADEP has developed "Best Management Practices" (BMPs) for construction activities within the State of Pennsylvania. We incorporate those BMPs into our operations, constructing access roads and production sites efficiently with longevity and environmental quality in mind.
Any temporarily disturbed areas are mulched and seeded to restore the environment. Such considerations include road layout and construction, which are carefully considered and planned to keep grades low, and we use existing roads wherever possible to lessen the footprint of new construction.
These practices help reduce and manage storm water runoff. We employ additional procedures to further protect surface waters from sediment. We also tend to curtail construction operations during times of high rainfall or snow melt.
Leaving the environment in a healthy and stable state is Mid East Oil's main priority; we therefore make every effort to reduce our environmental footprint in those areas that we are active in.
