Chief Improves 80 Miles of Pennsylvania Roads in 2011

In 2011, Chief Oil & Gas repaired or made improvements to nearly 80 miles of road across the four counties where it operates in Pennsylvania.

In 2011, Chief Oil & Gas repaired or made improvements to nearly 80 miles of road across the four counties where it operates in Pennsylvania: Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna, and Wyoming. While Chief's development of the Marcellus Shale natural gas in Pennsylvania provides important economic benefits to the local communities, Chief understands that its operations place additional pressure on infrastructure, particularly local roads.

"We are pleased to be able to support the communities where we live and work by providing these important infrastructure improvements to local roads," said Terry Bossert, Senior Vice President of Environmental and Regulatory Affairs for Chief Oil & Gas. "The safety of those who travel the roads in these counties is of paramount importance to us."

Working with several local Pennsylvania contractors, including Eastern Industries, Glenn O. Hawbaker and Tom Charles Construction, Chief spent more than $6.1 million on improvements to 30 roads last year. Over the last five years, Chief has spent more than $25 million total on local roads.

Road improvements on these local roads included widening, shoulder upgrades, spring thaw repairs and surface treatments.
