Energy from unconventional natural gas has among the lowest surface impacts on a per Btu basis of any form of energy. With horizontal multi-well pad development, Range is able to develop one to two square miles of subsurface while temporarily impacting less than one percent of the surface.
We seek to minimize surface impacts and follow strict state and local guidelines on how best to do so. In the past, Range has partnered with groups like the Nature Conservancy that has specific staff focused on energy development
In Oklahoma it was possible for Range to construct utility corridors to connect well pad locations with a single pathway for pipelines, water transfer and power lines. This effort has dramatically reduced surface impacts and helped to lower costs through increased efficiencies.
Range has partnered with multiple other wildlife and conservation organizations to enhance the areas near our operations. The Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) honored Range with the Corporate Conservation Award for the Cross Creek County Park habitat project.
