There are a lot of legal questions surrounding the potential for shale gas drilling and exploration in North Carolina. A workshop is set for tomorrow to help bring lawyers up to speed.
The half-day workshop is to give North Carolina attorneys an introduction to natural gas drilling, mineral rights and leasing land to conduct drilling. Ted Feitshans is an extension associate professor at N-C State and will help conduct the workshop. He says property owners need help before negotiating with natural gas companies.
