Contract for Exploratory Oil Drilling in Cumberland-Marlboro Basin

Environmental regulators this week issued the state's first contracts to test sites in North Carolina for oil and gas resources ahead of any potential drilling.

The two contracts with Sanford-based Patterson Exploration Services will cost the state $236,500 for core sampling in several locations in Stokes, Scotland, Hoke and Cumberland counties.

Now wait just a fracking minute...

The NC Mining and Energy Commission is not permitted to issue permits, since their very existence is under question by the courts. Like a stopped clock, McCrory (accidentally) got this one right by challenging the NCGA. Not that his choices would have been any less unethical, but we takes our victories where we can get 'em.
