Geokinetics: Seismic testing for gas well development underway in Monroeville

Seismic testing, a step related to natural gas well development, has begun in Monroeville.

During a council meeting on Tuesday, municipal Manager Tim Little said he met with Monroeville-based Huntley & Huntley earlier this year. During that meeting, the oil and gas company said it hired two Texas-based companies, Geokinetics and Cougar Land Services, to conduct seismic surveys in Monroeville.

“All they’re doing is exploring for gas. This does not mean that they will be, or there will be, drilling coming in, big drills and booms coming onto people’s property,” Little said.

The process expected to last through summer is related to a 200 square-mile radius of gas exploration that spans several municipalities in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties, said Huntley & Huntley spokesman Dave Mashek.
