1 COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION OFFICE OF OIL AND GAS MANAGEMENT GENERAL INFORMATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING AN APPLICATION FOR A PERMIT TO DRILL OR ALTER AN OIL OR GAS WELL Form 8000-PM-OOGM0001 These permit application forms are used to apply to Pennsylvania s Department of Environmental Protection (Department), for approval to drill a new oil or gas well, or to redrill, alter or deepen an existing well, renew a permit about to expire, and to repermit an expired well permit. Section 3211(a) of 58 Pa.C.S (2012 Oil and Gas Act) requires operators to obtain a well permit prior to drilling or altering a well. 58 Pa.C.S. 3211(a). Additionally, pursuant to Section 3259 of the 2012 Oil and Gas Act, it is unlawful to drill, alter, operate or utilize an oil or gas well without a permit or registration from the Department as required by the 2012 Oil and Gas Act or in violation of rules and regulations adopted under the 2012 Oil and Gas Act, orders of the Department or a term or condition of a permit issued by the Department. 58 Pa.C.S The forms required for a complete application are dependent upon the type of well permit being applied for. The forms are divided first by: a) Conventional wells Wells that are not unconventional wells, irrespective of technology or design. The term includes wells drilled to produce oil, wells drilled to produce natural gas from formations other than shale formations, wells drilled to produce natural gas from shale formations located above the base of the Elk Group or its stratigraphic equivalent, wells drilled to produce natural gas from shale formations located below the base of the Elk Group where natural gas can be produced at economic flow rates or in economic volumes without the use of vertical or nonvertical well bores stimulated by hydraulic fracture treatments or multilateral well bores or other techniques to expose more of the formation to the well bore, and wells drilled for collateral purposes, such as monitoring, geologic logging, secondary and tertiary recovery or disposal injection. b) Unconventional wells which target unconventional formations defined as a geological shale formation existing below the base of the Elk Sandstone or its geologic equivalent stratigraphic interval where natural gas generally cannot be produced at economic flow rates or in economic volumes except by vertical or horizontal well bores stimulated by hydraulic fracture treatments or by using multilateral well bores or other techniques to expose more of the formation to the well bore. c) Wells in coal areas- If the proposed well is on a coal area or a coal bed methane well, complete and attach the coal module. If the proposed well is in a non- coal area attach a. justification as to why the area is considered a non-coal area. The coal module would not be required for a proposed well in a non-coal area. The a, b, or c suffix applicable to the above groupings will be shown in the upper left of the form after the 001 numbering of the form. Ex: 8000-PM-OOGM0001a. Several additional forms may be required with your application, depending on the type of well, bond agreement, or variances requested. The forms typically provide entry for one piece of information. If you have situations that require additional information for multiple entries, attach additional sheets with the Operator, farm name, well identified at the top of each additional sheet and identify the addition informational field/data being provided. A permit fee is also required. Please read through this application form and instructions to determine which additional forms and supporting documents you need. The forms for permits and approvals are available to the public from DEP s website, at Click on the phrase Permits, Licensing and Certification at the left of the screen, select Program-Specific Permit/Authorization Packages then click on the Oil and Gas Management folder. If completing forms manually, please type or print legibly. Unreadable information will delay processing, and may result in your application being returned to you. Information required on these forms is mostly self-explanatory. are written only for those items that need some explanation. If an item is not relevant to your application, enter NA in that space rather than leave the space blank. Before generating waste, oil and gas well operators are required by 25 Pa.Code (relating to control and disposal plans) to prepare and implement a control and disposal plan under 25 Pa.Code (relating to activities utilizing pollutants). The plan must address the control and disposal of residual waste, drill cuttings and fluids, including tophole water, brines, drilling fluids, additives, drilling muds, stimulation fluids, well servicing fluids, oil, production fluids and drill cuttings from the drilling, alteration, production, plugging or other activity associated with oil and gas wells. Operators can meet these regulatory requirements and the requirements under 25 Pa.Code

2 and 25 Pa. Code by developing and implementing a site specific Preparedness, Prevention and Contingency (PPC) Plan. Copies of the plan(s) must: (1) Be provided to the Department upon request; (2) Be available at the well site during earth disturbance activities, drilling, completion and alteration activities for use by those involved in those activities and for review by DEP; and (3) Include a list of emergency contact phone numbers for the area in which the well site is located. The emergency contact phone numbers must be prominently displayed at the well site during drilling, completion or alteration activities. See 25 Pa. Code 102.5(l). Pursuant to Section 3221 of the 2012 Oil and Gas Act, a well operator may request permission to use a method or material other than those required by the 2012 Oil and Gas Act and applicable regulations for casing. Plugging or equipping a well, please submit alternate methods or materials requests along with your permit application. A checklist is included for this application form for your use. Please use it to check that your application is complete before you submit the application to DEP. Incomplete, illegible, or inadequate applications may be returned. You do not need to submit the checklist with your application. If you do not have an oil and gas well bond in effect now, you should complete the bond application process before submitting your application for an oil or gas well permit. Your well permit will not be issued until your bond is approved. If your bond is already in effect, you must identify the bond agreement number on your permit application form that serves as the Exhibit A (Form 8000-FM-OOGMO0042), which identifies this well is to be added to your bond. When your bond is accepted by the Department, you should record the bond agreement number provided by DEP. If you have multiple bonds, you should make sure the amount of coverage available for that particular bond is sufficient to allow the well permit being applied for can be covered by the specific bond. If you have any questions about this application, or need more information or additional forms, contact the appropriate DEP regional oil and gas office. Refer to the regional permitting office map at the end of these instructions. Note that for purposes of submitting applications for well permits, your application is to be submitted to the applicable well permitting office that covers the county in which the well will be located. There are two well permitting offices as shown on the permitting office map.

Threatened and Endangered Species Proof of consultation with Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program s (PNHP) Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory (PNDI) is required. To ensure compliance with federal and state law, submit a Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory Project Environmental Review Receipt (PNDI receipt). If the PNDI receipt identifies a conflict with threatened or endangered species, it will provide an explanation of the potential impact(s) and instructions on how to resolve the potential impact. See Technical Guidance Document No , Policy for Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory (PNDI) Coordination During Permit Review and Evaluation. Note for renewals: a new PNDI run must be done if the prior run submitted with the previously approved application is not within a year of the renewal application. Also, if re-run of PNDI has a different outcome, the conditions of the prior application have changed and the applicant must submit a new application (instead of renewal) with an updated clearance letter from controlling agency(ies). This may impact outcome of Special Conditions so PNDI change would not be a renewal. Note that application has changed but can still apply to originally assigned API No. for the well. PERMIT TYPE Please check the appropriate descriptions of the activity to be permitted and the type of well. Application is for: Drill New Well: A location where no well has ever been drilled. Renew Active Permit: Submitting application to renew permit at least 15 days prior to expiration of the permit. Provide prior API No. Repermit expired permit: Application for a permit to drill a well at a location that was previously issued a permit that has since expired. Provide prior API No. Deepen, Re-drill, or Alter an Existing Well: Provide prior API No. and check the appropriate box. Deepen: To drill an existing well below the original total depth. Re-drill: To drill out a plugged well for the purpose of putting a plugged and abandoned well into production. Alter: Any operation that changes the use or purpose of a well, for example to change an oil production well to an injection well. (Also check the appropriate box under TYPE OF WELL it will become), or drills out the well bore, or, depending on the work, it may include removing, repairing or changing the casing. (Remove, repair, or change casing means to alter the casing by changing the depth or diameter of the well, or to remove, repair or change casings in coal areas. Replacement of casing of the same diameter to the same depth is not by itself an alteration. In coal areas, changing or repairing the production casing where it is also the coal protective casing is an alteration requiring a permit. Work on the production string that affects the coal protective casing is an alteration, which requires a permit. If the application is for something other than above, check Other and write in the intended purpose

5 TYPE OF WELL Mark the box indicating the type of well that will result from the intended activity. Check OTHER for any type not listed, and fill in a very brief description. CONFIGURATION Check the major manner of how the wellbore(s) applied for under this application will be constructed. If there is a vertical pilot component of the well but the pilot is primarily to build the horizontal portion of the well, check horizontal. If the application is only for a vertical wellbore, check vertical. If the wellbore is intended to be deviated from vertical by more than 3 degrees, check deviated. If there will be multiple wellbores/laterals drilled horizontally check both horizontal and multiple laterals checkboxes. APPLICATION FEE Check the box for the applicable permit application fee. Associated well types are shown in parentheses. The whole fee must accompany the permit application. The amount depends on the type of well being permitted and, for conventional wells, the length of wellbore to be drilled under this permit. The application fee consists of a permit fee and surcharges where applicable which are paid into the orphaned and abandoned well plugging funds. Application fees are not refundable. The specific amount is calculated as follows: Gas Well [includes gas storage wells, combination gas & oil wells (in non-coal areas only), and coalbed methane wells]: Application Permit fee + $250 (Surcharges). If coal bed methane is checked and you intend to drill a coal bed methane well or construct an access road associated with a coal bed methane well you are required to provide written notification to the surface owner in the manner prescribed in section 201(B) of the act of December 19, 1984 (P.L No. 223), known as the Oil and Gas Act. The notification shall include the following statement (on DEP Form 5500-FM-OG0053). Oil Well (including injection - recovery wells): Application Permit fee + $150 (Surcharges) Home Use Gas/Oil Well: $200 (permit fee) + $250/$150 (surcharges) Injection - Disposal Well: Application Permit fee (Permit fee) + $50 (Surcharge) Redrill / Drill Deeper: Application Permit fee + $0 (Surcharge) Alteration: $100 (Permit fee) + $0 (Surcharge) = $100 (Application Fee) Change in Use (change the use of an existing well): $100 (Permit fee) + $0 (Surcharge) = $100 (Application Fee) UNCONVENTIONAL WELLS The permit fee for unconventional wells must include the new permit application fee in addition to the surcharge fees for abandoned and orphan wells. The new permit fee is as follows: $4,200 for a vertical unconventional well. $5,000 for a nonvertical unconventional well. If the well is unconventional, check the applicable well status box, either vertical or nonvertical. Enter the Total Application Fee amount from the last line below on the Application Form. If the application is for a unconventional well and the applicant proposes to use water from water sources within the Commonwealth for well fracing activities, the applicant must do so in accordance with a Water Management Plan approved by the Department. Please refer to document number 5500-PM-OG0087 for an example format of a water management plan.

6 CONVENTIONAL WELLS The permit fee for a conventional well must include the following permit application fee in addition to the surcharge fees for abandoned and orphan wells. The conventional well permit fee is as follows: Total Wellbore Application Fee Length in Feet 0 To 2,000 $250 2,001 To 2,500 $300 2,501 To 3,000 $350 3,001 To 3,500 $400 3,501 To 4,000 $450 4,001 To 4,500 $500 4,501 To 5,000 $550 5,001 To 5,500 $650 5,501 To 6,000 $750 6,001 To 6,500 $850 6,501 To 7,000 $950 7,001 To 7,500 $1,050 7,501 To 8,000 $1,150 8,001 To 8,500 $1,250 8,501 To 9,000 $1,350 9,001 To 9,500 $1,450 9,501 To 10,000 $1,550 10,001 To 10,500 $1,650 10,501 To 11,000 $1,750 11,001 To 11,500 $1,850 11,501 To 12,000 $1,950 An applicant for a conventional well exceeding 12,000 feet in total well bore length shall pay a permit application fee of $1,950 + $100 for every 500 feet the well bore extends over 12,000 feet. Fees shall be rounded to the 500-foot interval. The orphan well surcharge is $200 for a gas well or $100 for an oil well. The abandon well surcharge is $50. These surcharges are in addition to the permit application fees above. Total permit application costs for conventional wells must equal three (3) components: permit application fee + $50 abandoned well surcharge + $200 or $100 orphan well surcharge. The surcharges as established by the Oil and Gas Act fund the Orphan and Abandoned Well Plugging Program. Conventional Permit Fee $ Orphan well surcharge $200.00/$ Abandoned well surcharge $50.00 Total application fee $ You can also use the on-line Well Permit Fee Calculator that can be found for your use at the bottom of the DEP Oil and Gas Industry Resources web page at: Make your check or money order payable to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. For your convenience, you may pay with one check for all applications submitted at the same time. Attach the payment to the front of the application form. Personal and business checks are acceptable. Oil and Gas Conservation Law A non-conservation well is a well not subject to the Oil and Gas Conservation Law, 58 PS 401 et seq. This law applies to any well (drilled after July 25, 1961) drilled deeper than 3800 feet which also penetrates the Onondaga horizon. All development wells in a pool discovered by a conservation well are also subject to the law, regardless of completion depth or horizons penetrated. No gas storage well is subject to this law. Deepening an old well as described above would subject it to this law. If in doubt, please call DEP s district oil and gas office to find out. The Oil and Gas Conservation Law also established spacing criteria for wells subject to the law. Some areas of the state are covered by specific spacing orders that were issued by the department; elsewhere spacing regulations apply. Maps of areas covered by spacing orders are filed in the office of the Recorder of Deeds in the respective county, as well as the DEP office for the region. For details, see 58 PS 401 et seq.; 25 Pa. Code 79. The - 6 -

7 COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION OFFICE OF OIL AND GAS MANAGEMENT Pennsylvania Code of Regulations is available from the website Environmental Protection is Title 25. For Chapter 79, click on this hyperlink: 25 Pa. Code Chapter 79. Conservation wells, to be drilled in areas that are not covered by spacing orders, may be located no closer than 330 feet from the outside boundary of the lease or unit. Coal Mining & Coal Resources Certain regulations on casing, spacing, and resource coordination apply to a well that will penetrate a coal seam workable by underground mining methods. As defined in 25 Pa. Code 78.1, a coal area is an area that is underlain by a workable coal seam. For a proposed location in a county with known mineable coal seams, when declaring that a proposed well location is not in a coal area, the applicant must provide written justification, supporting documentation, and publication references, if available, to support the non-coal declaration. Acceptable information could be, for example, coal operator s bore hole logs, exploratory core hole logs, etc. For a location in a county where there are no known workable coal seams, you need not provide support for a non-coal area declaration. See DEP policy guidance for detailed criteria defining a workable coal seam, as well as a list of acceptable published references. For advice or further explanation, contact the oil and gas permits chief at one of the DEP regional offices. The distance restriction for a gas well which is not subject to the Oil and Gas Conservation Law, but which penetrates a workable coal seam is at least 1,000 feet from all other existing wells unless the wells are grouped on a well pad in a well cluster of no more than 5,000 ft. 2 with the center of the well bore of the nearest well (not part of this cluster) is not less than 2,000 ft.to the center of the wellbore of the nearest well in the cluster. Any request for exception from these distance requirements must be specific, in writing, and accompany this application. A request for exception from 1000-foot well-spacing must be signed by all coal owners, as listed on the record of notification page (page 2) of the application form Coal Module 8000-FM-OOGM0001(c). See 58 P.S If the proposed well location is within the permitted boundaries of an underground coal mine, or within 1,000 feet of a boundary of the mining permit area, the applicant is required to notify those coal owners and operator. Notification must be by certified mail, with a copy of this permit application, including the well location plat on form 8000-PM-OOGM0002. See Section 3211(b)(2) of the 2012 Oil and Gas Act. The coal owners and operators may give written approval of the proposed well location by signing page 2 of the permit application Coal Module 8000-FM-OOGM0001(c). If you are not sure whether your proposed well s location falls within the coordination area of an underground coal mine as described above, please contact DEP s mine permits office at: California District Office 25 Technology Drive California Technology Park Coal Center, PA Phone: Fax: Gas Storage Fields If the proposed well location is within a gas storage area, or within the reservoir protective area, the applicant must notify the gas storage operator of this well permit application, and submit proof of notification with this application. Notification must be by certified mail with a copy of this permit application, including the well location plat on form 8000-PM-OOGM0002. The protective area is nominally 2,000 feet from the boundary of the storage area unless otherwise designated by the Department. However, if the proposed well is an unconventional well, notification is required if your proposed well is within 3,000 feet from the boundary of the storage area. Landfills If the proposed well location is within the perimeter of an abandoned, active, or permitted landfill, draw and label the approximate perimeter of the landfill on the well location plat. Identify the owner/operator of the landfill, if known. Location of Disturbed Area If the limit of the disturbed area of the well site is within 100 feet from a wetland larger than one acre, or any blue lined spring, stream or body of water identified on the most current 7 ½-minute USGS topographic map, submit a site specific Erosion and Sedimentation Control Plan (unless an Erosion and Sedimentation Control General Permit is otherwise required for the well site), and portions of the well site Pollution Prevention Control Plan that demonstrates - 7 -

8 there will be adequate protection of the Water of the Commonwealth. In the case of an unconventional well, this demonstration should include those relevant portions of the well site Emergency Response Plan and Site Containment Plan. If the well site, access road, or pipeline encroaches on a watercourse, body of water, or wetland, the applicant may also be required to obtain a permit for water obstructions and encroachments. A conventional well may not be drilled within 200 feet of an existing building or water well, without the prior written consent of the owner. The distances for a unconventional well require the vertical wellbore to be 500 feet from a building or water well and may not be drilled less than 1,000 feet from any existing water well, surface water intake, reservoir or other water supply extraction point utilized by a water purveyor. Written consent may be in the form of the owners signatures in the appropriate spaces on page 3 of the permit application form, or in a letter or form created by the applicant or consenter. If the owners of the water well, building or water purveyor do not consent in writing, the applicant may submit a Request for Variance from Distance Restriction (form 8000-FM-OOGM0058) to the department detailing the additional terms and conditions to be in place to ensure safety and protection persons and property. Public Resources The Department has constitutional and statutory obligations to protect public resources. For example, Section 3215(c) of the 2012 Oil and Gas Act requires the Department to consider the impact of the proposed well on various public resources when making a determination on a well permit 58 Pa. C.S (c). 58 Pa. C.S. 3215(c), see also 58 Pa. C. S and 3211(e.1)(1). Additionally, the Department shares responsibility for the protection of natural resources with other Commonwealth agencies and municipalities. Public resources include publicly owned parks, forests, game lands, designated wildlife areas, national or state scenic rivers, national natural landmarks, habitats of rare and endangered flora or fauna (threatened and endangered species), other critical communities (species of special concern), and historical and archaeological sites listed on the federal or state list of historic places, and water wells, surface water intakes, reservoirs or other water supply extraction points used by a water purveyor within 1000 feet of a proposed unconventional well. To ensure compliance with applicable constitutional and statutory obligations, if you answer Yes to question 6, you must also complete and submit the form Coordination of a Well Location with Public Resources (form 5500-PM- OG0076). See the instructions for that form for more details. For threatened and endangered species, please see Threatened and Endangered Species section above. For species of special concern, well permit applicant must identify the habitats of special concern species where the proposed well site or access road will be located and describe any means proposed to be taken to avoid or mitigate impacts to special concern species. The applicant must provide documentation that it has consulted with the Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program s (PNHP) Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory (PNDI) by submitting a Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory Project Environmental Review Receipt (PNDI receipt). Applicants may use the same PNDI receipt run for threatened and endangered species. If the PNDI receipt identifies a conflict with a special concern species, please refer to Technical Guidance Document No , Policy for Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory (PNDI) Coordination During Permit Review and Evaluation, Appendix C. Special Protection Watersheds If the proposed well location is in a High Quality or Exceptional Value watershed, check the Yes box and enter the name of the special protection stream. Maps and other information on special protection waters are available on DEP s website at: For listings of specific streams and segments, consult 25 Pa.
