Oil & Gas Company Pays for Road Repairs in Johnson County, Texas-Well, WHY SHOULDN'T THEY?

23 October 2006 at 10:22:40 AM

Uh. If a company is damaging county roads because of huge equipment and trucks going back and forth on them, and then, after being ASKED to pony up some money, does so, does that company need to be sucked up to as if they were doing people a FAVOR and being generous?

I really hate the tone of this article, which sounds beggingly grateful that, after being ASKED, EOG Resources (also known as ENRON Oil and Gas) came up with money to repair roads... that THEY damaged.

A gas and oil exploration company paid $246,753.35 to Johnson County on Thursday for road repairs in Precinct 3, which covers all or parts of Alvarado, Briaroaks, Burleson, Cross Timber, Mansfield, Venus and Lillian.

“EOG [Resources] likes to be a good corporate neighbor, and we want good roads in Johnson County for the community and our employees,” said David Frye, division land manager of the company’s Fort Worth office.

County Judge Roger Harmon said the commissioners court requested the assistance. Gas companies, busy at work in the Barnett Shale, much of which lies under the county, have heavy water and equipment trucks using county roads year-round, causing increased wear and tear on the roads.

“I’m happy they did that; it’s a good gesture on their part,” Harmon said. “All these gas companies and their sub-contractors have been doing a lot of damage to our county roads and we don’t feel it’s the responsibility of our taxpayers to get the bill for fixing those roads.”

Right. So why should there be some kind of false gratitude to EOG for doing WHAT THEY OUGHT TO?

Incidentally, I noticed a lawsuit notice in this last Thursday's Glen Rose reporter of a lawsuit by EOG to the heirs of R L Hay. Looks to me that EOG can't find the people who have mineral rights on a certain piece of property, are filling a lawsuit and EOG will HAVE THOSE RIGHTS if R L Hay doesn't answer.
