Gas WEll Drilling in Residential Neighborhoods in Fort Worth-You'd Think Only the Havenots are unhappy

The problem with articles like these, that present unhappy people who don't want oil and gas rigs right next to their home, or their school, or on their golf course, is that the implication is that ONLY people who aren't getting royalties are against it.

Once confined to the prairies, oil and gas exploration has gone urban. In Fort Worth, Los Angeles and other densely populated places, that sometimes pits neighbor against neighbor, forcing them to choose between preserving a neighborhood or cashing the monthly royalty checks a gas or oil well provides.

In some cases, entire neighborhoods are organizing to keep the wells out.

They are worried about the drilling and extraction noise — which can sound like a jet engine — heavy truck traffic, decreased property values and explosions. An XTO Energy worker was killed last year in a gas well explosion in nearby Forest Hill.

"Believe me, if people weren't getting money, nobody would want this," said Don Young, who founded Fort Worth Citizens Against Neighborhood Drilling Ordinance.
