A Pennsylvania driller has been granted a preliminary injunction to keep an anti-fracking activist from trespassing on its leased property and roads.
Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. of Houston, Texas, filed the petition for injunction in Susquehanna County Court against natural gas opponent Vera Scroggins.
A hearing date for a permanent injunction has not yet been set by the court.
Cabot spokesman George Stark said, “Cabot has intercepted Mrs. Scroggins more than once and asked her to stop trespassing on our sites.”
In court documents filed last week, Cabot maintained that Scroggins has repeatedly trespassed onto several of the gas company’s leased and owned properties, exposing herself, the company and workers on the sites to potential safety hazards.
