Temporary restraining order filed to stop Northshore fracking by wdsu.com, May 15, 2014
ST. TAMMANY PARISH, La. —Attorneys for the group Concerned Citizens of St. Tammany Parish have filed documents in federal court to stop Helis Oil & Gas from drilling between Mandeville and Abita Springs. Helis proposed to drill down 13,000 feet to obtain data and samples and to analyze the findings over three to four months to determine whether further activities are economically feasible. If the findings indicate viable quantities of oil are present, Helis said it will then revert back to their original plan to conduct horizontal drilling and utilize the hydraulic fracturing method to extract oil from the project. If the findings indicate otherwise, the company said it will plug the well and abandon the project.
