Dropping Seismic Testing Equipment By Helicopter

For the past couple of days low flying helicopters have been dropping bundles and packages of seismic testing equipment in my woods, fields and pastures. The seismic testing is being done to map the Marcellus and Utica shale formations for possible deep horizontal wells that will hopefully produce shale gas.

 The packages and bundles are being released by air throughout all the neighboring farms.  I’m pretty sure that the packs contain cables and receivers necessary for the seismic testing because the blasting hasn’t started yet.
