Prior to launching the Web site, the BSEEC members conducted a nationwide search for an executive director and ultimately hired Ed Ireland.
We also want the public to know that the members of the BSEEC are committed to safeguarding the environment and being good neighbors.
According to Ireland, the Web site is just the first step in making the BSEEC an urban drilling community resource.
The Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce is working collaboratively with the BSEEC on this effort.
Chamber President Bill Thornton commented, "The Chamber is excited about working with the BSEEC on this public education initiative.
While the BSEEC provides community information, it also provides a forum for Barnett Shale operators to share best practices when dealing with community and each other on key issues.
In addition to Crosstex, BSEEC
members are: Chesapeake Energy, Dale Resources, Devon Energy, EnCana, EOG Resources, Forest Oil, XTO Energy, Axia Land Services and Quicksilver Resources.
