Landowner Rights: Forced Pooling 101 Video

In this short video, Scott Marlow, RAFI Executive Director, reviews the history of forced pooling and how it applies to potential shale gas drilling in North Carolina. (See map of affected areas in North Carolina here.) As Scott explains, the major question that we must answer is whether the government has the right to compel a landowner to sell their resource in order to make it more profitable for someone else to sell their resource. We at RAFI hope that viewing this video helps you better understand the issue of forced pooling.
