Randy M. Awdish Quoted in Traverse City Record-Eagle on Fracking Concerns in Northern Michigan


Pepper Hamilton attorney Randy M. Awdish was quoted in the August 2, 2012 issue of Traverse City Record-Eagle in the article “Fracking Raises Concerns.” This article discusses the recent upswing in fracking permit applications in northern Michigan and the economic and environmental impact.

Mr. Awdish, a real estate lawyer, doubts the potential for a natural gas drilling boom in Michigan due to the modest success in prior exploration in the region, the low price of natural gas and the high cost of drilling infrastructure. "I really don't think there's going to be too much activity based on natural gas prices and the success (of drilling) in other parts of country," he said.
