The Double Oak Planning and Zoning Commission and the Town Council will hold a joint public hearing this Monday to consider a request by Williams Production to enlarge an existing pad site and drill up to 15 gas wells near FM 407 and Simmons Road, just south of Lantana.
Preliminary plans for the Meece/Troutt pad site originally included compression facilities, gas lift and plans for up to 22 gas wells. Williams recently submitted amended plans to the town that removed the compression facilities and reduced the number of gas wells to 15.
The drilling site was previously operated by Red Oak Gas Operating Company, LP.
The joint public hearing will be held this Monday, August 16, at 6:00 p.m. at Crossroads Bible Church located at 8101 FM 407 in Double Oak.
