Several landowners in Allegheny County, Pa., are facing a lawsuit from EQT for allegedly blocking the company from performing shale natural gas drilling surveys on their properties. A recently passed law authorizes drillers to combine leased properties into a single unit for horizontal drilling. EQT continues to negotiate in "good faith" with landowners even though it does not need to under the law, said spokeswoman Linda Robertson.
