Letters to the editor on oil drilling guidelines, Heaney, visit to Kansas

I am not opposed to drilling for oil in Wichita, as evidenced by my vote at a District 4 advisory board meeting. I am opposed to drilling being done under the current standards. I advocate for a 90-day moratorium so these codes and guidelines can be updated to reflect current technology. When the last well was drilled in Wichita, the technology and materials did not exist to do directional drilling, as can be done today.
