Halcon Continues to Focus on Eastern Ohio Shale

From the Tribune Chronicle:
A company called Front Runner Seismic based in northern Pennsylvania has stationed about 25 workers in the area to conduct underground tests to determine where the gas and oil are. The workers have been going door-to-door asking about 11,000 landowners for permission to conduct the tests to determine the amount of minerals and gases in the ground.
A drilling company called Halcon hired Front Runner Seismic to do this advance work.
The workers have been in the area for about two months, staying in the Hubbard area in hotels and apartments. They will be here for several more months trying to get permission from landowners in a 140-square-mile area in Trumbull and Mahoning counties.
After that, surveying of the properties will begin and the testing is hoped to begin in the spring and summer.
