A Texas-based company is expanding a new initiative to get oil from Ohio’s Utica shale.
The EnerVest Ltd. companies have won approval from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to drill two wells near Uhrichsville in southern Tuscarawas County.
Those two wells, both in Clay Township, are part of a growing effort to tap what’s called volatile oil from the Utica shale, the company confirmed in an email.
