Many Wells Waiting to Be Fracked in Ohio, Including 12 in Carroll County

A long line of wells are waiting to be fracked in Ohio
From Farm & Dairy:
While permits are still being sought in the Utica shale region, the real story may be in the number of wells waiting to be fracked.
Hydraulic fracturing is a process commonly used in oil development. It is a technique that cracks open rock layers to free natural gas.
According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (link takes you to PDF and not a website)Utica Shale activity report, there are at least 40 wells waiting to be fracked in Ohio. There are 12 sites in Carroll County and 10 in Columbiana County waiting in line to be fracked. In addition, seven wells in Jefferson County are waiting, two each in Harrison, Noble, Portage and Stark counties, along with one each in Medina, Monroe and Tuscarawas counties.
