Carroll County Leads the Way in September Permitting

From Farm & Dairy:
The number of wells waiting to be fracked outnumbered the number of permits issued by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources during September.
There are 57 Utica shale wells in Ohio waiting to be fracked, according to the most current report.
Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a process commonly used in oil development. It is a technique that cracks open rock layers to free natural gas.
There were a total of 23 permits issued during September by the ODNR.

Carroll County

Carroll County remains a hot spot of activity, leading the number of Utica shale permits issued again.
There were five permits issued for Carroll Count sites in September: four in Loudon Township on what appears to be separate properties, and one in Harrison Township. All of the permits were issued to Chesapeake Exploration, LLC.
