Belmont County Was the Focus of New Permitting Last Week

The weekly update on horizontal drilling permits is available from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

Only 10 new permits were issued.  Exactly half of those were for Belmont County wells, with 5 permits issued to Hess Ohio Developments LLC for Warren Township drilling.  2 permits were issued for Carroll County.  Rounding out the activity was Morgan County, which saw its first 3 horizontal drilling permits issued.
