Comments Requested on Draft Rules
The Division of Oil and Gas Resources Management is requesting comments on draft well construction rules, which have been drafted pursuant to Senate Bill 165, effective June 30, 2011 [O.R.C 1509.17]. The draft rules encompass every aspect of well construction and will be applicable to all wells drilled within Ohio.
Comments to the draft well construction rules are to be submitted to minerals@dnr.state.oh.us by November 28, 2011.
Division staff will review all comments and make necessary changes by the end of the year. The formal rule filing with the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) is expected by early January 2012.

  1. As a landowner in Monroe County, OH, I am especially concerned about the amount of clean water used for fracturing wells. It seems responsible to drill a few wells and see how this impacts our farming community rather than go all out and regret the ruin later.
