The 5th Annual AIPG Conference on Marcellus, Utica, and Point Pleasant Shale: Energy Development and Enhancement by Hydraulic Fracturing was held on April 16 and 17, 2014 at the Holiday Inn in downtown Columbus, Ohio. The meeting was a great success thanks to Cathy Duran and Wendy Davidson from AIPG National Headquarters in Thornton Colorado. All that attended the meeting left with a better understanding of how society in general can benefit from shale gas development in Ohio. The keynote speaker was Peter MacKenzie, CPG. Peter is VP of Operations, with the Ohio Oil and Gas Association (OOGA). He spoke to the group on Ohio’s Energy Renaissance. Click on the title for more information!

<p>Please read the article linked below from the Akron Beacon Journal. The article discussed the website www.fracfocus.org, which is managed by the Ground Water Protection Council and the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission and offers the public a look at how much water drillers in Ohio and other states are using for hydraulic fracturing.</p>

<p>Just last week Crabtree Well Drilling was drilling a new water well for a new home construction in Clark County, Bethel Township when they encountered a gas pocket in the Ordovician limestone and shale. The drill bit had penetrated below 300 feet in depth when the gas pocket in the subsurface was encountered. This is an unusual event since there is no known oil and gas fields documented along the Cincinnati arch. Also, there are no known gas pipelines in the area. As a result, the origin of the fire was due to natural causes. Crabtree Drilling lost a rig valued at $750, 000. View the full post for the official news story!</p>
