Ohio Shale Oil and Gas Well Site Checklist Mobile App
The Ohio Shale Oil and Gas Well Site Checklist mobile app was developed as a tool for drilling companies to identify potential compliance/permitting issues associated with locating a drill pad.
How does it work?
This checklist is only a starting point and one tool to help you. It should not be your only source of information about Ohio regulations, nor should it serve as an alternative to seeking assistance from experienced consultants and/or legal counsel to help you fully understand and achieve compliance with laws and regulations. This checklist does not cover all applicable Ohio regulations and permitting requirements, including the full scope of regulations for drilling operations The app checks the following areas: assessing wetlands and streams/authorization for impacts to waters of the state , identifying potential impacts to source water protection areas and sensitive resources, identifying sources and management of water/fluids for hydraulic fracturing , sanitary waste management and drinking water, off-site management of drill cuttings and fluids and air emission sources associated with production operations.
