Abstract

The Ohio legislature is poised to make some small but mighty changes in Ohio’s oil and gas statute that will create even smoother sailing for the shale oil and gas industry. Their proposals, appearing in House Bill 8, are amendments to Ohio’s oil and gas law. This article describes what they’re doing, seemingly unbeknownst to most landowners — public and private.
