Does anyone know why drilling companies can't get permits to drill under interstate highways in Ohio. I know drilling units near me are always drilled right to the edge of the interstate then abruptly stop near me. Also, I have land that's split in two by the interstate and there are wells on each end of my property on both sides of the interstate so I'm blocked in since no drilling can take place under I-70. I've been told this by multiple companies but I haven't been able to find out what government agency is blocking it. I talked to an inspector for the ODNR and he said it wasn't them. He said it might be the Ohio department of transportation or the federal government but he didn't know. I've been told that this could change soon but no one seems to know exactly what's going on with this?
Did anyone attend the meeting Wednesday? I wonder if it sounded like they were going to try and change things?
The Columbus dispatch had an article on the meeting and what they discussed. I posted it on my facebook page. bobo boboski
If I were AEP I would file a suit to challenge the sale since they are the mineral owner and over the last 10 years the State has shown to be obstructionistic to the mineral estate.
