Above link to some news on the Velocys (previously 'Pinto') Gas To Liquids Plant to be built in the City of Ashtabula.

Wow! 147million gallons of waste in a year hauled from PA to Ohio because they fear earthquakes may occur. Just don't seem right.

Yeah, I find it very interesting the geology changes at the state line. 

If they ever crack the code for Ashtabula county seems many will lose out for future drilling if they keep allowing other states to dump here. (The article says 80% of waste is from other states) This should not be allowed it gives the oil companys no incentive for other alternatives.

  I would scratch that out, they would not even blink. I guess there is no loss in trying to get it past.

  ODNR shows more injections wells on the eastern side of Ashtabula than on the western side. One would think the geology of east Ashtabula would be similar to PA.

  I know several people in my area who are HBP with old Clinton and Rose Run wells whose leases allow for injection wells. One saving grace in my area is many parcels are only 825' wide.

  If things ever pick back up, this could become a problem for us. We are close to the border, there is no local control, and there is a good deal of money to be made for allowing it.

That's something James.

News to me.

How about adding a no injection well clause ?

Did you try that on any of your leases ?

Can't confirm or deny the part about PA's geology being unsuitable for injection wells - so is ours because we don't want any of their drill waste here either. Have them send it somewhere else or go waterless fracturing. Here's a thought - maybe they can sell / export it !

This question was asked at the July meeting in Jefferson. It was stated that their geology was not ideal for disposal wells. I have no way of knowing if that statement is true, or self serving.

  I know every lease offered to me over the years had the right to injection wells included in the wording. One can only wonder how many landowners that are hbp have already signed up for an injection well.

Re.: PA having their own disposal wells.


They (PA) ought to dispose of their own drilling waste in their own State.

We're on the same bus again elliemae82.

I hope Ashtabula county doesn't become a dumping grounds for other states. Anyone know why EPA doesn't allow injection wells in PA? Seems like if they can drill a well they should deal with the waste.

Take the link to a Trumbull County discussion for some current info on relatively recent lease and well activity there.

EV - CGAS - the three (3) BP wells sold - assignments - HBP leases etc.

From reading the Ashtabula County Recorder's pages seems CGAS is also BIG in Ashtabula County.

Any current similar actvities Ashtabula County members care to share ?
