The Ohio Farm Bureau Federation will hold a series of briefings across Ohio to help landowners learn more about emerging oil and gas issues in Ohio, how it will impact them and their communities and how they can potentially benefit from it.
The information sessions will be facilitated by Dale Arnold, director for energy services with the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, and will feature resource speakers from the Ohio Department of Agriculture and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. A list of events is highlighted below.
New technology, access to deeper shale formations and revised estimates on petroleum and natural gas reserves are combining to create a potential economic boom in many of Ohio’s rural areas.
Briefing topics include legal issues concerning leasing, as well as regulations addressing oil and gas exploration. Additional information on how new energy projects could impact local planning and community development will be presented.
Oil and gas exploration, field operations and refining operations will span several decades. Many county Farm Bureau Public Policy Action Teams are working with landowners and residents access accurate information and answers. They have created policies advocating partnerships including residents, local businesses, government leaders and energy developers to create strategies that protect natural resources, enhance income, generate jobs, and provide additional resources for communities and schools.
