Companies investing heavily in Ohio natural gas-processing plants

Ohio.com -- KENSINGTON: The hilltops in southwest Columbiana County are under attack.

Construction equipment is turning a former farm off state Route 644 in Hanover Township, about two miles east of Kensington, into a natural gas-processing facility that is scheduled to open in May. It is mostly a ground-clearing operation so far, said spokesman David Mashek.

But not for long.

A shale boom is under way in Ohio. Land has been leased. Nearly 190 wells have been drilled. Natural gas, oil and other liquids are being pumped from the liquid-rich Utica formation deep underground.

Now, Ohio is looking at billions of dollars invested in processing plants, pipelines and compression facilities — so-called “midstream projects” — to get those commodities to market.

Fracking for gas is taking over the country. I sure hope it all works out favorably. We’re going to be in deep doodoo if the critics are right and the toxic fluids contaminate the water supply. Oil and gas are good and useful products but clean water is essential to life. It will be a bad tradeoff if we gain a great gas supply and have no water that is safe to drink.

This along with other energy ideas should help free us from some of the use of oil. Also all ethanol does not have to come from CORN, the corn lobbyists just convinced us of that long ago. We can try potatoes and sugar cane that produce more than corn.

Tell me @clermont40miles, do you get your drinking water from a well? Hope you like the taste of fracking fluid.

I don't understand your statement, @toadNY. Ohio voted for the President and now they have natural gas drilling.

Guess that image of Obama being the enemy of the fossil fuel industry doesn't hold any water, huh?

Do you even know any "greenies", @gasokie? They make pretty convenient scapegoats but that image is very far from the truth.

I'll take natural gas over coal, any day of the week. Just don't get greedy and cut corners on the fracking.

My question is, how much politics what involved in this to put it in Ohio? Why not Indiana or Wyoming, or Montana? It sure poses a strange bottom line.
