On January 27, 2016, the Akron Beacon Journal editorial board posted ‘Where are the new rules for drilling in Ohio’, which discussed as follows: “John Kasich has described Ohio’s regulations on oil & gas drilling as among the toughest in the nation. Drilling activity rapidly increased, oil and gas companies using horizontal wells & hydraulic fracturing to reach resources in deep shale. The scale of these operations is truly staggering, each well producing millions of gallons of waste water containing drilling chemicals. The Department of Natural Resources provides oversight of oil and gas drilling, but hasn’t followed through. A report by the Columbus Dispatch showed that of 20 rules the agency was working on, only one is in place. It covers the construction of well pads. Action by this department is important because local governments have been stripped of authority over oil & gas drilling. If the state fails to act, communities are left without a way to respond to concerns from their residents about potential environmental impacts. Still in the works are rules covering recycling waste water from hydraulic fracturing, tracking it as it leaves the drilling site and to report well leaks. Without pressure from the governor and leaders, the state will have a regulatory framework far less robust than promised.
Last fall, a legislative report recommended a gradual phase-in of higher severance taxes, citing industry concerns that a tax increase would cripple drilling activity dampened by low prices. What the report also noted is that the state’s tax burden on drillers is now “lower than or as low as every other state with a severance tax.” For his part, the governor rightly has continued to propose a modest increase, shifting from a low, volume-based tax to a 6.5% rate based on current market prices. Such a tax would place Ohio about in the middle of what other states charge, hardly an invitation for drillers to abandon rich deposits in the state. Increased taxes would provide the revenue to support a strong, sensible regulatory system capable of heading off environmental and public health disasters. The report recommends using tax revenues to help local governments affected by hydraulic fracturing — and to fund additional income tax rate cuts. Ohioans deserve both effective, comprehensive rules governing the taking of onetime resources and a tax system that ensures enforcement. Both deserve prompt attention from the governor and members of the legislature.” The full article is available at this link.
