Ohio House Bill 133: New Opportunities for Oil and Gas Development on State Lands

The development of Marcellus and Utica shale offers the State of Ohio exciting new opportunities relating to oil and gas production, economic development and job growth.  Seeking to take advantage of these opportunities, the Ohio General Assembly recently passed House Bill 133, which overhauled the process by which lands owned or controlled by the State of Ohio can be leased for oil and gas development.  Please visit Bricker & Eckler's website for a detailed overview of HB 133, or for more information about Marcellus and Utica shale.
