We reported yesterday on several of the amendments approved by West Virginia's Joint Select Committee on Marcellus Shale (see here).  Forbes is reporting that the committee has also made some decisions regarding permit fees:  "Natural gas operators would pay $10,000 to drill a well in West Virginia's share of the Marcellus shale field, and $5,000 for each additional well at the initial site, under a proposal adopted Wednesday by a special legislative committee."

Not so in Ohio!
