At the end of September, Ohio Governor John R. Kasich held an Ohio Energy Summit to lay the foundation for a comprehensive state Energy and Economic Development Policy. Since that time, there have been a number of related articles that you might find of interest:
- Oil and gas energy's pay day: $500 billion (the Times-Reporter);
- Drillers snapping up rights leases in Ohio (part of a three-day series run by the Columbus Dispatch);
- Buckeye Oil Billions Will Unleash an Ohio Manufacturing Tech Boom (Forbes). The article here begins well: "A prediction. The Ohio Valley is on track to become a hotbed of innovation. And one which will almost certainly focus on 21st century manufacturing. The catalyst for this seemingly counter-intuitive claim? Money. Black gold. Ohio is about to be awash in both." Let's hope the author is right!
