Economic impacts of development of oil and gas resources from Ohio's Marcellus and Utica shale is the focus of collaborative research, led by Cleveland State University’s Center for Economic Development, along with OSU’s Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics and petroleum engineers at Marietta College. The Ohio Chamber of Commerce commissioned the study for the Ohio Shale Coalition. A report is expected to be issued by the end of 2011.
Experts Doug Southgate and Allen Klaiber of AEDE and Mike Lloyd, extension educator for community development in Noble County, will discuss the impact of natural gas production on rural Ohio at the 2011 Farm Science Review on Tuesday, September 20th. Please join us at 10:00 a.m. in the Tobin Building at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, Ohio.
