When Infocast introduced the premiere edition of Black Gold Ohio in the fall of 2012, the predictions for an unprecedented explosion in the Buckeye State’s oil and gas arena were considered by some as too good to be true. Now, only a year later, they’re all coming true.
- Exploration & Construction – Chesapeake, Mark West, Caiman, Gulfport and NiSource among others, have committed billions of dollars to drilling and development.
- Jobs – Shale-related employment in the state has skyrocketed to 39,000+ and is expected to top 180,000 by 2025.
- State Revenue – Sales receipts in the 13 ‘strong shale’ counties increased over 21% in the past year and a recent IHS study projects $20B+ in state-economic output by 2025.
- It’s Bigger Than They Thought – A March 2013 report by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources revealed that the game-changing Utica Shale Play may extend into an additional seven counties.
However, to harness the potential of this extraordinary Ohio revival, the supporting infrastructure must be developed at breakneck speed. An extensive build-out of pipelines, gathering systems, and storage facilities is required to fulfill the gas boom. An interconnected transportation network is crucial in getting goods to market. Finally, it’s vital to train qualified workers and establish the community infrastructure to accommodate them to fully realize the long-term bounty of the Utica play.
Infocast’s 2nd Black Gold Ohio Summit is designed to provide an inclusive, cutting-edge forum for stakeholders from E&P and midstream companies, construction and engineering firms, industrial manufacturers, transportation companies, financial players, government gatekeepers and real estate and community developers, to share their success stories and lessons learned. We urge you to take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to connect with the prime movers of Ohio’s energy renaissance!
