Ohio Utica Shale

Chesapeake Energy offers little data on wastewater recycling

By Bob Downing Published: October 7, 2013

How much fracking wastewater is being recycled in Ohio?

It's hard to tell.

Chesapeake Energy Corp. is the No. 1 driller in Ohio, and it says 88 percent of its Utica wastewater is recycled.

But the company refused to provide any additional information about the recycling facility it opened in early 2012 outside of Carrollton in Carroll County.

It offered a four-sentence statement and little else.

It offered no information on the volume of liquid wastes being produced or processed.

At that time, Chesapeake said additional recycling facilities were planned in eastern Ohio.

To date, no additional facilities have been built, the company said through then-spokesman Pete Kenworthy when the Akron Beacon Journal inquired.
