Ohio drillers will be required to file quarterlygnatural gas-oil production reports, starting in January 2014.
At present, Ohio only requires a once-a-year report.
That news surfaced on Thursday when Ohio Department of Natural Resources officials spoke at the Guernsey County Energy Colaition meeting. The news was reported on Sunday by the Cambridge newspaper.
Ohio had approved quarterly reports earlier, but it was unclear when that reporting change would go into effect.
