An appeal of a drilling permit for an Athens County injection well has been dismissed by the Ohio Oil & Gas Commission.
The Athens County Fracking Action Network had appealed a permit issued last December to K&H Partners for a well in Troy Twp.
Both the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and K&H Partners filed motions seeking dismissal of the appeal.
In its decision, the state commission said that under Ohio law and an Ohio Supreme Court ruling it lacks jurisdiction to hear the appeal.
