March 10, 2011 – Attorney Christopher W. Rogers spoke to the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District in Ohio regarding the Utica Shale. The Utica Shale is a rock layer located under the Marcellus Shale. Although much deeper than the Marcellus Shale, the Utica Shale will likely be another source of natural gas in the future. Leasing and drilling of the Utica Shale has already taken place in eastern Ohio and parts of Ontario, Canada. The production of natural gas from these wells provides companies with enormous quantities of natural gas.
