Ohio’s volume of drilling waste going into injection wells grows by 15 percent

The volume of drilling wastes injected in Ohio grew by nearly 15 percent last year, almost entirely due to increasing in-state Utica shale production.Data compiled from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources show that Ohio accepted more than 16.3 million barrels of liquid waste in 2013 — enough to fill a train of tanker cars nearly 242 miles long.Waste volume from out-of-state drilling sources remained basically the same from 2012 to 2013. The sharp change came from in-state, as liquids produced in Ohio grew from 5.9 million barrels to nearly 8.1 million barrels, an increase of 36.7 percent.
