Ohio Governor signs new natural gas bill (SB 315)

Gov. Kasich signed Senate Bill 315 into law on June 11th. Senate bill 315 has new laws that effect well construction, water usage, and disclosure of some chemicals used, although other chemicals are allowed to remain trade secrets. In addition, the new law increases daily fines for violations of the law to 20,000 and increases mandatory water quality testing around the well from 500 feet to 1500 feet.
