We spotted a story that Morrow County, OH’s very first fracked well is under construction. EOR Technology is drilling the well in Denmark (Canaan Township), OH. Morrow County is almost smack in the very center of the state–far outside of the eastern counties where fracking is currently done. That sent us to the Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources’ permit database to find out more about the well.
