Bobcat Energy Plans 2nd Wastewater Injection Well Near Youngstown

Injection well process (click for larger version)

Last year Bobcat Energy Resources finished work on a Class II wastewater injection well in Coitsville Township, near Youngstown, OH, and began operating the well (see New Mahoning Injection Well Online Soon; OEPA Issues Violation). Bobcat has filed an application with the Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources (ODNR) to drill a second injection well at the same site. This is great news for Utica (and Marcellus) drillers that need a reliable way to dispose of large volumes of brine wastewater that comes out of wells for years after the wells are drilled and hooked to production.
