Each year Cleveland State University publishes a report for JobsOhio looking at how much money has been invested by the private sector in the Utica Shale (and related) industry. The CSU’s eighth report (full copy below) was recently released and shows some eye-popping numbers. Total shale investment from July through December 2019 in Ohio was approximately $3.06 billion, including upstream, midstream, and downstream. Cumulative shale oil and gas investment in Ohio through the end of 2019 is estimated to be $86.4 billion! It’s hard to wrap your head around that kind of money and its impact on the Ohio economy.
