OOGA issues White Paper on Induced Seismicity and Traffic Light Systems as Related to Hydraulic Fracturing in Ohio

Posted By OOGA Induced Seismicity Workgroup, Monday, October 19, 2015

Subsequent to an earthquake in Ohio being associated with Hydraulic Fracturing, The Ohio Oil and Gas Association assembled a workgroup to research the issue and make recommendations on mitigating future events.  The workgroup was comprised of OOGA members across a range of companies and backgrounds.  The workgroup commissioned a White Paper on Induced Seismicity and Traffic Light Systems as Related to Hydraulic Fracturing in Ohio.  The author of the White Paper is Ivan Wong who was on the Editorial Committee for the Primer and was a significant contributor to the final version.  This White Paper was commissioned and completed prior to the Primer and, unlike the Primer, the White Paper focuses on seismicity associated with hydraulic fracturing and does prescribe some action.

July 1st EPCRA Reporting Deadline: Does Your Facility Need to File?

Posted By Administration, Sunday, July 27, 2014
Updated: Wednesday, January 7, 2015

Provided by Jackson Kelly PLLC

Section 313 of Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (“EPCRA“), 42 U.S.C. § 11001 to 11050, requires covered entities to submit reports to EPA and the applicable State concerning storage, processing, and use of certain toxic chemicals in order to increase the public’s knowledge of, and access to, such information. EPCRA is also known as the Toxic Chemical Release Inventory (“TRI”) program.  Covered entities are required to submit TRI forms to EPA each year by July 1st.  Beginning in 2014, the forms must be submitted electronically.  Meeting TRI reporting deadlines is critical because violations of Section 313 reporting provisions may result in federal civil penalties of up to $27,500 per day.
