Shale Energy Development

OSU Extension Educators from around the state aim to deliver outreach and education programs and provide educational resources to landowners, community residents, and community leaders on the development of Ohio's shale resources.  OSU Extension collaborates with the Ohio State Subsurface Energy Resource Center (SERC) to disseminate research throughout Ohio and beyond to support informed decision making.  The Ohio State Subsurface Energy Resource Center (SERC) contributes to the knowledge of subsurface resource development and its associated environmental issues, as well as serves as a resource to policy makers. SERC effectively organizes and mobilizes our competencies into an interdisciplinary university center that serves as an “honest broker” to interface between industry, government agencies and non-government organizations.
