Study: Ohio’s Shale Energy Sector Yields $78B of Investment Since 2011

Total investment in Ohio’s resource-rich shale energy sector has reached $78 billion since tracking began in 2011, according to a Cleveland State University study. Prepared for JobsOhio, the report represents the most recent data available and covers investments through the second half of 2018.
