Energy Policy Center Releases Shale Investment Dashboard Results

The Energy Policy Center, housed within the Maxine Goodman Levin School of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University, recently released its "Shale Investment Dashboard in Ohio Q3 and Q4 2022" (2023). The study team, comprised of Andrew Thomas, Ph.D., Mark Henning, Ph.D., and Samuel Owusu-Agyemang, presents findings from an investigation into shale-related investment in Ohio, looking at up, mid, and downstream activities.

The investment estimates are for July through December of 2022 and include an estimate of cumulative investment in shale in Ohio from 2012 through December 2022. Altogether, shale-related investment in Ohio for the second half of 2022, including upstream, midstream, and downstream, was around $2.5 Billion. Cumulative total shale related investment since 2012 is around $103.1 billion. Prior biannual investments are included in previously posted reports that are available from Cleveland State University.

The mission of the EPC is to help overcome social and institutional barriers to the implementation of solutions to energy challenges by providing an objective channel for the free exchange of ideas, the dissemination of knowledge, and the support of energy-related research in the areas of public policy, economics, law, business, and social science.
