Findlay supervisors voted 3-0 tonight to approve the development of three Marcellus Shale natural gas wells on Clinton-Frankfort Road.
Range Resources-Appalachia LLC representatives said initial drilling could begin as early as August on about 10 acres of private agricultural land.
"This really will be a test well to see what kind of production we get, and then the company will make plans on not just the other two wells on this well pad, but the development of other wells in the area," said Glenn Truzzi, environmental engineering manager for Range Resources in Cecil.
The project will include construction of the well pad and a 1,128-foot-long access road, vertical and horizontal drilling, hydraulic fracturing and flaring.
Township supervisors eventually will hear separate plans for Consol Energy Inc. to drill at Pittsburgh International Airport.
