WASHINGTON, DC — Oil and gas lobby group Energy In Depth has produced a voter’s guide to this year’s general election, including Ohio state legislative races. The lobby group was created in 2009 with initial funding from El Paso Corporation, XTO Energy, Occidental Petroleum, BP, Anadarko, Marathon, EnCana, Chevron, Talisman, Shell, API, IPAA, Halliburton, Schlumberger and the Ohio Oil and Gas Association.
The guide compares the records and statements on hydraulic fracturing of key races in Ohio’s shale regions, beginning with the Ohio Senate District 20 race between Sen. Troy Balderson and Teresa McGraner Scarmack.
