The Protege Energy Well Site in Monroe County
Protege Energy II, LLC, of Oklahoma constructs and operates at least two gas and oil wells in Monroe County, Ohio, in Ohio Township (named the Eisenbarth and Dangel well pads). In fact, one of the out-of-state’s just two “focus areas” for oil and gas extraction is Northeast Ohio (To see a map, click here.)
Protege has entered into a Road Use Maintenance Agreement (RUMA) with the county, as it is anticipated that the number and size of construction and well-operation vehicles that will use the roads around both wells are so great that they will cause damage to the roads.
Within that RUMA agreement is a list of sub-contractors being used by Protege Energy (Appendix A2). This list reveals that of 30 subcontractors being employed on two Ohio well sites in Monroe County, only six (6) of those are Ohio-based subcontractors. A look through all of the out-of-state contractors, most of which are from Texas, also reveals that there are qualified contractors within Ohio who can offer the same services to Protege Energy on its Ohio-based wells.Click To View RUMA Report
