Bobcat Hubbard LLC, a subsidiary of Bobcat Energy Resources LLC, has submitted an application to drill a new wastewater injection well in Trumbull County, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

The well will be located just south of Hubbard-Masury Road and east of U.S. Route 62 in Hubbard Township, according to the Youngstown Business Journal.

Injection wells in Ohio are used to store contaminated wastewater generated from oil and gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing operations in the Utica and Marcellus shale plays. Much of this water is contaminated and must either be recycled or disposed of – usually through Class II injection wells.
