On March 21, 2017, the Ohio 10th Circuit Court of Appeals granted a stay to the February 21, 2017 restart order which the Ohio Department of Natural Resource’s Division of Oil and Gas Resources Management (the “Division”) requested of the court. The Ohio 10th Circuit Court of Appeals stay is in effect until such time as it is revoked or until the appellate court rules on the merits of the Division’s appeal of the February 21, 2017 order.
As previously reported, on February 21, 2017, the Court of Common Pleas in Franklin County, Ohio issued its Final Decision and Order in the AWMS Water Solutions, LLC appeal of the Ohio Oil and Gas Commission’s decision that upheld the Division’s suspension of the AWMS #2 injection well. AWMS Water Solutions, LLC (the “Company”) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Avalon Holdings Corporation. The Court’s Order set conditions for the restarting of AWMS #2 in accordance with the proposed restart plans filed by the Company with minor revisions.
While the Company was making preparations for restarting the well and opening the facility, the March 21, 2017 motion to stay granted by the Ohio 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has caused the Company to cease those preparations for restarting the AWMS #2 injection well.
