Ryan, Johnson supportive of BP gas exploration

NORTH JACKSON — U.S. Reps. Tim Ryan, a Democrat, and Bill Johnson, a Republican, don’t agree on a lot of issues, but both are supportive of BP’s natural-gas exploration operations in the Mahoning Valley.

The two congressmen met today with BP officials at the gas giant’s Ohio headquarters in North Jackson on Mahoning Avenue to talk about the company’s plans.

It’s very early in the process, said Tim Harrington, regional president of BP North America Gas, who met privately with Ryan and Johnson.

BP will spend two years evaluating whether this area is ideal for shale drilling, Harrington said.

The area hasn’t seen the potential for such economic prosperity “since the steel mills came here years and years ago,” Johnson said.

Take our resources and sell them to other countries so we can pay more for what's in our backyards. BRILLIANT IDEA.
