Nonprofit FracTracker Alliance monitors gas and oil companies' activities; sets up newest chapter in Ohio.
"Ted Auch, the new Ohio program coordinator for the FracTracker Alliance, fills the expectations the Wean Foundation set for its bottom- floor incubator. Auch, a 36-year-old Vermont native who has a doctoral degree in ecological modeling, is coordinating the nonprofit organization studying the hydraulic-fracturing industry. He works from one of the six offices there as well as visiting other oil and gas locations in the state." --Ed Runyan, vindy.com
