On April 1, 2012, it was reported that Timothy Berge of Pangean Resources LLC of Denver, Colorado is hoping to persuade companies to drill some new test wells in Iowa in the next few years. The wells would involve fracking. Berge has sent out lease offers for hundreds of thousands of acres to various Iowa counties. Iowa has no fracking regulations.[1]

Legislative issues and regulations

Iowa has no fracking regulations.[1]

In February 2016 Iowa will decide whether to grant Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) a permit for its Dakota Access pipeline. The pipeline carrying Bakken Shale would cut across the state. The Iowa Utilities Board will conduct deliberations on Dakota Access from February 8 through February 11, after which the Board will vote on the pipeline proposal.[2]
