MIDLAND - Two oil companies are one step closer to start drilling in Midland.
The Oil and Gas Advisory Committee unanimously approved for Linn Operating and Endeavor Energy resources to start drilling new wells.
But the companies still have to wait another 30 days to ask for approval from the city.
The soonest the companies can ask for approval is in November at a City Council meeting.
Depending on what citizens think, the City Council can make a decision 30 days after.
