Utica Shale 3rd Quarter 2013 Production Report Show Major Gas Production in Belmont, Monroe Counties

We've had a little bit to look over some of the numbers from the production report released by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources for shale drillers in the third quarter of 2013, and here are some of the tidbits that jumped out.

As was noted in the ODNR press release, the total production was 1,332,477 barrels of oil and 33,606,075,000 cubic feet of natural gas from 285 wells (only 245 of which reported production results).  To put that in perspective, there were 87 wells reporting when the ODNR last gave us a production report.  That report covered all of 2012, and for the entire year there were 635,896 barrels of oil and 12,836,662,000 cubic feet of natural gas produced.  That means that over twice as much oil was produced from Ohio shale wells in the third quarter of this year than in all of last year.  There was also 261% more natural gas produced in the third quarter of 2013 than in all of 2012.

A couple further details:

  • The top 5 wells for natural gas production all are in Belmont County.
  • The 6th to 10th best producing wells for natural gas are all in Monroe County.
  • 6 of the top 10 wells for oil production are located in Harrison County.
  • Gulfport Energy has the top 5 gas producing wells and the top oil producing well.
  • Chesapeake Energy has 5 of the top 10 oil producing wells.
Here is how some of the numbers break down.  Note that the oil number tells you how many 42-gallon barrels were produced, the gas numbers tell you the cubic feet (the report from the ODNR shows those figures in MCF, but I think you get a better idea by looking at the actual cubic feet) and include natural gas liquids, and brine numbers are 42-gallon barrels.
