Oil production in Ohio grew from 4.9 million barrels in 2012 to 9.7 million 42-gallon barrels in 2013, according to MacKenzie’s estimate.
Meanwhile, natural gas production climbed from about 83 billion cubic feet in 2012 to 203 billion cubic feet in 2013.
The new data in the DeBrosse Report “should get people’s attention,” MacKenzie told the audience. “They got my attention.”

Ohio’s totals are still far behind the top natural gas states like Texas, Louisiana and Pennsylvania.
MacKenzie’s estimates are the first numbers released on possible production totals from 2013, at a time when the Utica shale development is starting to take off.Read that whole article here.
