Washington County Will See First Well in 2013

From The Marietta Times:
An official with energy resource company Triad Hunter says the first horizontal wells are planned to be drilled in Washington County next year.
Jim Denny, president and chief operating officer for Triad Hunter, the locally-founded business purchased two years ago by Texas-based Magnum Hunter Resources, said the company plans to drill its first horizontal well in February, with more on the horizon. That activity would take place primarily in Washington and Monroe counties.
"We have plans to drill as many as 10 next year," he said.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources lists 457 Utica shale wells permitted in the state, none of them in Washington County so far.
