Ohio DNR Releases 4th Quarter 2013 Horizontal Shale Production Figures

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources released production figures from the state's horizontal shale wells for the fourth quarter of 2013 last week.  I was away from the office because my wife was giving birth, so here is a rundown to get our readers up-to-date on what the report revealed.

First, here is what the ODNR said in its statement with the release of the production numbers:
The report lists 397 wells, 352 of which reported production results. Forty-five wells reported no production as they are waiting on pipeline infrastructure. The 352 wells produced 1,439,308 barrels of oil and 43,124,803 Mcf (1,000 cubic feet) of natural gas. 
Of those 352 wells: 
- The average amount of oil produced was 4,089 barrels.
- The average amount of gas produced was 122,514 Mcf.
- The average number of days in production was 62. 
The highest producing oil well was the Gulfport Energy “Boy Scout” well in Harrison County at 26,095 barrels of oil during 80 days of production. The highest producing gas well was the Antero Resources’ “Gary” well in Monroe County at 1,329,318 Mcf during 67 days of production. 
Compared to revised 2013 third quarter data, oil production increased by 103,982 barrels or 8 percent. Natural gas production increased by 9,491,914 Mcf or 28 percent.
Here is a breakdown of some of the numbers.
