Another Active Week of Permitting in Utica Shale

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has released its weekly permitting update for the Utica shale, and it was another busy week.

32 new permits were issued last week.  Harrison County was leading the way, with 8 permits - all issued to Chesapeake Energy.  Those 8 new permits bring Harrison County's cumulative total to 243.

7 new permits were issued for Monroe County sites, marking 103 permits there and making Monroe the 7th county in Ohio to pass 100 Utica shale permits.

6 permits were issued for Belmont County, 4 for Guernsey County, 3 each for Carroll and Noble counties, and 1 permits was issued to Halcon Resources for a Trumbull County well.

All of that activity means that there have now been 1,364 permits issued for horizontal drilling in Ohio's Utica shale.  925 wells have been drilled and 470 are producing.  The Utica rig count is 45.
