Only 3 New Permits Last Week, But Utica Shale Passes 1,100 Wells Drilled

The latest weekly Utica shale permitting update from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources reveals a slow week for new permits.  Despite that, the Utica shale passed another mile marker.

Only 3 new permits were issued last week.  2 of those went to Chevron for the Gooding 1-35HD and 9-35HD wells in Harrison County.  The only other permit went to Antero for its Neuhart West Unit 1H in Noble County.

With these 3 permits, the Utica shale has now climbed to 1,534 wells permitted.  This report is also the first to show that the Utica has passed 1,100 wells drilled, with 1,102.  The wells producing number stands at 584, and the Utica rig count is 45.
