Permitting Picks Back Up, Especially in Carroll and Belmont Counties

The latest report from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources shows a big bump in permitting activity.

There were 38 new permits issued in the week ending November 8.  They were spread across 5 counties.  The leader was Carroll County, with 14 new permits (9 to Chesapeake Energy and 5 to Rex Energy).  Close behind was Belmont County, with 13.  The other counties on the report were Monroe (6), Guernsey (4), and Harrison (1).

This flurry of activity pushed the new cumulative total to 1,609 permits issued.  1,162 wells have been drilled, 617 are producing, and the Utica rig count climbed up to 51.
