10 New Permits Issued Last Week as Number of Utica Shale Wells Drilled Reaches 1,400

The latest weekly permitting report from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources is now available, and the rig count continues falling even as new permits continue to be issued.

10 new permits were approved last week.  Five of those permits were for wells in Monroe County, three for Belmont County, and two for Carroll County.  The busiest operator was Antero Resources, which received four of the 10 permits.

The cumulative totals continue to climb, and there have now been 1,864 horizontal drilling permits issued for Ohio's Utica shale.  An even 1,400 wells have now been drilled, and 829 are producing.  The Utica rig count continues to slide, falling to 26 this week.
