Just Four New Permits Issued in Utica Shale During Slow Week; Rig Count Climbs by One

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has made available the latest weekly permitting update, and it was a slow week in the Utica shale.

Only four new permits were issued last week.  Three of those permits went to American Energy Utica for their Krinke MTP JF 2H, 4H, and 6H wells in Jefferson County.  The remaining permit was for the Kurtz Unit 3H well in Monroe County, which is owned by Antero Resources.

There have now been 1,867 permits issued for horizontal drilling in Ohio's Utica shale.  1,414 wells have been drilled, 934 are producing, and the Utica rig count rebounded just a hair (going from 26 last week to 27 this week).
