The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has released the latest weekly Utica shale permitting update, and activity was higher than it has been in quite some time.

16 new permits were issued last week.  Guernsey County led the way, with 6 of those permits.  It was followed by Harrison County (5), Monroe County (4), and Belmont County (1).  11 of the 16 permits were issued to American Energy Utica.

This latest flurry of permitting activity pushes the cumulative total to 1,917, with 1,494 wells drilled and 897 producing.  The Utica rig count increased by 1 from the previous week, to 26.
