Permitting Remains Slow in Utica Shale on Latest Weekly Report

The trend for Utica shale permitting in Ohio continued last week, according to the latest report from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).

After just five new permits were issued in the week ending June 13 and the rig count declined all the way to 18, only four new permits were issued last week.  Carroll County was the spot for three of those four, with two going to Chesapeake Energy and one to Rex Energy.  The only other permit was issued to American Energy Utica for a well in Harrison County.

The cumulative permit count now stands at 1,936 permits issued, 1,512 wells drilled, and 906 wells producing.  The rig count increased by one, to 19.

View the report below.  And remember, you can always view the latest weekly and cumulative permitting reports, as well as production data, in The Daily Digger mobile app, which is available now in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
