Five New Utica Shale Permits Issued Last Week

The latest weekly update on Utica shale permitting in Ohio has been made available by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.  It was another relatively slow week.

Five new permits were issued.  Monroe County was the hot spot, with four of those five permits going to Gulfport Energy for wells there.  The only other permit was issued to Chesapeake Energy for its Ellie 19-14-6 1H well in Carroll County's Orange Township.

The five new permits last week push the cumulative total to 1,980, with 1,543 wells drilled and 926 producing.  The Utica rig count held at 20.

The report can be viewed below.
