Rig Count Increases by One in Another Slow Utica Shale Permitting Week
21 permits were issued in the week ending July 4. That number dropped to 10 the following week. Last week, only six new permits were issued. All went to Chesapeake Exploration, and all were for Carroll County well sites: the Delmar 24-13-6 6H and 7H, and the Ellie 19-14-6 2H, 3H, 4H, and 5H wells.
So now with this past week's activity, there are 1,980 Utica shale horizontal wells permitted in Ohio. 1,535 wells have been drilled and 925 are producing. The Utica rig count increased for the second straight week, bumping up by one to reach a total of 20.
