Permitting Slows and Rig Count Declines Again on Latest ODNR Report

The Utica rig count dropped for the second straight week on the latest permitting update from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.  After going over 20 for the first time all year two weeks ago, the latest report shows that the rig count is back down to 17.

There were also just two new permits issued last week, both in Belmont County.

2,268 wells are now permitted, 1,827 are drilled, and 1,413 are producing.
