From Kallanish Energy:
Belmont was Ohio’s most-drilled county in 2016, with the most drilled wells, 120, and the most drilled footage, at 1.94 million vertical and lateral feet.
Those figures were part of a fact-filled presentation by Martin Shumway, president of Shumway Resources, Thursday at the Ohio Oil and Gas Association’s 70th annual winter meeting in the Ohio capital of Columbus. Kallanish Energy attended the meeting.
The number of wells drilled in Belmont, in the heart of the Utica Shale’s dry-gas window, jumped 67% in 2016, Shumway said, in presenting the Debrosse Memorial Report on 2016 drilling.
