Ohio Utica Shale

A closer look at ODNR's 1Q 2014 production numbers

By Bob Downing Published: July 7, 2014

Friend Jim Willis of the New York-based Marcellus Drilling News crunched the numbers on Ohio's Utica shale production in the first quarter 2014.

That information was released last week by the Ohio Department of Natureal Resources.

The top two natural gas-producing wells were the Eclipse Resources' Tippens well in Monroe County with 1,117,754,000 cubic feet and Antero Resources' Gary well in Monroe County with 1,115,8012,000 cubic feet in 1Q 2014..

The next eight wells for natural gas were all Gulfport Energy wells in Belmont County.

For oil, the top-producing well was Antero Resources Neuhart well in Noble County with 49,057 barrels.

Seven of the top 10 oil wells were in Noble County.

Carroll County was No. 1 for gas production with 224 producing wells and 27,550,376,000 cubic feet and Belmont County was No. 2 with 26 wells and 13,138,089,000 cubic feet in the quarter.

Belmont, obviously, is generating huge production numbers.

For oil, it's Carroll County No. 1 in the quarter with 691,273 barrels, followed by Harrison (481,080 barrels), Noble (383,653 barrels) and Guernsey (306,184 barrels).

Jim Willis posted his report on Friday at the Marcellus Drilling News: (Subscription required).
