Ohio Utica Shale

Chesapeake wells in Ohio doing well

By Bob Downing Published: October 19, 2012

CNBC's Jim Cramer came to Northeast Ohio this week including a stop at the Timken Co.'s Faircrest Steel Plant south of Canton.

He interviewed Aubrey McClendon, the CEO of Chesapeake Energy Corp., at a well in nearby Carroll County. That Wednesday interview was taped and added to his Mad Money w/Jim Cramer shows.

During the interview, an interesting factoid popped on the screen: Chesapeake has drilled 87 wells in Ohio and 28 of them are producing in excess of 1,000 barrels of oil equivalents per day.

That may be in natural gas, oil and so-called natural gas liquids like ethane, butane and propane.

Chesapeake has offered only limited production data on a few wells in the Utica shale in eastern Ohio. It must report 2012-2013 production numbers to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources next spring.

McClendon also said his company has paid $1.3 billion in lease bonuses to landowners in eastern Ohio.

His company is beginning to move from the capture phase to the harvest phase in Ohio, McClendon said.
