Ohio Utica Shale

Company working on first Utica well in Trumbull County

From the Marcellus Drilling News:

One month ago Halcon Resources purchased Carrizo Oil & Gas’ northern Utica Shale acreage (15,000 acres) for $43 million (see this MDN story). Halcon is not letting any grass grow under their feet. They are already working on their first Utica Shale well—preparing the site—in Trumbull County, OH. When completed, it will be the first active Utica Shale well in the county:


Houston-based Halcon Resources is wasting no time developing leased acreage it recently acquired in Hartford Township.

Site preparation work is underway at the Brugler Utica well site on Hayes-Orangeville Road. If drilling goes forward it will be the first active Utica well in Trumbull County.

Across the stateline in West Salem Township, Halcon is even further along in its horizontal drilling operation.

A drilling rig is now in place at the Phillips 1H site on State route 358 and South State Line Road.

The Mercer and Trumbull County acreage that Halcon is developing was part of the leases the company recently acquired from Carrizo Oil and Gas.*
