Devon Energy Corp.'s top man, John Richels, said nothing about Ohio's Utica shale in a presentation on Tuesday at the IPAA Oil and Gas Investment Symposium in New York.
Richels spoke highly of the Permian and Mississippian formations where Devon is actively drilling, plus the oil sads in Alebrta that the company is pursuing.
Devon drilled less-than-successful wells in Ohio's Utica shale in Medina and Ashland counties. Both wells have been plugged.
It has drilled a few other wells, mostly on the western edge of the Utica shale away from where other companies are drilling in an effort to get oil.
