Halcon Resources suspends Utica drilling in Ohio, Pennsylvania

By Bob Downing Published: March 3, 2014

Texas-based Halcon Resources has suspended drilling operations in the Utica shale in eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania.

The suspension was confirmed today in an email from the company.

Halcon Resources currently has no rigs running in the Utica shale, said spokesman Jordan Beadling in Houston.

He said the company currently has a well flowing back and a well resting, and it is  waiting on results from these two wells.

"At this time, we do not plan to move in any rigs this year," he said.

The company has three producing wells in Trumbull County, where one additional wels has been drilled, one well is being drilled and three have been permitted.

In Mahoning County, it has one producing Utica well with two additional wells permitted.

It also has drilled Utica wells in western Pennsylvania in Mercer, Venango and Crawford counties.

It has leased about 139,000 acres in Ohio and Pennsylvania.
