More on Ohio's elusive Utica shale oil window/area

By Bob Downing Published: March 4, 2013

    Here are some leftover items from recent first quarter and 2012 earnings calls with analysts:

The Utica oil window in Ohio is “just moving slower,” said EV Energy Partners spokesman John Ragozzino.

CNX has permitted six wells in Tuscarawas County, west of the so-called wet window with natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids. That is where oil is likely to be found, the experts say.

Three of the six wells have been drilled. EVEP has a working interest in one of those wells which has been completed but has not been turned online.

The other wells are in varying stages of drilling and completion, although one well has the reported plug test results with a peak of 400 barrels of light crude per day.

Devon Energy has plugged wells in Medina and Ashland counties in the oil window, saying the oil results were disappointing.

It has other wells being drilled to the west.
