Ohio Utica Shale

Utica, Marcellus shale producing wells at historic highs, Cleveland Fed says

By Jim Mackinnon Published: July 13, 2016

Here's what the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland had to say about the Utica and Marcellus shale regions in today's Beige Book report:

"The number of rigs operating in the Marcellus and Utica Shales was little changed during this reporting period after declining precipitously during the past year.

"Nonetheless, the number of producing wells and regional natural gas output both remain at historic highs.

"Several contacts expressed the sentiment that the oil and gas industry may have reached the bottom of the current cycle, and they are hopeful that the industry will begin turning around late this year.

"Wellhead prices rose slightly. Investment in pipeline and midstream projects moved forward.

"Little hiring is occurring in the oil and gas industry at this time, and wage increases are sluggish."
