A quote about Ohio's Utica shale:
“This is one of the most ethane-rich plays I’ve ever seen in the world,” said Greg Davis, vice president of marketing at Range Resources Corp.
“Some of our wells are up to 18 [percent], 20 percent ethane out of the ground. … We’re talking about 500,000 barrels a day including ethane out of this play by 2018. That’s an enormous number," he said at a recent conference in Columbus, Ohio.
His company has been active in the Marcellus shale in Pennsylvania.
