ODNR reports seven new permits last month in county

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- Noble County led the state in Utica Shale permitting activity in October, according to the latest data from the state.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources said earlier this week that seven new horizontal drilling permits were issued in Noble County last month: six to Antero Resources and one to Anadarko Energy. The additional permits bring Noble County's total to 70. So far, 40 wells have been drilled in the county.
Guernsey County saw five new permits issued last month, bringing the county's total to 60. Twenty-two wells have been drilled there so far.
Officials approved five new permits in Monroe County, as well, for a total of 47. Twenty-six wells have been drilled in Monroe County.
The hunt for successful producing wells also appears to be moving in Belmont County. There were four permits issued during October.
The ODNR says that 953 horizontal drilling permits have been issued in Ohio's Utica Shale, so far. To date, 597 Utica shale wells have been drilled.
