Drilling reports show southeastern Ohio dominating production in Q1 2014

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- A new report from the drilling industry shows that southeastern Ohio's Utica Shale is living up to much of the hype surrounding the horizontal drilling boom.

According to first-quarter reports from the major players in the Utica Shale, Monroe and Belmont counties are dominating the state, in terms of production. Eclipse Resources' Tippens Well and Antero Resources' Gary Well, both in Monroe County, came in first and second, respectively, in the first quarter of 2014. Both produced more than 1.1 billion cubic feet of natural gas in the first three months of this year.

The next eight top-producing gas wells, which belong to Gulfport Energy, are located in Belmont County.

On the whole, Carroll County came in first place for gas production with 224 producing wells and 27 billion cubic feet in January-through-March. Belmont County was number two, with 26 wells and 13.1 billion cubic feet in the quarter.

For oil, the top-producing well was Antero Resources' Neuhart Well in Noble County with more than 49,000 barrels in the first quarter. Seven of the top 10 oil wells were in Noble County.
