Utica Shale Play May Extend Farther West

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources posted revised maps last week, indicating that drilling opportunities for oil and natural gas may extend further west and south than initially expected. Information gleaned from wells drilled last year, as well as samplings from test wells, indicate a new potential “hot spot” for production on the border between Marion and Wyandot counties. The revised maps also indicate that production may be greater than expected in Hancock, Hardin, Wyandot and Seneca counties.
