Shell Finds Utica Success in Tioga County
September 4, 2014
The Pittsburgh Business Times reported that Shell has drilled two producing wells in the Utica Shale formation in Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Shell credited its success to “solid technical work in [its] onshore business.” The two wells are many miles away from the majority of existing Utica wells and illustrate the potential of the Appalachian basin. The wells have demonstrated flowback rates of 11.2 million cubic feet per day and 26.5 million cubic feet per day. Shell is currently awaiting production results on four more recently drilled wells in Tioga County.
