Utica shale nearly doubles Ohio's natural gas production

NORTH CANTON

Ohio’s natural-gas production nearly doubled from 2012 to 2013 because of activity in the Utica shale play, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources reports.

In fact, history was made with a 97-percent increase in natural-gas production; 100 billion cubic feet of gas was produced in both the Utica and Marcellus shales, ODNR officials say.

In addition, 3.6 million barrels of oil were produced — increasing production in Ohio by 62 percent over 2012.

ODNR released the data Wednesday on 352 horizontal shale wells that reported production in 2013 at Stark State College at the State of Play discussion.

“The Utica play is the real deal,” ODNR Director James Zehringer said there.

To compare, the Utica shale produced 12 percent of the oil production last year but 45 percent this year.

The gas production in the Utica was equivalent to about 16 percent of the state’s gas production, and this year it is at least 58 percent if not 62 percent, Richard Simmers of ODNR Division of Oil and Gas Resources Management said at the discussion.
