There is a pad under preparation on a farm near there which is clearly visible from the highway, however the seam to be drilled for isn't known.
Looked at the DEP web site today appears that the well on rt. 208 in the Marbel area is being drilled by Pa. general energy from Warren. Well is not listed as a Marcellus but is listed for a lateral, looks like well is to be drilled to a deph of 5400 ft. Is that deep enough for a utica well?
"DEP issued a permit to Pennsylvania General Energy for the Ziegler 2527 well on Feb. 7. Drilling began on the site just off State Route 208 in the southern end of Washington Township a week later.
But drilling was stopped and the well abandoned and sealed, according to DEP spokesperson Freda Tarbell, when drillers ran into excessive amounts of water in the Onandaga formation, just below the Marcellus and above the Oriskany."
