Both Zigo wells just came on line in August. The decline curve for Utica wells is pretty steep so I doubt it will last. It's hard to tell by the reports if these wells are choked back or not. I would expect things to remain quiet for a while. Hilcorp is privately held so information about their plans is hard to come by. They are still recording new leases near the Zigo well, so they must be satisfied with what they found. Only time will tell.

I see Hilcorp and probably the rest of the companies are taking a break on any new drilling, even with permits to drill.  The Zigo wells seem to be producing decent with permits for at least two more and no drilling!!  I would think until prices go up drilling will stop??

Comment by Lilly yesterday

Thank you!!  I see some of them are doing fairly well.  To bad the price of gas is so low.  This may put a halt to drilling anymore of even the permitted wells!!  Time will tell I guess!!

Comment by JohnL on Sunday
Lilly- you can find that information on the website below or on the DEP website. There are several wells in production in Mercer County and others that are fracked and waiting to come online.
Comment by Lilly on Friday

Are any of the latest wells producing in Mercer County?  Don't hear much of anything anymore!

Comment by JohnL on November 7, 2015 at 10:42am
Typically these wells run NW/SE which would put these Rt.19 leases on the wrong side of Jorgensen. I'm thinking there may be a new pad between Rt.19 and Rt.58. Somewhere East of Zigo. At the rate of drilling in Mercer County it may be 5+ years from now. I heard Hilcorp was waiting on the results from the Zigo wells before moving ahead with the Jorgensen pad.

Jorgensen well pad close if not on Cornell road.

Comment by WTF on November 6, 2015 at 3:32pm

John, I have not heard anything but I think Hilcorp surveyed for a well on Cornell road a couple of years ago. It is located just West of the airport road on Cornell.
