2 laterals were drilled. 1H went north towards Tennessee Gas and 5H went South towards Mercer. Should start fracking soon.

The rig at zigo is done and mostly gone. I don't know how many holes were bored but there done for now

Comment by JohnL on March 7, 2015 at 7:20pm
Looks like Hilcorp is ready to start laying the pipeline to the Zigo pad. The Horizontal rig was still running there the last time I went past.

Patience. Gluts turn into shortages and shortages turn into gluts. As drilling/fracking technology gets better the Utica will get better. The O&G companies don't have the Utica shale figured out yet. The Barnett shale in Texas had poor well results early but got much better over time,.Finally in just a few years the USA will be sending LNG across the pond which should increase demand.

Hilcorp also pulled the Worth Click permit.

Let's hope Gov. Wolf doesn't screw up the Shell cracker plant. It might be our only hope for more drilling in Mercer county. His severance/well head tax might be enough to kill it.

Crude Oil to drop to $20/Barrel ??   Good article in today's Sharon Herald (page 7). Some experts predict Crude could drop to $20 a barrel due to the fact US production and imports are storing a million barrels a day more than we can consume. US supplies are at their highest point in at least 80 years. Storage tanks are filling up fast. 

     I don't think this good for Mercer county drilling if their predictions are true. We could see drilling come to an abrupt halt.

Just got word they withdrawn the permits for the Novick pad in Stoneboro..
Comment by JohnL on March 4, 2015 at 9:10am
Don't be surprised if Hilcorp allows the leases to expire only to come back at a later date and quietly re-lease areas that they are still interested in drilling at a lower bonus/percent. Rumor has it that Chevron and Hilcorp are working together which means they will only need to fill in leases they need.

Chances of being resigned are growing slimmmer by the day! The Saudis are deliberately destroying the shale gas/oil business in this country.
