Attached map shows well locations and well types for several eastern Ohio counties. The map index allows you to select different counties, townships and well types; you can zoom in and out to change your viewing altitude; you can get well information by positioning you mouse over the well pin; newer wells (after 6/10) are identified with red pins, larger red pins identify likely Utica wells.
To view this map you need the latest version Google Earth viewer. The free viewer can be downloaded at: http://www.google.com/earth Google limits the number of concurrent data points/well locations - if you open more than three counties at once some data points may disappear.
The map shows some interesting patterns. The high density green pin areas are likely good areas for Clinton wells... will these be Goldilocks areas for the Utica wells? Most of the black hole zones are likely due to poor producing wells and most of the current Utica wells are located in these areas... do the geologist see these areas as good areas or is it simply that they were available for drilling?
I’d would be very interested in hearing back what others observe, theorize from the maps or know from experience or hear-say.
I just found this today, thanks for posting. Is it a good thing to be right next to an existing pipeline? Our land sits right on top of a red dot, which is at the end of a red pipeline. Good or bad?
I am not seeing the red dot. What are the coordinates of the red dot?
It's in Stone Creek Ohio, Tuscarawas County. The map is fuzzy but I have other maps that show we are RIGHT near there. Coordinates appear to be 40 23' 18.73"N and 81 34' 10.68" W Or, smack in the center of Jefferson TWP in Tusc. Co.
According to the map it looks like a distribution point. The location is not very accurate. It is a very low resolution map.
I would say it is good to be near infrastructure. If you want to know more about gas pipelines, here is a very good article from the Argonne National Laboratory: http://corridoreis.anl.gov/documents/docs/technical/APT_61034_EVS_T...

Great job! Thank you!
Thank you BICS....Outstanding job!
You should check out the maps page over at mmlla.com/maps
They have a cool site and some good information. Their map uses google earth too.
I have added all of the current drilling units to BICS map.
