Attached maps allow you to view all active and permitted Ohio wells from different angles. You can select and view wells by county, township, operator or strata. Pin color identify different well types and age: green pins show older production wells; lite green pins show domestic wells; yellow pins show either gas injection or waste injection wells; bright red show wells drilled or permitted within the last 90 days; dark red pins show well permitted or drilled within the last 6 months. Well information is viewable by clicking the pin and links within the prompts show well production history.
If you want to see just Utica wells use the ByStrata map and select Utica. If you interested in viewing new well activity open any of the maps and look for the lite and dark red pins.
I was updating these maps in a prior post 'Eastern Ohio well maps via Google Earth' but it was getting very long and disordered so I decided to restart a new thread. All the well data is current, I’ll update them monthly or more frequently depending on feedback.
You can load multiple map files on your PC concurrently. Once one or more files are loaded, you can turn on the areas of interest by clicking the sections in the index on the left side of the view.
I also included some of Philip Brutz's overlay maps. You can open and view these maps along with the well maps to see well location relative to geology aspects.
To view these maps you need the latest version Google Earth viewer. The free viewer can be downloaded at: http://www.google.com/earth
You are welcome to use these maps make you own edits and repost.

I hear people talk about this well or that well being a test well. If so are they just verticals? I suspect to some degree they are all test ones but is there really a difference? Is there enough data to specifically ignore some areas for leasing (such as some of Adams, Center, Green, Salem) or do the co.s just have enough money tied up right now?
Following Utica map reflects current ODNR spreedsheet Utica wells. I also added SGJ findings to the map. These additional wells can be identified by their well formation description, text will show 'likely Utica' rather then 'Utica'.
SGJ, appreciate your findings, please continue to add any additions to this post. I hope to update the code in the near future to find these automatically... I am currently behind on another project so have had little time for hobbies.
