I drive all thru the wv northern panhandle..middle of wv..and the best counties in ohio for work.
I also own land in wetzel and tyler county..80 acres.
From what i see it looks like they started around the best roads..i70..rt 7 and 2 along the river..rt 50 from parkersburg to clarksburg. And lesser roads in good condition. As they run out they will start moving to the hard to reach places. The reason we purchased our land was for hunting...very remote. Bad roads. Bridges. And .harder to move water and sand. Also the lack of gathering.
I saw antero working from rt 50 north and south. It looks like there moving north. We leased with them to install 4 lines and 1 water 2500 ft. They plan to install 2 and water this fall. We are located in the 1250 to 1275 btu area of wet.
