There seems to be some progress in drilling in Stark County Ohio. Seems most wells being drilled are vert. wells going into the Clinton formation. Any insiders know what the plans are? Are these test wells or maybe wells that will turn into hort. wells in the Clinton formation. Has anyone heard what the production of these new wells are? Just wondering here in Stark County.
I t seems like no one knows anything about Stark County. At least no one is posting anything. I see a lot about the southern part of the Utica and also about the northern part, but no one is commenting on the central part????
Iam invlolved in a lease on the western edge of carroll county about 5 miles south of stark county .....2 years ago CHK built a pad fenced it in built a road of stone to it then put it on hold ...........it has just set there ever since then ........when contacting CHK all they will say is the whole area is on hold ......the same thing happened to a pad just outside of magnolia right on the stark county line
That is what CHK told me back in 2012 when they were going to put a pad on my farm. There was a section of unleased land about 5 acres just east of where the pad was going to be by about 300 feet. I purchased the land when it came up for sale and contacted CHK and they told me the area was on hold and were not interested in leasing this 5 acres. I wonder if it is on hold because most of the land is HBP or because back in 2010 most people signed 10 years leases with CHK. Maybe a combination of the two. Who knows. No one ever talks about the central Utica and it is all so quite. I guess in my mind central Utica could be the sleeping giant.
I AGREE DAVID BE AWFUL FUNNY IF THE FORMATION SO GOOD IN EASTERN CARROLL COUNTY AND IT JUST STOPPED BEING GOOD IN WESTERN CARROLL AND STARK AND TUSC COUNTIES .....WHERE THE MAPS SHOW THE OIL WINDOW
I just drove by a new drilling rig off of Parks Ave. in Nimishellen Twp Stark County Ohio. The sign says Enverest Operations. It is the Lautzenheiser 1H well. The rig does not look like the big Utica rig. Could the be a hort. well in the Clinton formation? Anyone have any information on this well?
I think if it has an H in the number, than it means horizontal. They usually have to bring in a smaller rig to drill the vertical hole.
Yes, it's a horizontal Clinton well. Tiny unit, very short lateral. Interested to see if the results defy the illogical cost outlay.
I was told on another posting enervest had drill a horizonal clinton in northwest carroll and the rig was moved to stark county off georgetown road is this close to georgetown road if so it could be a clinton
Yes, it is about a mile north of Georgetown Rd. I also notice that Enervest is making a pad on Beech St almost at the corner of Paris Rd. Looks like Enervest is interested in Stark County and the Clinton
just checked the utica permit map and there are no utica permita issued in that area
