According to a ODNR person I spoke with this week, they are waiting for 1 companies production #'s to be submitted before releasing 2018 1st quarter well production list.   We briefly spoke about the possibility of using automated digital well readers on new wells.  If interested, research Ohio house bills the will be presented to help address this question.  This will speed up the posting of the list and maybe keep the producers honest with their quarterly #'s....hopefully!

Drilling has almost come to a halt in the wet gas window of the county (western Harrison) with the exception of Ascent. Most active drillers are south and east of Harrison drilling dry gas wells and trying to get all of their leased land HPB before leases expire or renew. Here is a nice update on NGL prices and what may eventually bring them back to fill out their drilling pads

Salt Fork paid the neighbors in Short Creek 5500 and 18% for a 5 year lease.
I get a bit wary anytime a company offers a 1 or 2 year lease. Usually means they have drilling plans in the near future.

Does anyone know the going lease rate per acre and royalty % for Harrison County?  We've been contacted by DPS offering $1500/acre, 15%, 2 year primary term with option to renew another 2 years. Term seems short and offer low.  I checked uslandrecords: Chesapeake has filed leases in German and Archer since Jan 1.  Salt Fork resources has filed leases in Short Creek and Green.  Typical term is 5 yrs with option to renew another 5.  Are there any active landowner groups in the area?

I saw this link on another thread and thought everyone might find it interesting.

The E.I.A. released the monthly production report today. The information is not as informative as before, when the Utica Play was listed separately. The Utica and Marcellus are now combined into the Appalachian region. There's a lot of info here if you open the different tabs.

The Ohio DNR released the 4th qtr. production results today. See the link

Dan,  It appears as though the per unit prices are close.  I think it unreasonable that there would be reductions carried forward from 2 to 3 years ago!

Comment by Dan on March 5, 2018 at 5:12pm

Al, I crunched through my numbers.

My February check averages per acre, $53 for oil, $1.49 gas, and $14.48 per barrel of NGL.

One caveat though is that while the report is basically for production in December of 2017, it has many entries for oil that are negative volumes, and those are for months back in 2015.  Those negative volumes skew the average on the oil price (besides lowering my royalty check!)

By the way, overall my drilling units per acre produced of 84 barrels of oil, 3700 MCF gas, and 416 barrels of NGLs for that December 2017 period.  (That's not my portion, that's the entire production for the units for that period.)

Then as I mentioned, CHK is also showing negative 27 barrels of oil per acre for the year 2015, which I admittedly don't fully understand, but assume it is supposed to be some sort of correction.  If anyone understands what these negative barrels mean, please share.
