Antero Resources released an operations update for the second quarter of 2015–and what a great update! Antero reports hitting a net daily production of 1,484 million cubic feet equivalent per day (or 1.5 billion cubic feet/day) in 2Q15–a 67% increase over 2Q14. During the last three months Antero drilled and completed 13 Marcellus Shale wells with an average lateral distance of 8,300 feet, and 10 Utica Shale wells with an average lateral of 10,600 feet.
