MDN Exclusive Analysis of Ohio’s 2015 & 4Q15 Shale Production

ODRNAs MDN previously reported, as of the third quarter 2015 Ohio’s oil and natural gas production from shale deposits had already surpassed production for all of 2014 (see OH Shale Wells Already Smash 2014 Record, 3Q15 Results). The Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources (ODNR) recently issued production numbers for the fourth quarter of 2015, as well as reporting on the entire year. Ohio’s oil production from shale in 2015 doubled over 2014–up 99.9%. Ohio’s natural gas production in 2015 more than doubled, up 110% over 2014. Below we have the ODNR’s high level overview of the numbers, along with MDN’s own exclusive analysis showing: the top 25 producing gas wells, the top 25 producing oil wells, and then the top 25 gas and oil wells as ranked by average production per day. There is a difference! The longer an oil or gas well is online, the less it produces. Newer wells produce more. So we show you which wells are not just producing the most quantity overall, but which wells are producing at the fastest (most productive) rates–even if they haven’t yet been online a full three months. We also include a link to the complete list of 1,265 wells that had at least some Utica oil or gas production in 4Q15, in a more usable format than that provided by the ODNR
