NGI's Shale Daily is reporting that the monthly drilling productivity report issued by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) will soon include oil and natural gas production from 20 Ohio counties: "The EIA said its preliminary estimate for July Utica natural gas production is about 1 Bcf/d, which is small in comparison to six of the nation's other leading gas fields already included in the report. But in announcing its decision to add the formation to its DPR, EIA said natural gas production from the Utica is on par with the growth in the Eagle Ford Shale of Texas when comparing the first 20 months of activity in both plays. *** Moreover, the agency said the level of Utica production is slightly higher than production from the Haynesville formation in Louisiana at its 20-month mark of activity." (Emphasis is ours.)
