Utica shale well tests 9.2 MMcfd in Pennsylvania

By OGJ editors

Rex Energy Corp., State College, Pa., said its initial horizontal Utica shale well stabilized at 9.2 MMcfd of dry natural gas and should begin flowing to sales in January 2012.

The Cheeseman-1H, north of Pittsburgh in Muddy Creek township of Butler County, Pa., had 12 frac stimulation stages in a 3,551-ft lateral.

Encouraged by the results, Rex Energy will drill and complete more Utica shale wells in Butler County in 2012.

Meanwhile, Rex Energy has closed on its 11,000-acre position known as the Warrior prospect in Carroll County, Ohio, which is prospective for the liquids portion of the Utica shale. The company continues to lease and targets 15,000 committed acres by the end of 2011.

Rex Energy recently secured 15 MMcfd of firm capacity at Dominion’s Natrium processing facility set to be commissioned in December 2012. Until commissioning, Rex will have the ability to receive interruptible service for natural gas liquids uplift through processing at Dominion’s Hastings extraction/fractionation plant.
