Ohio: Gulfport drills record length Utica shale wells

By OGJ editors

Gulfport Energy Corp., Oklahoma City, said two of its Utica shale wells represent the longest laterals and longest measured depth wells ever drilled in Ohio.

The record wells are the Boy Scout 1-33H and Wagner 1-28H, in Harrison County, two of the company’s first three horizontal wells in the play.

Wagner 1-28H encountered an average vertical thickness of 123 ft in the Point Pleasant member of Utica, has been successfully completed with a 28-stage hydraulic frac, and is in a 60-day resting period prior to testing and flowing.

The Boy Scout 1-33H, under frac in early June, was drilled to a true vertical depth of 7,704 ft with a 7,974-ft horizontal lateral and encountered an average vertical thickness of 126 ft in Point Pleasant.

The Groh 1-12H, awaiting completion in Guernsey County, was drilled to 7,327 ft true vertical depth with a 5,414-ft horizontal lateral and encountered an average vertical thickness of 119 ft in Point Pleasant.

Gulfport is drilling its fourth and fifth horizontal wells of 2012, Shugert 1-1H and Shugert 1-12H in Belmont County, in the play, where it holds 62,500 net acres.
