Seneca hooking up Lycoming Marcellus completions

Seneca Resources Corp., Williamsville, NY, expects to have 15 wells Marcellus shale wells producing into the Trout Run Gathering System in Lycoming County, Pa., by the end of January, including six wells on which it reported completion Jan. 22, said its parent National Fuel Gas Co.

The six wells, on a single pad, had 24-hr peak production rates averaging 17.8 MMcfd, five of which represent the highest peak production rates of any wells operated by Seneca in the Marcellus. The wells have treatable lateral lengths of 4,292 to 5,101 ft and were completed with 14 to 18 frac stages per well.

Three wells had peak production rates above 20 MMcfd, and all six reached a combined 24-hr peak production rate of 107 MMcfd. The wells represent some of the most productive ever drilled in the Marcellus by any operator, Seneca said.

Seneca is running two drilling rigs Lycoming County and does not have the production infrastructure constraints that face many other Marcellus operators.

Sixteen other wells on the DCNR 100 tract will be completed this fiscal year and 25 more in fiscal 2014, the company said.
