Rex Energy drills first Utica Shale well in W. Pa. | Press & Sun-Bulletin | pressconnects.com.

Comment from Chip Northrup, retired oil/gas professional:
Sounds like a good well  – but sometimes they report the spikes – not a 3+ day average. 

The Utica is productive in Ohio – as wet gas (propane) oily shale =- high carbon content


It may be high carbon content in Western Pa. = the way the Marcellus is 

In NY, both the Marcellus and Utica are more likely drier gas – less valuable methane. 

And probably less productive as you go north of I 88 and N west of the Susquehanna

Utica test wells in NY (Otsego Co)  have not shown much potential.
