Published on

Preview pages for the Marcellus and Utica Shale Databook 2013, Volume 1. This first volume (of three) features 62 detailed maps showing where Marcellus & Utica Shale well permits have been issued throughout PA, OH and WV for January through April of 2013. Each detail map shows major natural gas pipelines, the location of compressor stations, and the locations for each permit issued appended with the driller's name. A wet gas/dry gas boundary map is also included to easily identify those locations more likely to attract drilling in the near future. Volume 1 also contains a directory of driller contact names, addresses and phone numbers for the 70 active drillers of the Marcellus/Utica. Plus more!

  5. 5. ©Marcellus and Utica Shale Databook 2013 – Volume 1 Sample PagesDRILLING UPDATE: JAN-APR 2013Section I - OverviewPermit Trends in the Marcellus & Utica Shale RegionWith this, the fourth edition of the Marcellus and Utica Shale Databook series (the first of the 2013 editions), we’ve now built up permit analysis forthe past nearly 2 ½ years—all of 2011, all of 2012 and the first four months of 2013. We thought it would be interesting to show the trends over thepast two years and project where we believe permits may go in 2013.The permit analysis for 2011 and 2012 is based on the number of what we call unique permits—discrete wells. Depending on the state, each stage ofdrilling requires a number of permits as different parts of the process are permissioned, then completed and reviewed. The Databook’s “unique”permit number means strip away all of the multiple permits for a single well and count each well once. To be fair, some “single” wells will receive apermits in more than one period of time—so the same well may be counted in both 2011 and 2012, for example it may have been started in 2011 butcompleted in 2012 (counted once in each calendar year). We believe such “double counting” across years is negligible in the final numbers. However,you should be aware of it.Our estimate for 2013 is crude, but we think, useful. We looked at the number of unique permits issued for the first four months of 2013 andassumed the rest of the year would have the same activity, percentage wise, as the first four months. So we simply multiplied the numbers forJanuary through April by 3 to come up with an estimate for the entire year. Our sense, in reviewing the result, is that for those counties with the mostdrilling activity, the numbers are likely estimated too high by some factor (maybe 10-20%), and for those with really low or now activity in the firstfour months, the yearly estimate is too low.That’s a weakness in this rather simplistic estimate. However,as we’ve said, we believe it can be useful, taken with hardnumbers for 2011 and 2012 for spotting those counties whereactivity is either going up or going down.The chart to the right shows the aggregate across all countiesby state, to give you an overall sense of where permits areheaded. We believe permits are heading up in both theMarcellus and Utica for 2013. The surprise is the potentialjump up in permits issued in West Virginia, a trend we believewill continue in 2013 and beyond due to wet gas in WV. Aftera softening in the PA Marcellus from 2011 to 2012, we believeit will either stay around the same level or increase slightly in2013. The Utica Shale continues to go up in 2013.The next two pages show permit numbers broken out bycounty within each state, with a nifty little trend indicator togive you a quick visual understanding of whether that countyis seeing an increase or decrease in permit activity.
  6. 6. ©Marcellus and Utica Shale Databook 2013 – Volume 1 Sample PagesREGULATORY/LEGAL UPDATEPennsylvaniaPermitting and drilling in Pennsylvania is regulated by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). A case before the PA SupremeCourt, Butler v Powers, was decided in April. It’s hard to overestimate the importance of this case. Pennsylvania has historically had a“different” take on natural gas rights from other states. Going all the way back to a case in 1882, PA has had “the Dunham rule” which separatesnatural gas rights from the broader concept of mineral rights. Natural gas rights are not automatically conveyed with mineral rights in PA. All ofthe existing leases are based on that concept. A case from Susquehanna County, PA challenged it seeking to make natural gas part of mineralrights. If that had happened, thousands of leases and the entire oil and gas industry would have been turned on its head with a myriad oflawsuits. The PA Supreme Court decided to leave things the way they are. A second very important case still sits with the Supreme Court (andhas since late last year)—a decision on whether or not PA’s new Act 13 oil and gas drilling regulations can impose a statewide zoning standardon all municipalities and supersede local zoning for oil and gas drilling. Local municipalities sued the state arguing “home rule” is best—theyknow where drilling should and should not happen. The state and drilling industry say it’s too easy for local town boards to be packed with twoor three individuals who oppose drilling for philosophical reasons and the standards established in Act 13 by the state has crafted are moreeven-handed and fair. Watch for this case to be settled sometime in 2013, likely before the next edition of the Databook due in September.OhioPermitting and drilling in Ohio is regulated by the Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). The big story on the regulatory front in Ohiocontinues to be taxes. Specifically, Gov. John Kasich (a Republican) introduced a plan to increase the severance tax in Ohio. He first submittedhis plan in 2012. The plan generated controversy with some—particularly in the drilling industry—who oppose it. Kasich’s fellow Republicans,who control the state legislature, successfully blocked the plan last year. However, Kasich reintroduced the plan in 2013. Although it appearedRepublicans might accede to Kasich’s wishes, that has not yet happened. It’s still anyone’s guess what will happen with the severance tax. Onthe regulation front, the ODNR has requested several non-budget items be re-included in the 2013 budget bill (items that were dropped alongwith the severance tax idea). The items they want added back include: requirement that drilling waste material not be sent to landfills untilradium levels are analyzed and the results sent to the Department of Health, the Ohio EPA and the landfill itself; the creation of a permittingprocess for treating brine waste before discharging it into the ground or bodies of water; the prohibition of hydraulic fracturing brine from useon roads to control ice or dust; and the requirement that all oil and gas contracts be filed with the county recorder’s office, the landowner,and/or the mineral interest owner within 30 days. No word yet on when/if/which of these items will be included in the 2013 budget bill.Section I - Overview
  7. 7. ©Marcellus and Utica Shale Databook 2013 – Volume 1 Sample PagesGUIDE TO USING THE COUNTY MAPSSection I - Overview#1 – The municipality oroperator name is followed by twosets of numbers, with the secondnumber in parentheses. Example:Jackson – 6 (4). The first number- “6” in this case - shows the totalnumber of permits issued. Thesecond number - “(4)” in this case- indicates how many wells thepermits were issued for. Usually asingle well requires severalpermits during drilling, to allowthe driller to continue to the nextstage.#2 – A purple dot indicateswhere a well pad is located. Eachwell pad can have from one to tenwells on it. Typically a pad willcontain 2-4 wells. Because of thesize of the maps (vastly reducedto show an entire county),sometimes the purple dots will be“on top of each other” andsometimes will not be labeledwith a driller’s name.#3 – The boundary of eachcounty is indicated with a blueoutline.#4 – Major gas pipelines areindicated with red lines and thename of the pipeline somewherealong the line.#5 – The location for pipelinecompressor stations is indicatedby a green triangle–the name isnext to it.
