Antero plans to complete 110 wells in Utica and Marcellus shale plays

Colorado-based Antero Resources intends to complete 110 horizontal shale wells in the Utica and Marcellus region in 2016, reports the Akron Beacon Journal. That includes 30 wells in eastern Ohio and 80 in northern West Virginia, the newspaper says, citing a new report from the company. Antero also said it will operate seven drilling rigs in Ohio and West Virginia in 2016, down from the 14 that operated in those states in 2015.
