As the result of my conversations with people in the industry and reviewing company reports, there appears a very positive attitude toward drilling in Ohio. The mix of oil and wet gas liquids is very good. From Chesapeake to Gulfport to PDC to Antero Resources to CNX, all their wells are producing a high to very high yields. I look 2013 to be a year of active drilling in Ohio. I encourage companies still evaluating the industry to jump in. The “early movers” tend be the most successful companies. Look at all the PA companies that are in OH.
