    1. Utica Shale Development: How do early-stage characteristics equate to other North American shale plays? Analysts say that the Utica Shale, which is nearly equal to the size of the Eagle Ford play in Texas could become the third-largest shale play in the United States, producing as much as 250,000 to 500,000 barrels of oil a day.
    2. USGS says Utica Shale development could require 127,500 wells
      The drilling and oilfield services industry should be pleased with the first assessment of oil and gas reserves in the Utica Shale play by the US Geological Survey, which indicates that extraction of the reserves would take approximately 110,000 wells in the gas window and another 17,500 wells in the oil window.
    3. IHS: Too early to determine ‘sweet spots,’ but Utica Shale important US liquids-rich resource
      According to a recent report from IHS, a global source of information and analytics, although it is still premature to conclude that the Utica/Point Pleasant Shale play in Ohio and western Pennsylvania will be as productive as the Eagle Ford Shale in Texas, the Utica is in many ways analogous to the Eagle Ford and early drilling results are encouraging.
    4. JOBS Act of 2012 offers provisions to promote oil and gas company growth
