The report lists 2,523 horizontal shale wells, 2,452 of which reported oil and natural gas production during the quarter. Of the wells reporting oil and natural gas results:

*The average amount of oil produced per well was 2,774 barrels.

*The average amount of natural gas produced per well was 279,270 Mcf.

Although Encino Energy does not have any rigs in Carroll County at the present time, the company is ramping up  plans to develop additional well pads in the county this year. 

ODNR issued Encino two permits for two wells on the Williams Pad in Union Twp. last week.

The company also signed  road use maintenance agreements (RUMAs) for a pad on the Hawk property in Augusta Twp. and one for the Bower well site in Perry Twp.
