Eleven ‘Super-Lateral’ Wells for East Ohio

After drilling its 3.5-mile-long “Purple Hayes” well last year, Eclipse Resources now plans to bore 11 additional horizontal wells this year, each of which will stretch at least three miles from their points of entry into the earth.

In horizontal Marcellus and Utica shale drilling, contractors initially drill vertically to a certain depth in the earth, typically at least one mile beneath the surface. Drillers then bore outward horizontally from this position.

The 11 Eclipse “super-lateral” wells will stretch horizontally in the firm’s eastern Ohio operations, which include portions of Monroe, Belmont, Guernsey and Noble counties.
