It seems Adameck#1 is on hold and has been put on "Inactive" status at the DEP. A dispute between the driller of the well, Utica Reources and the owner of the well, Indepth Exploration has placed a hold on that well.
SLC Energy a gas and oil company with connections in California and Nevada, www.slcenergy.com has posted on their web site a list of projects, Adameck#2,3,4,5, Afton 1,2,3,Chylinski 2,3,4,May 1, Hinkler1 and Turner 1
these projects are in Greenfield, Venango and Greene Township, Erie, County,Pa., so far no permits have been issued. The results of the testing by Weatherford have given the participants in this activity a reason to move forward with plans to lease more land in this area and looks like plans to drill more wells are in the works.
Our group who own 270 acres at Phillipsville Rd., and Page Road in Wattsburg are watching with interest the new activity. EmKey Energy,LLC a local Erie company purchased $34 million dollars of the Norse Companies distribution lines along with natural gas properties and purchased the gas lease on our property along with 20+
properties in the Wattsburg area. EmKey is a midstream gas distribution company that owns natural gas properties and leases and builds natural gas distribution lines in New York and Pennsylvania.
This new activity seems to be the beginning of the development of the Utica and Upper Devonian play that lies beneath Erie County. The new Erie Port project planned by the Erie County Economic Development will play a major role in expanding the shipping of natural gas and byproducts to the large eastern markets and overseas.
A major part of that expansion will happen in Erie County, Pa.

"Utica Shale will be the largest oil and gas discovery in American History. All major oil and gas companies have come together for the first time in many decades to develop the largest rock formation known in America."
"Industry Partners on the Adameck Prospect #1This is a multi-zone program that was developed in the NW
part of PA. This is the most active leasing and drilling are in the US. Several major oil and gas companies are in this area to develop the Marcellus Shale and Utica Shale."
"The Adameck #1 multi-zone project was developed by Indepths Partner in PA, Utica Resourses.........
Experts believe there are Trillions of Cubic Feet of Gas and Billions of barrels of oil in the Utica Shale and
Utica Resourses is actively leasing acreage in NW PA for future drilling programs............"
"Indepth Exploration industry partner is Utica Resources and they are actively leasing acreage in NW
PA for Utica Shale drilling programs. Utica Resourses is a longtime PA oil and gas operator with vast experience in Operations, Drilling and Leasehold acquisition. Our first well, the Adameck #1 will be drilled in
Erie County, PA to test several zones."
So far I have not seen any horizontal well permits for Erie Co. The nearest activity is in Crawford Co. with 3 wells being developed around Pymatuning lake/ Cochranton area.
