Eclipse lists production from wells in Monroe, Harrison counties


STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Eclipse Resources Corporation recently released production figures from two of the company’s pad locations consisting of a total of seven Utica Shale wells.

The sites produced an early production total combined rate of 52.6 MMcf/d of natural gas and 1.8 MBbl/d of condensate.

Monroe County

The Shroyer well pad in eastern Monroe County, Ohio is currently producing into sales at a combined rate of 42.5 MMcf/d with average casing pressure of 6,545 psi.

Based on composition analysis, the gas being produced is approximately 1,034 BTU gas.

The Shroyer pad consists of two Utica Shale wells with average lateral lengths of 7,819 feet. The wells have been flowing into sales for approximately 10 and 20 days, as of Sept. 3.

Harrison County

The second well pad is the Mizer pad in central Harrison County, Ohio. The Mizer pad consists of five Utica Shale wells, which are currently producing into sales at a combined rate of 10.1 MMcf/d of natural gas and approximately 1,800 Bbl/d of condensate (176 Bbl/MMcf of condensate yield).

As water rates continue to decline and the Mizer wells clean up, Eclipse Resources expects the production rates to further increase.

Based on composition analysis, the gas being produced from the Mizer pad is 1,330 BTU gas.

Eclipse Resources anticipates, based on its contractual 30% ethane recovery, the gas composition to produce an additional 90 Bbl/MMcf of natural gas liquids and result in a natural gas shrink of approximately 15 percent.

The Mizer wells have been into sales for approximately two to 13 days, as of Sept. 3.

According to Benjamin Hulburt, Eclipse president and CEO, the Shroyer wells are the company’s longest laterals to date.

“Additionally, the Mizer wells are our first operated wells in our Condensate type curve area, and we are pleased to see that they are producing at higher initial liquids yields than we expected.”

Condensate facilities

In advance of putting the Mizer pad to sales, Eclipse Resources entered into an agreement with EnLink Midstream Operating for the operation of the company’s condensate stabilization facilities.

Under the terms of the agreement, EnLink will purchase two of Eclipse’s existing condensate stabilization facilities, as well as construct additional facilities to support the company’s drilling program in the Utica.
