NY okays hydrofracking in Otsego County

New York okays hydrofracking 2 wells in Otsego County.

The New York State DEC has authorized Gastem USA, a Montreal based company, to hydraulically fracture the Marcellus shale formation in the Ross-1 well in Maryland, NY and the Sheckells-1 well, located in Cherry Valley, in the Trenton Black River Formation/Utica shale.

Gastem has an 80% working interest in more than 33,000 acres of leases, primarily in Otsego County, and is operator of the project. The frac treatments will test and evaluate the production potential of these zones in the two wells, which previously had only stimulated the Lower Utica shale section.
Consulting engineers estimated 145 bcf/sq mile of gas in place for the Utica and Marcellus formations based on core data from the Ross-1 well at 50% probability. The report does not cover the Oneida sands, a conventional formation that lies between the Marcellus and Utica and is reported to look very promising as well.

Gastem said it expects to test and evaluate the Oneida formation shortly.

There are additional small frac jobs on vertical wells. These wells had already had frac jobs at other intervals. This would normally not attract much attention, but is now considered good news in light of the anti-frac legislative actions in the senate.
