PITTSBURGH — The ability to drill in not just one shale play but in multiple levels of shale rock from a single well pad stands to increase oil and gas production across Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, executives say.
“There’s several advantages to the stacked plays,” reported Tim Dugan, chief operating officer at Consol Energy Inc., here. “It enhances the economics and improves the rate of return.”
Dugan was among a host of speakers Wednesday at the 2014 DUG East Conference, sponsored by Hart Energy, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center downtown.
