Artex Energy Group LLC is a privately-owned, pure-play Utica Shale exploration and production company operating in eastern Ohio. Our approach is geologically-driven and technology-based.
We own and operate over 200,000 net leasehold acres and six horizontal Utica Shale wells. We have over 470 square miles of 3D seismic and over 1,000 miles of 2D seismic.
We also own non-operating working interests in Utica Shale wells in Noble County, Ohio operated by Antero Resources.
In 2011, we entered into an industry joint venture with a major independent oil company to develop our Utica Shale leasehold rights. Together we drilled seven horizontal Utica Shale wells, collected significant scientific data, and acquired additional leasehold interests in Eastern Ohio. We unwound the industry joint venture in late 2014. In 2019, Artex began preparing for the drilling of new wells within our core acreage using our geologically-driven approach.
