Shell has made a pair of gas discoveries within its Utica formation in Tioga County in Pennsylvania, US.

The Gee well had “an initial flowback rate” of 11.2 million cubic feet of natural gas per day while the Neal find has a “peak flowback rate” of 26.5 million cubic feet of natural gas per day, the company said.

Marvin Odum, Shell’s Upstream Americas Director said: “This successful discovery is the result of solid technical work in our onshore business… These two high-pressure wells both exhibit exceptional reservoir quality.”

Shell is currently awaiting results from four additional Utica wells.
