SUGAR LAND, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Higher crude-oil prices and a recovery in natural gas prices are driving a surge in Oil & Gas Production in Ohio's Utica Shale. Aubrey McClendon's new company has bought more than $3.5 billion of acreage in that formation since last October. McClendon's former company, Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK) (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma), declared the Utica its next world-class asset. These moves come as other players, like BP plc (NYSE:BP) (London, England) and Halcon Resources (NYSE:HK) (Dallas, Texas), are exiting the Utica.
