PITTSBURGH—Rex Energy says it's completed a Utica Shale natural gas well in western Pennsylvania and is encouraged by the results.
The Utica Shale is a mineral formation that lies below the Marcellus Shale, thousands of feet underground. Some gas drilling companies believe the Utica formation may be productive in Pennsylvania but they haven't had much proof.

Rex Energy, based in State College, says in a statement Tuesday that its first Utica well was drilled in Butler County, about 40 miles north of Pittsburgh. The horizontal well produced an average of 9.2 million cubic feet of dry gas per day during tests.

Rex says the well is currently shut and will go into production in January. The company says it plans more Utica Shale wells in Butler next year.
