Cabot Oil & Gas plans to drill two more exploratory wells in north-central Ohio, adding to the three it has already drilled, before the end of the year, according to Kallanish Energy.

Although it is unclear where the company will drill its fourth and fifth wells, its interested in the Knox formation in Ashland, Richland, Holmes, Wayne and Knox counties at the western edge of Ohio’s Utica Shale. That formation is below the Utica and is north and west of Ohio’s main Utica drilling area.

The company’s three drilled wells are located in Green, Vermilion and Mohican townships in Ashland County.
