An Investors Guide to the Drilling Boom • Dozens of public and private exploration and production companies have acquired acreage that’s prospective for the Utica Shale. • Not all top acreage holders offer the same investment focus on the Utica. • Only a handful of companies are really levered to the play and therefore offer the most upside to investors.
