No idea if Blackbrush is 100% on this or has partner
Considering Blackbrush's Texas AC operations, they could very well be investing on their own. Their prior experience would seem to indicate they do not need a partner from an operational aspect. If the LA AC follows the pattern of other unconventional basins, many smaller companies will have the opportunity to acquire acreage. If the play is economic, larger energy companies will buy out and consolidate the proven acreage over time. The Haynesville Shale in the early days had well over twenty companies drilling exploration wells. Now there are about ten that control the majority of the proven acreage and the LA side of the play may very well see further consolidation in the next few years.
Black Brush has workover rig on site...
Any other significant equipment?
Or just the rig?
Rock Man, I heard BB changing pipe out...different pipe before actual frack.
Moving values on flat bed to BlackBrush site yesterday.
Yes, sorry about spelling.
RockMan, they have everything , start this week on fracking,,,,hopefully...
Looks like today (Monday, 4/16) is the day.
FRAC WELL BOTTOM PERF: 15930', TOP PERF 14720' 9 STAGES 427,500 LBS/STAGE FRAC DATE: 4/16/2018
Note this earlier posting from last week / problems with the casing
4 1/2" CSG. PARTED AT 6250' WHILE TESTING. WILL MOVE IN WORKOVER RIG AND PULL 6250'. WILL BACK OFF ADDITIONAL CSG @ 10,800' & PULL. WILL REPLACE W/ NEW STRING 4 1/2 15.10# P110 CASING AND TEST.
With the frac, have to assume they fixed the problem. But a lot more $$$$$$ spent to correct casing problem.
Based on the frac data posted, this is a very SMALL test. Only 1660' of the lateral being stimulated in the 9 intervals (about 184' per completion stage).
Proppant volume post is ultra small - only 258# per treated foot. Based on the info in the 20+ well summary I posted a few weeks ago, Operators in C Tx were pumping over 2400 pounds per treated foot (in the average) in their AC hz frac laterals.
I cannot find any info on EOG volumes in Avoyelles Parish but I would bet it is in the 2000+ pound range.
BB wells will be limited as to frac volume due to small casing size - just basic physics as what can be done with smaller diameter pipe.
We only get small summaries of info on SONRIS - I am hoping that the small frac volume on the BB is not tied to a failure of the casing during frac operations.
All this being said - I would caution all to temper their expectations as to post frac testing results on this well. A rule of thumb would be to look at the frac being only about 10 to 20% of the size of the fracs that are normally put on the AC.
So should post frac production be equally reduced?
I know that this is not a one to one comparison (frac approach to production results), but it does give one a reference point as to expectations in this wellbore.
Just my opinion on all this.
RM, wouldn't the frac stages be 134" (15930 - 14720 = 1210'/9 = 134.44'). If 427,500# is pumped per stage and a stage is 134', that would be about 3190# of proppant per linear foot of perforated lateral. Please check my math.
