As expected, this well (#241491 S8-T13N-R7W) has been hooked up to the new pipeline.
COMPLETED 10-6-11; GAS; CV RA; 10,026 MCFD; 59/64 CHOKE; 67 BWD; 5300# FP; 6825# CP; PERFS 11,599-15,394' MD
Note the wide-open choke. Maybe we'll get the IP's on the other two nearby CHK wells within a couple of months, which are padded in sec 17 and sec 20 . . . and was told the Red Adair crew has departed, having done all they could on the hung-up pipe via:
|242011||HA RA SUG;GUIN 20-13-7 H
And so now with a pipeline in place to develop these Ashland units -- the question is: "What will happen next?"
Anybody know why this well has such an open choke?
I don't know, Highwayman. Maybe Les B. would know.
But if I were to guess, it might be because that new pipeline, put in just for these three wells so far -- ain't got that much pressure/gas flowing into it yet per the other two wells not even having IP's (as of yet). But hey, I could be wrong.
Highwayman, I do not have a good explanation as the flowing pressure (5300 psi) looks high for such a large choke size. It could be there is some type of flow restriction downstream of the choke that is causing a high line pressure and requiring a large choke size. It is also possible the choke size is a misprint.
The well was completed with 11 frac stages.
How do the wells appear to be doing? Just thought I would ask. Maybe more information is posted about these at the preset time.
