Finally GoHaynesvilleShale is back! I really missed being able to ask questions and communication with others of similar interest.
I hope this quick note finds all of your family and yourself well.
My family received some very odd out of no where checks from Samsom. None of them made any sense as basically our interest are all the same and whether they are divided 3 or 4 ways total up to the same sum. The checks were all over the place and no way did the total equal up to the percentages equally. I was able to speak with a lady at Samsom but I might as well not have wasted my time as she couldn't understand my question to even answer it. Lol. Have your recieved odd checks as well?
I hope to hear from you soon and Glad to be back on GHS!
Well... that was easy. Rogers #3H permit was approved on 10-10-12 and a rig was moving on 10-14-12. The rig was on that well until about 11-23-12. BP has reported the drilling complete on the Rogers #2H but no IP yet. Nothing reported on Rogers 3H but it has been drilled.
There are two production reports available for #2H:
I know Encana is under a financial crunch with the low dry gas prices. In the TMS they have 5 wells being fracked now - Encana has 3 of them (2 Ash wells and another Weyerhauser well) and they are in the first few thousand feet drilling the 3rd Anderson well. They have told us that they plan to drill 3 more near the Anderson site and would be their with the current rig until August. Also, they said they are bringing in another rig in March. Just a week or so ago they had a good JV well with Goodrich and Contango (the Crosby well) which had an IP of over 1100 and was flowing at 1260 boepd shortly after. I do not believe they are leaving the TMS but things change. I know they have been looking for a JV partner for the TMS since the late fall. The TMS is 95% oil ands that is what they are supposedly focusing on. They have cut way back on all gas well drilling. I have heard that most if not all of their Texas activity was in gas. We will just have to wait and see. Encana has a drilling pad just 1900 ft. from my back door in W. Feliciana Parish that is ready to be drilled. We were told it would spud April 28, but we were told that several months ago. Hopefully there hasn't been a change of heart. So far the TMS has been moving in the right direction to prove up its commercial potential. There are 5 wells being fracked right now, so I guess we will have to wait and see how these wells do.
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
