Thanks for posting, DJ. I hope the well continues along this decline profile long enough for crude prices to rebound. I would very much like to see site expert predictions on the price per barrel that would make the play profitable and encourage additional development.
You are the SONRIS expert - what did this well cost in total?
There has been no Horizontal Well – Application For Well Status Determination entered in the database at this time. It can take some months for the forms to show up.
This well is a code 18 temporarily abandoned. Also a few new reports on this well that I can’t seem to get to downloaded
Yes, it appears there was a surface issue. Report posted says the following:
Cooler erupted at the well site during maintenance operations and discharged what
appears to be less than 5 bbls of E&P waste ( mist of crude oil & SW ) to a wooded area
behind the location.
STATE POLICE INCIDENT # 20-01698 PHONED TO HOT LINE 5-18-20. THE INCIDENT OCCURRED
MARATHON ON SITE PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR JEREMY MASCORRO, PHONE 361-254-0422.
Please issue C.O. ASAP so that they will have the guidance to move forward.
Note: At this time the Operator has an operation underway to Temp. P&A this well.
With the very strong flow rates posted above I'm sure Marathon will fix the surface issue and restore the production.
Considering the apparently minor spill issue, I have a hard time understanding why the temporary P&A option was pursued?
I wonder what the well was producing in May when this spill happens?
Something appears to be missing from this whole story.
Side note - Has anyone seen a gas analysis for this well? I am hoping the gas is non sour.
Wonder that the associated water production is here? That can be a big negative on the total economics / may need another SWD well nearby to take this.
A deeper dig into the SONRIS data tells the possible story why this well was temporarily P&A'd.
At these rates, you probably need 100% dedication of a SWD injector to take all this water.
That costs of handling all this fluid can be pretty pricy.
I think I remember someone posting that they had permitted another SWD in this area - the reason for Temp P&A may be (and I stress MAY) be tied to needing more SWD injection capability.
If this is the case, then one has to figure in 1-2 high volume SWD's to produce wells like this.
I am no expert on production facilities, but my oilfield common sense is telling me that the equipment and costs needed to handle over 14,000 bbls of total fluid per day (with a low 7-8% oil cut) plus high pressure gas flow could be very extreme. Not your normal production operation for sure.
The SWD well may not be operable yet. It was permitted on 6/9. No report on when or if it has been drilled.

This whole operation is coming down to economics. The oil and gas is there - but what does it take to get it out and make money????????????
Marathon probably has other more profitable operations to invest in during this low price environment..
Skip - does SONRIS normally post gas analyses?
Other than the G/O ratio, not to my knowledge. I haven't looked at a WH-1 report lately but in the past there has not been any entry beyond that.
Wonder what the are getting paid for this gas? I would think it would be pretty good Btu - and if going to processing plant, NGL yield could be pretty decent (but low prices on that product too).
There is a lot more to find out about this well for sure
