Have been trying to find out if any drilling or plans on drilling in SEC 30 TWN 17 RGE 15. Have seen the 31 and 32 plans and those owners also got letters indication drilling. As of now I know of no one getting a letter indicating plans on Drilling in this area. Anyone with any info on this area would be appreciated.
I was wondering why it said 32. Curious why there seems to be Sections around 30 being permited and drilled but no section 30. I think even 31 may have a permit. When you say its not been unitized what does that mean Les. Hey dont worry about the mistake you are correct many many times more than you are wrong. No need for an apology Les. Appreciate you trying to find out. Im sure lots of folks in section 30 would like to at least see a permit for 30 soon.
RJ, actually only Section 32 is the only one in T17N-R15W with a permitted Haynesville Shale well. There are two Haynesville Shale wells permitted to the south in Sections 5 & 6 of T16N-R15W.
Not being unitized just means no one has applied with the State to form a Haynesville Unit for Section 30. Normally this occurs before applying for a well permit. Eleven sections (2-7, 9-10, 15-16, 32) in T17N-R15W have Haynesville Units.
Hmm,Well that is not good news for section 30 then. Wonder what the problem is if any with 30. Maybe there is a PAD location problem or something. You would think that They would want their lease money back for that section. Maybe they are just doing the easy to get to locations right now. Will the unit application also be on Sonris ?
RJ, the timing for well permits and drilling is primarily related to lease expirations. If the acreage is already held by production or if the leases are not set for expiration in the next few months then there is no strong reason to drill immediately. It is also unclear who controls the majority of the acreage in Section 30.
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
