I happen to live near about 10 large pipeyards east of houston. Just a few short years ago they were mostly abandoned and had been so long enough to grow trees. Then in the last 5 years they began to come back into operation. Well just in the past couple of months they have really boomed. I passed by today and there were trucks lined up 10 deep waiting to haul. And the pipe is stacked up so high and wide that it looks like cord wood. Thousands and thousands of pipe. Much of it is drill stem I believe. What does this mean? I know it is an indicator of some sorts but is it good or bad? These yards have never looked like this in at least 20 years!!! is it stacking up because of lack of drilling or are they gearing up to drill?
Hey, we're starting to hear all kinds of reasons why leases aren't valid, why drafts aren't being paid. I'm sure there will be new ways invented to be "held by." Right now, I suspect Mr. Stewart is being "held by fringe."
What other details, if any, do you know about this well? Did they do any core work? Any idea what interval they are fracing? The well was permitted in Rodessa, Travis Peak, Cotton Valley, Cotton Valley Lime and Bossier Shale fields.
I'm guessing you won't hear much about the 3D results. That info is usually tighter than a drum for a long time. Anyone caught discussing it outside their own company could be fired in a heartbeat. And in times like these, don't think anyone wants to take a chance.
What kind of pipe has a wall thickness that's about an inch or more thick?
It didn't look all that large of diameter, maybe 12 inches OD.
I saw some on a trailer like that the other day.
It certainly looked heavy duty what ever it was for!
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
