I see where sonris has a new entry for this well. 

12/18/2018. Plugback of current curve hole @ 65 deg, current depth 15,534 md/15,508 TVD Pick up a ezsv & rih to set at 14,647’ md inside intermediate casing. Sqz 250bbls 18.2 ppg cmt, 1.4 yield ft3/sk  class h, 10 bbls  of cmt will be placed on top of the ezsv  poo

Also on 12/19/2018 well status changes from 05 to 06. Measured depth says 15534 and under detail it says 12/19 waiting on orders, total depth 15,534md, 15,508 tvd

Gee, now all we need to for Rock Man or Jay to interpret all that!  LOL!  md is measured depth (the total length of the wellbore) and TVD is True Vertical Depth (self explanatory).  Not sure of ezsv.  rih is run in hole.  Sqz is squeeze which means 250 bbls of cement (cmt) was pumped.  Don't know about poo but suspect that it is pull out of hole.  This sounds as if there was a problem drilling the curve and the driller is starting over.

Setting this plug (ezsv) inside casing plus placing massive amounts of cement points to operator sealing off this hole at this point and at least temporarily abandoning the operation right now.

There had been rumors of operator encountering some very high formation pressure in this part of the hole - this situation may have been to extreme to safely drill ahead right now.

However, setting this ezsv plug and associated cement could be part of setting up a "kick off point" to drill hole in intermediate casing and start another new wellbore via sidetracking out of this hole.

Time will tell - there is a lot we DON'T know about what is happening out there and I doubt if more details will be forthcoming on SONRIS to clear the fog and answer all of your questions.

Thx guys, appreciate all the input

hey guys, any news on the Crowell issue of fighting stuck pipe?  SN 251311

Nothing but rig signs are still up as of today.

Thanks Jay,  always appreciate your input that keeps us up to date.  Noticed when I drove by site they were already preparing next drill site just south of this one.  But no permit on Sonris yet for that SU#76 unit. 

Good news on the Crowell 30 ? Reached TVD and preparing to drill lateral per Sonris report.  SN 251311.


The Crowell well reported 64 days Drilling Ahead last Friday, 12/14, on the weekly RigData rig report.  The rig has not been reporting depth on the weekly report.  Out of curiosity I checked the SONRIS well file.  Southwind reported the well at 15,026' on 12/2.  Nine days later, 12/11, Southwind reported the well at 15,396'.  370' in nine days, or about 41' per day.  This seems like a very low ROP.

Skip, it is possible that the time frame you were looking at (12/2 to 12/11) corresponded with the operator plugging back in the vertical hole and then kicking the well to start making curve to drill the lateral. Lots of tripping and non drilling time if this was the case.

Don't think so, Rock Man.  No mention of plug back. Both reports mentioned drilling the curve.
