Another big player (MRO) who has good experience and results in the AC Hz Frac play. Things should start getting busy now!

Agree with Craig on the EOG SWD permit - positive move. And a lot less expensive for EOG in the long run versus trucking out produced water.

Wonder if there will be any opposition to SWD permit?

Comment by Craig Wascom on April 11, 2018 at 9:32pm

SWD I like that! Looks like plans for further action in the area.

EOG has permitted a SWD well in the North Bayou Jack Field.

Haven't heard anything on the EOG well - you mention gas lift. Where did you hear that?

I would expect EOG would be considering gas lift as an option for artificial lift in this well - although I would have thought that they would consider installing a downhole ESP instead of a gas lift system.

Check my earlier comments on this blog about reasons for decrease in well performance. A well like this will not flow on its own at optimum rates - it will need some help in unloading all the fluid in the wellbore / lateral and producing. This is where artificial lift technology comes into play. A simple rod pump will not move enough fluid to unload this wellbore sufficiently. And setting up either downhole ESP's or gas lift takes time and effort to get things set up correctly. This all impacts rate until things are running smoothly

Anybody heard any news on Eagle Ranch well?  GASLIFT???
