I was told that a new well will be drilled South of the Messenger well by Anadarko Petrol. Co. Soon. Also have a friend who has property near Powhattan who was contacted about a location on his property.
talked with anadarko man today he said that 9-10 wells will be drilled in the allen powhattan area in the next two years on anadarko lease holds. three wells are staked now and surveying begins tomorrow on the location at allen. it will be near the cell phone tower east side of i 49 (section 22) near allen exit. a brand new rig being built now will be here in january.
There are two new wells being drilled by Anadarko at Allen close to Messenger. One on Kathy Box Andersons place and one on Reed Steadman. They are now staked, but no work has been done on them as of today.
they have been staked and the property surveyed. Anadarko will also drill several other wells one on cook property in powhattan another on allen beaulah rd. one will also be drilled off hwy 1 north of powhattan. i have property in one of these wells and have talked with the anadarko people. this will be called the cane river field. we were told that most shale drilling that has gone on the company is happy with 2-3 million ft. of gas per day lets all hope that even though natural gas is getting cheaper that these wells will have exceptional flow rates and will be profitable for all. we were told by anadarko that the rig(s) will be here sometime in the spring.
