On this well are they going back in the 220535 or is it a new drill just at same location?
777 reporting drilling ahead but at the same depth as last report, 14,483', 3/6. I hope that means the wellbore is clear and the drilling has started up again.
Thx for the info Skip ,, we can get it no where else except Sonris ... and they’re always days behind your reports!! HC
See Jay's Main Page discussion.
Last weekly rig report listing, 3/13. After 38 days drilling the Crowell LM 3 was Temporarily Abandoned @ 14,491'.
what does this mean Skip, is MRO moving forward with plans to place water produced by future wells in the area?
It is a permit for an additional SWD well so the company must be planning for the need to dispose of more produced formation water. Beyond that, I'll leave the analysis to Rock Man or Jay..
Hard to figure this one out without being in MRO's offices and inner sanctum.
The Crowell well had tested over 13,000 BW per day along with 7+ MMCF and 1007 BO on March 24, 2020.
Those types of water volumes come close to exceeding what one SWD could handle - and depending on O&G prices, there MAY be some benefits of drilling another SWD to continue to produced the O&G (which I am guessing will probably decline over time).
But when you read the attached incident report about a small spill on the location - and the report and Sonris info that indicates well is being temporarily P&A'd - one has to wonder why a second SWD.
Guess we have to wait to see what happens. At best, economics here are skinny.
Considering that Marathon laid off their entire team that worked this area I would say they are done. They did not prepare for the amount of pressure that the reservoir had or the amount of water that the wells produce. Just a little bit of research into the performance of the old Masters Creek wells should have alerted them but for some reason they overlooked it. I do not believe this area works without a minimum of $60-70 oil, especially with the special royalty the Crowells et al demanded.
Maybe a positive step, hopefully. I do know that what I heard direct from a Gas Company/LNG source on the receiving end of the Pawnee area well that the gas that was coming from that well was very good, clean. I know they stopped receiving for awhile but not sure about now. Not sure what had means.
