Thank you for replying .....it states the "true vertical" as 14500 and the "measured depth" as 19500.......so is the 19500 the length of the lateral leg??? and while I'm asking...can you have more than one leg??? Thanks again.
Jean, I don't know very much, but to get the lateral length you have to subtract the true vertical depth from the measured depth, so it would be 19500 minus 14500 to give the lateral a length of 5000 feet. I don't believe that you can have more than one leg, but I don't know for sure. I would think not.
Thanks David.....Do you or anyone else know how the lateral leg works as far as getting oil out of the ground? How many feet does it get from the pipe when extracting oil? I have land in the next section of the Broadway well and just wondering "could they be getting oil from my property?"....something else, I heard that a "unit" could be as little as 60 acres, is this true?
Although this video represents a natural gas well, the process is very similar.
The "frac cylinder" created around a horizontal wellbore generally has a limited radius, say 150'. Operators are required to keep perforations in the lateral 330' from unit boundaries. So no, the well would not produce any hydrocarbons outside of the unit boundary. Drilling & Production units vary in size by depth and type of hydrocarbon produced. Shallow oil units can be small, 40 to 80 acres. Deeper gas units may be 320 to 640 acres as a gas well typically can produce from a wider area. These are examples of units for conventional reservoirs. The state has approved units in excess of 640 acres for unconventional reservoirs owing to the desire of the industry to drill laterals of a maximum length. Although drilling units have historically been defined as the area that can be drained by a single well, the state has modified that in regard to deep unconventional reservoirs. As an example Haynesville Shale units are generally a section, 640 acres, yet the state's well spacing is 80 acres. Therefore theoretically each unit can have 8 horizontal wellbores, 8 x 80 = 640.
Wow! You sound so smart...thank you so much ...that has helped me understand a lot of what I was wondering about!!!! I have heard "third hand" something everybody might be interested in hearing...I'll just say that the landowners around the Broadway well supposedly will "be very wealthy"...this from the driller who is from Texas...time will tell...
Jean, suggest that you take rumors with a grain of salt. As to drillers knowing anything about the potential of a completed well, that's not the case with horizontal wells which require hydraulic stimulation. The drilling rig is long gone by the time the completion operations get underway and even the frac crew doesn't know the well results when they drive away. Only those industry members who handle tying wells into gathering systems are in a position to know how a well flows.
Jean, the length of the lateral would be 19500MD-14500TVD= 5000 feet. The 5000 foot section is where the oil source rock lies, so the longer the lateral the more contact area your well has in the pay rock.
I know that the use of multi laterals are done in the oil field, but I don't think they are currently using this in shale wells on a large scale if at all. You could have more than one leg but I don't think they are doing that as of now is my answer.
As far as one of your other questions about them getting oil from your land in shale plays your going to deplete probably 90 to 150 acres with the average well. The state should be highly involved with this process, so I wouldn't worry too much. If Halcon were to encounter a prolific conventional oil sand that covered thousands of acres (which no one expects) then it would be a different story.
Thank you Keith...I appreciate all the information and knowledge all of you share...all I can contribute is "third hand" information that someone close to me tells me, which needs to be "taken with a grain of salt"...
Some of my family has leased their land and some haven't, what do ya'll think is the wise thing to do at this point knowing that Broadway's well seems to be promising... Halcon is moving their drilling rig to another well site 12 miles south from there and I "heard" and pretty sure, correctly so, that another well is going up on Hwy 1 just north of Broadway's well...should they accept the 500 per acre with 25% royalty or wait for something a little better....
