What's the section township and range?
Well was completed, evaluating well. Well Status: 31_ inactive dry hole future utility.
The sand was the proppant used in the frac operation. Resin-coated sand is a common proppant used in hydraulic fracture stimulation. Hopefully a sufficient amount remains in the artificial fractures to keep them open but some portion flows back with the frac water.
Some of the sand used in the frac mix always flows back. There is no way to know how much remained in the fractures without seeing an internal company report as that information is not contained in reports filed with the state.
So are you saying it is a dry hole, No oil below
The Lane well was always going to be a "science" well. They never intended this well to be a producing well. There is another permitted well the Lane 64-H that is going to be the horizontal well drilled from the same well site. That one "hopefully" will be the producing well. When they actually start drilling that one is anyone's guess.
Well serial # 243776. Permitted on September 8, 2011. You can check it out on SONRIS
What does a "science" well mean, and do they do this at all wells, Thanks
The well was drilled to determine certain properties of the formation and to verify the depth of the formation. They did frack the well but not for production puposes. It was to investigate the rock permeability to help with the frack plans for future wells in the area or for the horizontal well planned from the site.
