850 feet is a long way

Comment by Rock Man on November 20, 2018 at 10:23pm

On Crowell, last week they were fishing for stuck pipe at 15.933' -now washing and reaming hole 850' shallower in the wellbore. Without knowing details, it is possible that they did not "unstick" the drill pipe and had to back off and leave fish in hole. Or they got the pipe unstuck, drilled to TD, logged the hole and are now getting ready to plug back and start drilling the lateral.

These weekly reports are great, but they do a lot to the imagination (especially in a situation like this one).

Wash & Ream - conditioning the wellbore

Comment by David Crockett on November 20, 2018 at 3:26pm

I see the Crowell LM30 well #251311 was updated today.  It says w & r @ 15,072’. 

Comment by Rock Man on November 14, 2018 at 10:55pm

Operator may go deeper or shallower than permitted depth. All depends on when they well through target ( assuming base of AC) and then getting 100-150' of rat hole so that the section can be logged and entire section evaluated.

Comment by David Crockett on November 14, 2018 at 6:57pm

So they only lacked 15 feet getting to the vertical depth that they wanted before getting stuck. Is that correct?  Then it looks like they had only planned to go an additional 57 feet. Am I correct?  Is that unusual?

Comment by Rock Man on November 14, 2018 at 4:42pm

Jay, thanks - I should have figured that this was still pilot hole part of program / my error. Even more a concern that they are stuck in vertical hole.

Comment by Rock Man on November 14, 2018 at 4:13pm

David, thanks for the Crowell update. Not encouraging seeing them having to deal with stuck drill pipe only about 1000' below intermediate casing shoe. I figure this puts the wellbore either in the lower part of the curve or at a horizontal position in the AC target zone. Also assuming the operator is using oil based mud to limit such problems.
