"Rock Man, it was clearly stated in SONRIS they were at one point waiting for a completion rig and then a rig show up. So no, the original rig was a monster 1,500 HP job that essentially drilled the well in less than three weeks, more like a…"
"Pretty sure it is a completion rig. The drilling rig was gone for a week or so and then the completion rig put up. They are doing completion type things like fracking and perforating at different levels. Perforating requires…"
"Is so, they are burning a ton of money keeping this rig on location with no drilling happening. Plus - if it is a drilling rig - they cannot frac anything until they move it off location.
I would have to say I am surprised if this is still the…"
"This well has been a real head scratcher. I was originally permitted as an Austin Chalk well, but apparently never drilled to that depth. Not sure if they encountered something they thought was better, had negative results from the…"
"The forum named the effort in Pointe Coupee and located it under the chalk not me. Regardless, the well is in the down dip and yes, I figured they were hunting around. The Fontaine Farms well two miles to the west is in the same zone and…"
"None of these zones are in the Austin Chalk, they are all different intervals in the lower Wilcox or Midway sands. The fact that they keep plugging back and coming up the hole to the next zone implies that the results aren't…"
"EOG has set up a request for a fourth zone to perforate. They set a Cast Iron Bridge Plug at 13,100 feet and asked permission to perforate at 13,018 to 13,038 feet. This is a fourth reported perforation zone posted on SONRIS. It…"
"That looks pretty. But not sure fracking works very well with Austin Chalk which is naturally fractured all over the place. EOG must know something we do not know about the Austin Chalk. No matter, I wish them the best of luck."
"Photo of Brunswick site from last week. Frac tanks hooked up. No other definite intel, so not sure if frac happened or not. I agree with Rock Man though, no hz, just looking for something within their leasehold while they have it."
"Yes, I do have some experience (mostly bad) with mineral production.here in Texas. I did finally find a good oil man and have had success in investing in Kansas. I have view data from both Texas Railroad Commission and Kansas Historical…"
"I wanted to make those "conference room and operator flexibility" comments to make sure that other readers were aware that SONRIS and other scout reports are not the bottom line as to what is happening on a well and that everything needs…"
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
