"Skip:  I'm just curious about your "wind power" service.  SWEPCO owns a partial interest in the lignite fired power plant in DeSoto Parish.  Are you able to specify "wind only" with SWEPCO?"

My friend at Panda didn't know anything beyond what was in the article.  He's nearing retirement and I guess his mind is elsewhere.  You know everyone directly and indirectly connected to the electrical power generation industry is watching this demonstration plant.

Are you still working in the Caddo Pine Island?  If so Julie and I are bored and want to invite you to lunch one day while you are in transit through E TX.

New to this group, so any info on SW Walker county and /or Augustus May Energy? What is the going rate on leases in Walker county?

Agreed.  I'm always curious when I see significant condensate production.  A majority of new wells that are profitable owing to liquids don't look especially impressive in their IP and production data because there is no btu value reported for the gas component.  You might see an IP of 75 bbls of condensate and 4 MMcfd and think it an average well then see a report by the operator that the well is making 2,500 BOED.  Most state reporting regs don't require specifics as to NGL production or btu per mcf of gas.  Dry gas, such as Haynesville, may have a btu value of 0.95 while a good wet gas well may have a btu value of 1.15.

Look over the Crimson well in Brazos Co. It's a 72 hour test that makes it look very impressive. 24 hour test is significantly lower obviously.

Doesn't make sense to me either, dbob.  That's why I think it's likely inaccurate.  Encana needs to concentrate on oil and liquids no matter where located.  What I'm seeing in the TMS currently would lead me to believe they will have at least three rigs there sometime this year. If not, it doesn't bode well for the TMS play.
