Hi, I am so glad to hear from you. Every time I see a mention of redefineing
the CV I think of you. At least we helped that one. I hope things are better
with the family illness. I Have leased with Petrohawk and went to one of those
pre application meetings last Monday. Petro has applied for unitization in my
sec. (got a letter today) so now we wait and see. Please keep in touch. Glad your
Just dropping by to say hello. Have one "shale" of a day. Also, there some new profile questions. Check those out by clicking HERE. Also, we are coming up on our 10,000th member. Be sure to celebrate with me. Click here for more about that.
I'm writing you, since you were good about taking up the fight on redefining zones....
Here's another issue, that has come up in some of the discussions on this site... Why is a drilling company allowed to form a 640-acre unit, when all that they intend to drill for the near-term might be a single vertical well. Surely that vertical well will not drain all the 640 acres. Something does not seem right to me. I would think that if the company wants to hold 640 acres, they ought to be drilling wells that drain all 640 acres.
To whom in the Louisiana DNR did you write with your issue? I'd like to pursue this with them.
Hey Doc, Hows it going ? Hope things are well for you and yours. You told me this thing was moving 90 miles an hour and I couldn't see the forrest for the trees. Finally hit another slowdown around here for a little while at least. Maybe one day I can buy you that cup of Java my friend. Have a great one. Snake
congrats on what you and jay have managed to do getting this whole redefining issued cleared up. i speak for all of my family when i say thanks is not enough..keep up the good work and put the word out there for all of us that might not be a ontop of the local government issues as someone with your knowledge.
I am sure you got email from stephen walker on behalf of the comm of cons. ofc. If you didn't I will email it to
you. He just wanted my email so he can keep me posted as intrested party on the redefining issue. That is all fine and good but why can't they just answer our
questions? Do ya think they don't know what to say?
I spoke with Jim Broussard in SHV DNR ofc. this AM. I asked specific question. How would the "redefine
the depth" affect an old lease HBP if they drilled new
wells in section (only 1 in section now) or if they reworked the old well. Advised me he didn't think they
were going to do that anymore because they were
getting complaints in Baton Rouge. You mean to tell
me they would just keep letting the O/G do it if we
had not sent fax,emails, etc. Still want to know why
they would ask and for what reason. AND is it going
to stop or what?
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
