Thanks for the correct info on the Morgan. Rimrock is already developing the site. I drove by it yesterday and made the wrong assumption as to direction.

Comment by M Barnes on December 16, 2017 at 10:16am

Rimrock has a permit 11/27/17 to spud in 30 and go north into 19 for the Morgan 1-19WH. Woodford well

Marathon has a permit for the Somers 0404 1-31-30SXH which was a Springer well.  I have an old map that shows a fault, but I am not sure at what level.  If it exists (doesn't show up on their preliminary Springer maps in the OCC files ) the alignment of that fault and which side the well ended up on may have something to do with that first well.  82.46% was completed in 31 and 17.54% in 30.  They did have three more wells on their maps, but I don't see permits for them.  They don't have an increased density case filed either. They can hold those sections in the Springer with the perfs in both.

Rimrock Resources received a drilling permit on November 27 for a horizontal well originating at the northwest corner of Section 30 04N 04W, running south for one mile. That seems odd since Marathon's Somers well originated in the south border of Section 31 04N 04W to run north to the north border of Section 30, but they had some trouble entering Section 30 and pulled back. Marathon had permits to drill three more wells from 31 into 30. Maybe they expired.

I carry two around all the time, but the horizontal laterals are very short. :-)

There are an enormous amount of horizontal well images if you just Google "horizontal well" in images. 

Here is one. Horizontal%20well%20image.png

Always helps to have a picture 

Comment by Frank Pfisch on December 8, 2017 at 10:17am

There are three terms to become familiar with: surface location, heel and tow.  Although the proportions are much different, think of your hip-joint as the surface location, your leg as the vertical portion of the well, your heel as the location of the turn from vertical to horizontal, and your toe as the end of the horizontal portion.

The surface location does not have to be on the unit, and is often on an adjoining section. The heel of the well usually turns horizontal very near the border of the first section of the MUH, and the horizontal drilling continues into the second section of the MUH.

The order number is 670149.  I understand that this is a horizontal well.  I assumed the vertical well was part of the MCCAA 1-30-19H.  I was not aware this started in Sec 31.  I do not know how multiunit horizontal wells work.  Do they all originate from one well or do they have to drill new vertical wells that create new horizontal wells?  This is 640 acre spacing.  What does that mean?

Comment by M Barnes on December 8, 2017 at 7:43am

I could be wrong.  What is the number on the order? The one I read said Horizontal.  The permit is horizontal, so I assumed it was right.  Anyway, looks like 30 and 31 will get horizontal wells.  They do have to drill the vertical part first.  Think of a bendy straw.  They go down vertically, make the turn, then go horizontal, so is a combination of both. 

Comment by DON IVEY on December 7, 2017 at 10:29pm

Thanks Martha for correcting me.  Obviously I still have a lot more to learn.  I got my info from the signed order from the OCC.  I thought that was official.  Always appreciate your input.

Comment by M Barnes on December 7, 2017 at 9:09pm

To correct just a bit.  MCCAA 1-30-19H is a horizontal well-you can tell by the "H" in the name.  It was spud May 30 in section 30 and went north into 19.  The horizontal well has been drilled (not vertical).  The final percentages in each section will be reported to the OCC and a final order will be issued with the exact percentages which might not be the permitted ones.  The DO will be paid on the final ones. 

Colwell 1-3130 H was permitted to spud in 31 and drillnorth into 30 to just about the surface location of the MCCAA well.  I think there is a fault there. It spud Oct 22 so is not finished yet.  Looks like 30 might be a little bit of it, but not much.
