r. eland -- we also participate in the North Mitre unit.

Resolute's investor presentations contain a lot of good info.  Their  "Appaloosa" development is on page 26 of the most recent.  North and South Mitre are within it.

Clint, thanks for the reply - I should have asked specifically if there are more wells planned in the North Mitre 2 unit of H&GN RR CO Surv bl 2, sections 21 and 20.  I see a lot of action in the South Mitre 2 unit adjacent to the North Mitre 2 unit.

Thanks, again.

r. eiland...........after clicking on this link check out the (3) South Goat 2 Unit wells(API 389-36597 & 37598 & 36601)   I think this is what you are searching for.

Is Resolute doing any new wells in H& GN RR Co Surv blk 2, section 20 or 21?

Wade.....that's why I'm trying to get a consortium together of major oil and
gas exploration and production companies.....to operate a CRASH CRASH
Priority One research and development program to turn produced water
back into fresh drinking water.....but, we will STILL need huge surface
reservoirs to store the reclaimed water because 'they' won't allow it to be
reinjected into the fresh water aquifers of the area....claiming THAT causes earthquakes as well. The next step will be to declare the fresh water manmade holding surface reservoirs to be causing pressure
concentrations that stress the crust and....you guessed it....cause earthquakes.

But, I would like to see these surface fresh water reservoirs raising fish
for protein, the water released for vegetable farming for food for people
and fodder for dairies and beef feeder operations.

Not sure what is causing the increased seismic activity but the more important issue is what does the state and feds THINK is causing it, and they seem to think, even Texas and Oklahoma, that SWD activity is causing increased seismic activity in certain areas, but not all. It may be that there are a lot more seismographs out there now, which would pick up more activity that historical records would not show. However, I have seen some pretty convincing heat maps which point to increased seismic activity.

In short, looks like it will be harder to get SWD permits in seismic prone areas. It is also accelerating the shift toward using produced water for frac and drilling operations. Just as they are building substantial water systems to bring water in, we may end up with substantial water systems to disperse produced water over a wider area.

M A Smith, that’s correct. The Permian Basin is overarching and includes the Delaware and Midland Basins, which are separated by the Central Basin Platform.

Comment by M A Smith on February 10, 2018 at 11:55am

Lawrence -- Most papers I've seen show the Delaware and Midland basins separated by the Central Basin Platform.  We use the term "Permian Basin" but I've viewed it as a more general description of all of the above.  Am I wrong?

Comment by Lawrence Rayburn on February 9, 2018 at 8:23pm

Mike....I hear, as do you, that the RRC is greatly extending the permitting
process for SWDs .....which doesn't hurt my feelings any. This means
competitive SWD operators will have to wait to be able to operate any
SWD wells they drill....and that leaves MORE produced water that the
SWD on my property will have to dispose of....meaning more money for
the operator and more for me.

I understand what you are saying about the faults and seismic activity in the area. A lot of people are trying blame this activity on SWD's. What do you hear about the Railroad Commission and their new additional regulations with respect to SWD's? I'm hearing that are severely slowing down the permitting process.
