A more recent term I have heard or seen written is DUC, Drilled but Uncompleted wells.  I would suppose they are also Frack Logged wells.  They need either Fracking or infrastructure for completetion.

Correct. The industry term is "frack logged" wells. Drilled but not fracked.

I read recently that there are many wells in the Permian Basin area finished but not as yet "completed."  I am assuming by completed they mean the well has not been fracked and is not producing any product, gas or oil or both.  Am I drawing the correct conclusion?

What can anyone tell me about the Triple M Oil Field in Sterling County?  I have investments in two wells not yet completed in that area of the county.  Both wells are down to about 8,000 feet and cut across several play formations.  I understand that they are principally shale wells, thus must be fracked, etc.  Any information please.

I have a contact that is trying to lease 640 acres or more in Sterling County.  If you have open acreage, email me your contact information.

This discussion doesn't seem to be watched a great deal.  But, just in case, does anyone have any information on the well Oxy completed south of Sterling City  Allen 7.  I saw their completion report and am wondering if there was a mechanical issue.

If you got water under your surface--someday it may be worth more than oil in West Texas. Think hard before you sell it cheap.

What is a reasonable amount to charge for water?  If we don't sell our water what does it cost to haul water into Sterling Co.?
