Thanks Robert!

To those interested, production from my well is following (almost exactly) the curve "original design" in the attachment.

Hope this helps anyone that follows this discussion. It looks to be a great planning tool.

In EOG's most recent earnings call they said that there were 6,000 drilling locations remaining on their EFS acreage and that each of those are pegged on a map, not derived from dividing total leasehold acres by 40, 80, etc.

It will be rare to see operators share any info with royalty owners aside from some very general info. Many times, operators will have groups approach their royalty interest owners to purchase those mineral rights - no way they want you knowing their "master plan".

And I am positive that EOG and other companies have a series of maps showing planned horizontals in any one area.

We have been in production on one of the wells for a year. The monthly production rate is easy to plot and almost follows a perfect "curve".

I do not have any inside info on economics and ROI or even how EOG determines drilling strategies for EFS. I believe, perhaps too optimistically, that EOG cannot make enough money on this one well to justify the costs and must have a multiple well strategy. I think I see that in the RRC map data that shows multiple wells in the same area on what appears to be a linear spacing and alignment. I can almost draw a straight line through the well locations per the map coordinates. 

I would probably never get the info, but I sure wish EOG could trust interest owners with their strategy. With that info and assuming each well will follow the same production pattern, we can do some serious financial planning.

Again, I have no inside info., but I will risk saying that certainly EOG has a plan. They aren't using a dartboard, even the old wildcatters had a plan.

OK, I really appreciate everyone's input, jrs

John, there really isn't a way to find out future plans for an area most of the time. Companies are very secretive with their plans to the extent that oftentimes one division of a company won't know exactly what another within the same company is planning. If you live nearby an area of interest you can see activity not on the Internet but if not you generally have to wait for drilling permits to be filed. Public company investor presentations can also yield some general information on plans for an area.

Thx! jrs

One has to figure that eventually operators (present and future) will end up drilling up a unit / area to its maximum extent.

No way to know this for sure now - key for many operators is to get acreage HBP and then sell it for the production and undeveloped locations (proven and probable) on the acreage.

O&G prices also come into play here as to timing - if prices drop, there is no incentive to infill HBP acreage at lower prices and ROI.

Anyway to find out if something is going on or planned in a given field, thx! jrs
