For the mineral rights owner in 1 640 section. Would it be better or worse for 640 or 1280 spacing units? Thoughts opinions. A 1280 unit is a 10000 foot well a 640 unit is a 5000 foot well. The cost to drill a 10000 foot well is less in cost. Than 2 5000 wells in a 640 unit. However, with a 640 unit spacing, you are only sharing production with 640 NMAs and not 1280 NMA as with a 10K foot well. A 10K well since covers more of the pay formation twice as much will it produce twice as much production for twice as long. If it did then one would prefer a 1280 unit rather than a 640, however, if it doesn't then one would prefer a 640 unit. For a 1280 unit will cut your revenue in half from a 640 unit.
So which is best and desired. Comments, Opinions,
