Camino Natural Resources obtained Permits to drill 2 horizontal wells in Section 4. As I understand the documentation, one well, Black Mesa -API 051 24655, will draw from Sections 3 and 10. The other well, Great Plains - API 051 24709, will draw from Sections 4 and 9. Additionally, the well locations are identical. Forms 1001A’s - NOTIFICATION OF WELL SPUD were filed for both wells on September 5th and 9th.
I own mineral rights in Section 4, live out of state, and am amazed by the technology involved in horizontal drilling. Which leads me to a couple of questions which I’m sure ya’ll can help me with.
First, are there one or two holes in the surface?
Second, since the wells have been spudded is/was there an oil drilling rig on site?
Third, due to the proximity of the wells, will they likely draw from the same area and perhaps be zipper fracked?
Fourth, if there is in fact a single hole in the surface, how in the heck will they sort-out proceeds to the owners? (Linear measure per section?)
