Texas Lease/ID completion change

A well was drilled and moved to production in mid-2010. After 5 months of production, the Texas Operator/Wellbore/PDQ information now classifies the original Type Well=History, and they have added a new Lease/ID for the Type Well=Producing.

This well is in a unit for horizontal drilling, and two other wills have been permitted, but not completed. The field name was changed slightly as well

Why would this be done?

Does mean that the unit might be amended in some way?

Does the field name specify a specific depth permitted in drilling?



I would contact the Texas Railroad Commission (the District office located in your area), and discuss these questions. They will have access to all the records pertaining to this well and can provide accurate information.
