I am new to all of this and have a question. I hope someone can help…
I am confused about horizontal drilling. I am attaching 2 pictures: a diagram from an article that describes how through horizontal drilling, several shale layers can be drilled and oil/gas produced and a picture from the RRC website with sections that have multiple horizontal wells.
So, article diagram suggests that several wells (total of 16 in 640-acre section) can be placed on one section. Is that what I am seeing in the RRC picture snapshot I attached?
Has anyone ever heard of 16 horizontal wells on a section of land?
Thanks for the clarification!
