I just noticed a new well permit and it is being drilled on acreage I own 1258 feet from my southern lease line. By the look of the permit, only the section to the south will be produced.
My question, why in the world would they need 1258 feet to land the horizontal? I had understood that it only requires 300-400 feet, so I am obviously miffed!
I wonder what we can charge/expect for surface damages?
