How do you find out which direction the horizontal laterals go by ODNR permits or the engineer reports? I have looked into this and cant seem to find the answer.
OK thanks guys. I was looking at permits that did not have the plat maps posted yet on the site. So I guess the even and odd numbers are a good indication of direction then.
Do you mean SE instead of SW. I have not seen any laterals running in a SW direction
Here where I am in PA, with eight wells on a pad, 1H, 2H, 3H, and 4H all head NW. The remaining four wells all head SE.
Who is that Driller in PA?
So far in NE Ohio, Chesapeake has drilled the most Horizontal Wells, by far.
I am not sure if "ODD = NW and EVEN = SE" is Standard (or suggested) Nomenclature per Ohio DNR or just a standard used by the Drillers that just happen to be here.
In the Eastern part of Ohio (especially CHPK wells) typically the ODD # Laterals go NW from the pad and the EVEN # Laterals go SE from the pad but in the Western part of Ohio some of the Laterals can go due NORTH and due SOUTH to more align with and to better fit inside fewer landowner properties
Does anyone know with respect to the "wet Gas zone" in the Utica in eastern OH - roughly, to what degree NW to SE do the laterals run? Imagine the face of a clock, with 12 oclock being due north. Do they run from 10 oclock to 4 oclock? 11 oclock to 5 oclock? something else?
North-North-West on compass - between NW & North
so between 20 to 30 Degrees West of due North
South-South-East on compass - between SE & South
so between 20 to 30 Degrees East of Due South
Yes, like 11 o'clock and 5 o'clock which is approx 30 degrees.
No, not like 10 & 4 which is approx 60 degrees.
