I heard that ODNR is working on new mapping that moves the wet gas boundary to the eastern 1/3 of Belmont county. The western 2/3 of the county will show as definitely in the wet gas area.
I'm beginning to believe that everyone connected to the oil and gas industry will lie repeatedly to protect their interests. There is far more at stake here than we landowners can fathom.
The transfer facility outside of Reader WV has train and tracter preasurized tankers lined up to load or unload and preasurized tanker truck convoys are traveling thru Wheeling from Rt 88 from Marshall County. Hopefully carrying wet.
HOUSTON, TX, Apr 19, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) today provided an update on its drilling program in the Utica Shale play in eastern Ohio after filing the required production history with Ohio Department of Natural Resources. To date, the company has drilled and is producing from three wells in the Utica Shale, the most recent of which has delivered more than 9,500 barrels of light-gravity crude oil during its first 20 days on line.
"Though it is very early in our exploration program, the strong initial results are encouraging," said Bob Daniels, Anadarko Sr. Vice President, Worldwide Exploration. "We expect to begin flowing back our fourth Utica exploration well in the next few days and are currently drilling our fifth exploration well in the play. We plan to continue an active drilling program throughout the year, as we evaluate the liquids-rich potential of our 390,000-acre (gross) position in the Utica Shale."
Anadarko's Brookfield A-3H well in Noble County has produced approximately 9,500 barrels of oil and approximately 12 million cubic feet (MMcf) of high-BTU (British thermal units) natural gas during its first 20 days on line. The Spencer A-1H and Spencer A-5H wells, located in Guernsey County, have cumulatively produced a combined 20,000 barrels of light-gravity crude oil and 37 MMcf of liquids-rich natural gas in just under two months on line. All three horizontal wells were drilled to a vertical depth of approximately 6,500 feet and a lateral length of about 5,000 feet with 16- to 19-stage completions.
I noticed that you included parts of Pleasants County, WV. Was this intended or was your hand just shaking because you were so excited it covered your lands?
