Attached is the permit file from ODNR and also a plat map of the well.
How do you know there is too much oil sitting down there? How can you see the oil sitting down there?
Is it the opinion that the Eichelberger well has gone to water?
Alot of people believe that there is no risk in drilling these well(s) and that the oil is just down
there waiting to be brought to the surface. If that were true then everyone and there brother would have been doing it. It seems that the rumors about the Eichelberger well has tempered the excitement about the area, one well does not condemn an area.
It pretty well is common knowledge the oil is sitting down there. It depends on wether or not the shale wants to release it. That is the major risk
If there is enough oil to produce at a profit...they'll figure out a way to get it out.
Well...in less than 6 months the Ohio Geological Survey will release their requested cuttings from the Eichelberger Well to the public for open inspection...which includes, but is not limited to, other engineers and geologist from other drillers. The cuttings become the property of every Ohio citizen. So, I'm sure there's more intelligent people from around the world who can figure out how to unlock the code to release the minerals from our Utica shale...Devon isn't the all mighty one. One swallow doesn't make a Summer folks!
This well has been plugged. The pad is being removed and the site is being restored.
