It looks like Halcon is doing the same thing with Staab that they're doing with Allam and Rainbow in Venango(permitting verticals).  The Staab permit is for a vertical well.  Perhaps to take core samples to promote a sale?  Your guess is a good as mine.  As far as the Byler, it looks like Swepi is just re-permitting.

Jim T.   I have interest in the Staab as well as the Byler.  I regularly check the DEP production info and well permitting.   The DEP site shows the Staab with 0 output for gas, condensate, and oil for the 1st half of 2013.  The 2nd half shows 3.3M of gas with 0 condens, and 0 oil.  Then, in the comments sections it says 'preparing application for inactive status and evaluating pipeline and marketing options.'    There was a video on you- tube awhile back that lasted for around a minute and showed a huge flame with a heckova lotta noise coming from it.  I haven't seen any other info on it.   It's about 9 mi W of my property.   The Byler also has my interest since it's 11 SSW of my place and for the 1st half of 2013 they show 0 gas and 100 bbl of condens, but for the 2nd half they report 0 production.  The 4HD was permitted  in 11/12, the 2HD and 6HD were permitted 3/13, and now on 3/17/14, they have renewed the 6HD.   Good news, I hope, but I sure would like to know their findings and thoughts, as well.   Any add'l is appreicated.  Berk had some good info from time to time, but haven't seen much from anyone, poste here.  mark

Can someone tell me what is going on with the Staab well?  I received a DEP email that there is now a pending permit, but the previous permit was made inactive last month.

Comment by Samuel J. Orr on March 30, 2014 at 9:30pm

Lippert I believe is basically a dead well. I am uncertain if there was some technical screw-up in the drilling or fracking or whether it has petered out because of adverse geology? The well supposedly produced some oil initially, and early reports were that it was going to be a monster of a well.

Comment by Jim Taylor on March 30, 2014 at 6:48pm
PADEP updated the production numbers (I learned from the Mercer site). Can someone share an opinion on Lippert Q1+Q2 vs. Q3+Q4? Thanks

Take a look at Master Limited Partnerships, a vehicle used by producers for pipelines.
Master Limited Partnerships would seem to be arms-length companies.  And after the shares are sold to unsuspecting investors looking for a relatively safe income investment, can you mess them up because some landowner is unhappy?
Comment by sldouglass on March 19, 2014 at 8:49pm

The deductions are frustrating, but that is only one issue in computing royalties.  Most people seem to think that the royalty is applied to a price paid by a user [or at least someone close to an end user].  But that price may be an imaginary price set, one way or another] by the producer.  Note that the Utica has become popular because it contains not only the dry methane gas; it has wet stuff like propane, ethane and other "thanes" that bring in higher revenue per mcf even oil in some places.  One might expect the landowner to get the benefit of the higher wet gas component prices in the royalty computation [x amount of propane sold at Y price,      A amount of methane sold for B price etc.  The agreed royalty would be applied to the several sales.  After all the producers ran from the lower priced dry Marcellus gas to get higher priced stuff from the Utica.  BUT I doubt if any landowner has received a statement reflecting all this [and this is before the deductions].  Instead the production is sold to the local very friendly gathering line for a price "set by the gathering line."  An arms-length transaction?  And the producers have formed interesting limited partnerships to own the gathering lines - many times with the producer as general partner calling the shots.  All with some fascinating results.
