What I don't get they mention sugar grove township, the map of the pipline does not come close to sugar grove.

Sorry Sam & all. I try not to be negative, but I think all of us posting in here have had our hopes raised then dashed so many times that we've all become a little numb and skeptical when it comes to potential good news. Halcon in particular has had a nasty habit of hoodwinking people in Mercer and Venango counties since this play began. I don't think anyone reading this would disagree. Never the less, I am hoping for the best for all of us.

More good news for the area. From a reliable source. Chevron well on Hosack Rd: Test well must have been good. Was fracked and quickley burned off. Now drilling more wells from that platform. They wouldn't be drilling more wells if the results were not good from the test well. Fingers crossed!

JR Ewing: After being the first to post some really good news, your last several posts have been  uncharacteristically negative. Have a cold beer, put your feet up, chill out, and have faith that the good times are about to roll.

Much larger projects have been quashed by eco-freaks, owls and salamanders. You can't discount them.

The pipeline as proposed looks pretty environmentally friendly. That Halcon gets these permits is extremely important. They want to sell their acreage. If the Geology is bad, the presence or absence of a conveniently located pipeline is irrelevant. Good Geology with a nearby pipeline is substantially more valuable than Good Geology without any such pipeline. The pipeline should enable Halcon to sell its non-core  Utica acreage at a better price. A nearby pipeline should also enhance the likelihood that landowners in the area who have acreage that is not as yet leased, will in fact be offered leases when the pipeline is completed. I do not think Halcon has the financial ability to construct this pipeline. Permits to build it, if granted, are likely assignable. I would expect such permits to be acquired by whatever O&G company acquires Halcon's acreage that would be served by the pipeline. Again, this is all speculation on my part.

Starting to pay folks for the row options they signed would be a sign that they really mean business.  I was also kind of wondering if they might just be testing the waters to see how much opposition they might get from the environmentalists.  Seems like every proposed pipeline project lately has become a Keystone XL.  I read this morning where people in the eastern part of the state are fighting the Atlantic Sunrise connecter because it's to pass through a lot of coal mine subsidence areas.  Our issue will be all of the wetlands this pipeline will disburb.

JV partner Hilcorp, Chevron, or Williams?

Comment by deer spotter yesterday

Also Halcon would have to build the previously permitted Allam 1H to NFG pipeline believe that project was appox. 10 miles that would make appox. 27.5 miles of build out. Big project 100 million for the pipeline another 100million for the stripper plant. Looked good this morning not sure now. Hope I'm wrong.

Comment by JREwing yesterday

JohnL, yes, you're right.  The Pilgram well is only another mile or so past the end/beginning point of the pipeline.  My guess is that they will install a smaller line from the Pilgram to the end point at the Colpetzer farm.  The rumors were that the Colpetzer farm was to be a processing center to separate liquids from the methane.  The land they aquired next to the NFG pump station in Venango was to be another.

deer spotter, that's what I read also.  My guess is that several wells will feed into that pipeline at some point.  Hilcorp has some permits very close also on the east side of Sandy Lake.

But, like I've learned to say about this business, I'll believe it when I see it.
