Bob-I haven't been ignoring you, just trying not to make this the "Bob and John site". I see Hilcorp has a small rig on the Zigo pad. I would expect the big rig on the Wengerd pad to go to Zigo's next. You can see the rig on the Wengerd site if you're traveling west of Mercer on I-80.

I see on pa. site that Halcon got there storm water permit for the pipeline between Yoder to Reges wells. The storm water permit for Hilcorp Hanna pad was issued. Swepi permit for drilling the Shannon (3HD) well deeper is still pending.

Bob- good initial guess. There must be a hot spot in that area with the James, Wengerd, McCullough and now the Anderson pad. Zigo is just east of there. These pads are following the Pennant Midstream pipeline. I see the James well is being fracked this week. Let's hope things keep moving along.

JohnL its official,the Anderson pad will be on highland road just north of Grapevine road. 

Comment by JohnL on December 4, 2014 at 8:23pm
Bob- your guess near Grapevine and Highland is probably as close as any. That wold put it a few miles from the James pad. It will be interesting to see if Hilcorp keeps drilling with the low oil/gas prices. Just when things were starting to look up for this area.

Any official word on where the Anderson pad is to be?

Comment by JohnL on December 2, 2014 at 3:38pm
Hilcorp rig on the James pad is being moved today to the Wengerd pad in Lackawannock twp.

 VERY BAD NEWS. Halcon stockdown over 20% today and closed at $2.27. A number of other small E&P companies also had big losses. Crude Oil prices under $70 are remaining low because Saudis are keeping production up to squeeze smaller US companies. Saudis production costs are lowest in the world and supposedly they break even at $40 / barrel. The strategy is to force bankruptcy of many US E&P companies with much higher break-even costs. When these competitors no longer exist, the US production numbers will decrease as will total world supply,at which point crude prices will rebound. See Yahoo Finance for news and the names of other small US E&P companies that saw drastic declines in their share prices today.

Bob Rock:  Thanks for the  link, It is the correct link to the article I found in The State Journal out of Charleston, West Virginia. I was rather surprised to find the article   in a West Virginia publication. There may have been similar stories in  one or more Pennsylvania papers, but I did not see any. I know it is not a done deal, but I thought the article was very positive.
