Does anyone know much about the giant site that is being built next to Flynns Tire on Rt. 62. I heard that it was Hilcorp and possibly the James site? Not sure though. It looks large, must be a pond being built also.
I also heard that Chevron is picking up speed, but I haven't seen much on the DEP eFacts site regarding Mercer Co permitting for new wells lately.
I imagine that midstream infrastructure will need upgraded in many areas if they get into some good Utica/PP wells. I don't think that Mercer Co. has the pipeline to get the gas to market.
That is the hilcorp --james well site. There is some large gas pipelines in mercer county,Tennessee natural gas has comperssion station on rt. 58 with permits being applied to build another on other side of road.
Biggest problem will be all of the oil flowing from mercer county to get rid of it !
We had a guy today come with a permit to be signed from Vector to do seismic testing in and around our property. Going to do in ground blasting and thumper truck testing up and down the road. Must be going to get more activity in western West Salem Township. He told me that Halcon was buying up a lot of other land leases and they had some 150 square miles to do testing on.
correct me if I am wrong, but isn't 318 due south of the james well location? Do you know how to find out who is included in the units?
I don't know the exact route but just around my immediate property. In reference to my property, the well is coming North East from Lamor rd. It will cross Zahniser Rd and then Rt 62 around the Flynn's area. It isn't tying into the TGP lines. I heard at one time they were putting in two lines and one would follow the TGP and cross RT62 at the bottom of Wallis Hill. They decided not to do this because they didn't want to deal with the wetlands. I am going to join the Marcellusgas.org site today. sounds like good data! They just put up a huge fence around the james well. I am guessing this is for a pond.
why would they run two legs parallel to each other? I downloaded the maps and they are really close to each other. Unfortunately, the 3000' circle just misses my property.
I have been speaking with the Nisource people and they are trying to get a pipeline in soon so that the James well can tie into it and then the gas will be sent to the New Middletown, OH Cryo plant. However, they are limited on time based on the migration of the native brown bat that is set to arrive back in the area in a month or so. So, if they don't get the trees down before then they are at a stand still until November. Also, they do not want to tie into the Tennessee lines when they can make more money with their own....so....it's a RACE!!
They told me the same thing Christa. They want to start dropping trees by mid-March. I don't think they will make it especially since most of us haven't signed yet. By the way, if you would like to compare contract talk drop me a line. For instance, I am trying for a 10% annual rent clause. I can't say it's working but it's worth a shot.
WE ARE TOO Bill!!! LOL We tried the Wheelage route but they didn't budge!! Our next step was the annual rent. Our rep told us that he is almost 100% sure they will put in a second one right next to this one. He also told us they want to start dropping trees March 1st. He said they can do 5-6 miles/day. We got him to up on destruction price but stuck with the $1/inch/foot. I fdon't think they'll get in done in time either. But I also talked to the DEP and they said there is a way around the brown bat...you have to have all the trees cut at night when they leave the trees so that when they return in the morning they'll just find another tree. It's going to be interesting!!
