By the way most people over that way are signed up with and have already been paid by Hilcorp. Hilcorp didn't use the mines as an excuse to "due diligence" any landowner.

I have heard no news on the Shannon wells. Generally the mines under this area are about 100 years old. When they mined the coal back then they left most of it behind as support. Under my place they are about 80 feet below the surface. I am not a geotechnical engineer and cannot even guess what that would cause to a drilling platform. I hope they find it to be of no consequence and drill.

Elnathan, I never thought about the old deep mines and drilling but there were deep mines all around Stoneboro and Sandy Lake area years ago, especially over by the area you mentioned. If it's not a meteriorite it will be the deep mines. Any news on the Shannon wells (close to both of the above)?

Lake Twp Mercer County might be getting a well between route 62 and Strausser road. Chatwick Geotechnics is test drilling to determine feasibility of a well pad. This area is undermined with old coal mines and I am told Hilcorp is concerned about stability.

I'm guessing McDonald site to be north 1/2 mile of sheetz and to west of 18. Seen a bunch of stakes in field the other day. Thanks for the McKnight location chestnut run.

Bob Rock- McKnight well pad site is on Rutledge road east side of route 18. Hilcorp told us they have lots of plans for this year but there has been no activity @ proposed sites they stated would be drilled at start of year 2014/end of 2013. McDonald site not sure of location yet.

Comment by james on February 6, 2014 at 10:05pm
What good is the sites if you can't drill where you need to? The Halcon landman told me today that when they drill 2 wells that close together they like to drill one of them north laterall and one of them south laterall. I guess they can drill straight down, doesn't make sense to drill 2 wells less then 2 miles away the same direction?

It wouldn't be the first time Hilcorp made a pad and drilled a well without having all the property around them leased up. Seen it before.

Comment by james on February 6, 2014 at 9:21pm
Thanks Bob, I have talked to Western Land several times over the past year and they have been dragging their feet, looks like it might have been a bad move in their part. Looks like they may need us more then we need them right now. We have waited over a year with them messing around, not in any hurry now unless they pay us a good lease with good terms. My mom and aunt own almost the entire block north of both the Morton site and the Lyons site.

National Fuel on route 58 in Jefferson Twp. adjoining TGP station 219 on the north side along route 58 they have started a large project. A lot of heavy equipment in there today and they are moving dirt. National fuel has an old line that runs through that property. An employee from TGP told me he thinks that they are going to install two turbines. To my knowledge Seneca Resources has not drilled in Mercer County. Seneca Resources is the exploration and production company for National Fuel. A lot of exciting projects going on in Mercer County and it is getting hard to follow all of them. Thanks to all of you on this site we can try to keep on top of everything.
