Tyler: What is the name of this particular pipeline? And where is the cryogenic facility that you are talking about. I apologize for my ignorance. Is this the Kinder-Morgan project mentioned in the thread that you started some time ago to which the only reply was by Trapper November 2013? Also please reference a link to any map of the project that we are talking about. Thanks for your prior posts which have been quite helpful.

The pipeline has started.  It looks like it s working its way back from the cryogenic facility into PA.

Wow, a little flurry of activity here.  My offering:  The Palmer well is still flaring and is still a very impressive flame.  I have seen five firsthand and the Palmer is easily the largest fwiw.  Chevron has applied for a permit on Nate Bowser's property on Hosack Road in Jackson Center.  Now we know why Hilcorp assigned/sold ~10 local leases to Chevron.  Swepi is initially planning two wells from the Mills pad; one northwest (2089N-5HD) and one southeast (2089S-4HD) with two additional wells to the northwest(2089N-1&3HD) to follow at least.  The 4HD unit to the southeast will miss my plant's property by 150 feet and at least for the moment, they are not planning another lateral to the southeast .  Damn.  :(  So close...

Passed by some heavy equipment activity today on Buckwalter Rd which is south of 318 and close to Greenfield Rd. This is right where the pipeline, according to the maps, is suppose to cross.

Took a ride sound tonight to see if any work has been started on the Pennant Midstream pipeline. Didn't see anything except the road has been widened where Stiester Rd meets Siedel Rd (Hilcorp- Jefferson Montgomery site-Pennant Midstream end point)

Has anyone else seen any activity?

I'll have to go back and check, but I believe Halcon has up to an additional 3 permits for the Phillip site, so it supports the theory of a drilling process failure on the first well. I think Halcon applied for these permits after the initial well was drilled.

Phillips well results are poor d/t technological failure in drilling process per workers @ well site this past year.

Comment by Elnathan Cory on January 13, 2014 at 5:25pm

Thanks for the great response. While I was reading your response I was thinking about the possibility that the geologist/drill team didn't hit the bull's eye on the Phillips well too. Sometimes it doesn't take much of an error or bad luck to not get maximum results. Nevertheless they are drilling and apparently making money. I was looking at an old map that showed you owned some acreage in Lake twp? In any case all I want is Hilcorp in my back yard! Seriously! Hilcorp has a lot of leases that will start to run out in about 3.5 years. Happy drilling.

Elnathan: My take is that the Phillips well numbers are rather poor, but the James numbers are fabulous. If you assume that James will continue to produce at the current rate you can multiply their 7day numbers by 64 / 7 to find a meaningful comparison of what the two wells would theoretically produce over 64 days. Or you could divide the Phillips 64 day production numbers by 64 and the James production numbers by 7. This would give you a comparison of the daily production numbers for each well. James is apparently producing 214 barrels of oil per day which equals $21000 per day if oil is $100 / barrel. It is also producing just under 5000 of natural gas per day. If gas is $4.00 / mcf, this amounts to $20,000 / day. I don't know the size of the unit but the landowners who comprise it must have very large smiles on their faces. Although my land is in Venango County and is unleased, I believe that every good well in Mercer County is a plus for my own prospects. Let us all hope that future wells are even half as good as the James well. Let us also hope that the Phillips results are because of some technological failure in the drilling process, and not from poor geology.

So is this good in general for Mercer county?
