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.

Looks like the gas is going to flow east and end up in the Henderson pump sta.

JR - how do you read the map? Looks to me that the pipeline ends/begins at the Colpetzer farm on Route 19 just south of Laver Rd. How does the pilgrim we'll figure into this?

Halcon Allam to Pilgram pipeline notice from the Army Corps of Engineers.  Copy and paste the highlighted link for the maps.  One of my contacts who has land in the pipeline's row brought this in for me.  Interesting that the gas is to flow eastwardly through the pipeline

JR: Thanks for the correction. I did mean "western VenangoCounty" and not "eastern Venango County" in my previous post.  I can blame my error on having had a "senile moment" but you are too young to avail yourself of that excuse. for your error. 

Comment by JREwing on November 21, 2014 at 11:12am

I meant to write "sse of Camp Perry" in my post below and I believe Sam meant to say western Venango county regarding the drilling of a several test wells.  Cold air must be affecting our sense of direction.  lol

Comment by Samuel J. Orr on November 21, 2014 at 10:43am

What does this  mean? My guess (no information to back it up) is that Halcon has no intention of ever building this pipeline. By getting the permits to build the pipeline (which permits are likely assignable) Halcon will enormously enhance its ability to sell off its acreage in  north-eastern Mercer County and western Venango County. Halcon's stock is in the toilet and it debt-load is overwhelming, especially with currently depressed crude oil prices. I would expect that these permits presage the sale of Halcon's "goat pasture", to an O&G company who has both the desire and the financial ability to develop these assets. The Allam well near Polk is a decent well but not a great well.  Because there were many technical problems in developing the well, and because fracking techniques have improved since that well was drilled, I suspect that the Allam test results may  underestimate the the area's geology and its true potential production. I can hardly wait to see who is going to be the buyer. Whoever it is, I would think they would probably drill at least a half a dozen test wells, with at least several in eastern Venango County. All pure speculation on my part. It will be interesting to see what really happens.

@ deer spotter - Yes, Halcon purchased property the TGP pipeline runs through formerly part of the James Albaugh property on Laver road.  About 2 miles ssw of Camp Perry as the crow flies.  13.951 acres and right across RT 19 from the Colpetzer farm that JohnL referred to below.

Comment by deer spotter on November 21, 2014 at 7:46am

Is Halcon"s pipeline in the Camp Perry area where NFG has an interconnect with the TGP? 16 inch is a lot of pipeline to feed one well. More activity coming? Seneca has a large amount of acreage in the area and had very good results from the test well drilled in the Polk area. However for the next several years they have committed to the Claremont area in McKean and Elk Co. Infrastructure is already in place in that area. This could be a game changer.
