This site is not very active, and neither is the gas business around my area! There's still some equipment moving around but nowhere near the truck traffic there was. Is the 'boom' over? Is there activity anywhere else in TC? Are a lot of wells online now, and everyone else is just sitting back, enjoying their royalty checks?
Shell has already set up all the units in Delmar township, and drilled at least verticals to hold the leases. I wonder if they will abandon units or reconfigure them if the Seismic shows good/bad areas?
I don't think they would change units on a holesale volume the seismic would probably give them the best depth to drill for the thickness of the shale,if you look at duncan on e-facts they redid the permits to drill deeper because the shale is thicker than they thought.
I spoke to the Seismic people today,they said the Sabinsville seismic won't be done till mid to late August,he said he couldn't tell me where the golden egg is buried but this is a very rich area,so I think thats good news.
Any News on that yet Lynn?
I haven't heard anything from Shell since I signed my lease. I'm not in a unit yet or anything. I've heard on and off from the seismic people, and they seem to be done in this area; they were here a couple of weeks ago filling in holes and picking up their stakes and tape.
The Hege well is being fracked and there's pipeline connection activity at the Brown well.
On Burg Rd which is off West Branch Rd just south of Thumptown.
http://www.esaapg2012.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/TS-V-Abstracts... Long article but last page speaks about Tioga county PA. If i'm understanding it correctly they are saying the early drilling that was done in Tioga in the upper layers reduced preasures in the Marcellus ? The 3-D seismic early on can help in identifying these area's and help the drilling plan?
went by woodlot yesterday recorders, stakes, ribbons all gone . would hardly know they had ever
done a 3d ? now set back and see what happens if anything
Tom the Sabinsville 3-d is moving west they are in Chatham now its almost done.The 3-D people at the Middlebury firehouse said the Sabinsville 3-D area is a hot area but they would not say anymore,so we have to watch now and see where the action is. I was told the valley from RT.287 and RT. 249 all the way up through Chatham is good.
Seismic testing occuring big time in Rt. 287 and Rt. 414, new helipad put in on Ostrum rd..
