The only thing going on in this area that I know of is Range Resources is going to be doing some work on the pipeline that runs through my moms farm. The landmen told me the wells drilled in this area are very good and they are possibly going to start leasing again. Fwiw

James: Have you heard whether or when Hilcorp may drill the 2 parcels that they have permitted near you or your folks property? , I am speculating, (and it is only speculation) that we may not see much going on in our area until 2016, and possibly not until 2017 or even 2018. I have no real facts to back up any of this. Frankly, I hope my guesses are way off and that you and I and a bunch of other people in our area get leased in 2015 and that we get leases with at least decent, if not spectacular, bonus money.

How have you been Sam? The activity in our area could put me to sleep, lol.

Company wiener roast. They needed long hotdog sticks to avoid the hot flame.

Late reply to OWNER'S question, My understanding is that Halcon wants to sell their Venango County acreage and possibly all of their northern Utica holdings though I am not so sure about the latter.  I have been told by someone I trust that Halcon did a 28 or 30 day repeat flare of  the Allam well in the hopes that the flare would remain strong. If that happened and the well repressurized thereafter, those facts would tend to establish value for the acreage that Halcon wishes to sell. There may be people with more technical knowledge who have a different and perhaps better understanding of what HK's reasons were for re-flaring the well.

As of last week nothing new on the Brosius site.

Does anyone know when they stopped flaring the Allam well?  Does anyone have any information on the Brosius site?   Thanks

This site is deader than a dead cat!

Sounds good for Venango county. Anyone know if Chevron has started the 2 new wells on the Brosius pad?

Yeah, I was by there tonight, it seems bigger then it has been over the past 2 weeks.
