"ODNR has not posted a map of the production unit for this well. Gulfports other wells completed before and after are online. This one is surrounded by lake Clendening. It will be interesting to see the size and location of the unit. They have been…"
"Is it a flexible water hose? There is a flexible hose running from the water tower up the hill in moorfield that is headed down the hill that way. The road ends, but it could run across several fields to the Ryser well. The rig is now south of 22…"
" I'm attaching an interesting Gulfport investor presentation. Pages 11-13 show their plans in the Utica. The map on page 11 shows two prospects in Belmont County which I have heard they are aggressively pursuing for their 2012 drilling…"
"The unit I posted looks like what they could hold with one well with leases that have no acreage specification.
I'd bet they are trying to fill in a lot of the "notches" in that unit so they can drill more laterals in the SE…"
"Finnbear.. Thanks for posting the permit plat. I've seen some others with 8000 foot bore's but none with that large unit acreage or configuration. Many variations of leases out there and this one is not one I would want.
The lease we…"
"Forgot to add that this lease also included ALL the coal associated gases. In Belmont, with all the coal issues, that is just asking for trouble, considering that very few in Belmont still have coal rights intact with their land. You can't…"
"Did that lease include all horizons, pipeline (for no additional pmt), conversion to storage for $5/acre/year FOREVER, the right to drill a water well on the leasehold for a frack water source, and force the lessor to warrant and defend title?"
"The lease they offered me last May was for 640 acres, but they could expand the drilling unit up to 1280, at their option. I think alot of landowners signed that lease, which had many advantages for the O&G company. The Antrim well that Gulfport…"
I was looking over a Gulfport lease offer last night for some southern Belmont acreage. It has NO acreage specification in the unitization/pooling clause. That would certainly allow some large unit sizes to be HBP. It also has a host of other…"
"I think you are correct. The unit covers 2 properties and does not include Consol property, although we have been told Consol leased some of its holdings to Gulfport. It also does not include a larger section of adjacent ZION property. Other…"
"It is the largest unit I've seen for a single well bore. Its size suggests they wish to hold all the acreage they currently have leased while its odd shape suggests they might be trying to add some adjacent acreage for future drilling of more…"
"Finnbear, Is this the first 1200+ acre drilling unit you have seen in Ohio? Can you tell us if all of the Gulfport permits are in the 1280 acre range ? That was one of Wishgard's main provisions. It will be interesting to see what a long…"
What makes this site so great? Well, I think it's the fact that, quite frankly, we all have a lot at stake in this thing they call shale. But beyond that, this site is made up of individuals who have worked hard for that little yard we call home. Or, that farm on which blood, sweat and tears have fallen.[ Read More ]
