Well we finished up with the maneuvers of BP in Trumbull and after we on GMS studied our sources and leaked information. Our information turned out to be correct as the local business magazines produced verification of what we on GMS already digested; even though the BP strategy is still uncertain.
Now we have information coming in from Columbiana. We know that since Easter, an industry brokerage has opened up Columbiana to leasing as a clean up phase. Most of the gathering pipelines have hooked up wells and Columbiana's cryogenics plant is humming along. The trunkline connecting two cryogenics plants are on schedule so Columbiana is now ready for production supplying the new infrastructure. As can be seen by Hilcorp in the north aggressively drilling since there cryo is going online and the pipelines are snaking forward, Columbiana has been at a standstill.......or has it?
Today, my sources tell me after being in Texas for a week, that Independent drillers are coming into Columbiana to begin widespread drilling. That's right folks, CHK, seemed to run out of gas in Columbiana and we heard CHK was in discussions. I guess the outcome is that we are going to see units thrown together and those new pipelines hooking more wells up. This is Great news!
are leases being renewed in mahoning co,,after the 5 yrs..my lease will end in 1 1/2 yrs..could i expect a renewed lease..
A month has passed. Can you announce who the independent drillers are yet? Thanks.
YOU LET US KNOW WHEN THEY START ISSUEING PERMITS IN COLUMBIANA OR MAHONING COUNTIES ....HASNT BEEN A NEW PERMIT ISSUED UP THERE IN ALMOST A YEAR NOW
Why are you so against Columbiana County? We are considered central not northern in the shale. We keep hearing that it will be good...not necessarily as great as in the Southern Counties but def not out of the picture. I wish everyone could be supportive of each other and hope that all does well. The Utica seems to change shape all the time.....I think everyone needs to just be patient and see what happens instead of bashing the invisible borders.
Michelle, As I have, you just have to learn to ignore them, it is obvious to majority on GMS that there is no depth in their hyperbole.
please do not include me in the hyperbole. I am not trying to make friends or enemies. I'm just asking on the basis of principal that an announcement about major players was made by you a month ago, and I'm now just simply wondering WHO.
