Greetings,  I just found a few enthusiastic referrals to your wall in other forums.  (By way of introduction) I've been somewhat active in the Crawford Co group for several months, and started one thread of my own on fair leases. I've been hoping someone would post something on how to estimate (however crudely) well flow from photos of the flare. I did read somewhere that it's possible, and perhaps was the old school first estimate method.  Do you know if it's possible to do and how to do it?  We finally got a photo of the Pettis Rd well, which is the first horizontal in central Crawford, and it would be real nice to get some numbers (even a good guess) without waiting for production.

Thanks in advance,

Bob Jenness
