"Very interesting...the production pipe problem was at Beaver Run Reservoir in Westmoreland County. How about Marcellus Shale gas wells in the area. When will the industry drill wells that aren`t necessarily block busters but good…"
"naturally occuring brine in formations is a baseline characteristic. that wouldn't be expected to change with any natural event. however in the quest to improve ultimate recovery rates, many questions remain unanswered. huge amounts of gas…"
"Do the initial well core samples help to identify the composition of the shale and it`s likely hood of absorbing more or less water? The gas company should know early on how to manage water removal based upon these core samples ...…"
"you can Google the explanation of how shale absorbs water for a better understanding. the current best practice is simple though. frac wells with high pressure/high volume water with high sand loads up to 3000 lbs. per linear ft. flowback the well…"
"Thanks OT for sharing your knowledge of this industry. Sure sounds like a risky venture with known and unknown pitfalls to overcome. Will the industry know someday exactly what happened to this well? With regard to the…"
"a question going forward regards the second well being completed along with 1G. if that well is left to "water soak," the future production is negatively affected. research indicates after 30days without flowback shale swells and absorbs…"
"The Pittsburgh Post Gazette has reported that CNX will plug the Shaw 1G well and postpone fracking the other 3 wells on the pad. The delay to frack the other 3 wells may not happen until 2021. It has been reported that no harm is…"
"i wouldn't expect a rush to resume much activity around the reservoir until things simmer down a bit. pipe has ratings which the purchaser assumes is correct for the intended use, however we have all suffered disapointing results regarding some…"
"Do you think CNX will divert their drilling activity away from the Beaver Run Reservoir for awhile? If so, would they move towards their other holdings in Indiana or Jefferson counties?
Junk pipe sounds like a big problem potential for the…"
"the mud won't be forced up due to the specific weight chosen to hold the pressure. it would be pumped out. i don't know of this particular fix or if that would be their chosen method, but i believe it could be done. the DEP and public are…"
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 ]
