"Zero news Lilly.
I did receive a letter regarding a solar farm on our property. Had to laugh, you can count the number of sunny days here on one hand. I hear other farms have received similar letters.
I have a relative who works for the county…"
The H5 horizontal well on the Jefferson Zigo pad was drilled down to 7825 ft at the bottom of the turn before going horizontal in to the Point Pleasant formation.. This new V7 well is permitted to drill to 5550 ft vertical in to the…"
"Actually Hilcorp filed for 6 new drilling permits, all on existing pads in Mercer and Lawrence counties. All were for "conventional" wells as in not horizontal. The permit for Jefferson Zigo was for a 5500ft vertical well. What…"
I still check in from time to time. Not much going on here.
To answer your question, I'm going to guess that Hilcorp will be back once the cracker plant is up and running. Rumor has it that Hilcorp dropped any lease that did not figure…"
I was thinking the same thing. I thought this site would explode when the news hit. This is HUGE for the Tri-state area. Maybe Hilcorp will start back drilling in a few years. It will be interesting to see what happens with lease…"
"Typical tree hugging left wing liberal Democrat. I guess the Saudi's must have donated more to the Clinton Foundation than the U.S.shale industry. Yet another reason NOT to vote for her. Like we needed another one!"
"Bob- Following the posts on the Beaver County site gives me some hope. As JR said, the cracker plant will change everything. Hilcorp is already signed up as a supplier.
WTF- I hear there was some sort of activity on Cornell Rd near Doc…"
Chevron made both the McCullough and the Bowser wells "inactive". Both are close to a pipeline, but were never tied in. My guess is that these were test wells to verify what was there. Chevron and Hilcorp are working together on joint…"
"Terri- I would suggest that you and Dexter get together and compare notes. You most likely will not hear anything from Hilcorp until well after the new Wengerd wells go in to production. I'm going to guess that it will be another 6+ months…"
We haven't been contacted by anyone from Hilcorp but from our original maps that we were mailed the one well D7 runs directly under our property. And we were within the 3000' radius so our well was tested. We were then sent the papers we had to fill out that if we default on our mortgage that the bank will get the royalty payments. But all that was quite some time ago. Did you receive all the packets with the bore layouts and stuff on it for the well you are by?
Interesting. He's in the process of selling now for some reason. Patty(Schiestle)Priester and I were in the same class in school and even Sunday school at Bethany UP for several years. I have known her almost all of my life.
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 ]
