"Related to the engineering feats that Eclipse tried to be a leader in - we are seeing the market pressure to generate cash flow over achieving engineering miracles. The days of pushing to 3 mile laterals are behind us in Appalachia. Tons of…"
"I imagine that end of Q2-Q3 2019, we will hear something from Cabot on their Ohio exploration. When the plan was to spend ~$75 mill on exploration and their Permian exploration was a bust, investors are going to want to see some sort of return on…"
"More than likely its a redrill - indicated by 0100 at the end of the horizontal permit. Probably drilling the vertical deeper than the target formation to make sure they know exactly where it is and to calibrate their models. Then they will plug…"
"I think in general (very similar to what is happening in the Permian right now), companies are trying to get anything and everything. Investors liked to see 15-20% or higher growth rates and companies had to add land to produce more gas faster. Back…"
"Right. If a company can make more money by consolidating then they will continue to consolidate. We see it more and more each and every day. You either buy someone in your backyard or you buy something in another basin. EnCap is in the business of…"
"James - the only thing about the Knox is it is historically a structural play. It's nothing like the shale plays - Artex and Enervest were/are big players in the Knox in southern central OH. High risk, low cost, moderate reward has been the…"
"Millwood is right in the heart of Eclipse Resource's target area in Guernsey County - as well as Ascent. $14K per mineral acre to sell doesn't seem surprising. Eclipse has had great success in the condensate rich Utica."
"I think the economics are the most challenging portion of the Marcellus in Ohio. It's much shallower in Monroe County than Greene/Washington PA - if natural gas prices ever get back to $4-5/Mcf these could become more economic but will never…"
"I think this goes back to my comments a month or so ago questioning CNX in CPA. There is no doubt that there is gas here and in large quantities. But companies just dont understand the utica in PA as well as the Marcellus or even the Utica in Ohio.…"
"I think though that many of these older fields are on lower line pressure lines and do not have to compete for pressure until a sales point farther down the road.. i.e. they aren't competing as soon as the gas hits surface. Also with the…"
"Very easily could be the "Point Pleasant" as we often forget that the Utica Shale is actually an entirely different formation. But if Cabot wants some oil, it would be interesting to see them try out some horizontal Knox/Rose Run if the…"
"Awesome. Good to see they'll be able to get that gas out of there soon.
I had a chance to listen to listen to the operations and development section. I still think they are in the infancy of CPA Utica. I tend to believe them when they say that…"
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 ]
