Simply put A tight hole is, The Company does not want any information about what is happening at the well site . This may be so the company may think that they might encounter problems drilling the well and don't want that information out to other Companies working in the area. Or they might want to deal with other Companies on their acreage.
I have been told not to release any info on CV wells after logging, said we were on the "biggest thing in North LA". Now those wells are making 40MCFD. But, being tight on a HS well is usually a good sign.
iamwhatham and BirdDawg, I appreciate the information. I've been checking on the Sonrise website and recently found out that information is published in the Sunday business section of the newspaper, but didn't realize there was a local number that I could call. Anyway time will tell and the neighbors and I will remain hopeful. Thanks again.
It also means that the hole is tight......meaning they might have had some problems running the drillstring in/out of the well in certain formations. If the shale gets wet (absorbs to much water) it will swell up and make the hole "tight" that is one of the reasons that they change the mud from water base to oil base before drilling into the HS formation.
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
