Clements Heirs Well and Adjoining Well. The Truth!!Below please find a post by scout.
Reply by scout on May 3, 2009 at 8:28pm Tom, what do you know about ETOCO well in T23 R14 S20? Serial #238870 (producing 353 bpd?). Isn't this close to the Cements Heirs well? Also isn't this oil and a big producer. Did I read this wrong? tia
I answered his question saying the Clements well had stated Perforating and Completing in the Haynesville. Both wells were drilled to approx 11,800'.
Guess what ? They were both tested for the Haynesville, and I have had some good reports of the well flareing very good and the well making a impressive noise when it was first tested. About 4 or 5 months later the well came in weak. Now a well very close and the well mentioned above which is a Dominock Well is supposed to have IP of over 350 BOPD. At first I was a little confused because the Haynesville isn't supposed to have oil, then I remembered the possibility of the Shale transition to Sand Formation.
He is my take on both these wells.
They were drilled to the Haynesville and tested.
They were plugged and brought back up to approx 9,700' and produced in the Cotton Valley.
This information is public information, but what they found at the bottom hole depth isn't. They paid for it and they aren't producing it at that depth. Now if they didn't find something on the Clements at 11,800' in the Haynesville why bother to go to the expense to drill that deep again?
With the cost of drilling and the price of gas it may be some time before we know what is down that deep this far north, but someday we will.
dbob, I went back and looked at archives and found the following. Starcke # 2 permitted to drill to 13,000 ft. CV was 10128, Smackover 10834 and Wildcat 13,000. Don't know what they found in lower smackover or deeper. This was a well that was reentered.
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
