Does anyone know about Stedham wells? I couldn't find ip on Stedham 1H. I did find ip on 2H. Has anyone gotten division orders on these wells? Was there a problem with Stedham 1? Thanks
There has not been any production reported from Stedham 1H through December and I have a note in my files that it is being used as a (pressure) monitor well. RRC seems to be experiencing "technical difficulties" this morning so I can't track down just where I got that note but I'm fairly certain that it came from the "well record only" report filed back in April last year.
Can a pressure monitor well be converted to conventional well at future date?
Probably... but I don't see it as likely. This the third or fourth monitor well I've noticed in the Haynesville, so far. They are gathering science on this field and the monitor wells are part of that process, I believe.
Here is the well record for the Stedham SU #1. It is a vertical well. Scroll to the bottom of page two for the notes on the well status.
Thanks for the information. It just looked like they drilled the pressure testing well to 19,000 ft.
It looks (to me) like they drilled the lateral and then plugged it off.
Pardon my ignorance but owning a small portion of the well I am interested. If they choose not to produce gas from the well, how do they retain their ownership?
The unit is held by production from the Stedham 2H.
Just to keep everyone from being confused, the well you reference (260834) is a James Lime well drilled by Southwestern. The Exco Haynesville Shale wells named Stedham SU (no "a" in the first part of name) are 1H (405-30371, monitor well... no production) & 2H (405-30433, producing).
The James Lime unit boundaries may or may not correspond with the Shale unit.
