You can't get close to the SLC due to an attendant at the gate but you might be able to see the flare from that point. I am told it is in excess of 20 ft. which is as much a flare as the best well flares I have seen yet. It is as tall as any of the Anderson or 1st Foster Creek well's flares. No idea of flow rate yet -  plug drilling equipment just left site on Saturday so we are in early flow back.

Thank you, Steve! Definitely praying for the very best outcome for that well, and all of them. Thinking I just might take a ride to that part of the parish this evening to see what I can see. 8-)

Reports of a very nice gas flare at the Goodrich SLC in the northeastern part of W. Fel Parish. Visible from outer space I am told. Lets just pray it is not a gas only well.

Seeing Wells,  There are a half dozen or so unit applications approved in W. Fel  but no new well permits yet - other than the Goodrich SLC(being fracked now) and the Walker(operator?) well which should be spud  very soon. GDP has a unit application next to the old Devon Murphy well and Halcon has 3 units it took over from Encana (in the Mulberry Hill area generally) and there other are units formed near the Walker well.  There is only one other well pad already built that I know of (other than the Walker site) and that is on the Hamilton Willis property (not in any formed unit yet) - it was built by Encana 2 years ago and is now owned by Halcon - HK hasn't put it on a spud calendar yet but they did recently renew the lease.

I look there daily for updates and some how missed that.  Thanks

 Curious George,   I don't know if it is allowed here or maybe would just be impolite for me to send links to other websites from this site  - but, you can simply Google search "Kirk Barrel" and then click on the 1st listing and it will bring you to his June 23 blog post - the quotes are in the body of his post.

Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU! I understand there are more wells being drilled (by word of mouth) than there are located on the map I saw in June... now to go figure out how I found it before ;-)

Steve, 

 All that sounds great and from what I hear there may be activity picking up in W.Feliciana.  Where did you get that quote from Kirk?

Comment by Steve on July 10, 2014 at 11:46am

The SLC well may be the one to change the focus towards the west.

I think these recent comments from geologist Kirk Barrel are encouraging for us in W. Fel.

He believes a telling production metric is developing in regard to the effects of thickness of the TMS pay zone in different areas. West Feliciana has a relatively thick TMS pay zone compared to most other areas. Additionally the TMS is deeper in W. Fel. which means a higher gas to oil ratio(GOR) and less clay/more calcite - higher GOR is good to a point because increased gas helps push the oil through the rock and to the surface, potentially increasing flow rates and/or reducing decline rates. Increased calcite means potentially easier to frack and potentially a better natural fractured matrix in the rock. All of this is untested yet since we haven't had but on well so far (Murphy drilled by Devon 2 years ago near the Ms. line)

Kirk says:

“With a net pay of 75' (GDP's recent Nunnery well), this result is not only expected, but good for the pay thickness. The GDP Lewis 30-19H-1 has 110' of net pay and had an initial potential of 1450 boepd.”

“The net pay in the Beech Grove of 95' will not likely compare in result with the SLC 81H-1 (157')”
