  1. What do you think Kirk? Is this only a fair well? What would be a real good well in terms of bbls per day?

  2. FM,
    When assessing the results from this well, one must keep in mind that the wellbore had several issues and complications. From what I understand, they were able to get a 10 stage frac over part of the lateral. If that is accurate, than the rumored 500 bopd flowing is quite good. The high volume of water is one of the risks with the larger fracs. The Tuscaloosa sands below are very permeable and water bearing.

  3. If this well continues to flow at a rate of 500 bbls per day wouldn't this be a great success for a frac job in the TMS given the clay and lack of brittleness in this shale?

  4. FM,
    The BOE well was only a 5 stage frac across ~1000'. The permitted Encana Weyerhaeuser #1 has a planned lateral of 6700'. 500 bbls/day over 1000' is sounding encouraging. Keep in mind that you really don't know what you have with a "shale well" until you observe the decline for 6-12 months. The first year's decline is significant.

  5. I am getting the impression that not many observers have noticed that the production on this well is encouraging considering the short frac of less than 1000'. If they had noticed this, then I believe people would be more excited about this well as an indicator of Encana's early success. The 1st year decline rate is the key though,as you said.
