Encana Raises The Drilling Bar
Encana has just finished drilling the Anderson 17H-1 in Amite County, Mississippi. The well, originally permitted for 19,117' with a TVD of 12,220', reached a total measured depth of 19,547'. Drilling of the well only took 39 days which represents a significant increase in drill time and cost reduction. The lateral length calculates to be 7327' which is a TMS record. Encana continues to be the aggressive leader in the TMS play. An offset, the Anderson 18H-1, is currently setting surface casing.
