Discussion On Central Louisiana Oil & Gas Activity
any more concise descriptions as to where these sites are?
The 974.1 acre unit in Wilkinson County is in the South one-half of Section 7 and all of Section 20 T2N R1E per the newspaper Woodville Republican on April 25th.
Other than myself, does anyone use street or road names in providing location info?
The newspaper does not publish the physical address or nearest intersection of the well units. The name of the well is Forest Creek 20-H-1. Maybe someone who lives near the unit can post a more concise description.
Hello, two basic questions if you don't mind:1. what is meant by "undip window"?2. what is the basic process for applying for units?Thanks very much. Wonderful blog.
I,too, was wondering what an "updip window" is, but there are folks on this blog who assume the reader knows everything there is to know about the oilfield industry, even if you're not a part of it. This blog appears to be geared towards the oilfield folks.
Updip is a geological term relating to a location higher up the structure. Oil and gas migrate to the highest possible point in a geologic trap. In these shale plays, the updip contains the oil window and with depth, gas typically increases.
Each state has its own process for unit application. Typically one submits a proposed unit with specific definitions relating to size, shape, and a definition of the vertical section. LA and MS have differences in their processes and procedures. Unitization can sometimes appear to be a science in itself.
Yes, this blog does lean towards the industry side. The purpose is to facilitate the distribution of accurate information in a timely manner to benefit all parties. GoHaynesvilleShale is probably a better site for conversation between landowners
