Gas Oil Ratio

Halcon's announcement of the initial potential rate for the Horseshoe Hill 11-22H-1 yesterday revealed a higher than expected GOR.  I've integrated that into an updated GOR map of the play. It's starting to take some shape and reveal possibly some "dip oriented" trends versus just a "strike" trend aligned with depth.


  1. I am curious about you most recent comment on the TMS. I was hoping you would clarify it for me- if I am understanding the terminology.

    Is a "dip oriented" trend one that dips but continues flow rates where as the strike trend was the high initial output that then fizzled out quickly, as we have seen with many TMS wells over the past few years.

    Thank you for your valuable resource on the TMS.

  2. Dip and strike are geologic terms. Dip refers to the direction of depth increase. Strike would be the lateral orientation across the common structural datum. In this area, dip is "northeast-southwest". Strike is "southeast-northwest"

  3. OK- Thanks Kirk. I'm new to this terminology.

  4. What GOR do you feel will be optimal for a well in the TMS and at what depth/area do you think that will be found?

  5. FM,
    many GOR's will be optimal. The GOR map illustrates a general conformity to depth but has some embayments.
