Discussing the Eagle Ford, Pearsall and Permian plays
New at this, but I noticed EOG has a lot of tanks set up with pipeline going t well and gas flaring at the Lang 11H well close to our property in Wilson County. Does anyone have any idea of what's going on?
Would greatly appreciate info if available.
Re: Lang 11H P&A Filing
Attached is P&A filing for this well. Surprised that EOG is not planning to use this wellbore for an EF test but plugging back and drilling a window. However, the paperwork indicates that there 4 1/2" casing tied back to surface - if this cannot be cut and pulled at a depth sufficent to allow EOG to do a plugback, the EF horizontal option is probably mechanically impossible.
However, this P&A paperwork may be part of a process to plug off the Pearsall lateral and set bridge plugs to isolate the deep section but allow for wellbore use for additional drilling (e.g. EF lateral).
Key will be the ability to get casing cut and pulled.
As usual, time will tell.
Thanks, I figured they might be doing this as last production report was one (1) barrel. Wonder if they are doing the P & A to maximize acreage to its maximum potential. Just a thought.
Someone (perhaps it was you) mentioned early in the history of this thread that the Lang 11H was not in a great position within this unit to allow for optimum horizontal length. So that may be part of the reason for EOG opting to plug this well.
Considering that EOG could have put this well anywhere on the unit, I have to wonder why they did not plan better for possible future wellbore utilization.
Yep, Brent, as we would have put it in simpler and simpler-minded times, this thread is a Goin' Jesse.
Marcus Aurelius, if EOG want to develop out this rather large 1,316 acre Unit (maybe depending upon outcome of Lang 1H), I'd have to think that they'll back up to the N-NW boundary and start closer to a point on the line between 1H and 4H. With pad drilling and rigs, can get a two-fer or three-fer and redo something colinear with the 11H wellbore at much more economical length.
This raises a question about a similar well: Did they file a P and A for Bighorn, another Pearsall test not too far away?
Haven't seen any P&A paperwork for Bighorn 1H yet. That may still be "economic' and holding some rights HBP.
But it may just be a matter of time.
Side note on Lang 11H plugging - it may take months for the actual P&A operations to take place on this well. I have seen long time period pass on some wells between Tx RRC fliing and actual plugging activities.
As usual you were right on the money on the Lang 11H. They worked all day today plugging the well. According to my brother, they are pulling the 4" casing and leaving the 7" casing in place.
That is going to be EOG's Ear In The Ground to monitor all the fracking in the surrounding area.
Well so much for the 11H, on to the Lang 1H. Mark I do not doubt you on the timing of the fracking of the Lang 1H.
what all does all this mean? more delays? or just normal activity in completing a well . . .again, your input and perspective is greatly appreciated.
Plugging operations on the Lang 11H have nothing to do with drilling on the Lang 1H.
Everything will happen in time - just tough waiting
thanks for the quick reply . . .everybody at EOG (when you can get someone to talk
to you) says be patient, Lang will be very good. I just read too much and "get ahead" of myself . . .it helps to hear from someone like y'all give your impression o
of the news.
We are all impatient for results, however EOG is going to do what EOG is going to do and at their pace. So we wait and take consolation from the voices of experience on this forum i.e. Mark, James Maxell and all of the informed folks who contribute updates on what's going on in the area.
Kenneth to borrow from James Maxell, "we are all waiting for that tsunami of bucks from southwest Wilson County". LOL
love Mr Willingham.--- Keep us posted Boss
