re: Tuscaloosa Marine Shale oil well sets record (for TMS) - 1540 - redstick13
[quote]Keep it in perspective. Colorado is 104,100 square miles big (8th largest state). Tires are 12 inches wide ±. Relatively speaking, about the same impact as a human hair on a football field. Pull back the lens.[/quote] The beauty of drilling and frack pads. Really enhances the views. [i...

[quote]Not unconventional I'm sure...Can't really compare that to a 1,000 bbl/day unconventional well..they're too entirely different ballgames. It might require drilling 20x more wells but the oil companies are still profiting from unconventional. Except in the tuscaloosa, of course [/quote] 10...

Don't have the AFEs in front of me but one was not extravagant and came in under budget. I was told it will be pure profit in a matter of months. The second was a real mess. Casing failures, multiple sidetracks, etc etc. They eventually T&A and came back and set a whipstock in the 9 5/8. We...

[quote]If they continue to cut drilling time and cost and have wells near the 1000/day the whole thing could explode.[/quote] Sorry but this just makes me chuckle when I see such low numbers. We just drilled back to back wells that are producing 10,000 bbls per day while choked back....

[quote]PE field engineers have the best chance of moving into a role with an operator due to their formation knowledge. Its just a bit tougher of a lifestyle than other PSLs.

[quote]I would look into the managed pressure drilling divisions of the major oilfield service companies. SLB, Hal, WFT all have a division. I think it is a big up and coming part of the oilfield and a lot of the operators are adopting the technology. [/quote] It's been around since the mid 90's...

[quote]As far as people complaining about Halliburton as a company, I've heard just as many bad things about every other service company. There's no green grass on the other side as far as I'm concerned. The promissed land will always be with the operators.[/quote] Halliburton isn't so bad. SLB ...
