Today it came up on the ODNR site under County Engineer's part. PAC Drilling is now on the list for a horizontal Clinton well to be drilled in Liberty Twp. Unit size 170 acres. What is your take on this? PAC Drilling is from Bolivar, Ohio.
Drilling in densely populated areas presents a variety of difficulties. Perhaps, if successful, this venture will bring a new round of oil and gas development to urban areas in Trumbull and other counties.
PAC has been drilling in that area for several years, te company must like the production. Maybe this will increase development there.
I thank all of you for your comments. It would be nice to see an uptick in G&O activity outside Munroe and Belmont counties here in Ohio. Let's keep each other informed of what is going on.
Very cool, will stay tuned to see how this goes. Any new development is good IMO no matter the location.
With all due respect, you stand corrected.
The oil from the Clinton is "light" crude.
We've read on here that our domestic refineries in the southern U.S. use heavier oils that have been purchased from South American sources and Mexico. So it appears now we have any kind of domestic oil that we need.
All that needs done is to develop it !
@barry-d, Have read elsewhere on here that the oil in my geography is supposed to be of the 'black oil' characterization. Local drillers have also characterized it's (the Clinton's production) color as black. The Utica's oil product has been characterized as almost clear on here. Perhaps it's all 'Jargonic' and the 'Light Crude' in the Clinton is black in color but still most correctly termed as 'Light Crude' ? Chalking it all up to oil patch jargon myself. Thanks barry-d.
Wondering if they were totally revamped ? Wondering if they can process both heavy and light (condensate as you've termed it) ?
Does anyone know much about this PAC drilling Co.? What other companies have done or expressed interests in horizontal wells in the Utica in NE Ohio or other areas? Thanks for any information you can provide.
Thank all of you for the information, it looks like there may be a future for some horizontal wells in the Clinton sandstone.
Now that is interesting. What is the White Clinton is it a subformation of the Clinton and do you know the difference between the two? Thanks!
Stray Clinton Red Clinton, White Clinton.
Most gas/oil is produced from "Clinton" wells is from the "White"Clinton
Thank you barry-d.
Apparently a specific type of 'Clinton' but prolific producer.
I wouldn't put to much thought into it.
It's the "Clinton". Nothing new.
Hard not to think about new long bore horizontal wells in northeast Ohio (any horizon - Rose Run, Clinton, Utica, Marcellus, or any other) from my perspective !
Your Friend On GMS,
Thank you Mr. James.
Forecasting royalties, income and production for your wells.
