Gas well operations to resume in East Vandergrift

Gas well, great way to make extra money...  (Jun 30, 2008 | post #1)

Natural Gas

Private natural gas well

New here and got some questions. I'm in western Pennsylvania and a gas well was just drilled 3200ft down. They estimate the flow to be over 2 million+ cfm free flow/day but caped head is only 15PSI. They figure gas is leeching out into a porous formation somewhere between the bottom and where the casing ends at 1600ft. They estimate the PSI should be over 100 and higher so in the nest few days the well is getting logged. They figure that the casing will need to be extended deeper. There's another well 800ft away that is 2800ft down and only has 15PSI head pressure but is making about $1500/month for the owner at 1/8 royalty and is considered decent for the area. Most of the other wells in the area are shallow being 1600ft and have compressors to get the gas out. Once they get the internal leak figured out.. they said it's going to be a very good well$$$. That said, this is all new and interesting and wondering where I can find geological maps showing the different sand formations and what depth they are located at? thanks  (Jan 15, 2008 | post #167)
