Gulfport's Shugert 1-1H well was recently brought online from its resting period. When the test began the wellhead shut in casing pressure ("SICP") was 5,200 psi. The well was flow tested for 32 hours at a maximum rate of 20.0 MMCF per day of natural gas and 144 barrels of condensate per day on a 26/64" choke and a flowing casing pressure ("FCP") of 4,840 psi. Subsequent to the test, the 14 hour SICP was 5,300 psi. Based upon composition analysis, the gas being produced is 1,204 BTU rich gas. Assuming full ethane recovery, the composition above is expected to produce an additional 100 barrels of NGLs per MMCF of natural gas and result in a natural gas shrink of 17%. In ethane rejection mode, the composition is expected to yield 40 barrels of NGLs per MMCF of natural gas and result in a natural gas shrink of 9%. Gulfport currently anticipates it will begin flowing the Shugert 1-1H into a sales pipeline by early December.
Nice well. The Utica map is shaping up. The wet area is for real. I have questions about whether the oil window will prove profitable. I would like to see a little higher BTU count. Still a lot of potential fluids from stripping. The rock pressure of over 5000 psi is unreal. It will be interesting to see what the flow on these wells amout to after a years operations.
Some of the best wells are in the south of the wet area. A couple of months ago everyone was touting the Mahoning Valley.
I made a comment to money yesterday regarding this well location in relation to the super-rich Marcellus on WVa. side. Thinking that there may be a reasonable possiblity that a combination super-rich Utica and Marcellus west of this well in Belmont and eastern Marshall and Ohio counties WVa may exist. Perhaps beneth the Ohio River itself. I am sure the Utica is like the Marcellus, and vary in preformace from one place to another. We'll get some data in a few months from RRC as the Pa. area they are drilling in is consider part of the Hahoning Valley. Thinking ruling out any area is way early at this time. CNX/NBL SHL-series wells are beginning to come on line. Limited data but reports of 72 bbl or so per mmcf. That would be approx double or perhaps triple of this well in liquids per day. Also find it interesting that CNX Westorland Co. well at 17.9 mmcfd produces 500 bbld condensate. This is well is way out of the so-call wet area by some. It perhaps may extend the wet Marcellus area further north and west. Everyone has variance in the way they report well data for one reasonor another. On the Utica oil side, Marathon announced yesterday it is expanding their Wellsville Ohio plant to 24K in by truck per day and loading up to 50,000 barrels per day onto barges on the Ohio river. So I suspect Utica oil in there. Are you still in MWE? Haven't see a post from ya in a while. Everyone has been a little quiet until recently.
