Trinidad Rig # 125 Raises the Bar

Posted by bernell on December 5, 2014

Trinidad Rig # 125 has had consistently good drilling results for EnCana, but has taken a backseat to Trinidad Rig # 124 in many ways.

Not so today. 

A new record drill time for EnCana in the TMS has been set on, I think, the Longleaf 29H-1 well.  The Longleaf 29H-2 didn't take much time either since the total drill time was roughly 64 days.  I'm not sure of the exact number of days to drill -1, but it was under 30.

Other wells by other companies have been drilled faster, but those wells had a lateral of 1,000+ foot less.

Word is the Trinidad 125 is moving to the McIntosh/Reese site on Chance Road.  The original intent of this site was for 4 wells, but one of the units is experiencing some legal delays and, for now, it appears only one unit will be drilled.  I don't know which one, yet, but it appears both wells will be drilled.

While I'm giving a coffee break update this morning, I'll mention the Goodrich T. Lewis has had the intermediate cemented in place and is drilling in the curve at 12,000+ foot.  Nice progress for this well, too.

Folks with any news from any of the other wells/sites, please feel free to share.

The Friday Report will be late this evening, so feel free to use the Tips link above to share whatever info you have on your well.

What do you think about it?
