During A 4 hour production test Wednesday September 18, the Turner produced 52 bbls of oil.
This is what an oil well looks like!
Finishing up the Turner Tank Battery. Yes, we buy used tanks whenever we can. We have them internally lined with plastic. Its significantly cheaper and they last longer than a brand new steel tank. They will be painted up to match soon.
Last Saturday we perforated the zone and ran tubing and packer. Sunday, working in the rain, we began swabbing the well to clean up the formation for a flow test. Thunderstorms shut us down and it will be a few days before the weather clears up enough for us to get trucks back into the location.
We did swab back OIL on the first several swab runs before we had to shut down. It is too early to draw firm conclusions.... however, I am extremely optimistic and excited about the potential that the LDF #3 well will produce oil. This could be VERY GOOD for all of us.
If you notice in the picture some grey stuff floating in the oil, that is old drilling mud from when they plugged the well. We need to get the remainder of this thick, dehydrated drilling mud out of the formation before the well will flow test.
This picture is of the cased hole gamma ray log of our target interval. The yellow bracket shows the 90’ of sand.The red X is where we perforated.
Pioneer Wireline on location a few moments after perforating.
Everyone please note I said may have to do a “cement” job to clean up the old Drilling mud.I meant, we may have to do a small ACID job to clean up the old drilling mud.
Location built. Flowlines approved. Will be drilling in the next few weeks.
We had a little trouble with the current county commissioner on getting flowlines approved from the Turner to the disposal. We have final approval to lay flow lines so we're going to be doing the King Sand test in a few days.
IT IS HOT IN SOUTH TEXAS!!!
The Good News... The well bore is in excellent shape. Now that we have worked in the well we are not concerned with deterioration of the steel casing due to age, It is in good condition.
The Bad news...there is more cement in the well than we anticipated so it will take a few more days to drill to TD. There are thunderstorms in the forecast every day this week but with a little luck we will get a production flow test this coming weekend.
The crew has worked 8 straight days so we gave them today and tomorrow off. We'll be back at it Wednesday.
