Oilfield​

Postby ohiosteve » Thu May 18, 2017 10:36 pm

I enjoy reading the oilfield talk on this site. Instead of Hi-jacking threads like I usually do (accidentally), I thought I'd try to start a thread. I know I'm just an Ohioan, but from what has been going on around here I'm starting to think Ohio is the new Texas. In town lately I've been seeing a helk of a lot of Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Canadian licence plates.

Greybeard, what am I missing? Is this just current drilling? When I clicked on rigs by state it indicates KS has 0. We have 5 on the ranch and new wells are being drilled locally.

Dunno, but the Baker Hughes rig count is usually pretty accurate, assuming the production and drilling companies report their activity as required.

You have 5 drilling rigs on your ranch right now?
5 of these?

(If they have tires, they aren't drilling rigs)

A friend of mine who is a Geologist on his last year of teaching at Morehead State University is now consulting. He has focused his research on fossils of the Carboniferous period. He is working on a project that is exploring in Kentucky and Ohio. His payment is a vested interest. They are going much deeper into the formations below the Carboniferous period.

I was being sarcastic about Ohio being the new Texas, but it's hard not to notice the increase in activity the past few years. Especially in southern Ohio down where M.magis lives. I think I could drive to 23 rigs pretty quickly. Most of those rigs are directional. I've seen as many as 12 Wells on one pad not more than 50 ft apart. The pipeline activity is crazy.

There's way more than 18 rigs in the Gulf of Mexico off Louisiana. What Baker is calling rigs is different from what we call rigs. Heading south out of Port Fourchon, Louisiana at night looks like a city in the gulf.

I had super at an BBQ steakhouse in Portsmouth, Ohio with Charlie. If you are ever there, ask about the place. Ribs and steaks.

He is pretty excited about the possibilities that some of the old Paleozoic units on the Appalachian mountain flanks offer. He got involved when oil prices were higher so the drop has been a concern.

And one two weeks ago after a leak. They had to suck out about 90 barrels. :mad:

Been there..worked there.
Are they in La waters or federal lease block waters?
Drilling rigs or production rigs?

That, /\ /\ /\ is a drilling rig.

TC:
3 of the pics you have posted are not drilling rigs.
2 are oilwell pump jacks--the well has already been drilled, production casing set and they are pumping oil out of the ground.
1 is a workover rig.

The other one looks like a drilling rig--a double. I haven't seen a double outside daylight double WOs in a long long time.

Baker Hughes rig count only counts rigs that the derrick is up and the well has been spudded already--in other words, the bit is drilling ahead.
Production platforms, workovers, tubing units, frac units aren't drilling rigs and aren't in the count.
