Surface water use urged for 'fracking'
The bottom of the Smackover Formation is soon to be the test depth for new horizontal drilling. Southwestern Energy Production has almost finished drilling the Robinson 18-19 # 1-15H in Columbia County, Ark. The company on Sept. 27 permitted the Garrett 7-23-5H#1, serial # 243882 in Claiborne Parish. The well on record has no spud date.
