TERRYVILLE AND RUSTON FIELDS
Docket Nos. 16-121 and 16-122
LEGAL NOTICE
STATE OF LOUISIANA, OFFICE OF CONSERVATION, BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA.
In accordance with the laws of the State of Louisiana, and with particular reference to the provisions of Title 30 of Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950, a public hearing will be held in the Hearing Room, 1st Floor, LaSalle Building, 617 North 3rd Street, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, at 9:00 a.m. on TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2016, upon the application of MRD OPERATING LLC.
At such hearing the Commissioner of Conservation will consider evidence relative to the issuance of Orders pertaining to the following matters relating to the Lower Cotton Valley Formation, Reservoir A, in the Terryville Field, and Cotton Valley Zone, Reservoir B, in the Ruston Field, Lincoln Parish, Louisiana.
1. To authorize MRD Operating LLC to drill, designate and utilize two (2) cross unit horizontal laterals as alternate unit wells for LCV RA SUWW in the Terryville Field and CV RB SUP in the Ruston Field, at the locations and in the general manner shown on the plat submitted with the application, or within a 100' radius of such locations, provided there are no perforations in the wellbores closer than 330' to any unit line other than the common unit boundary between the LCV RA SUWW and CV RB SUP.
2. To confirm that with respect to the subject horizontal laterals for the Lower Cotton Valley Formation, Reservoir A, in the Terryville Field and Cotton Valley Zone, Reservoir B, in the Ruston Field, where the horizontal lateral portion of the wells is cased and cemented back above the top of the Lower Cotton Valley Formation, Reservoir A, and Cotton Valley Zone, Reservoir B, the distance to any unit boundary and any offset well(s) should be calculated based on the distance to the nearest perforation in the wells, and not based on the penetration point or terminus.
3. To establish that these alternate unit wells are necessary to efficiently and economically drain a portion of the Lower Cotton Valley Formation, Reservoir A, underlying LCV RA SUWW and Cotton Valley Zone, Reservoir B, underlying CV RB SUP.
4. To find that unit production from the cross unit laterals should be allocated to each unit in the same proportion as the perforated length of the laterals in each unit bears to the total length of the perforated laterals as determined by an “as drilled” survey performed after the cross unit wells are drilled and completed.
5. Otherwise, to authorize the unit allowable for these units to be recovered from the existing wells, the proposed alternate unit wells, or from any combination of such wells, at the discretion of the operator.
6. To the extent necessary, to approve the location of the proposed alternate unit wells as exceptions to the field spacing rules for the Lower Cotton Valley Formation, Reservoir A, in the Terryville Field and the Cotton Valley Zone, Reservoir B, in the Ruston Field.
7. Except to the extent inconsistent herewith, to confirm and continue in effect the provisions of Office of Conservation Order No. 370-B-6, effective February 18, 1982, as amended and supplemented by the 370-B Series of Orders, and Order No. 164-HH-1, effective September 26, 2007, as amended and supplemented by the 164-HH Series of Orders, and all applicable Statewide Orders.
8. To consider such other matters as may be pertinent.
The Lower Cotton Valley Formation, Reservoir A, in the Terryville Field, was defined in Order No. 370-B-6, effective February 18, 1982 and was redefined as to LCV RA SUWW in Order No. 370-B-164, effective October 21, 2008.
The Cotton Valley Zone, Reservoir B, in the Ruston Field, was defined in Order No. 164-HH-1, effective September 26, 2007, and was redefined in Order No. 164-HH-18, effective April 8, 2014.
A plat is available for inspection in the Office of Conservation in Baton Rouge and Shreveport, Louisiana.
