TERRYVILLE AND WEST SIMSBORO FIELDS Docket Nos. 17-274 and 17-275
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, MAY 16, 2017, upon the application of RANGE LOUISIANA 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 and West Simsboro Fields, Lincoln Parish, Louisiana.
1. To authorize Range Louisiana Operating, LLC to designate and utilize its Lomax 35-26 HC No. 1 Alt Well (SN 249656) as a cross unit alternate unit well for LCV RA SU55 in the Terryville Field and LCV RA SUB in the West Simsboro Field at its as drilled location shown on the plat submitted with the application.
2. To confirm that with respect to the horizontal wells for the Lower Cotton Valley Formation, Reservoir A, where the horizontal lateral portion of the well is cased and cemented back above the top of the Lower Cotton Valley Formation, Reservoir A, the distance to any unit boundary and any offset well should be calculated based on the distance to the nearest perforation in the well, and not based on the penetration point or terminus.
3. To establish that the cross unit alternate unit well is necessary to efficiently and economically drain a portion of the Lower Cotton Valley Formation, Reservoir A, underlying LCV RA SU55 and LCV RA SUB.
4. To find that unit production from the cross unit well should be allocated to each unit served in the same proportion as the perforated length of the lateral in each unit bears to the total length of the perforated lateral as determined by an “as drilled” survey performed after the cross unit well is drilled and completed.
5. To authorize the unit allowable for LCV RA SU55 and LCV RA SUB to be recovered from the unit wells, the existing alternate unit wells, the subject well, or from any combination of such wells, at the discretion of the operator.
6. To the extent necessary to approve the location of the well as an exception to the field spacing rules for the Lower Cotton Valley Formation, Reservoir A.
7. Except to the extent inconsistent herewith, to confirm and continue in effect the relevant 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 including Order No. 370-B-291, effective August 30, 2016, Order No. 327-H, effective January 8, 2013, as amended and supplemented by the 327-H Series of Orders, including 327-H-8, effective August 30, 2016 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 SU55 in Order No. 370-B-198, effective April 30, 2013.
