Subject: Urban Relief well remedy Boots & Coots may use… Q on proximity needs & suggestion for advanced kill well placement
Jim, I was reading the Drillingahead blog…can you find out if Boot & Coots has to come to an urban area for an outta control well if they plan on digging an relief/kill well “vertically parallel (alongside), not perpendicular” to the existing well. If so, then how close can they get because some setbacks in Arlington may not allow this remedy. Those wells should be first on the list to be capped once they peter out in production…I would cap them now where relief/kill wells aren’t possible.
For those wells that do have the space for a relief well, should those have the risk/reward scenero applied…you know can’t ask for the moon here..it would be more reasonable to ask for capped wells after they peter out if the relief well scenario is unreasonable in urban settings.
Can we have someone plot where each relief well would go for each gas well in Arlington so we get an idea of what added risks we have in that a structure may be in the way of where a relief well needs to go in the worst case scenario.
Also find out if they could use another nearby padsite to reach the outta control well, and if we could have in place one well at each site designed just for Boot and Coots to use so that it is almost ready to go when they arrive?
