Does anyone have any information on this well that was being drilled by Recoil Resources?  Rumors are they hit a fault line.  Apparently, the drilling rig packed up and left.  What does mean for the well in the future?

I do not have direct info from Recoil but do have an opinion as to what is going on here. Recoil has permitted five Eagle Ford horizontals in this area. They have used the same rig (Trinidad 139) to drill and set surface casing for each well one after another instead of drilling the "complete" well (ii.e. the lateral). By doing their drilling in this "batch" manner, they are saving money.

I would anticipate that they will eventually bring in a rig (perhaps the same one) to start drilling the lateral parts of wells.

I have seen notes in the Tx RRC site that indicate that Recoil did have problems setting cement while running casing on the Yosko B, however. But it appears that they corrected this problem.

Thank you for the information.
