Wondering if anyone had any recent information on EOG's Thorogood well in southern Gonzales county?

I was originally supposed to be pooled in to this well and after completion the pool size dropped from 489 acres down to 56.6 acres and dropped us off of the pooling.

I was told that they ran into issues with the well including hitting a fault and that the well was mainly a "junk" well.

My question is how can they go from a pool that size down to only 56.6 acres, especially when the production test numbers looked so good.

They also have said that they are going to run another well on the same pad that will include me in the near future.

Also have said they are going to drill another well about half mile down the road that will be on another place of ours or my neighbors that will include me which will be called the STILL well.

I have seen no permits filled for either of the "new" wells.

Kind of wondering if I am just getting fed a bunch of manure.

Thanks for your input,

Just checked the Tx RRC site - Thorogood is doing fine / thru April 2015 the well has produced about 173 MBO & 166 MCF total / averaged about 560 BO & 800 MCF per day in April (but gas is being flaried / mo pipeline).

Other well on the same pad - or very nearby (Gibbons 1H) is also doing very well - cum production of about 176 MBO & 165 MMCF of gas thru April / averaged about 570 BO & 750 MCF per day in April (gas also being flared on this well).

This is an area of faulting but EOG has 3D seismic and should be able to avoid that type of geohazard.

RRC ID numbers are 18261 (Thorogood) and 18251 (Gibbons). District 1.

Found some additional data - EOG did lose the first horizontal drilled from this pad. The presently producing well bore is a sidetrack hole / re drill done after first hole was junked (so the info you got about faulting messing up the well was apparently correct).

I have never seen a unit this small in the Eagle Ford trend - there must be some sort of unique lese terms that prevent them from making it larger (but that is just a wild guess).

EOG just filed completions for 3 new wells in this area (near Glaze City on the county line) - each one has an IP of over 4000 BOPD.

Longer vs shorter laterals

This may have been discussed at length at some point on this forum so please forgive me if I'm repeating a question that may have been answered.

Six years ago CHK drilled wells with 5000ft laterals; recently they have come back and…
