"It woke up the neighbors," a report from Linden, Roane County.
Resources well near Flat Run (Sam's Run) about one mile from the
line came in early Sunday morning. The operation involved several
months of drilling.
It is the sixth well drilled in Roane by Columbia, putting regional
deep well drilling on
Calhoun County has over 20 deep well permits issued, with the first
expected to be
drilled in short order. A joint venture between Cabot-Trio Petroleum,
local gas producers, will locate on the Ray Yoak property in the White
Pine area. "The
well is expected to slant under the Coleman Burrows property," they
said. Trio Petro
is associated with Ike Morris, Glenville oil and gas producer.
Producers say most of Columbia's deep wells report 8,000,000 (million)
cubic feet a
day production which translates into $88,000 a day sales ($11 per
thousand) or over
two and one-half million dollars a month per well.
Four of Columbia's wells in Roane are in production, including the
Epling and Tawney wells. A fifth well, Vineyard is on hold. The Linden
well off Flat Run
reportedly came in big.
