Thanks for the info.
Before I posted, I also did some checking because I recalled a bit of the hype surrounding the Deepwater Horizon having accomplushed the drilling.
The write-ups were the normal jumble of 'almost accurate' descriptions.
Whether 30,000' or 35,000', pretty deep.
Regarding temperature and hydrocarbon formation, for years the consensus seemed that any gas in the so-called Deep Utica (areas of PA and WV over 12/14,000' deep), would not be present as it would have cooked off.
This is increasingly being shown to be inaccurate as productive Utica wells are coming online in North Central, Central, and South west Pennsylvania and WV in depths approaching 14,000'.
This is adding significant amounts of prospective acreage for future development.
Hope things are going well for you, RM.
