Cline Shale Horizontal Drilling Permits: Concentrated Activity in Martin and Midland Counties ($PXD)

0x600The Texas Railroad Commission reports that 25 applications to drill horizontal wells at depths greater than 10,000 feet (where the Cline/Wolfcamp D lies) have been filed for the greater Cline Shale area since Christmas.  Most applications were filed for Martin and Midland counties and of these eight were filed by Pioneer Natural Resources ($PXD) alone, which is not surprising in light of its recent successes.  In November, we started tracking Martin and Midland based on Pioneer’s positive results in the area.  Its continued interest here to the west of the well-established hotspots in Glasscock and Howard counties only underlines the potential expanse of this play.  An increase in horizontal activity is indicative of the shift into commercial production away from exploratory vertical activity most prominent in the early days of a shale play.

  1. Supercb.com is a website where you can shopping any accessories of cb radio.SuperCB choices,There are three main types of CB radio setups. These are a Citizens Band Base Station, mobile in-vehicle units and handheld citizens radios. Handheld units can be very useful, but usually have more limited range than in-vehicle or base station radios, this is partly because they are lower power, and partly because they have much shorter antennae.
