[snip] . . . . “The Company is also pleased to report that drilling operations are continuing at its first exploration well at the Allen Dome oil field in Texas, Reese #10.
After overcoming initial mechanical issues, Reese #10 is now at a depth of 1,800 feet. Providing that drilling activity is not further interrupted, the well is on schedule to reach its pre-drill planned Total Depth of 5,200 feet within the next few days. It will then be logged and evaluated for a possible completion attempt.
The well is targeting five potential zones, each of which has been assessed to have the potential of producing 50 barrels of oil per day (bopd), or more.”

Allen Dome background

The Allen Dome salt dome is located approximately 80 km south of Houston, Texas in
Brazoria County.
Oil production from the dome flanks began in the 1920’s with cumulative oil production over 800,000 barrels to date from less than 20 wells. Less than 50 wells have been drilled on the dome flanks, all of which were located utilising subsurface well information.
Titan Energy is confident that modern exploration and drilling technology will lead to a significant increase from the moderate current production levels.

AND –

Their press release –  Titan Energy raises A$3.16M, continues Texas oil and gas drilling

Drill, Baby, Drill . . .  on a Salt Dome??? Haven’t they learned their lesson??  And, why, oh, why is the US getting all these foreign companies (like BP, Titan etc.)  into Wyoming, the Gulf of Mexico, Texas in the first place?? Big give away!

  1. foreign oil companies have most often strategic alliances with american companies. All companies are well aware of the environmental dangers of hydraulic fracking and deep horizon drilling. It’s all about legal liabilty. In this way when something goes wrong they are directly responsable i guess.

  2. on the bis(2 ethylhexyl) phthalate. Most pipes for gas are made out of PVC they add phthalate to ensure it will not become brittle over time. Phthalate disolves really well in oil and gas.
