  • Oasis Petroleum: Success Of High-Intensity Completions Drives Cash Flow Neutrality At Lower Oil Prices [View article]
    Z,

    From my exposure to rock mechanics in the 70's, received as an EIT (engineer in training) from a Frac pumping company. I am no longer a registered professional engineer. Once the failure pressure of the formation (disposal formation) is exceeded a fracture can be propagated (grown/extended) for as long as the propagation pressure is maintained (by the disposal pumps). Propagation extends laterally, as well as up and down, until boundaries are encountered (different rocks encountered).

    The questions in my mind:
    Where all is the disposal fluid actually going?
    Does a fault penetrate through the disposal formation?
    What is occurring at the fault line where the the fault is non-sealing or partially non-sealing?
    Is there adequate lubrication within the plane of the fault allowing/enhancing slippage (possible tectonic event referred to as an earthquake)?
    Is a non-sealing fault allowing disposal fluid to enter a formation or formations other than the permitted disposal formation?

    Sorry for getting off the topic in your great article.

  • Extent of California oil spill still being assessed, pipeline was at capacity [View news story]
    I am disturbed after watching PAA's various television responses. It appears PAA was ill prepared on Public Responses to Spills.

    I hope all domestic pipeliners are learning from this PAA lesson?

    Where will PAA's stock price bottom?
    What financial impairment will California and the EPA represent?

  • Kinder Morgan can't take land for Palmetto Pipeline, Georgia says [View news story]
    Never miss an opportunity to make money dog piling on the unfortunate California Spill News from PAA. I expect the Shorts will be piling on all the domestic pipelines to capitalize on the fresh wave of negative news. Conversely, a buying opportunity should be presented.

    Time to learn from the expert, Exxon. Still electing to litigate their Valdez spill so many years afterwards. But, not every pipeliner has the financial resources of Exxon.

    I sure hope Mr. Kinder is assuring KMI is viewed as a kinder, gentler pipeliner. I'm not seeing it on Television, watching PAA exec's squirming. Very poor preparation for the Press's scrutiny!

    Jarko,

    Wrong on all accounts. I'm bent on making money and enjoying watching money make money in my retirement. I have had a mostly wonderful life as an Independent Texas Producer, now retired.

    Stock price increasing on the Spill news? Maybe insurance coverage will make a difference?

    Bryce,

    Breaking news having some influence on your warning:
    PAA will have the election to eliminate their Distribution for a different reason. The California Beach oil spill points to the fragility of those approaching insolvency.
