Cornerstone 3H Gas Lift 12/28/08

Guages and meters are wrapped tightly in a winter coat made of insulation and duct tape.

Cornerstone 1H and 2H Units

Unlike the Cornerstone 3H, the 1H and 2H units are not accessible for production readings.
Even with the gates locked tight, both units appear to be producing. A shared compressor pushes gas to a main gathering line about 1/2 mile east of this location.

Nice Weather for a Playday

Lots of folks with trailer loads of horses enjoy a beautiful afternoon on FM 310, near the west end of Lake Aquilla. Hey, I know this place!

I should have stopped for a closer look but was pressed for time, as usual.

Forest's Cornerstone 3H 12/14/08

Total gas production at the 3H unit closes in on 200 million cubic feet. The 3H seems to be the most consistant producer of the 3 Cornerstone units.

Gas production numbers have remained steady for many months making the 3H the best producing unit to date in far southern Hill county.

Not sure which Norris horizontal unit this is, but 7 wells is a lucky number on any property.
