Range Production's Aquilla 1H Unit

The Aquilla 1H is now online. Looking forward to seeing production numbers for this south central Hill county unit, located just south of Peoria, TX.

Aspect's Hokit 1H Unit - On Hold

The rig has been gone almost two months, and activity has ceased - at least for the moment. A word from the mineral owner was that Aspect needed a more powerful rig to drill to depths necessary to engage the Barnett. The drill casing is all that remains at the pad, located just west of Abbott, TX .

King Kong - Alive and Well....

Ran across the object of Fay Wray's love interest while searching for Aspect's Janda lease site in southern Hill county.

Aspect DL Gerik 1V - EOG's TAM Lease

Aspect Abundant Shale's DL Gerik 1V unit is just a stone's throw from EOG's unperfed TAM unit. I suppose a few strips of white cloth were enough to mark the gate for this unit. One way to cut costs.

Barnett Activity Changes the Landscape

New pipelines and gas wells aren't the only effects of gas exploration. Cleared land, new stock fences, new home additions and construction have increased exponentially as a result of putting some of those Barnett bonuses to work.

Johnson County Barnett

The Burleson, TX area is more than home to Kelly Clarkson of American Idol fame. Say hello to hundreds of gas wells.













Backroad Sights in Johnson County

The Brass Ring in Johnson county offers a full line of horse services. Breeding, training, conditioning.
Lots of truck traffic north and west of Burleson. A tight squeeze on a narrow county road.
Working hard to shove that coal down the line.

Another form of energy rumbles through the county.

Stringing a Pipeline Infrastructure

A lateral from Range's Aquilla unit continues to be strung across FR 1947 towards PVR's gathering lines in central Hill county.

With a road bore completed the same lateral line will continue eastward from Peoria, TX.

A working windmill, having provided clean energy for many years, continues to turn faithfully at Hwy 22 and Farm Rd. 1947 in Peoria.
