Large gas wells reported by Trinity Operating


Houston’s Trinity Operating USG LLC has a history of drilling in Oklahoma’s Arkoma basin in the southeast and reported this week completions of two wells on a single pad producing more than 18,000 Mcf of natural gas.

The two Glynell wells, drilled at 31 8N 12E which is a site near the Canadian River and southeast of Wetumka in Hughes County had December 2018 spud dates. But drilling wasn’t finished until July 2019 and completions on each were made in October 2019.

One well, drilled at a depth of 15,934 feet in the Woodford formation produced 8,334 Mcf of natural gas according to its completion report. A second well was drilled at a depth of 15,454 feet into the Mayes-Woodford formation and produced 9,883 Mcf of natural gas according to its completion report.

Trinity’s website said it has a long history of successful drilling in the Woodford and Miss Lime basins and is poised for further expansion. The company has had extensive drilling operations in Hughes and Pittsburg counties in Oklahoma.

Casillas Operating LLC added to its wells in McClain County, filing a report showing a second well was drilled at 6 5N 4W northwest of Lindsay where the company had filed an earlier report on a well.

Combined production from the two Kilkenny 1-6mh wells is 1,288 barrels of oil a day. The second well report, filed on Wednesday showed production of 640 barrels of oil a day and 954 Mcf of natural gas from a depth of 16,947 feet in the Mississippian formation. It had a July 2019 spud date and completion in September 2019.

The first well’s report, filed earlier in the week had production of 648 barrels of oil a day and 1,067 Mcf of natural gas.

Only one permit to drill was issued on Wednesday by state regulators. It went to Pruitt Operating Company LLC based in Duncan, a firm with a lengthy history of drilling in Stephens county and others in southern Oklahoma. The firm intends to drill a well at a site west of Velma.
