Slawson is doing some very interesting things: I have found three occasions on which Slawson has drilled one well just 105 feet or so from another well, in the same section. There are probably many more examples, but I found these three in a matter of minutes. Even EOG doesn't seem to be doing that. EOG puts a well in each section; BEXP is pioneering 24- and 28-stage fractures; most of WLL's wells are 1280-acre spacing; and now, it looks like Slawson is putting two wells right next to each other. Very interesting. I noted this when looking at the "active rigs" and saw Slawson ready to move the rig on Skybolt to Howitzer. December, 2010 (Update: obviously things have changed: EOG now putting three wells in a section. Other producers putting multiple wells on one site/pad -- March 29, 2010)

March 30, 2010: Slawson Snake Eyes. Slawson has been granted two permits for another pair of snake eyes, this time in Van Hook oil field: #18870, Moray Federal 1-10H and #18871, Neptune 1-15H, both in NENW 15-151N-92W. In addition, Slawson was granted another permit the same day (today) for another well in the Van Hook field, #18872, Mustang 1-22H, SWSE 22-151N-92W.
March 29, 2010: Slawson Snake Eyes. Slawson has been granted a permit for another well on same pad as earlier well in the Big Bend oil field, continuing a trend I first noted back in December, 2009. I called them "EcoPads Lite," but I think I will start calling them "Slawson Snake Eyes." The new permit, #18854, Silencer 1-29H, joins #18574, Mole 1-20H, on section 20-151-92. One lateral will go north, and one lateral will go south, no doubt.
