I can't remember if I posted the video earlier.
Still Inactive; May Be Coming On-Line Again; An Old Madison Well
I last spoke about this well on December 19, 2015:
1361, 177/IA/A, Hess, Hawkeye-Madison Unit G-613 HR, Hawkeye oil field; t7/59; cum 608K 9/13; [612K 3/15] in 1956 this was drilled as a vertical well (the uppermost porosity of the South Hastings member of the Mississippian Mission Canyon formation). A lateral leg was drilled in December, 1999, in a southeast direction, same formation. A second lateral leg was drilled in 2000 in a northwest direction. The original vertical well produced 426,704 bbls through May, 1999. The well last produced any oil in January, 2013, and is shown as inactive. Cumulative oil as of 9/13 was 608,266 bbls. It is shown as a Madison well. No evidence of fracking, which of course makes sense; was IA; when I checked 5/14; it was A again.It looks like it might be active again; not production profile since a year ago:

A Note to the Granddaughters
This weekend's edition of the Wall Street Journal, Review Section, had a book review on The Brontë Cabinet, by Deborah Lutz, c. 2015, 310 pages.
When Virginia Woolf visited the homes of Thomas Carlyle and John Keats in the 1930s, the writers had been dead many years, their houses preserved as historic sites. Even so, Woolf felt a kinship with the literary greats who had once dwelled in the rooms where she stood. “We know them from their houses—it would seem to be a fact that writers stamp themselves upon their possessions more indelibly than other people,” she wrote in a magazine essay titled “Great Men’s Houses.” “Of artistic taste they may have none; but they seem always to possess a much rarer and more interesting gift—a faculty for housing themselves appropriately, for making the table, the chair, the curtain, the carpet into their own image.”
Woolf probably would have liked “The Brontë Cabinet,” Deborah Lutz’s consideration of the Brontë sisters—Charlotte, Emily and Anne—through nine items connected with the family of novelists. The objects of Ms. Lutz’s fascination are the tiny books the Brontës made as children, the family’s needlework, a walking stick, a brass dog collar, family letters, a portable desk, a bracelet containing Anne and Emily’s hair, an album of pressed ferns and a fragment of jewelry.I visited the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth, England, some years ago. The parsonage was something to check off on my bucket list but not particularly exciting or memorable. However, the entire visit to Haworth was quite incredible, memorable, and something I could do again.
