  1. I see EOG has a rig up. To best of my knowledge they did not drill at all in 2017, just completed DUC wells.

  2. Good observation. I had not seen that but it wouldn't surprise me. I seem to recall that EOG said they were moving everything to the Permian -- and they had plenty of DUCs to complete. I'll have to go back and look at the numbers. Thank you.
