Note: a pump was placed on this well in 2007, so the changes in production below are not related to a pump.
First period in early 2008 shows the decline rate:
This next period is late 2010 going into early 2011. There is a sundry report received in late 2010 suggesting that EOG was going to "clean out" frack sand from the well.
Finally, the third period that caught my eye, late last year. I did not see any sundry reports that might account for the production increase.
By the way: note that some flaring occurred during this period. There are at least two reasons that flaring occurs even if the well is hooked up to a natural gas gathering and processing system: a) the natural gas gathering / processing plant is saturated; and/or, b) the natural gas processing plant is "down" for routine maintenance. It is my understanding that oil companies are allowed flaring under such conditions. The only way to completely eliminate flaring when the processing plant is saturated/undergoing maintenance, is to shut in the well. There is no guarantee that a shut-in well will return to its former glory; shutting down a well, even temporarily, I am led to understand, could damage the well significantly.
