JANUARY FEATURE Granite Wash
OVER VI EW : GR ANI TE W ASH
Peggy Williams, Hart Oil and Gas Investor The Granite Wash is one of a series of Midcontinent Wash plays that run northwest to southeast across the Panhandle of Texas and into Oklahoma, occupying a swath 160 miles long and 30 miles wide. The unusual reservoir consists of stacked, submarine fans made up of detritus shed from uplifts to the west and south. Individual lobes can cover several sections and reach some 70 feet thick. Deposition spanned several geologic ages, and the variety of source terrains translated into a potpourri of mineralogies in the resulting Wash sediments. Depths run from 300 feet to 19,000 feet, and the entire Wash package can be as thin as 10 feet to as thick as 4,000 feet. The complex series of sands, shales and siltstones are subdivided by various schemes that evolved within companies and within specific segments of the play. Designations include the Granite, Marmaton, Des Moines, Strawn, Cherokee, Red Fork, Cleveland and Atoka washes. Geologists have long had a broad familiarity with the Wash deposits, as thousands of wells drilled through the section on the way to deeper Morrow and Hunton targets. These latter zones yielded immense gas fields that dominated the Panhandle for decades. By the mid-1960s, certain portions of the Wash became targets in their own right, and today more than 4,200 wells have been completed in various Wash reservoirs. The Granite Wash defies categorization. Parts of the deposit qualify as conventional, sporting sand layers that have sufficient porosity and permeability to produce stout volumes of gas and liquids with little technological intervention. Much of the tremendous slab of sediment resides solidly in the unconventional realm, however, with poor reservoir characteristics but whopping volumes of gas-in-place. Likewise, pressure regimes vary from noticeably underpressured to gradients as high as 0.7 psi per foot. To further complicate matters, Upper Granite Wash zones are much oiler than lower zones. In the Texas Panhandle, liquid yields can vary from 60 to 70 barrels per million in the upper part of the sequence to eight to 10 barrels below. The entire package of agglomerated wedge-shaped Wash deposits carries hydrocarbons, but water production from some zones can be onerous. And, the Granite Wash play presents both areas with thick amalgamations of stacked zones and areas of single zones.

WASHES PLAY The Washes Play exists in the southwestern part of this province and extends into parts of the fold belt of the Southern Oklahoma Province. The play consists of eroded and recycled sedimentary and igneous debris (washes) weathered from the rocks uplifted during the Pennsylvanian and Early Permian tectonism (principally the Amarillo-Wichita Uplift) that created the present-day Anadarko Basin. These undifferentiated strata range in age from Pennsylvanian Morrowan through Permian Wolfcampian and generally drape over and interfinger with the strata of other Pennsylvanian and Permian plays adjacent to the Wichita Mountains front. Drilling depths to the top of these washes range from less than 100 ft to an estimated maximum of about 15,000 ft. We recognize that these rocks do not represent a single homogeneous package of so-called "granite" wash, but are eroded remnants and mixtures of many lithologies. However, their detrital nature, their proximity to the source, their genetic relationship to the tectonic development of the AmarilloWichita Uplift, and their similarities with respect to hydrocarbon source and trap type are their defining features, and are the characteristics that group these rocks into a single play. Reservoirs: Reservoir rocks are washes that range in age from Pennsylvanian to early Permian. Clast lithologies include limestones, cherts, dolomites, granites, and mixtures eroded from Mississippian, Devonian, Cambrian, and Ordovician sedimentary rocks, and Precambrian crystalline rocks. Compositionally, they lie in reverse stratigraphic order to that of the parent rocks, that is, Mississippian parent rocks sourced the oldest of the washes and Precambrian crystalline parent rocks are the sources of the youngest washes. These washes produce primarily gas but some oil as well. Production begins at depths as shallow as 300 ft but most major reservoirs produce between depths of 4,700 and 13,000 ft. Source rocks and timing: Because of the proximity of this play to virtually all source rocks in the basin, a variety of petroleum source rocks are expected. Because of the highly faulted nature of the area, thermally mature shales of the nearby deep Anadarko Basin are viable source rocks. Mature Pennsylvanian shales that interfinger with the washes along the northern play boundary are also likely

Of its initial tranche. For the next few years it expects to keep between three and five rigs busy in the Wash. it was drilling deep into the section and completing more intervals. “The difficult part is to bore in on how productive each zone is.OI L ANG GAS I N VESTOR AR TI CLES Granite Wash Oil and gas are far from ex hausted in the Tex as P anhandle. and posted spectacular results. We’re targeting intervals that can deliver high production rates. From initial well costs of around $10 million each. Newfield engineers have dropped costs to less than $8 million.5 million cubic feet of gas a day. The new energy economy has established a firm foothold in North America’s prime wind-resource corridor. deeper part of the trend—the reservoir occurs below 12. “There were mechanical problems in the laterals.” Newfield also joined in several nonoperated wells located between Buffalo Wallow and Stiles Ranch. at best. The company recently added a third rig to the two already engaged.” he says. “Depending on how many intervals ultimately test out. By late 2008. it kicked off a vertical drilling program in the Stiles Ranch area in Wheeler County. It cements in liners and completes the laterals in seven to eight slickwater frac stages. it was ready to test horizontal drilling in its prime Stiles Ranch asset. Newfield thinks its first batch will range from 6 to 10 Bcfe each. our production rates have been high and fairly consistent. In short order. It’s a challenging venture. 2009 Like monumental pinwheels.” says Dunn. slickwater fracture treatments and close attention to costs. While it’s quite early to toss about EURs for horizontal Granite Wash wells. it drilled a Granite Wash lateral in Buffalo Wallow. was completed for 21 million cubic feet of gas and 570 barrels of condensate per day at a cost of $7.” says Dunn.1 million equivalent a day for its first 60 days on production.” Interval quality appears to be directly related to thickness. This is in the slightly overpressured. the company was intrigued with the impressive gas-in-place potential of the Granite Wash.5. By Peggy Williams. when it obtained a property in the play in concert with its acquisition of EEX Corp. Humongous horizontals A leader in present-day Granite Wash drilling is Newfield Exploration Co. It was just the beginning. a shallower and less-pressured field northwest of Stiles Ranch. “We are looking at different intervals to get a feel for productivity across our entire acreage spread.to 90 million cubic feet net per day.” At present.

The verticals typically recovered 2.to 3. Newfield drilled more than 150 vertical wells and increased production in the Stiles Ranch area from 2. October 1. In 2003. the operator drills its Stiles Ranch wells to true vertical depths (TVDs) between 12. and plans to be at four by year-end. The company reinitiated detailed geologic mapping.200 and 14. where the Wash sediments reach 3. Newfield has been working the Granite Wash since 2002. Newfield has drilled seven horizontal wells into three different intervals. The Houston-based explorer lit up the industry with its recent announcement of a series of prodigious horizontal completions in the Granite Wash in Wheeler County. Gradually. the old energy economy quietly hums along.5 billion cubic feet equivalent (Bcfe) apiece and were completed in seven to eight zones. The #27-7H McCoy was a runaway success: it came on production in December 2008 at an initial rate of 25 million cubic feet of gas and 1.5 psi per foot. and one reservoir that is in the midst of a reconstruction is the Pennsylvanian Granite Wash. “Currently. The high flow rates are combining with sinking well costs to improve metrics. superior reservoir properties and presence of natural fractures.200 feet. and one reservoir that is in the m idst of a reconstruction is the P ennsylvanian Granite W ash. beneath the undulant rangelands. “Our results were moderate. given the softness in natural gas prices and the vagaries of Midcontinent differentials. there’s room to go above that figure. and determined to find a way to up its recovery factor. and the smallest well made 8 million cubic feet and 180 barrels of condensate per day. Newfield initially confined its efforts to the top 500 to 1. selecting a horizontal target is not simple. Up to mid-2008. Given the tremendously thick section of stacked intervals that occurs in the Granite Wash at Stiles Ranch. Following the common practices of the time. five wells were gauged at more than 20 million cubic feet per day.” he says. “Right now. Nonetheless. Newfield added more acreage. Oil and gas are far from exhausted in the Panhandle.” says George Dunn.5. The asset was minor.900 barrels of condensate per day. the Granite Wash is our third-largest asset and we’re hoping to grow that significantly as we prove up more of the interval.4 million. Operators are applying both horizontal and vertical wells to produce reserves from this longtime target. within our footprint we see potential of 400 to 600 Bcf.” he says. and produced more than 4 Bcfe in the first nine months.000 feet in thickness.” Newfield’s results have been so appealing that it has shifted its 2009 program entirely to horizontal wells. “We’re in the early stages of assessing the ultimate potential. consisting of some 30 Granite Wash wells making about 2. The company recognizes up to 15 primary intervals across its 35. In 2005. and dug deep into the data. It averaged 27.000 feet of the sequence. “A number of intervals are economic to develop at today’s forward strip prices. “The well produced a lot of water. the #33-7H Williams. Economic rates are achieved by multistage.

Forest is keeping a company-owned rig busy. “The corner wells gave us data on the thickness of zones. and some acreage in Oklahoma operated by others. the company exclusively drills horizontals in the play.000 feet and measured depths of approximately 17. The operator was drilling horizontal Cotton Valley wells in East Texas. it switched to drilling vertical wells in the corners and leaving interiors available for laterals. the company will drill six net wells in its venture with Chesapeake. As in other parts of the Patch.” he says. the two companies have partnered in an area of mutual interest (AMI) to develop the Granite Wash via horizontal wells. and drilling conditions are not difficult. was fractured in eight stages in a 3.600-foot lateral. Four to five stages are treated with slickwater jobs. “That was our transition to horizontal wells. We ran our economics on the medium case.” says Baird Whitehead.” he says. At $3 Nymex gas and $55 crude. and the frac is concentrated.” That makes the economics very strong. In 2009. we were doing bolt-on leasing and taking farmouts in the Panhandle. and after we drilled a few verticals we concluded the play was marginal. and it was a chance for us to get a good position in the Texas Panhandle.” This year. executive vice president and chief operating officer.” And.” he says. in Wheeler County.” says Ridens. executive vice president and chief operating officer.” says Whitehead. “We don’t need as many stages as in a shale reservoir. The reservoir is overpressured. and the after-tax rate of return is close to 70%.” Earlier this year. The Granite Wash B is the target. “A third of that came in the form of associated liquids.500 to 12.” Horizontal Granite Wash drilling also extends into Oklahoma. staffed with company employees. Forest is looking hard into more technical advances. On the initial 23 wells.” says Whitehead. The opportunity to stack laterals off the same pad or even stack laterals out of a single wellbore could reduce costs further.5 Bcfe. the Washita County wells ran $7. The partners set 7-inch casing on top of the Granite Wash and cement liners in the lateral.7 million each.6 and 0. dry-gas zones for the future. Occasionally.” says J. “Some of the better wells make more than 1.” says Whitehead. and we did production logging. “We contact good-quality reservoir rock very effectively and limit contact with rock we want to avoid. and the well is performing on the high side.” Now. via a 2006 acquisition. “We got our feet wet and realized the results of the horizontal wells were much better. UNG Report January 2010 Sooner side 19 Copyright 2010 Hart Energy Publishing .” Forest also participated in eight nonoperated horizontal wells that posted average initial rates of 8 million equivalent per day. Forest produced 91 million net a day from the Buffalo Wallow area.200 Btu. so mud weights push 12 pounds per gallon in the lateral. “We’re in the budget-preparation cycle. The TVDs for the Washita County wells are 11. It currently holds 120. the partners have one Chesapeakeoperated rig at work on the AMI acreage.” In Washita County. The #5-7H Zybach. It also gathered data to support a horizontal program. The firm bought into the Granite Wash in Washita County. the Granite Wash generally presents just one interval for drilling.2 Bcfe. Ridens. and the two plays shared similarities. laterals generally stretch 3. From that point on. because the Wash has some porosity and permeability. In the first quarter of 2009. and the gas is 1. the combination of falling service costs and increased efficiencies has slashed costs almost 20%: last year.” Forest’s initial efforts post-acquisition were directed at improving techniques for vertical wells. Forest’s first operated horizontal well tested 17 million equivalent per day. “It’s relatively uncomplicated drilling. “We were attracted to the play because the Granite Wash had a known producing history. “The liquids component really makes this work for us. “This play is one of the top economic performers in the company. And the reservoir is loaded with liquids: 40% of the production is crude oil. “This is an area where we can run multiple rigs for multiple years and hammer the efficiencies. the C zone can be developed as well. Oklahoma.” says Ridens.5 million. The Denver-based independent entered the play in 2005.25 million at present. The Granite Wash now accounts for a majority of its Midcontinent production. In new sections. it is saving the deeper. Penn Virginia operates approximately a third of the AMI and Chesapeake operates the remainder.000 feet. “The seller had drilled a handful of vertical wells. It is forecasting drilling and completion costs of $5.000 barrels of oil per day at the wellhead. Finding costs are $1.500 to 4. “That helps keep our costs down. “The NGLs sell at 40% to 50% of Nymex crude. The company used frac mapping and extensive production-logging techniques to hone its stimulations. but given the results we’ve seen to date we may step up activity in 2010 compared to 2009. Penn Virginia holds about a 40% interest across the project. “It’s pretty difficult to find such economic opportunities in today’s market. which has room for more than 90 additional horizontal wells. However.000 feet. The company anticipated horizontal development in the Wash. and its net production from the play is 25 million equivalent per day. Forest can still make an attractive rate of return in the Granite Wash.43 per thousand cubic feet. between 0. Its targets are the liquids-rich zones in the upper Granite Wash. Last year. Penn Virginia has participated in 23 gross wells.65 psi per foot. Chesapeake Energy was working its Colony West project to the west of Penn Virginia’s holdings. “These wells will make at least 90 barrels per million.” says Ridens. Pennsylvania-based Penn Virginia Corp. Currently. acquiring acreage on internally generated prospects. The Oklahoma City operator bought into some of the same acreage held by Penn Virginia. 6. and that juices the economics.C. Chesapeake proposed several horizontal wells.An operator in the thick of the Granite Wash is Forest Oil Corp. some 70 miles from the activity in the Panhandle’s Stiles Ranch area. it purchased Cordillera Energy Partners II. condensates and NGLs.

” MLP attraction As an upstream MLP. This year.” he says. Under present SEC rules. “But we fully understand why other operators take the horizontal approach. By comparison. we are getting 27% rate of return and our finding cost is $1. and we want to preserve this potential for a higher UNG Report January 2010 20 Copyright 2010 Hart Energy Publishing . but a horizontal well proves up just two parallel offsets. using the strip price deck. and results have been very repeatable in areas of the trend. its vertical Wash wells are completed in up to eight intervals and recover 1. Cordillera entities had drilled 84 vertical and four horizontal wells in the play. “The lower well costs are key to what has allowed us to continue to drill and complete the vertical Granite Wash wells. Cordillera’s Hemphill County wells average 1.500 feet thick. Houston-based Linn Energy LLC has a different business model than the straight E&P companies. its daily net Granite Wash production is approximately 50 million equivalent.6 million apiece.

Hemphill and Mendota fields in Hemphill County.” This year. the Granite Wash is some 1.” he says. “We think verticals are the most efficient way to develop our particular area of the Granite Wash. Cordillera estimates the resource potential to be on the order of 42 to 49 Bcfe of recoverable gas per section. senior geologist. The high rates of return from the high-rate horizontal completions are quite attractive for different reasons. primarily on 20-acre spacing. and the use of better rigs and better bit programs. almost a quarter of its total volume. we will spend as much money as we can in the Granite Wash. “Right now.to 3 million a day. “Vertical drilling is a very efficient way to prove up reserves.” says Ellis. The fit was good for Linn.” says Tazi. Linn drilled almost 100 Granite Wash wells and had five operated and five nonoperated rigs running across the play. Here. “We found that velocity strings allow us to evacuate water from the wellbore and improve gas production. “The horizontal wells produce a significant portion of their reserves in their first 18 months.45 per Mcfe.” says Tazi. and that’s what Linn was after when it entered the Granite Wash in mid-2007. and the company counts some 710 Bcfe of PUDs and nonproven inventory. “Our biggest challenge is to find the best way to extract the most value possible from this play for our unit holders. “We invest in stable. in mid-2008.3 Bcfe at an initial rate of 2. and the results other operators are reporting have certainly raised the value of that inventory. It ran two rigs in the Wash during the first half of the year and has now scaled back to one.“The Granite Wash is one of our three core plays. Cordillera will continue its vertical development program in Hemphill County and use horizontals where appropriate on its other leasehold positions. we have improved our average initial rate by 100% and our EURs by more than 20%. The company’s staff has rich experience in the Wash: through the end of 2008. and that translates into better EURs. “We are in drilland-suspend mode.000 net acres in the trend as part of a $2. at a cost of about $0. Linn’s Granite Wash properties hold 900 vertical locations. very fine-grained and underpressured.” The strong economics are the result of better and cheaper wells.” Vertical player The Granite Wash has been a friendly locale for three cycles of privately-held. It is a sizeable position in a very good neighborhood. The company has an inventory of more than 950 Granite Wash locations. It constantly evaluates the metrics of the play.5 million a day and are solidly economic. Currently.” Prime targets are plays that deliver predictable cash-flow streams. its position includes about 13. mature assets and we use commodity hedging to reduce price volatility. A contributing factor is the company’s use of velocity strings. and will add in horizontals if those completions can meet its internal geologic and economic criteria. “In the program we started last year.
