And the change has started at the Schwope Ranch

And here is the crane to take down the drilling rig

Yes it did Yesterday they came a pouring in with all the big moving equipment to start the Rig move. Yep they are taking it off ranch after drilling three wells. First went the living quarters for the workers along with all the support stuff for them.

Today they started moving the rig out and one would not think that they have so many different parts to a drilling rig.

Movers for the Crew Trailers

It was very foggy here this morning and due to the wide loads they could not move the first trucks until a bit after 9am. They went through the gate almost non-stop until 5:30pm and said that they would be back tomorrow to finish moving the larger units.

At this point in time we still do not know what is going to happen at this location after the rig is out. We have

The first of the crew trailers go out

heard rumors that they might be starting to frac the wells they  have already drilled here and some say not. I guess time will tell. Don’t know if that old saying works(Cross your fingers) or not but we will try it anyway. If not I guess we might be in the Que for a Gate



The first of the rig

So until next time.




Wow tight fit to get around the corner and out the gate

    Hi Luke! Are you still waiting for news? We think we’re moving over by Fowlerton no later than Sunday, but then again, we mushrooms just never know!
    Hang on to your hats tonight. Sound like we may be in for some rough weather!

      Yep Debbie we are still waiting we had 2 vehicles at the gate today and one of those was the Company Man said he was checking the level of the frac tank. I ask him if we were getting a frac crew and he stated it looked like it was over a month off yet. So I guess we continue on the Mushroom list.

    Howdy I am going for water tomorrow so I will try to find where you are and stop by for a short visit.

    Hey Luke! Are you still at the Schwope Ranch? Are you guarding anything yet? :D

    • Luke says:

      Yeah Debbie we are still here on the Schwope and they have a work-over rig in here now doing all three wells, Frac crew is due in on the 29th and hopefully the flow crew will follow them up. Maybe we can remain on this gate until we get ready to go back to Georgia on the 1st of May.
