HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 03/14/14 -- Magnum Hunter Resources Corporation (NYSE: MHR) (NYSE MKT: MHR.PRC) (NYSE MKT: MHR.PRD) (NYSE MKT: MHR.PRE) ("Magnum Hunter" or the "Company") announced today certain updates on its drilling and completion activities in the Marcellus and Utica Shale Plays.
Marcellus and Utica Drilling Update
Over the next 30 days, the Company anticipates production flowing to sales from 8 gross (7 net) wells in the Marcellus and Utica Shale Plays via the Company's majority owned Eureka Hunter Pipeline System. Of these wells, the Company anticipates the three WVDNR Pad wells located in Wetzel County, West Virginia, in which the Company owns a 100% working interest, will begin flowing to production sales over the next 17-20 days. The Stalder Pad wells, the Stalder #2MH and Stalder #3UH, will be turned into production over the next 10-12 days following the finalization of fracture stimulation of the Stalder Marcellus well which is nearing completion. In addition, the pipeline segment at the Ormet Pad is in the final stages of installation, and the Company anticipates the three wells on this pad to flow to production over the next 45 days. Following the completion of the WVDNR Pad wells, Stone Energy (under its joint venture with the Company) will then commence the completion of 4 gross (2 net to the Company) wells, already drilled and cased, located in Wetzel County, West Virginia, over the next couple of weeks with production flowing to sales anticipated in the next 60 days. The Company anticipates incremental production from the WVDNR, Stalder and Ormet Pad locations will be in the range of 6,000 - 8,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day net to the Company.
On the WVDNR Pad located in Wetzel County, West Virginia, the Company has drilled and completed the fracture stimulation of the three 100% owned Marcellus Shale wells, the WVDNR #1207, #1208 and #1209. The wells were drilled and cased to an average vertical depth of 7,500 feet with a 4,000 foot average horizontal lateral. The Company is currently cleaning up the location and anticipates production from the wells to begin flowing to sales over the next 17-20 days.
As previously reported, the Company drilled and completed three ~100% owned wells located on the Ormet Pad in Monroe County, Ohio. The wells were drilled and cased to an average vertical depth of 5,900 feet with a 3,900 foot average horizontal lateral. The Ormet wells tested at a combined rate of 11,669 Mcf of natural gas and 1,788 Bbl of condensate per day or 3,733 barrels of oil equivalent per day. Eureka Hunter is finalizing the connection of its pipeline segment from the Ormet Pad to its mainline, and the Company anticipates production from these wells to flow to sales over the next 45 days.
The Company's first Marcellus Shale well drilled on the Stalder Pad, the Stalder #2MH, has been drilled and cased, and the Company is currently fracture stimulating the remaining four stages of the well, which the Company expects to complete in the next couple of days. The Stalder #2MH was drilled and cased to a true vertical depth of 6,070 feet with a 5,474 foot horizontal lateral. The Company's first dry gas Utica Shale well, the Stalder #3UH, also located on the Stalder Pad in Monroe County, Ohio, is currently shut-in due to the fracture stimulation of the Stalder #2MH (the Marcellus well). Production from both Stalder wells will begin flowing to sales into the Eureka Hunter Pipeline over the next 10-12 days.
On the Farley Pad (100% owned wells) located in Washington County, Ohio, the Company has drilled and cased the Farley #1306H well in the Utica Shale to a true vertical depth of 7,850 feet with a 6,313 foot horizontal lateral. The Company has also completed the drilling of another Utica Shale well on the Farley Pad, the Farley #1304H, and is currently at total measured depth of 14,250 feet and expects to begin run casing in the next 3-5 days. The Farley #1304H was drilled to a true vertical depth of 7,914 feet with a 5,400 foot horizontal lateral. Following the drilling of the Farley #1304H, the Company will begin fracture stimulation of these two new Farley Utica wells later this month and expects to report initial production test rates in early-summer 2014 following an approximate 30-day resting period. The Company is in the advanced stages of completing a new take-away capacity agreement with a third-party midstream company and expects to be ready to flow production of all three wells on the Farley Pad to sales via a temporary sales line in August 2014.
On the Stewart Winland Pad located in Tyler County, West Virginia, the Company has drilled and cased two Marcellus Shale wells, the Stewart Winland #1301 and #1302. The wells were drilled and cased to an average true vertical depth of 6,155 feet with a 5,750 foot average horizontal lateral. The Company is currently drilling the lateral portion of the third Marcellus Shale well, the Stewart Winland #1303, to a true vertical depth of 6,155 feet with a 5,800 foot horizontal lateral. Following the completion of this third Marcellus well, the Company will walk the robotic drilling rig over to the next location and drill the first horizontal Utica Shale well ever drilled in the State of West Virginia. The Company expects to report initial production test rates from these four new 100% owned wells on the Stewart Winland Pad during mid-summer 2014.
Production results from the group of wells described above are anticipated to almost double the Company's current overall daily production volumes.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
