This the 5th day of June, 2015 /s/ Gertrude Lawrence Gertrude Lawrence R/1R R/gK 7D 7/Q/1 The Woodville Republican, Thursday, June 18, 2015 Page 9 Tuscolooso Mlar|ne Shole News by Bernell McGehee Tuscaloosa Marine Shale (TMS) Three Wells Being Fracked q-_ere are three wells in the process of being fracked and brought into production here in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale at this time, but there are no imminent drilling plans ofwhich I am aware. That said, the TMS hasn't left the radar. The Sanchez Bloomer 1H near Fort Adams should be wrapping up fracking opera- tions soon and flowing back shortly afterwards. Goodrich Petroleum is also performing a zipper frack on the B-Nez 43H-1 and 43H-2 wells in Tan- gipahoa Parish. I would expect these two wells to be flowing back by the end of June. Goodrich has four other wells scheduled to be fracked after the two B-Nez wells, but I haven't learned the pecking or- der on these fi-acks, yet. These four wells are the T. Lewis 7-38H-1 in Amite County, the Kinchen 58H-1 in Tangipahoa Parish and the Painter 5H-1 and W. Alford 10H-1 in Wash- ington Parish. Halcen also has five wells that have hot been fracked, but it is unknown when these wells will be completed. For the time being there are no rigs operating in the TMS. However, current plans are for Sanchez to drill 2-4 wells on the Macedonia site in late 2015 or early 2016. Likewise, rum- blings remain as to the possible return of Encana to the TMS. And, it wouldn't surprise me to see Goodrich return to drilling before the end of 2015. Obviously, the price of oil will be the biggest factor in whether plans are accelerated or put on hold. I have no doubt that $80+ oil ll be a motivator, but $70+ oil might be enough. Unfortunately, oil prices are less than $60 per barrel as of Friday, June 12. I continue to hear good news about prcluction num- bers on recently completed wells, espedally those brought in by Encana. Using barrels of oil numbers plnided by the ppi Oil and Gas Board, here follows a :nnv_mary for all wells completed by Encana since last July. Well Name, yddgh Month, Month Started, )tal Lewis 7-18H-1, 28,807, 7-14, $125,217; Lyons 35H-2, .34,743, 8-14, $131,711; Pintard 28H-2, 32,397, 9-14, $149,851; Sabine 12H-l, 29,701, 11- 14, $101,703; Sabine 12H-2, 27,525, 11- 14, $105,552; Ash 13H-1, 21,417, 1-15, $67203; Ash 13H-2, 21,417, 1-15, $8O,lOO; Mathis 29-17H-1, 34,715, 2-15, $81293; Longleaf 29H-1, 21,594, 3-15, $42,348; Longleaf 29H-2, 33,798, 3-15, $65,886; Lawson 25-13H-1, 37,986, 3-15, $48,311. All of the above wells are in Amite County, except the Pin- tard 28H-2, which is located in eastern Wilkinson Cunty. It would appear that Encana has demonstrated the ability to re- peatedly bring in high volume wells here in the TMS. It should come as no sur- prise that rumors are that when Encana returns it will be to first drill the areas be- tween the Lyons and Pintard wells and in the vidnil;y of the Mathis, Longieaf and Lawson wells.

"Today's Anticipations; Tomorrow's Realities"- WCHS 1978 Class M0tI0 It is certainly a reality that the Willdnson County High Class of 1978 had'an awesbme" celebration May 22 through May 25, 2015. The dass cel- &rated their 37th year dass reunion and it was magnifi- cent. On Friday, May 22, a Memorial Service was held at New Zion Hill Baptist Church honoring those deceased dass- mates. The deceased mem- bers' names were inscribed on a banner and a certificate was presented to the deceased members relatives. Reverend Tyser Brown gave an insph_g message. Festivities continued in the church fellowship hall, and the group ended the night with a gathering at the home of dassmates Mary and Fidal Anthony. The excitement continued on Saturday, May 23, with a picnic at the Woodvilh Park. The group enjoyed good food and good company from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. when every- one adjourned to get ready for the evening activities which were also held at the park. The ballroom was so elegantly decorated'by dassmate Ella Jo b4..n. ott and the aroma "oflhr. The evening activities in- chded prse..ntations to the classmatewho traveled the farthest, Ms. Cynthia Dal- court, who came from St. Jose, California; the classmate dth the youngest child, Michael Blackmore; the classmate with the oldest child, Tyser Brown; the classmate who worked the hardest, Cyntla Palmer, and the world's great- est host, Fidal Anthony. The classmates enjoyed music by DJ Too Big who entertained with music from the seventies and eighties. , The classmates were joined by several former administra- tors and advisors. The list in- cluded Mr. Thomas Tolliver, Ms. Elnora Veals, Mrs. Shirley Swain, Ms. Mildred McGhee and Mr. Charles Johnson. We, the reunion commit- tee, would llke thank everyone for their participation, and we look forward to seeing you the next time with the Class of 78 together again. ELITE ELEVEN: Biminate Littering/mprove 7he Environment "I am pleased to an- nounce the litter pick up is improving, thanks to the county's cleanup efforts," said Managing Director of Elite Eleven Bernice Fos- selman. "Cleanup is not an over- night task, it takes every- one to do their part to not litter," stated Fosselman. "According to the Depart- ment of Transportation, deliberate litter is a higher percentage of total litter in Mississippi than any other state." Fosselman started and completed a significant amount of cleanup on Nat- chez Street South inter- secting Hwy. 24 on April 22 and again on May 19, 2015 also. "A special thank you is sent to Alonso Dunbar and Mr. Fergnson for making it happen," said Fosselman. "Now, I hope people will get the message that Nat- chez Street is not a dump site," said Fosselman. "Al- so, thanks to the McDonald family for their contribu- tion." "I am periodically main- taining pick up on portions of the Pinckneyville Road," she continued. "It looked perfect a few weeks ago, but unfortunately it only lasted so long." "Please do not litter; dis- pose of trash when you stop at the nearest gas station, business facility or house trash can," said Fosselman. "Have a safe, joyful sum- mer!" she said in closing. LOVE YOUR COMMUNITY.* LOVE YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD! NOTICE TO NATURAL GAS CUSTOMERS OF THE TOWN OF CENTREVILLE Public Awareness Damage Prevention Notice The Town of Centreville owns and operates a natural gas distribution system in and around the Town of Centreville. The purpose of the gas system is to provide a reliable and safe, economical source of energy for heating purposes to the homes and businesses adjacent to the underground gas pipelines. The pipeline system has the capacity to reliably deliver natural gas to the customers. The hazards of natural gas are that it is odorless, colorless, tasteless, lighter than air and can ignite and]or explode with tremendous force when mixed with the right amount of air. Prevention measures taken include adding odorant to the gas to give it that distinctive smell, similar to rotten eggs, to warn us of its presence, testing the odorant level each calender month and performing annual gas leakage surveys. Anyone who may smell this odor in the Town of Centrevilh or notice any unusual conditions on or near gas mains, vents, . _.c:si.iif.s, or'especially inside of ' b'.,ra,uitding: thould,,V,Lhe Town of ..eO..i";;': immediitely. If you smell a strong gas odor inside a building, notify everyone in the building to leave. Do not operate any switches or use the phone. Go a safe distance away upwind of the gas smell and call the Town of Centrevilh. With any gas leak protect life first then property, then notify the Town of Centrelle. Pipeline markers are maintained along the pipeline right of way to inform the public of the underground gas line location. State and federal laws require excavators to notify the state One- Call Center 48 hours before digging. To obtain any information concerning the pipeline location call the Town of Centreville. If any excavation is planned you must notify the One-Call Center which will notify the Town of Centreville to locate any gas lines. Call 48 hours before digging.
