Drilling Permits and Online Filings Advanced
Valerie Atkins-Team Leader
This class is giving you step by step instructions on how to file an Online W-1 Application from A-Z.
What you need to know about the online permitting system:
Where can I find the docket order for the special horizontal field rules?
When filing your plat, make sure you are showing:
Certification of a Plat
A certified plat is needed in two instances:
When making changes to a certified plat, you can not make any changes to the plat if it is certification by the surveyor. If you do make changes, you must erase the certification by the surveyor and certify the plat yourself. This is what is accepted as word certification:
I certify that everything is true and correct to the best of my knowledge.
Please sign and date the word certification
At this point, if you are applying for a field that has special horizontal take point rules, you need to carefully examine your plat and know the field rules governing development in the field you’re attempting to permit in.
Field List Screen
Basic Details Box
When filing out the Basic Details Box, it will be filled out based on whatever your wellbore profile will be…(ie, Vertical, Horizontal and Directional)
Horizontal Well-you will show the surface lease line location for your perpendicular calls but for nearest lease line and well, there are 3 areas of a regular SWR 86 well and the same for a special horizontal well.
For the SWR 86 horizontal well-it is the penetration point, wellbore path and the terminus location
For Special Horizontal wells-it is the 1st take point/upper perforation, wellbore path and last take point/lower perforation
When filing a P-12, please make sure that you are filling out the P-12 correctly. The instructions are shown at the bottom of the page.
When filling out the P-12, if either one of the tracts show to have a unleased or non-pooled tract box checked, you will have to determine if that tract is to close to a to the well because we have to look at that tract as a HARD lease line and any well that is to close to it is subject to SWR 37 lease line exception.
Make sure the P-12 is signed and dated
We must be able to clearly see the tracts shown on the P-12 on the plat as if they are mirror images of each other.
Important things to know when filing attachments:
Filings paid with a Check
When filing a check, you will get the prompts that have file information pertaining to a checking acct…ie, Routing Number, Account Number, Bank Name, Name on Account and Driver’s License number.
Where it says “Driver’s License number”, you may use your Company’s Federal ID number.
Please make sure that you put in any all numbers correctly because if not, this can in turn cause your permit to not be accepted.
If you are “kicked or timed out AFTER you have put in your payment information but your filing still shows to be in your work in progress queue, please call us because the payment may have been taken but the filing was not moved into the RRC queue to start approval. Please call 512-463-6751 or email/call Lorenzo or Valerie. Please make sure you have the tracking number.
