Post foil Very pleased you enjoyed your trip and worthy of many more as there is a huge number of places to visit.
Post foil Hi Ash Just back from Northumberland, Greenhaugh (or Greenoff as I now know to pronounce it). Blown away by the beauty of the Kielder area. Don’t think I’ve seen so much wildlife in Britain - dragonflies, lapwings, swallows, no end of bird watching up there, not to mention weasels, hares, squirrels and deer. Escaped with only 3 very small midge bites, exceptionally lucky given the bites some of the locals got this weekend! Great cycling country if somewhat crazy driving on one track roads. Going to give things a break on here for a while as have found the last few months fairly stressful with the constant ups and downs and feel the best thing to do is stop reading at this point and return when the data gets published. Wishing you, Floss, Lawven, Millais, Johnnie-FP, Wessexmario, Bobsson and all those who have made this board a friendly and interesting place of exchange a good summer and see you around October / November. Fingers crossed for the next two drills. Left Newcastle this morning with a walk down by the quayside
Post foil Ricfle: I doubt you are man enough to reply. Ricfle - get a life. If you’ve got nothing pleasant to say, then don’t say at all. You may find life improves for you.
CMD Presentation Your behaviour is embarrassing. Let go.
Post foil Fynne There is a good post on LSE by “hoofhearted2” who has been spot on in the past. He is predicting a 500k off load in just over a week. Looks like production could be above guidance.
CMD Presentation I actually did mean some in this case, my thinking was; if you have a pot of oil and add some water then gently upset the mix, then if you suck out some of the liquid from two separate points I would wager you have a variable level of oil/water. One of the wells has zero water, the other has 5% to 10% - if the water was from the aquifer I would have thought the ‘zero water’ well would have some water in there. That said, I’m not an expert in any field, I know my place.
CMD Presentation johnnie-fp: then both (not just one) wells would have some level of water I think you intended to say `same’ rather than Flome
CMD Presentation I understand the perched water theory though and indeed if it were water from the aquifer then both (not just one) wells would have some level of water - especially seeing as how connected they are.
CMD Presentation I must admit, I thought the same. Some say that the answer is in the CPR and defend Dr T but to be frank I’d be quite peeved if I were given this answer by him. Other than that the information contained in the CMD was superb.
CMD Presentation This is what I have just posted on LSE. I’ve finally got to the end of the CMD presentation. The information given was, obviously, fantastic. The presenters themselves were awful, like amateurs who hadn’t run through it before the day itself. So much shambolic umms and errs and hesitations. As for the Q&A I was embarrassed. “Can you explain about the perched water” RT, “Read the CPR” “Can you explain it now” “No”. That is just downright rude.
Post foil I would have thought that any mechanism to cause fractures to silt up would necessarily involve flow of some type of fluid through the fractures to transport and deposit the sediment. Whilst you might get some smallish particles resulting from the original fracturing, it is counterintuitive to suggest that fractures would silt up (or block up, as the sediment might not be silt-sized) without some external mechanism to get the particles into position. I’m speaking here as a civil engineer with limited knowledge of oil-related geological processes.
Post foil ash6666: As someone who had an allotment for many years I can confirm that larger stones do, indeed, rise to the surface. That may well be true in a garden but unless the soil consists of fractured granite the observation is irrelevant. I missed the original claim which I presume was that large fissures could be blocked by an accumulation of fine material. I would hazard a guess that you only get fine soil-like material from the long term actions of water, or ice i.e. weathering. Tectonics produces some shattering but hardly even down to road grit size in granite. In general, the greater amount of shattering, the higher the PorFlosity

Post foil Wessexmario I have read with interest your theory why the fractures at Warwick deep would not flow (19:51 13 July on the LSE board). I would question why a simple tension crack would produces a well graded material that could, over time, block the fractures. I also got a bit lost when you mentioned stones migrating upwards threw the soil of your garden, all seemed a bit “Percy Thrower” to me. None the less, well done for having a thought! The one question I have, is why you did not add a “STRONG SELL” to this post, as you are not describing a localised occurrence at Warwick, but a fractured basement wide phenomena? This could knock millions of barrels of Hurricanes’ 2C. I also note that your “idiot” mate, agreed with you, which tells me your theory is completely pants, so it is a buy from me.
IRAN (again) The U.S. will lose this. A strong Europe is vital to the U.S. but to understand Iran, you need to go back to begining, rather than regurgitate what you have just read in the Daily Mail. What the wars in the Middle East are really about & corruption within the U.S. government.
