Going into the hole you add pipe, coming out of the hole you take away pipe..

It is snowing but the drillers don’t stop. When you are drilling a mile down you don’t leave the hole open long. The Earth doesn’t tolerate straws dipped into its reservoir and can close its teeth with a snap. 

You drill, test, lay pipe and produce, or plug the hole.

Trying to hit a target you can’t see and can’t know the size of , covered by roller coaster layers of Earth 4000 plus feet down, is tough.

A fair number of wells are busts.

A few  are bonanzas.

Every project looks good before you drill it or we wouldn’t be out here freezing our tails off.
