NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Applicant requests that the Commission enter its order establishing a 640-acre horizontal drilling and spacing unit for the Mississippian, Woodford, Hunton and Sylvan common sources of supply underlying Section 15, Township 8 North, Range 17 East, Pittsburg County, Oklahoma. The Mississippian and Hunton common sources of supply are conventional reservoirs and as such the completion interval of a horizontal well in a horizontal well unit shall be located not less than 660 feet from any unit boundary. The Sylvan common source of supply is an unconventional reservoir and as such the completion interval of a horizontal well in a horizontal well unit shall be located not less than 330 feet from any unit boundary. The Woodford common source of supply is an unconventional reservoir and pursuant to OAC 165:10-29-2 the completion lateral of a horizontal Woodford well drilled in a horizontal well unit shall be located not less than 165 feet from any north/south unit boundary and not less than 330 feet from any east/west unit boundary. Due to changes in technological development horizontal drilling is more economical and prevents waste and protects correlative rights. The horizontal well unit may exist concurrently with any previously formed non-horizontal drilling and spacing unit, or any part thereof, and each such unit may be separately developed in that a well may be drilled into, completed in and produce hydrocarbons from the same common source of supply in each such concurrently existing unit with production from such well to be governed by and allocated pursuant to the applicable unit. Therefore, the following order is not being vacated: Order No. 130382 insofar as it established a 640-acre drilling and spacing unit for the Hunton common source of supply underlying Section 15, Township 8 North, Range 17 East, Pittsburg County, Oklahoma. There is no production from any non-horizontal well in the unit. NOTICE IS FURTHER GIVEN that the relief requested herein made be made effective prior to the issuance of this Order. NOTICE IS FURTHER GIVEN that this cause be set before an Administrative Law Judge for hearing, taking of evidence and reporting to the Commission. NOTICE IS FURTHER GIVEN that this cause will be heard before an Administrative Law Judge on the Initial Hearing Docket at the Corporation Commission, Eastern Regional Office, 440 South Houston, Tulsa, Oklahoma, 74127, at 8:30 a.m. on the 29th day of January, 2018 and that this notice be published as required by law and the rules of the Commission. NOTICE IS FURTHER GIVEN that in the event this cause is uncontested, the Applicant, its representatives, witnesses and other proponents of the Applicant may appear and testify by telephone. The cost of telephonic communication shall be paid by the person or persons requesting its use. Interested parties who wish to participate by telephone shall contact the Applicant or Applicant's attorney, prior to the hearing date, and provide their name and phone number.
