Packet Data/ Oil W-2 Cont’d Make sure to click Save after completed ! Date the well is capable of production by the flipping of a switch or turning of a valve Required Items 14
W-2 Oil Well Potential Test * * Enter Pump Size & Type if ‘Pumping’. Enter Choke Size, if Production Method is 'Flowing'. Test Date should be newer than the completion date but prior to the submittal date. * * Optional Items 15
W-2 Page 2 If Initial Filing this is the SPUD date If Initial Filing this may be the Rig Release Date Lease Line should match the permit exactly – if they don’t you may need an amended permit 16
W-2 Page 3 This is the Date Found on your GAU Letter Be Sure to bubble Yes if there are any additional surveys attached Only complete if Multiple Completion – not for workovers or downhole commingled wells 17 Rotation Time Within Surface Casing is a REQUIRED item
W-2 Page 4 Depth found on GAU Letter * Per SWR 13(b)(5)(a) All Flowing Oil wells must have Tubing Set unless an EXTENSION is granted by field rules. If the question is answered no you must provide an explanation and your allowable may be withheld. Optional 18
W-2 Page 5 19 Mark this question yes if there are no perforations and/or all perforations are isolated and incapable of production List all perforations that are currently open. If Open Hole check open hole, if horizontal or directional then select the appropriate lateral label. List any acidizing/ shot/ fracturing/ cement squeezes/ CIBP’s here with the affected depths. It is very important to list old perforations and how they were isolated here if recompleting a well to prevent a violation of SWR- 10. List any important information here, SWR 10 remarks are required.
W-2 Page 6 (Certification Page) 20 If this is marked No and there are no remarks then the well may be processed incorrectly and permit will be closed out. A Recompletion permit will be required to correct the well status and completion data.
