Big Thicket National Preserve » Famcor Oil Inc Carroll No. 2 & 3 and 4 & 5 Directionally Drilled Wells » Document List

The National Park Service (NPS) is reviewing a proposal from the Famcor Oil, Inc. (Famcor) to directionally drill and produce privately held minerals at two surface locations outside Big Thicket National Preserve (BTNP), each having bottom hole targets beneath BTNP. The Famcor Carroll No. 2 & 3 wells would be located on a newly constructed twin well pad sited on private surface approximately 80 feet south (at the nearest point) of the Big Sandy Unit in Polk County, with both bottom hole locations being approximately 5100 feet beneath the unit. The Famcor Carroll No. 4 & 5 well would be located on private surface on an existing well pad (the vertical Carroll No. 1 well pad) approximately 245 feet east (at the nearest point) of the Big Sandy Unit in Polk County with both bottom hole targets approximately 5100 feet beneath the unit. All infrastructure and access for these four wells will be located entirely on private proprety with no use of BTNP surface.
