Plat Maps and Well Pad Design

Swiss Valley Associates and Cathedral sponsored the spring project designed by the Energy Business Alliance at Marietta College.  The project for the spring semester of 2017 covered the design of a horizontal Utica/Point Pleasant well with the aid of local practicing engineers. The students have poured extensive time and research into this project and it will serve as part of their portfolios as they venture into the working industry. This information will be shared with many in the Oil & Gas industry through presentations, the students’ interviews, and employment applications. The students have received great feedback, enthusiasm, and praise on a “job well done” on the project from members of the Petroleum Engineering faculty and staff of Marietta College, leaders in the Oil & Gas industry, and the community.

Swiss Valley Associates drew the production unit plat maps for the proposed well. The production unit boundary for the south unit and 38H lateral were drawn using basemap CAD data provided by CESO.  The grading plan was drawn using aerial photography and LIDAR elevation data from the Ohio State Imagery Program.
