Busters Gate - Tilden, Texas, Sept 18 - 19

Thursday, September 18, 2014
Busters Gate - Tilden, Texas, 75 Degrees wind 7 SE 88 % humidity partly cloudy morning to 102 Degrees wind 12 SSE 29 % humidity mostly sunny.

Transport trucks showed up at our gate this morning, workover rig is moving out today. I kind of knew this was going to happen as the salesman for the transport company was here during the morning yesterday. So “for this gate” the vehicle count was above our average day count. The afternoon was exceptionally slow as there is no work going on at the well sites. We are here ready for anyone that show’s for work.

Busters Gate - Tilden, Texas, 78 Degrees wind 3 NE 92% humidity rain morning to 94 degrees wind 10 E 41 % humidity partly sunny. When I got up this morning Buster’s windshield was wet with rain. I did not hear anything so it was a light silent rain still cloudy and more is forecasted for today, just something to deal with. We did have that east wind gusting enough that I brought in the left window awning as the snapping was noisy, and the sun was past and not shining on that side (left side is east). We should be closing this gate as we are at the maximum time expected, ten days but we are here until released.

Later in the morning a crew came in for flowback, a function that takes place after a workover rig has been on a well. The crew usually is two men splitting the twenty-four hours with one watching or monitoring the well at all times. The time the flowback crew is on site vary’s from well to well.

  1. Wow! This is the second year in a row for flooding there. Wish we could have some of that rain. We missed it all. Hope they are all okay.
