Bob Wilson talks about Fracking in Illinois
Bob Wilson of Rig Ministries, and CEO of Les Wilson Inc. recently spoke to the Kiwanis here in Carmi about the upcoming fracking that so many are interested in here in Illinois.Bob will also be one of the guest speakers at the Kingdom Congress Conference on October 12 at the Fires of Revival Church located in Benton IL at 902 S. McLeansboro Street.Bob will be speaking on “The Art of Fracking.”
Bob Wilson has been in the oil industry all his life, he started out talking about his grandfather and how he began working in the oilfield at the age of 15.He hauled nitroglycerine with a team of horses to oilfield sites.The nitro was packed into the holes and ignited to open up formations.Oil men hoped to get oil, but sometimes they got water.There was no exact science.This was really the beginning of fracking and the process has continued over the years. Bob’s grandfather Leslie F. Wilson went on to start his own company in the oil field in 1940 and is the founder of Les Wilson drilling.Today we have become more modern and now we use big pumps which includes pumping water and non-harmful chemicals along with sand at high rate of speed with hopes of opening up formations.
Les Wilson Inc. recently drilled the vertical project for Strata X off Route 50 in Xenia,IL. And Strata X has a permit to frack at the end of October.This will be the gauge on what might happen here in Southern Illinois.Bob went on to explain that if they do hit oil through horizontal fracking, one pad can hold as many as eight wells 20 feet apart, once they know where they are going.These types of setups are called walking rigs.Bob told the Kiwanas club that there are several contractors right here in Southern Illinois who can take care of the needs.
Right now, vertical drilling in White County goes down about 4,000 feet deep.The new type of fracking will go deeper to about 8,000 feet.Once they reach the location they desire, they will go out horizontally 5,000 to 6000 feet and the technology today can keep a bit on the drill within one or two feet inside the pay zone.
The fracking projects are pricy, with the horizontal drills topping 1 million dollars.A vertical price tag runs about 150,000 dollars.
Bob said if fracking were to happen in this area with success, it would bring jobs in.However, he said his company is not investing in what might happen.They will react when it happens.
This town has been through several oil booms, said Mr. Wilson. “I really hope something does happen here.They can do all the science they can, but until they actually drill it, we won’t know.”
Bob noted that many regulations are in place for those working on the rigs, including mandated clothing, which requires FR jeans and shirts.The jeans have to be worn along with the long sleeve shirts, which is a OSHA rule.The clothing rule has been over turned in several states, but is still on the books in Illinois.
Mr. Wilson concluded by explaining there are all kinds of formations, and companies right now are just exploring.He did note that things are looking very promising for all who are involved in the oil industry at this time.
