Drilling company seeks second road use and maintenance agreement

Staff report


Trumbull County commissioners are expected to approve a second road-use and maintenance agreement with Halcon Resources of Houston today, this one for a horizontal well to be drilled on Brunstetter Road in Lords-town.

Don Barzak, director of governmental affairs for Trumbull County Engineer Randy Smith, told the commissioners Tuesday he expects to have another such agreement to bring to commissioners for another Lordstown well within a couple of weeks.

Barzak said Halcon has been cooperative in writing the two agreements so far, approving all 10 or so suggestions from the county engineer’s office within one day without any argument.

Halcon’s first horizontal well using hydraulic fracturing is being drilled on Hayes-Orangeville Road in Hartford Township.

The road work Halcon will perform on portions of Halleck-Young Road, Highland Avenue and Brunstetter Road will take place in the spring, after the company has completed its drilling at the site, Barzak said.

In addition to the road-use and maintenance agreement, commissioners are expected today to approve a hauling permit to allow Halcon Resources of Kirila Boulevard, Hermitage, Pa., to haul or move overweight loads/oversized equipment and rig components over Hallock-Young Road, Highland Avenue and Brunstetter Road for the Brunstetter well, which Halcon said it most likely will drill in February.

The third Halcon well is likely to be drilled a month or so after that, Barzak said.
