MEMORANDUM
TO: Dr. Morgan
FROM: Ryan Hilton
DATE: September 3, 2015
SUBJECT: Well log info for Lion Well No. 1,

Dr. Morgan,
Schlumberger has provided the well log for Lion Well No. 1, located at Stringtown field in
Wetzel County, West Virginia. The well log and drilling depths were measured from the Kelly
bushing (KB) at an elevation of 1265 feet; five feet above the permanent datum located at ground
level (GL: 1260 feet above sea level). The bottom log interval was taken at a depth of 3262 feet
below KB or 1997 ft subsea; depth driller at 3269 feet below KB or 2004 ft subsea; and
Schlumberger depth at 3270 feet below KB or 2005 subsea.
The type of mud used was fluid based mud, with a density of 8.4 ppg, a fluid loss of 2 cm3, a
viscosity of 30 s, a pH of 6, and a RMF of 0.015 ohm.m at 80 degF. The borehole size is 6.500
in and the borehole temperature is 96 degF.
The types of well logs included were litho density, compensated neutron, and array
induction/gamma ray. Other services included a caliper. The well log contains four well log
measurements: two main logs, one repeat section, and one high resolution. The first main log
has a resolution of 5 inches per 100 feet, marked every 60 seconds; the depth interval is 188.5
feet to 3270.0 feet. The second main log has a resolution of 2 inches per 100 feet, marked every
60 seconds; the depth interval is 188.5 feet to 3270.0 feet. The repeat section has the same
resolution and time mark as the first main log and was taken over a depth interval of 3043 feet to
3282 feet. The high resolution log was taken over a depth interval of 3043 feet to 3282 feet, and
had a resolution of 1 inch per 100 feet.
The geothermal gradient is 0.014 degF/ft.

The well log footer indicates that the geothermal gradient is 0.01 degF/ft. At greater precision,
calculations show that:
