Usually means they're "flaring-off" the crappy gas that comes back up sporadically with the regurgitatin' frack fluid? Could take weeks or longer.

Re: Curious? Well site flame

After a company fracs a well, there is a period of time that you need to flow back a well in order to remove as much of the frac water and sand prior to putting into line for production. It does indeed mean they have gas. If it is a large flare then it could be a very good well although that is difficult to estimate from the flare alone. Congratulations, hope they have pipelines available so that they can start to sell the gas so you can receive your royalties.
