Location of wells.—
Whenever the division fixes the location of any well or wells on the surface, the point at which the maximum penetration of such well into the producing formation is reached shall not unreasonably vary from the vertical drawn from the center of the hole at the surface; provided, that the division shall prescribe rules, regulations and orders governing the reasonableness of such variation, and shall take into account technological advances in drilling and production technology, including, but not limited to, horizontal well completions in the producing formation using directional drilling methods.
