(1) A brief description of the well-completion procedures to be followed, a statement of the expected surface pressure, and type and weight of completion fluids;
(2) A schematic drawing of the well showing the proposed producing zone(s) and the subsurface well-completion equipment to be used;
(3) For multiple completions, a partial electric log showing the zones proposed for completion, if logs have not been previously submitted;
(4) When the well-completion is in a zone known to contain H2 S or a zone where the presence of H2 S is unknown, information pursuant to § 250.490 of this part; and
(5) Payment of the service fee listed in § 250.125.
