A place for discussion of oil and gas mineral activity in Avoyelles Parish which sits over the Austin Chalk, Tuscaloosa Trend and other formations.

Latest Activity: yesterday

The earliest record of a permit for an oil well in Avoyelles Parish is June 19, 1920 for the Bordelon well near Goudeau. Only four wells were permitted in Avoyelles in the 1920s, with two near Cocoville and one near Fifth Ward, In 1933 the Haas oil field was discovered south of Bunkie which set off an oil boom in this part of the parish. The Haas field still produces oil today. In the 1960s, there were several wells permitted during a second oil boom for the parish. In the 1970s, much of the parish was leased for the Tuscaloosa Trend which did not fan out. In 2009, drilling began in the deeper Austin Chalk formations, with exploration of the Tuscaloosa Shale coming soon. GEOLOGICAL LAYORS BENEATH AVOYELLES: Frio ~3,000 feet; Sparta at about 6.500 ft.; Wilcox ~12,000 feet; Austin Chalk ~15,300 feet; Eagle Ford ~15,800 feet; TMS below Eagle Ford.

Hello,

I am new on this part of the site but was wondering if anyone has information on the status of the Paul 15H. Are they still in the process of fracking? The 5/31/13 entry is the last one on the SONRIS site(listed below by David Crocket). Thanks in advance.

the paul 15h reached total depth on the 17th of may and set casing on the 19th.  i don't know if everything was completed on this well and they moved that rig, or if another one was moved in.  we will have to defer to an expert.

Does this mean that EOG has 2 rigs working in the area now?
