Avoyelles Parish

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

Location: Avoyelles Parish, Louisiana
Members: 69
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.

You are the man Skip!  I really appreciate all your help.  I cant say this will be the last time I will need your expertise!  I will definitely look at this link and see what I can find out.

KFH, no need to make the trip if you are willing to spend some time learning your way around the LA state O&G database, SONRIS.  You will find the answer to most of your questions there.  And from the comfort of your home easy chair and computer.  There is no requirement in LA law for an operator to inform you of their intention to drill a well.  You have to exercise some due diligence to track permitting and drilling on your minerals.  Use this link to get started.

I am new to this stuff, but I am learning fast. West wind Explorations came and leased our land back in March for 400 an acre with 25% royalties. However we live in Texas, have never seen the land and still havent received a rental production order or anything to say they are drilling. The land is located in Avoyelles section 6&7 T2S R3E. Can we are planning a trip down and have been in touch with Mr. Dupree for a plat of the property. But someone told us they were drilling, can anyone living there confirm that for me?

Halcon is now leasing tracts around Marksville at 500 an acre and 25 percent. What is also interesting is that they appear to be leasing some smaller tracts of ten acres or so, not just the big land owners.

I wonder how far east? Still in Avoyelles? There are some permits to drill in west of Morganza on the Atchaflaya bordering St. Landry Parish.

Comment by CajunClampett on April 10, 2012 at 9:15pm
Prime Energy's CEO spoke on their Board Room Radio and mentioned that their next well will be drilled east of the Deshotels 20H well starting in June and expect to drill a further well in 2012.

Thank you Skip. Thats the advice i needed. They are coming . Im in the Zone . Last Landman said to my Mother and Myself. Patience is the Key.

Guys, it's not a good idea to contact Woodland or any other broker/operator.  Much better to let them come to you.  If you contact them expect to get their lowest offer if they have any interest at all.  If your minerals are located where they are leasing they will get around to contacting you.
