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.

Rabalais 35 No.1 Drilling Update Turner Bayou Chalk Project

The Rabalais 35 No.1 well in North Bayou Jack Field on Yellow Bayou south of Simmesport has reached a total length of 15,100 feet (4,600 metres) through the upper portion of the Austin Chalk formation. 

The vertical section of the well has been logged to evaluate the Austin Chalk section and the intermediate string of casing cemented in place. Cores are currently being taken and drilling of the 7,000 foot (2,130 metre) horizontal section is due to begin later this week.
