Ms. Conner,

By "Cameron", are you referring to Cameron Parish? If so, the TMS is a non-issue there since it is very very deep and essentially beyond any drilling capability.

Drilling in Cameron Parish confined to limited area conventional reservoirs and O&G traps - usually defined by seismic over the years.

What about Cameron ? Any hopes there ?
Comment by Rock Man on June 28, 2015 at 1:28pm

TMS is very thin and therefore uneconomic in the Beauregard Parish area. As Skip has indicated, the primary "deep play" in that Parish would be the Wilcox (overpressured, expensive wells).

Shallower targets in the past have included the Hackberry, Yegua and Frio. Numerous 3D's have been shot to attempt to exploit this and surrounding areas. I was once involved in 3D based drilling program in Jeff David, Allen and Beauregard in the 90's.

I am aware of two wells drilled in the last three years to test the TMS, or the LA Eagleford as some call it, - one in far south Sabine and one in Vernon Parish.  Both wells were plugged & abandoned.  Those involved with one of the tests told me there were insufficient hydrocarbons present to make  a commercial well.  The Beauregard Parish production is predominantly Wilcox focused as far as I know.

Ms. Connor - in my opinion, economic Tuscaloosa Marine Shale Play does not extend to Beauregard Parish. Skip is better qualified to answer you're specific question.

Ms. Connor .. I am retired so I can'answer your question without looking at the recent data.
I do have several observations. These concern comparing the TMS with the same age Eagle Ford of South Texas.
1. The TMS is not not as organically rich.
avg. 3% TOC (total organic carbon) vs
10% in the Eagle.Ford.
2. The TMS has more clay in it and is gene

Ken, in Layman terms , what does that mean? Any hope for dry Creek ! Please

And now we look back at Devon's decision to exit the play. Yes, it was and is a good example of good science and the decision to spend capital elsewhere. Goodrich implied DVN "did not know where to go horizontal". Not the case because the purpose of science (read exploratory wells) is to examine all possibilities. My question is........who is laughing now.
