Pearsall should work in that area - question will be to what degree. Cheyenne is making 100 BC per MMCF Pearsall completions in NE LaSalle - but the big question is does the high liquid yield persist to the west of that area? Or does it go quickly into the dry gas Pearsall section (e.g. what is seen in Dimmit County)
The Pearsall is the unconventional resource play option that would work. Conventional play options in the Sligo, Buda, Georgetown, Edwards, etc. would work if there is trap / structure / proper set up to give one economic volumes. The source is there - just need a trap!
Bill, you are in a good part of the Eagle Ford trend in my opinion. Eagle Ford shale thickness is pretty consistent along strike (i.e. NE to SW) thru this area. El Paso has completed some very good wells along this trend in LaSalle closer to the Dimmit County line. I would definitely say you are in gas / condensate trend with high liquid yields and rich (high Btu) gas. Only issue that would concern me if I were you is who will be drilling your acreage. THe Eagle Ford (again IMO) is a tough play with lots of potential to mess things up. Lateral placement, lateral length, frac design and how the well is actually produced over time are all key issues. An inexperienced EF operators who doesn't understand the intricacies of this play can end up drilling a less than ideal well if he doesn't do things the right way.
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
