I disagree with Checkmateking............It definitely is Tuscaloosa Marine Shale according to Mary L. Barrett, Ph.D., Professor Emeriti of Geology, Centenary College of Louisiana who presented at the Ark-La-Tex Association of Professional Landmen on Feb. 12, 2011. "The mapped TMS trend runs east-west across central Louisiana and into Miississippi. The TMS is fractured and over-pressured, and commonly live oil is present in its fractures. Its abrupt resistivity increases in the section of interest (which) is believed due to active petroleum generation, a characteristic common to other source rocks. A few old vertical wells are documented as producing from this shale. Distribution of petroleum fields in this region suggest the peak oil to wet gas window may occur at depths of 12,000-14,000 feet.
How am I doing, Jay?
Who is doing the leasing?
