I think the middle bossier is the "wild card" in EUR per unit on the Texas side. This could make a huge difference in places like San Augustine and Nacogdoches. The recovery numbers that Petrohawk used did not include any estimates for the mid-bossier. Thoughts?
I'm over in Texas in Shelby County. From what I've been told, I'm pretty much in the middle of the action but nothing happening for me as of now. Hopefully, something will in the near future. I'm not too far from the Shelby, San Augustine, Sabine County tri-county line.
Jay, I would say that may true where there is good well coverage but some areas may still lack sufficient well data to define the contours. For example, a well that tested at 28 MMcfd in RRP falls outside their 4 Bcf contour.
I'm hoping that is the case. We are outside of that 4 Bcf contour, but there is not enough well data on the NE side of the play. I'm also wondering if Petrohawk will dump some more acreage in the near future. I guess I'm still on the edge!
Dena, count down 5 small squares from the capital D in Do not plan to drill and then left 5 squares. This is Dixie Inn just at the top of the blue representing Dorcheat Bayou/Lake Bistineau. Dixie Inn is Section 31 of Township 19N - 9W. Township 18N - 10W is immediately to the southeast. Part of the township is in the white and part in the light beige. Yes,the southern most part of the township is just outside the purple line.
Thanks Skip for the direction on the map! I was not sure if I had it right .
I am in the bottom of that township, section 33,so I am in the beige area. Does that leave us out or is that a maybe? Thanks in advance for any info.
I have no way of knowing how accurate Petrohawk's map may be but I suspect that it is the most accurate we have seen to date. IMO, much of the area shaded in beige has producible shale but is not sufficiently productive to be economic at this time. With so much core left to drill and depressed prices it could be some years before the outer tiers are developed. At least your land is not inside one of the dotted line areas labeled Do not plan to drill.
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
