Are we finally seeing the Austin Chalk activity we have been waiting for?
Thanks Jay. we have been leased in the past and even been drilled but it was a wilcox play.. i know the Ac/TMS are 18k below from all the maps i have reviewed. maybe a 3D shoot in the future would reveal something worth exploring...thx for response.. shawn
Actually the Austin Chalk overlays Tucaloosa Marine Shale. That is pretty deep for oil but not for gas.
Thanks,,, still learning. Appreciate the info provided. The shoot they are talking about around Bunkie and Lebeau is due east of us about 20 miles. seems as though the AC/TMS would be just as deep there. hope that 3D shoot goes well and they pursue the 17-18k depth..
Avoyelles Today article on the chalk
Thanks for post Craig, im very interested in all news coming out of Avoyelles parish. This site is my only source as of now. Hope things heat up by this summer as we are very encouraged with the depth they are willing to explore. shawn
Suggestion. Considering that GHS is a unique information source, why not spread the word and recruit more members. The more input, the better. Tell your neighbors. Tell the local paper or radio station that there are substantive discussions going on that may be of value to their audience. And may help them to cover the emerging AC play. Knowledge is power. And mineral/land owners deserve all the help they can get in making informed decisions that are important to their and their family's future well being.
Thanks Skip, will make some contacts in Ville Platte, La. and Opelousas as both areas have alot of rumors floating of things picking up around here.
Thanks. No telling where significant info may come from. Or who it might help.
Great suggestions Skip. The more information that is shared on this site, the better off the mineral owners are. Because basically we are all in this together. I have not been approached for a lease yet, but I think that there are still lots of companies that are leasing at this point. Maybe not leasing yet is a good thing. Got my fingers crossed for some good wells to come in. But Information is tight at this point and this is basically all we have.
Great suggestion. I wasable to guide people to get the information out about the Lower Wolfcamp here in the Permian on another shale site by taking the boots on the ground approach. Those of you in the area tell us what you see, this information is valuable to mineral owners. Do you see seismic crews, pipelines being surveyed, holding tanks being built. Franc ponds being built. Sand transfer stations being built. Salt water disposal wells being permitted. My saying was follow the dust and the money. In your case it might be follow the mud and the money. How many white trucks with plates from other states are showing up at your local diner? This stuff adds up after a while!! Tell us what you see and hear some of it will be rumors but a lot of it will be helpful.
Spoke to senior field operator for hilcorp in ville platte field yesterday. they are drilling shallow directional wells in wilcox play only. they aren't pursuing AC/TMS at all. However, they are hearing crazy rumors on the number of wells Petroquest may be drilling just east of I-49 and south of Bunkie. Good news for those people in the area. hope they are successful and stimulate some leasing and exploration our way..
